Every day a person wakes up with a different disposition, with minute chemical changes shifting our moods and hungers. The world seems largely the same.
The buses keep running, the newpapers arriving. Television shows cue up and if you show up to your job or not work continues.
Why does this happen? Is it technology? The automation of the alarm clock, the unified field of timezones, the changing of stop lights.
Or is it because most people do show up, despite how they feel at that moment.
We consider ourselves to be myopic in the material and cultural sense. But in ways we do not obey our whims at all. No amount of active philosophy from an individual can change this.
Therefore although you can control your thoughts, induce your own brimming salvation through the exploding will – a single person’s thoughts alone will not change the here and now.
