Sanity seems to be, as far as I can tell, the word we use for “normal”. It is the descriptor attached to modes of perceiving and behaving that do not stray outside of the boundaries of our cultural, familial, social and psychological norms. So sanity, then, is predictability.

Identity and Dualism

As an atheist, in the sense that I do not hold to any idea of god or follow any theistic religion, I’d like to propose that identity is a social fiction that exists for the purposes of convenience, and that we confuse the fiction for the reality. The most simple argument against dualism (and in turn identity) is how one explains relationship if things are … Continue reading Identity and Dualism

Money is a pure abstraction

It is a symbol that is used to represent wealth, but it has no inherent value of its own, unlike gold, which can be used in jeweler and computing. Therefore, accumulation of money is only an accumulation of symbols that represent wealth. How much wealth a person will get out of their money determines on how clearly they understand what genuine wealth is. We can … Continue reading Money is a pure abstraction

Harmful Behavior – Support of religious scriptures

We can define truth as, a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like.

Left & Right

pol It seems plain to me now more than ever that the group we normally refer to as “conservative” or “right wing” is comprised of people who are fundamentally afraid of living. These individuals cling to money, material goods and tradition, finding new experience and change threatening to their idea of themselves, their egos. Current research suggests that conservative voters don’t base their beliefs on … Continue reading Left & Right

Meditation (Guided – Of Sorts)
