Fate and Co-incidence

Ok ok,

We are connected, each to the other, each to the earth, each to the universe. Our bodies and minds work by the same rules that guide the stars. Our very atoms are star-stuff.

Are the connections internal to us or external? Does the question even have meaning? In the connections is what I might term fate and perhaps what another might term coincidence. Where does one stop and the other begin? When the separation ceases to matter, there ceases to need a separate identity. Fate and coincidence lie separated by a very thin red line. In fact, the very thought of discerning the difference might be a fated co-incidence.

To be controlled by an irrepressible force is fate. To think that you are being controlled by an irrepressible force is purely coincidental. The term is irrelevant. Need we hang on a specific, isolating?

ps: Fate is what you are willing to forge.

Misplacing Displacement

Ok ok,

Let’s say you have a typical life and try to live it in the healthiest way. You might allocate your 24-hour day this way:

Sleep: 8 hours
Exercise: 1 hour
Work: 8 hours
Eating: 2 hours (Really Slowly)
Hygiene: 1 hour
Travel: 2 hour

That leaves you with two hours for family time, shopping, chores, Left4Dead, Facebook, Jail-breaking your iPhone real often and so on. If you have an acupuncture appointment, or your talkative relative calls from Tirunelveli, and or Survivor has a two-hour special, you’re tapped out.

It’s a challenge to live a happy life if you aren’t giving enough attention to all of those categories, yet doing so is nearly impossible.

One time management strategy is to be independently wealthy, freeing up eight hours a day. But that option isn’t available to many. And apparently it is not fulfilling because most rich people continue to work full schedules. Another strategy is to ignore the fact that you are slowly killing yourself by not sleeping and exercising enough. That frees up several hours a day. The only downside is that you get fat and then you die slowly. A third path is to work less than you could, live economically, enjoy each day as it comes, and try not to think about living on cat food when you retire.

And yes, dreaming about withdrawing CPF at old age deducts 10 days from you life and surfing the net for Groupon vouchers deducts 30 days. Which strategy have you picked and how much life have you lost so far?

ps: I’m working on a fourth strategy, will publish real soon.

Fact File

Archtomato . OxyMoron .
Laughing at Gilded Butterflies

Archtomato works in the IT security industry and has managed to convince his bosses for the past 10 years that his best work is yet to come.

Archtomato is a coffee nut, a photographer without focus, a traveler who can't read maps, a diver who floats all too easily and a champion of world peace.

He is an avid practitioner of the dark side of the force; admires Chuck Norris, Paris Hilton and collects vintage Batman comics. Just like the Horizon, Time Dilation, Flying pigs, Tax Reliefs and possibly, the "Opposition", he believes he is more of a concept than a corporeal being.

Archtomato believes that the true nature of man is decided in the battle between the conscious mind and the desires of the subconscious and that the evil of man's subconscious is often too strong to resist. The only way to win is to deny it battle.

He now lives in a world of pollution, profanity, adolescence, smelly beavers, zits, herpes, broccoli, racism, ozone depletion, sexism, conscription, yellow bananas, stupid people, nightmares, dog whisperers,Gamma Ray Bursts, Nuke Baddies and sings badly but regularly in the bathroom.

 Tomatoes were sacrificed in the making of this website, contents and for the continual existence of its owner.
