First a nation, then a guru, then a parent, then a god. First, we should see the nation, not ourselves.

Sometimes I try to chase former glories from my past. However, that is a limited way of thinking because the past is already boxed up and defined. The future is a blank canvas and it has not been defined yet. My future is an undying shooting star. I hope y'all employ the future mindset gaze💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
Can we let go of our destructive obsession with truth? Of searching for ‘what’s true’? It’s not about determining that nothing’s true and becoming a nihilist, nor determining that all truth is relative and becoming a relativist, but just letting go of the whole idea of truth.
Allowing ourselves to not know what’s true.
What if philosophy books weren’t all about what’s true and what’s not true, but they were all about how unity is formed, how solidarity is formed, and how we can use language to do that? That was philosopher Richard Rorty’s vision.
Why could this be one of the most important cornerstones to happiness and contentment?
Because if I’m right, you’re wrong. If my country is right, your country is wrong. If my culture’s right, your culture’s wrong, etc. All conflict, wars, class struggles, largely occur or maybe wholly occur because of this split. But it’s so deeply ingrained in our culture, the idea that we wouldn’t be on a quest to discover what’s true, it’s hard to compute what that would look like.
What would the alternative be?
Richard Rorty starts to speak about an alternative.
So what if our culture wasn’t obsessed with discovering what’s true? What if it wasn’t obsessed with knowing that the inner experience we’re having wasn’t some kind of direct correlation with an outer reality that was separate from it?
But instead, what if our culture were more obsessed with generating solidarity among beings? What if what we were interested in was, how is my way of thinking, how is my way of speaking creating more unity among people, among animals, amidst the entire world? What would a society like that look like and how can we get there?

“Hell is empty
And all the devils are here” - Spoken by Ariel in Act 1 Scene 2 of William Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’
"Dostoevski said once:
"There is only one thing I dread:
not to be worthy of my sufferings." These words frequently came to my mind after I became acquainted with those martyrs whose behavior in camp, whose suffering and death, bore witness to the fact that the last inner freedom cannot be lost.
It can be said that they were worthy of the their sufferings; the way they bore their suffering was a genuine inner achievement.
It is this spiritual freedom—which cannot be taken away—that makes life meaningful and purposeful".
— Viktor E. Frankl, 'Man's Search for Meaning'.
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist, essayist, journalist and philosopher.
Born in Moscow in 1821, Dostoevsky was introduced to literature at an early age through fairy tales and legends, and through books by Russian and foreign authors.
His writings Explored human psychology in the 19th century's troubled political, social and spiritual atmosphere.
He is by many literary critics recognised as the greatest psychologists in literature.
He inspired great writers like Solzhenitsyn, Sartre, Nietzsche and Chekov.
Dostoevsky distinguished three "enormous world ideas" prevalent in his time:
Roman Catholicism, Protestantism and Russian Orthodoxy.
He claimed that Catholicism had continued the tradition of Imperial Rome and had thus become anti-Christian and proto-socialist, inasmuch as the Church's interest in political and mundane affairs led it to abandon the idea of Christ.
For Dostoevsky, socialism was "the latest incarnation of the Catholic idea" and its "natural ally".
He found Protestantism self-contradictory and claimed that it would ultimately lose power and spirituality.
He deemed Russian Orthodoxy to be the ideal form of Christianity.
Dostoevsky suffered a pulmonary haemorrhage, and died on the 9th of februray, 1881.
According to one reporter, more than 100,000 mourners were present, while others describe attendance between 40,000 and 50,000.
On this day in 1677, Dutch philosopher, early figure of the Enlightenment, and one of the great rationalist of the 17th Century, Baruch Spinoza, died in The Hague at age 44.

There is nothing in the world, I venture to say, that would so effectively help one to survive even the worst conditions, as the knowledge that there is a meaning in one’s life.

We are born with an incredible capacity to power through obstacles to reach unassailable heights
Do you agree with Seneca?
A lot of people suffer more that they need to because of the things they imagine will happen. Many of these things never turn into reality, but they suffer anyway because of the worry of imagined, fictionsl futures, problems, fears and struggles.
Some forward thinking is needed to prepare for the worst. However too much of this let's the future drag our mind into catastrophising and spirals of fear and doubt. Suffering before it is necessary means you suffer more than necessary. 🧠 find more practical philosophy through the link in our bio 👍 -

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

Groupthink is our tendency to agree with our peers even when we don’t agree in order to keep the harmony of the group. .
Example: Sally wants to go get ice cream. Jade wants to shop for T-Shirts. You suggest getting T-Shirts with pictures of ice cream on them.

Billy Eilish might be Illuminati, but when she sang ‘When we all fall asleep, where do we go?’ I felt that shit in my inner sad-boy philosopher soul 😫
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.

Happy birthday to German philosopher, known for his philosophical pessimism, Arthur Schopenhauer, born this day, 1788, in Danzig, Poland.

For 18th-century Irish philosopher George Berkeley, existence is tied to perception: to be is to be perceived.
Berkeley believed the world we observe exists only as a complex idea in our minds. If you look at a banana, for instance, you do not experience the ‘actual’ banana, rather you experience a bundle of sensations regarding light, shape, and color that your mind classifies as a banana.
Take our perceptions away, and what is left?

The relationship between concepts in the mind and matter or energy in the world is the relationship we refer to as “truth.”

The Story Observatory is a place to investigate and imagine the world through stories. Humans have always been telling stories, to make sense of the world, our place in it, our purpose and death. Within stories we preserve facts, insights, life lessons, morals and other types of knowledge.
So what exactly do I mean by ‘stories’? Stories are fundamentally human and flow from the human experience. They are not ‘objective’ descriptions of the world. Instead, they help us understand what the world is like for us. For example, we can tell different stories about a volcano. We might see it as a friend, gifting us fruitful earth, or as an enemy which has to be pleased. Neither of these stories can be proven with facts and neither is necessarily more ‘true’ than the other. Yet we need stories like these, because otherwise we can’t make sense of people dying when the volcano erupts.
