Zarathustra's eye had perceived that a certain youth avoided him.
And as he walked alone one evening over the hills surrounding the town called "The Pied Cow,"
behold, there found he the youth sitting leaning against a tree,
and gazing with wearied look into the valley. Zarathustra thereupon laid hold of the tree
beside which the youth sat, and spake thus:
"If I wished to shake this tree with my hands, I should not be able to do so.
But the wind, which we see not, troubleth and bendeth it as it listeth.
We are sorest bent and troubled by invisible hands."

"But it is the same with man as with the tree.
The more he seeketh to rise into the height and light,
the more vigorously do his roots struggle earthward,
downward, into the dark and deep, into the evil."

"Thou saidst the truth, Zarathustra. I trust myself no longer since I sought to rise into the height,
and nobody trusteth me any longer; how doth that happen?
I change too quickly: my to-day refuteth my yesterday. I often overleap the steps when I clamber;
for so doing, none of the steps pardons me.
When aloft, I find myself always alone. No one speaketh unto me; the frost of solitude maketh me tremble.
What do I seek on the height?
My contempt and my longing increase together; the higher I clamber, the more do I despise him who clambereth.
What doth he seek on the height?"

Here the youth was silent. And Zarathustra contemplated the tree beside which they stood, and spake thus:
"This tree standeth lonely here on the hills; it hath grown up high above man and beast.
And if it wanted to speak, it would have none who could understand it: so high hath it grown.
Now it waiteth and waiteth - for what doth it wait? It dwelleth too close to the seat of the clouds;
it waiteth perhaps for the first lightning?"

Zarathustra smiled, and said: "Many a soul one will never discover, unless one first invent it."

Sometimes all it takes is a good coincidence for spectacular success to be put on proper track. Sometimes all it takes is a lack of constructive coincidence for thorough failure to complete. What is inspired, typically begins spontaneously, comes natural in life, like pulsating flow of oceanic waves approach the shore of destination. To think each car we pass by on the road, driving, could be the cause of our lifechanging experience. To think each person we pass by on the street, walking, could be the most valued or despised figure among those who matter within personal microcosm. Is it all lost, never fulfilled? Perhaps it is better to think it all has happened, depicted with growth of the million branched multiverse tree. What could be, is.

Quasars, the brightest astronomical objects in the universe. They emerge from a galaxy being rapidly consumed by a supermassive black hole, dwelling at the galaxy core. The friction of matter at the event horizon of the black hole gives birth to tremendous amounts of heat. Quasars are hardly any place to live. Our Milky Way Galaxy also does have a supermassive black hole at the centre. Our neighbour black hole is yet dormant. Perhaps yet when the stars align, it shall awaken.

"The sky is a lonely place, an endless, consuming space
Embrace the silent waves of cosmos, as the astral ocean rises in high tide
"

"I am the wolf in the darkest scene, phantasms sweep my role
I am Lucifer, I bring you light and pride
"

"Neither today, nor tomorrow - neither here, nor there
Only the boundless reigns of thought, entrapped in a womb of mind
"

"It lives in the well of time, the ancient dread of nonexistence
Close your eyes, it leads the way, to the treasure throne of memories
"

Just couple of days ago I had quite a true thought - in my sense - about the nature of reality, which brought me some mind solace. Unfortunately, I forgot what it was or what it stated particularly, though the impression I have had still lingers somewhere in the dark corners of my consciousness. What is curious though, with that intellectual thought or without it, life seems to go on, days pass as they used to, reality still pretends to be valid. If it pretends so well, perhaps there is truth to it - that it is real? Perhaps the illusion has eventually taken the place of reality, the illusion somehow has become the final reality, having learned well the ways of the deceased master.

Is there anything else than existence to be ever expected?

It is clear the existence is where I am, the life sprouts where I follow, for where else - to what perceiver - would all this come to happen, imbued by the sight of meaning? If there is more than one, there is then the illuminated and the shaded. The fate of both these are to become the alpha and omega. Only one may linger forever unchanged.



Interesting lecture of Alan Watts, a worthwile spent two hours.

One could think these men argue about the nature of reality they are soon to find out. Right and wrong. Wrong is that instead of arguing what the reality is, they make their own worlds they choose to live in - that they live in what they believe they live in, meaning their worlds are what the worlds of their minds are. Conviction shapes reality. Right about what has been primarily said is that both the men are soon to find out the true nature of reality - that they know it not. They know only themselves, if that could be said at all. In the end, they are equally lost, standing on a ground unknown. Does this ground belong to anyone? The nature of the final place suggests infinity of worlds without ultimate definition other than that it is a place suitable for holding subjects having their own worlds. One could say that the ultimate face of reality is rason. I argue it is also a paradigm. My pillar to this statement is simply the imagination of stepping out of the border of materialism, accepting there are more rules to this game than those which can be measured or described with a language any other than inexplicable intuition, an area housing individual truths most valid but also most absurd.

I was about to write something regarding language as coded information, but as I proceeded, I realized I am drowning; drowning in all those things which are required to be told in order to make the deliverance complete, with the number of sublots growing proportionally to the amount of information already put. I realized this is infinite, fractal process: subplots generating subplots, generating subplots - as everything is interconnected. To be satiated, I would have to speak out the entire universe in one breath, which would take as much effort as creating this universe. On par, putting forth any meaning trapped within a form, is creating a microcosm, an imaginary world in which the topics given are detached from meanings unindicated, thus creating a fantasy world of formal convention, a game of sort, where words play the role of valid forces. Each knowledge deliverance is falsified with the illusion of self-content information detachment, the flawed notion of completeness.

I remember a scene I saw in one Japanese movie. There were two wandering samurai who stopped by in a shelter full of people mainly of lower social status. The samurai started to eat their rations and while eating, were accused by those around, presumably hurt by social difference perceived. The case revolved around the food the samurai had. After hearing the arguments, one of the samurai said: fine, I will eat my rice with respect.

Why did I tell it? It is about understanding and mindfulness at the same time, instead of what would one do in rabid throwing oneself, desperately searching to escape the spider web.
