Not so obvious

Posted by Ira Chayut on Friday, June 12, 2015, In : Philosophy 
Everything you’ve learned in school as “obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.

Optimistic or pessimistic

Posted by Ira Chayut on Wednesday, June 10, 2015, In : Philosophy

One of a kind

Posted by Ira Chayut on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, In : Philosophy 
Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.
