A candle doesn't lose its flame by lighting another candle. Aw, isn't that heartwarming and inspiring? It really does speak to the indomitable beauty of the human spirit, to its innate nobility and dignity. Really, if one could ignore all the death, emotional trauma, ugly (and sometimes criminal) behavior, and sci-fi/fantasy weirdness the experiment engendered among so many over the years, one could see thrown into sharp relief all that is good and worthy about humanity. It is at first blush an epic waste of everyone's time that I, and not just I, turned into something useful, educational and edifying. Thank you to whoever had the bright idea of squishing together the noggins of a not-terribly-apt sociopath and a batshit insane fag on meth who has a high IQ and a great deal of empathy. I'd like to think when this whole production finally wraps up, we'll all be better for it.
(While I have yet to be actually, concretely dealt with in reality -- "reality" being program's synonym for meatspace -- and should therefore worry about my own hide, I can't help but feel pity for Frank H. If what I suspect is true, his is going to be a sad denouement. My heart goes out to him. I hope he finds a good place where he's cared for and loved as best as the principals in the situation can demonstrate love. Maybe you could "Area 51 his ass." All he needs is food, water, and protection from anything with which he might accidentally injure himself. And last I heard, he loves to play Cocaine and Dollhouses.)
P.S. Was that program really a refinement of and capitalization on those early MKUltra experiments that were such a scandal back in the day? I'm literally dying to know. (God, my intellectual curiosity will be the death of me...)
