Humour.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

The perceived need to humour television viewers almost continuously is perplexing. It is as if we all need a huge, and very regular, dose of this medicine lest we fall in a heap of mental trauma. Is there really such a need or is it something drummed up by psychologists in the marketing field? If there really is a need our civilization has delivered us another malady.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    I found out that in real relentless laughter, thoughts and opinions disappear completely.
    Perhaps sitcoms and the like attract people to feeling a pale shadow of that freedom.

      . . . . and getting a quick fix? That is the pity because “band aids” are the same – as is the beauty of a rainbow which one can never reach!.

        Aldous Huxley seems to have been right on the spot with ‘brave new world’. Unfortunately, George Orwell’s message of doom, 1984, is also becoming very close – with our invasion of privacy using the internet and its databases by the governments.
