A Gentle Reminder to the Self

The abysmal pit is anything but different from the euphoric moments in your life, they’re both a state of mind. Even your mental faculties process reality on basis of causality, being mad or sad is nothing but an effect of a certain cause. Being aware to your mental processing can be in itself the cause to an effect of alternate state of mind. Learn from the stoics.

On another note, you have very little control of the next moment or the next day, don’t worry, that’s on your side. At the end of the day what rules is probability. If you’re sad, the probabilities are in favor of you being sad if you continue that line of action/thought without intending to interrupt it. While interrupting it, in whatever possible way, will always include a new variety of probabilities in the basket. So go ahead. Interrupt your fucking life, and alter things around.

Pathos To The Punisher

Nemesis.

Nemesis.

The ground for the manifestation of a super hero is the failure of society. The presence of an unprecedented challenge that leaves the institutions of society stunned and paralyzed.

We need superheroes more than ever in the world. We may need Batman, an uncompromising ideal that prevails even in the face of the most abysmal antagonists. But Batman couldn’t be farther from reality. However, a real (real in the sense of the possibility of his existence) superhero is The Punisher. The Punisher stands to his name, he knows no limits when he’s out there to get his vengeance: murder, coercion, torture and even mass killings. He will abide to no law, the laws are nothing but a tool applied by the most powerful to protect themselves. The laws have failed him many times and it’s failing everybody else.

I'm killing you all... It's not complicated.

I’m killing you all… It’s not complicated.

But the greatest thing in The Punisher, that’s highlighted in few of his finest comic books; is that he seeks no assistance from anyone, not because he’s a badass (he is). But just because he observes his situation objectively, he cannot be more morally compromised, his soul is sold to the devil way more than he could bargain to buy it back. The best thing about The Punisher that he’s not just aware of his morality, and the fact that’s he’s been condemned more than celebrated; the best thing about him is that he’s indifferent to it. He bears the weight of the world, and of all the moral compasses out there on his shoulder, it’s like saying in no words. “Let me be all your evil wishes. Let be your nemesis. Let me kill and torture whoever that hurt you while you renounce me, for you must remain untouched by darkness. For your morality mustn’t be compromised, I’m beyond saving, I can take it all.”

For in a world of good and evil, he’s the alter-evil. He’s everything to evil that evil is to good. He’s that hazy line standing between the two facets of the world, often neglected and wrongly categorized. And while he’s indifferent about his condemnation, about the moral games and speculations he’s the subject of, he’s never more sensitive when it comes to evil.

Alter-Evil

Alter-Evil

One of The Punisher’s finest moments, is when he’s often offered assistance, he refuses bluntly as always. But not for the fear of the person offering assistance to be killed, kidnapped or hurt in anyways. For the biggest loss, the threshold to an inevitable abyss lies in the opposite, if the person offering assistance does the killing, or the kidnapping or the hurt.

The fear of opening a whole sucking up the light and inviting darkness, for The Punisher punishes not only the wrong doer, but himself, opening his chest and embracing a darkness that could suffice the whole humanity and atones by keeping the gap wide between good and evil. Atones by being an alter-evil.

Pseudo-Reality: Fragments.

It’s really tiresome .. being in doubt and in confusion.

It’s very hard to explain my existential status or my existential feeling but I feel that something doesn’t fit .. something is not where it is supposed to be..

And it seems that I can’t let go my senses of nihilism, and its destructive questions like, so what? ( why bother and all the series ), and what’s after?

Questions that really make sense!

The fact that I can’t answer these question is overbearing! I feel, aimless? no that’s not the word, I might feel a bit like Sisyphus but in a reciprocal way.

I might feel a bit like Sisyphus but in a reciprocal way.

What consulates me a bit, that I am ignorant and I acknowledge my ignorance.

Doing that it leaves me wondering if my question got any answer at all, and my ignorance always leaves the possibility that there might be one, which comes contradicting to my intuition ..

Still I won’t stop looking .. because I am ignorant!

One last question .. to people who find life all purple and easy ! why?
Why do you find it like that? what makes you think it is all purple and easy?!
Enlighten my spotless mind please.
