Hi, I’m talking to myself in case you didn’t notice. I was thinking about my default state of being. The core that defines me without context. You could say: Everything happens in context. Yes, but still. Just very metaphysically, what is your core, what is my core?
I found out that without having an objective or target in the back of my head making me move I’m selfish and lazy. And now I wonder a) who would also say (admit) that and b) should I start worrying?
You’re selfish because the only important thing is you when you are aimless. You’re in the center of your own attention.
You’re lazy because doing things for yourself bores you. If there’s nobody to share with, there’s nothing to care about, except your own existence but what’s the value of my existence anyway?
So, when the caring vanishes because you need at least two to care, then you become lazy and the caring turns into vanity, or zero. Caring = Zero. Or: var caring = 0.
All that is left then is your selfishness, you caring about your self, being in the center of self-attention. And since you only care when you share this caring also vanishes.
This means in conclusion that your caring for yourself vanishes. Your selfishness vanishes, becomes zero. Turns into vanity. Selfishness = Zero. Or. var selfishness= 0.
That’s then your core that got missing. And without core, no other elements, like with atoms. You need a core. And I just lost it, metaphysically of course. Or not?
The take-away from today: Always have a target in life. If not, you’ll lose your core. With no core, no existence. You have no target, you’ll stop existing. Target is the essence of life. Target to live!
