Am I a Hippocrate?

Dear Bel,

Am I a Hippocrate?


Dear Larry,

The degree of hypocrisy one possesses is equal to the absolute value of the difference between their beliefs and actions. Of course, it is not possible to actually measure these variables, but it sounds neat doesn’t it?

It is my theory that humans have a natural tendency to keep their hypocrisy at zero. Therefore, they have a desire to keep their beliefs and actions equal.

If Beliefs = Actions, then Hypocrisy = Zero
If Beleifs = X, Actions = X, then X – X = 0 = Hypocrisy

Furthermore, I believe that when hypocrisy equals anything other than zero, an anxiety will exist inside the individual. Why is this? It is due to one’s honesty and objectivity when evaluating their initial internal feeling following a hypocritical imbalance. Everyone wants their hypocrisy to equal zero because it encourages things like demon possession. Some do it by changing their beliefs so that they are equal to their actions. But YOU emailed me asking if you are a hippocrate instead of simply changing your beliefs so yes Larry, you are a hippocrate and the demons will be looking for you.

Hope this helps,
