Happiness is a Group Effort

Can you ask what makes an individual happy without considering the cluster of the group? Forget what you "herd", this mentality is helpful in certain times and a hindrance in others. Sink or swim or condition involves the flourishing and suffering of others. Do we take action or stay indifferent?

Happiness is a Group Effort

Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.

- Pythagoras (570-495 BC)

Happiness is a Group Effort

Inspired by Pythagoras (570-495 BC)'s quote, "Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.". The titled responsion speaks to the upside of group affect.

Repeatability Repeats Itself

Inspired by Victor Hugo (1802-1885)'s quote, "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.". Harmony works here in silent broadcast.

The difference between duality and repetition is slight in variation, the nuance for which is bifurcating towards a novel interpretation of intersectionality. Sans pejorative, the convergence of ideas should result in a plurality of uncompromised group dynamics, better yet a whole larger than the sum of her parts. Holey piety party politics capitulate a threatening alternative when the dogma calls for the destruction of the "others". Herd mentalities do not presuppose immunity!

I Hear Ya

Inspired by William James (1842-1910)'s quote, "The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.". The titled responsion is a reference to the metaphor of time losts, spent and the remains of what we leave behind.

Value and validation are parmamout to the forward direction to which we wind our clocks. The mechanistic nature of this analogy is just that, a hands on approach to the essense of community. Proximal and distal factorys compete for attention, one sometimes at the attrition of the other.

And Victory is the Pursuit of Truth

Inspired by Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)'s quote, "It is not truth that matters, but victory.". This is not an supportive claim of this fascist dictator but responsion none-the-less.

The heard mentality moves the masses. Moving towards a lie is the yellow bar, yet the green bar is, in fact, the second half of the correct pair bond. Red and Yellow are too short and tall respectively. What's your answer?

The Stuff Real Men are Made Of

Inspired by Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979)'s quote, "The people recognize themselves in their commodities; they find their soul in their automobile, hi-fi set, split-level home, kitchen equipment.". The titled responsion is consumed for consumption. Comming up for air we realize we are disposable, as measured by our cultural actions.

The death of God takes on many formes. Disguised as progress, the cost of modernity is addictive and may just be the direction of the herd that we can't hear. Proximal compliance is grue and bleen, yet yellow is secondary, false and a distal dichotomy of dogma.

The Rhetoric of the Heard

Inspired by George Orwell (1903-1950)'s quote, "War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.". The titled responsion is a perverse reversal of sorts. Ok, you made your point. Now move on.

Convincing speech is far from Absolute, so forget what you herd, moving with the group isn't always the correct course of action. This reversal of sorts is an anti-aesthetic; grounding the perverse to some guy named Norm and the sheep that follow him under the protection of the bell curve.

Reductionist Romantics? Not So Says Steiner! Responsible Knowledge is a Fallacy.

Inspired by George Steiner (1929-2020)'s quote, "Every one of my opponents, every one of my critics, will tell you that I am a generalist spread too thin in an age when this is not done anymore, when responsible knowledge is specialized knowledge.". The titled responsion taunts at the promise of a Renaissance man.

This graduated role reversal of humility is an act worth thinking about. Revolutions take place despite our preoccupation with initiation. As the world turns, living is perpetual, limited to our species in language only.
