Practice: Doing Things for The Sake of Doing Them by Mossling on September 8th, 2009, 3:25 am
What is a human being designed to do as an animal?

Bees have wings, can fit inside flowers, and some even have pollen sacks on their legs - it seems pretty obvious what their vocation as bees is. It doesn't seem like a bee, or any other animal for that matter, is ever concerned about what activities will ultimately make it happy by satisfying it's existential reason. It just goes about being a bee.

It seems asking the question "What should I be doing?" is part of being human - it's our way of collecting pollen, so to speak. However; no doubt there will have been selective pressures which would have caused Homo sapiens to evolve in to the animal it is today. Were we so lost from the time we mutated in to our present form? I can't imagine so.

Just because we can ask questions, should we constantly ask them?

What if the question we constantly ask is "I wonder what it would be like to not ask questions all the time?"... and so we never find...

down in front! focus! Focus! hai@shift1exclaimation point! podiums are not tables they are pedastools for a centerpiece which does not sit... rest... remain inert... a shield and a sword... for the object of intangibility... namely ... expression... of voice.... of speech... of dialect... and oration... its a funny table that people joke with... never give a speech at a podium with a ledge its counterproductive...
let the weight of the pencil draw the speech back toward the down and in of the speaker... warp the world around the object of invention... *insert the perfect explaination for reality here* i mean its really all about the hush of ancient wisdom discovered by the ancient as themselves... i think therefor i am... i know that i know nothing and it doesn't bother me at all that we live in a make believe... or maybe it does a little...
don't shoot the messenger... the future of intellegence is now just like now was then it IS then and all hell and infinity plus are then...

Fear of success... by Mossling on July 5th, 2009, 8:21 am
A cumbersome leaf-munching caterpillar could fear becoming a butterfly because a butterfly, although it flies, is more visible to predators. A caterpillar has no conception of what it is like to fly freely through the air and taste the sweet nectar of flowers, and so he is only restricted to what he can see - butterflies flapping around drawing attention to themselves.

If the caterpillar embraces what is natural for it to become, then it will get the chance to move faster and be rewarded with sweet nectar. If it doesn't embrace what is natural for it to become, it will die prematurely without never having developed according to it's true nature.

I have been growing tiresome of avoiding being successful in a number of areas in my life. Fear of success seems to be a big driving force behind most people's self-imposed prisons and depressions - success often means change, and puts one in a more noticeable and envied position. The masses often seem to like nothing more than a bit of schadenfreude...

Railways and "The End Of History". by airth10 on April 24th, 2014, 7:39 am
I was rolling a model railway car over the cover of Francis Fukuyama's book "The End Of History". I wondered what it meant, if anything. I had just repaired the car and was running it on the book's cover to see if it was working smoothly.

It may sound mischievous of me thinking that a model railway car and The End Of History could have something in common. It sounds absurd. But as I stared at them both, wondering what possible connection they might have, it came to me that it had to do with an order, a railway order and a world order. Looking at the railway car I began thinking of all the railways in the world. And I thought, without railway systems and the networks they established throughout the world there would be no end of history as Fukuyama postulated. What he postulated is that humankind has arrived at a final world order in human governance. And as I see it, that final world order could not have come without the initial order railways brought to the world, which was...
