Ok maybe I'm just stupid, or too young to understand, but I've read your latest post many times over and I still can't seem to understand it. Perhaps you could simplify it for me?

'Stupid' is a concept . . . nobody is stupid!
'Not understanding' is part of the process of uncovering Be-ing. Maybe not understanding what I wrote is a good thing because it means you're engaged and you haven't stopped thinking/Be-ing.
Over the past 15 years I have read Being and Time
almost 74 times (I'm currently in the middle of the 74th time). Many times while reading I heard the 'stupid' dialog. I even heard my 'self' complaining "How many times do I have to read this damn book to get anything out of it?
At one point I just had to tell my 'self' that my quest has led to me sitting down and reading Being and Time
and I needed to trust my 'self' for Be-ing here and keep reading. I had to tell myself not to care if I 'understood'. There were times I noticed that I was coming to conclusions about what I was reading only to realize that I was wrong. I typed all 387 pages of the book on my computer and that got me more 'understanding' than all the reading I had done up to that point.
What you're finding out is that you can't force your own presuppositions and conclusions on Be-ing. You need to give your 'self' a break and trust the process of uncovering who you are.
Get a copy of Being and Time,
read it 74 times and then try to tell me you're stupid - LMFAO. BTW, in the middle of the 74th reading there are moments I feel stupid - it never goes away. If you never want to feel stupid again stop questing.
Being and Time
is not a book with a beginning and an end. It is a conversation you choose to engage in throughout the time you have on this planet. 'Understanding' (goodies) is a by-product of the conversation. Keep uncovering who you are, nobody will do it for you and most of them will invite you to lead your 'self' astray.
