a sense of wasted tenderness


<..> but in the end, it’s a long, cold night and those woods for all of us.

"Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” —- and find that there is no death."

"It is wrong to bear children out of need, wrong to use a child to alleviate loneliness, wrong to provide purpose in life by reproducing another copy of oneself. It is wrong also to seek immortality by spewing one’s germ into the future as though sperm contains your consciousness!"

"Just because a given joy (such as reading dark fiction) is an escape mechanism doesn’t mean it’s invalidated or untrue, whatever those words may mean in this context. But the very fact that we can legitimately refer to joy as an “escape mechanism” doesn’t say much for joy."

- Thomas Ligotti (via blackestdespondency)

"I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self aware. Nature created an aspect of Nature separated from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this secretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we’re each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight brothers and sisters. Opting out of a raw deal."

"Why is it of such great interest to expose construction wherever it exists? According to Hacking, the interest derives from the following simple thought. If some fact belongs to a species of natural facts, then we are simply stuck with facts of that kind. However, if facts of the relevant kind are in fact social constructions, then they need not have obtained had we not wished them to obtain. Thus, exposure of social construction is potentially liberating: a kind of fact that had come to seem inevitable would have been unmasked (in Hacking’s apt term) as a contingent social development. This line of thought is overly simple in at least two respects. First, it’s not true that if something is a natural fact that we are simply stuck with it. Polio is a purely natural disease, but it could have been eradicated and almost was. The course of the Colorado River is the result of purely natural forces, but it was possible to transform it through the construction of a dam. Many species have become extinct and many others are expected to become so. Second, consider a case—like that of money—in which it is true that had we chosen not to construct it, it would not have existed. This does suggest that, if we wished, we could make it the case that there ceases to be money in the future (although it would obviously be far from easy). But we cannot undo the past. Given that it is now true that there is money, no amount of our choosing to do things differently in the future can make it the case that there never was any money."
