Let me recount how someone's entire figure changed in my perception. No, unfortunately nothing exceptionally surreal happened, but I was thinking about trying to view customers in a less judgmental way when a customer was about take pictures of an art book in the store (it's not allowed). I let her know, and she quickly … Continue reading I watched someone shape-shift today, …
About the Author
It's been a while. Not since I philosophized, meditated, or theorized about a given topic, but since I made an effort to do anything more than shout my brain's content into the void. Last time I wrote on this site, I stated that I would only post when I felt that there were some practicality … Continue reading Reflections
The Turning Clock
I have noticed that one of the ever-present feelings I have is an intuitive notion of the time of day.

The anarchy is not innately a political ideology, but a metaphysical and existential philosophy with political and social implications. It describes the inescapable, ever effectual, natural state of human social systems.

I write on death to express some feelings about my life that I feel are atypical and unconventional, yet insightful. This ties into my philosophy of sanity and the compulsion to be "in" rather than "out", but I don’t explicitly mean to talk about mental states here. Just about my own, in fact.

Reminders of a Long Lost Life
"What makes life so worth living is that one day we lose it all. Stay close to your loved ones, and bundle up and be ready for the cold. Life is better with warmer hands to hold."
Having No Mind; a Reflection on Experience, Self, and Desire
And yet I have to thank the me that felt so restricted by my circumstances and ideas, because it's all brought me here to the point where I can look at life and sincerely say, "I think I'm enjoying this, and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next."
