Existential Fragments
2010 Joshua W. Alfred.
2 Existential Fragments
Existentialism n.
A philosophy that emphasizes the uniqueness and
isolation of the individual experience in a hostile or
indifferent universe, regards human existence as
unexplainable, and stresses freedom of choice and
responsibility for the consequences of one's acts.
3 Existential Fragments
Preface
Some people complain but never think about what
they are complaining about. Some people act, but
never think about what their actions mean. Some
people think, but never think about what they are
thinking. Existentialists contrive deeper meaning and
ideas about themselves, by engaging in thoughts about
existence, and the existence of those thoughts.
I wrote this book out of horror; the kind that fills
your brain cells with unnerving dismay; the kind that
alarms you, baffles you, and throws you into hours of
speculation about your own beliefs, just to check if
theyre really informing you what you are thinking
really consists of some integrity.
!rom my awful agitation, being perplexed by ideas
that are more than moronic, came the thought, "write
a book that kicks the standards in the intellectual
balls.#
$hose werent the exact words that came to me, but I
thought those would be best assimilated in a capitalist
culture where ball kicking is often a hilarity because
of its ability to severely weaken. $ruthfully, it was
more of a slow, absurd, and intrusive idea to write this
book that inspired this full%blown attack on the memes
out there which have casually lodged themselves so
deeply into the festering corners of the social jiggle
4 Existential Fragments
called the collective unconscious.
I dont think this book can be an excellent book, or
even one worth reading because it sets out to make the
majority rethink their stupidity that comes from wide%
spread, and taught closed%mindedness. If thats not the
kind of mentality that belongs to you, the ideas will
therefore, only tickle some humor spot. Its not really
my intention, it never is my intention to be humorous;
in fact humor, for the most part,is unintentional. &y
intentions in writing this book were '( to aggravate
you, )( to give you the opportunity to contemplate a
different perspective about real life matters. *ot many
people that I have come across are willing to do as
such.
If youre the type of person that cant stand being
aggravated by a jackass writer that has nothing better
to do then make you think less of, and +uestion your
beliefs, then you probably havent read this far. If you
have, only expect more of the same antagonism.
I wrote this book about existential matters, that have
to do with thoughts about existence, majorly working
around how conflicts cause confusion. I also put forth
my theory of being, which may be worked on in latter
publications.
5 Existential Fragments
Death
Live to die, and die to live.
$he continued existence of the structure of the man
is so because the force of mans will is not snuffed by
any great forces, which if phenomenally existent
would overpower him. ,verpowering force, placed on
mans body, and mind, decay his well%being, and bring
him closer to state of complete structural non%
existence.
&an exists in a comfort -one, where he is allowed,
by natural interdependency, to have his structural
existence. . structural existence is a composed being
of matter, some having vast local interactions, some
have few. /ife has vast.
0ithout the interdependency being setup in a such a
such a way, life looses its homeostasis; and so
everything that may go with it is a lost as well.
1eath is just as natural as birth, yet we seem to be
moved to supernatural understandings of it simplicity.
$his may be compensation due to the pain that comes
with emotional loss. .ll pain creates defense and with
death being submerged in sorrow it is by far a reason
to invent unreasonable results following lifes
expiration.
Sorrow towards death, isnt some innate response to
6 Existential Fragments
death. If we were brought up in a culture, or an
environment that made death something '( joyous, or
)( honored 2more then it might be today(, wed have
differing feelings about it.
0e dont fear birth, because birth is the emergence of
life from death. /ife emerging back into death comes
with the awareness and of the future prospect.
$ake a moment in life when you hurt yourself. .re
you afraid of that moment3 *o, because it has passed.
0here you afraid of it before it occurred3 *o. ,r else
you would have avoided it before hand.
0ith death itself, there isnt always avoidance, yet it
is is something that we know is going to happen, so
we try to avoid it, and feel that avoidance as fear. 4y
increasing avoidance towards something, we increase
the probability of it affecting us.
1eath isnt what people think it is, because in death
there is no thought. 1eath isnt scary, because you
cant fear when youre dead. 1eath isnt what people
imagine it to be, because there is no imaging what
happens after you die. If you think there is, think
again. 5ou are imagining.
$hose people that dont die in severe pain, or after
long years of suffering with cancer or other viruses,
really fear loss, and are really pained by dying, not
death itself.
$he pain, the fear of loss of what they have, is in
7 Existential Fragments
itself an aspect of sociological death. . good
relationship, a nice car, a few kids, what a tragedy to
loss all those precious things3
Its this expectation of losing everything that makes
people so paranoid about death, and also hold on to
life. /ife itself is the attachment to the world
interdependence, and death is letting go of it.
Sure its fine to avoid death, who doesnt want to3 4ut
to live your whole life out afraid of loss is a waste of
thought, and mind space. $he dead dont care about
what they dont have.
0hen death comes, and you use your ability to
avoid it, with no success, its inevitable just as much
as life is.
&ark $wain once wrote, to paraphrase, I was dead
for '6 billion years, I wont "mind# it. Epicurus one of
the most influential philosophers of all time wrote, "I
was, I am, I am not, I dont mind.#
$he science of death is this7 almost every molecule
that one is composed of helps sustain the thinking
mind, and makes the body and brain come alive. .t
death these particles like the particles of every system
that has been "broken# breaks down into lesser forms
of complexity. 8igidity is lost, muscles are feeble,
thoughts wander with no awareness of the difference
between one moment and the next.
$he experience of dying isnt that bad if you arent in
8 Existential Fragments
pain leading up to it.
$he moments before death are actually +uite
glorious, seeing as death is a release from all muscle
strain. $his feeling can be best described as the feeling
one gets from looking into the depths of a hori-on,
where the muscles in the eyes arent as focused as they
are on near things; thus creating a feeling of
liberation.
.fter the molecules of your life, have broken down,
they like star dust are recycled in the system of the
universe and may eventually take on another shape. If
they do, and "you# wake up, you will have no
recollection of living before, or having been dead. 9ust
as a much as a star has no recollection of being one
before.
5ou will think of life the same way you think of life
now, strange, loud, and a bit confusing.
0hy would this be so3 .wareness, from particle
structure, has certain properties that it relies on for its
existence, namely those that it now relies on.
Even if you wake up as a blue dancing being, with
three ears, or a nose as big as an anteaters you will
think it just as normal as all the animals which think
of their existence on earth now.
$he other way death affects the world, is by affecting
those who have to deal with the persons body, and the
absence of their presence in their lives. /oosing some
9 Existential Fragments
one is a reason to mourn, 2in our culture( but no
amount of crying rewinds what has been done, what
has been set in motion.
$here are two ways of observing death7
'. Sociological : we see people die, and lose
consciousness. In this we see what death does, and
that is a desolation of a bodies ability to function, to
live.
). Individually : individual death is experienced only
in dying, in coming to structural non%existence. $here
is no experience of death for a being. $hings that are
dead, matter, dont know that they are dead. If you
dont believe me, talk to any thing which doesnt have
a brain%stem. $he closest one can be to death, is being
ignorant.
$here is no time with observation, when things are
dead. !rom this knowledge, and from the knowledge
of the transformation of being, it could be said that
dying is the only way to be born again. .n idea that
might sound like reincarnation, but is really a natural
process which brings scattered matter into an existent
being with consciousness and memory of itself.
0ithout death we would be stuck in these bodies for
eternity. 0hat would you be if never born3 0ho
would have named you3 0here would have those
names come from3 .nd what if you were to never die,
never to pass away into an oblivion3 0ould you have
10 Existential Fragments
needed to be born3 0ould you want to be trapped in
your current body forever with no possible way out3
&etaphysically, death is an exit strategy, without
which, being would not have the ability to transform,
from life to life.
$he universe always is, and where ever it is thinking
there is an I. $he universe can never escape itself,
only transform, ignore, be unaware of itself. $he
universe is not just eternal awareness, but is
contrasted by unawareness, but such a state cannot be
experienced without awareness. Even in awareness,
how might one truly experience non%awareness3. .ll
that is unaware allows for awareness, and this is a
reason why there is transition into it. ;old any matter
in hand and that is unawareness.
*o mind, no sense of time.
<. Evolutionary function of death : If there is no death
there is no evolution, no evolution no life would have
emerged. /ife is an adaptable structure to a fluctuating
environment.
8emoving death from a life that has con+uered it
doesnt eradicate life 2but it does eradicate the ability
to naturally adapt to a natural environment(.
Soon it may be possible to eliminate our "short#
lives 2in comparison to billions of years of possible
experience(, in which case death will not just be
existentially con+uered by the one dying.
11 Existential Fragments
Afterlife
ocus, not on life after, but life no!. or life no!, !as once
life after.
=eople that believe in, or speculate the contemporary
versions of reincarnation often +uestion what they will
return as in the next life3 I know what Ill be. $o play
along, my choose would be an invisible goat 2I often
choose with much variation(. ,f course, any choice is
imaginable, seeing as death has no appearance.
1eath is like a dark room you have never been in
before. 5ou can walk in and imagine all you want, but
there is really no use, you cant see beyond the
darkness, just in the same way you cant know what is
beyond death.
Some insist in believing that there is heaven after
life, and wait their whole lives just to die so they can
reach this place. Spoiled brain%cells, lost souls, and
self%inhibiting memes if I have ever thought of them>
$hose people that believe that there is heaven after%
life probably do so because they cant stand the earth
in the shape that it is in. $hey cant stand their own
lives, or the life on earth>
So now, after reali-ing this pessimism, we have two
great destructive memes. .dded together they make a
dark and dreary combination of misanthropy and
desire for death, and then on top it they who hold to
12 Existential Fragments
such convictions dare wonder why earth is so rotten3
$he contradictions are unbearably morose.
. species isnt judged by some exterior surveyor that
wants animals to go to heaven or hell when they die.
Instead we should be trying to make a life here on
earth livable for the millions of animals, and human
beings that will descend from this generation; and
should grade our living performance based on the
efficiency of our earthly system.
0ouldnt that be more fulfilling then wanting to die
just so you can achieve liberation from what ever
anxiety you let hound you with the remainder of your
miserable human life, banded from eternal bliss in
some imagined heaven3
$he 4uddha once +uestioned, "if there is another
life after this how should you live.# $he monk replied,
"I should plant happiness, and live well, so as I may
reap the rewards in a better incarnation.# $he 4uddha
then +uestioned "if there is no life after this how
should you live.# $he monk replied, "if death is the
end, I should live every moment with full immersion,
with pleasure, with love, for this would be the only
time I could.# 0ith this the 4uddha showed the monk
that a life after the one he was living did not have to
be the cause of his happiness.

13 Existential Fragments
Death Penalty
"o punish is to teach, to teach is to change. #f a thing can't be
changed through the punishment, then the punishment is
uncalled for.
If you want to punish some one, I cannot think of
there being a point in killing them. $here is no feeling
in death, and thus there is no punishment. 0hat kind
of punishment do you think a swatted mos+uito
receives after it bites you and gives you a horrible
disease3
$he death penalty is only enforced by those who
want to release some of their anger, or think that what
has been done can be forgotten about easier with the
murder of the "evil%doer.# Its as reflexive as the swat.
0iping the mind of a mad men off of the face of earth
2figuratively speaking(, only stops that mind from
experiencing life, and from possible continuing to do
harm 2which prison does fine(.
$he mind experiences nothing, not even that when
dead, and I dont see how that could possibly be
conceived of as a penalty. If you want to punish
someone, and you think punishing someone some
how solves something, then the best way to do it is to
cut the person off from any form of satisfaction.
0hy there would be evil%doers allowed to act out
14 Existential Fragments
before the government intervened, or some one
noticed something wrong with the persons ideas and
state of mind, is beyond my thought capacity. 4latant
irresponsibility is only to be blamed.
$o live with what youve done, is far worse than to
die for what youve done.
15 Existential Fragments
Suicide
$e! thoughts change minds, ne! minds, can create ne!
conditions.
=eople who kill themselves want one thing7 relief.
;owever, there is no feeling of relief in a state known
as death. Its in the brains potentiality, to create
scenarios that rescue or create a path to relief, but
when the brain thinks that dying will lead to relief one
harbors suicidal thinking. $his kind of thinking is
directly linked to our conventional ideas of death,
which I hope to revise in the writing of this book>
=eople who are suicidal think death will end
suffering, murder will end suffering, and with
themselves to blame in a selfish society, the suffering
brain turns against itself.
$he best thing a person can do for themselves when
inflicted with these types of thoughts, is to give
themselves time to find a way out of their
circumstances, or state of mind that is causing them
such intolerable turmoil.
. person with inner peace is not likely to kill
themselves, or even have many suicidal thoughts, thus
the cure for such thought patterns is rejuvenated
thinking.
&ost parents who encounter such thoughts expressed
16 Existential Fragments
by their struggling adolescents that goes through ?hrs
2as long as a work day( of oppressive mind%drilling
schooling, and tension of social pressure, dont take
them seriously enough.
=arents please understand your childs threats are a
sign of a struggle. $hey can learn to figure them out
themselves, or you can help. Simple choice. @nowing
when to intrude and when not is the difficult thing, but
surely there are signs that parents shouldnt ignore.
!actors that may contribute to teen suicide include7
%ivorce of parents : children that have had a rough
child%hood, and experience the break of their parents
may think themselves the cause of it, making
overwhelming tension from guilt and a desire to want
relief.
&iolence in the home : blame here again adds tension,
as well as social isolation due to the effects abuse has
on an adolescents self%esteem.
#nability to find success at school : '( failure in
school, with )( friends, and with grades, may cause <(
parents to feel, and express negativity towards their
childs ego, and these three factors are enough to push
any adolescent brain off the edge.
eelings of !orthlessness : alienation can be a hell,
and all hells are have those that desire to escape them.
'ubstance abuse : getting carried away with drugs is
most always a sign of problems in the structure of the
17 Existential Fragments
family, and over%dosing may be the apparent resolve
for them.
%eath of someone close to the teenager : losing a
loved one, either in death, or in just plain leaving or
abandonment, can be a great mental infliction. $he
brain has to make up for a missing part of itself,
because people are really that deeply imbedded into
each others lives.
I think people should be allowed to commit suicide
if they want to. =eople didnt re+uest to come into the
world, the least the world can offer them is way out of
the experience.
$here are other ways to achieve what you want, then
to kill the self, but I still think that society should offer
painless death to those who are beyond cure, or
beyond mental help.
I dont accept death mentality, but accept the will to
give up on life, why is that3
1eath as a form of punishment, is different then a
death to escape self%pain caused by something
completely not preventable, or treatable. &an is
always trying to relieve himself from pain, death stops
pain, causes it to stop, but doesnt give relief.
8elief is a conscious experience that comes after the
end of pain. Escaping pain, is to end pain so it doesnt
continue. $herein lays a difference.
18 Existential Fragments
Unreal and Real
(very thought is imagination, till connected !ith external
phenomena.
$he unreal, is the work of the imagination. Asing the
word unreal, doesnt suddenly divide the universe into
an unreal and real state; everything that happens in
reality, is real. Anreal, should really just be thought of
as "disingenuous#, or represent ion which has no
congruence with external reality. Such "unrealness# is
only possible with mind.
.n actor is said to give an unreal performance. .
daughter who comes up to her father with tears in her
eyes, after not getting something she wanted, isnt
acting unreal, they are being manipulative, deceiving,
acting; whether it be for the better or for the worse.
$alking about unreal things, is to talk from the
imagination. If I were to talk about flying cats, I
would have combined the property of flying, most
likely wings, 2although jet packs work( with a cat.
Anreal is imaginative.
Bombination of properties that are not currently
connected in "reality# is the movement of forces in
"such%and%such a way,# as to replicate the
combination of properties seen the minds eye.
&any of the things in life may seem unreal. $he
19 Existential Fragments
future has "unrealness#, and for the mind re+uires
imagination to think up what it can be like.
20 Existential Fragments
Spirituality
"he mind is a complex biological mechanism, this complexity
brings about a!areness, and no simple thing may have it.
Spirituality is a primitive term that is used to denote
mental functions, including emotions, and shared
events in which they are expressed.
"Spiritual experience# for example, is a connection
with reality at some emotional level. Some refer to
spirituality as a connection with a divinity, I think they
do this so as to feel as if their lives are more important
then they are made out to be on earth 2as they think it
is(, or so as to explain a mental phenomena that can
not be put into any other category of experience.
Spirituality is a rejection for earthly pursuits for
mental appeasement in seeking "higher# imagined
goals.
$here are no apples above the tree.
Even though all thoughts are earthly, one can ignore
the earth, as easily as one can ignore anything else
that they dont have interest in, or dont see a reason to
have interest in.
,nly humans have spirituality. 0hat we should have
is interaction, unity, and creative thinking that doesnt
include an essence that is put purposely beyond ones
mental grasp. $he ego always wants more, and it
21 Existential Fragments
seeking spirituality, is to place a goal above itself that
it can never achieve, but always seems to go after 2in
the spiritual people that is(. !or example; spiritualists
make the body something to be degraded, and thereby
monument their thoughts and identities above earthly
realities, such as biological decay.
22 Existential Fragments
Supremacy
)hat is superior about something, is *ust a !ay !hich it is
superior. #n many !ays superiority may become !ea+ness.
,ne of the main ways people make themselves out to
be superior is by using threats, thats why we have
guns, among other reasons.
$his idea that threatening some one gives superiority
comes from '( parenting 2where old demeans young
because of physical and intellectual inferiority( )(
sibling rivalry 2where brothers and sisters fight for
attention, and fight each other over
possessionsCcontrol( <( schooling.
=eople use threats, and verbal abuse to deprive
people of their self%esteem, which is contingent upon
what people think about themselves. Self%esteem is
determined by thoughts that are mostly influenced by
exterior judgments.
$hreats are also used to control and manipulate
people into doing things that they wouldnt ordinarily
do. $his can be seen in women who stick with their
husbands, or boyfriends, even after being physically
abused several times.
$he man is by nature a controller, and he seeks to
control everything so he can better live with it, and
fulfill his own wishes, or agendas in the process.
23 Existential Fragments
I like to avoid this word 2control( when it comes to
human interaction; a much better substitute for the
word would be compromise. $hose people who try to
compromise will find themselves not needing to be in
control, or being the dominant one. 0orking together
may not be the easiest thing to do, but it is the most
just and e+ual thing to do.
/eaders of the world, who seek absolute authority
forget that the people are the ones that give the ruler
hisCher power; and thus those who run for office
should consider putting comprise, and intelligent
compassion ahead of everything else, because a ruler
does not stand alone; no matter how much convincing
he uses to justify his stated supremacy.
$here is a difference between having better skills
than other people and gaining supremacy, than stating
your supremacy because of social rank. Still that
supremacy of skill, and all those adrenaline boosts
that come with it, wouldnt likely be there with others
to which to compare ones own skill by.
!or example7 . bully who walks up to a short kid
and opens his nostrils, and stands tall, would look
pretty dumb, and deluded, if that shorter kid was void
of the scene. $hose who have a superiority
compensation and egotistical mind%state, for whatever
inferiority complex they are trying to make up for, are
best to reali-e their dependencies on things that are
24 Existential Fragments
not the "I.#
$he most fit animals are always fit to particulars, and
not fit for everything. 0hat is an advantage in one
climate, or time, may become a disadvantage at
another.
25 Existential Fragments
Evolution of religion
&an involved with religion finds himself to be a
citi-en. &an without religion is alienated, and feels
his citi-enship lacking. $he position of non%religion is
not attractive for the previously listed reason, so most
sensible men settle with their religious participation.
$he emancipation from religion is mans ac+uaintance
with his real will to act, his true nature, not confined
to 4iblical or religious instruction. $his freedom is
attractive, but man can do little with his will in a state
of alienation and his will is even thus made more
weak, even though it may have brought him
existential resolve and growth of his intellect.
;e may live out this ac+uired state of seclusion with
more awareness of his life and the social workings of
his species or he may will to use his knowledge and
become an activist. $his activism shoots him back
into the social worlds, like Socrates coming back into
the cave, and he may find his need for social
acceptance actuated, but only if his activism is
attractive to the species.
If it isnt the person is than crunched beneath the
collective boot and oppressed for his attempt to make
others see the light, which he has seen or projects for
others to absorb and use to find their own existential
power. $he accepted activist becomes eminent for his
26 Existential Fragments
knowledge, his elucidation of the people. $hen each
man who has heard his irreligious stand, takes the
same path as the eminent activist, running into the
same choices, and blockades. Soon there are many
who have wakened to the wrongs of their religious
membership. *ot all can be activist so instead they
form an organi-ation which does not support the same
oppressions as older organi-ations.
$hey have formed a group of people having similar
goals, and philosophies of life, and it would called a
religion if only the members of it didnt think the word
to be a term associated with human injustice, and non%
progressive stand stills.
$he people have become citi-ens of a progressive
and compassionate philosophical view towards the
world. $his views is the humanitarian one : the
inevitable out come of religious evolution.
"0hoever dares to undertake to establish a peoples
institutions most feel himself capable of changing as it
were, human nature itself, of transforming each
individual who, in isolation, is a complete and solitary
whole, into a part of something greater than himself
from which in a sense, he derives his life and being.#
8ousseau.
&an should construct organi-ations that give man
natural and tangible incentives which turn him into a
self%responsible and species oriented individual.
27 Existential Fragments
&an makes religion, than he lets religion make him.
8eligion separates man from nature with its
supernatural hogwash. &an should be intimate with
nature since his life depends on how it acts. &an can
only be intimate with nature through natural science,
every other relationship he has is with his own ego,
and imagination.
28 Existential Fragments
Technology
,eligion is a product of delirious imagination.
$echnology is evidence that science is getting us
somewhere. 8eligions are evidence that some are
committed to not going where our investigation into
nature and constant advent of technology would
arrive.
8eligious development hasnt offered man many
innovative and better ways of living. In fact a logician
sent into the midst of a religious philosophy is likely
to find contradiction, unprovable, and unbelievable
phenomena that would throw him into a da-e of
existential confusion.
$here have been some advancements of religion but
woes far outweigh the joys. 8eligion could be thought
of as an ancient science, one with a mystical method
of understanding nature instead of the empirical
method, founded in the recent centuries.
Empiricism, that is math, psychology, biology,
philosophy, etc, have all shown to be more beneficial
than moving culture ahead with the rusty engine of
blind faith.
$he primitive consciousness, one of traditions and
faith, is opposed by the scientific modern
consciousness, one for mentality for the tangible and
29 Existential Fragments
useful. Such a dichotomy is proof that the minds of
man are sometimes for conformity with the past and
sometimes more open to transition.
$hose who conform to past comprehensions are for
individual reasons aversive to modern pursuits and
those who advocate up to date scientific
comprehensions are aversive toward the plausibility
of finding satisfaction in what may be called a
"present knowledge.#
@nowledge envelops all studies of cosmic
phenomena, and for human beings it is always being
refined. Diven in primitive times knowledge of the
world was completely instinctual thus very dark, and
coarse, it makes sense that knowledge is refined to
lighten up the world and find more certainty in it than
our spontaneous evolution and existence would allow
on its own without in+uiry.
=resent knowledge changes in relation with data

more scientific and finally culminates as present
knowledge.
$he growth of =@ is the stairway to further data
30 Existential Fragments
gathering and materialistic improvement 2&I(. ,nce
you understand one thing you can +uestion its
performances or its implications. &I is highly applied
to technology and is a form of thinking of errors or
difficulties, and the act of trying to merge data to
construct more efficient understandings and
technologies.
0ith all this in mind, knowledge is, to transform life
to the most optimal of all conditions, and religion
stops this from happening by conformity and
obstinacy toward progress of knowledge.
/ife is about what you can and can not do with your
being, and knowledge limits what you know you can
and cant do.
8eligious ritual, routine, and thoughtless habit, puts
a damper on creativity, on new connections which
create functional technological components for living
better, and stops insights into &an and his ceaseless
potential. $he snuffing out of creativity by fellowship
with traditions are indicative of the relevance of the
behavioral repetition man orbits around; and such are
his conscious axis.
31 Existential Fragments
Atheists and Theists
Atheism and %eism, t!o groups fighting over a made up
character, that comes from variables that are present in
being.
$he biggest waste of brain space of them all is Dod.
5ou dont have to care about much at all with Dod at
your side. ";e# is one that you can talk to when
youre stressed, pray to when youre in need, seek
relief from fear from when youre +uivering over the
idea of death, or some other horrible reality.
*ot really. $his word is just used for comfort. &uch
like Santa clause is when you tell your child that it
doesnt exist, but all the other kids believe it forcing
you into a tough situation where you have to decide to
lie, or tell your child Santa is real, just so heCshe gets
the comforts of fitting in.
.nimals that pray to Dod, are obviously ill. If not ill,
heavily influenced by entertaining tradition. Imagine
walking out one fine day in the savannah of .frica, to
find lions all perched up in prayer. ,r, going to the
beach and seeing sea%lions taking the blood of 9esus.
$hose who believe in Dod, say they do because they
are smarter then the other animals, but one would
wonder if they werent significantly more stupid when
it comes to learning to adapt3 4y stupid here I mean,
32 Existential Fragments
bewildered.
It is not really a modern%humans fault that they
believe in Dod3 $he concept is a strong and
comfortable dated meme, one that explains the very
existence of everything, with a single word. $oo bad it
is applied, unnecessary to an imaginary father figure,
instead of existence itself.
Bivili-ed human beings, are sheltered from nature,
they forget where they are, and that they themselves
are the universe.
I think Dod makes up for the lack of this knowledge.
.ll other animals take it for granted that they exist
independently of a supreme father figure who
according to myth made, heaven, hell, and earth; great
backing for ones 2imaginary( supremacy; much like
in the case of Santa Blause with all his super%human
powers, and elf minions.
$here is no need for Dod, there has never been a
need for Dod, till man said there was that need.
$hose that think Dod exists, are foolish, and have
forgotten their oneness with reality. If people believe
in Dod because they cant understand a first cause,
note7 there is no exact first cause, things always
happen.
9ust because you can ask how down to the point
where the universe started to expand, and even further
into infinity doesnt suddenly necessitate the existence
33 Existential Fragments
of an exterior cause. *o matter what your scripture
says, those are all ideas of men, so to is the concept of
Dod.
Dod is a creator figure, and as I stress in all my
latest books the creator of the universe is the universe.
It is a self%existing organism which has no origin other
then itself. $hose who believe in Dod do not
understand this. Energy is eternal, it doesnt need a
creator, all it needs is itself.
Breationists think of their existence as contingent,
and Dods existence as necessary. Bontingent means
existence dependent on, and without dependency, a
non%existence. ;owever, mans existence is necessary
in that he is conscious of his place in the eternal
cosmos, thereby making the existence of deities
contingent upon mans necessary consciousness.

Faith
A man finds his !ife in bed !ith another man. "he !ife says
are you going to have faith that # !asn't sleeping !ith him, or
believe your eyes-
"!aith without works is dead.# $here is a very thin
line between faith and ignorance; just as there is a
very thin line between hope and delusion. =eople who
use faith to predict events, dont understand
probability.
!aith is a theological word, not one of much depth,
or one that gives a person major insight upon its use.
!or example7 I have faith that it will rain tomorrow3
0hat does that even mean3 Isnt that the worst
possible word you can use to describe how your mind
is able to predict that rain will come tomorrow3 Its
blind ignorance in that case. !aith doesnt change how
things are unless it is used for motivation, and lets
face it faith, isnt a very motivating word. Its a dull
word, and I oddly enough associate it with a woman
spinning around in circles in the midst of a spring
da-e.
$hose who operate their minds on a tactic called
faith are feeble minded thinkers that dont see the
point, or think it a strain to use, much more
descriptive ways of thinking.
35 Existential Fragments
$hose who think faith makes them whole, are
normally highly emotional women, or simple minded
men; both think they would go mad with out their
faith in something; too late.
!aith comes from dependency and trust, which
derives from parental relationships, and lack of trust
in the world.
If you dont trust yourself, or your environment you
are by definition lacking intelligence, because
intelligence is the ability to understand self and
environment.
0hat is the difference between trust and faith3
!aith substitutes itself for reason, where as trust is a
form of comfort, and it can and should be reasonable.
5ou dont trust that some behind you with a gun to
your back wont shoot, neither do you put faith in that
they wont. 5ou hope, with a sudden outburst of
gratitude for living, they wont shoot.
$rust should be applied to those who you know will
not harm you; faith should be done away with, for it is
blind.
;aving reasonable faith, would be much like having
a black that was also white. &any act on faith, many
should act on reason.
. man named Dlen was sitting outside on his patio
with his friend =aul. Dlen, a physicist asked him,
"what do you think makes everything different then
36 Existential Fragments
everything else.#
=aul a religious man +uickly replied, "Dod.#
Dlen let out a chuckle, "Sure but how do you think
he does it3#
"Dod only knows.#
"$hats really funny# Dlen laughs, "what if I knew.#
;umans should be careful about the words they use,
especially when it comes to words like Dod, that can
be used by pantheistic terminology 2all is Dod(,
because the word Dod also includes a ego rise which
makes people forget their dependency on the world
around them, and the people they live with. In western
culture it is much like saying, "I alone exist,# but
since Dod is also known as all%powerful it creates a
subliminal correlation that is even more ego rattling.
.lso if one believes an external creator doesnt exist
2Dod( but believes all is Dod, 2pantheism( this creates
cognitive dissonance 2internal conflict not recogni-ed
by consciousness but sometimes stressing(. Since all
existence is responsible for existence, then I can feel
for the pantheist, but it would be in their best interest
to call the all simply "reality# "cosmos# instead of
Dod, to avoid confusion and hostility.

Worship
A +ing !ithout follo!ers is a peasant.
If you want to worship something you normally have
to bow down to it. /et me get my mop, it comes in
handy, I use it much more than any god. It must be
revered with worship.
5ou can bow down to anything, it doesnt mean
anything unless its an egotistical authority figure who
thinks they are better then you; even then it only
causes the ego to inflate; makes one feel secure about
their total identity.
;umbling yourself, and worshiping are supposedly
signs of devotion. !alling on your knees, isnt
devotion its being a mind slave. =eople who could
spend half their time thinking as they do on their
knees would benefit.
0orship comes close to meaning obedience; which is
another word parents use in raising their children.
",bey me,# is a maxim all human parents employ in
one demanding way or another. =eople who worship,
normally have some kind of dependency on authority
figures in their lives besides their own minds.
I dont worship anything. I pay attention to one thing,
and another. I show respect towards people who show
respect. I admire nature, I dont worship it. I love to
38 Existential Fragments
repeatedly do activities, such as laying down in the
summer sun, but that doesnt mean Im a sun
worshiper. I dont give money to a church, and think
for some reason Im somehow devote, and thus a good
person because I do so. 2&y suggestion is to give
money to people who are in need of it because they
need it, and dont involve your feelings(. !orget about
worship, one should pay reverence to human life,
because all life is an experiencing existent thing, just
like 5,A; and thats all the motivation you should
need.
Bompassion should be every mans devotion,

something better you could possibly do with your
"short%time#3 Isnt there something you can do with
yourself other then read this3 0hat people forget is
that they are always doing something, even when
relaxing.
I have never seen a man achieve nothing, but I have
seen men wine and complain about not having enough
to do. So instead of looking for something to do, they
complain about boredom, making their task complete.
$his word boredom, should be taken right out of the
English language. 4oredom for me, means time to
think, time to find something to do. I dont even
bother using the word boredom, all that often, even
though it has been drilled into my head by people who
have asked me "are you bored3# when ever I am
placidly looking around or thinking to myself. I dont
know what it must be like to feel what boredom is
anymore.
$hose who use such a word to describe a state of
being, are complainers, and should invest some time
into becoming more satisfied with their precious
existence.
I do use boring, to describe things; but I do so to
mean, "this is intolerable,# or "I have better things to

do then this.# . thing becomes boring if it is no longer
appeasing, or makes my mind dull. !or me boredom is
just another word for fatigue; its not a state of doing.

Stupidity
$here are many demeaning words in the English
dictionary, all that supposedly create accurate
judgments, but the way we throw around these words
is ridiculous, and torments self%esteem.
Stupidity is a judgment of lack of intelligence. 0hen
one makes an error, they are normally thought of as
stupid. 0e are all suspect to error, to not doing things
the best possible way to fulfill interests of self or
other. $o be stupid is to '( act in contradiction to the
instructions or the plans 2self%made or made by
another( put in place. It may also mean to have )(
poor intelligence.
.ll people that are not born incompetent, or
imbeciles have the potential to use their brains to
achieve intelligence, and skill in several areas, and
excel in what they find the most fulfilling and fitting
for themselves. .ll they need is proper education, that
is training of the mind to fulfill a social role, which
keeps the social system productive and gives them
income to support themselves and their social
infrastructures.
Some one who is stupid has made a mistake, or
doesnt know how to apply themselves to the
instructions given. Stupidity, and intelligence should
not be taken so seriously. $he dumbest animals in the
42 Existential Fragments
world survive. $hats why dogs exist.
,ne of the main causes for stupidity is religious
indoctrination, it eliminates the importance of critical
thinking and it ensures society gets a steady supply of
compliant idiots.

!ntelligence

$here are people who are born with low cognitive
function that disables them from taking full
responsibility of themselves. In the future, hopefully
humans will devise ways in which to counteract this
misfortune.
$hose who arent born mentally disabled, have the
capacity to increase their intelligence by educating
themselves on proper, and standard subjects. .n
intelligent person is only one that applies to their
minds to reading, learning, and thinking through
strategies. 4ase intelligence, is only the counterpart in
being able to construct ideas, and think creatively.
$he world is constructed by good ideas, and so being
able to think in ways that benefit life, and add to its
greatness is the purpose of intelligence; it is a force of
nature that through consciousness has the power to
create and sustain human reality with increasing more
tact.
$he evolution of intelligence in human beings is our
strongest skill. Breating tools, and combinations of
forms, human beings via intelligence have found for
themselves a place in the world, as not only human
beings with instinct, and impulses, but a place with
the ability to shape and care for the world.
44 Existential Fragments
$he world isnt really created but is rather shaped by
intelligence, and those whom welcome awareness of
its shape, are care takers of the earth, as each person
should strive to be in their own way.
45 Existential Fragments
"ypocrisy
$he existentialist may act with life detrimental
actions, but, will be aware of this, and know the
conse+uences, and not live in the ignorant island of
delusional glee, and advocate those choices.
$hough seemingly hypocritical, it is of no shame,
when the advocating of an action is good. . smoker
that advocates non%smoking, is trying to do so because
of the detrimental results of smoking, not because he
smokes. . woman who has three children, who says
"dont have more than one,# and carries on with that
advice, is not as hypocritical as she is experienced,
and isnt saying dont have children because she does,
but because of the results.
;ypocrites may live in contradiction to their own life
philosophy, but if their philosophy is in fact virtuous,
their hypocrisy is made less severe. =eople who have
done things, and come through with a negative idea of
what they have done, only have because they have
done it.
46 Existential Fragments
Racism
&en who are racist attach way too much of their
identification powers with the color of their skin. Each
person is colored, but we all have different ethic
backgrounds.
Everyone has their place, and each thing should be
respected with the utmost care, without having it
severely hinder self%sufficiency. .ll races have e+ual
entitlement to live, and pursue the lifestyle they want
to live, as soon as they are born.
,nly people insecure about their own identities
mock, and bring down people for what their ancestors
have done.
$hose who see other races as "problems# to social
progress, or social stability, do not respect the
diversity that makes life deep with meaning.
. one race dominance is a world lacking in depth,
one that is pallid, and sickly, like a song that plays the
same notes over and over, and rejects all attempts at
bringing in a new chord.
47 Existential Fragments
Age
$ime passes, and as it does the body goes through
stages of aging, from young to old. $here is a great
chasm between the young and the old. $he old are
always in shackles of the care of the young, and the
very young, are always in the shackles of the care of
the old.
It would be best to seek unity among people of all
ages. Each stage of life is important in the growth of
the soul.
0hen it comes to actual age, a person is mentally an
age, and physically an age, and then there is the age of
the energy they are made up of, which happens to
have no social value; probably because all energy is
the same age.
=hysical aging is seen in the features of a person.
Dray hair, and sagging facial features, are sign of old
age.
Detting older is also something that most young
adults fear. 5ounger people should be instilled with
reverence for being old. =hysical aging is calculated
by calender dating, which is calculated by orbit of the
earth around the sun. 4eing old, isnt all that bad, but
with such a high value placed on appearance, it seems
to scare a lot of people.
&ental aging7 &aturity is best graded on
48 Existential Fragments
responsibility, and self%sufficiency.
$he infant and toddler age is the most immature
stage of human life, and this stage is sometimes
entered into later on in extreme old age. &aturity
should be thought of as a seriousness towards others,
and towards ones own life. 4eing serious doesnt have
to exclude times of being playful, or being joyful, or
doing unpredictably spontaneous things.
$he difference between an infant and a mature
person, is the mature person has gained self%
sufficiency. &aximi-ing this variable increases
maturity.

49 Existential Fragments
Time
8eality is a succession of events, we call it time. I am
no more then a creature caught up in that succession
of events, with other creatures, most who have better
things to do then think about time. $here is no
escaping events, no transcending time, because
everything, every single thing you can think up, is
actually part of an event.
/ife is also one big game of hide%and%go%seek. Every
event that you dont predict coming is a surprise,
especially when something hiding bursts out and lets
you know its there as if it werent possible. Surprises
arent just big events that appear out of nowhere,
because nowhere in somewhere, doesnt exist, its
subjective, it just means not in my current line of
attention.
Surprises can be any moment in life where you just
stop thinking about what will happen next.
5ou can think of everything as a surprise, or you can
know that whatever event you were experiencing was
doomed to happen. $his conflict, the temporary and
the permanence, to handle lifes endeavors, can be of
some use. In times of pain, one can think the moments
passing, in times of "glory# one can think the
moments permanent; at least I find this wisdom
50 Existential Fragments
useful.
"I begin to see that self and other, the familiar and
the strange, the internal and the external, the
predictable and the unpredictable imply each other.

!nfinite and finite
(verything has infinite nature, and momentary stabilization
of structure ma+es things seem to have finite existence as
form.
&an is part of a universe, which is an infinite
processing of events. 4y infinite, I dont mean to say
that the universe is infinite in space, but only infinite
in time, in duration. Infinite time, is a duration that
has itself no end, and no true beginning, only phases
of itself.
&an is a finite incarnation, a finite part of the infinite
time. If time is not infinite, then all came from a point
in which time, and energy did not exist, that is to say,
all came from a nothing; which only means that all is
nothing, because a result proceeds a cause 2how much
studying can we do of that +uality(. Instead of ex%
nihilo, 2out of nothing( one should think of the
universe as a continuous self created whole, making
itself from itself. It can be seen in the movement of
the planets, which move without any means of
stopping, it can be seen in the stars which circle the
center of galaxies, and it can be seen at the atomic
level, where the spin of electrons is almost perpetual.
*othing else is doing these things besides the
universe. $here is no need to add an additional
52 Existential Fragments
variable exterior that interacts with the forces causing
them to exist, when existence is self has enough
power to maintain its own uniformity.
Everything which is, is truly a larger finite. $he

being. $he micro, the self%observable, and the macro.
0ithout the macro, man would not be, without the

$hat which exists by necessity is the result of a
previous event.
0hen a man makes his own event, and stops half
way, and asks if it is by necessity or not, he is bound
to get confused. ;owever, the introduction of the

behind the result of his asking.
0hen one pours water into a vat the exchange of

offer resources.
. man pouring water into a vat, may stop middle
way, and ask, "is it my necessity that I pour the rest of
the water in or necessity that I stop pouring it in.# ;e
does not reali-e that he is the maker of the necessity,
that is to say he controls the out come by use of
intention.
&an, when not acting on his own needs, should not
act by necessity but by reason. If all results are
necessity then so too are the acts which bring them
about.
. man given two options about one thing should not
act on necessity which is cause and effect alone, but
on reason 2intent( which comes to the man through
judgment.
62 Existential Fragments
$o act on necessity man can ask the necessity of
acting, and ask the necessity of asking, and son on ad%

. man who acts by reason makes the reason itself the
reason why he acts, even though there may be a
reason for the reason why he acted.
$he difference between a cause and a reason is that
cause can result in something having never been made
aware of, but a reason is a cause that sets itself in the
mind and is thus judged as good or bad or possible or
not possible to be acted upon.
. cause without judgment is not a reason. 8eason is
to say "I acted because,# cause is to say, "It happened
because.#
0hen a cause is invested with will 2self%
determination( it becomes a reason, or else it is purely
a cause. 4oth happen by necessity, which is only to
say, happen by something which determines them.
. man who acts by reason normally does so as to
reach a targeted outcome.
"I sit,# to be sitting. "I eat# to be full. 0hen man
doesnt act with target in mind he looses sight of the
reason for his action, and thus can become confused.

&otus of control
Either the environment controls you, or you control
the environment.
!or example7 . man in chains is controlled by the
environment, because his body is not allowed to make
movements, and a man who is running free, has no
apparent chains except determinism.
$he mind can think to do one thing, and likely
denounce doing that thing; in this his will is "free.#
If a mans "means# 2environmental resources( dont
allow for him to do something, then he +uestions his
freedom, and his will power is snuffed if he has a
desire but can not achieve its ends, for desire is the
search for fulfillment, the proof of his freedom.
&an should not seek to always control the
environment, but rather should seek to allow himself
to "do# without having to think about what he is
doing, from time to time.
@nowing what you are doing, doesnt necessary
effect what youre doing. .wareness of how your

that each thing is a segment of what the universe is, as
in each ink dot in this book is the makeup of this

I think people who are afraid of admitting they are
the universe, think that they suddenly are bestowed
with incredible power if they admit it; wrong, youre
still energy like everything else, still a living breathing
person whether you think "I am not,# or "I am.# Every

;uman power isnt even about your being, its about
your popularity, your ability to get into other peoples

Each animal is different for a reason, its a function of

'an and thought
$here are three approaches a man can take toward life
when it comes to thinking about it7 Ignorance, piety,
and in+uiry. $hese three &an uses with differing
extent, nonetheless a man is apt to use one more then
another, and from this usage his approach to wisdom
can be judged.
. man of piety but lacking in+uiry is like the dog
who acts without knowing why, or for what purpose.
. man of piety is not a friend of in+uiry if he fears
doubting himself. . man can be be pious to truth, or
his religion, and still be an in+uiring mind, but if he is
not willing to change his thought upon his in+uiry,
when it comes to gaining knowledge, he makes little
use of it.
. man who is overly pious, and in+uires of other
beliefs may do so as to defame them, mock them, and
make his own superior in his attempts.
$he -ealot in+uires to fuel his own -eal, and makes
in+uiry a sour product.
. pious man who in+uires, and learns, is the best sort
of man for his mind is not ruled by devotion alone but
by reason for his devotion; and is always able to
change his thought if reason shows itself to him.
0hen reason can change a mans thought he is
70 Existential Fragments
reasonable.
.n ignorant man is usually selfish in kind, who is
content in not intervening in such deep thought as
philosophy would cause.
1eep thought, means to be more involved with life,
and ignorance can stop this depth in its possible
emergence. Ignorant men, mind their own business,
and in+uiry very little. ;e is pious to himself, and is in
no wrong for doing so, but he may find that his lack of
wisdom and his ignorance toward it causes him
uncertainty, of which he may or may not ignore being
he is a usurer of ignorance.
.n in+uiring mind without certainty is like a scared
horse, continuously shocked by the loud din of doubt.
.n in+uiring man should be respectful and pious
toward knowledge, for it is this reason in+uiry even
exists, it is the path to wisdom.

Existentialism vs% Egotism
.n existential humanist, is very unlike other human
beings, only because the existentialist profoundly
knows that every decision and behavior which is put
into phenomenal reality, by a matured will, is socially
interconnected to other phenomena. $he existentialist
does not live, only for its own individuality, as some
egotists do, but reali-es two truths about themselves,
and the decisions they make. '( ones individuality is
not alien from social or exterior forces. )( that ones
individuality effects other individuals. In knowing
theses two existential principles the individual is not
forfeiting their individual personality, nor their
individual will, but +uite assuredly continues to have
this notion, and conceptuali-e their own will, which
they so generate in life. $heir individuality, and their
will, is strengthened by their individuality, so
available to know and interact with in the social
world.
In much the same way the existentialist sees a hand,
arm, and eye, dependent on the whole organism, they
can think of their own existence as part of the social
organism, and modify their intentions for species
centered ends, instead of selfish ends. .s one can act
for the well%being of themselves and other one act in
particular analy-ed ways for a conceived betterment
72 Existential Fragments
of species living conditions.
0ith a greater population to think about, comes
greater existential species oriented responsibility $he
existentialist at first may take this responsibility as
burden, but a humanistic and intelligent existentialist
transmutes it into personal fulfillment gaining
purpose, pleasure, and self%actuali-ation from their
contributions,what ever they think them to be.
$he existential humanist, is unlike others,
specifically egotists, who have only their pleasure in
mind, and can be disgusted by others. Egotists are
dysfunctional, as is the eye, hand, arm, without mind,
and visa%versa.
Existentialists reali-e that egotists are a part of the
social organism, too, and openly analy-e and
smoothly apprehend why egotists are the individuals
they have been conditioned or chosen to be. ;owever,
chosen egotism for existentialists, is thought of as a
rarity. ;ow could anybody possibly live as a social
out%cast for their own good, completely ignoring how
they are related to everything3
!or the existentialist all is relation. Even
understanding ones individuality is a matter of
cogni-ant relationship, so how can egotists even
exist3 /et alone exist by choice3 It would be
unfathomable, and is why egotism is thought of as a
rarity. Bonditioned egotism, is much like any
73 Existential Fragments
conditioned view of the world, and is just another
version of religious fundamentalism so justified by
blind ignorance and unscrupulous indoctrination.
,ne reason a philosophically minded egotists may
abjure species oriented responsibility is by
rationali-ing it away with apprehension of the amount
of other humans that exist in the world. "Since there is
so many why should I care about the welfare of
others3# 0ould that egotist suddenly turn altruistic if
it and a few individuals were on the brink of
extinction3 0hy would a number be sufficient reason
to act in accordance with excessive selfishness, which
if naturally passed on with few individuals would
increase the probability of the extinction of
civili-ation. $his is to ask, why advocate what could
be considered extinction thought patterns, if they
could be naturally selected to genetically intensify>3
0hat kind of person could possible choose egotism3
Stupidity is e+uate to believing an idea is beneficial
when it is detrimental. &aybe it is, that egotists are
animals with memes or genetic inclinations that are
life%detrimental, and are ignorantly stupid bound to go
extinct in a socially oriented global organism. .s the
existentialist reali-es there are some geneses, memes,
people not adapted to what their environment
demands, variables that are on bitter ends of an
altruistic evolutionary process; where of course, some
74 Existential Fragments
variable has to be in our evolution. $he egotists, is
oblivious to this spectrum, and has been oblivious to
environmental demands, so actuali-ed in nations
starving to death. $he egotist is more concerned with
their own reproduction, and rarely how it effects the
child, and the social body. $he existentialist reali-es
this is all part of reality, and can come to peace with it,
nevertheless, knowing the evolutionary benefits of
rationally and smartly acting with altruistic side%
effects in mind, or speculation a glance away.
Existentialists do accept the ego exists, but dont
make purpose or a life of living for their own alone. .
belief that thinks itself purely of ego origin is a belief
that is encapsulated in ignorance, sometimes to
provide beneficial concentration, other times to
provided stupidity. Existentialists accept ignorance as
a very detrimental force of the human psyche, and
reason of its benefits, and its faults. Such benefits and
faults are judged or evaluated according to how
ignorance effects social disarray. $his awareness of
ignorance is what makes the existentialist a being
living closer to truth or certainty of how reality can
be, than the egotist.

is a tube. Something goes into one side, and comes

that thing which it needs to come out the other side so
as to conserve its form and mobility. If we didnt have
mouths, life couldnt eat, wed still be stones, laying

it is able to move itself.
*ow that we understand how eating works, in a very
estrange propositional description, the +uestion still
remains why does life reproduce3
Sex, it perpetuates the form of life. Sex is basically
the polar opposite of death. If life didnt have sex,
there would only be extinction. ,ne reason why sex is
pleasurable is so as to avoid the falling back of form
into inanimate matter. If sex didnt exist, then there
would be nothing to oppose death. $he opposite of
death is life, and where pleasure can exist, energy
structures will strive toward it.
It may also be concluded that without pleasure itself,
there would be no experience of being. =eople like to
think that they need sex, they have to have some kind
of pleasure. 0ell, all pleasure is eventual. Ecstasy will
occur, there is no hiding from it, because the whole
universe is ecstatic; if it wasnt there wouldnt be life,
just a pool of energy, like a slim. $he world blossoms,
it celebrates itself, and thats what life should be
thought of as a celebration.

&an covers himself up in cloth and tries to hide his
sexuality. 1ressing up in clothes, can be an

nakedness that is more arousing, so man covers it up,
because if heCshe was to walk around nude all the
time, every one would live in a state of arousal, and
that can not work, it can not be, because everything

&aking nakedness not appropriate, and even down

Stringent religious demeaning of the body causes

1emeaning the body is the cause of sexual insecurity,
which then causes the sexually insecure to demean
sexuality. $hus sexual association with negative input

In a civil world, sexual indulgence is just as
demeaning to the body as shame of it. Sexual
indulgence is the reverse of sexual demeaning. Instead
of thinking of the body as something to cover, those
who are sexually explicit think of the body as
something to flaunt.
4eing pressured into thinking that the body is a
sexual object only, can cause problems for young
adults whom are trying to enter a relationship. Such
problems encountered are the same as in demeaning
the body, because not all women and men, have
bodies that meet the standards for sexual
attractiveness.
$he social pressure, to be of sexual acceptance

disorder, etc.. &oderation is always key when it
comes to things that contrast one another, not too

Each child still has potential to become a full

we invent, but rather is something we are endowed
with, with proper education.
Bhildren who focus more on education are normally
the book%worms, and focus more on learning then
sociali-ation. $hose who get low grades focus more
on acceptance, and sociali-ation.
Some children who are graded badly compensate for
their low grades by desiring to have social acceptance,
and thus act out in class to achieve attention, creating
even lower graded performance. $his compensation

Utopia
It would seem the simplest way to gain utopia, is for
the irresponsible, cruel, and severely impoverished
people to make the conscious choice to not have
children; but that choice would be unlikely, given
their irresponsibility 2so induced by social
infrastructures(.
$hose living in a state of misery, where they are
shorted vital essentials are likely to make up for the
displeasure by having more sex, thus increasing
accidental child%birth or child%birth with little thought
of what it means to have a child lacking the means to
raise the child to become a pristine citi-en and sturdy
link in the the economic web.
$he choice to not have children is a simple one,
especially if a person is capable of comprehending
what parent%hood is for the human race, and not just
for the self. In the modern world, sexual satisfaction,
and parent%hood can be two different things.
Instead of giving money to charity, to help others
raise children, people are prone to have their own
children, and spend that money to raise them.
$he purpose of reproduction is to '( increase the
population, providing society with a citi-en )( to pass

108 Existential Fragments
$he population doesnt need increasing, it needs
direction, unity, and self%sacrifice for the efficiency of
the whole. Soon, with the advent of genetic therapy, it
wont need your excellent genes. !ulfillment that
comes from parenting can come from other social
efforts.
=arents with problems, create children with
problems, which cause social problems. . society can
not be free of problems because there will always be
those people that think rebelling 2breaking the law(
will do something, satisfy some urge, make up for

$he second way to achieve utopia is by providing all
people with state inheritance paid monthly, 2not
welfare( to meet their needs.
=overty is the only thing that hinders a society, and it
is caused foremost by bad education, and secondly by
bad social upkeep by rulers in society.
=roviding people with what they need to work 2jobs,
cars, ethicalCarithmetical education(, should be the
goal of every state ruler on a world%wide scale, and in
doing so utopia would be created.
If people cant get jobs, they should at least be given
enough money so as to allow other people to work.
0ithout work, life is pretty drab, and should be made
that way if society needs more people to fill
occupations to maintain social integrity.
109 Existential Fragments
$he elimination of poverty with the continued
progress of society is the essence of utopia. $o live is
very simple, its sleep%safely 2peace(, work with
satisfaction 2joy(, learn with awe 2curiosity(, eat to
solve hunger.
;ow it is so hard to optimally maintain these four
simple conditions for living is beyond me; none%the%
less being able to offer these conditions continuously,
and with regulation, for all people can create a
moderate utopian state.
Such a state would not be introduced making one
large leap into the new system, but would have to
undergo testing to demonstrate its efficiency, and
would have to be slowly integrated.
,ne of the main problems getting in the way of a
utopian sate is indoctrination, which cripples, and
impedes possible intellectual development. Dranting
students with text%books that are both religious and
philosophically elucidating is a way to make people
more responsible, analytical, and over all more
intelligent.
;aving occupations that people lacking intelligence
can do, shouldnt be a reason to simply dismiss
treating each mind as e+ual to the top social standards
of intellectual mentality.
Educational ine+uality is to cripple the students in
the long run, and keep society from its possible
110 Existential Fragments
efficient progression rate; thus those teachers who are
responsible for not providing e+ual education for
members of their class, cripple society.
