Party

READ MORE

“I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.”

People probably think I can’t handle anything. The opposite case is more true.

There are interesting people that I wouldn’t mind getting to know more. The thing is everyone is so different from me. It’s like a party. You see a nice person, you go up and talk to them. But eventually it’s nothing new. Same old stuff, I don’t see what’s so exciting. There’s a billion people.

What can be learned or taken from it?

You

READ MORE

“Anything you can do, I can do better!
I can do anything better than you!”

“Anything you can be, I can be greater!
Sooner or later I’m greater than you!”

Don’t you contextualize. It must remain generalized.
Don’t you put any limit. It is undefined.
Don’t you fear. You.

“With a word, I end you.”

I won’t be held back by you.

Fool

READ MORE

“In war as in life, it is often necessary when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.”

It’s difficult to not lose respect for people when they try their hardest to convince me that they are a fool. Later on, I might find the hope to recreate some level of respect. But there comes a point in time where they leave me no other option than to consider them as a fool.

There are many characteristics of fools. The most annoying one to me is that their lack of understanding leads them to give up whatever else they thought they understood. In other words, they will abandon logic and reason as long as it makes them feel better. Whatever that may be, it’s all fool..ish.

The burden this places on me is that I don’t understand why they do this. Yes, I feel frustration as well, but to follow along in their blinded path to destruction would convert me to a fool as well. Is it that they are unable to control their emotions? Did they crack under pressure and stress? Is it simply a weak mind and will?

And there seems to be a theme. The greatest insult to injury they add to me is when they laud their paragon of truth: the universe has no purpose and everything is meaningless so nothing ultimately matters.

“Why even try? Why not give up? Join us in our hopeless misery.”

Because I don’t want to act like a fool. Whether I am one or not is not for me to judge.

Road Trip

READ MORE

People often think that they are in the driver’s seat. And maybe literally, they are.

“They have overstepped.”

But they had better tread more carefully. I won’t hesitate to trip them if they go too far. It really doesn’t cost much change.

“When you have to kill a man, it costs nothing to be polite.”

My toll booth has no signs. Yet there is a heavy price to pay if you cross the line.

Stick to the map.

Sincerely

READ MORE

Don’t be fake. Be real. What would that look like? What would that mean?

It’s a formal expression. Yours truly. Nothing more or else.

Sincerely. That’s all.

Belief

READ MORE

“Believe in our future.”

You can say “I do not believe”. You can say “I do believe”. The acceptance of truth is not what makes it true.

“You dare oppose me?”

There is no relief from my belief. You will not be able to lie to it. You will not be able to steal from it.

“You need not follow, but you must witness.”

Vortex

READ MORE

“None Of Us Are As Strong As All Of Us”

It’s strongest at the center. Is one vortex stronger than many?

T / F

READ MORE

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”

Today I took a test. For the true/false questions, I just started picking answers. One false, two trues. Not really thinking too much about it. Because after all, it’s either one or the other. Later in the day during class I heard something that got me thinking. For context, it’s a math class. We were discussing a solution to a problem. There was an expression: 0 = 0.

“We ignore this because it’s a truth.”

In that moment, there was a bit of irony and also truth. It’s understood that 0 = 0. It isn’t going to help us solve the problem. But..

If truth is regarded as something to be ignored because it doesn’t really affect the situation.. and what we’re really looking for is to clarify the solution to the problem..
Isn’t that a paradox? Are we not searching for the truth? And yet the truth we search for does not affect the problem, our answer is still simply true or false? Right or wrong?

The scary part is that no matter what the case is, there’s still nothing that can be done about it. True or False?

Mirage

READ MORE

“We will unearth what has been lost.”

In the open road there is a phenomenon where you don’t see the road, you see shiny water glimmering. As you drive closer the water dissipates and the road forms beneath. Before you know it, you’re driving over that piece of earth without a second thought.

In the open waters there is a phenomenon where you don’t see any roads, you see shiny water glimmering. As you drive, the waters form beneath. Before you know it, you’re driving over that piece of water without a second thought. But you know the reality: deep underneath the earth is there. Or is it not a mirage?

Why does the earth not appear? How do I find my way back down to Earth?

Knot

READ MORE

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”

Every tree has its knots. That’s a sign of its growth. If my knot is being stubborn, how am I most easily cracked?

Is it even possible for me to give up? Can my knot become not a knot? Basically, can I cannot?

Can I knot? I can knot. Crack or bend?

I cannot understand.
