Farmer and Snake

In Traditional Chinese parables, there is a story about a farmer and a snake:

Long time ago, in a frosting winter, an old man was pacing slowly on frozen water for home.

Some time later, he saw a strange stick lying on the ground. Despite the heavy snow splashing into his face, he went forth and found out the strange twisted stick was not a stick at all, but a frozen snake.

The farmer braced the snake into his chest, and kept on heading his way home. ...READ MORE

Independence, Patriarchy and Society

Patriarchy stems from male independence, an indivisible relationship.

In society, what does independence consist of?

  • Physical independence: Physical independence is sheer force, sheer physical power. The stronger your body is, the more power you can amass in order to assert rules over others.
  • Wealth independence: Wealth independence is free from poverty, free from lack of materials. Or very much a resource gatherer. The resources boost your other independences.
  • Love independence: Be able to stand on your toes and free to choose partners. One is able to have choices, and in no lack of love from others. One is cherished, with a stable/level mind.
  • Socioeconomic independence: A modern term combined with previous two independences, plus a social repute. Free from opinions, free from bad words, free from bad/lower social rungs that linger at higher social rungs.
  • Wisdom independence: Being agile in mind fields, one is able to solve problems. And scale himself at a vantage point in order to outmaneuver others.

One shall keep himself safe from harm. One shall feed himself enough to survive. One shall have partners yet not clinging on them. One shall be respectable. One shall have set of skills to outmaneuver others.

All these things can be achieved by men, and men alone. Women certainly have a hard time on achieving all these independences all by “herselves”. ...READ MORE

Hoax

Suppose your senses are lying to you, which makes all of your perceptions none other than illusions.

If I am, in a simulation machine, which all of my senses are artificially simulated, the senses are so real I can’t tell whether I am in a simulation machine.

If I am indeed in a simulation machine, how come I never wake up once to know the real world? The hypothesis is that I live inside a simulation machine, the opposition is that I never wake up to know I live inside a simulation machine. ...READ MORE

Chasing the Truth

In reality, while it may seem truthless, as we get various different sources of information, truth is not reflected by human emotions.

That said, in order to obtain truth, human perceptions

Reality is truthless.

Truth is based on perceptions. Whatever you believe is true is true.

It seems, truth is limited to our senses.

What if, truth is not based on senses? Truth is not based on pure perceptions of human organs? Human emotions are affecting how one perceives truth. ...READ MORE

Pain Philosophy

I want to add something on Nietzsche’s pain theory.

There is a premise of Nietzsche’s pain theory, men are subjected to pain. Pain modifies men’s behaviors.

My premise is that men are inclined to pleasure.

Because men are inclined to pleasure, so they avoid pain. By avoiding pain, pleasing themselves becomes the subconscious motive behind most of their actions.

This also allures selfishness, which is how genuinely people work. ...READ MORE

On Abortion

Pro-life.

Life is sacred and that is non-negotiable.

I oppose any form of abortion for the sake of a woman’s convenience. If pregnancy is merely an inconvenience for a woman, she should not have the child at first place.

Libertarianism seems disturbing sometimes. It excessively emphasizes on self-possession, that one should always have control over oneself, no other can intervene. This mindset is where the far-left coming from. It’s toxic. ...READ MORE

You Shall Not Fear Death

What is life? Again?

Life is preserving information, that information can become legacy, lasts forever.

In the millions years of us human kind evolving and developing, we pass down the flame of knowledge so that we create, and transform our own lives into something marvelous, than the previous ones.

As individuals, we are each merely a human being that is vulnerable to many things. Each one of us is fragile, weak, physically. We can’t stop one person form dying if he or she suffers a severe disease, a bullet in the head, a lung depravation or a mental breakdown. ...READ MORE
