Be (pessimistic) optimistic.

Optimistic thinking is leading people to set up businesses that have no realistic prospect of financial success, shows new research which may help explain why only fifty per cent of businesses in the UK survive their first five years. (1)

All life ends up in death.

The most optimistic ones will experience the ultimate sorrow. And die.

Only the most pessimistic ones will live longer.

Only to see that they were never alive in the first place.

Be optimistic. For the Sun is dead.

And the brightest moon is lighting your path…

Down to the depths of the great sea.

Happiness. Meaning of life. Genes.

For the first time, locations on the human genome have been identified that can explain differences in meaning in life between individuals. This is the result of research conducted in over 220,000 individuals. The researchers identified two genetic variants for meaning in life and six genetic variants for happiness. (1)

We want to be unhappy.

So we choose to see our happiness in nothingness.

Once upon a time we were truly happy.

Only because we were blind.

Seek the meaning of life in the void of being.

You will find it full of everything…

Forgiving. Hating. Loving.

When assessing the moral character of others, people cling to good impressions but readily adjust their opinions about those who have behaved badly, according to new research. This flexibility in judging transgressors might help explain both how humans forgive – and why they sometimes stay in bad relationships, said the study’s authors. (The research – conducted by psychologists at Yale, University of Oxford, University College London, and the International School for Advanced Studies – appeared in the journal Nature Human Behaviour)

“The brain forms social impressions in a way that can enable forgiveness,” said Yale psychologist Molly Crockett, senior author of the paper. “Because people sometimes behave badly by accident, we need to be able to update bad impressions that turn out to be mistaken. Otherwise, we might end relationships prematurely and miss out on the many benefits of social connection”. (1)

Modern humans. Lost humans.

Believing they do not forgive.

But that they are programmed to.

And yet, we once again see the wrong question.

Attaching it to the wrong answer.

If we are programmed to forgive.

We should not hate. And yet we do.

Look at all that hatred in peoples’ eyes.

There was never a better proof of love…

Shame on you. These three simple words can have devastating effect on an individual’s psyche.

But why is that? Some theorists argue that feeling shame is a pathology, a condition to be cured. Others dismiss it as a useless, ugly emotion. A research team at the University of Montreal and UC Santa Barbara’s Center for Evolutionary Psychology (CEP), however, suggest something altogether different. Shame, they argue, was built into human nature by evolution because it served an important function for our foraging ancestors.

Living in small, highly interdependent bands, the researchers explain, our ancestors faced frequent life-threatening reversals, and they counted on their fellow band members to value them enough during bad times to pull them through. So being devalued by others – deemed unworthy of help – was literally a threat to their survival. Therefore, when considering how to act, it was critical to weigh the direct payoff of a potential action against its social costs. (1)

Shame on me. Because I value your opinion.

Not because I value you. But because I value me and will need your help.

But this is not true shame. But a hypocritical stance for personal survival.

True shame never comes from the outside.

True shame is always internal and personal.

I do not feel shame for what you might think about me. But because of what I know about myself. I do not care about your opinion. I only care about mine.

Only a God can truly be ashamed.

Standing on top of existence.

Conversing with Himself.

There is no one to converse with.

And yet, someone is talking.

A tear dropping.

A cosmos laughing…

Demons. Computers. A world of chaos. Death by order.

Physicists have employed a version of Maxwell’s demon to reduce entropy in a three-dimensional lattice of super-cooled, laser-trapped atoms – a process that could help speed progress toward creating quantum computers. (1)

A cosmos full of chaos.

We struggle into increasing order in the universe.

At the end we will succeed.

And the cosmos will die.

Look at the butterfly. It is not beautiful because it is orderly and neat. It is beautiful because it is a chaotic little creature looking for a mate before it dies. Look at the stars. They are not beautiful because they are tidy and neat. They are beautiful because they are raging with fire and heat. Look at you. You are not as orderly a creature as you might think.  Changing every minute. Full of different cells and even different organisms. Full of rage, love, forgiveness, hate, sins and emotions.

Accept yourself.

The path to heaven passes through chaos.

Don’t trust the demons.

Order is another synonym of Hell…
