 Chuck's Vanity Card, aired: 28 February 2011

I understand that I'm under a lot of pressure to respond to certain statements made about me recently. The following are my uncensored thoughts. I hope this will put an end to any further speculation.

I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individuation, the false feeling of being separate. In other words, I am aware, ergo I am alone. I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness. This explains the paradox of our culture, which celebrates the ego while simultaneously promoting its evisceration with drugs and alcohol. It also clarifies our deep-seated fear of monolithic, one-minded systems like communism, religious fundamentalism, zombies and invaders from Mars. Each one is a dark echo of an oceanic state of unifying transcendence from which consciousness must, by nature, flee. The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace. Or perhaps more accurately, "Screw Grace, I am so outta here!"

Your not alone. I share the same misery, except the pressures to respond to certain statements as they say fu*# what they say man. Write on brother.

Please continue to be you. Please continue with your work which I enjoy and find brilliant and insightful.

I hope you believe that being truly you is DNA, instinctual and mandatory for the creative process. That the journey takes us willing or unwilling on a hell of a journey. That the direction of that journey is something called a truth or the truth. That the brave try to find this for themselves and the heroic try to find common ground and share this hard-found wisdom. That wisdom is not the same as wisdumb.

All the best. Go brave, go hard, go true.

Well said. Watching the Sheen/Two Men debacle has captivated everyone and I feel that's where it began to go wrong. I'm not sure what is up with your friend, but at the end of the day he is going to choose to get past this or not. Hopefully, he has the strength to what is in his best interest and that of his children.

I like your point about being humble. So many people in and out of the biz lack that quality. Thanks for the reminder. It's my food for thought today:)
