    See bolded part from the lyrics of the “song” (yeah, it’s a song...) Strange and Unproductive Thinking by David Lynch. Listen to it on youtube:


    Bearing all the aforementioned dialogues we discover the possibilities of
    The curve towards progressive behavior and the ultimate realization of the
    Goal of evolution, which grants the benefits of added awareness with
    Unlimited boundness of happiness, also known as bliss, which is a result of
    The laws which govern physical behavior merging with the highest levels of
    Spirit, and together manifesting the magical and mystical level of cosmic
    Awareness, becoming one with the longing for complete surrender to the
    Higher self, which has potentially been waiting these long eons of time
    And in fact sometimes has been dipping into a state of semi-sleep or
    Unconsciousness, bordering on complete absence of thought

    Specifically, the areas concerning the new futuristic thinking have to do
    With several abstract, somewhat hidden, emotional tendencies which lead one
    To believe that the consequences of interaction between the positive and
    Negative forces are producing a vital link between the subconscious and
    Super conscious minds, which therefore can only be considered as actual
    Structures with two separate and distinctly different qualities

    As we have seen, when one or more intensely feeling energies become
    Associated with the higher levels of perceptible phenomenon, and these new
    Forms are then instantly acted upon by the two minds previously discussed
    And brand new associations are given over with resulting problems sorting
    Out the new strains of emotional and physical qualities we see cropping up
    In schools and places of business across the country, and in the cities
    Which of course have the added complications of the much-argued-over
    Proposition that one cannot tolerate the existence of two or more intensely
    Opposing ideas at one point in time


    Others may find it easier to say "however," and that thought alone is one
    Which troubles many of us here who have for so long held the light up on
    The words which brought meaning to us concerning the amount of effort it
    Takes to ignite a certain process leading one to the knowledge of the truce
    Behind the alternating essence which is unending without actually
    Beginning, and in those words of course is the key to beginning a long
    Journey toward understanding which, as we have learned, is something for
    Which each human being cries out, cupping his hands over the mouth

    Sometimes in the evenings a feeling of the type which haunts young children
    In the forest will come in on a dark wind, and all the light will fade
    Leaving a low sound penetrating the eyes, which follow the dark shapes
    Running for safe nests just out of reach of small white teeth and noses
    Filled with dirt going up over the mountains covered with tall trees and
    Green needles and red bark with pitch oozing out into the air, which dries
    It on the surface causing it to become crusty which allows for the
    Protection of all that lies within the crust, for it will now remain liquid
    And hold itself remaining in a state close to that of the pure essence
    Which will remind us of home, which will remind us of the red cookie-jar
    And the smiles dancing around in the golden afternoons, while the pipe
    Puffs out small clouds of smoke from the mouth of the father with an axe to
    Cut wood growing on the tall mountains

    In order to assure that the fundamental qualities inherent in the solutions
    To modern philosophical questions are accurate, the first and foremost
    Consideration lies in the field of abstractions associated with the loss of
    Nature, and with them the interaction of the primary forces of life itself
    Which have now been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to have their basis
    In the field of the absolute in the vacuum state bringing to mind that
    There has been a reversal of sorts of the age-old phrase, "You can't get
    Something from nothing." As we have seen this kind of thinking which has
    Been going on since the beginning of time is just a smoke-screen necessary
    To block almost all truthful inquiries for centuries following, and it is
    With this also on our minds that we see that the initial thinking on a
    Subject is critical to all that follows, and can be an excellent partner to
    The dark and evil forces which would have us living forever in darkness and
    Confusion, refusing even to acknowledge that we even existed, or that there
    Was such a thing as a bad tooth, or a tooth-ache

    Bringing our discussion to the realm of practical considerations, it is
    Interesting to note the possibilities of dental hygiene and the remarkable
    Idea of a world free of tooth-decay and all other problems associated with
    The teeth, tongue, or oral cavity, which would, in fact, become a prime
    Motivator for a certain disappearance of fears associated with pain
    Connected with dental applications, and even the idea that plaque could
    Appear upon the surface of the teeth, and the negative occurrences which
    Follow such as the hideous odors emitted from the oral cavity and the
    Discolorations and the resulted perforation of the once beautiful mental
    Images, and the possibility of the breaking of relationships based upon the
    Idea of negative distortion of the mouth, for teeth, while not necessarily
    Considered one of the primary building blocks of happiness, can in fact
    Become a small sore, festering and transferring negative energies to the
    Once quiet and peaceful mind, giving it over to strange and unproductive
    Thinking

    Strange and unproductive thinking
    Strange and unproductive thinking
    Strange and unproductive thinking

    Funny you change the word "ideas" to "facts" and boom, right out of Orwell's 1984.

    That has got to be one of the most wanky studies of the last 100 years.
    With that said, I’m sure there could be a meaningful study on Melinda the witch.
    I’ll volunteer since it’s a dirty job....

    I'll never understand why some should get so hot and bothered by exposure to opposing viewpoints, even to the point of wanting to silence them or shut them down. To me this only shows a frailty in your own convictions. If a counterargument threatens you, then what does that say about your own argument? Opposing viewpoints can be incredibly valuable. They can cause you to refine or strengthen your own viewpoint, and in some cases they may cause you to overhaul or abandon your own viewpoint! (as scary as that sounds). There's no value in an echo chamber, or as some of our more coarse members may refer to it, a "circle jerk". There's no intellectual growth. If you believe a certain viewpoint (like racism) to be toxic, then demonstrate why it is, trounce their arguments. Don't shut them down with violence and threats, otherwise it makes it look like your own opinions are indefensible.

    I don’t mind opposing view points as long as they are accurate and not based on hearsay and falsehoods.

    Yup, there are people like Trump who will spout falsehoods as truth making their whole argument moot. I don’t want to argue with fools who won’t do their research.
