A Viagra Society and other notes

(These notes aren’t intended to be read in conjunction with one another. They are merely notes and thoughts that have been written down in a notebook of mine.)

What does it mean to take Viagra? It’s a stimulate for a stimulation. It is a desire, for a desire.

Look at the particularities of your life today.

Fulfillment was once sought after. Now, it is happiness. And as a result, we are neither happy nor fulfilled.

St. Paul was wrong. It is impossible to do what you do not want to do. Everything you have ever done was done because you wanted to do it.

I once heard someone teaching on the difference between subjective and objective truth. He asked two questions, “How many starburst do I have?” and “What is your favourite flavour?” He then went on to say how the first question had an objective answer and the second had a subjective answer. He then went on to talk about Christianity, which he believed had an objective answer. If it’s objective then why am I told to work out my salvation with fear and trembling?

One of the occupational hazards with philosophy is that the philosopher becomes satisfied with her own line of reasoning.

Do the musicians in the subway have any less passion than Mozart or David Bowie?

    If St. Paul was wrong, then I should sign with Adidas… because a 6am alarm got me out of bed to do chemistry this morning.
