Math Buddha's Blather

Uh, I don't know, just read it and see for yourself.

It's strange, I think, how utterly incapable people are of controlling themselves. It doesn't even matter if they do know better. Or perhaps it's just that I've never ever met anyone who could, myself included. I wonder what someone would be like if they actually were able to leave things that they wanted and not reach for them, out of an understanding that it was better not to reach for them. Not for a day or a month, but forever. Would such a person be boring? Or monstrous? Or perhaps both?

You so funny sometimes... and yet highly thought provoking.

You seeing this? ;-p

That person would be HUNGRY, like I am right now. I'm trying to leave the Pringles in their can, but I want to reach out for them. I understand that it's better for me not to reach out for them. Leaving them for today may be possible, but I don't know if I can hold out much longer than that.

I can't control myself usually because I hunger something, be it dessert, a new shiny thing, or companionship. If I could rid myself of the want, I'd have no problem controlling myself. But if I didn't desire, would I lack passion? I don't know if I'd like me like that. I suppose at that point of the transformation, I wouldn't care. But my friends would find me awful boring.

You could almost say such a person might be . . . beyond good and evil.

Hi, BBD :)
