Welcome to another profile page! You've made it this far. Congratulations. You've earned some trivial information.
I am just youngish person who enjoys writing for fun, and as a way to relax between more mentally taxing work. Currently its just poetry, but I am working on longer works, albeit slowly. As for less obvious points of interest, I love coffee, critical/deep thinking, reading, podcast, and music (favorite band: VNV Nation), and spend just about every waking second enjoying one or more of these things.
Thanks for your time if you read any of my work, and please, leave reviews. Criticism, interpretations, support, rants on your current infestation of interdimensional space squirrels*; its all good to me.
if you do happen to be suffering from an infestation of interdimensional space squirrels, I would highly recommend an interdimensional exterminator, or at the very least an interdimensional hawk.
From here it is only some of my personal philosophical thoughts
In all languages there are words that are interchangeable. But we must remember that there are some that are not. "illogical" does not mean the same thing as "false," "Logical" is not the same as "true," and "improbable" simply does not mean "impossible."
The goal of mindfulness is to be aware of the contents of one's thoughts, but to do this, one must first be able to identify a thought. When we do this, there is something about thoughts that becomes evident. This is that thoughts are just that. They are not physical, they are not made of matter, they can not have any impact on current reality. It is only when we give them the matter that we control, be it the air we breath, the words we wright, the hands we use tools with, or the brains we create with, that they persist. Now that we know this we can be mindful. Doing this we find that some thoughts contain good intent, and others, bad. So, just as it makes no reasonable sense to hand a man who says he wants to kill you a gun; so to does it make no reasonable sense to give thoughts containing bad intention our ability to create. And keep in mind that we can create thoughts. If you need proof, just try to read this sentence without knowing the alphabet.
There is a common misconception amongst people that "mind is over matter." This is not true. The fact is that "mind is matter," and as we all know; "matter can never be created or destroyed, only changed."
"If we judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its entire life thinking it is stupid."
Now just think for a second here. It is true that the fish will think itself stupid because we think it is thinking that, but lets be honest with ourselves. The fish has no concept of what "stupid" is, and will only ever be a fish, with the thoughts of a fish. The only real idiot is the person judging the worth of a fish by its inability to do something that it does not have the physical anatomical structures to do. Thus I suppose a rewright.
"If we judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, we will spend our entire lives forgetting that we can."
"If we judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, than it is possible that there will be a fish wondering why those things judging its ability to climb a tree don't just do it themselves."
