    The Darkside Of A Shared Reality

    We are rarely satisfied with reality, thus we grab it with both hands and try and mold it with all of our might into the shape of our dreams as if it were made of clay. Like a sculpture we endeavor to spend our days sweat and sleepless nights to bring to life something from deep...

    There are many things I can't seem to

    understand by our own species... The one aspect about us which is floating around in my mind, is, why do we feel the need to do non healthy things? I recently came back from being a somewhat drug addict, who abused alcohol and smoked. I've recently quit every single one of those...

    A suggestion from a Human Resources Manager:

    I read an article about

    Why do people get all offended

    when you joke about rape, religion or murder. Why is there always a taboo. Why would you be so bleak, why do you confuse words with deeds.

    Over in the corner of the bar, I sat, as a spectator. It had been a long day. I had worked a double from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. when the kitchen was closed. Usually I would have worked until closing at midnight, but this was my second double in a row and I was quite exhausted. So...

    We seem to constantly search

    for ourselves as we are always reconditioned into new ways of thinking. We bring on so many different beliefs and personality traits accidentally, that we make confusion of what we really are, inevitable.

    The ego is our external interactions with the
