Its unbelievable how many people straight up refuse to engage with media/writings that they dont agree with. People rejecting books by conservative authors simply because “well I dont want to be indoctrinated by them” is really telling as to what kind of personality they have. How can you be so weak-willed that you cant rationalise your own beliefs when confronted with something you disagree with? I’ve read Jordan Peterson, Nietzche and hell, even Julius Evola yet I still have the ability to disagree with their views and evaluate them on my own. If you’re scared your politics will change with every book you read, thats an issue with you and not the content you are consuming.

Therapists place a far higher value than patients on interpretation and insight. We therapists grossly overvalue the content of the intellectual treasure hunt... I do not mean that the intellectual venture is not important. Indeed it is, but not for the reasons we usually think. We crave the comfort of absolute truth because we cannot bear the desolation of a purely capricious existence. As Nietzsche put it, “Truth is an illusion without which a certain species could not survive.” Anointed, as we are, with an inbuilt solution-seeking, gestalt-filling need, we cling tenaciously to the belief that explanation, some explanation, is possible. It makes things bearable, it anoints us with a sense of control and mastery... Patients bask in the attention paid to the most minute details of their life, and the therapist is entranced by the process of solving the riddle of a life. The beauty of it is that it keeps patient and therapist tightly connected while the real agent of change—the therapeutic relationship—is germinating... At the most fundamental level the relationship between insight and change remains an enigma. Though we take for granted that insight leads to change, by no means is that sequence established empirically. In fact there are experienced, thoughtful analysts who have raised the possibility of a reversed sequence—that is, that insight follows change rather than precedes it. And, finally, bear in mind Nietzsche’s dictum: “There is no truth, there is only interpretation.” Hence, even if we do offer some elegantly packaged insight of extraordinary we must realize it is a construct, an explanation, not the explanation.

"There are no facts, only interpretations."
-Friedrich Nietzsche
"According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves."
"If women are expected to do the same work as men, we must teach them the same things."
"No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness."
"Life is a fragment, a moment between two eternities."
-William Ellery Channing

Vintage bagels this week, and its one of my favorites! Nihilist fish lived long before my comic was a thing. I've got sketches of him everywhere in old notebooks. I think he was born from the pain of having to take about three extra philosophy classes than normal for my double major.
An addendum, I do actually quite like philosophy when it's taught in an engaging way. In many of my classes dear reader, it was not.

Me he completado a mí mismo, ya conocí todo de mí, he cruzado por todas las facetas por la que el hombre puede cruzar, estoy completo y vacío al mismo tiempo.
Ya pude padecer todo lo que la mente puede soportar, ahora soy más roca que hombre, y será imposible que otra existencia pueda romperme o volverme frágil.
Soy la cima que no puede ser tocada, estoy a la par de Dios y en mi caso es aún mejor, porque mi existencia no surgió de un cuento de hadas.

Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster... for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you. - Friedrich Nietzsche (paraphrased)

Não querer nada de diferente, nem para frente, nem para trás, por toda a eternidade. Não apenas suportar aquilo que é necessário, muito menos dissimulá-lo, mas sim amá-lo..
