The butterfly [Jul. 3rd, 2004|11:35 am]
Lone Mantis of the Apocalypse!!!
It doesn't matter whether you're dreaming of being a butterfly or the butterfly is dreaming of being you

"One day about sunset,Zhuangzi dozed off and dreamed that he turned into a butterfly.
He flapped his wings, and sure enough he was a butterfly...
What a joyful feeling as he fluttered about, he completely forgot that he was Zhuangzi.
Soon though, he realized that the proud butterfly was really Zhuangzi who dreamed he was a butterfly,
or was it a butterfly who dreamed he was Zhuangzi!
Maybe Zhuangzi was the butterfly, and maybe the butterfly was Zhuangzi?"
-Zhuangzi, 3rd Centry B.C. Chiina

So its my first week home. Today I had my first slurpee of the summer, and the radio was talking about Nick Pap Georgio, a radio personality. It reminded me of a story a past ex told me about how she made out with him and was really poor, haha. I had an interesting conversation lat night, and I have to say i am a bit besides myself. I will refrain from going into details cuz its no one elses business, heh. I went to the comic book store today and saw Van Helsing. It was a OK movie. I miss a lot of my Florida friends already. so much so that I have had several late night conversations with several people ( we are talking like 4 in the morning on the phone heh). I had to get a drug test and physical today that was really lame oh well. oh well. oh well

I do not believe in absolutes. Absolute Good,Evil,Truth,etc. It stems from my disbelief of perfection. My hatred of a static world. I have a very asympotic few of everything. Like you can always be approaching infinity but never reach it, I like that. I also like how infinity is a dynamic quantity. I do not believe in the nihilist can exist in this world, I do not believe in reaching absolute zero. Its kinda like how like is a journey not a destination. A static point is so boring, and frail. Perhaps this limits me as a person. That I believe anyhting can change, that nothing is what it seems. I somehow doubt that this not a proactive few of things, but I am open to the possibility its not. I like how pi is irrational, that the pattern is unseen, something we don't understand. I am just saying don't be a point or assume someone is, we're all lines, and we are always changing.

Diamonds are forever [Apr. 11th, 2004|04:16 pm]
Lone Mantis of the Apocalypse!!!
so i was sitting up late last night and a lot of things were racking around in my brain at 4:30 in the morning.
I though i share some of the less personal ones that are remotely interesting.

This first one is kind of boring

My first thought was that of aerodynamics of cars. In this case i was pondering the spoiler. The purpose of a spoiler is to create a down force on the back wheels (on formula 1's there is a spoiler for the front wheels as well). For most commercial cars it is totally cosmetic and serves no real function. Why create this down force? well continuing with the formula 1 example, the car is made as aerodynamic and as light as possible that if a sharp draft were to hit it, it could actually become airborne ( i have seen footage of this, it isn't pretty, the car rises over a hundred feet into the air). Also, it increases traction on the wheels, allowing for less slip. For weight considerations and since it decrease the aerodynamics of the car is why you commonly see that the structure is made of aluminum. then i started thinking of "drafting" where you travel close behind a car to be inside its wake. yada yada yada

The next thing i thought of was nihilism and the circular paradox( is that redundant? i can't think of a non circular paradox off the top of my head)

Then i started thinking about zombies. Like in the new movie "dawn of the dead" and "28 days later" they are all pissed off and run at you. It is explained away as virus, no magic involved. Now this really bothered me, where are they getting the energy to run? I mean the body is pretty much a battery needed water and food to function. I mean they don't even really eat their victims, just fuck around with them til they die, and becomes zombies too so there isn't much food there. And if they are dead, wouldn't the functions of their body that created energy shut down? I mean for a while you could feed off your body assuming that the functions didn't shut down. Your muscles however would be the first thing to go, and the lactic acid build up would be horrendous (not that they would feel that). Also, in the movie these things sit out in the sun for atleast a week. The body doesn't take to well to days of direct sunlight, the skin would peel, most of the water would leave the bodies due to this. This would make the bodies extremely rigid, and not really in the prime for running and the what not. I mean I think under these conditions a zombie could at most live for 2 weeks, just my personal opinion.

on a side note when i did fall asleep I dreamt i was a Crane (from passions). Julian, Alister, some other guy and I were play spades. I was on alisters team. We won. The i dreamt i had a motorcycle and was hanging with crazy skaters. very weird.
