Point is..I've lost my purpose. There is nothing left to do.

I can choose to help rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, or I can sit here while it sinks.

Either way it is going down.

Re: Mad World
Yes to Life, in Spite of Everything: Viktor Frankl’s Lost Lectures on Moving Beyond Optimism and Pessimism to Find the Deepest Source of Meaning


What remained was the individual person, the human being — and nothing else. Everything had fallen away from him during those years: money, power, fame; nothing was certain for him anymore: not life, not health, not happiness; all had been called into question for him: vanity, ambition, relationships. Everything was reduced to bare existence. Burnt through with pain, everything that was not essential was melted down — the human being reduced to what he was in the last analysis: either a member of the masses, therefore no one real, so really no one, the anonymous one, a nameless thing (!), that “he” had now become, just a prisoner number; or else he melted right down to his essential self.
~Frankl

Frankl then turns to the question of finding a sense of meaning when the world gives us ample reasons to view life as meaningless — the question of “continuing to live despite persistent world-weariness.”

Writing in the post-war pre-dawn of the golden age of consumerism, which has built a global economy by continually robbing us of the sense of meaning and selling it back to us at the price of the product, Frankl first dismantles the notion that meaning is to be found in the pursuit and acquisition of various pleasures.

Re: Mad World
Frankl begins by considering the question of whether life is worth living through the central fact of human dignity. Noting how gravely the Holocaust disillusioned humanity with itself, he cautions against the defeatist “end-of-the-world” mindset with which many responded to this disillusionment, but cautions equally against the “blithe optimism” of previous, more naïve eras that had not yet faced this gruesome civilizational mirror reflecting what human beings are capable of doing to one another.

Both dispositions, he argues, stem from nihilism. In consonance with his colleague and contemporary Erich Fromm’s insistence that we can only transcend the shared laziness of optimism and pessimism through rational faith in the human spirit, Frankl writes:

"We cannot move toward any spiritual reconstruction with a sense of fatalism such as this."

Re: Mad World
It really isn't that bad for me..atm.

What is bad is how I'll have to watch others suffer because they didn't listen. Hence, Cassandra's Curse.

I've never been one to find solace in schadenfreude. As being right..isn't what I want. I want to avoid being right. Precognition thing. It gives me a sense that the future is not set.


With that said..I don't think it is an accident I stumbled on Frankl today.

He's making me feel like a real ass..which is fine..I probably needed that.

My first nephew was born 1 month after 9/11/01.

He is a very tall, very accomplished scholar, athlete and musician. This is was his senior year in high school.

He has a full-ride scholarship for next fall to university.


We received his graduation announcement in the mail, yesterday. It is hanging on the fridge with a magnet. HIs smiling face staring back at me every time I go to the fridge.

Being school was canceled several weeks back..and I can't help but feel sorrow for him..ending his senior year, without his peers, without a prom, without yearbook signing, without a commencement ceremony..and facing this uncertain future.

I graduated from university when he was 6 months old..and like him entered an uncertain world..rocked by 9/11 less than year passed. It hasn't been easy..but then I'm not sure it ever is.


But here we are..18 years later..and I am raging at this future he is receiving.

I don't know who or what to direct it at. No where/way to channel it..

What I do know..is the youth will write the history of what goes down over the next 2 years. This world belongs to them.

Everyone else..is on borrowed time.

I used to get those morning star chicken 'pucks' they were spicy and I would chop it up over a salad. It was good. I guess that was probably made of soy all I remember it saying was something plant-based so maybe it wasn't soy.

I mean the pie sounded good for a minute. For mother's day we had this chocolate pie that came from the frozen section at the grocery. Had the chocolate crust. It was pretty good. Rich but good. Also if you're still craving something sweet..you might like this. Sweet salty combo.

Judas Goat

A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination.

In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and onto trucks. They have fallen out of use in recent times, but can still be found in various smaller slaughterhouses in some parts of the world, as well as conservation projects.

Cattle herders may use a Judas steer to serve the same purpose as a Judas goat. The technique, and the term, originated from cattle drives in the United States in the 1800s.
