~ Selfish, Mean, Stupid ~

Selfish, mean, & stupid...

And words are meaningless in the face of our shear emptiness and complete loneliness.

We can't change one simple thing in this world. Only bluster. And bolster support for egos that have convinced us that we are them.






Such is the language of philosophy and The Philosophy of Language.

Imagine a world without language or knowledge...THAT IS WHO WE ARE.

Knowledge is an illusory addendum.

This is the shocking truth.

So much philosophy is made-up of whimsical projections of a verbose universe supported with Gordian knots of logic. Whereas most meaningful realizations of mankind's situation of himself and his reality become literal philosophy only after the shear terror of an experience wears off...

We live in bubbles. I for one am still attempting to overcome a hedonistic base of fear in hopes of experiencing one moment of reality.

Every ''thing'' is made of going away.

The only thing that stays is not-a-thing.

And that's who we are. We are not-a-thing watching every thing appear and disappear. Clinging on to things that do not actually exist is what the mind does.

We cannot see the mind, but that which is seen is what the mind that does not exist has superimposed upon not-a-thing, aka artificially created.

Once this is seen through by the mind funnily enough..what remains is the freedom of zero point. Nothing can harm that which does not exist. And that which does not exist always apparently exists.

It's god's little open secret.

Language is a tool to create positive feelings among people who make alliances for survival.

Language makes is easier to share interesting experiences.

Language make it possible to make other people laugh, also on the phone.

Let us be grateful for it.

It's a lovely story, but the point is...

Language is the only thing alive here. Pieces of plastic shapes shape our world, no thing else is alive here.

Your whole reality is built and reliant upon a bucket of letters. Image

Once we can look at the truth honestly,without rejecting it, then we can really start to have fun with it, and maybe do nothing else but laugh until we die from laughing.
