(For a more comprehensive explanation of my thesis, see my “On Separation Of Church And State,” posted to this blog below)

The fauna of human doctrines is inestimably immense, and is given to an equally incalculable sum of peculiar modifications. Thus, neutrality is an impossible standard. It can be expected, then, that the establishment of any institution necessarily imposes the doctrines of some number upon the whole. The moment an institution exists, it does so contrary the tenets of some existing faction, and that with no exception to governance. For the state’s very being contravenes the ideological code of those who would call themselves anarchists, (insofar as the term is applied by the colloquial tongue); and, therefore, it lies beyond man’s capabilities to divorce government from ideology. It is for this reason that the modern interpretation is emphatically flawed, which necessarily confounds Separation of Church and State, with separation of belief and state. The latter is impracticable.

“Upward goeth our course from genera to super-genera. But a horror to us is the degenerating sense, which sayeth: ‘All for myself.’ Upward soareth our sense: thus it is a simile of our body, a simile of an elevation. Such similes of elevations are the names of the virtues.”

- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

“The association of a sewing machine and and an umbrella on a surgical table is a familiar example, which has now become classical, of the phenomenon discovered by the surrealists, that that the association of two (or more) apparently alien elements on a plane alien to both is the most potent ignition of poetry.”

- Max Ernst

“I Stress this point because, in our time, there are millions of people who have lost faith in any kind of religion. Such people do not understand their religion any longer. While life runs smoothly without religion, the loss remains as good as unnoticed. But when suffering comes, it is another matter. That is when people begin to seek a way out and to reflect about the meaning of life and its bewildering and painful experiences. It is significant that the psychological doctor (within my experience) is consulted more by Jews and Protestants than by Catholics. This might be expected, for the Catholic Church still feels responsible for the cura animarum (the care of the soul’s welfare). But in this scientific age, the psychiatrist is apt to be asked the questions that once belonged in the domain of the theologian. People feel that it makes, or would make, a great difference if only they had a positive belief in a meaningful way of life or in God and immortality. The specter of approaching death often gives a powerful incentive to such thoughts. From time immemorial, men have had ideas about a Supreme Being (one or several) and about the Land of the Hereafter. Only today do they think they can do without such ideas.Because we cannot discover God’s throne in the sky with a radiotelescope or establish for certain that a beloved father or mother is still about in a more or less corporeal form, people assume that such ideas are “not true.” I would rather say that they are not “true” enough, for these are conceptions of a kind that have accompanied human life from prehistoric times, and that still break through into consciousness at any provocation.”

“The three sources of our suffering: the superior power of nature, the frailty of our bodies, and the inadequacy of the institutions that regulate people’s relations with one another in the family, the state, and society. Regarding the first two, our judgement cannot vacillate for long: it obliges us to acknowledge these these sources of suffering and submit to the inevitable. We shall never wholly control nature; our constitution itself part of this nature will always remain a transient structure with a limited capacity for adaption and achievement.[…] our attitude to the third source of suffering, the social source, is different. We refuse to recognize it at all; we cannot see why institutions that we ourselves have created should not protect and benefit us all. However, when we consider how unsuccessful we have been at preventing suffering in this very sphere, the suspicion arises that here too an element of unconquerable nature may be at work in the background–this time our own psyche.”

- Sigmund Freud, Civilization And Its Discontents

“Humans should not be judged by their technology, design, intellect, and reason, or how they treat the rich, the powerful, and the privileged, but (instead) how they treat the poor, the condemned, the incarcerated because through that nexus we actually began to understand truly profound things about who we are.”

It is very easy to treat someone of elitist status well, simply because you can sense the opportunities and benefits that can obtained from them. However, when it comes to the most marginalized beings, you may have ill feelings toward them or you may feel that you are better than them, thus it is easy to treat them with neglect. Dont take the easy way out, just to make yourself feel good. 

“We cannot be full, evolved human beings until we care about human’s rights and basic dignity.

“Visions of tech, design, entertainment, and creativity, have to be married with visions of humanity, compassion, and justice.”

I derived all of these quotes from an amazing man named Bryan Stevenson.

Humans need to categorize things fascinate me. Like, taxonomy doesn’t really exist. Its something humans created to feel more comfortable. And keep in mind I love taxonomy and find it fascinating!!! But it doesn’t change that humans made it up. The complexities of the relationships of other animals all throughout their development and evolution is messy and cant possible be fully understood with the restraints we place on it! And I love it. I love that human urge to categorize and understand. Now to be fair ot can also be used to other things that we dont understand, but at it’s best it helps us try to understand things more. How cool is that!!!
