"Unfathomable loneliness and sadness crept through him: he saw his life down the solemn vista of a forest aisle, and he knew he would always be the sad one: caged in that little round of skull, imprisoned in that beating and most secret heart, his life must always walk down lonely passages. Lost. He understood that men were forever strangers to one another, that no one ever comes really to know anyone, that imprisoned in the dark womb of our mother, we come to life without having seen her face, that we are given to her arms a stranger, and that, caught in that insoluble prison of being, we escape it never, no matter what arms may clasp us, what mouth may kiss us, what heart may warm us. Never, never, never, never, never.?"

- Thomas Wolfe "Look Homeward, Angel"

Those who make a peaceful revolution impossible, will make a violent revolution inevitable.

At first glance I thought the YouTube clip was a close to 3 hour French existentialist masterpiece film then I clicked on it and was like "oh yeah, this is cool too."

We grasp at interpersonal relationships to ease the existential isolation, the hopelessness, the groundlessness, the insoluble prison of being. What is the answer? Perhaps, it is need less love relationships. I don't think it erases the existential isolation because it will always be there lurking similarly to death. It makes me consider taking up Buddhism again but I cannot reconcile that decision. Maybe if Patrul Rinpoche came back from the dead to be my teacher or someone like Matthieu Ricard. I really enjoyed the Tao Te Ching. I am still reconciling Eastern philosophy versus Western psychotherapy. I am attempting to reconcile a lot. Determinism versus responsibility is a big one as well. Do I need an activist or a therapist (or both or neither)? Therapy bills are no joke.

The answer? Just quit taking yourself too seriously. Go get drunk, do some drugs, fuck someone, kill yourself.

Then there's the other side of the room. Start a family, enjoy your kids, fuck your wife, kill yourself.

Or you could just go straight to killing yourself if you're not enjoying "life". It doesn't matter anyway because we'll all be dead.

I am in recovery from substance abuse so no thank you on getting drunk or doing drugs.

Fuck someone is kind of a similar wager. I am sure there are people out there who would want to fuck me but I am not really actively looking for these people so.... At this point it is more about forming a relationship than just using people for sex.

I don't want to kill myself. Annihilating myself just on a whim or because someone tells me to on the internet seems like a pretty bad wager.

For someone who is not even dating starting a family seems kind of far off ya know? I'm not convinced it's a bad idea but again that is so far off. Why not start with need less love with another? Or, for that matter going on a date with someone?
