There are some ideas which I suddenly felt and still feel the need to entrust somewhere out from me.
I believe I will have to work on them in the remaining course of this life.
So here I am, writing in a hurry to anyone in particular and with no other intent but to exploit the characteristics of this blockchain.

  • What we call reality is only one of multiple layers.
  • The concept of time is illusory.
  • The concept of space is illusory.
  • The concept of identity is illusory or different from how we intend it.
  • "Everything flows" is instead "Everything creates" in a never-ending process.
  • Within this layer of reality, there are rules that can be exploited to accomplish our will.
  • Within this layer of reality, there are rules that can be bent to our will.
  • Every part contains the whole.

I think it's enough for now.

Gospel of Mark 11:20-25 from the King James Version (KJV)

And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Slams Das Kapital, the Ecrits and the Phenomenology of Spirit down
Let’s discuss this and make your thoughts Dialectical.


Sincerely @theironfelix, I studied Hegel and Marx (and Heidegger and so on..) at a decent level, and I also was a good philosophy student but I don't think I'm so fresh to be able to discuss about the Phenomenology of Spirit. Apart an exercise for my mind, these philosophers didn't give anything to my life and I'm quite cynical toward traditional philosophy. I save Marx for the class struggle and the social implications; I'd save also Nietzsche if I wasn't too rusty to talk about him. My thoughts above are born from intuition and the need of a reconciliation between science and spiritual approaches, keeping in mind the recent discoveries in the field of the quantum theory and the entanglement experiments, for example. I'm also aware that they may not / aren't "mine" but it doesn't really matter since they're more questions and purposes for further research than answers. Thanks for passing by!


When intuition is just unconscious counterintuition, smh. And I should’ve included the Dialectics of Nature in the list, oh well. (And don’t forget Lacan that I included in my original list!) Anyways, I agree to an extent with your thoughts with just how Dialectics works in general in the socio-economic level, personal level and speech level.

Not the sort of post I can comment on except to say, these are the moments that shape your life. You stopped, you reflected, you shared. And now I'm writing and thinking. In a way, you've already bent the universe.
I hope your reflection leads you on a path that enriches understanding.


Thank you, I feel that you share with me the spirit of this post. My mood has already changed about having posted it. But I'm happy in a way, since it was a moment of naked intellectual honesty .. I'm not that deep or erudite or whatever, I was just driving my car and being charmed by a connection between Bohr, the entanglement and that passage of the gospel plus Eraclitus and if I've to be sincere Gustavo Rol and certain principles of magic.


Sometimes you have to let the mind form connections. Strange and wonderful things may come of it :)


So true. Letting the mind roaming free: everything seems to plot agains it nowadays.
