  • To Worship

    Do not worship out of hope. Worship out of curiosity. ​Gods always start at the top of your forehead. The most abstract ideas and the most incomprehensible concepts are at the basis of all religion: Chronos (time), Brahman (space), The Word (consciousness). Then they get lower and lower. They deprecate, they decay, and are finally […]

  • “It is not death that a man should fear, but never beginning to live.” No shit!

    I hate FIMO inducing quotes. This, dear Marcus, is so scary. I must miss a button or something, because I just can’t begin to live. I can’t. I am alive, hence I am living. And I fear death because it is so unreasonable. I think we should all fear death. We should. Death sucks. You know […]

  • Thought stream

    It is amazing how little people think of the fact that everything is a convention. I find it astounding, the jail of our social conditioning. But is it more than just that? Because it surely sounds crazy … Sometimes I strongly believe the world is led by insane people. And not only that, but also the […]

  • Perspective

    Persistence is a greater virtue for the lazy. You have the right to arrogance if you make a living from your art. Pride is a worse vice for the gifted. Stubbornness is punished harder on the introvert. Prophecy is ignored when spoken by an extrovert. Culture transforms the exercise of liking into the practice of […]

  • Be Better: Don’t Be Hooked ™

    “all humans are motivated to seek pleasure and avoid pain, to seek hope and avoid fear, and finally, to seek social acceptance and avoid rejection.” ― Nir Eyal, Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products First, ignore pleasure Pleasure is temporary. Pleasure comes to you without your effort of seeking it out. The only thing you have to […]

  • Lying is an act, deceit is an intent

    Yeah, another misconception about a common human thing: The act, any act, cannot be immoral by itself until it is merged with intent. That is why we don’t apply moral standards to animals. Wikipedia is so wrong here. Lying can be done without the intention to deceit. In brief, lying is a form of manipulation and […]

  • You do not need to consume

    Consumption is not an actual need, it is a necessity Needs differ from necessities, because humans can rationalize adversity. Rationalisation is the action of attempting to explain or justify behaviour or an attitude with logical reasons, even if these are not appropriate. A need is solvable adversity. For all adversity too complex to solve we […]

  • My thought stream — at some point in time

    My thought stream — constantly updated Great You know what’s great? Money. Money is freedom. Money is ability. I love being able, don’t you? The Golden Rule The golden rule is NP. A moral compass is P. Unless P = NP, you can’t program the golden rule. Either/or Either tech driven or fear driven. Either a product or an […]

  • It Appears That Understanding Racism Is An Intellectual Milestone. It Really Isn’t.

    It is just painful to see you’re not special. White culture can’t be appropriated because it is currently being shoved down every other race’s throat. All over the fucking world. White culture can only be rejected. We whites can complain about that. Inside what we call the “Western Civilisation” the only race that can be racist […]

  • Power is sugar

    Peter Douglas Molyneux is the creator of Black and White. In a hot summer night I was left alone with a computer, coffee and this game. After about seven hours of gameplay, I remember walking in a complete rush into the bedroom, and waking up my wife shouting from the top of my lungs: I’m […]
