No, I'm not concerned that I'm adequately or properly Satanic. I'm not aware of a system of rules that, when applied, lead to a Satanic perspective on an issue that would not otherwise arise.
Rather, I might be looking to glean from another's perspective on something that I've never encountered or thought of before myself, and then ponder for myself, "How is that Satanic?" Or, "How would that serve me?"
Finding elegant or even novel solutions to given problems or perspectives on issues... Yes.
There are just things that never occurred to me before.
For instance, I remember first coming here years ago and reading about the so-called third perspective. What's that? Drimlybunk gave me an excellent example of it, showing how the whole issue of pro-life and pro-choice wasn't as dichotomous as it is so widely believed to be.
In fact, I had always found myself struggling to reconcile how I felt about abortion and finding neither side quite fitting my views. The Responsibility to the Responsible view, when he mentioned it, was perfect. Once I had that concept or that elegant solution to my dilemma, I had it to apply everywhere I found it problematic to pick a side.
Drimlybunk showed me something that I had that I didn't realize.
He didn't do so with a koan, praxis, or indirect example, but he could have. I may or may not have gotten it as quickly, but I'd might have had the same "Aha!".
I'm rather taken with Tier Instinct's recent reply. I haven't mistaken Satanism as non-selfish, altruistic, or anything like that, but I may have discounted how selfishness renders my idea pointless. Satanism being inherently selfish, any submission like what I had described could/would sail over the heads of anyone else who read it.
So, at this point, I see no reasonable recourse other than to admit the now evident error in my original thinking, declare this thread of mine still-born, and leave it be.
I got something out of all this at least, and I appreciate everyone's feedback that made it obtainable. Hopefully, this isn't such a train wreck that others can't, too.
