Importantly of all, magical book Daring Do doesn't know she's in a book because then you can do episodes with her in the real world. They need her help, for whatever reason, and bring her into the real world and all the existentialism that brings.

@Iannitram You're interesting. You give a philosofical twist. NIIIICE. Just saw a TNP of Buffy.
Interesting. (BUT. Talking about existentialism. Sartre was a socialist, marxist...). L'enfer c'est les autres? SO. Socialism is egoism...? That's what he says.

Going beyond God.
The God of this universe materialised the power of Command Be to have formed this world and the creation. And this power was granted to him by the foremost authority, the original master: the God of all Gods!

As today is the final day to visit #DerekJarmanPROTEST! we invite you to listen back to IMMA curator Seán Kissane who presented a lecture titled 'Irresistible Grace: Tracing Alchemy, Existentialism and Literature across three decades of painting'.
Accepting the truth is not just about accepting what you don’t know, but accepting that you might be further down the hierarchy than you think. It’s accepting that you might have less power than you think, and hold the position of a victim. We all are more powerless, in society, than we know. To accept our truth, rather than the illusion that everything is fine, is the hardest thing for the majority. We believe the lies to prevent the true realisation of how fucked we are.
The Employed Moth
The human mind is a trickster.
We veil ourselves in order to not be transparent to our own judgment, while we still are quick to judge other people.
Perhaps we do this to be able to live with ourselves, even though we are flawed and inadequate?
Nevertheless, we should reflect on this, and calmly ask ourselves when we judge another person: Wheter we might not have done the same in his/her situation.
Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was a british author, literary critic, feminist and modern thinker.
Most known books include; "mrs. Dalloway",
"To the lighthouse" and "Orlando".
Woolf's childhood came to an abrupt end in 1895 with the death of her mother and her first mental breakdown, followed two years later by the death of her stepsister and a mother figure to her, Stella Duckworth.
From 1897 to 1901, she attended the Ladies' Department of King's College London, where she studied classics and history and came into contact with early reformers of women's higher education and the women's rights movement.
Other important influences were her Cambridge-educated brothers and unfettered access to her father's vast library.
Encouraged by her father, Woolf began writing professionally in 1900.
Her father's death in 1905 caused another mental breakdown for Woolf.
She became deeply troubled, and eventually developed a mental illness.
Woolf is considered to be one of the most important twentieth century novelists.
A modernist, she was one of the pioneers of using stream of consciousness as a narrative device, and her reputation was at its greatest during the 1930s.
Tragically she committed suicide in 1941, at the beginning of WW2, by walking into a river with her pockets filled with rocks
Her writings have in later times been studied through a feministic lens, as well as being studied with a focus on mental health.
The thing is to understand myself:
the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die.
That is what I now recognize as the most important thing. —Søren Kierkegaard.
Repost due to wrong image*
Søren Aabye Kierkegaard (1813 – 1855) was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author who is widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher.
He wrote critical texts on organized religion, Christendom, morality, ethics, psychology, and the philosophy of religion,
displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and parables.
Much of his philosophical work deals with the issues of how one lives as a "single individual", giving priority to concrete human reality over abstract thinking and highlighting the importance of personal choice and commitment.
He was against literary critics who defined idealist intellectuals and philosophers of his time, and thought that Swedenborg, Hegel, Fichte, Schelling, Schlegel and Hans Christian Andersen were all "understood" far too quickly by "scholars".
Kierkegaard's early work was written under the various pseudonyms that he used to present distinctive viewpoints and to interact with each other in complex dialogue.
He explored particularly complex problems from different viewpoints, each under a different pseudonym.
Some of Kierkegaard's key ideas include the concept of "subjective and objective truths", the knight of faith, the recollection and repetition dichotomy, angst, the infinite qualitative distinction, faith as a passion, and the three stages on life's way.
Kierkegaard wrote in Danish and the reception of his work was initially limited to Scandinavia, but by the turn of the 20th century his writings were translated into French, German, and other major European languages.
By the mid-20th century, his thought exerted a substantial influence on philosophy, theology, and Western culture.
Perfection is not an art as such there is not much aesthetics of success. Rather a chronology of innumerable failed milestones standing across the gruesome journey of practice... (5/N)
From one of my writing - "Laplacians of Existentialism".
Thought a proper introduction was in order... 🦋
Lenore Robinson is my pen name, and it's an homage to #edgarallanpoe and my grandmother. I have the incredible honor of being published alongside several other amazing authors in the third installment of an anthology collection, forthcoming from @madeinlawriters this April. I've lived in #losangeles for about a year, but am originally from the Appalachian south.
My writing is heavily inspired by existentialism, and I enjoy reading authors who weave these concepts into their writing -- Cormac McCarthy, Faulkner, and Steinbeck to name a few... and most recently Joe Hill (I've been meaning to pick up a copy of Horns for years!). I like to experiment with points-of-view, alliteration, manipulating time/flashback, and poetic descriptions.
By day I'm a web developer and digital marketer, and I started my own company in 2016. I also design and build websites for authors, which I'm so excited to share more about in the coming weeks!

"Soren" is a Danish given name originating from Latin Severinus, derived from severus "severe, strict, serious". Søren Kierkegaard was a nineteenth-century philosopher and theologian whose work was the foreground for twentieth-century existentialism.
However, more recently, drug use has become about finding a durable, lengthier, existential escape – a desire that is awfully close to self-obliteration.https://twitter.com/aeonmag/status/1231549480031412224 …
The streets of Lutyens Delhi have also been blocked around HM's house. Why noone is talking about that. If the security of a HM is so important, then what about the fear, threat, intimidation and existentialism crisis of Citizens who are only protesting to be heard.
Don’t listen when people tell you that your childhood, or high school years, are your best. They live in the past and dream of a better time. They regret their current situation and the life they’ve created. They resent themselves for failing the dreams they once had. The best time to live is now, and we have the power, at any moment, to influence it however we choose. When we live authentically, we don’t yearn for the past: we live in the present and create the future. But most importantly, we don’t feel the guilt, conscious or subconscious, of a wasted life.

#AskYounusAlGohar – Is The Religion of God a New Religion? http://www.goharshahi.us/articles/view/askyounusalgohar-is-the-religion-of-god-a-new-religion/ ‘O’ Prophet, when The Religion of God is established in the world, then turn your face towards it because it is the religion of the future. All other religions will be wiped out but the majority of human beings are unaware of this.’ [Koran 30:30]

If one comes across something that is in opposition to one's current understanding, one should (after careful thinking and reflection) embody that knowledge, even though it might be painful.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a german philologist known for his groundshaking philosophical thoughts.
His father was a priest who died from a brain illness, and Nietzsche would soon become perhaps the most acclaimed critic of christianity.
In 1887 he encountered the work of Fyodor Dostoyevsky, to whom he felt an immediate kinship.
He also exchanged letters with Hippolyte Taine and Georg Brandes.
Brandes, who had started to teach the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard in the 1870s, wrote to Nietzsche asking him to read Kierkegaard's works, to which Nietzsche replied that he would come to Copenhagen and read it with him.
However, before fulfilling this promise, he slipped too far into illness.
Despite Nietzsches critic of religion, he still foresaw a catastrophe from the vacuum left from christianity - The 20th century.
Today, Nietzsche is considered one of the greatest thinkers in history, and his work has had a great impact on many fields such as: Philosophy, theology and art.
Sometimes, during a conversation or an argument, we realize that our feelings are rejected. This is the time to put the Emotional Twist plan to action:
1: Establish our feelings – don’t hide them or think it’s better not to have these feelings.
2: Now it’s time for the emotional twist – take the side of truth. Accept the ground of your feelings. Being in the ‘right’ is solid ground for existence. Only then can we push forward.
3: ‘Borrow’ emotions from the therapist. The therapist can tell us their feelings on the matter. We can react to it with our own feelings. Then, the ‘doors’ for the treatment of problems are opened.
AI and automation however pose a deeper issue on existentialism which seemingly seems to be solvable through AI. Humans crave novelty and complexity - the main problem being novelty.

"What about the main thing in life, all its riddles? If you want, I'll spell it out for you right now. Do not pursue what is illusionary -property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade, and is confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life -don't be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn for happiness; it is, after all, all the same: the bitter doesn't last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. It is enough if you don't freeze in the cold and if thirst and hunger don't claw at your insides. If your back isn't broken, if your feet can walk, if both arms can bend, if both eyes can see, if both ears hear, then whom should you envy? And why? Our envy of others devours us most of all. Rub your eyes and purify your heart -and prize above all else in the world those who love you and who wish you well. Do not hurt them or scold them, and never part from any of them in anger; after all, you simply do not know: it may be your last act before your arrest, and that will be how you are imprinted on their memory". — Solzhenitsyn.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) was a Russian novelist, philosopher, historian, short story writer and political prisoner.
He was an outspoken critic of the Soviet Union and Communism and helped to raise global awareness of its Gulag labor camp system.
Solzhenitsyn was put in the GULags after serving for the red army in world war 2.
There, he spent many years under harsh conditions.
During his imprisonment he wrote in secret and managed to smuggle out some of his works.
The novel, Gulag Archipelago was THE work that highlighted what was actually happening in the Soviet-Union.
In 1970 he recieved the Nobel Prize in litterature for "The etichal force with which he had pursuaded the indespensable traditions of russian literature".
He was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974, but returned to Russia in 1994 after the Union's collapse.
Solzhenitsyn died from heart failure at the age of 89.
