The Happiness of Contentment

Less bright and loud
More strong and deep
Neither open nor hidden
There lingering
A happiness
Me contented

Discussing Talk

Though I would talk with you
You’d rather discuss with me
I want to talk to you
Discusing to you is impossible

Listen,
I’m talking
You talk back
We’re talkimg to each other

I’m talking
you heard me
and responded
I heard you

It was nice discussion

What’s the algorithm behind the behaviour

Algorithms are data processors
If the data is bad: garbage out
If the algorithm is bad: garbage out

Behaviour is the result of an algorithm
It takes in data and information
And produces garbage or wisdom

What’s the algorithm behind the behaviour

The teacher opens the door

The teacher opens the door
Interesting that the door is open
Do I like the teacher, or not
The presentation and delivery
What a door
And the door frame
Okay, let’s enter
But through another door

That’s what it feels like sometimes, some days, with my students. As it appears, getting us to ‘know’ requires that we go through several other rooms in class (or life) that we find more interesting or easier to enter into—whether or not directly relevant to the teacher’s teaching end. All in order for us to develop the mind that finally enters the room the teacher meant for us to enter from the beginning.

The gods of fashion

The gods of fashion speak every season.
They tell us what to wear and sometimes what not.
They help us craft artificial self-esteem:
we feel cool with ourselves
because we’re wearing that that they’ve prescribed for the day.
Declaring what to trend,
they ask us to sync with what’s trending
— feeding their fame and fortune.
But we have taken the red pill.

I still like my two-button, and not overly fitted, suits.
That one-button suits, with fitted fitting, are in now, will soon pass.
And for what? I would not try to tell.
We leave that for the gods of fashion.

Because their fashions are fickle, are the gods not fickle.
Trusted to be arbiters of style,
we give them power:
if we have to bother about how to wear ourselves
as they describe for winter, fall, spring, or summer.

You can’t beat the decent and the sensible, can you.
Principles the gods of fashion cannot overrule, by principle.
Some follow these, others try to redefine the fine.
Many claim a variable morality;
variable by the seasons, ‘artists’ whims, and volitional caprices.

Beauty makes sense.
And crazy isn’t beautiful.
It can’t be, by design.

The Democrats are good but…

The Democrats are openminded. And that’s good. But they’ve been so openminded that they’ve lost their brains enough times to cause serious concerns about their sanity and America’s future.

That’s why the Republicans might have the better following by truly free thinkers. And why they’re probably better for the United States in the long run. The republicans have their own madness, looking for that good place only found in God: life, liberty, and (the pursuit of) happiness. Democrats as the opposition sounds just right for them today.

When you see democrats act undemocratic, uncharacteristically unfriendly, near foolishly, and according to some mundane philosophy and a hatred of one. Should one not also again fear their reign?

If you can give solid foundations to at least one of these statements, then you must have a case to vote against.

Re-evaluate

Change your name

‘I love you’ rings in my head

Thinking of how many times I’ve heard them

Those words, they appear in me now and again

Whether you’re here or some where

‘I love you,’ rings in my head
