The Life Dialectic 

Philosophy; it doesn’t have all answers.  In fact it doesn’t have any answers.  I mean depending on our interpretation of truth what even is an answer?  An act of mental masturbation by some, an endless maze to others – philosophy’s ‘answer’ at least from my perspective is the cognitive equipment to think, see and develop […]

Some Automatic Writing
