Re: sing-song Orthodox liturgy

Lizard King took me to a Russian* Orthodox divine liturgy. Orthodox is a meme on the Alt-Right, but I wouldn’t guess a lot of people are actually doing it. That said, a lot of middle class conservative Protestants are looking for somewhere to flee from liberal Protestantism (i.e. Gnosticism as in Niebuhr).

The entire thing was conducted in a sing-song chanting voice, which was interesting because a different part of the brain is used for singing than speaking.

My symptoms were that I had suddenly lost my ability to speak to human beings, even though I could speak normally while alone or when talking to my cat.

[…]

It was a confounding, maddening problem. I could sing fluently, albeit hideously, which was entirely normal for me. And I could recite memorized pieces without much of a hitch. But I couldn’t produce a normal, intelligible sentence in the context of a conversation.

In Metal Gear Solid, they have nanomachines that prevent people from saying “the Patriots” so those people get around it by referring to the Patriots using the sing-song phrase “La le lu le lo”.
