vertical line this is an example of Football writing his thoughts without thinking of them. He is just showing how 'things are'.

His statement is the same as when asked to explain something without thinking of the answer (and just allowing the answer without thought) (like at night when u go to the toilet there is no thought it just occurs)

He is not sarcastic he is just honest.

this statement is same as 'frog, jumps plop'.

Because everything is one and any idea of seperation is illusion this simple statement of Football has all the wisdom of eternity in it. (if we could but see)

haha yes you do (want to manipulate) because you know your choice of topic may stir people up to resppond in a way so you may argue with them afterwards. You attempt to elicit  a certain response this is manipulation.

I think we all do this to a extent, i am not picking on you.

What u provide is a direct experience of the way thoughts work :) this is a good thing for everyone to learn.
