My Struggle With One form

One more time…

 

While being formless is the ideal condition, the journey to it isn’t without sacrifice and suffering. It is not a natural state of the human psyche. Evolution has coded into us the need for attachment, the need to form in-groups to which we feel we belong. You must understand as you embark on this mission to become formless and unattached that you will hurt; this is one of the many paradoxes you will have to contend with as you grow: experience pain to end all pain.

 

Even now, as I type these letters, forms in and of themselves, I struggle with the attachment to another for that still spells love, and may forever be part of my process. I understand that this is a necessary adaptation, but I’d be lying if I told you that I want it.

Weekly Science Quotes

"Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence."

Louis Pasteur

------

"Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that's precise, predictive and reliable - a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional."

Brian Greene
