The World is Not Ours

Why? Why? Why?

I will start out by apologizing. Because that is what people do for some reason. What I’m about to say is simply something that will offend a vast majority of you all. What I am about to say will even offend me, when I am in a different mindset. Fortunately, my brain is capable of having a multifaceted outlook towards life. This particular one is my favorite though, because I do think it’s a real issue that people don’t bother thinking about. Onto offending you. 

 

Humans. We are the most vile, ignorant, dastardly, idiotic beings. Not all of us. But the majority. What we ought to be is enlightened, but so very few really are such. One of my greatest gripes with humanity is our uncontrollable urge to overpopulate this beautiful Earth. Which leads to pillaging the Earth for her resources. The consequence of which is death. Complete and utter global devastation on a scale that extends through time, rather than just in the present. A bomb devastates in the present, but what we have been doing for the last century extends through time itself. We are killing everything. Why? Because we are selfish. Mind you, I’m restraining from cursing, mostly because I don’t feel it to be necessary at the moment. 

Honestly, why can’t we just control our populations? Why do we have to drill for oil everyfuckingwhere? Whenever I see a poor creature stuck dying in the aftermath of an inevitable oil spill, I honestly feel like… I… I can’t even describe it. Rage and sadness, compassion and hatred, all these feelings that just rush over me, all because we can’t have enough of our precious oil. Keep in mind that for those of you who don’t know me, I’m an incredibly calm person. I don’t get worked up over much in life. 

One might ask, how do we control our population? Well, step one would be to stop having more children. If we were to adhere to that simple step, we could over the course of a few generations, get our population under control. But we can’t do that. Why? Because people are stupid. Many don’t believe in such methods of population control. Such as using birth control. Which brings me to my final point because I don’t like being upset over this for too long, so I feel like finishing this up. Final point. Religion. Why can’t we stop that madness? Just be a peaceful person. Be kind. Be absolute. Just be. Exist in a transcendental state. Find yourself and then cultivate yourself. Help others cultivate themselves. Why mess around with religion? It’s so terrible. If I feel like continuing ranting, I will post another post on just why most religions are awful tomorrow.

Oh! I took that picture of the amazing art museum here in KC. I am liking this long exposure photography stuff at night.

Remember me, for I would never forget you.

Well, really I wouldn’t. It is rather surprising how often I think of people that have passed through my life at some point or another. If we ever meet, I will remember you, even if it is just vaguely. Of course the more time we spend together, the more I remember you. I was just thinking of a friend of mine and well listening to this song (I’ll post it at the end) just made me feel all nostalgic. Being a student has its limitations, namely not being able to travel randomly or having the money to do sweet things. But hey, that’s part of life I suppose. I just want to say that I miss you very much. You being the person I was thinking about. 

In other news, I believe this post will be much shorter than yesterdays. I’m just really trying to keep the habit of writing something each day, so bear with me. Content will get much better. Though I’m running out of pictures I like that aren’t of me that I have taken, so I may have to go out and get more. Which should be fun. 😀

Infected Mushroom. Would you try them?

So I went to one of the coolest shows in a while, and it was an Israeli band by the name of Infected Mushroom. Hella trancy stuff. Anyway, one of my favorite DJs played as well, Butch Clancy. I’m sure I’ve posted some remix of his before on one of these posts (The Funeral by Band of Horses). So he was awesome, then Infected Mushroom just blew me away. Can’t be described. Seriously. And I wasn’t even tripping (I thought about it…). I was with an awesome group of people and I mean it was just awesome. Though they have ridiculously priced drinks there. But it was all good.

Anyway, onto something different. Like. Snow? Nah. Why would I write about snow? This blog post will be rather short unfortunately. Well, it sucks for you guys. I’m about to read Island by Aldous Huxley, so I think I’ll be perfectly okay with ending this post early. It has been loaned to me by probably the most important person in this entire world and even beyond the world. Eh. I worry about posting things like this occasionally, because like I’ve said these are my thoughts. Which is why I typically don’t give out the address to this blog that much. Which probably explains why I’ve had no readers the last few days. Oh well.

I’ll finish with two things: One) look up Infected Mushroom and listen to their songs! Two) Song of the Day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xeQ31jQNAVI

Thoughts on a Dreary Day

leave a comment »

ImageSo first off, I want to say that I probably could have taken a better picture, but I like it, as it’s my view from one of my windows. And it’s a golf course covered in snow. Doesn’t get better than that. But with that in mind, it’s been a rather dreary day, as I’ve confined myself to my house, due to me not wanting to spread whatever it is that I am sick with (not sure if it is contagious, but no need to take the risk).

That does give me time to think. So here I shall convey my thoughts on religion, as I often seem to do on this blog…

I’ll start by merely saying that I respect all religions equally, despite them not respecting each other. I don’t quite understand what it is about religion that makes it more alluring than the pursuit of knowledge. So my basic understanding of following a religion is that it gives you purpose in life, and that it supposedly answers those questions to which there is not an answer to currently. Questions such as how did life come about.
Well, I feel that those two things, purpose and answering unanswered questions, can be for the most part attained by the pursuit of knowledge. I have a slight bias towards the sciences as I consider them to be awesome, but hey, any knowledge is good knowledge. So why is it that you follow your religion, because if it is at your belief’s core not one of the two things I mentioned, I clearly haven’t given it much thought, and I would like to do so.

Right, so here are my ending thoughts: a bit of a sidebar actually, but I just got super annoyed by my mother again. I feel like being superstitious is grounds for ridicule. But I respect my mother enough to not tell her that she’s wrong. She thinks that spending too much time on a computer/cell phone can lead to cancer because of some silly chain e-mail. Stupid, I know. I do realize that spending too much time in front of a computer is detrimental to your general well being, and I don’t spend that much time in front of one when I’m not sick. But it doesn’t cause cancer. That’s simply ridiculous. Annoyances aside, these are my thoughts, and now I will leave you with one of the greatest playlists of all time (it’s precisely 5 hours and 40 minutes of amazing instrumental music): http://8tracks.com/jonomcdono/ze-compiled-study-mix 
A few notable songs from it: He Films the Clouds pt. 2 by Maybeshewill, Shifting Sands Wreck Ships by Lights Out Asia, and one of my favorites: I’ll See You When I See You, and I Hope This Will Be, Won’t Be Soon… by Pie Are Squared. In fact I like that song so much, that I’ll link it here as well: http://piearesquared.bandcamp.com/track/ill-see-you-when-i-see-you-and-i-hope-this-will-be-wont-be-soon

It’s been quite some time. So here are my thoughts.

So, yeah. It’s been too long since I’ve blogged. But I had an epiphany. More of an idea. So roll with me, those of you who actually read this particular one.
Okay, so I’ve been thinking, what is our purpose in life. (Bear with me, I know that not all my posts have ever been so optimistic, but I think this one will turn out to be rather optimistic).
Purpose in life. Right. Well, I think that our purpose in life ought to be to live for ourselves. Don’t let other people guide you over a cliff. Guide yourself into the stars.
Basically, here’s how I see it: Live your life, as you wish to live it, but along the way, touch other people’s lives as if it were your own life. Life is above all else sacred.

See, I can do optimism.
Sorry if this is ramble-esque, but it’s just my thoughts as they come along. I don’t script this. I don’t make a rough draft and perfect it. I write it here, so that I know that I’m not the only person in the world with my most inner thoughts. Someone (you) reads them, and hopefully connects with them. Or critiques them. Both are great, as my thoughts are always morphing into newer and better thoughts.

Going off the optimism thing, I’d also like to say that I have rather recently gotten out of a relationship-esque thing. It wasn’t a bad situation or anything, and I believe we are still good friends (always nice to have friends), but it just reminds me of how there are people who tend to be unhappy in this world. I have a message for you people: I should be upset, but I am not. I don’t believe in being upset. If I am ever upset over something, I will probably get over it very quickly, either because I bottle it up and store it in a shelf that only occasionally gets knocked down or because I see a better situation in life up ahead. Despite how bleak life may look at times, no matter how much you want to be in a different situation, life is amazing. Life is beautiful. And (to me, most importantly), life is incredible.

A song I like to listen to that a very special friend of mine introduced me to is “Face Up” by Lights. Here’s a youtube link, if you’re interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtgMSidl1zU.

Okay, that’s it for this rather disorganized post.
