    Scratching will not make anything.

    One of the most important things I like to remember is that this is the best time to be a human in all of known history. Not even 100 years ago we were fighting tuberculosis and the Spanish fever. We now have extremely versatile computers in our pocket which have the power to communicate with anyone on the planet, solve complicated math problems, access information from a global and comprehensive system, play games, give you directions, and so much more. And those have only been around for, what, the last 20 years if we're being generous?

    Poverty has not been eliminated, but a large chunk of the population has access to food and clean water. War is at an all time low. People are more educated than ever, with illiterate people now being the small minority. We also know more about our planet and reality than ever before, and use much of this knowledge to help people through stuff like rice/wheat fortification, water purification, and medical advances that would have seemed like witchcraft to most other humans who have been born. Most kings did not live this good.

    Things are not perfect, but they probably never will be. So overall it's pretty damn good to be a 21st century human.

    As Christof Koch said, that the present moment is the only little slice of eternity to which I am entitled. It's beautiful and it deserves to be enjoyed. Like the glint of sunlight off the steeple before the execution. Even in my darkest hour, I can laugh because I remember this.

    Quantum mechanics, because it is the key to what our existence really is.

    Is it true that we only have a certain amount of mental energy? Is it really possible to be 100% in the moment and focused at all times? I don't think it makes sense to proclaim that your goal is to be focused in every single mokent if that is not possible, I think focused as much as possible is an achievable goal instead of a fools goal.

    I disagree. There are two ways to get things in this world, buying them or toiling and making it yourself.

    I've always been a poor man so I am more familiar with nature than I am with online catalogs

    That's a bit reductionist. Sure there are good and bad guys. But it's a matter of perspective who that is

    There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It's all the marvelous Play of God. Regain your humor. Don't worry, just be happy.

    It's important to know that even though most of this is true, progress has come at the cost of exploiting natural resources and fucking up our habitat at an unsustainable rate, and in the process we have also amassed the largest amount of potential destructive energy and potential for totalitarian control in the history of the species. Things are still pretty good right now despite the cracks in civilization that have been appearing over the past several years, but can't count on it lasting forever or even all that much longer.
