Your pointless thoughts & observations

pee pee poo poo.

Not very many people enjoy going to the bathroom. There are certain things that make it unpleasant.

Toilet paper isn’t always readily available. Sometimes you have to go elsewhere to find a bathroom. Sometimes you have to wait in line to use the toilet.

Even when you can find a bathroom, there may be other people in the room trying to use the toilet at the same time.

In order to deal with these situations, you need a device that can help you. This device should have everything you need to successfully relieve yourself.

If you can find a device that includes these features, it will make your life easier. It will make that time spent in the bathroom a lot more pleasant.

There is an autobiographical self (personhood, narrative of past "this is me, that is not me", "I'm the body, I'm the mind") and there is a self as observer (awareness, being in the now, "this is", "I have a body, I have a mind"), then there is the state of no-self which cannot really be described from the ego perspective using language.

The language of the ego is based on a subject/object dichotomy, but the state of no-self is not a subject/object dichotomy. It is a fusion. A lack of differentiation, a melting together, and ultimately an experience of oneness.

Now, as far as losing oneself to something... well, that's the definition of meditation. The core Buddhist practices are designed to help you let go of your ego-based thoughts and to focus on one thing with your senses - whether it be your breath, or a sound, or what have you. That's the way to lose yourself in something - to let go of all other things (including the self), to focus on one thing (the object) with all your senses and emotions. And if that is achieved, then you become one with that object...

So, yes, meditation can lead to "losing oneself". But also to "finding oneself" - by getting rid of the false self which is based on social constructs and ideas about who we are (we are defined by our jobs, our hobbies, our relationships etc) and finding out who we really are as humans beings (feelings, sensations). You could say that it leads you from being an egocentric person towards being a person who experiences true empathy for others. It helps you see through the illusion of what life is supposed to be like and start living it how it truly is - moment by moment.

Sorry for writing so much... I do tend to rant when I get started on these topics... but there you have it! : )

I started working on a new track this month - first one in two years. Have the next four days off to work on it, but not sure if I can finish it by June. Should be a banger tho once it's finished. If it gets finished.

It's just good to finally have inspiration again.

the no self thing is a pretty obvious thing to aknowledge - the headless way is an accessible and easy way to tune into it. and you can just look and notice that there is only the movement and happening of thoughts, feelings, vibes, sensations, senses. but like you say we've all had this imaginary fictional self/duality brainwashed into us.. and that shit just relentlessly flows and babbles along with all of it's drama and bollocks all day and night. even a continuous invisible awareness/witness/experiencer of this is just more passing thought noise - thought is all that there.

the field of life, energy, nature is our reality - we've never existed outside of it as a separate reality/self.

Not yet I'm afraid. I have about two minutes worth written so far, but it feels like I've barely scratched the surface.

Also I feel dumb for making some kind of announcement over a single track, but I already have the melodies and overall structure pretty well planned out. It's nice to have a polyphonic analogue synth on the side to practice on.

Don’t feel dumb about that, it’s awesome to be excited about writing anything! Shout it out! I’m looking forward to hearing it

One of my new year's resolutions for 2021 was pronouncing "Discomfort" as "This cumfart" but it hasn't been going very well to be honest. I'm turning 36 next month and at this rate there's no way I'll have my shit together before hitting the big four-o.

What is is what became in unanimous harmony of two dichotomous subsystems of three pairs of weakly worded considerations, which indulge in excessive equanimity through the hands of the narrator.

Fixed logic of action means aimless alternation between different options that open up, forgetting that spaces may emerge between the options for action that extrapolate an infinitude of further options that fractalise in these spaces, but which remain closed due to the fixed logic of action that leads to show that even in the case of the implementation of an alternative logic of action, there can be no return to the fixed logic of action in such a case, since this can no longer be represented by opening up the spaces contained in the alternative logic of action, since these spaces are realised through the implementation of the „alternative action logics“ have received their own logical structure, which is in competition with the logical structure of the fixed action logic.

If one wanted to call what I have just written a "pseudo-argumentation", then one would have to speak of a "pseudo-argumentation" of the whole of philosophy, insofar as philosophy can only ever be thought of as a "pseudo-argumentation", since philosophy is never more than a "pseudo-argumentation" has to offer, because it can never be more than a "bogus argumentation", since it can only be tied to itself through another "bogus argumentation".

"Vanity is the evil twin of creativity. Those who value themselves too much are no longer open to new ideas and approaches. They already “know it all.” The only way to avoid this trap is to maintain the humility that accompanies knowledge and experience. We all have a tremendous amount to learn. No one knows everything.

If you are too attached to your own ideas, you will never be able to reach a good solution. You will never be able to hear what other people are saying or follow the spirit of an idea. The more important the decision, the more you need to be receptive to others’ ideas.

Curiosity and creativity are the necessary counterweights to the natural tendency to get stuck in your own way of thinking."

-  Richard D. James

One of my favorite things to think about is how our bodies have to give us dopamine every time we take a shit because otherwise nobody would want to do it.

I hope one day scientists will figure out a way to upload all the memories our brains contain into the cloud. then I will spend the rest of my life re-watching years 1993 - 2003. the highlights were all around '97 or '98.

Being is an infinite movement of consciousness which, under the name of death, returns to its original state - its source - from where it has the potential to transform into life again.

Death is a movement of consciousness which, under the name of life, returns to its original state - its source - from where it has the potential to transform into death again.

Spoiler

 

The same principle as above applies to all levels of existence - to all forms of life. Every form of life is a constant movement of consciousness which returns to its source every time it transforms itself into another form of life.

This principle also applies to all things and phenomena in nature.

Every thing and phenomenon in nature is a constant movement of consciousness which returns to its source every time it transforms itself into some other thing or phenomenon in nature.

This principle also applies to all mental states. Every mental state has the potential of transforming itself into some other mental state. When you are angry, for example, you can transform that anger into compassion - forgiveness - understanding - love or whatever else you want. And this is not just something you can do once or twice but it is something you can do repeatedly throughout your life. This means that every mental state has the potential of transforming itself into every other mental state. This is the principle of transformation in nature.

The principle of transformation in nature is a universal principle that applies to everything that exists in nature - including human beings.

Every human being is a constant movement of consciousness which has the potential of transforming itself into every other form of life. The same is true for all human beings. The individual who exists today will not exist tomorrow and the individual who exists tomorrow will not exist today. The individual who exists today is a movement of consciousness which will transform itself into another form of life - another person - tomorrow or the day after tomorrow or next week or next month or next year or in ten years time or twenty years time or thirty years time or fifty years time etc..

Time, however, is not the only factor in transformation. There are other factors as well. The individual who exists today has the potential of transforming itself into some other form of life - some other person - tomorrow or next week or next month or next year or in ten years time or twenty years time or thirty years time or fifty years time etc.. This means that there are factors which can accelerate this process of transformation.

There are also factors which can slow down this process of transformation.

The question is, what are these factors? What are the factors that accelerate and slow down the process of transformation?

The first factor is consciousness. Consciousness is one of the most important factors in transformation because consciousness is one of the most important factors in everything that exists in nature - including human beings. When an individual develops his/her consciousness, when he/she becomes more conscious, when he/she becomes more aware, when he/she becomes more mindful, when he/she becomes more attentive, when he/she becomes more focused, when he/she becomes more concentrated, when he/she becomes more alert, when he/she becomes more sensitive, etc.. the process of transformation will be accelerated.

just knowing there were 13 year olds on here makes me feel like some sort of a pedo. I don't think it's entirely ethical for someone that age to be exposed to all the nonsensical ramblings that are known to happen on here from time to time.
