It's like you took a bottle of ink and you threw it at a wall. Smash! And all that ink spread. And in the middle, it's dense, isn't it? And as it gets out on the edge, the little droplets get finer and finer and make more complicated patterns, see? So in the same way, there was a big bang at the beginning of things and it spread. And you and I, sitting here in this room, as complicated human beings, are way, way out on the fringe of that bang. We are the complicated little patterns on the end of it. Very interesting. But so we define ourselves as being only that. If you think that you are only inside your skin, you define yourself as one very complicated little curlique, way out on the edge of that explosion. Way out in space, and way out in time. Billions of years ago, you were a big bang, but now you're a complicated human being

Yeah it's an alan watts quote. Ignored him for years because I always heard that he was the guy that said "if you get the message hang up the phone" and I sure as hell wasn't about hanging up the phone at the time :lol:

After I smoked DMT for the first time he came up a couple times so I said f it and listened to one of his lectures and regretted not giving him a go earlier.

I guess Bodhi is making sure I'm not plagiarizing Allan Watts :P

Nah, its an original, I haven't read Alan Watts and barely listened to half of one of his talks, but I'm sure we're drinking from the same well.

I found the starting a little boring but it picked up, kinda just read like giant forum post, if Asante posted it here itd be like a tl;dr though, I have to re-read it and absorb it better, I think I just absorbed the parts I already agreed with, like self interst being for the good of everyone, IMO that means if you are not taking care of yourself and working on a better you, you cant take care of others, not self interest in like trying to get the biggest cut of the pie, something I have to work on

also next time I read the book im going to take a pencil and mark in page numbers, incase I want to reference something, I dont know why this book dosnt have page numbers


also, to nitpic, 14-04-2021 is a little off to me, its better then 04-14-2021, but I would have went with 2021-04-14

Got it, and started reading it to my dog.
He liked it.

Looking forward to see what the rest of it is like :smile:

Any post above 2 paragraphs is tl;dr, which is why Twitter is so successful. Social media train people to communicate in headlines and discourage going in-depth.

also next time I read the book




It does encourage to revisit huh?

I wanted to encourage re-reading, and preferably re-reading whole.

Asante, I like your book lol

I doubt most people will read it without their ego involved though which is unfortunate....but if your book is correct then it ultimately does not matter :wonka: is this a nihilist book in disguise? Lol

I'm very glad you like it - and its the ultimate opposite of nihilism. Nihilism excludes until nothing is left, Omnicyclic You includes the totality of everything in the omnicyclic balance of things :heart:

Its written to pose as little threat to the ego as possible, but yes, people will rebel against it, which is very easy to do.

Thing is though, whether you draw it near or push it away, you have done your thing with it and it will have done its thing with you - the result is what should have been.

You're grokking it huh?

If infinity is the same as nothing then isnt it just 2 different types of nihilism?

Its the difference betweehn Nothing and Everything. Tast you are of crucial, infinite value to the universe because you are an essential outcome of it, is the opposite of nihilist thought.

Fair enough. But does anything anyone does still matter in the long run? There is no underlying point?

Everything matters completely for everything else. Complete sacrifice of one for all and all for one. Lives await you beyond any current comprehension.

Its about the journey and every step in it.
