… And the Ugly

This is the third of three articles. The first is The Good… and the second is …The Bad….

I want to help people — myself included — see past the surface.

Image of an Ugly Guy

This is an image of Sandor “The Hound” Clegane’s personality. The Yellow shows he is realistic and open to new experiences, and the Green shows he is rational.

Sandor’s personality is the opposite of Padme Amidala, the Queen of Naboo’s personality, whose spiritual portrait contains more Red (showing she is passionate) and Blue (showing she is idealistic).

To learn more about how this image represents Sandor Clegane’s personality, see the page describing his spiritual portrait at SeeOurMinds.com.

The Ugly Things About All This

One Ugly thing is, some people steadfastly refuse to see past the surface. They focus on others’ superficial qualities, such as gender, age, race, religion, height, weight, etc., and filter everything they see and hear through prejudices. These prejudices are, more often than not, based on their superficial differences.

Another Ugly thing is, some people are extremely closed-minded, may find my desire to see past the surface as arrogance, and use this as a basis for attack.

And the really Ugly thing is, some people use superficial traits to create divisions between people and even foment hatred between superficially dissimilar groups.

Moreover, I can’t help but feel that some people will undoubtedly be offended by my desire to see past the surface — past the qualities that fuel their hatred — and beyond the entrenched prejudices that, to some, are more important than life itself.

This ugliness only serves to increase my sense of urgency.

The Horror

I see no way to escape the wrath of the trolls. It’s getting to the point where a person can’t express any opinion online without someone rudely taking exception.

Newsflash: I know these images are “just a bunch of squares.” Like, duh!

Moreover, I believe that some people feel a subconscious need to insult others and their work to compensate for some perceived lack in themselves. Yes, people like that do exist.

Some people are simply unaware of Kandinsky’s Triangle. Some might refuse to acknowledge the reality of it, and fewer still are interested in participating in the movement of it ever upward.

The Bottom Line

“I don’t care about the shape I’m in, I can’t sing I ain’t pretty and my legs are thin. Don’t ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to!”
Oh Well by Fleetwood Mac

I have decided to address this inevitable negativity only once — and this is it.

I fart in your general direction!

Yes, I’m doing this preemptively, so I won’t have to waste any more time than I need to on the closed-minded dumb-asses who refuse to make the minimal effort required to “get it.”

And now it’s back to work on exercising my Artistic License! Bwahahahaha!
