|5 The man who is certain has no need to inform himself further,
6 aAnd his education is complete when he declares that it is,
7 bAnd his decisions are always final because there is no way to challenge his logic,
8 Which is certain,
9 And beyond thought.
CHAPTER 341 When you have been hurt or are unhappy or dissatisfied with the current state of affairs for any reason, find someone or something to cblame,
2 dBecause the man who has someone to blame has no reason to question himself,
3 Or his own actions,
4 Or his own merits,
5 Or any other part of himself that might accidentally trigger thought.
6 Be fearless about the assignment of blame,
7 eBe certain in pointing the finger at others,
8 And be sure to choose the ftargets for your blame in accordance with your desires,
9 And not by any other means,
10 Because other means may lead to thought,
11 And thought is the enemy of hapiness.
CHAPTER 351 Remember never to be lured into thought.
2 gDo not allow yourself to be intigued by new ideas,
3 Because new ideas lead to thought.
||4 Do not allow others to debate the causes and effects of your actions with you,
5 Because logic leads to thought.
6 hDo not seek to find or make connections between the things that you do and the well-being of other people,
7 Because this is a perilous trap,
8 And leads to thought.
CHAPTER 361 Do not be too fond of language,
2 Or words,
3 Or their meanings,
4 Because too much attention to language leads to thought.
5 iInstead, seek to reduce your vocabulary as much as possible,
6 jAnd use profanity and obscenities in place of truly descriptive words,
7 Because a truly telling description can lead to thought.
CHAPTER 371 kNever be tempted to see the other person's point of view,
2 Because they have different desires,
3 Different certainties,
4 And different targets for blame.
5 Consideration of another's perspective,
6 Even for a moment,
7 Can lead to thought.
CHAPTER 381 lDo not be tempted to increase your store of knowledge,
2 Because new knowledge can contradict old knowledge,
