That strange malaise:
to think we are victims of democracy.

[9-17]

We're not so much privileged as indulged.

[ttdnlutihiml]
was moonlight,
(though sunlight did.)

The drama gets in the way of reporting on and fixing real problems because they do not surface.

[8-26]

The new name of my philosophy book:
Hmmmmm

[8-25]

All we can do is misunderstand.
And understand that we misunderstand
even as we most likely misunderstand our misunderstanding.

Telling people how to do philosophy is like telling people how to write great poems.

[8-22]

These days the answers to most questions can be found on the Internet,

After a certain age you can no longer be killed
no longer die,
as you have already been.
How would you grade your self?

what color my parachute is,
I also do not know
who I am.

there can be no rejection.

[7-27]

I gather my thoughts like in Pokemon Go.

[7-26]

You can talk about reality all you want
as long as you don't really think
you are actually talking about reality.

How should we understand what we say about the world?

[7-22]
