On "Pain"ful Adversity
These are the times that try men's souls.
- Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
Undisturbed Sleep for Some, Spray Paint for Others
On "Pain"ful Adversity
Inspired by Thomas Paine (1737-1809)'s quote, "These are the times that try men's souls". The titled responsion is...
The completeness of pain is uniquely human when coupled with our perception of time. However domestically abused the domesticated animals we exploit, the realization, the angst and suffering is intensified in the prefrontal cortex area of the human mind. Mind you, the simplicity of doing the harder thing is a virtue.
Dine well my friend
Inspired by Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)'s quote, "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well". The titled responsion is...
Bah, bah, white sheep, have you any wool? All so that we can sleep? Well, think again! Dinner comes at a price, domesticated perhaps but this numerology makes you think. Or does it? Awareness is expandable, some say transcendental. Whichever heuristic makes sense, take advantage!
What You Think You Know, You Really Don't
Inspired by György Lukács (1885-1971)'s quote, "The highest degree of consciousness, the crassest form of 'false consciousness' always manifests itself when the conscious mastery of economic phenomena appears to be at its greatest". The titled responsion is...
For Lukács, consciousness is economic manifestation. The ridiculousness of this claim is not without value. From a biological perspective, consciousness is a felt experience, and from an economic perspective its a reflection of your monetary worth to society. The former is proximal, the latter is distal, both "material" is their own respect.
