Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I think there must be a great deal to be said about the social value of imaginary identities. Unfortunately, I can't think of any. However the good Doctor Liebenscheiss has a great deal to say. His thesis is that imaginary identities are essentially all we have as a medium into the shared material universe, and that ALL identities are imaginary; therefore, the exercise of creative talent invested in standing up and fleshing out such identities is the spiritual equivalent of going to the gym and pushing bars of metal around wearing Spandex pants.
