Why It’s Folly To Design Your Own “Lifestyle”

In my mid 20’s I bought the idea that I could create my own lifestyle from scratch, not based on consultations from wise men or guidance from church and family, but from my own desires. After years of work, I successfully created a lifestyle that satisfied the desires I had in that particular stage of […]

The Novelty Wheel

Many men are doing things they think are giving meaning and fulfillment when actually they’re merely experiencing entertainment for the short term. If you’ve ever gotten bored of something that used to excite you or make you happy, you have discovered an activity that not only has served little benefit to you, but also taken you […]

Are We Alive To Only Survive And Reproduce?

Every ideology has a corresponding narrative that attempts to explain the world to its adherents while giving them a basic blueprint of how to live.

Are We Living In A Computer Simulation?

The strangest thing to ever happen to me took place in Tomsk, a Russian Siberian city. A week into my stay there, I bought a neon orange toothbrush to replace an old toothbrush. Some two weeks later I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth but the toothbrush was gone. It completely disappeared. Looking […]
