The very essence of being alive is to realize our predisposition to be a tragic hero and possibly prolong our road towards that
12.1.13 A Poem
Silicon nitride is not the same as sulfer iodonitride
and sulfer with indium makes only indium sulfide.
Snow is white—but why?
A few days ago I learned
what makes snow white, soft and crunchy
instead of clear, tough and slippery,
despite being just as water as ice.
It’s actually the crystals, invisible to our eyes
forgotten in random orientation.
They are microscopic ice cubes intertwined
into columns, needles and plates,
reflecting, by the same law in physics,
their unique waves from above,
returning all, completely, the colors
of the world, which combined,
in our eyes, mark the purity and sense of space.
For All Real Thoughts I Nourish, Grow.
It seems that we embrace
in the form of alcohol.
It’s the only one you’d pay and monetize upon.
Even the hunchback had found his love,
The beast a dame so patient.
But the phantom who lives in the world below—
He was too passionate.
He was too eager, too ready to be owned
that he was of no patience,
no need for long-term dedication.
People spend centuries solving million dollar questions,
only to reach a simple conclusion,
yet most of us spend not even two years
before we find a new phone, more reliable, more productive, smarter.
Thank goodness romance makes life.
