We're superior because, freed from the OBLIGATION to make sense, we

are capable of making more sense than anyone else could have dreamed.

We can look at a society of random bullfuvg and turn it into universal

truth. While still maintaining knowledge of the physical reality, the

reality advocated by the Conspiracy, we can delve into other forces

that shape reality, and by not posing a threat to them, gain the

knowledge of Odin. Or perhaps this is all metaphysical bullshit and we're all

deluding ourselves. That's the beauty of it.

More than that- it allows us to believe contradictory things at the

SAME TIME. The ULTIMATE GULLIBILITY of the Subgenius is what brings

her into a position where he can appreciate the ULTIMATE TRUTH- the

knowledge that PROFUNDITY IS STUPID. Truth is not concentrated in a

series of logical, rational statements- it's spread out among all the

amassed constructs of reality. By becoming the embodiment of LIES, we

gain immunity to their power, and thus can see the truth hidden in the

lies, while using our position as KING OF THE LIES to set them against

each other, kind of like the way the Justice Society of America was

sent off to that other dimension to fight Ragnarok for all eternity,

leaving us to just relax, and grab all the SLACK for ourselves. Dig?
