Also, I've wondered this for some time,and I thought this would be a good place to ask it.
I know this post is supposed to be only text,but as far as I remember,links are allowed,right?
I created that post about 2 weeks ago mostly out of curiosity.

Rudiii whatís the poverty situation like where you live? I know the country is poor but do the vulnerable suffer? I just watched a video about poverty in my country and it was upsetting. Even though we are a Ďrichí country, there have been political decisions that have caused the vulnerable to suffer a lot.

If life was a car... many people would say how to handle the situation. Me personally if life were a car I'd just get out of it.

If you think of your Chart as vehicle for living your life, what sort of vehicle would it be? Mine is like a sailboat with an auxiliary engine for emergency situations.

Mine would be a bucket with a wooden spoon as a paddle. But the bucket would be made by Cadillac and the spoon by Calvin Klein (when a Pluto moon is the bucket, Jupiter being in there is the branding, and capricorn is the enigma that makes those brands the one I chose).

Not a submarine, then? Maybe you could upgrade to a Cadillac canoe with a Calvin Klein canoe paddle.

I thought a little shave with an Occam's razor could have resulted in a better article. Moderation in all things, including both simplicity and complexity.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

Want to hear something crazy.
I made my name on this sight when I was oiss drunk tired, that name lead to many conversations, which lead me to where I am in astrology but also shaped my remaining years of highschool, the name lead to discussions of what career I'll choose, that literally blows my mind.

If I never chose my name here at midnight **** drunk tired I wouldn't be going to the best culinary institution in the world like I am today.

Well,it's pretty complicated....Some poor people don't even receive financial help(or very little),and others who are faking it(they're inventing various excuses to not work),and these guys mainly receive more than poor people.Of course,the poor ones with many children generally gain more money from the government(that's one of the criteria)
But poverty is caused by the corruption,the political situation in my country.That's why many are leaving,especially young people.We sadly have one of the biggest diasporas in the world,even though we are only 19 million(we used to be 21/22)
I personally don't want to leave,my country has good parts too,but everyone my age is bragging about it,so...

Has anyone read "How to Solve It" by George Polya? My father insisted I read it when I was about 14. Gave me some good grounding in practical thinking.

Once you get used to the savage deconstructive tenor of philosophy of science applied rigorously to popular media and threateningly present-tense institutional corruption, most are pretty fun.

Try the foundational idea, https://theethicalskeptic.com/2012/0...al-skepticism/

And this exemplar that so refreshingly disposes of most of what is passed off as journalism: https://theethicalskeptic.com/2018/1...gency-at-play/

He takes risk seriously which has to be coated in profanity or something like it to skirt the psychopaths at the gate.

I looked up Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Interesting and powerful sounding man, I like what I see summarized regarding his life's work. I'm going to go search around for his writings to get a more in-depth understanding of the kinds of ideas he's put forward.

One thing that I can give the Theosophists credit for is that they understand that a person can be working class in the most "mundane" professional field and still be guided by the "white brotherhood". There isn't any unnecessary divorcing of the two spheres at all. There's also schools of thought that raise being "nice" and inoffensive to the highest virtue, and anybody showing an edge simply isn't evolved or spiritually advanced enough. I wonder how such people would fair underneath the auspices of some of the legendary Zen masters and other "crazy wisdom" teachers.

Here's a conspiracy theory: A secret league of Virgoan astronomers got together and managed to demote Pluto to dwarf-planet status for not cleaning its orbit!

Heís famous for Black Swan but I like the concepts of Antifragile. He certainly could have used a tougher editor, as David suggested, but itís the ideas that matter, and they do work in you in a crazy wisdom kind of way when heís polished them. That is, the lashes seem justifiable. His work is probably all on libgen.

Another lasher I enjoyed reading was Schopenhauer. I remember having a belly laugh after what I saw him write about I think it was Hegel. You're a talented writer if your hatred still zings after 200 years. His Mars conj. asc really shines through.

Just found out I had an angular Uranus with .08 degrees of the vertex. Unconsciously Uranus should have been my name I guess. Also for all those who guessed an Aquarian nature, my bad you were very correct.
