Default Just some thoughts...

Written in a drunken stupor, this is my personal spin on philosophy...

Given enough time to escape, Id say that any man would live his dreams in a life of wallow and self pity. Should anything be more significant yet so inconsequential as opinion? Yet, these things drive us forward. What we think we know is nothing more than a mirage, a faint wisp as the wind passes by. So are our lives, a faint wisp, at best. There is something out there, something which we are incapable of comprehending. Yet, this is the answer to our salvation. Should we be so arrogant to not consider?

One can realize ones own dreams. This brings satisfaction, but only on a level of superficial contentment. However, to have dreams but never realize them achieves not only dissatisfaction, but also empathy, as empathetic feelings lie deep within the consciousness. Others feel it towards those who pretend to have noble intentions, but never achieve them. The same as noble intentions rarely achieve anything but a brief acknowledgment. The world is never really changed.

But does it matter? Does it hold in any high regard what accomplishments better the state of humanity? Humanity is nothing more than a blip in the scale of the cosmos, less, actually. Civilizations last no longer than the flutter of the heart in the measurement of what is the reality of time. So, what is so important about our accomplishments? When it comes down to it, by the time we are discovered, our specie will be beyond recognition compared to what we know today. And so it is pointless. Yet, it is of utmost importance to improve the current state of our affairs, as our affairs last longer than the lifetime of any one person. These accomplishments will shape what is discovered in the future by the unknown specie.

And so, it is both pointless and of utter importance to accomplish the betterment of our condition, as we condition ourselves to believe that which we do not know. Should our future not be decided by what we do today, this would be of no consequence. However, since our future specie is to be decided by what improvements and deterioration we allow today, it is of great value what should be gained by our current effort.

We are nothing alone, but together we are the building bricks of the world. Also this is kind of related:

The Total Perspective Vortex derives its picture of the whole Universe on the principle of extrapolated matter analyses.
To explain — since every piece of matter in the Universe is in some way affected by every other piece of matter in the Universe, it is in theory possible to extrapolate the whole of creation — every sun, every planet, their orbits, their composition and their economic and social history from, say, one small piece of fairy cake.
The man who invented the Total Perspective Vortex did so basically in order to annoy his wife.
Trin Tragula — for that was his name — was a dreamer, a thinker, a speculative philosopher or, as his wife would have it, an idiot.
And she would nag him incessantly about the utterly inordinate amount of time he spent staring out into space, or mulling over the mechanics of safety pins, or doing spectrographic analyses of pieces of fairy cake.
"Have some sense of proportion!" she would say, sometimes as often as thirty-eight times in a single day.
And so he built the Total Perspective Vortex — just to show her.
And into one end he plugged the whole of reality as extrapolated from a piece of fairy cake, and into the other end he plugged his wife: so that when he turned it on she saw in one instant the whole infinity of creation and herself in relation to it.
To Trin Tragula's horror, the shock completely annihilated her brain; but to his satisfaction he realized that he had proved conclusively that if life is going to exist in a Universe of this size, then the one thing it cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion.

It matters as much as any person cares about it, simply because there is no implicit meaning in life other than to make your own. That is why people are free to live as they choose. The universe is almost incomprehensibly large, and humans are an infinitely small part of it, but that is neither positive nor a negative thing.

Also, Total Perspective Vortex FTW

Death is the ultimate form of romance, indeed, the only form from my perspective. It must be great to be able to love someone and loose that person. Whats more romantic than forever missing someone? Instead, most people simply move on. I wouldnt want to. I would rather give my entire heart to one person, rather than spreading it among a few or many. Nothing is more desirable than forever being sad, knowing that you once knew love in its truest form, indeed, its only form if its even real.

Instead, I spend my life missing someone Ive never met, loving someone whos existence I am unaware of. Part of me envies those who can love the people they know. Then again, it seems pointless, so it really doesnt bother me, inconvenience does, however. I think my idea of romance is so skewed, or at least unrealistic, that nothing can live up to my standards. Death is absolute, the purest form of peace. I envy those who experience it. I want so badly to miss someone, but to do that I must first be able to love, unable.

Its curious how even bad people become good when they pass away. Even those who achieved nothing suddenly had such great potential. Why do you forget their faults? How do you long for someone? I experience longing, but not for anyone with whom I am acquainted. Instead, I long for an idea of someone. Perhaps, my imagination is the only thing I can love. For only in my thoughts is someone perfect. Only in nonexistence can pure existence be achieved, compatibility is realistic.

Why would you willingly pursue inconvenience? What causes more inconvenience than other people? It is illogical. Then again, people have the capacity of causing convenience, logical. However, in order for this to happen, we must forget ourselves and show kindness to those with whom we contact. This does not happen often.

Is there anything more interesting than simply observing others, and yourself? I view myself as an outsider, even to myself. I am in this world but not part of it, a stranger to my own existence, if I even do exist. Go ahead and fall in love. I can only observe. I can only long for the beginning of peace and end of inconvenience. I can only long for the death of someone I dont love but want to.

I think everyone wants to love. When you know when it happens though, is another thing entirely...

People forget someone's faults and problems because they want to remember them for who they are, which, for most people, does mean they want to think of them positively. sometimes people regret chances they never took while that person was there.

Everyone dies in the end, it's just entropy, but it is why it is important to be happy in life while you can still remember it.

But their faults are part of who they are. If someone chose to be, or just was, a bad person, why should they be thought of otherwise? There is some good in everyone, and that should be remembered as well. But let's not deceive ourselves in remembering who someone was. If you only remember part of them, then you are doing a disservice to who that person chose to be. That's the way I see it, anyway.

I don't know what happiness is. I can't say I've ever experienced it. But I do enjoy the little things that make my life a little more comfortable.

And thats the thing we should do, enjoy the little piece which gives us entertainment - But does it really matter if someone is good or bad? In the end its only words created by humans.

Perhaps is something out there which would change the meaning of good - bad to the different side?

We all shift constantly between these 2 sides, so we are at the same time Super Villain and Superhero

But to say the truth, i for my part find the dark side much more entertaining, if you follow too much the restrictions of order you end as little wheel in the machine.

Huh, that's a really good point. It might help if I define what I mean by "good" and "bad". I view a "good" person as someone who is generally kind and courteous to other people. I view a "bad" person as someone who is mean to other people without any perceivable reason(although, there are, at times, good reasons). I just find it more logical to be kind to people as it usually helps avoid inconveniences, which I find logical to avoid. But as you point out, does it matter? After all, it's all words. If there is a logical reason for someone doing something or acting a certain way in which people consider "bad", then I generally don't view that person as bad since I understand the 'why' behind their actions. Then again, this is just the way I view things at the moment and is subject to change.

I am sorry, but that does change also nothing really - In the end we create our own reality, our own society - own heaven and hell.

So we are both Gods and Devils the Same time. i would never say that what we believe what is healthy or not healthy is the universal truth of everything. Beyond our small version of the cosmos we see - we are blind, who knows whats out there.

Btw. then the universe itself would also be considered as mean. Let us see the truth - Its a dark and sinister place where chaos is King. So many stars are killed in the past and also for sure future. Perhaps the universal truth is that the whole plane on which we exist is a true hell of destruction and doom.

And only small humanity tries to fight against these dark, black instinct which leads us possibly to self destruction. Seen from this point, why should we deny what we are, what we see every Day and stand against it?

On the other side, humanity likes partly to rebel - so why not fighting against that what we consider evil

I know That's just the way I view things at the moment. I'm not saying I'm right. Everyone is allowed to, and should, come to their own conclusion, and I respect yours

Nothing beats a bit evil fatalism - It brightens your day and you can laugh endlessly about the dumb joke called Universe
