Well, I stopped doing these “with merritt” (science, philosophy, art, and ideas based) blog updates for a couple weeks. I wasn’t sure why I stopped, but I think its because someone in my life criticized them, and I hadn’t seen a response of any kind.
I realize now what stupid reasons those are to stop. My mind is drawn to the wonder and mystery of life. I’m annoyed by the lack of intellectual exploration happening online, and I want to provide an alternative, no matter how small. I want to keep the blog updated, and these are the kinds of things I’m actually motivated enough to post. I will try to keep music things updated too, but that kind of sucks. Working on music is working on a building, its all just gross and under construction until its finished and swept and has a bow to cut.
So I’m going to keep on keeping on. This is a lecture I needed this evening. It’s borderline cheesmo, but I hope it helps you!
