How many conditions are there? For us? For them? For you & them, and us? Are we to be conditioned? Or are we conditional, to the condition…so to speak? How many conditions are there? Conditionally why are we to condition under or inside a conditioned framework? Why ask more of us? Or less? Less may be more appropriate, conditionally. Conditioningly conditions have a conditional quality to them. It’s like, you can’t really trust the condition of anything because it is always subject to change. So what doesn’t? I’ve seen a man with unbreakable faith. You could say or muse he was conditioned into the unbreakable faith, & that it–the faith– is a condition in itself. One that, in the man’s case, seems to be at peak strength with no wavers no shakes no vibrations alerting anything or anyone a possibility of change. And look, it’s not that I set out to immediately argue against myself here or to prove myself wrong quickly with an example immediately thereafter but hey it looks like this breaks any sort of conditional theory about faith being always subject to change, and that though the objects & memories & figures of who it is worshipped on the surface do change & have changed for all of time as we have recorded it, and that though that is thus a fact the underlying condition of faith, for some, is an exception to the conditioned rule of staying the same. I think of the man who is in war captured by enemies & broken by their nutritional offerings and physical trauma deliverings. That is the kind of opposite conditioning we originally were thinking about. Like, the war is going to be long and he is going to be captive for many years. And so he just gets used to it, his body adapts by shortening his life expectancy to survive in the here and now. That is his condition. Now, say, you have the teenager aloft with no grasp of mortality youthing in some vehicle and who, like the man, is conditioned in all ways, but who, unlike the man, has 2 unknowingly hours to live (fatal car crash), so say you have him…what are his conditions? What conditions are most apparent? What is running his life and is subject to change? His crush? The girl who he denies love for the pursuit of another who desires him less? A crushing crash for this young man and the world will not flutter except on a small level in the hearts of his family and most especially, most probably his mother and the girl who loved him. All conditions. These are all conditions. Faith though, we found, is exceptionally conditional.
