A New Reason For Living

Wednesday, 27 October 2010 By Pure Pundit of Philosophy

They say ignorance is bliss. This is certainly true for the meritocracy of our fast and bulbous society. Drained of any useful knowledge they preen and prattle about why we all should be following their commands and their ideas.


A little bit knowledge goes a long way. So what?


Thought. It is a lie.

Thought. It is a lie.


If your thought has been trapped inside your mind for long enough you will find the answer. An answer. Any answer.


On no account should you believe that that a world fleshed out with knowledge is not just a bunch of re-arranged sentences; errors could be made (most likely by you) but via my corrective reasoning; my deductive rationality; my strength of will… all will be corrected. In the end.


How many Gods dance on the head of a pin? Ask the question and you will never know the answer.


Are there any women here today?



Eventually your brain will run out of space and that is when the spite, the anger, the fear kicks in.


Other difficulties exist for mental logic.

Close your eyes, ignore your reality, live the lies. It is your only chance.

The definition spreads optimism like a virus.
