I feel like writing something. Sadly, I have nothing to write about. Thusly I have decided to write about how I have nothing to write about, unfortunately I realized that I now have something to write about.... nothing.

Do you think in pictures or words? Or both? What does that mean? Where do you think the voice in your head comes from? I mean...where does it "sound" like it is comming from? Your brain? Is that just because you know you think with your brain? If so...did Egyptians (who thought that they thought with their hearts) think it was 'sounding' from their general heart area? Is it sort of like how we orientate ourselves with all the information we get (sight, sound, balence (which by the way is determined by hairs in liquid in our inner ear)) Did I just use double parenthisies in a sentance!!! Yayyy!

Okay, that "yayyy!" is an example of how the voice you think with in your head can have different tone qualities (ex: loud, sarcastic, scared, etc...) so it is not just a monotonal (I JUST MADE UP THAT WORD!) (and shouted that sentence in my head) thing that can't change. What does that? Does the thought process happen anywhere else but in the normal speach centers? If so, why??????? Does the brain have an idea of itself? Of course it does, or else I wouldn't be able to think about this... Do animals (other than humans) have this same thing (the ability to think about their own brains/area of reasoning/self) if so, which ones? Has that question already been answered? Because somehow, I think it has....why can't I remember? What is 'remembering'? Is the mechanism different in other species? If so, how? Could I ask any more questions? Of course. But I am tired right now and my brain hates me...Is that even POSSIBLE??? What is self-loathing...is the process different from normal loathing? How??? Why??? What function does it serve? Is it a fluke? Fluke is a funny word. Fluke.

This has been an "Almost-One-AM-on-Easter-Break-Rant" Rant.

EDIT: and I didn't even check my spelling. And I know I misspelled some things. I need to fix them. I won't. It would ruin the "rant-ness" of the rant.

Woah. That was really interesting to read.
I love weird and abstract thoughts like that, the ones that really make you think and reexamine everything from a new, unique perspective. The ones that come with that eerie, weird, yet fascinating feeling.

My cat thinks out loud. It goes, "meow." But my cat also, for some inexplicable reason, has taken up licking our window blinds. Maybe the voice which resides at the base of her tail is telling her to do it. The question is: would it sound like a meow? Or is it Isis, telling her with her heart?

I've also thought of opening a restaurant called, 'N'. I will only serve food which has an 'n' in it's title- Pork 'n' Beans, Pigs 'n' Blankets, Gin 'N' Tonics...

Think it could be pretty trendy.

I love quotes:

“Watch the turtle. He only moves forward by sticking his neck out.” – Lou Gerstner

“Well as giraffes say, you don't get no leaves unless you stick your neck out.” – Sid Waddell

“Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.” - James Bryant Conant

A “collective” mind does not exist. It is merely the sum of endless numbers of individual minds. If we have an endless number of individual minds who are weak, meek, submissive and impotent – who renounce their creative supremacy for the sake of the “whole” and accept humbly that the “whole’s” verdict – we don’t get a collective super-brain. We get only the weak, meek, submissive and impotent collective mind.” – Ayn Rand, The Journals of Ayn Rand

“The larger the group, the more toxic, the more of your beauty as an individual you have to surrender for the sake of group thought. And when you suspend your individual beauty you also give up a lot of your humanity. You will do things in the name of a group that you would never do on your own. Injuring, hurting, killing, drinking are all part of it, because you've lost your identity, because you now owe your allegiance to this thing that's bigger than you are and that controls you.”- George Carlin, Last Words

“We are not supposed to all be the same, feel the same, think the same, and believe the same. The key to continued expansion of our Universe lies in diversity, not in conformity and coercion. Conventionality is the death of creation.” - Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

time travel and three possibilities of it.

2. our time isnt interesting enough for them to come back.
3. it is never released to the general public.(obvs)

Awesome quotes:

“We love showcasing Willa’s style around here because, to us, she is the definition of Tomboy KC. She pretends like she doesn’t have it going on, but the girl has it going on in more ways than one. Equal parts chic, casual, smart, funny, confident and independent, Willa is basically everything we look for in a friend. This girl knows what’s up.” – Katie Cassidy

“I know I’m pumping her tires, but the truth is the truth. I love her guts… and not just because she sometimes reminds me of myself. Willa is a wonderful friend and the epitome of cool. At the end of the day she’s not afraid to just be Willa, and I love that.” – Katie Cassidy

In Norway, I think you can get a fine if you don't name it within 6 months of birth. I don't know if that has changed recently, though.

(well, the time before the ticket arrives might be a bit longer, as at 6 months you will probably get a reminder and maybe a new deadline)

“[The] new world order is a place where men are discriminated against, forced into a hostile environment in school and later in college, and held in contempt by society. Maybe there is no incentive to grow up anymore. It used to be that being a grown-up, responsible man was rewarded with respect, power and deference. Now, not so much.” – Dr. Helen Smith, forensic psychologist

Is perfect and boring synonymous? Would that make a God boring and therefore inferior to humanity? Otherwise, is boredom what humanity should strive for? After all, it is common for people to get bored of something they are proficient in. Perhaps boredom is the point of life, which is depressing and bleak.

Matthew Barnes of the University of Chicago says it’s pricier by a factor of 10 for men to get sex regularly through marriage than to hire a prostitute on a regular basis. Behind the huge gap are the long-term costs associated with marriage—mortgage, college, groceries, vacations, clothes—that don’t apply to a weekly fling with a prostitute.

“There’s more to marriage than just sex, but strictly from an economics standpoint, if the primary reason that men marry is to have a steady outlet for sex, then they’re much better off just having sex with a prostitute, says Barnes, lead author of a study that appears this month in Economics Journal.

I've also written 9 pages of purely my stream of thoughts, if anyone is interested I'll post them. I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone, as I reached this overwhelmingly interesting state where I was acutely aware of the fact that I had decided what I would write three sentences before I wrote it. the thoughts would overlay each other and file out one by one. Fascinating stuff.

"While technically not called The Blue Zen Brain, it does capture the essence of a calm mind. Dominant introverted intuitive personality types, specifically the INFJ and INTJ are the most likely to achieve this state. Not only do they achieve this state when they engage in an area of expertise, they also show this pattern when tackling an unfamiliar, novel problem and or envisioning the future. All areas of the neocortex are called to action to realize an answer. The answer is often complex and difficult to explain." - Ann Holm

Yeah, keep paying all those white women lots of money to make your videos. I also like how you edit out all the rejection scenes.

Want fucking proof? Just walking into a college classroom full of students and ask all the women if they have a boyfriend, husband, significant other, a so, a man, or a someone in their life. Virtually everyone is going to raise their hands if not all of them.

If you lie down, you can disappear altogether.

I want to do something worthwhile. Which makes me think of this:

A rather comical thought... Marriage is like an atom in the Nobel gas phase. It's so happy with it's configuration that it can't afford to take another electron or lose the one it already has...

Marriage is like the fertilization of an egg by a sperm (I know). Once one sperm enters the egg, the millions outside become trivial (even the ones closest to the egg).

PS: On rare occasions, two or more sperms can fertilize an egg at once, that's why we have twins and polygamists!

Oh, and abortion can also be likened to divorce!

Funny that I created a thread just like this and it got closed.

Also, open minds, open hearts; that is my contribution to this thread.

Why do some people who claim to be Intuitives can't differentiate between proximate causes and ultimate causes? Why do they keep focusing on proximate causes? Are they simply just too arrogant that they think they can defeat the all-mighty powerful variable/factor of time?

No you're not. Concepts are often complicated or obscured by nomenclature. Happens to me all the time.

How did the water get on the floor? We can say that:
  1. Nancy spilled it (proximate, or immediate, cause); or
  2. Nancy wasn't paying attention (ultimate cause).

Then we can ask why Nancy wasn't paying attention, and so on until something happens for for no discernible reason (beginning of everything).

Spoiler:
If you want to get really particular:
  1. The water was accelerated toward the floor by unbalanced forces (proximate).
  2. Things are (ultimate).

No really I prefer to be stupid because apparently there are less problems that way.

“…..nobody was ever on my team. And I did this all myself……And I feel like I'm an outsider, and I got here by myself, and I did this all by myself……Rachel never wanted to be my partner……Never once did you say, you know I'm gonna stick it out for your sake, Nick. I had to bring it up. You wanted to do it for Michael. You were on the phone with Michael. You wanted to see Michael. And you know how bad it sucks when you're in the final competition to sing together and you tell me that 'if Michael and I were to be in this competition together, we'd win this for sure.' But I was your partner. You sure did, and so I decided to keep……." – Nick Peterson, winner of the reality show Bachelor Pad 3

If the point can't be seen, does that make it subliminal messaging?

If a tree falls over in someones yard, does it ruin the house?

On a serious note, I have no idea where my life is headed.
