Courage

The truly courageous of us,

are those willing to embrace who they wish to be

to make their own choices without the fuss

to embrace oneself is the key

 

But this does not mean those who fight the good fight

are not ones to be considered courageous,

those willing to live or to die to protect what is right,

they are also truly ones to be remembered in greatness .

 

This is not to say that those overthrowing a great power,

are not also doing what they think is just

history sides with the victor, the lost in flower

those who fight do so because they must.

 

Agreeing with all definitions

courage itself can be within all

from the single parent to the crowd willing in placation

courage to act and able to answer the call

Garden

The joy of tending to the soil

of seeing the life bud anew,

is beauteous and worth the toil

Even if only a single plant I grew.

 

This plant did grow strong

overtaking its fellows, its fruits did prosper.

Its offspring knew where to belong

taking all the nutrients they could muster.

 

Now this plant can own the garden

Left alone, it dominates all the rest

If unchecked it will only darken

the garden that I wish blessed.

 

So passed the plant that overwhelmed

my whole garden, taking all

leaving none, it is now culled

devastated, I went back to that weird plant stall.

A new tab!

I have started a new tab!

I will be posting a weekly rant on here, most likely to be published every Sunday/Monday (still figuring out the best time to have it up)

All content is either my opinion, an opinion that I have forced (thanks dice) or something that has been requested to be covered

Some may offend, some may confuse, most will be off-topic and not logical

As always, lets start a discussion if you agree/disagree with what is said.

Existence

As a shaft of light shines thru the cracks of my curtains

looking down I see a body wasting away.

Food is ever so plentiful

but the body lacks nourishment.

Water be ever so available

but the thirst is not present.

My body takes on exercise every day

but it lacks in spirit to gain its fruition.

All five senses are hard at work

and though I can see, I do not.

A purposeless existence is one to fear

but in an infinite universe, what purpose can stand against it?

 

 

 

What does chaos say about the system?

Via impromptu social media survey

Good evening.

Almost all systems will inevitable create the conditions for the breakage (chaos) of that system, or at least an attempt to do so will naturally occur within some framework of time.

Even a glitch in a system can create the conditions to improve and fix that system.

Like any binary opposite, Chaos and Order need each other to co-exist. In a world stifled and completely ordered, there is no ability to adapt to new scenarios (uncontrollable factors like weather, meteors etc). Without chaos a system cannot improve.

Lets take parking a car.

At a somewhat young age, we are taught that when parking your car you park in the lines. Hell this is a general rule taught at an even younger age (looking at you colouring in books “colour inside the lines”).

Knowing that any system will inevitable sow the seeds for chaos, a car parks over two bays. This breaks that parking system, as other users cannot use those bays, and it all falls apart.

But let me ask you, is this the users fault or the systems fault?

My neighbour that parks next to my bay at my unit complex always parks right on the line. According to the system, he is following its rules. But it results in me having to park right up the my line, pushing the next car further to the right (and so forth)

This system is clearly not working for my unit complex.

But what if instead of being taught to park in the lines, we were all taught from a young age to park 30cm* away from the car next to you. No lines on the road in parking bays, just make sure you are 30 centimetres away from the closest car. Hypothetically, if this was an established rule and 99% of drivers were following it, everyone would park just fine with no grievances. That 1% that chooses to park how it feels like won’t affect the rest, because they would just park 30 centimetres away from it on either side.

 

So when you are struggling with working in system, feel that it is not working as it should. Try to poke some chaos in there. See what happens and try to improve it.

For without chaos, order would be impossible.

 

*This distance is not an important point, I picked something at random, but maybe 30 may be to close or may be too far.
