Viral Containers of Ointment

A contained consciousness of sorts is transparent and spreads at will. Determined to surpass an outcome of chaos implies some sort of transcendent behaviour or heuristic under the influence of a singular focused vector of thought.

Viral Containers of Ointment

No one recovers from the disease of being born, a deadly wound if there ever was one.

Viral Containers of Ointment

Inspired by Emil Cioran (1911-1995)'s quote, "No one recovers from the disease of being born, a deadly wound if there ever was one". The titled responsion is

A contained consciousness of sorts is transparent and spreads at will. Determined to surpass an outcome of chaos implies some sort of transcendent behaviour or heuristic under the influence of a singular focused vector of thought. Counterfactual to the intuitive imaginings of others is an essential reality to the descent and dissent of man. Take your pick or play your part, the actors among us are benevolent at times, and yet all too often indifferent to their surroundings. This must change.

Anecdote of the Jar

BY WALLACE STEVENS

I placed a jar in Tennessee,  
And round it was, upon a hill.  
It made the slovenly wilderness  
Surround that hill.

The wilderness rose up to it,
And sprawled around, no longer wild.  
The jar was round upon the ground  
And tall and of a port in air.

It took dominion everywhere.  
The jar was gray and bare.
It did not give of bird or bush,  
Like nothing else in Tennessee.
