The Spectrum of Time

Posted in Thoughts and rants with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2011 by Eyeless

Time is light. In exchange for energy and illumination, the rays of the sun will drain your body and mind of time to learn what you have seen. Timelessness and eternity lies wherever light fails to illuminate your grounds. Hidden in sleep and shadow, one is also hidden from the limitations of time and age as life takes a halt to rest and think.

But since they both are part of a scale; as the sun revolves around the Earth, leaving the opposite side in darkness before returning with light again; we cannot solely rely on the other lest we wish for our minds to decline. Without the sands of time, one will soon figure out the curse of eternity, but without the veil of night one is cursed with sudden mortality. With one foot on each scale; one glance at the sun, receiving wisdom from the stars, followed by deep contemplation and philosophy in shielding darkness, one will establish a balance and harmony in philosophising and learning.

Whoever resides in complete darkness will lose themselves in the maze of their own thoughts, and whoever strays at all times in complete light will act without thought and eventually forget the deeper meaning of things. Revolve with the sun and the moon, live in harmony with their cycles and be aware of their positions as well as your own cycles and positions in life.

NOTE [September 28, 2011]: Upon reading this text once again (yes, I sometimes read my own blog posts) I feel that I’ve forgot to add something. Yeah, time is light; but light is vibrating energy waves. A chaotic state of chaos, or constant motion. Time is a mere measurement of movement between point A and point B; literally physical transformation. An electric impulse in the body or someone walking across the street. Lead turning into gold.

I long for Norrland. I cannot wait to get there soon.

The Designation of Morale

Posted in Thoughts and rants with tags , , , on June 7, 2011 by Eyeless

Does morale exist? Where? Morale only truly exists within the conscious mind of the human being; a constructed evaluator with which we judge opinions and acts of others as of ourselves. It is therefore a tool for interpreting the reality in which we exist. However, as with many things, humans tend to apply their judgement on people that might have different ways of thinking, without regards to their opinions.

On the one hand, where interpretation and judgement are impossible to avoid as they are constantly working in our minds and reacts as fast as the thought itself, morale is on the other hand created after interpretation, judgement and reaction, and is derived from the combination of the aforementioned values. Something that we actually (often) have to reflect upon before a valid value has been given us, and something that is in need of more complementary information sources.*

In this way morale might seem necessary as an additional interpreting device, but it may suddenly seem questionable as soon as we take a look at the functions of morale. It is an evaluator built upon the concept of good versus evil. With morale in mind, we weigh these two extremes against one another to determine what is morally acceptable and what is not.

Not only does morale concern the surroundings of oneself (and thus painting one’s surroundings with the colours of good and evil), but it also concerns the line and contrast between two extremes, which is seemingly hard to apply to reality, as one will quickly find out.

Also, morale fathoms the idea of a general opinion about good and evil and therefore does it not only ignore the opinion and judgement of those who are deemed “evil”, but it takes for granted a general agreement upon which behaviours are acceptable and what is not. Thus, having morale determine the value of one’s surrounding is like taking for granted that a majority holds the same opinion as oneself, even though no one that holds against one’s opinion is even concerned.

Morale might serve a purpose in the validation of oneself and the actions performed by the self, but as soon as it is applied to the surrounding world, morale only helps the generalization of living beings and deprive of them an opinion and voice of their own.

*Interpretation is dependent on a received message as well as experienced and learned information, while judgement is dependent on experience through situation and personal opinions and interests. Reaction is dependent on a received and interpreted message of information, filtered through a judgemental value. Morale is dependent on the sum of these, but is sometimes in need of a re-evaluation of situation, as well as an interpretation of personality and personal history of the sender (the source of the message which has been sent, received and interpreted), filtered through personal opinions and experience within the self, before a valid value can be given.
