Greetings Claude.  That was a long read, but I followed nearly all of it.  The aircraft flying by must be nerve damaging, just from the anxiety it causes.

I guess it does make sense that plants would be more evolved if only time-duration were a factor, but cells organizing themselves into biological organisms depends on the plant life as a foundation.  Maybe parts of our unconscious mind has similar awareness as plants, that part of us that reassures us that we have no choice but to endure this experience.

Maybe we, each of us as individual entities, can discover creative ways of enduring ourselves, our appetites, our habits, our distractions, projects, obsessions ...

I have been enjoying sleep most as of late.  In many situations in life, I recall that a good remedy for the blues is to just nap and give your animal body a day off from internal demands.  If one becomes jittery and nervous, there is always coffee and cigarettes and some mental abstractions to interest the noodles between our ears.

Enduring ourselves is all that is required.  Maybe there are ancient tricks to bypass these frustrations?  Or, maybe there are no tricks.  Maybe those who have discovered better ways to exist end up unplugging from the Internet altogether.

If you don't mind, Claude, would you explain or elaborate on the following?

There seems to be still an issue about the censorship of invectives: in principle you don't sensor invectives from someone who speaks from the heart.

Thanks for the message.

You write:Married men are kept more disciplined.

I agree. And this discipline is a kind of punishment.(I wonder if you have read Foucault,the French philosopher) A kind of threat. If one is married and does not go to the office then the wive can sue the hubby for maintenance allowance.

One ends up becoming a slave to the wive. Many men work not one but two jobs to support their wives. When they return home from work ,late at night, all they get from the wive as thank you ,are insults regarding their mediocre earning capacity.

You mention the Russian anarchist philosopher and ,Mr.Silenus, who is a member here, is very knowledgeable about anarchism. Back in 2012-13,I'd sit alone in my room with a lot of mangoes and imagine that I was growing them myself in a small plot of land ,in the middle of nowhere, and was living off the grind. Easier said than done.

I do not trust the internet.Not only that, I do not trust my senses too. I think it might all be a hoax in a very fundamental manner.
You write:
Permanent marriage is anti-natural, so the third solution is necessary periodically. Plus the idiocy of marrying with social convenience in mind to then wallow in material riches: it enslaves children.

I think matrimony is a nefarious institution.  I find married people,generally speaking, quite boring. It is as if there is an invisible box around them beyond which they do not dare to think. Most of interesting people, like Senor Raul and Herr Hauser and Mr. Silenus and Mr.Ibra, are not married.

I am not quite sure what to make of the aircraft flying by your house. However, I'd say this- conspiracies, grand as well as petty, are more common than one might like to think. In every office I have ever worked, I have been conspired against. I seem to the unify the entire office against me. They all get together and think of ways of bringing me down. They derive pleasure from my suffering and misfortune-Schadenfreude.

Take care.

***** Schopenhauer?

This does not compute.  It is nonsense.  Why utter it?

A troll is a troll, no matter how elaborate or flamboyant.  Insults are insults.  Baiting is baiting.  Energy is too precious to get too worked up over anything written by a human animal on its keyboard.
