The weather is better.

My entire life since the last post has completely changed; not for the better.

Ithaca is one lesson in detachment after another. after another. after another. after another.

Perpetual bouts of meetings and encounters and failing to click, it seems. Where am I going wrong? This I wonder.

It is possible to pack a whole year into about two weeks. I have done it. I have done it physically, emotionally, spiritually, philosophically, socially, whatever.

I drove directly into the '09 blizzard because Ithaca and I just couldn't take each other anymore. "The worst that can happen is adventures." I survived. I did not get stuck. It was a terrifyingly fantastic experience. I spent time in many cities. I will defend Baltimore to my best ability from now on, by the way. Beauty in Asheville, too. Atlanta, you bring drama; I could know you better. Hometown, I love you for bringing every one together, but dislike you for being able to simultaneously break every one apart. NYC, I could know you way better, but I learn more about you every time.

I found out that I still have real friends in this world. Imagine that! I found out that I can still love others. I can still love myself. I can still make meaningful intimate connections with others. I can still be affectionate with others. I am capable of talking to strangers. I am capable of making strangers into friends. I am capable of dancing (perhaps just capable).

I further realized I am capable of detachment. I am able to move forward despite wonderful things I wish I could just hold onto unrealistically. How I wish I could just hold onto them. However, still, I am capable of being irrational. I am capable of potentially making rash decisions that will result in complete change in order to pursue more completeness. This might happen. Maybe, I said. Still I say: Come over. If not now: Come over later.

I realized that sleep can result in lost opportunities. I slept an average of 4.5 hours per night in my hometown. Most moments felt completely fulfilled. I am truly glowing.

I am incapable of letting any of you downbringers bring me down any more. I wish you would make it easier on me though. We can all be friends. Fantastic friends. Friends and family and lovers. I want to see you happy. Be happy!

Ithaca: If I can learn to love you, will you learn to love me back?
Say yes.

and we're losing our minds
one sane moment at a time
that we'll never find again
breaking glass walls in your head

10 hours of experiments. 3 different projects. I don't go to class, because I don't care. Mostly, HAHA! I don't care. But still I will work in your laboratory. Because I am a scientist and science is what I do. It is an identity thing. It is.

Craigslist meeting people. What is up with that? Is that desperate? Is it really so hard to find human beings like me here? What is up with that? When I arrived I was on top of the world, I talked to anybody about anything because I could. Now? CONFIDENCE DESTROYED. Why the fuck did I let that happen to myself? I am going to stop dwelling. You know what. Make your fucking mistakes, past. Hey past, make your fucking mistakes. Me? I am going to let it happen and just let it happen. I am going to just start saying "fuck you" to nostalgia and melancholy. Because me? I am quite fed up with it. Past, you have fucked me over quite a bit lately. I will probably never forgive you. But, again. I am going to let it happen and just let it happen. Make your fucking mistakes. Past, I was the best thing that ever happened to you! All of you in the past. I am the reason you are who you are! DON'T YOU FUCKING SEE THAT. It is beautiful, really. Beautiful, who you are, past. I am not just talking about you either you vain vanity vaniter. Not you. I am talking about all of you, past. Well, maybe not all of you. I mean. It is hard to explain really. But I am not talking about YOU. I don't want to isolate any specific entity because that would be allowing the past to get me. Like I said, I am done dwelling. One last thing to say: I was the best thing that happened to you, past. I am the reason you are what you are now. Love it. There. It's done. GOODBYE PAST

Mania is my best compadre lately. It makes me laugh randomly walking around. I randomly take out my Chinese flute and play a note wherever I am. "YOU ARE FUNNY" she says. I say, oh okay. Then I play my Chinese flute. YOU THINK I AM SANE IN ITHACA? HOLY FUCKING NO. It is driving me to want to drive far far away. Oh wait, I am! I am driving all the way back to Florida. Not alone. I have friends with me. FRIENDS FROM THE PAST. OH MY GOD. But no. These friends exist now. These friends seem to exist in the now. Or they will be, when then is now but now is not quite then but when it is oh my god now will be now and then I will have friends. Right now, I am mostly without them. Friends, I mean. It is okay. But it drives someone crazy. Imagine going everywhere in a tiny little town and seeing NO FRIENDS. HOLY SHIT. It will perhaps make you a maniac. You know? You might end up walking the fuck around playing a Chinese flute after doing science for fucking 10 hours. SCIENCE IS ALL THE SAME. Centrifuge, mix, discard, incubate, incubate, incubate, centrifuge, mix, discard, run on gel, cut out band, dissolve gel, mix, centrifuge, discard, incubate, freeze for next time. YAY!

I am one step away from doing what Yama says. Yes. Yama. FROM THE PAST. OH MY GOD. This friend seems to exist now. Maybe. Maybe? Maybe? Maybe? Yama tells me to fucking uproot and move in with her in San Diego. Maybe I should? Why not? I am a trained fucking scientist. I can get 10000s of jobs. I can be a bum. I can steal. I can rob. I can do whatever. But this situation leads to mania. ROUGH IT OUT another past friend says. I agree. I should rough it out. But I have been in an entire semester of rationality. Yes. Rationality. I am always Mr. Negative rational. Yes. I am going to state my character flaws. Thanks.

Character flaws:
Negative. (x10)
Clingy.
Angsty.
Overindulgent.
Underachieving.
Arrogant.
Inconsiderate. (x10)
Selfish.
Egotistical as fuck.
Liking your own character flaws (see below).

Please feel free to list more. I really enjoyed that. It was fun. You should do it. You should admit your character flaws. I like mine a lot. I believe that is a character flaw, liking your character flaws. Sweet. I am going to add that now. HA HA HA. Wow I changed the past. Just like that. This is supposed to read temporally. What's up with that? Time?

Whatever, dude. I am going to run away to San Diego and live with some girl I have not seen in like 3 years. Why? Because I am a fucking irrational maniac. Thanks past. Thanks Ithaca. I am going to keep this entry public. My reputation will be ruined! Future employer: "Let's do an in depth google search of this fellow... My, what the fuck, he is fucking insane! What fucking drugs is he on?" Great!Great!Great! Great! Cool. Goodbye!

I do it to myself, I do.
I miss you so much, and you don't even think about me.

I never thought it would be like that.

Substance abuse is an excuse to use
the confidence you reserved all day as an introvert
Controverted to all things averted from... me
Egotistically I fall down low low low low ever so low
Finally today, I worshipped the moments that went by without my thoughts about you
Instantly I was reminded, depressed, resisted, saddened...
Don't you understand?
How could you be so free without me?
I am so fucking lost and its costing me so much.
I picture you happy with another and it kills me every single time.
I thought my karma was served before, but I was wrong.
The torment and sufffering I see now every day is more than enough to undo the suffering I caused you.
I was so immature and now I am sure that all I endure is due to my impure act.
All I want is to be with you or see you or hear you or touch you and oh my god HOLD YOU.
It has been hell dreaming of you and waking up alone and again, this matters nothing to you.
This matters nothing to you, because finally you are free from agony and disrespect.
I hate myself every day for all the mistakes I made disrespecting you.
I hate myself every day.
I could do everything I can and nothing could stand to make the change I just wish would... change.
I love you so much, I miss you so much, I need you so much, without you I'm so fucking lost.
Again again again again
I love you so much, I miss you so much, I need you so much, without you I'm so fucking lost.
Everything everything reminds me of everything you ever were to me everything I see.
Everything everything remidns me of everything you ever were to me everything I see.

The one song I wrote about you I perfect it every day, one day you will hear it, one day you won't care.
One day.
One day.
Soon.
Soon.
Too soon.
I won't be able to take it.

So low
So low
So low
So low
So low
So low
So low
4:24 pm
Then I pushed you up against a drunken wall.
I kiss hard, passionately, good.
Easily, kissing you is something I know.
"Bad news bad news bad news"
Then the questions come about another.
Not about me.
About your lust.
Your eyes defy you at every turn.

You like what you see.
Why do you stare at me?
My periphery catches you constantly.

Then, as the story goes, I drive you home.
Words not said.
Touches not shared.
I open a door to let you out.

Then I pushed you up against my car.
I kiss harder, more passionately, better.
Easily, kissing you well is something I know, well.
This lasts longer.
This one's better.
"Why are you such a shallow bitch?"
"I don't know I don't know I don't know"
The passion accelerates.
Passion passion passion.
Then separation occurs.
"I don't know what I'm doing."
"I like you. But usually I fucking hate you"
"I know"
No more words.
Then separation occurs.

One molecule removes a molecule from another molecule.
Happiness erupts.
Ionize them! Results abound!
Happiness erupts.
Followups are unknown.
The rate, the rate, the rate?
Wait.
Columns are yet to be delivered.
Watch me! I will show you.
Experiment.
I am a scientist, and I therefore do science.
Experiment.
I like to throw random molecules together and see what happens.
Ionize them! Results abound!
There is a big white box.
Inside it, science happens. Magic happens.
Mystery happens.
Happiness erupts.

And the grass was green.
then the world, it blew us away.
Me? I went northeast.
Fountains sprang in every direction.
My eyes? They were the head.
My head? My head?
If only I could break it open.
A closed head gets so full ever so quickly.
It tries to burst almost every day.
I encourage it. I do.
Nothing happens.
Fuller and fuller.
A strained heart and a full head leads to a liver in distress.
Good nights are good because the next morning is bad.
Lungs? They get blacker.
Sit next to the playground at night and encourage the black lungs.
A family slides down.
Blacken the lungs and watch.
"Watch out! I am gonna slide!"
Sliding happens.
Blackening happens.
Communication does not happen, and me? I am in all black.
I am in all black.
Escape to screen world.
Escape leads to more pain.
Knowledge is powerful pain.
Communication happens, and me? I am in all black.
I am in all black.
Fountains spring in every direction.
My eyes? They are the head.
Assigned to you is every bad and good thing.
Not obvious? My head will assign.
There you are. There you are. There you are.
Here you are. Here you are. Here you are.
Oh. There you are again!
A full head and a strained heart.
I made a friend!
My friend is leaving.
I made a relationship.
My relationship is over!
A thousand good things are gone!
The only great thing is gone.

I don't exist. I simply forgot is all. Everything is better now. Now. Now. Now.

Scientists are like apples

While being in biosynthesis of macromolecules, insights are abound, and abound are insights, and all scientific reality begins to demonstrate itself to be lesser than it itself claims. Eyes closed, and listening silently while focusing on a breath, the science starts to become clear; not the content of the science, but, again, the science itself.

The order of the macrocosmos appears to approach higher complexity somewhat counter-intuitively given that observation of energy states dictates what should be decay rather than growth. Mass and energy are equivalent simply because mass and energy as entities do not exist. (Oh great, another daoist rant, but really maybe no yes?) By exist, it is meant that there is no individual mass, and there is no individual energy, and quantized states are based only upon a sentient being's attempt at experiencing the unexperiencable. Unexperience is the foundation of the modern age, and it is only appropriate that awareness seems to be increasing as the construct begins to collapse in on itself with, very paradoxically, the construct itself being the vector for its own collapse. Project consciousness in; project consciousness out.

(The term universe is meaningless, and all further mention of existence will be referred to as the multiverse. The universe implies a single entity. There is no independent existence, but instead a continuous plastic polymer better referred to as the multiverse: a sum of all membranes of the universal projection.)

There exists no independent observer, but only one observer. The multiverse is its own observer. The multiverse itself exists because a multitude of perturbations from observation led to certain wavefunction collapses which preferred matter over anti-matter (or otherwise, as within the multiversal chain there are surely portions made up entirely of anti-matter or other forms of 'exotic matter,' any arbitrary designation will do), but again it is important to note all of this discussion is completely and entirely stuck on form. The multiverse itself is an illusion propagated by the multiverse observer, the universal vibration, the aum, god, brahman, zoroaster, the dao, ad nauseam. Form is abound because perturbation projected sentient beings that projected out: form! form! form! If form is projected out, then again, form is projected in and more form is abound until the multiverse is simply saturated with the illusion of form.

Form emerges and gains complexity (as opposed to the decay mentioned earlier) as a result of evolution. Evolution is the stream of perturbation resulting from the multiverse observing itself. The universal vibration oscillates on the same frequency as evolution, and evolution oscillates on the same frequency as the universal vibration. (Listen to cicadas if you want to hear it). Understand that there is not a really good word for what is meant by frequency. Frequency refers to the constant perturbation caused by multiverse observing itself. At any moment the vibration is constant, and unchanging, and it is not easy to understand something being both dynamic and static simultaneously, and this is exactly the nature of it. To again sample daoism: the duality is an illusion. Dynamic is constantly chasing static and static constantly chasing dynamic to bring about one single constant state, but it is not that the constant state is formed from the combination of dynamic and constant but instead that dynamic and constant are projected in and projected out due to the multiverse's observation of itself.

Form and complexity emerge, driven by evolution which is on the same wavelength as the universal vibration, but there are no individual time points only a single moment that seems to change just like how the frequency represents a wavefunction moving up and down seeming to change, but there is no change, and there is no other moment. Complexity is abound because sentient beings project complexity out, and therefore complexity is projected back in. Project consciousness in, project consciousness out, project consciousness in, project consciousness out.
