I wish scientists would play by their own rules and give me the nobel prize I so richly deserve. The universe is screaming that I am a super genius but scientists say, is scientific evidence really scientific evidence. I have to live a life of total humiliation because america, and the scientific community are so evil. I onced, on camera, asked my psychologist, what is the mind, he just stared in to the camera like a moron, I said, what's up, he said we did not have the time for him to answer that question, of course, if he had forever he could not answer that question. I see this as one of the most important moments in the history of the world, they say people don't understand history is being made when it is being made. We had a strange relationship, we could tell each other anything, he told me incredible stories showing how afraid of Vets people who worked at the va are. He told me incredible things about his patients. He told me very insane sounding things that he believed in. He was always trying to impress me. Once he gave me a paper he wrote, he said he was somebody fancy in psychological circles, a paper that was published, it was like reading equations that I had no clue what they meant. One minute my psychologist was my best friend, he said I would get my va disability no problem, then we were having a casual conversation, not insane like usual, and he just flipped out, had a panic attack, he was humiliated then screwed me out of my disability. I guesstorize that they showed him video of me in action which made him terrified of me. I asked a Doctor on the radio, what is the mind, she said, it is emergent phenomenon that comes out of the brain, I said then, yes, but what is the mind, she said, I just told you, it is bla, bla, bla, of course her answer explained nothing. Science is the biggest lie ever told, it is not debatable, it is a scientific fact, even if I am insane, if if science is true, it is a lie, because scientists can not prove incredible things that people think are facts, science is just another religion, except for some philosophy, and some psychology, and maybe some mathematics. I am too ignorant about mathematics at this time to know for sure, but Dr. Carleen has really opened my mathematical mind. You will be able to see that video I talked about at some day, when I work up the courage to call those morons at apple. Some people who worked for that doctor claimed to have the super sexual power that I used to have when I was young, I think they lied, I must reclaim that super sexual power, and claim others.
