And so it Goes

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

November 15, 2007. Last furnished night in apartment. Enjoying my last two movies. Tomorrow is my last night. It’s a wet night, cloudy. Tall buildings across the river release customary mysterious steam from rooftops. Steam glows in beams of light, unites with clouds. Atmosphere of benevolent doom. Noir. Art Deco. No sign of life. Only […]

The Newspaper

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

The newspaper is a shared heartbeat among all people. Our zeitgeist, my times; can you imagine a reunion of cosmic ghosts? Shadows of a planetful of people will converge. Oh, look at the fools that live today! How attached they are to what belongs to us. Rightfully. These were our stomping grounds. Some of us […]

Yes, Let’s!

Let’s investigate The meaning Of this poem. Yes, let’s!

Perfect Being

Friday, October 6th, 2006

Sweet memory Of an ordinary rainy day. Got off work Stepped into a bus. Clear, peaceful, alone. Rain pelted my ride Through empty neighborhoods Of big trees and good people. My few years still Light as the clouds. But old enough to know It’s just me and the world, Forever just me And my being […]

Unmeditation

Saturday, September 9th, 2006

Don’t meditate to calm yourself. Meditate to push against the membrane that encloses you. It is not conceivable to me that anyone will have any success breaking through it. But I encourage you to close your eyes and try until your mind is reduced to an exhausted lump of flesh. (It might be a good […]

Life

Saturday, September 9th, 2006

Life is a law of our universe, like the mathematical, physical and chemical laws. When conditions are right, stars explode into supernovae. When conditions are right, stuff organizes itself into life. The gap between animate and inanimate came pre-bridged. Obligatory Carl Sagan quote: “We’ve begun at last to wonder about our origins, star stuff contemplating […]

The Unimportance of Living Well

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

In discussions on the meaning of existence, it is often said that we do not know what we live for, but it’s a good idea to live well. I agree with that statement, but it also makes me mad to hear it in the context of existential inquiry. Prescriptions for living have no importance in […]

How to Live (Part 2)

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Don’t be afraid of having a closed mind, being a hypocrite or contradicting yourself. You don’t have to be patriotic. You must not do evil. After the age of 30, don’t yammer in subjective discussions to which there will obviously be no resolution due to your intervention. Always remember that you would be a savage […]

God

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

When a person says “I believe in God,” he is really saying “Neither I nor anyone else I know of can make sense of existence.” Let’s say you don’t know squat about nuclear physics and you are asked to give a lecture on it. You go up on stage and say “Nuclear physics is a […]
