Human  ambition is similar to knife; it stays sharp as long as someone cares about it.


To be capable o…

To be capable of everything and do justice to everything, one certainly does not need less spiritual force and èlan and warmth, but more. What you call passion is not spiritual force, but friction between the soul and the outside world. Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward an isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in the atmosphere. Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen.

Art is the path to human soul!

Art is about our heart, soul, nature and reason. Art is everything around us and Art is us.

The Human Herd

If we observe the development of humanity through ages of human evolution, we are going to notice the same pattern, search for uniqueness. Everyone wants to be different and must be different; this can be easily observed in every written book, conversation, and movie. However, this search for uniqueness is the eternal source of human problems because difference creates instability.

Asymmetric  world is unstable, for the parts of such system are always changing. Think about it, what is harder  to control, herd of sheep or herd of sheep mixed with wolves and elephants. Obviously, the second herd cannot even exist in nature, but if it existed, then it would be impossible to control, since wolves  eat sheep. Now, let’s think about human society: we have social hierarchy and tend to stay in groups. This herd behavior is called the human herd.  Sheep herd is a symmetric system which can be easily controlled by dogs, for their behavior fallows  the same pattern, since they are all the same and respond in the same way to stimuli. On the other hand, human society is an asymmetric system  because it is composed from individuals whose values and interest change unpredictably. Thus, making it really hard to control. However, the difference between individuals creates conflicts and leads to social instability. To eliminate the social conflicts and make society easy to control, government is installed and propaganda of certain values is made.

Different social movements are fighting this system, the most popular of them are Anarchists and Anonymous. These social movements go against the homogenization of culture and society and promote uniqueness and critical thinking. In the same time, they are destabilizing current social system by increasing the gap between humans; thus, creating fertile soil for social conflicts on different levels and destroying current human civilization.

The modern progress of humanity is due to the homogenization of cultures and individuals. For example, the promotion of consumerism among people supplement economical growth of many countries. Also, the promotion of common ideology – democracy and human rights- makes wars less frequent among countries who accepted it. No one would fight with oneself (by this I mean no one  would attack another person whose believes are completely similar to one’s). In addition, this homogenization permits to humans to focus on the specific fields of research making the results faster to achieve, for the task is accomplished faster if there are 20 people working on it, than if there is only one human.

It’s clear that humans have chosen symmetric system which for certain boosts our chances of survivor and progress. However, one question worries me: Is the loss of individuality for the sake of human progress  worth it?

Playing with logic (logical fallacy) #5

Mindless state frees humans from suffering. For example, different forms of drugs and entertainment give humans the possibility to escape from the suffering world by inducing them into mindless state. Therefore, death gives freedom from any suffering and it is equal to permanent drug or entertainment, since death is the constant mindless state.

How publicity works?

All of the marketing strategies are based on the priming effect. Priming effect is the psychological trick which uses human inability to control associative activation: the term used to describe when one idea evokes other associated ideas, launching a domino chain. Also, one must agree, ideas provoke action and change in psychological state. For example, when you think about sex, you will experience specific emotions, and you may take certain actions. To sum up, publicity uses different stimuli to prime (the process of applying priming effect) a consumer to a specific type of emotions and actions.

Multiple Personality Disorder

Emmy award-winning film is a look into how people can develop multiple personalities. This is a look at the amazing capacity of the mind to survive abuse through the splitting off of personalities. Usually taking hold in childhood, Multiple Personality Disorder is thought of as many people’s way of shutting out abuse and trauma from their formative years. During this film we get to see some people who suffer from the disorder, whilst exhibiting their various different personalities.

Multiple realities


        Reality is the system of certain beliefs, physical laws, and other sets of natural or unnatural phenomena. All human beings live in their reality since each person has his own system of beliefs and values. Also, there is a collective reality in which the majority of people live, for, even though, each person lives in his subjective reality, it inevitably interacts with the realities of other people: this happens because all these subjective realities have certain characteristics in common, such as physical laws and cultures. In other words, imagine that you reality is A, and the  reality of someone else is B, than the collective reality between you and this person is (A u B).

So here is my question.

  • Do we have to live in the collective reality and force other people whose realities don’t intersect with ours into accepting our common beliefs and  notions?


  • Do we have to live in the society and  to force other people who don’t want to live in it into accepting it?
