topic title has the jist of it
“I think the act of creation or destruction feels so good because they are the moments when we synchronize with the manifestation that is already happening all around us. On the largest scale we can imagine and the smallest biological scale, there is creation and destruction happening all around us at all times. When we choose to participate in this grand act we are able to feel what it is like to be alive and in-tune with our surroundings.”
Peter Westermann of Threyda
The word ‘destroy’ is known. How to do it depends to the object and the objective. Again relativity is a messy culprit: how scientific – logical you’d think to destroy for a good reason for example, there always those who think the other ways.
I remember making RDX and packing it in those big cardboard tubes that printing companies roll paper onto. Theyre like 2ft long and 5in wide… It could easily bring down a decent sized house, but we just tossed them in the woods, ran off, and detonated them..
You can feel the explosion in your balls… Its empowering..
I think it’s valuable to destroy stuff, like an above user said, it’s a form of creativity. Though I don’t think it always comes from insecurities. Most of the time we have to destroy things to create things. Just think about all the destroyed trees that make the framing of your house…controlled, though destruction nonetheless.
But did you really make explosives to destroy things? Or did you do it to feel the thrill of the explosion in your nuts? I used to blow shit up all the time. There’s a thrill to it. It’s all divine though.
@ampeacock1, Exactly, its thrilling.. I was also in high school, and I think that everyone, when theyre a ‘kid’ goes through a destructive phase.. Its all part of learning about the world around you.. Of course I’m not much older now, and still find explosions inherently awesome..
Just the sheer jaw-dropping power of them is akin to watching the work of a god. And every bit as beautiful as watching a work of art be created. Though a much more sinister beauty..
@logicalliberty HAHA, my friend and I used to have a race to see who could build a complete helecopter out of legos and the instant we would complete them, we would throw them up at the ceiling as hard as we could to make them shatter into a million pieces, and thats how you won the race hahaha…
I guess I was a pretty destructive kid now that I think about it..
“destruction is a form of creation” -donnie darko
also, destroying stuff gives us humans a sense of control. since we cannot control our external world to a certain point. i think that just us kind of “venting” It makes us feel powerful and gives us a thrill.
