I guess if I entitle an entry “People Who Comment on Blogs Suck” then I should at least be fair about it. Since I am the only participant in the eponymous “thoughts-0-dave”, by blog post and commentary, then I too must SUCK. It is possible. I certainly have in the past and will in the future. And I may even suck right this very second!
Did I mention that the “-0-” in thoughts-0-dave is NOT the LETTER “O”, but rather is the numeral representing nothing. Zero, zip, nada, goose-egg. Empty set. The opposite of infinity (or is it?) … you get the idea. It’s a recurring theme for me. Perhaps it’s my age. I am 50 years old. Time for that screening colonoscopy isn’t it?
Do I mean that being around for five decades leads me toward cynicism or nihilism? Yes, but in a positive way. Nothing is not a bad thing or a good thing, it’s a not thing. It can be an antidote for excessive thinginess, which is endemic in our lurid culture. Materialism and the objectification of anything at all. Down with THINGS!! Choose NOTHING.
You are everything
