Day 17 Phospholipid Loves Cognitive Dissonance
the funny thing about life is that, everyone takes it far to seriously.
everyone has their profound and unsettling or
assuring beliefs, i on the other hand love to
challenge the world around me constantly.
there is much to this world, not to bracket
everything i can and make it read-at-hand
is it better to destroy then to create what is
meaningless? do i take the leap of faith or
do i live my life the way Nietzsche would
want me to?
my goal - to find universal truths. to find
them and apply them.

proud, metaphysically ambitious, clamoring
mind will hush if you give it an egg."
