Life Philosophy

Life is mysterious. Our brains fiend for concrete answers and absolute truths that may never come to be. As much as we project our need for organized structure onto the world, the box we think outside of may not even be a box. I live for paradoxes, mindfucks, exceptions to the rule, and challenging conventions. The basis of my beliefs lies in falsifiable theories and scientific inquiry. However, I believe it is too short-sided to say with conviction that no higher power exists just because it hasn’t been proven, just like it’s wrong to say God exists just because it hasn’t been disproven. Science is the pier which I stand from while gazing into the deep abyss of mysteries we have yet to illuminate. You make your own meaning, so live life like you mean it.

I am...

― Albert Einstein

I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. You live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of.
–Louis C. K.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
