This is the first "blog" of any kind I've ever had, so it's probably not the greatest...

Just a little snippet about me:

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech-savvy; obviously I use Linux (Arch to be precise; K.I.S.S. FTW), and I enjoy learning new things about computers in general (both software and hardware-related).

This blog is mostly just for whenever I feel like telling the world about my experiences with computers/Linux (or just life in general), or just posting for the hell of it.
Existential Blabber Me going on and on about the universe and all its pointlessness and meaninglessness. I'm usually in a less-than-good mood when I write these. Don't read if you either a) have existential angst yourself, or b) get annoyed at someone going on and on

Why must I put up with this sh*t?

Yes, this is filed under "Existential Rants", but it's more of a general rant.

UFOs, aliens, "disclosure", gubmint conspiracies, etc...I can't stand it anymore!

My mother is utterly convinced that she's an "integral part" of some "spiritual mission" to "help the planet ascend"...yes...geniunely...no sh*t. On an almost daily basis I have to put up with her talking to friends over the phone about it all. It drives me...

Is ignorance really so bad?

...if it prevents you from going completely bat-sh*t insane?

I willfully avoid topics such as psychology and neuroscience. Why? Because if I actually studied them, they'd shred what last few bits of my worldview I desperately hold on to into tiny pieces. No, scratch that..they'd decimate them into proverbial subatomic particles.

Am I to be considered an "ignorant fool" because of this? Simply because I refuse to swallow the idea that nothing I do...

There is just too much out there, I believe...

I just got through reading a bunch of quotes from the fortune collection. Specifically, the results of fortune off/atheism.

...all I have to say is that it's too much. So many differing perspectives with only one thing in common: a lack of belief in a higher power (a "God", if you will). This isn't to say that I believe in a "God", as it were, but I'd like to think that there's some kind of meaning to life other than some hypothetical equation that explains...

Finally got a little perspective...maybe

As you may have guessed from my previous two posts, I've been constantly arguing with myself over the old (very old, apparently) "free will vs. determinism" debate. I've done a little more reading (not just on Wikipedia) about it, and I've come to realize that my perception that there's "determinism everywhere I go" is rather a false one. Sure, there are many scientific and philosophical theories which try to discredit free will as a viable reality, but at the same time, there...

Nothing more than a helpless pawn...

When one feels like a helpless pawn of the universe, what does one do?

Do they simply live life in ignorance of their pain, only letting it silently build up in the background?

Do they end their life, hoping that there is some higher, more meaningful existence "beyond the grave"?

Do they bitterly accept it, and live their lives as they feel they should, i.e. that they really aren't special, and that they really aren't "them", they're...
