‘materialism’ is not materialistic, and it’s not the same as consumerism (in before language game). Or I should say, it is a symptom of a larger set of problems . When someone wants to buy/collect something, he is merely trying to communicate his mind. When a man wants to buy a car to please his girlfriend, he is asking for love and acceptance, which is anything but material, it is sentimental and emotional. In a way, materialism does not exist.
Random training tip: When you lift, your breathing should sound like a snake hissing…”CHHHHHHHHHHH…..CHHHHEEEEEEEEHHHHHH”. This is the only way to let out air while still maintaining tightness in the posture.
PR: CHHHHHHHHHYEAAAAAA (this you can release more freely and roll over to YEAHHHHHHH to make a definite, assertive statement at the same time. Since you won’t have to stay tight for the next rep).
We try to change the world, and when we can’t we try to change ourselves. But too often the changes happen internally (emotionally), instead of doing something that makes a difference ‘out there’. That’s why being emotional can be sort of a cop out, a cheap way out of situations. When emotions are driven to maximum degrees, we even faint – to cut ourselves from the world completely to become totally unconscious so that we don’t have to deal with our problems.
Consciousness could be the resurrection of the non-spatial properties that was dormant before the Big Bang. Reality was non-spatial before the Big Bang, and with the bang, space came into being. But what about the aspects of reality that were non-spatial? Where could such properties re-emerge after space had been established? Perhaps in the brain itself…Once systems that are complex enough arise (the brain), this could somehow enabled the non-spatial dimension of reality to re-emerge and resurrect into the modern world as consciousness…consciousness could then be a type of immaterial and non-spatial fossil that existed before the Big Bang. If this is the case, then each one of us carries with us, inside our bodies, some type of immaterial substance that is so ancient that it precedes the existence of everything that we can conceive of…and it is indeed with this substance that this thought itself becomes possible.
*Above is an example of what this page would look like if I was a girl. I often think about what my life would be like if I was a girl. And this is my conclusion:
I would work out just as hard, have just as nice of an ass as I do now, and fuck a lot of guys and especially go for the BBCs. I would take pics of myself everyday and saturate my FB fan page with ass and tits and couple them with deep thoughts and philosophical rants about the nature of consciousness, the universe, and evolutionary psychology.
