While goodness raises a man above mankind, baseness lowers him below it. To plunder the wealth of others is avarice, call the plunderer a wolf; the uncontrolled man exercises his tongue in dispute, call him a dog; the sly trickster rejoices in his frauds, call him a fox; he who cannot master his anger we call a lion; the timorous man we call a... - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...

The present state of things as we are facing everywhere politically, economically, morally, intellectually, and spiritually is no doubt the result of our past thoughts and deeds we have committed as human beings through[out] the whole length of history, through aeons of existence, not only individually but collectively—let me repeat, collectively. As such, we are, every one of us, responsible for the present world situation filled with [its] awesome forebodings. The bombing of Hiroshima was not, after all, the doing of the American armies, but the doing of mankind as a whole, and as such, we, not only the Japanese and Americans but the whole world, are to be held responsible for the wholesale slaughter ..

View To Lisbon/Across The Tagus. There is only a shut window, and the whole world outside, And a dream of what could be seen if the window were opened, Which is never what is seen when the window is opened. - Fernando Pessoa Image © jamreilly 2010 - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...

There is only a shut window, and the whole world outside,
And a dream of what could be seen if the window were opened,
Which is never what is seen when the window is opened.

I exist unconsciously and I’ll die unwillingly. I am the interval between what I am and what I am not, between what I dream and what life has made of me, the abstract, carnal halfway-house between things, like myself, that are nothing…How disquieting it is to feel, how troubling to think, how vain to want. - http://jamreilly.tumblr.com/post...

In the silence, there is solitude. In the solitude, there is silence. This is the whole point of technology. It creates an appetite for immortality on the one hand. It threatens universal extinction on the other. Technology is lust removed from nature. It is purity. It is clarity. It is bravery. The world is full of abandoned meanings.
