Humour?

A correspondent suggested I need humour in the Blog, and this is what I replied. I thought it might amuse you:

“Good words and thoughts to go by. But my Blog is aimed not only at those who have had the Experience of Reality, but those who study it, scholars and scholarly readers.

Scholars are a very sensitive lot, with strict thinking disciplines and presentations. Humour has to be very carefully used, in case the humourist is labelled, “flippant”. Humour is best avoided by ​”noobies” in any context scholars consider to be their domain. This is an ironic state of affairs because those who have had the Experience are noted for their profound sense of humour; they take human affairs very lightly and the presence of their like has been noted in the appointment in the courts of the wise as “jesters”. Very often they are great personal advisors to emperors and kings, even presidents. Nevertheless, the truth when wrapped in “flippancy” can be even more cause for offence to those who are tenured to take the human condition seriously.

“Good point though, many thanks.”

Keith.
