Re: Thought of the Day

It was very still in there.

But to call it there is a misnomer. Because I was it.

The place perceived as there was inside my mind. I was not only there, I was the there.

In two places at once.

Both perfectly still.

Re: Thought of the Day

What if the current trend of self-absorbtion is the evolutionary mechanism towards opening up billions of minds from the stifling presence of groupthink? The explosion of new concepts would be phenomenal.

Re: Thought of the Day

In this current instance of an Event, it has appeared slowly and built gradually, in human terms. Whether this holds true for previous Events is difficult to determine - the seperation timeline of major Events often runs beyond the lifetime of the mind studying them. However, we find ourselves in t...

Re: Thought of the Day

The step before Cause and Effect . In the field of human affairs - which are a very different case to that of Natural affairs, which are resolute amd immovable in their simplicity - the question arises, given the evidence of cause and the result of effect within the human sphere, why are we this wa...

Re: Thought of the Day

It's only when you look into the future - by extrapolation - that you truly learn to cherish the moment. And to understand why . Sentience is the peak. It doesn't get any better than this . There is no evolutionary step open to us that is an improvement beyond sentience. Because with sentience, we c...

Re: Thought of the Day

There is a point at which it turns - from annoyance to ridiculousness . It's a fine line. The swing in emotional response is profound, though. The relief is enormous. The negative connotations of agitation and grievance turn to laughter and mirth, disbelief , even. The burden that seemed to be of ov...

Re: Thought of the Day

A brief note on self-belief , I believe. Believe in yourself . Isn't that the mantra? Believe in yourself and you can make your dreams come true . That's a good thing - right? That's a positive thing to think or say - right? Except there's a huge caveat - silently and implicitly added - at the end o...

Oh Crikey ! They are losing control. There doesn't appear to be a Plan B . So near, yet so far away. Just a little longer, please . A slo-mo trainwreck in real time. If they look away for a moment, when they look back again, it might be back to normal . But it isn't. Simply isn't . Playing for time...

Re: Thought of the Day

If you awoke one morning and knew, just knew that you might have the power within you to hypnotise the world - would you use that power?

Would you trust yourself?

Re: Thought of the Day

Loneliness is about to become all the rage . I mean, as if there wasn't enough of it already . But no, we need more . But wait - if it's happening across the board - there's always comfort in the knowledge that you're not going to be the only one experiencing it. It's a cold comfort - selfish, too -...

Re: The Jordan Peterson Thread

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZYQpge1W5s# Peterson strikes me as an individual that enjoys the fame, but despises it at the same time. He is also becoming increasingly beligerent. His fixed stare when addressing (that which he considers) lesser intellect has something maniacal about it. His ready...

They could steal it if they wished to, but it would hasten their demise were they to do so. But the temptation is great. Ocassionally - very ocassionally - an idea is born to those that least expect it. An exquisite gift, like a miracle child that appears from nowhere and captivates with it's devel...
