the point of it

Precision and accuracy need each other in order to be useful. Emotion and thoughts need each other to find meaning. It's okay to want what you want and not to get it. The point is to at least try hard enough that it's possible.

Desire is a complicated thing, and it can be a wonderful guide to what you need, but it's important to distinguish between the two. Be honest and follow your heart, and the universe will show you things even better than your wildest dreams. You know this from experience.

You don't control the tides of the world, so don't try. Instead be like the water, go with the flow. In doing so you'll stay out of your own way, allowing the others who want to bump into you to get through to you. If you try to push through to them, you can make waves that just push them farther away.

If you're never scared, you're not challenging yourself enough. If you never feel hurt, you aren't trying things to make you stronger. Those feelings teach you more than they can ever ruin you.




These things are just feelings sprouting from disappointment, and feeling disappointment doesn't mean you actually should be disappointed in yourself. If you can embrace that, disappointment can be a much better guide than it has been an enemy in the past.

A feeling doesn't have to be mutual to be real. It doesn't have to be equal to matter. We all need different things because we are all infinitely individual. Nothing could be more beautiful than the diversity that arises in the endless milieu we can share with one another, especially when we share it with the ones we love.

But not everything needs to be shared. Not talking about something doesn't always mean you're hiding it. Some things are better off left unsaid, so be slow to speak, allow yourself to annunciate what you've had time to give thought.

Some thoughts are better off kept to ourselves. Some people are turned away from the sight of a heart on a sleeve. They don't have to look and you don't have to show them. Accept your insecurities - remember others have them too. Have compassion for yourself and you'll be content with you.

The edge is a very fun place to be. But it's also the easiest place to be cut. Again, that's the point. When you put yourself out there, hurt is part of the game. Treat it with the proper caution, manage the risk of it, and even what most might think is too extreme to be worth trying can be enjoyed safely.

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

Free Land, or the ideal mean for a Location Value funded Citizen's Dividend

If we want to liberate ourselves from one another, we can buy into the idea that we can more effectively share this planet. We can do so for the purposes of maximizing human autonomy and the experience of equal liberty for every citizen of the Earth, through each of their local communities. We have the means today to voluntarily buy into a federation of neighborhood scale land trusts with a global reach. Existentially, our birthrights are the greatest lottery of all of history. We can make that a game with winning odds for everyone. The desire to be free, to choose to live how we each wish to live, is strongly felt within each of us. But those who experience it most, unfortunately, value it least. They become so accustomed to protecting or jealously expanding their own experience of it that they have created a system of enforcing their own privileges at the cost of others. I believe all people ought to choose whosoever's service they wish to enter, but I do not believe any of
