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?
