philosophic inquiry into life and meaning

...if truth were not for man the desire for truth would not be as a burning unrest in his heart...

I alternate between feeling my energy low and then, as it is now, build back up to a kind of frenzy where I focus on my goals and they are checked off one-by-one.


The only way to get anything done is to stop doing things that interfere. If I want to write up and type up notes and articles then idle browsing of ezines and technology news sites must be stopped. Priorities must be set and the search is always first...except when survival is right in my face. Survival in this modern world means having and keeping a job to continue paying bills. It would be nice to give up all of that but that means facing discomfort and is possibly very foolish when a job can support the search rather than interfere with it.


The best job might be one where we're paid in free time. The more work you do the more free time you get (assuming basic physical needs of food and shelter are met). This would allow the greatest part of our time for contemplation rather than frenzied doing. There is never enough time.
