Philosophy

This is a place where we can learn about ourselves and figure out what ideals we want to incorporate into our lives. Most of us stumble blindly through life shifting from one perspective to another with little thought as to why. A firm ideological foundation can solve many of our problems.

You Are a Business, Not an Employee

Perhaps the most insidious concept that public education has convinced us to accept is the idea that we gain some amount of safety and security by becoming a part of large organizations. It makes a lot of sense on the surface because it seems to naturally follow that when we band together in common cause…More

The Pervasive Indoctrination of Systems

I’ve spent most of my life in one system or another. As a child, I was subjected to the tacitly nationalized public school system, indoctrinated in the ways of putting the group before myself and taught that conforming to the rules is more important than valuing our freedom. When I spent more than a decade…More

Homework is a Ridiculous Concept

School was never something I enjoyed. There were parts of it that were somewhat intriguing, but for the most part I spent my youth yearning to be free of the classroom so I could pursue more interesting endeavors. To be honest, in those days those pursuits were mostly video games, but these days I tend…More

Be a Man

I’ve mentioned once or twice in the past that I am a 90’s kid, having grown up during the era when the generations switch from “Generation X” to “Millenial”. Depending on which definition you choose, I’m either at the very tail end of Gen X or the very start of the millenial generation. As such,…More

Cycles and Repetitions

The title of this post is somewhat cryptic, but really the subject isn’t particularly complicated or mysterious. I simply like to be a bit vague with the labels for these articles to encourage people to have a look and maybe learn something they didn’t know or just didn’t think about the way that I do.…More

The Problem with Lying

Everybody lies. There isn’t a person reading this article that hasn’t told a multitude of lies over the course of their life. Even little children, who we see as the most innocent amongst us, tell all kinds of lies as a matter of course, whether to get what they want or simply to get out…More

Personal Post: Space

I was struggling to come up with a topic for today’s article, so I figured I’d go back to one of the semi-series of articles I started in the form of personal posts that talk about something about me or one of my interests. There is quite a long list of randomly different things that…More

Sometimes You Can Be “Too Efficient”

So I’m going to tell a real life story for this post. I woke up this morning to find my trailer floor covered with water. This wasn’t as surprising as most people would find it, as I’ve had some problems with leaking in the past. As I continued to investigate, however, it turned out that…More

Life as a Lazy Person in a Work Hard World

One of the principles I’ve wanted to maintain on this blog is to provide an unfiltered view of the world from my own perspective in the hope that being real with my readers will cause what I have to say to resonate with people. It’s easy to get up on a platform such as this…More

When Science Gets It Wrong

As we move forward in our push to ever greater heights of scientific achievement, it is easy to assume that what we are told is the truth and that we can count on the people who are coming up with all the new theories and developments that make our lives better. We trust that they…More
