I don't know why.  I don't have to justify it.  Or do I?

I think we should not give a conscious meaning to our unconscious acts.In most cases we do not consciously choose what to do and how to behave.Black is the most essential of all colours. If I may say so,  one must admire black. Nothing can debauch it.

Fortunately I escaped many harnesses since I have not reproduced.


Thinking is like a fountain. Once it gets going at a certain pressure, well, it almost impossible to turn it off. What odd things come up with the water!The river in front of me is black. I think it contains many things.

Quote
One need not be a chamber to be haunted,
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.

Far safer, of a midnight meeting
External ghost,
Than an interior confronting
That whiter host.

Far safer through an Abbey gallop,
The stones achase,
Than, moonless, one's own self encounter
In lonesome place.

Ourself, behind ourself concealed,
Should startle most;
Assassin, hid in our apartment,
Be horror's least.

The prudent carries a revolver,
He bolts the door,
O'erlooking a superior spectre
More near.

This whole sexuality business is weirder than I thought it would be-now I know why Lovecraft never mentions it.What I am writing,this and the previous posts, is primarily about my OWN pathological condition.
