Quote:

VUnderground said:
If science and knowledge are
supposedly pursued for its own sake, then how about the
knowledge that life has no discernable purpose, knowledge
that happiness, wonder, and curiosity are based in material
organizations that were likely selected for their evolutionary
survival value, and knowledge that there is no
fundamentally rational basis for choosing life over death.
Nihilism, noted Friedrich Nietzsche, “represents the
ultimate logical conclusion of our great values and
ideals”. This is the bankrupt, philosophical disaster area
the West dwells in. I see no “bottom”, no limits to stop the
freefall into value nothingness. Implicit in nihilism is the
collapse of the entire human cause. The ultimate logical
conclusion of Western values is the rational self-destruction
of the West.
Is this absurd? If this is absurd then it must also be absurd
that I rage at the entire cosmos for having no ultimate
meaning.
But there is no reason to be pessimistic. There is no
justification whatsoever for a negative attitude! There is no
justification whatsoever for a positive attitude! There is no
justification whatsoever for a neutral attitude!
Who knows what will happen with certainty? I could be
strolling down the street, being beautiful, on my way to kill
myself, when suddenly I am run over by a bus.
But wait a minute. Why am I doing this? Ah, yes, now I
remember the punchline:
I’ll try anything once!
There is nothing to take seriously!

-Mitchel Heisman.

If anyone's seen The Grey, the poem stated during the movie is pretty inspiring.

"Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live or die on this day. Live or die on this day."

Give up all questions except one: 'Who am l'? After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The 'I am' is certain. The 'I am this' is not.

Indeed, it is testimony to the insidious effects of happiness on some of the greatest minds in history that some philosophers have argued that the pursuit of happiness is the ultimate aim of all human endeavours.

I'm a poet (yeah, not scared to admit :p), and this may be the best few lines i've ever written. I just managed to channel it somehow, the real cred goes to everyone and everything.

"Everything changes,
but nothing changes at all
As we progress as memory
into the folds of the infinite."

Violence doesn't cure weakness, inner strength and self control does. Training your mind to think categorically. Discarding negative thoughts is vital. Fear is a reaction, courage is a decision. The competency to control ones thoughts is to control ones destiny. Having conviction to yourself is the difference between success and failure. Any circumstances no matter how burdensome your willpower is fundamental to overcoming and attaining anything you desire. Empathy and sensitivity are required in the process of making others better and yourself however if it isnt carefully utilized it will be mistaken for weakness. Seek to interpret others before you expect to be understood. Professionally redirect any conflict you encounter. If that is ineffective then you must apply proper self defense. Never let somebody conquer you, unless they are intellectually superior to you and their intentions are to ameliorate you. Last but not least always live your finest because you don't know when its your time to expire-me

ntelligence is earned from a combination of willpower and experience, I don't believe there is limitations or boundary's on our brains altogether. I'm conceived that the word LIMITATION (when they are referring to humanity's overall awareness capability's) was created to keep many at a disadvantage. Human's always envision that everything has a beginning and an end, a start and a finish, an opening and a closing. Nevertheless could it be that our reasoning is incorrect? After all isn't resolution an unconquerable mental energy that the creator gave to us? Could it be that our aptitude is indefinite? Maybe the only thing that is blocking us is our failure to realize that our limitations are self inflicted. I strongly think that our masterminds are unsurpassable- me
