I don’t know about you, but I like to meditate and I have been known to take meditation classes.
Like most people, my meditation methods are based on the practice of sitting silently and focusing on a single thought. If I am meditating, I feel as if I am meditating.
I had a friend who claimed to be a meditation expert. His name was Robert and he was quite well-known in the meditative community for his books and his meditation courses. He was really into meditation and seemed to be quite knowledgeable about the subject. The thing is, Robert wasn’t really a meditator. He was a musician and lived in a house he owned with his wife.
According to Robert, the whole thing about meditation was a lie. He also claimed he was a qualified doctor. He gave himself the name “Doctor Robert” because he used to take courses on meditation and was able to meditate by just thinking about it. As he told me, “I have never been a ‘meditator’, and as such I am not qualified to give you any sage advice. You must have your own reason for meditating.
It seems Robert is a very intelligent man, but he’s also a very shallow man. He would not have been able to live with himself being a hypocrite. He used to be the head of security for a bunch of Visionaries who were all living in this house with his wife, in this house with his wife and a bunch of other Visionaries he used to be head of security. When he said so, he also claimed that he was a qualified doctor.
I guess that’s the key, isn’t it? If Robert were a doctor, he wouldn’t be able to say he was qualified to give sage advice. He would be a doctor and he would cheat on his wife.
It’s not just Robert that thinks there’s something wrong with him, its also the other Visionaries. For example, we see Colt’s wife (the one who was previously married to him) and his other wife (who is now a widow) talking to Colt about how he’s cheating on them. That’s weird because they both claim to love him. It’s also strange how Robert is always trying to get them to love each other. He can’t seem to help himself.
Its like he just wants to be loved by them. And they both seem to forget he was once married to his ex-wife. Maybe by coincidence, or maybe because they know that they love him.
And finally, we see a man talking to a ghost that makes him realize that there is more to life than death. He even talks of how he was once a person in a world where people were happy and content. Maybe that was the beginning of him not being able to take his happiness for granted.
