Day 21

Yesterday, B called to tell me that she was in the hospital. This morning I heard from J that W is in the hospital. B and W were both born in the Year of Dragon. Does it mean that dragon people will have bad luck this year? Or has something gong wrong with them over a long period of time, and what’s happening to them now is the result of their ignorance? I hope they will get well soon.


Day 21

The idea that Nicholas talked about seems to be true: everything is energy. Some philosophers express their understanding of energy in philosophical language.

Logic is not reality, but our understanding of reality, whereas energy is a phenomenon. In terms of energy, what would a philosophy proposition look like?

For example, Hobbes talked about having a central power is necessary to keep a group in order. It’s the same idea of spinning a plate with a stick in physics.

Romantic attractions are real, but they are only attractions. Romantic feelings make people feel empowered, that’s why people fall in love and try to stay in love.

Writing keeps me centered, and I find answers to my questions from writing. Writing is my way to gain access to my unconscious, my source of energy.

Now I have started to read Kant, I wonder why Kant wrote the way he did. Why would someone write in a way that a reader has to struggle to understand an important message?
