To experience the life you have to live it

It is extremely melancholy to realize that nothing has any intrinsic meaning, that life is essentially meaningless! I think it is, and it is dangerous even to think about it. 

It takes courage to live life understanding that no matter what you might accomplish, all will disappear like smoke in the air; that no matter what you do or you might attempt to do, it's all useless. 

Not only that, but the very fact that everything is insignificant doesn't mean anything either.

You draw unique experiences into your life in order to learn only one thing: that you were wrong about it

This is what an experience really means. You gain knowledge about falseness of everything.

Question your beliefs. The idea that you are the body with the consciousness is the worst. With the body comes the world, with the world - God, who is supposed to have created the world and thus it starts - fears, depression, stress, a few moments of happiness... and everything else to protect and support "you", frightened out of your wits by monsters of your own making.

I am not here to make things right for you. You have to realize that for yourself.

Not seen due to unforeseen circumstance

I was working in insurance industry in IT department for many years. A friend of mine who is working in a claim department told me a true story. The guy filled out the claim form and reported the accident, he wrote: "invisible car, came from nowhere, hit my car and disappeared.

That was a fucking unforeseen circumstance!

Be yourself

Everyone else is already taken.

Fire is hot, indeed

Any teacher of physics will tell you that fire is the result of combustion, an exothermic reaction, meaning the reaction between elements releases heat as the chemicals change.... and the people will not believe it. It's monkey business out there. People ignore the obvious. They don't want to or they just can't see it. So they will put the finger in...

what we do know?

We don't know that we don't know

There are two quotes I will never forget. The first is a famous quote of General Kutuzov about what he said when he saw Napoleon on a horse... I quote, what he said - Look, there is Napoleon on a horse.

My second favorite quote comes from Donald Rumsfeld, a former United States secretary of defense: " There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know."
