Relentless Results Based Feedback Loops

This has been one of the essential conceptual tools that has delivered me out of my bumbling, semi-aimless, naval-gazing, ineffective adolescence into my present state as a somewhat put-together, productive member of the community; Relentless Results Based Feedback...

The Infinite – LEGACY

Human life. It's made out to be such a tradgedy. So full of activity, go here, go there accomplish this and that. I look around, see people hurrying every which way, try to fulfill the plans of the day. What's it all for? What's the point? We are born, we play, we...

A Consequentialist Ethical System – LEGACY

A Consequentialist Ethical System – LEGACY

My ideas have been coming together as a system nicely, especially in the areas of ethics and politics, although more so in the former. A while ago I mentioned the problems with creating a unified and comprehensive theory, and with those still in mind I'm going to go...

Death, Neutrality, and Ethics – LEGACY

I know it's been quite a while since I've had a journal entry, but I have been writing. I've just been letting it all build up with the intent of making one big post. Well, I still haven't written all I had planned to put into this one, but it's already quite long, so...

Hatred and Compassion – LEGACY

Today, we the so called "free world" are in conflict with the terrorists. It may seem like a new battle but in it's essence it has been with us all throughout time. We have always had rivaling factions with differing interests or ideologies; the Axis and Allied...

Poetry This Day – LEGACY

I've always had difficulty understanding poetry. But lately I'm finally starting to get it. It may be due to my persistence in reading it despite not understanding. I've been reading a lot of Emerson, which is heavily poetic speech. It seems that I have to be in a...

Who am I – LEGACY

Who am I? What am I in this universe for; this state somewhere between nonexistence and eternity? Now more than I can remember these questions are posing themselves to me in a most aggressive manner. Certainly they are not in the form of a question as I have seemed to...

The Adventure of the Flat Tire – LEGACY

Today was quite an adventure. Well, according to one view, every day is an adventure, but today was particularly adventuresome. It began as most normal days begin; I woke up and prepared myself for the college classes and work ahead of me. Whenever I have time, as I...

An Evening Stroll – LEGACY

Walking along the shore of the pond, many thoughts were turning and tumbling in my head. Thoughts of recent events in my life, thoughts of people and places, and things and ideas. A couple of flies were pestering me as I walked along. I took a seat on a bench...

Reflections on Myself – LEGACY

I feel I've painted a deceptively positive view of my life as of late in the last entry so I figure I'll cover the other side of things. I apologize in advance if this sounds like a bunch of whining, I know that's the thing I hate most when reading other's writings....

Changes a brewin – LEGACY

I haven't written in quite a while so I suppose I'll put down a few words regarding events as of late for my own historical records (as if any of this is relevant). Well one thing is I've been very busy with finishing up the college semester, moving out of the dorm...

Spring Retreat – LEGACY

At the beginning of spring break a fortunate situation fell into my lap. It just so happened that at the same time I was moving back home, my parents were gone on a skiing trip. There were several days during which I had the house to myself along with the cat before I...

A Journey and Discussion – LEGACY

This evening as I left work I noticed that the sun was casting an astonishing light across the land as it neared the horizon. I had a couple of hours open so I made it a point to eat dinner and walk to a favorite beach nearby to watch the sunset. Through the duration...

Faith Illuminates Truth? -LEGACY

In my search for truth, I have been told by some believers that having a relationship is necessary to lead someone to a fuller understanding of the truth. In other words believing in something (ex: God, Jesus) enables one to understand why it's worth believing, so...

Determinism vs. Voluntarism -LEGACY

Determinism would seem to imply some grand design, thus a grand designer, i.e.; God. However i think there are two different kinds of determinism. When I'm talking about determinism, I'm not referring to anything like "fate" or "destiny." Nor that there are certain...

Walking – LEGACY

I've replaced my occasional parkour runs with longer walks alone at night. This was partly born out of necessity since it's winter. But also I haven't felt the surplus of energy that I used to feel. Though that also may be a result of the season, I would not be...

Comfortably Numb – LEGACY

I have discovered a very enjoyable thing to do when I am snowboarding at night. This hill isn't a mountain, but it does rise way above the surrounding features, providing a very nice view from the top. Around 6 or 6:30 the sun sets, so I keep an eye on it while doing...

My Perspective – LEGACY

1. Being human We are all human. We are undoubtedly the most advanced species at least in the solar system, if not the galaxy. Yet, as advanced and different from the other animals we are, we must not forget that we are animals ourselves. Our uncles and cousins are...

Details – LEGACY

Biases and Certainty – LEGACY

On my own pursuit of Truth, I have a problem I must constantly grapple with. My friend and I agreed that on the search, objectivity is an ideal, or at least as to be as objective as a human can be. This has created a conflict for me because of my bias. I was raised to...

The Sea of Potential Truths – LEGACY

In a discussion tonight, my friend and I covered several topics that were very enjoyable and thought provoking. We agreed on some topics and some we just couldn't agree on despite continuous reiteration. My explanation of his beliefs will unavoidably be less...

Life and Chairs – LEGACY

Lately I've been working on my own theory of government. It's very much unfinished and I still have a lot of questions, so it probably won't be done any time soon. I did enjoy working on it though, and thinking things through. Just by researching and thinking about it...

Qualities of Character – LEGACY

I've been trying to develop my own style. Not just in my writing, but also in everyday life; what you might call personality or character. At this point I do possess many of the characteristics I favor, but some others I'm lacking in. Likewise, some I feel I have an...

What Levi’s up to – LEGACY

The Incomprehensible Now – LEGACY

Ethics and Law – LEGACY

I try not to do too much contemplating about the "perfect" society or "ideal" world, but of course without goals and ideals, how would we know which direction to work towards? Many observe the sad state of morality in our modern times. It seems that people aren't...

No Self – LEGACY

I've come to the realization, be it acurate or not, that the self is an illusion in our mind. Who we are, which is usually understood to mean the culmination of our thoughts, actions, beliefs, personality, physical body, and traits, doesn't really exist as a complete...
