I have taken to contemplating religious symbolism. Some of it has a point. In particular, the Lotus.
Consider the Lotus. The Lotus is a beautiful flower that floats on swamp water. When the swamp water rises, the Lotus rises with it. When the swamp water goes down, the Lotus floats down with it.
When a presidential candidate comes along and says that he will drain the swamp -- the Lotus knows that he is a lying bag of shit.
The Lotus is a good role model for modern life.
