Sports

Views from around the universe

sports = we were really surprised to see the amount of sports practices on planet Earth

strongman, a

Views from around the universe

strongman = weakling who needs weapons to make his point

strongman = he who represses free thought, free expression of thought, free flow of information

strongman = person plus group of minions who lack imagination, which inevitably leads to destruction because neither a strongman nor their minions have the imagination to create anything living, breathing, healthy, progressive or enjoyable. In fact they are too frightened to lose power to do anything useful.

strongman = he who surrounds himself with weaklings
Though there is a great argument about this. Some say, the strongman is always weaker than his followers. Which is in line with the old story where some schemers put a weak king on the throne in order to manipulate him. Some ask why these people bother with a king at all. To which most thinkers role their eyes and say: it’s for the show of things. For the story. The story that some humans are meant to be kings. Which is of course nonsense. It’s just a story. But it’s a story that works well on humans, even after centuries of evidence that kings and queens tend to be rather useless at best, and murderous idiots at worst.
There is the other group of thinkers who argue, that no, while the strongman is weak by nature, he is in fact so weak that he can’t abide anyone in his proximity who shows any sign of strength. Which is why the strongman always makes sure to surround himself with much weaker people.
Nevertheless. The people surrounding, supporting and enabling strongmen are one of the big and very popular mysteries in the universe. And even though the universe has been studying planet Earth for decades, it still can’t quite make out, why anyone would bring a strongman to power and even keep him/her in power. Strongmen never achieve anything useful. All they do is plunder their nation, and build big armies to bully and plunder other nations.
Some of the most ingenious thinkers point out, that alas the human race still hasn’t discovered their own strength. ‘They always think ill of themselves. They even invent machines to prove just how insufficient they are, and that even great arts can be copied by a machine. It is our believe that if humans learned to appreciate themselves, they wouldn’t be in all this trouble.’
Some ask, ‘but how does this theory fit in with our observation of deeply ingrained superiority complexes in humans?’
‘It’s the same thing. A need for superiority only arises in the weak. The weak find their strength by belittling others.’
If the human found their balance, they wouldn’t need to be superior.

superiority

Views from around the universe

superiority = delusion

superiority = a mindset which can be discovered in humans who were either brought up to believe they are better than others, or who have suffered setbacks in their lives which they try to play down by blaming others and developing a persona who is per se better.

superiority = a convictions which happens to humans who haven’t grown up. Like some small human children they constantly need to be the centre of attention. If this isn’t given, the child and the immature human build thought pattern of superiority to belittle other humans and defend the amount of attention possible.

Tolerance

Views from around the universe

tolerance =

Toughening up

Views from around the universe

toughening up = a fun game which includes diving into ice cold water

toughening up = around the universe its a fun game, humans on the other hand tend to use strengthening exercises to harden themselves in a way that closes all other layers of their being. It is strange for us that humans seem to have so much trouble with diversity, their very own and the diversity around them.

truth, a

Views from around the universe

A truth = a decision to think or act in a certain way, thereby making it a personal truth or framework for personal decisions

truth, the

Views from around the universe

the truth = does not exist

the truth = is the start of arguments and at worst the seed of wars

Victory

Views from around the universe

victory = defeat, loss, long-term trauma

victory = Only a few decades ago, we finally saw victory for what it is. It’s a delusion. There are no winners in a war. But the most dangerous aspect of victory is the blindness that tends to come with it. Victors are always in danger not to reflect their mistakes, not to ask what it takes to prevent future wars. But worse, victors tend to derive a moral high ground from their victory thereby sowing the seeds for new conflicts. It is one of the most difficult tasks for any planet to experience victory and not be swept away by the power of having succeeded, but to force itself to be reflective and to unearth what lies at the roots of a conflict, and patiently, humbly address each and every critical point.

War, every

Views from around the universe

war = utter stupidity

war
We keep wondering how humans find the time to go to war. They are still struggling with a global pandemic, ecosystems, and with that the basis of human survival, are collapsing worldwide and some people seem to think that this is a good time to go to war?

war = the fantasy of bringing order to a chaotic world

war = is an illusion which proclaims that only the attacked will suffer

war = useless waste of human lives, minds, potentials, crippling humans and families with the trauma of war

War, after a

Views from around the universe

after a war = trauma

after a war = exhaustion

War & sex

Views from around the universe

war & sex = there is a connection but it’s not easy to pinpoint

war & sex =

weapons industry

Views from around the universe

weapons industry = guilty of mass destruction, and the enabler of armed conflicts

weapons industry =

Why?

Views from around the universe

Why? = an essential question

Why? = Why? is a question which comes naturally to children. Adults have a tendency to forget the importance of asking why.

Why? = We have made it a custom in our society to ask ourselves why we do the things we do. It helps us to set our priorities and to reflect on the effects our actions have on others and on our habitat.
