    It is bothersome that I find myself in this

    spot, balanced on the precipice of my own tired delusions. The serenity of this rare peace is broken by the flashes of emotion that tempt to stir. It’s been over a year. Yet despite the urge to spiral down that familiar path of temporary insanity I see beyond the present...

    Pleasure and pain are the two ends of the same

    road. Desirable things start with pleasure and end with pain. Undesirable things start with pain and end with pleasure.

    A Philosophy Of Life

    A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was...

    "What if..." followed by a cluelessly inspired

    Philip of Macedonia raised his son among lions

    to instill fearlessness in him. He also tried to impale him with a spear. Would the ends justify the means? History now remembers that boy as Alexander the Great.

    I love philosophy, but it's a recent discovery

    for me. I don't know what I like about it, maybe its the fact that you are trying to answer questions that don't really have an answer or have an open answer as I like to think of it. It's all about seeing different sides of the question and making valid points to make the...

    No To Paradox. . . Yes To Musings.

    Philosophy could be entertaining. It gives you a free pass to be an observer and to be more of a humorist with a bit of sarcasms keeping up with life's turns, and ups and downs. It keeps your mind away from being idle, and sometimes it lets you act from what is expected or what...
