Perhaps one of the most interesting types of trolls is what shall be referred to here as "Abstract". They are known to produce long, stream of conscious rants that frequently appear to devolve into utter nonsense. Close inspection of 42 unique Abstract trolls, however, revealed a stunning degree of complexity and duplicitous meaning hidden within the words, calling to mind Dadaist works by Joyce and Lucas. One particularly lengthy rant was actually a fairly insightful deconstruction of Hasidic numerology as compared to Pagan cabalistic works.


maybe I lack the background to interpret some posts, wanderer can you help?

I think they are referring to Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dissembler. In chapter one of that particular meditation, there is a discussion of a little "moo cow". That reminds me of some of the childish little over sensitivities and word games we have seen from certain posters. In addition, it's 'stream of consiousness' flavor is highly reminiscent of some of the 2,000 word replies to queries like, "So, what is the SWR today?"

That's my take.

perhaps what they are saying is that "even if the future is identical to the past the result will be different in the future"?

It certainly is pleasant watching someone who has given so little value destroy what I spent 1,800 posts helping to create.
