In layman's terms, without using your head, you're just constantly going on whim.

This quote seems to be a projection of how she felt. Her mental desease must have affected her profoundly. I guess she tried to hide her condition to must people, expressing in public a completely different persona of who she really was and how she felt.


Does her quote also entail a little bit about her works? I know she wrote something about the stream of consciousness, just wanted to know if that contributes to her quotation.

The younger generation today is constantly told that they are "special" snowflakes, each and every snowflake is different and has unique qualities and therefore requires the upmost respect and praise from all surrounding peoples. But what the "snowflake" fails to acknowledge is the shear fact of respect is given when you respect others, not scoff at them for their different values or different qualities. You don't have to understand them, you just have to respect them for the same way you respect yourself. After all, everyone's a special snowflake, right?

Topic: The Operating System Windows 95.

I have plenty of these install disks laying around my house and I can't find a need for them; however, they offer me some sort of sentimental value, some sort of mawkish weirdness that newer operating systems don't do. Does anyone else experience this strange nostalgia? It's quite depressing.

I don't see the purpose of this. Is this simply an etymological experiment or an ode to germanic tribal talk?

Interesting how people don't get along for simple reasons. Makes me wonder how people deal with complex issues.

Hearing it around millennials tells me one thing, it's something that's not worth mentioning.

Anyway, it means that you have transcended certain knowledge that deems you superior to "sheeple" don't understand it.

To everyone that would raise an eye to this.

I completely understand this does not make any sense, in fact, I didn't even say any of this. It was a fellow I met on the street that decided to spew his pseudo intellectual dribble onto me, and I just am I asking if he has any tenability in his statements or is just a ploy to make me seem stupid?

It is said that most of us apparently use 10% of our brains capacity. This is because apparently our thinking is impeded by our "character armor". Since many people don't speak the truth, they spend a huge amount of time finding pathways to FUNCTION without a truth barrier.
Why is this? The recent documentary you linked be based on "The century of self" kinda covers this.
Why do people spend so much time bottling up weird fetishes and crazy lies that causes certain people to believe them? Is there a reasonable answer for this?
