Trolley Problem and the Hegelian Dialectic

Did anybody ever notice that the great Trolley Problem about ethics is a Hegelian Dialectic practice to trap you into 1 result (blood on your hands) given in the form of 2 options (switch tracks or inaction)?  The whole premise of the Trolley Problem is that you keep ending up with only 2 bad choices given to you by tenacious philosophers who will not allow more than the 2 given choices.  They want you to say that you will choose one of the choices they presented to you.  There is obviously intent going on here, though nobody would want to admit that.  They want you to declare your choice between the 2 while convincing you there are no other options.  They want so bad to hear you say it.  Why?

Wake up.

A Seed is Real

Any seed that has the potential to grow

is as real as you and I.

In My Head

Everything circles back into itself.

There is nothing to know that will last to know it.

The observer is transforming while watching the subject transform.

The world changed and you thought it was you.

You changed and you thought it was the world.

Even the most profound revelation returns to nothing with a transformed perspective.

The more intense we feel something, the more vivid we think we see it, but we are consumed.

Choose any forces to assist you, but they need something back from you.

The unnatural is actually the hyper-natural.

My answers must be delusional, while my questions must be trying not to be delusional.

There is no knowing.  All we can own is the will to play a part in this grand story.

If it were all easy

If it were all easy

it would have only to give

what was sought

Finally…

We can find what we weren’t looking for

A Thought on Vegan Morality

I think people do not realize that plants are living creatures too. It probably hurts like hell to be pruned and harvested and consumed. Nature is just that way. Animals eat other animals alive in a very vicious process. Plants choke each other out and fight for sun and nutrients. We humans have these unrealistic ideals because nature has become foreign to us and we think we can make everything a fair system according to every living thing. But we can’t. There are processes that are necessary to life. The best thing we can do is embrace the self evident and find meaning to it all.

The Cost of Clarity

At some point, if I want clarity, I have to set aside what I think should be right and wrong and allow the self evident to penetrate my conditioned mind.

The Unnoticeably Strange Present

We continue to dig for information and knowledge and answers and other bullshit like that.

We continue to read line by line as if we missed some great message that should be there.

All this effort and the result is a numbing of sensitivity to direct perception.

At any point in life we may lose grip of all the bullshit and realize how strange the present moment is.

It can sneak up and leave reality exposed naked with all of the parts we try not to see.

There is a big process going on and our little stupid words like; morality, love, evil, God, free will, etc. cannot begin to touch it.  It does not matter if we like it or think it is right or wrong.  We can decorate the process and see what makes us more comfortable, but the process will continue and the show must go on!  The persistent result is creative expression, which requires destruction, and contains more than a clever message to put into words.  If you can feel life at its greatest magnitude with unwavering fearless strength, then you have conquered all you have to conquer.
