Things I read that seem true

  1. The superior man, in the world, does not set his mind either for anything, or against anything; what is right he will follow. (Analects of Confucius, Book 4, Chapter 10)
  2. In this way of thinking, events, regardless of when they happen from any particular perspective, just are. They all exist. They eternally occupy their particular point in spacetime. There is no flow. If you were having a great time at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, 1999, you still are, since that is just one immutable location in spacetime. (Brian Greene, The Fabric of the Cosmos, Chapter 5)
  3. “Ego,” sayest thou, and art proud of that word. But the greater thing—in which thou art unwilling to believe—is thy body with its big sagacity; it saith not “ego,” but doeth it. (Thus Spake Zarathustra, Chapter 4)
