I repainted my BC Rich Beast.
Yes, it is supposed to be comical and exaggerated.
Yes, I am proud of it.
Hello. I live in Nevada City, California. Yes, California. My town had it's name before the State of Nevada existed, so there. The shape of my county is even a rifle, pointed at Nevada.
Furthermore, borders and geographical names are simply figments of our collective imagination. Can you show me the equator on the surface of the Earth?
We are all residents of Earth, and we are her guardians. We are Earth's Sententials. (and we're doing a piss-poor job thus far)
Anyway, I am a musician, philosopher, and student of logic. I thoroughly enjoy art of all genres, science, meditation, t'ai chi, and anything else which could be deemed 'philosophy'.
I consider myself an autodidact. If you don't know what that means, look it up
"Keine sind so hoffnungslos versklavt wie die, wer falsch glauben, dass sie frei sind."
"None are so hopelessly enslaved as they who falsely believe that they are free." -Geothe
List of stuff to constantly question:
Question the Media.
Question the Government.
Question the deals at WalMart.
Question the Answers you're told not to question.
Question your way of life.
Question your philosophy.
Question the money in your wallets.
Question this list.
and above all:
What is it?
That's just it:
it just is.
Fight it if you will.
does have certain power that knows no known bounds,
but Will is neigh useless unless you act.
can be a step in the wrong direction
if you don't stop to consider the implications of the choice.
is both a gift and a curse,
for we can never know with certainty.
is a generalization for a particular probability
that we see to be in our favor.
is a slippery slope
inexorably leading to isolation.
is what mind felt
when saw itself as the pilot of matter.
is frozen energy-
potential en potentia:
Everything is potential.
Create the future you wish to reap.
Have the courage to blaze your own trail
if none you've found is as you desire;
there's nothing wrong with that:
It isn't selfish
to seek what it is for which your heart and soul cry out.
It isn't selfish
to refuse to follow a Path laid by another.
It isn't selfish
to pursue happiness;
rather, I find it to be quite the contrary:
If we all, independently, could bring about our own ecstasy
try to fathom what a rave life could be.
Puns may be intended;
ne'er forget to read between the lines-
read between the words themselves,

they are a catalyst; a medium:
a sort-of transmittal of intention:
A hammer can build or kill

if only the Will is so inclined.
That is the boundless power of Will.
That is our responsibility as conscious beings.
One must seek construction of the Self,

(All off my questions are rhetorical and not.
Answer them. I dare you. They are my challenges.
Therein lies the journey to understanding the Self;
or, as they call it in academia: "Philosophy.")
I find that One finds what One seeks,

(Or, maybe that's a product of my own bias!)

is refusing to drop it
until you no longer require it.
