|Charlie and Chuck in "Happier" times|
Chuck Lorre, creator and executive producer of Two and a Half Men, posted a 'vanity card' after last night's episode of 'Mike & Molly', one of the other shows he produces, that answered his thoughts on the recent Charlie Sheen debacle and the possible future of 'Two and a Half Men'.
On the card Lorre says, "I understand that I'm under a lot of pressure to respond to certain statements made about me recently. The following are my uncensored thoughts. I hope this will put an end to any further speculation." He continues, "I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individuation, the false feeling of being separate. In other words, I am aware, ergo I am alone. I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness. This explains the paradox of our culture, which celebrates the ego while simultaneously promoting its evisceration with drugs and alcohol."
He goes on, "It also clarifies our deep-seated fear of monolithic, one-minded systems like communism, religious fundamentalism, zombies and invaders from Mars. Each one is a dark echo of an oceanic state of unifying transcendence from which consciousness must, by nature, flee. The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace. Or perhaps more accurately, "Screw Grace, I am so outta here!
It looks like Lorre is done with the show and could possible be calling it quits. Lorre's vanity cards came to light a few weeks ago when he finally broke his silence regarding the trouble caused by Sheen being in the news. The card talked about how Lorre lead a healthy lifestyle and finally said, "If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed."
