Daily Prompt: Second Time Around

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

I have written a previous blog about a book I read a bunch of times but today I’ll write about another one. The Curious Incident of the Dog at the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.

The book was given to as a gift and it was somewhere during my exams. I started the book almost immediately and just like that the book captivated me. I’m not sure what it was, maybe the fact that I was sneaking and reading it, but I couldn’t put the book down. I finished it in 2 days.

I read it again later when my friend was also reading so that we could discuss it. It was the second time around that I realized why I liked the book. It was the innocent way it was written. I had never read a book written from a child’s point of view let alone one written in the point of view of a mentally challenged boy. It was this innocence and the fact it portrayed the fears of a challenged boy. It was a sweet and beautiful story. Also it was a detective book (one of my favourite genres).

So to anyone who hasn’t read this book read it. I am definitely sure you’ll like it. So till next time….cheers. 😀

Pain

Heart breaks are probably the worst kind of pain. You can take a pain killer and soothe out physical pain but heart breaks are totally different. It’s like a you are standing right in the middle of a war between your heart and brain and all you feel like doing is cry.

Most people feel heart breaks when they break up with their boyfriend/lover/husband. But my heart is broken not because of a guy. Yesterday my favorite football team FC Barcelona lost against Bayern Munich and as much as people say it is stupid to cry over a match, it means a lot to me.

To put a cherry on my grief, the weather is cloudy and raining and it is bad. Just the worst feeling in the world! I try to forget it. I am trying to think of happy things or even sad things, right now I don’t care! Anything is fine. But the moment I stop thinking about anything, I feel my heart clench and tears in my eyes. It is sad.

Anyway, I thought writing this blog would get my mind off the game for at least a few moments and it did. So hope you guys have had a better day!

Solipsism and other theories

The Thinker Auguste Rodin

I wonder what kind of theories The Thinker came up with

Hello!!!! I know I haven’t posted for a long time and I didn’t have any interesting to post. So anyway I previously mentioned on my Bizarre Birthday Theories about the fact that our reality is just a figment of our imagination. Apparently there is an actual theory suggesting it called Solipsism! Just when I thought of something cool someone else has already thought of it. Anyway it is such a cool theory! I kind of believe it now!

So this blog is about the various theories people have come up to explain some stuff. The theories presented are the lesser known ones. I won’t be mentioning the 13th level theory nor the-brain-in-a-vat (more popular known as the Matrix theory) or the Multiverse theory.

A unnamed theory suggested up Plato and further developed up unknown people, is that we are merely shadows of a ‘perfect’ world. And just like us our shadows (the black thing following you in the sun) have a parallel world where they interact. This leads to the never ending line of parallel universes. The theory further goes on to explain that when we sleep our subconscious mind connects with the perfect world and that’s what are dreams are.

Next up is Presentism. Like the name, this theory is super weird. Basically it says that the past nor the future exist. Just the present. So basically anything you did ceased to exist after you do it. It is mind-fucking! Thinking about it makes your head feel weird. And just to mess with your head more, here are the words of the great scholar of Buddhism, Fyodor Shcherbatskoy: “Everything past is unreal, everything future is unreal, everything imagined, absent, mental . . . is unreal. . . . Ultimately real is only the present moment of physical efficiency.”

The last one on this blog is Phenomenalism. According to the Phenomenalists (they are so original), the world exist so long as you perceive it. That means that this blog that you are reading exists so long as you believe it does. So it means Phenomenalists exist so long as you think they do. Do you think they exist?
