Strange Consequences?

While browsing through YouTube, I chanced upon this video of OSHO, and it turned out to be one of the most enlightening messages by him. You should watch this video, if you haven’t already watched it. I have also put up the text message here for easy reading.

So here you go with the starting point of OSHO’s talk and the video ...

"When Friedrich Nietzsche declared “God is dead”, fuck became the most important word in English language".

The problem is if god is dead, then you lose the most important word in your language and you will need a substitute. And god was one end, one extreme. And when one extreme is disappear from your mental vision, the necessary and inevitable is you will fall to the other extreme. And that’s what has happened Milaripa … Instead of god, fuck has become the most important word in our language. Even if Friedrich Nietzsche comes back, he will be surprised, and he will try to resists, somehow the dead god is back because this is stupid. But you will need a whole report on it, a whole research.

One of the most interesting words in the English language today is the word 'fuck'. It is one magical word. Just by its sound it can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love. In language, it falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive (John fucked Mary) and intransitive (Mary was fucked by John), and as a noun (Mary is a fine fuck). It can be used as an objective (Mary is fucking beautiful).

As you can see there are not many words with the versatility of 'fuck'. Besides the sexual meaning, there are also the following uses:

Ignorance: Fucked if I know.
Trouble: I guess I am fucked now!
Fraud: I got fucked at the used car lot.
Aggression: Fuck you!
Displeasure: What the fuck is going on here?
Difficulty: I can't understand this fucking job.
Incompetence: He is a fuck off.
Suspicion: What the fuck are you doing?
Enjoyment: I had a fucking good time.
Request: Get the fuck out of here.
Hostility: I am going to knock your fucking head off!
Greeting: How the fuck are you?
Apathy: Who gives a fuck?
Innovation: Get a bigger fucking hammer.
Surprise: Fuck! You scared the shit out of me.
Anxiety: Today is really fucked. And it is very healthy too.

If every morning you do it as a transcendental meditation - just when you get up, the first thing, repeat the mantra "fuck you!" five times, it clears the throat too.

P.S: I have composed the text message after watching the video, but I am afraid you may find some discrepancies with that of the actual video. For more videos of OSHO's talks click here.

Yes, I have read about it a year back I think, but not seen the video.

Once again, your song "gulon mein" is just beautiful. I am going to listen to it for sometime. I see you use quite often. :-)

Hey hi, yes the VDO is interesting.
Thanks. News is I have done Dust Unsettled's tag on slow-melodious songs do visit.

Beta "fuck" would never be intransitive in this animal life of ours unless we turn into earthworms. It can be Active (Voice) as in "He fucked her" or Passive Voice "She was fucked by him". Transitive it would always remain, as, if someone 'fucks', that action wd have to pass on to someone, thing or other ;) Fuck can never be intransitive like "sleep" or "laugh" which one can do by oneself and there is no need for an object -
Thanks had a lot of fun with this...dont forget to visit me once in a whileeeeeeeeeeeeee
