Unrequested needs, unrequested impulses ... Might the very protoplasm of existence itself learn not to want ?

The trouble is, if whole idea of time is just inside of our heads,then all bets are off.

I am on page no. 26 of the Schopenhauerian philosophy book which you recommended.One is so small,compared to the rest of the world,no wonder one's desires are dashed most of the time.

Schopenhauer had no internet. Though,he did have a lot of books. Yet, he was, in some ways, quite isolated particularly in the second half of life and yet he was quite confident of his own capabilities.

The social and the cultural milieu tries to swamp one from all sides.Marriage is their Trojan  horse.There are but two possible alternatives-either one beheads the horse or one is stamped to death by it.

I am not entirely a stranger to horror. Poe had such a terrible life,probably worse than that of Lovecraft's-all this pain, all this suffering,all this misery-for what,exactly?

Take care.
