The Righteous Mind

I’ve been reading a book, actually listening to one, though I am reading one, called “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt. It’s a fascinating book, one that covers a wide variety of topics and themes, but the overarching theme is all about moral psychology, specifically, three different aspects of it. He breaks down his book…

Answer To Job

One of Carl Jung’s most controversial works, Answer to Job, is a deep psychological and mythological breakdown of, perhaps, the most confusing books of the Bible: The Book of Job, and, in turn, God as a psychological phenomenon. I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with the actual story of Job, but I should give…

WestWorld and Jungian Psychology

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, I’ve slipped in a few details about my own life here and there, and one little fact that I’ve mentioned about myself is that I don’t watch a lot of movies or TV shows. Seriously, close to none at all. I usually find myself indulging in a…

The Unopen Door

Here’s a poem I wrote. A little backstory: I’ve had these “words” on the tip of my tongue for quite some time now. I never knew exactly how to articulate them, or even place them in a proper sentence. I’ve been going back and forth trying to write this poem, but every time, it doesn’t…

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…

What is Good and Evil?

The title of this post, as you can tell, poses a question: What is good and what is evil? Seems pretty straightforward, right? We all have our own preconceived notion of good, as well as our own conception of evil. But who is that wrote these moral codes within us? Certainly, if you’re of the…

Written in Blood

Have you ever asked yourself: What makes writing good? Deep? Able to find and touch the lowest parts of the soul? The parts we keep dormant? Nietzche certainly had a criticism of most writers in that most of their writing, it does nothing more for the reader but idle them. But what does he mean? He means…

A Brave New World

**Warning. Long post ahead** It’s quite odd to write about a book that was written nearly a century ago, 1932 to be exact, and it still be very much relevant today, and possibly, increasingly relevant as we continue on into the future. And, you might ask, what do I mean? Well, one thing I’ve found…

Portals into the Past: My Old Poetry

I was going through some of my old poetry I wrote, and don’t even ask why, because it’s beyond me. But as I was going through it, I was fully expecting to have just a series of cringes and maybe even a bit of disgust of myself; my old high school self. But that’s not…

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…
