Is the world obscene?
    #3356102 - 11/13/04 04:39 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Maybe I just feel like this because I'm a Victorian, but I seem to get the sense that so much of our lives is vulgar. Like there is the this pure, beautiful clarity and peace that is at the center of the universe, but everything and everyone around is totally obscene. Not just consumer culture or materialism, but society itself: parties, alcohol, groups, cliques, langauge, TV, music, etc. Ok well maybe I'm just a nazi.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Instead of seeing the chaos as obscene, try seeing it as a kaleidoscope of experience, and you'll see the beauty of free will and the human culture.

The world has no intrinsic value one way or another. You give it that value. The world seems obscene to you because you make it so.

i hate to use this line but "it depends how you define" ______ obscene.

and is obscene bad?

personally as far as i can tell there is EXACTLY as much disgusting evil shit in this world as their is glorious sublime beauty,. it is perfectly balanced and you could spend your entire life looking at the uglyness or the beauty and still not see the tiniest fraction of what is.
