Happy Christmas and Other Diabolical Disasters

Happy month of politically-correct-holidays-even-though-we-all-know-it’s-Christmas to you fellow bloggers!

The chill is in the air and everyone is getting in the spirit for the END OF THE WORLD!

Now my hope is that most of you know this is all poppycock and we can have a good laugh at the end of today, but on the off chance that it is the actual end of the world kudos to all the paranoid for being right for once and ill see you in some universal afterlife of a sort.

Anyways

It took a while to realize the fact that today was the big day. I found it pretty convenient that it happens to be on a Friday (those Mayans are pretty cool guys) and also the day my family goes off to see a holiday dinner show. So if the world ends, at least we’ll be full and entertained.

I’ve been in a good mood after my Lord of the Rings marathon and felt it was necessary to share the feeling with all my fellow bloggers!

This season, remember it is a time for happiness. I wish you all a great Christmas Day or a happy Chanukah (I always favored this spelling because of how you can pronounce it like cha-nu-ka!) or possibly Kwanza if that’s how you roll.

The reason I love this season so much is because of all the seasons in the world, the Christmas season is one that rarely ever changes. You have the stores showing Christmas decoration in early October, the crazy Black Friday, but what really defines the season is the music. God I love Christmas music, and not only Cus it’s just awesome, but because it grows up with you. This music is the music that I sang when I was 6 and will continue to sing when I’m 86! It’s this time of the year where the feeling is always the same and the air is strong with the smell of Christmas cheer.

Then there’s the movies: we have the classics like Chrismas Story, and The Grinch, and the favorites like Elf and Polar Express. This Christmas will bring the same cheer as the one before and the next Christmas will do the same.

So what I try and say is that no matter what’s happening in your life always try to keep a lil Christmas in your heart!

Happy End of the World to all!!!!

The Absolutely True Story of a Random Person

My legend began in the 12th century! Or rather it began in 1992. But that part isn’t interesting.

Basically I barfed and stuff and one time I shat and it wasn’t in a toilet. Cool story.

Anyways

Lets fast forward to a time where I didn’t barf and shit hit the fan instead of the toilet.

My freshmen year.

It was my first time I’d be on my own in college (que fireworks of awesome). I was 17 and I was on my way towards eternal glory!!!

Or so it seemed.

Halfway through the semester I literally stopped giving a damn. So no surprise I failed the semester.

Shit

Now I was out of college with no support what could I do. Fortunately I still had financial aide. And with that I was able to attend community college for a year. I even got a job.

But then I failed again.

For most this would be the end of the story. No one can recover from this.

If it wasn’t for my mums stubborn faith in me it would be.

But I got a second chance. And here I am now at the end of the semester with my life back on track. Maybe it was for the better that I went through what I went through but there’s still a long adventure ahead of me.

Another existential truth

The question is known by all.

Why are we here?

It is a question that spans the whole of human history and it will continue to do so until the very last day for mankind.

In my lifetime however, upon much thought, I came to an answer that is simple yet complex. It provokes the furtherance of my existence and essentially provides the importance of why I’m here.

I call it self-existence.

When I come upon the question this is how I answer.

There is no meaning to life in the span of the whole universe. We exist to exist. There is no ultimate goal of the human race other than to exist and do something with our existence.

When one breaks away from the responsibility of having a universal importance, the question of our existence is answered.

We exist to create purpose of the world around us.

Our existence has no affect on the whole universe, but it does have an effect on the immediate surroundings.

We live on earth and because we do, we directly affect the happenings of this planet.

What goes on in this planet truly is dependent on what we and every other living organism on this planet decide to do.

In this sense we create importance essentially out of thin air.

And that’s pretty awesome.

Falling prey to the unavoidable cliche, life is a video game and we are the players.

To us, life has importance and our actions directly affect the universe we are immersed in.

But to the outside world not involved in the video game, there is nothing actually happening due to our actions.

So no, we don’t have an ultimate purpose of existence, but we exist in order to promote the continuation of life.

That is my answer

The essence of being

What makes us human?

Is it the distinction of being the only creature in this world capable of forming it to our will?

No.

Is it the formation of morals and ethics?

No.

I see human and truly the ultimate goal of ‘being’ as the moment when a species looks upon the world and first conceives the thought of life and mortality.

Consider a squirrel, does it live or does it survive? A squirrel does not ponder the world around it, instead, it seeks food because it draws upon instinct to do so. The squirrel does not ponder its own mortality, it just knows that a creature coming after it is a bad thing and it must defend itself from whatever the bad thing is.

We became human when we developed the thought:

‘I need food to live’

In the world that ancient homo sapiens lived in, the conditions faced were not ideal for a human, yet we stayed where we pleased. We neglected the instincts that animals followed, and we followed our own pursuits. We adapted and hunted, becoming predators. Unlike predators, we were not shackled to one area and thus allowed us to explore and spread out. Something no other animal could do without the process of evolution and random chance.

Humans existed in the cold of the arctic, and human existed in the dryness of the desert.

Humans existed through the harsh winters and the blazing summers.

We did not respond to what the world did, we endured as the world changed around us.

That will always be true for us.

Today we live in a world of luxury compared to what the most basic life is like. The separation from creature to being is now a chasm spanning an immeasurable distance.

We are human because we die and live, not because we survive.

That is the true essence of ‘being’.

A Personal Opinion on Life II

Previously, i spoke about the truths of the universe.

Now lets talk about society.

In two words i can describe the whole american culture:

F**ked up.

I see the world like this because of many things, mainly of the rise of the ignorant, the spoiled, and the apethetic. All this reflects itself in music, politics, and culture in general. My own generation disgusts me with how shalow most are, and on top of that these are the people that our parents generation is entrusting with the future.

It’s truely terrifying.

Even in college, where peole come for an education in something professional, I see people care more about the best way to get drug and where the parties are, but it’s okay because most get weeded out after freshmen year. Even that doesn’t help our generation, if anything, it just creates a larger lower class.

I feel sad for the ignorant, but i don’t pity those that put themselves in their situation.

Another thing I am dissappointed with is the mediocrity of politics and how it’s become a high school popularity contest, but in the end, no one wins. Our government is more interested in proving which animal is better, the ass or the huge ass with a trunk. And speaking of elephants and donkeys, politics can really be related to a circus.

Anyways

With a divided government that shows little care for actually improving the state of the nation. Our hope lis within the few educated individuals that can make it through one of the hardest economies since the Great Depression and the worst employment regression for young adults.

All in all, we are in a crummy place in time, but through perserverence maybe there is hope.

Hope in spite of horrible conditions

That’s how i see the world

A Personal Opinion on Life

As the first post in the adequately titled “life stuff” category, it seems fitting to make a post about life in general. A note to readers that this isn’t a ‘Meaning to Life’ kinda thing, just a ‘I breathe therefore I blog about it’ kinda thing.

Anyways

So I’ll start off with what I’ve essentially formed as the Ultimate Truths of the Universe, and then explain the stuff kinda came runner-up.

The Truths whittle down to 2 undeniable facts:

1. I think

2. I exist in someway

As such everything else is relative and is susceptible to the perception of the senses. The reason why the first truth is ‘I think’ is essentially because the one true thing that I have full power of is my thoughts, they are not physically real and cannot be manipulated in anyway by outer forces. All in all, the one thing that I know of the universe around me is that even if everything else around me just up and disappeared, my thoughts and my ability to think would still still exist.

This brings me to Truth 2, existence. I’ve come to figure that in some way I must exist. For if I think I must be within a place where a thought can occur, if i didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have the power to think because I must be existent in order to be able to think.

This brings the question then: if you don’t think then would that mean you don’t exist? My answer to that is I don’t know.

In the current state that I exist, I think. Since I do not live in any other state I cannot make a truth about a different state than that of which I am.

Now onwards to the relative stuff. Let’ start basic: breathing. I do it to ‘live’ but the real question is do I need to breathe to think? And the answer is no. Note that thinking and the existence of a brain are two different things. I think and what the reality I ‘live’ in tells me that I use the brain to think. But I cannot confirm that. So again the brain is relative.

Back to breathing. As I said, I don’t need breathing to think. But in this reality breathing allows the brain to function thus allowing the brain to produce thought. Since, as stated above, I cannot confirm the existence of the brain, I cannot confirm that breathing directly births the ability to think. So no breathing is relative.

Now here’s the fun part. A complexity that really challenges the truths.

Drugs.

No, I don’t do drugs, but it’s what they do that makes things complex: they change how we think and perceive the world around us. It’s not this affect that worries me though.

Because those affected by drugs don’t alter others universal perception. This brings up an interesting question.

Is the structure of the universe around us supported by the collective belief of those around me or is the universe based on my perception?

The one way I could personally prove this would be to try drugs and see what happens. I don’t believe I will, but there might be another way.

Bring someone who has yet to see the world, has yet to interpret any information. Into a room made in complete darkness by people who had no knowledge about the room location and what it looked like. Provide a way of nourishing this being somehow and then after a certain period of time. Possibly over a course of a couple years. And then have someone enter the room.

There’s two possibilities I can imagine. One is complete blackness and the other is something else. Of course this is a basic explanation of the proposal, there’s still so much variables that need addressed.

Anyways

This is life in my philosophical view. For the social view of the world take a look at the next post.
