Everyone Is Alone

I’ve just finished up the book, Island, by Aldous Huxley, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time, possibly since the last Huxley book I read, A Brave New World, which I wrote a post about that here: A Brave New World. Anyway, there’s this scene towards the end…

“Attention! Here and Now.”

Do you know why I chose the title I chose? It’s from a book by Aldous Huxley called Island. It was one of his last works, if not his last, that he wrote before he died. Although not considered his most well-known books, it is widely considered one of his most important, as it was, indeed, written…

Self Worth and Self Realization

I feel like this is going to be one of those sappy posts where I try to make myself, or who ever is reading this feel good. If not that, the initial presumption, based off the title, will give that pre-conceived perception of what this post might be about. And, well, it might be exactly…

People Are Weird.

The one thing I’ve learned over the past several months more than anything is this: People are weird. Now, this doesn’t seem like a surprising thing to say because let’s face it; people are weird. There are a lot of weird people out there. But the truth of the matter is this, most of the time, your…

Life, Friends, and Self-Development

The past few days I got to spend time with a really good friend. I haven’t known them for long, but it’s one of those people that, although you haven’t known known for years, it feels like you have. And, well, we talked a lot, mostly about people, life, and things in general, often diving unusually…

Young, Dumb, and Stupid Decisions.

I haven’t written for over a month, almost 2 months, and I’m fully aware of this. I’ll just be transparent to whoever is reading this and say it’s because I really haven’t felt like writing. But I have my reason for this, too. In short, life is weird. I don’t really know how to say…

Was the Rational Mind Inevitable?

There are quite a few number of atheists, specifically, new-atheists, who have this notion of religion in that they believe that it was an unnecessary by-product by way of what is called a “Genetic Fallacy”. Basically, it’s the idea that just because a certain trait or characteristic, even way of acting in the world, doesn’t…

Message In Your Misfortunes

I’m reading a book called The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt, and although I’m not too far into it, I came across a part that really struck a chord with me. It was a speech by the Chief Justice, John Roberts. You can find it here: Chief Justice, John Roberts But I’ll go ahead…

Is Pain Real?

I haven’t written in quite a while. I think it might be two weeks since, and I apologize, if anyone is actually paying attention to me. I’ll tell you that there’s been a lot going on in my life, much more than I’m comfortable or willing to share, other than simply that there really has…

Horus and Jesus Christ: A Transformation Story.

I don’t know if anyone actually closely follows my blog, but if you do, I want to say a few things. First, I apologize I haven’t been writing these past few days, and it’s not because I didn’t have anything to write about, but rather, I didn’t yet know how I wanted to write it.…
