squiggles of ink across paper...
symbols representing distilled thoughts, messages that can bridge the gaps between minds, the chasms between ages past and worlds to come...

I model my life after acid, music, and videogames, and certain beautiful images that play in my head.



Seriously.

Everyone needs something to believe in.

Hopefully one who models their life after a book can actually resonate with one of the characters. And maybe someday, that will help them realize themselves.

As for more general fiction and sci-fi, as opposed to 'new-age' books, I think there is a lot of very inspirational material out there. While I have not 'modelled' my life after any particular book, I have gain great inspiration from many of them on many different levels.

The conceptual sociological ideas of Robert Heinlein are masterful. I often quote Heinlein, becuase he has put concepts on the table in a much more eloquent form than I, and it makes it easier to convey to people where I am coming from by doing so. Tom Robbins, Spider Robinson, Kurt Vonnegut... Hell - Greg Palast, Howard Bloom, Noam Chomsky; I have learned from all of them and have adopted some of their viewpoints as my own.

HOWEVER
<quote>
This phenomenon is predicated on three erroneous beliefs by the reader:
1. I am helpless and / or ignorant.
2. Others (experts) have the "answers".
3. Getting a book published makes one an "expert".
</quote>

I take a bit of offence to this. Because I agree with certain authors, and choose or my own free will and with full mindfullness of the conceptual nature of the argument, does not mean that I am helpless/ignorant or incapable or unwilling to make up my own mind on something. I do not beleive that anyone has anymore access to the 'answers' than I do. But sometimes, people have trained themselves in the usage of our language in such a was as to make their statement of said answers a bit more interesting, useful, and just plain perdy than the ones that I may eloqute.

Well there is actually one book that while reading, I took on a different perspective of life and have been growing ever since. It was merely something of an accelerator pad to what I was feeling already. Most people who read this book will never understand it anyhow cause they are just lazy and don't feel like thinking about the topics the author suggests. If you ever run out of stuff to read, check out Total Freedom by J. Krishnamurti.

Final fantasy was a good video game series. I haven't played the last 3.

I think that ff3 was the best, second was 7.
