    Our Imagination is Not Imagination, At All

    But rather, a collection of pieces and bits from previously collected memories and mental images. Breaking my one year hiatus with a deductive reasoning writing (thesis first, supporting arguments and evidences later). So fun. Let me give some context to the background of this particular blog post. I’m a fond reader of philosophy and psychology in general, but have been rather lazy about it. Most of what I do is browse through¬†Brain Pickings, read books that look interesting and slightly related to them (review of “Man’s Search for Meaning” is coming up, by the way), and read existential crisis articles¬†here and there to try and at least scratch the surface…

    VOGUE: The Brutal Truth Issue

    Disclaimer: this is obviously not an actual Vogue issue. I am in no way closely affiliated with Conde Nast except that I’m an occasional reader who can only dream of looking like one of their vigorously photoshopped girls. This is more of an imaginary issue I’ve always had in my mind that would be perfectly suitable for Vogue (I chose Vogue because 1). I’m biased, and 2). I know what font Vogue uses for its cover). Because, y’know, magazines like to spark some brilliantly concocted delusions upon us all, not in a bad way though.   I came up with this from a random passing thought obtained during one of…
