"Es una victoria ficticia de los principios sobre los instintos. El hombre y la mujer nunca crecen ni maduran porque quedan presos en esos esquemas, como la planta en una maceta que la ahoga. Semejante confabulación no puede sino provocar violentas rebeliones individuales. En consecuencia, nacen religiones nuevas, sectas peligrosas, la embriaguez y la droga que libera y abre las puertas de la vida. Es sorprendente la significación destructiva que ha tomado la palabra vida: vivir quiere decir excederse, romper las normas, ir hasta el fin, experimentar sensaciones nuevas."

Octavio Paz

Ghost Story

I attempt to make sense of the world through an outside lens and although I like to believe I have a grasp on how it all works, there’s only so much one can learn as a ghost.  I may be right there with you at that event, but the difference is that I am observing from the outside instead of diving in head-first.  I am the “unfortunate tourist” and I live my life vicariously through those around me because of this agonizing fear of rejection that haunts me like the ghost I feel I am becoming.

"If the industrial bubble does not burst in our lifetime, then we will spend our lives in a continuous effort to increase our consumption of goods.  We will do so despite the fact that our efforts will never be sufficient to get us what we want because no one can consume goods as fast as companies can turn them out and advertisers can create new desires for them.  We will do so despite the fact that many of our families will be torn apart by the effort and many of us will suffer psychologically and even physically from stress related disorders.  Sadly, most of us will continue to pursue our dollars and goods unthinkingly because we remain ignorant to any alternative way of living."
