In Other Words Lighten Up

 

At its core, the universe is not a rational place – the universe doesn’t think (but it creates randomly or by the nature of the universe when worlds collide, burn out, break apart, however the universe works). Plato and Kant say the world is amenable to reason (it won’t argue, it’s just itself while you do the thinking) aka man thinks. In the face of a world filled with endless strife (synapses, synapses, synapses) we ought (there’s the o word – ought) minimize natural desires to achieve a tranquil state of mind and disposition for universal (well rounded) beneficence (becoming selfless) and overcome frustration in artistic, moral, aesthetic forms (there’s that f word that anyone with any sense loves to write off as intangible twisting it to unachievable) of awareness.

 

Our bodies don’t think our brains do though it’s a gray area being physical that causes us to be able to reason, to think about stuff, to figure stuff out. Our bodies are amenable to reason, to eat right, to relax, to smile, to be happy, to do what’s right, to be positive, to get out of our own way, to think of the other guy, to add to life.

 

Not so sublime really. We got this.

Strictly Platonic

 

An orgy, the functional state of multiple realizability, is preferred over masturbation, the act of self-inflation.

 

In Philosophy: Orgy – functional Platonic state of multiple realizability; masturbation – an act of self-inflation.

 

In Philosophy, an Orgy is a functional Platonic state of multiple-realizability and we all know that boys will be boys.

 

 

See what I mean?
