Really Living

Argue the Facts and The Argument

To each their own. People come in different flavors in this world. Everyone has different experiences, and levels of ability. Some people are like the butterfly, some resemble dogs, while others are much closer to being house cats. There are some people that are like lions. There are some that are like wolfs.

While I understand that some people are perfectly content with just existing like house cats, some of us feel that life is suffocating, and oppressive to be forced into living like that.

The truth is, you can not drug people to be content. You don’t see people drugging the wild wolf for acting like a wolf. Yet, this society drugs people that are not content with a living death, so they won’t complain about being forced to just exist.

Something I have thought about, one of the reasons a lot of people are promiscuous is because they are starving to death emotionally, and they are trying to get a handle on it. They don’t know how else to deal with it. No one has shown them a better way to deal with it.

Some people are content to just exist. They have nothing really special, they are idle, and busybodies, they watch tv, mindlessly consuming content online with tic tok.

Who Are You?

Those people, they feel threatened by people who are really alive inside. The people who are really alive, they do stuff. They do things that the people that are just existing object to, because it would be too much for them to handle.

Would you expect a wolf to live like a house cat? No! The house cat wouldn’t make it day in the shoes of a wolf. To each their own, however sometimes people are not correctly paired together.

It is said that most people just exist. While people can live together peacefully, the real problems have to be fixed. My feelings are that just existing is worse than death. It’s wasting my life, wasting my time; and it’s not making use of the gift of life that I have.

To really live is a goal. To leave behind just existing like a warm body with a clean face; and to really live life at my full potential. These people are like warm sacks of shit, they don’t really live; they just exist.


It’s enough to make a man want to jump out of an airplane just to enjoy the free fall. Some people crave adventure, thrill, and some level of excitement. In themselves, there is nothing wrong with this. It is their nature to do those kinds of things.

What is wrong is when someone has living like a house cat in their nature and then prevent others who are not like them from being themselves. It is oppressive.

This life is a living death of sorts. Its just existing as a warm sack of shit, but it doesn’t really have much living in it. With the way my home life is, I’m not allowed to do a lot of the stuff I would like to be doing. I find it oppressive.

Emotional Starvation

There is another issue, I’m starving to death emotionally. No one has touched me in eight months. I have no friends, no job, no girlfriend, no wife. There is also no one to talk with, or spend time with me.

Have you ever tried talking with someone that is brainwashed? They never see your side of the story. They lack the fundamental ability to reason from any other perspective than their own. They lack creativity, and are often judgmental; while having no real skill of their own.

They treat me like my work is worthless and has no value; yet, they lack a body of work to show as their own. I would like to see them do half as well as I have under the same conditions. That would be fun. I would laugh for months about it.


People have to be able to work within their skill levels. People that are working too far beyond their abilities often get hurt. Yet, some people aren’t happy unless they are pushing the envelope to the max. You shouldn’t drug people that are working within their abilities. You shouldn’t drug those who are pushing the envelope further. That is how progress is made.

To just exist is a living death. To just exist with no friends, no wife, no girlfriend, and no job, with no real hope of having a better life in the future; a living hell.

So how do we make life better? There needs to be some way that the people that like just existing can be happy without oppressing those of us that like living further on the edge.


How are you living? If you are nothing more than a warm body with a clean face, you lack the ability to understand this article. You don’t have what I have, which is the desire to live life to the max. Take your judgements and go sit in the closet for a while. We are going to live our lives as we see fit. We want better, and damn it; we are going to get better living than this.

The point is to do stuff that makes you feel alive. If that is too much to handle, maybe you should consider being a monk?
