Humor—both in the sense of laughing at a joke, and of “good humor”—is a characteristic texture of the complete stance.

Humor closely connects with:

  • Ambiguity
  • Paradox
  • Absurdity
  • Surprise
  • A sudden recognition that a situation can be seen differently
  • Noticing cognitive errors
  • Not taking adversity personally

All these come with the recognition of the inseparability of pattern and nebulosity, which is the definition of the complete stance.
