One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.

Are the only two certainties that there are at least two players...

you and everything that’s not?

Think ≠ Chess & Cognitive Dissonance

The great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearance
as though they were realities,
and are often more influenced by the things that seem than those that are.



Niccolo Machiavelli

Is what’s happening, happening or what you tell yourself is happening?

When you recall, are you remembering,
or are you remembering the last memory of a recollection?

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.



Socrates
Is yesterday a certainty, if the past is dependent on the present?

Is what you used to look like what you see in a mirror?

Things are not what they appear to be, nor are they otherwise.

Buddha
Is the present a place you’ve never been?

Is present experience relative to the past
or memories of the past?

We are never deceived; we but deceive ourselves.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Is what you remember
usually better or worse than what actually happened?
