Oh hai thur
Kittiwat Unarrom has a master’s degree in fine arts and, now makes life-like body parts out of bread at a bakery in Thailand. All the disturbing yeast sculptures are made out of dough, raisins, cashews and chocolate. He’ll also paint the outside with some sort of edible paint to give it an even more gruesome appearance. When asked why he does it, Kittiwat replied, “I’m a wackjob and I like making people sick”.
I’m impressed beyond words.
Do you ever struggle to figure out what the h is the purpose of being alive? It’s such a ridiculous mental block for me… What am I fighting for? I want things so much, but where does it all go?? Have you found a satisfactory answer? The only thing I keep coming to is survival of the species, but that’s still just personal purpose… Even so, it gives me a sort of comfort. My person was created to push for that goal, so good feelings are given in exchange for completion of that goal. Ugh, just writing this leaves me in such doubt… I’m just about ready to give in and be satisfied with that and push the question of what exactly it is that the species as a whole is looking for out of my mind… Do you think we’re just not built as individuals to be able to comprehend the struggle of every living thing? WHY, GODDAMNIT????
Also, art. What’s up with that? Why do you think it is that we evolved to start creating such things like that or do you think it’s just a side effect of a higher functioning mind? Same question for music, which is more applicable to you anyway… I guess you can write off music as a primal development perhaps to better attract mates? Everybody always talks about how much poontang musicians get, after all. Maybe it shows the raw potential of a mind’s creativity to somehow advance the species. Visuals are such an interesting way to look at an individual’s perspective of things. Maybe art’s just become too individual of a thing to be able to base mate potentiality on. Artists seem to be on the ass end of society in this cultures, tho. I guess in America their talents aren’t really seen as a benefit to society. Why do you think that is? No immediate benefit?
Everybody has a certain medium through which they can best benefit society. Maybe just existing and loving can end up having an impact later on that will completely change the course of life. I feel most comfortable by trying to advance by evolving the mind, so I’d like to make my main medium knowledge. I benefit the species through research, people through health care. To make the most impact to the two, though, I myself need to have the necessary skills, which are effected by my emotional state, happiness. Love is a road to happiness. Since the species is my true purpose, connections with people are of the utmost importance. Book learning is also an incomplete form of knowledge by itself, so learning through experience of the world and my species and other species so I can better know what’s biochemical and what’s nurture, seeing as how that’s a big question to be solved in modern psychology. Advancement of the species by learning and aiding the mind is pretty huge. There needs to be a revolution in psychology.
With immediate survival taken off the plate, people are faced with a whole new set of problems that we haven’t biologically been set up to fight. Me thinks that would explain a lot of the depression in cultures cut off from their natural environments into a wholly man made one. People become the enemies of people, even more than when it’s a fight for a tribe or some such nonsense. There is no unity, so here we are in a vast sea of uncertainty and you can’t even trust the intentions of the people closest to you. So is it unnatural that humans started an agricultural revolution to be stuck in their own self-created environment? Is it wrong to try to change our own biology to adapt to this new world? Is it useless? Perhaps it just leads to our own self-destruction… But maybe that’s the point. Nature tried a different path for living and it didn’t work out, so now we try something new… Speaking from the perspective of a human, I hope that’s not the case… Hope is all I really have… Maybe the species has grown too large in population and power, so it’s killing itself off. High suicide and insanity rates make me wonder if we’ve created an impassable goal and knowledge kills. It’s not knowledge in and of itself, tho… Knowledge is just a means to an end. It can both help and hinder, it’s just certain knowledge that kills. Yet destruction clears the way for creation and then I’m just stuck in a rut. The universe is such a mixed up place. It always has the same amount of energy, the form just changes. I would assume the same applies to life and sentience. So very strange and seemingly counter intuitive to a mere mortal whose body desires only gain. For life, to change so it can hold on to life. bah
Sorry for unfollowing you again, but I’m tired of dildos, though thoroughly entertaining, popping up on my screen while I’m at school.
I’ll readd in a safe place…
