EDIT : Yea, on hindsight, this was one of my more trippy posts. It's kind of hard to understand and I lost even myself in some parts. But if you get what I'm trying to say, kudos. Give yourself a cookie in the tagboard and tell me what you think :D
So yea, was stalking one of kelly friends and read her post about the System and all that.
This is how I see it, kay? There is no way you're ever gonna be right. Every time you think you've got life all figured out, life is just gonna throw something at you and turn around and give you a troll face and you're left with your worldview all fucked up again. And that's the only thing you can ever be sure about. So why bother with all the drama and emoness and crap?
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants
Why do people choose time and again to be the metaphorical giants? You are not the first to experience what you're feeling now, despite what you may believe. Why not look further, beyond what others may have seen by building on top of them? Why must you waste away your life so that you'll just be yet another giant, reaching the same height as everybody else, perhaps even lower, before your life ends. Stand on the shoulders of those who've already gone through life and see beyond what they have seen. You are young, don't spend it in the same way that the youth before you did, because look at them now.And believe it or not, you're going to end up just like them like they did the generation before and the one before that... Because, well, you know, refer to the above^
Challenge your beliefs, don't wait for somebody else to do it for you. And if somebody's already done something, learn from them. If it works in science/math/history/language, it'll probably work for you. Another quote to end the post:
Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them.
- George Santayana
