Social media demeans the experience it hopes to convey. This numbing of experience foreshadows the death of aesthetics.
Social media has fostered our darkest side. When no one is able to grab you by the throat, one feels empowered to say anything and get away with it. Welcome to the world without Alphas.
We beat the truth to death in aspiration.

I have gotten to the point in my life where I prefer to enjoy a moment rather than understand it.
Consciousness is only vaguely aware of the life which touches it.
Consciousness is an after thought.
Concern has an appetite for misfortune.
I’ve always felt uncomfortable with condolence.
I do not want to think about the logistics of life unless there is an element of morality attached.
With perfect balance comes power.
