From emotions to volunteerism.

It's amazing how much of a roller-coaster my emotions are these days. I feel like I can go from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the world at the drop of a hat. I think I have trouble gripping with certainty. When the one thing you're certain about changes, it's pretty unnerving. But, I'm not the first person to be broken up with, and I certainly don't want to wallow in my pain. I wonder what I could do for other people.

Maybe I should start volunteering somewhere. I like to teach people how to do things. Maybe I could help teach kids math. I bet there's a lot of kids who could use the help. I should look into it. I'm not ready for a huge commitment, but I could start with something like once a month. I should look for learning centers that need volunteers. I'm sure they always need volunteers.

I wonder what else I could volunteer for. I'd like to do something to promote the idea of liberty. Everybody wants liberty for themselves, but I think some people are scared of the responsibility that comes with that, particularly the responsibility to take care of people who can't take care of themselves. I really need to start volunteering with the less fortunate more. People are so much more capable than they realize, I would love to help them see that.

The best way I can love the world is to help it learn.

An Unapologetic Paraphrasing of Bastiat's Apology for Landed Property

This is my admittedly snarky paraphrasing of Bastiat's rambling apology on Landed Property in his Economic Harmonies . I think by translating the verbiage into modern terms, which I couldn't help but do so with a pinch of sarcasm, it becomes clear he didn't prove much of anything at all. Instead, a reader feels underwhelmed by its points and overwhelmed by the verbosity of his rather banal parables. Even though he shows what actually causes land to increase in value when he describes the improvements of a city/town growing around land, he insists that all the gained value obtained by landlords by that mechanism is actually just the fruits of their past labors, ignoring his own supposition that value comes from the service provided, in the case of Land, by a better site to occupy, not labor. If it pleases you, enjoy the following: The economists of all sorts say that landlord's charge rent for value they did not create. Most say it is unjust, but some begrudgingly ad

Our Dancing Universe: the Word and the Circle of Light.

The Word lets light and begets all things. I have composed the following in awe of the beauty and balance of our cosmos. It is based off of concepts connected by three pieces of scientific literature. The summary of each is as follows: 1. "A unifying theory of dark energy and dark matter: Negative masses and matter creation within a modified ΛCDM framework" describes how the existence of a negative mass fluid would result in the orientation and behavior of the cosmos as we observe it, removing the need for the hypothetical notions of dark matter and dark energy to describe the shapes of galaxies and the observed expansion of space-time. 2. "Negative-Mass Hydrodynamics in a Spin-Orbit–Coupled Bose-Einstein Condensate" describes how when matter gets extremely cold, approximately absolute zero, atoms condense into a collective fluid that behaves as if it has negative mass. 3. "On the origin of gravity and the laws of Newton" describes how gravity itself i


What is it? You know. It holds you back, and it's okay that it is alluring. You need to do it sometimes to remember that you  don't want to do it. Accept it. Forgive it. Face it. Fix it. You don't have to be perfect.  But you can always try to learn to be more perfect. Your anxiety is telling you things. Important interpretations of your surroundings. Your choices are yours to make. And yours to live with so adapt accordingly. Be creative with your choices and you will benefit as you learn to do what is best.
