How to Live Forever
Price: Free! Words: 3,190. Language: English. Published: September 6, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Self-improvement » Motivation and inspiration
We all want to live forever, but we shouldn't. We're not supposed to. Ironically, if we could literally live every single day that time and space have left, our lives would be almost meaningless. It's the end of lives that cause them to matter. The end of your life -- thanks to the turbulence you leave behind you in the stream of time -- is actually the beginning.
Disobey
Price: Free! Words: 4,260. Language: English. Published: September 6, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Self-improvement » Motivation and inspiration
We've been handed a world that was created by others, shaped by their thoughts and actions, and told that this is the way things must be. We've been given a set of rules that are only opinions of the majority, and have been told that these are objectively correct truths. If life is not what you wanted or expected it to be, this essay will help you to become more. To question norms. To disobey.
You Are Dying, and your World is a Lie
Price: Free! Words: 2,720. Language: English. Published: September 6, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Self-improvement » Motivation and inspiration
The modern world has sold us on a lie. The lie says that to live is to be comfortable. To live is to be free of struggle. The lie says that the ultimate existence would be to never want for anything, to never be pushed so far that it hurts. So why do some of us seek out "edge" experiences? Why do we flirt with deprivation, with intentional chaos? This essay looks at what it is to truly be human.
The Universe Doesn't Give a Flying Fuck About You

The universe is very big. You are very small. You're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register. The universe was here before you were born and will be here after you're gone, and your life is barely a blip on its radar. If your life is to matter, it's won't matter to the universe. Stop worrying so much about what others think. It's time to do some epic shit.
