I am both the fork and the mouth and I run through all the days of your life.

I am both the fork and the mouth and I run through all the days of your life. I am that which is beyond belief though the foolish never realize this. I am the ever-renewing now though my true nature is outside any line of time. I only seem to emerge but the self-styled super smart men are slowly beginning to dimly realize that this is a great and laughing illusion. All that you are is a result of me and I comprise the always-new clothing of the cosmic emperor so riddle me ree: what are you and what am I?

      Excellent. Your answer is wrong but I like your attitude though I do not see myself as a teacher. Just another pilgrim trying to find some way that makes sense.. The answer to the original content riddle in the OP is thought, consciousness, the mindstream. I'm not sure how good I am at riddles but they interest me as an overlooked form of art that seems cool and not gay like most other forms of art tend to be such as poetry. The first riddle is derived from this riddle I found in a book about riddles and it gave me the idea to use parts of it to describe the stream of consciousness. Whether all the ideas in the compound riddle (is that a thing?) are accurate or not does not matter, nor does the fact that I adopted some buddhist ideas. The first line in the dhammapada attributed to the core teaching of Siddhartha is the following: ALL THAT YOU ARE IS A RESULT OF WHAT YOU HAVE THOUGHT

      This is an idea which I can be critical toward yet still smacks of undeniable truth

        I dont think its quite correct to say it like that. Its more like think about spirituality all day and become spiritual. Become what you think in a sense but there is still objectivity. You cant become an apple can you?

          Well, that idea came from Siddhartha and I agree that it could not possibly be quite correct. But it is interesting to me in that it is correct, if one were to realize that he is scum not unlike the rest of humanity he will go forth and try to become less scum and with great irony become more pernicious scum until he realizes that accepting himself as scum and stop being a fricking white knight is the closest one can get. Maybe making art but who knows. Basically the idea that you are beyond any belief structure is ironically placed in counterpoint to the idea that you can change by thinking or imagining yourself being different, which inspires my next hyper-riddle,. Super gay and arrogant but i am a man, hubris is my main attribute.,

            I was making fun of myself for thinking of these riddles I compose as a 'hyper-riddle'. I recently learned that I am indeed possessed of hubris and greed and wrath and that is because of this answer to this riddle and there is no escape.

            The layers and dimensions with which I operate are unknown and maybe unknowable. With a left and a right hand I move and cut grooves on what is above and below and it is through me that any becoming is likely born. I am the life that emerges from death and I am the death of men who live by the sword. I am the mechanism that makes those full of hate deformed by my ultra poetic fate. I am the e-type iron and this is nature of my grip.

            Interesting that the unbending nature of the slav is mentioned but I know what that really means. It does not make them invincible but rather prone to breaking I'm afraid. I have learned that there many ways to be strong but to be resilient is by far the best, and this often means radical transformation of belief with great alacrity. This is the symbol of maybe not what I am but what I want to be, the bendy-arm star.

            Its because the word slave comes from slav not that they ever were particularly slaves but because they are hard workers. Depending on who you ask bohemian people word is actually robot. Literally they were called robot just like you say they are german. Thats where it came from and they are generally also accepted as being Slavic derivative or offshoot. Theres actually a famous czech play about it.

      the cosmic emperor part is one I'm not sure about but can be solved by imagining God as the source of all consciousness, which can not be seen, thus it may be forgiven that I compare it to the story of the emperors new clothing. The part about the fork and the mouth comes from the idea of a river which is how I perceive consciousness but i suspect that our perception of the arrow of time is an illusion.

          The idea I wanted to transmit most was what I have recently learned concerning belief, and the manner in which I realized that I am something that is beyond my beliefs and what I am must be the spark or pool of consciousness entangled in this body. I like the idea of tying up big ideas inside a puzzle that must be solved if you want to learn something new because I believe that while I do not know the truth or possess great knowledge I still have something that people should hear about but I don't think it should be for free that I communicate these things. They should come after some effort and ideally through the demonstration of some intelligence. I did not come about learning that what I am is some kind of bound consciousness easily, and in line with what I suspect is a rule in this universe I will not just come out and proclaim that we are more than our often foolish and scum-like belief structures, that our true nature is consciousness.
