What is Conscious Thought?

I was reading this article the other day which poses an idea, or to him, a fact, but it poses this idea that we don’t really have any conscious thought. I’ll link the article, just so you can read it, though, I’m not going to reference it too much in this post, but rather just…

Was God Naive?

I have this problem, one in which I’m trying very hard to overcome, but it almost seems impossible. What is my problem you ask? I can’t stop myself from continuing to start new avenues of creativity, you could call it, without finishing my current one. What I mean by that is, although I haven’t finished…

Moral Perspectives

The more and more I dive into, what some would call, the world of mysticism, spirituality, or transcendence, I find that there’s less and less I know about the nature of reality itself. Many people I run into and happen to have a conversation with, even among many of my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, it…

Portals Into the Past

I still don’t understand how a single picture, it can bring back so many memories. It’s such an odd thing. It’s almost like we forget we still have these memories locked away in our unconscious minds. We go on with our lives like it never happened and BAM, you go through an old picture album,…

Why I don’t pray

I want to write about something that I’m fairly certain is going to be close to one of my more controversial posts, if not, my most controversial. It’s something I’ve been meaning to write about for quite some time, but every time I start, it doesn’t feel as if I’m ready. Now, for reasons beyond…

How Two Minutes Changed My Life.

I want to write about a curious thing that happened to me the other day. These past few days, since last Friday actually, I have been feeling quite tired. And I mean that in a literal and metaphysical sense. I was, indeed, quite tired, as I wasn’t getting enough sleep. In fact, the total hours…

Let’s Talk About Libido

Jungian and Freudian psychology, at first glance, may seem similar in nature. This is due to the fact that both Jung and Freud considered repressed libido as the sole cause of a neurosis (mental disease) in an individual. But, like I said, this is only at first glance. Like most things, the devils in the details, and…

Do Pictures Speak Louder Than Words?

I wrote this on Quora, but I thought I’d share it on my blog, as I think the message here is quite powerful. Here it is, Do you pictures speak louder than words? Yes. Pictures do speak louder than words, generally speaking, but I don’t think that has much do with the lack of power…

A Man’s Search for Meaning

I mentioned in a post on my analysis of “Notes from Underground”, that there are few books, if any at all, that have fundamentally changed my life. Although I described Notes from Underground as one of these books that did so, it seems odd to not regard this book, A Man’s Search for Meaning, as a book of that…
