Together in misery…

Researchers say it may seem contradictory that a means of generalizing to people at large is used when reflecting on one’s most personal and idiosyncratic experiences. To cope with negative experiences or to share an insight, people often use the word “you” rather than “I”.

“It’s something we all do as a way to explain how things work and to find meaning in our lives,” said Ariana Orvell, a doctoral student in the Department of Psychology and the study’s lead author. “When people use “you” to make meaning from negative experiences, it allows them to ‘normalize’ the experience and reflect on it from a distance”, said Orvell.

For example, “you win some, you lose some” would indicate that a person has failed in a situation, but by using the word ‘you’, they are able to communicate that this could happen to anyone. (1)

We are all bound together by misery.

Happiness tears us apart.

It is death which unites us.

Life makes us unique and alone.

Darkness makes us seek love.

Light makes us look away.

The secret of the meaning of life seems to be closer to dusk than to the sunrise. There seems to be a strange message lingering in the dark corners of the cosmos. And we can only listen to it when crying…

Happy new year, with disease and misery!

Most of us do not want to be reminded of the basic element of life. For all of you that had the courage to continue reading this wire despite its despicable title, I have one reminder: health is overrated! We do not know what Life is. And yet we are afraid of not-living. We do not know why we are in this world, but we are grateful for Life. And yet, we deny its basic ingredient: death. The majority of us – me included – is afraid of death and disease.

But as Shestov said, when was the last time that the majority found the correct answer for a serious philosophical question? Never. And if we must listen to someone, this is the voice of the Illogical in this matter. Who wants to die healthy after all?

Let us look at the Mystery of Life through the liberating vision of misery and disease and not with the coward eyes of the western human, who while being too much attached to the material aspect of life forgets its essence.

AshleyMadison, marriage, culture…

AshleyMadison.com, the dating website for people seeking affairs with married individuals which claims 20 million members worldwide, has dropped another pin on its map — Asia. The company cast out its first line in Japan in June, reeling in under half a million members within three months, said Noel Biderman, company CEO, “making it our most successful launch ever.” (1)

Site user statistics provide insight into the global phenomenon of infidelity. “Many of the Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela, have lower female adoption rates than in North America and Europe. In France we see a greater percentage of married women over the age of 40 using the service than anywhere else in the world”, the company’s CEO says.

The line between “civilized” and “hypocrite” is a blurred one. Are you more “sexually liberated” when you are married and seek the company of another woman or are you just plain wrong? Could it be that the women in France would be happier if they hadn’t married? Or are they happily married because they use AshleyMadison?

Does it matter what kind of “tools” you use to be happy?

No matter what current psychological theories might say, the only one who can judge that is your SELF. Stay alone and just think. Do you feel good about YOU?

Oh how much have we lost contact with our best friend. How have we alienated the only ONE who can be strict with us while at the same time he understands and loves us without limitations!

Or, if you can’t do that just go and jerk off! You will be amazed how positive effects can such a low level act have in your life and in the life of the ones you love! 🙂

Africa, misery, faith in God…

It would seem logical to have the LEAST faith in God when problems arise.

But it is quite the opposite…

People in Africa have all the problems and misery in the world and yet, their faith in God is stronger than ever.
