REGRET; the feeling of not having learned yet...

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on August 8, 2020 at 5:20 AM



Today, I want to talk about "regret."



We think "regret" is a natural and needed part of life because we grew up being told it was a sign of a good person. Good people are good and aware enough to regret bad decisions, or good intentions that came out wrong, or things we should have done and didn't, or things we shouldn't have done and did, and so on....

THINGS! and Thinks!

Today, I want to talk about "things."



"Things" being physical matter, ideas, or even experiences.



"...things themselves have no natural power to form our judgements."

Zeno's Arrow Paradox ... Expanded

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on July 18, 2020 at 6:45 PM


The Gloves Are Off!


Today, I want to talk about Zeno's "Arrow Paradox" supporting the idea that motion is an illusion. Then, I'll expand on the idea.


In the original thought experiment... Zeno of Elea (495-430 B.C.E.) was using an arrow being shot at a target to support Parmenides of Elea's (515-450ish B.C.E.) claim that motion is an illusion.

Steel Talon Elliott ( May 31, 1991 - June 1 2020)

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on June 1, 2020 at 6:00 AM


This post is in loving memory of my little brother, Steel Talon Elliott, who died this year of a heart-attack (non COVID-19 related.) 


"Remember you're human." My Mom said to me.


It keeps ringing in my mind because the implication that I think I am inhuman, or maybe superhuman... hangs...

Aware #731

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on April 20, 2020 at 10:25 PM



Communication–

on the level of awareness,

automatically hard-wired accurateness,

and sometimes even preemptive

to reality unfurling;

natural chemical clairvoyance,

resonating with energy

Choosing Happiness : Beyond Poverty

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on April 20, 2020 at 10:00 PM



Life is different when you’re poor,

no “seconds” or even any “more,”

mending your own hand-me downs,

making your own musical sounds,

using what someone else threw out,

sleeping on the floor without a pout,

rationing potatoes and making bread

-sometimes out of pancake or ...

Find Peace

I think

and I see

I feel

and I breathe

I live

and I bleed

I want

and I need

 

I am

Waves of energy

Bonded in

Tangible physicality

Evolved by

Species practicality

Doing nothing

To prove rationality

Fear-defense

A true reality

Ecneconni > Innocence

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on April 17, 2020 at 6:55 AM


Found myself sitting in jail again: third time, third city, and a woman mid-transfer from the state penententary telling me I didn’t belong there; ”too innocent.”

Not Even Human

My Twin says, “I want you to do this challenge A posted.”


So, of course, I ask what the challenge is, and she says...


Who are you, really?” using a swanky kind of accent, adding in her normal voice, “That’s it, those words, that’s the challenge.”

The Hawk in a Crows Eye

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on April 17, 2020 at 6:10 AM


“I’m sure you’ll agree, time is money.” He cooed confidently.

 

I laughed, repeating a bit mockingly, “time is money...”

 

He cocked his head confusingly, questioningly, without asking a thing.

 

“Time,” I began humoring his curiosity, ” is a force w...
