Yes, the Tree Still Fell in the Forest

It never ceases to amaze me how solipsistic the common person is. It is a sickness of the mind that believes that if a tree falls in the forest, but no person is there to perceive it, then it did not really happen. It is a sickness of the mind that believes the only position available in the end is subjectivity. No more of this nonsense! Where is your courage?! Where is your admittance of your own insignificance?!

Understanding the Reality of Truth and Knowledge

Many people equate truth with belief, or truth with knowledge but they do not understand how truth is created in their own minds, and in the minds of the people around them. It is very important that people understand the actual difference between truth and knowledge, because, at whatever level they reside as far as understanding the actuality of that difference, that is the amount of slop and unnecessary relativity they allow in their own lives which can lead to rampant opportunism, delusion, or on the positive side, coincidental truth.

Why I Decided Being Cool Was Really Not Cool

It seemed like, when I was young, being cool was everything. In high school in America, acceptance is everything. I am sure that is the same in any school situation around the world. School is a proving ground where one grows, and is exposed for what they are in an intellectual hierarchy. School is a very brutal battleground where suicides are created, and lives are scarred and maimed.

Meditations #5

Though this be true, I must nevertheless here consider that I am a man, and that, consequently, I am in the habit of sleeping, and representing to myself in dreams those same things, or even sometimes others less probable, which the insane think are presented to them in their waking moments. How often have I dreamt that I was in these familiar circumstances, that I was dressed, and occupied this place by the fire, when I was lying undressed in bed?

To Kill for Universality

Those who have the capacity to wonder, in a sense of curiosity that allows them to use their mind in the way it evolved, will at some point wander across the intellectual quandary which is the ebb and flow of the universal battle between division and communion; intolerance and tolerance. The choices you make in building the character that you live your life by defines what you consider “tolerance” to be, and what you consider “intolerance” to be. The choices you make also define how you will apply these definitions in the social interactions you experience in your daily lives.

Meditations #4

But it may be said, perhaps, that, although the senses occasionally mislead us respecting minute objects, and such as are so far removed from us as to be beyond the reach of close observation, there are yet many other of their informations (presentations), of the truth of which it is manifestly impossible to doubt; as for example, that I am in this place, seated by the fire, clothed in a winter dressing gown, that I hold in my hands this piece of paper, with other intimations of the same nature.

Militant Optimism is not a "Good" Idea

Seriously, I do not know how many times, and how many ways I will write and rewrite this essay to try to make the point clear. Somebody has to pay for you to be optimistic. People just do not understand the indirect consequences of their actions. As long as their optimism seems to keep them happy, that is as far as they see. They cannot understand when this optimism gathers in group-think to support the sacred gem, it demands indirectly a hardcore exclusion.

My Personal Motives and Development

There is many dimensions to these essays I am writing. There are a string of essays that must necessarily be written, and they are essays articulating my motives. Naturally I have been focused on what men "ought" to do, and actually I am articulating my own crystalline structure simultaneously. When I speak about the "ought" for men, I am speaking about myself also, as power is not above the law. What is it that I hope to achieve? And finally, realistically, what is it that I think will happen?
