It's not the journey, it's the destination, ok I get it! Wait a minute...

Look, I don't want to trip over my own trope but, for me, the highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it. Where have I heard that before? Wait, what were we talking about?

It's not the journey, it's the destination, ok I get it! Wait a minute...

The titled responsion is "It's not the journey, it's the destination, ok I get it! Wait a minute..." What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Wait, what were we talking about?

Time acts as an unfolding of sorts with our projected anticipation of future outcomes, simultaneously competitive and self-serving. The idea of self-serving carries with it a pejorative meaning — this is incorrect and a perversion in itself as it's typically understood. In my opinion, the individual should orient themselves in a virtuous direction, first emphasizing how to serve prior to the self-interest. Does this make sense?

In order for this to work, and by work I mean function correctly, the greater "Good" must sustain a flourishing for all. I can't help but look toward Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). Have you investigated for yourself this possible catchall solution for an increase in cash flow?

Speaking of flow, this financial flow state is ideal if inflation is kept in check and inflationary pressures are considered an indication of community health.

The Time Travelling Estétique

I have been here before, But when or how I cannot tell: I know the grass beyond the door, The sweet keen smell, The sighing sound, the lights around the shore."
— Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)

The titled responsion traverses time and in this case, is a combination of French forme of a memory mixed with aesthetics — all courtesy of Rosetti.

Could you imagine a return to something primal, natural and pastoral? Each of those holds its own unique nuance of imagery and sense perception.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti - planksip
Dante Gabriel Rossetti was a British poet, illustrator, painter and translator, and a member of the Rossetti family. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848.

This aesthetic is an arrangement of time, a human perception due in part to the heliocentric rhythms that are circadian in nature. Multiple memories are often conflated and manifest with the felt experience of déjà vu. Precognition is considered a fallacy yet a priori thought persists. Genetic perhaps, this body of knowledge exists in the absolute. A timely moratorium of consciousness?
