What I would ask Gabriel García Márquez

I would ask Gabriel García Márquez about how does he feel about the fact that he looks like an Armenian and the Armenian flag is, amusingly, the Colombian flag inverted :O

“The older we get, the more likely we are to experience these moments of ‘cognitive dissonance,’ when self-image and reality contradict each other. Though this conflict is uncomfortable, it is a clear window into the place where we are clinging, and where we need to pay attention. Just as physical pain alerts us to trouble in the body, mental pain alerts us to where we need to be more conscious. In other words, our frustrations, anger, delusions, and so on become our greatest helpers in freeing ourselves from suffering. They point to where the Ego is trapped, and remind us to begin to shift our identity to the Soul level. They show where we are resisting change, where we are time-bound, and where we need to grow beyond past conditioning.”
~ Ram Dass

When we truly hate what’s happening, our instinct is to flee from it like a house on fire. But if we can learn to turn around and enter that fire, to let it burn all our resistance away, then we find ourselves arising from the ashes with a new sense of power and freedom.
~Raphael Cushnir

You realize

You realize how much you know someone when you picture said person in some situation and you can clearly see the expressions on his/her face. And you are sure it's the face they would indeed have if such situation occurred in real life.

I want to be with a person that does not want or feel the need to be with anybody else.

You see, if you realize that you can be at ease completely by yourself, then you'll be at ease with anybody.

I believe that every human in the world has every possible human characteristic available at all times waiting to make it to surface level. Emotional characteristics. Hate, love and the whole spectrum in between. In this way, you, me, and everyone else has every facet of the ugly rainbow of humanity at their disposal; at different levels, because everyone is tuned up differently. When it gets really dangerous is when the Patrick Bateman inside takes consciousness and starts fucking everything up.

We are not perfect machine. Such thing does not exist.

A herd of zebras scattering to avoid a predator will also represent to that predator a confused mass of vertical stripes travelling in multiple directions making it difficult for the predator to track an individual visually as it separates from its herdmates, although biologists have never observed lions appearing confused by zebra stripes.

Funny? In my wikipedia?

Happiness is doing what you think you should be doing, at the time you think you should be doing it.

what the hell, I'm adding quotes by me also.

Suffering is underrated.


"Some years ago I myself made some observations on this aspect of nitrous oxide intoxication, and reported them in print. One conclusion was forced upon my mind at that time, and my impression of its truth has ever since remained unshaken. It is that our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. We may go through life without suspecting their existence; but apply the requisite stimulus, and at a touch they are there in all their completeness, definite types of mentality which probably somewhere have their field of application and adaptation. No account of the universe in its totality can be final which leaves these other forms of consciousness quite discarded. How to regard them is the question—for they are so discontinuous with ordinary consciousness. Yet they may determine attitudes, though they cannot furnish formulas, and open a region, though they fail to give a map. At any rate, they forbid a premature closing of our accounts with reality."

—- William James

Did you know this?

  • Dolphins support sick or injured animals, swimming under them for hours at a time and pushing them to the surface so they can breathe.
  • Wolves and wild dogs bring meat back to members of the pack not present at the kill.
  • Male baboons threaten predators and cover the rear as the troop retreats.
  • Gibbons and chimpanzees with food will, in response to a gesture, share their food with others of the group.
  • Bonobos have been observed aiding injured or handicapped bonobos.
  • According to the research of Gerald Wilkinson, vampire bats have a "buddy system" in which a bat who has had a successful night of feeding will regurgitate blood for its less fortunate companion.
  • In numerous bird species, a breeding pair receives help in raising its young from other "helper" birds, who protect the nest from predators and help to feed the fledglings.
  • Most mammal carnivores like wolves or dogs have a habit of not harming pack members below certain age, of opposite sex or in surrendering position (in case of some animals, the behavior exists within entire species rather than one pack).
  • Vervet Monkeys give alarm calls to warn fellow monkeys of the presence of predators, even though in doing so they attract attention to themselves, increasing their personal chance of being attacked.
  • Walruses have been seen adopting orphans who lost their parents to predators.
