  • High Functioning Anxiety? Some philosophical notes of the modern Aria

    www.huffpost.com/entry/high-functioning-anxiety-signs_l_5cd42647e4b09f321bdcc6d0 I ponder why mental health as a topic has become so prominent in our experiential awareness, concern and vocabulary. From a philosophical perspective, it seems sensible. For, the prominent 20th century philosophy was existentialism, and thus is based in the preponderant existential anxiety. However, aside from the more obvious considerations where history makes sense […]

  • Philosophical Mental Health Contemplation of the Day, part one

    This is a philosophical contemplation of mental health, so it’s going to be a little longer than just a tip. Anxiety is probably the most foundational element of mental health.

  • Anxiety and the Common Cold

    Relating mental health physical health; anxiety is not the same as having a cold. … but our current psychological/scientific mental health paradigm would make us believe that it is similar.

  • It is Healthy for the World that the Humans Got Sick

    Pollution is going down.

Fear is that which creates dysfunction through making its agency appear […]

  • The Local Psyche Global. (Lacan part 2)

    Ok. The question on the table is two parts: If The modern world is really the unrecognized embodiment of the reflection of one’s self, which is the the factual state of individual alienation, then what does it even mean that the alienated self-reflection is looking at cars, trees, space, planets, stars, deers, etc….?  What does […]

  • The Gift

  • Anxiety and Addiction: A cypher of the real method. 

    — A Concept of Anxiety. (A nod to Soren’s genius.  With some Hegelian nonsense also 😛) Anxiety can be said to arise as a type of synthesis of thesis and anti-thesis. In very concrete terms the problem that exists between ‘I should do this but I can’t do this’. Anxiety arises as a third factor in […]

  • Post-post-modern-modernism: The Mistake of Irony; Or, The Ironic Mistake.

    Perhaps a little bitty on postmodernism and the, what could be labeled of our current situation, post-post-modern-modernism. Here are a couple links that roughly define the conventional problem I will address in this essay. The first is a little less ridiculous than than the second. The first offers us an argument for why postmodernism is […]
