LTMD – My Philosophy

Update 11.4.2018

This subject continues to be on my mind.  This is important and something I want my descendants to understand so I thought it best to keep these thoughts in one post and perhaps one day bring them into one coherent essay.

The Universe

Everything as we know it began with the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago.  That’s it, that’s all we know and it doesn’t get more complicated than that.  Our reality, our consciousness, everything begins from that point, end of story (for now).

Religion

Two insights about life

Live a magical, inspired life.  At 41 years old my life can be busy.  I have a family with two young boys, a job and my past time is karate.  What takes the most time and energy however are the boys.  There are schedules to be kept, meals, bath times, activities, play, swim lessons, karate and so on.  It is a routine that makes life become a bit of a blur.

Craziness

It is 8:27 PM on Thursday April 26th, 2018.  We had pizza night and I always regret pizza night right after I’ve eaten too many pieces.

I named this post ‘craziness’ due to a couple of thoughts running through my mind.

  1.  Artificial Intelligence

Recently I’ve started doing the jumble in the mornings in The Columbus Dispatch.  This is my hometown newspaper and I used to do the jumble a lot with my study hall teacher Mrs. Hebert.  It started out a little slow but over time I can now figure the daily jumble out pretty quickly although I’m only 50% on the Sunday, harder version.

Zelda – Breath of the Wild

I had always wanted to play Zelda ever since the the very first one came out in 1987.

First there was Atari, which I remember playing from my earliest memories.  One of my favorite memories in fact was going over to my older neighbor Kevin Heinzenberger’s house and we played Joust together in his room on the top floor.  I remember laughing historically as those nights rode around on birds trying not to get hit, they would go so fast!  I laughed so hard tears came out of my eyes and I was very sad when it was time to go back home.  That is a memory that is burned into my brain and I’ll never forget.

Lapham’s Quarterly – Fear

I don’t believe ‘enjoyed’ is the right adjective to describe how I felt reading Lapham’s Quarterly – Fear.  What is the right word if you continually want to do something yet it causes anxiety and fear while you do it?

It is not that reading this edition made me afraid; it is that it called attention to the abundant anxiety in my own life which was exacerbated in reading about the anxiety and fear of others in this edition.
