stand out

lacan

“If knowing yourself and being yourself were as easy to do as to talk about, there wouldn’t be nearly so many people walking around in borrowed postures, spouting secondhand ideas, trying desperately to fit in rather than to stand out.” ― Warren G. Bennis The thought of an individual standing out in present hypermedia culture is […]

game change

connected

Game Change is the most deeply idealistic political strife conceivable. It is the love impulse of politics and progress. It is the measure of real positive development. Communism, socialism, Marxism, feminism, critical thinking, genders studies, animal rights and ecologism – these are all utterly and unforgivably primitive and oppressive crap compared to Game Change. Or […]

“What we call ‘normal’ is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience. It is radically estranged from the structure of being. The more one sees this, the more senseless it is to continue with generalized descriptions of supposedly specifically schizoid, schizophrenic, hysterical ‘mechanisms.’ There are forms […]

obey

The strongest words echo in the mind, not in the mouths of those who simply beckon it into existence. A word is sacred. All of them are alive. There is a growing problem with determining the direction we take with language. Is it time to universalize all languages? Should we create a new international language? […]

nobody seems to notice

It’s a shame how little people are really concerned with the ongoing global economic situation. Most are caught up with the minor details of egoistic politicians making outlandish remarks that are irrelevant to anything of any consequence. The United States of America is continually defending itself from any and all sources of reason that are […]

no dogmas

“Whether the human mind can advance or not, is a question too little discussed, for nothing can be more dangerous than to found our social philosophy on any theory which is debatable but has not been debated. But if we assume, for the sake of argument, that there has been in the past, or will […]

looking in and speaking out

laugh

For the pressures that substain this country to diminish is a wish-fantasy that is going to leave a lot of people robbed blind of their own lives, most probably without ever experiencing a higher platitude of consciousness or enjoyment than watching prime-time news television viscerally or the false participation in organized sporting events and religious […]

yours to share

fragile

Isn’t it curious that those perceived valuations of “external” events or symbolic abstractions are beyond- (meta-, super-, plus-, etc.) the mental capacity for comprehension? It may be believed that many persons, individually and collectively in groups or societies, have protracted ambivalent measures to extend the meta-human mind to beurocratic insurrection and monetization as a primary […]

bridge across forever

wave

The bridge across forever extends like a vast ocean of experience. The sailors aboard every vessel hail the tumultuous waters beneath them, unabashed by the tidaling waves. These adventurers seek a fortitude within, never able to find their personhood on such solid grounds as the ones most of us walk. What is it that they […]
