Today we came to know of Lama Thunderbolt, a motion picture and testament to the narcissism of Max Christensen. Max's dad was allegedly dosed with Agent Orange, and Max was supposedly struck by lightening as a child. As the result of these events, we're expected to believe that he's now a magical being with all kinds of awesome powers:
Knowing the significance of what had happened, Master Wu Xiao Deng took Max to downtown Detroit to observe people. He'd met many people prior to this, but was surprised to find that he was now able to see "the face behind" the face they presented. He could see the hidden pain and suffering that most humans carry and was overcome with compassion. It was at that point that he decided to take the Bodhisattva vow, an agreement with the divine, dedicating his life to helping others.Once again, the subjective musings of a mind convinced of its own "magic" are foisted upon us as some kind of divine intervention, rather than as the symptoms of the psychopathology known as self-aggrandizing gurudom.
Of course, the world is full of folks who will flock to this fool. With so many expecting so much, Lama Dorje is sure to continue to manifest as many miracles as there are dupes willing to believe in them.
