Every now and then I’m seized with an overwhelming urge to write, so I sit before my laptop screen, take a sip of my hot tea, my refreshing juice, my anything, set my fingers in motion and that’s when it hits me: I can’t think of anything to write about.

Five minutes have gone and I still stare at my blank page. All that crosses my mind is “no subject, come up with a subject”, and then I wonder, “Why do I feel like writing when I have nothing to express?” Perhaps then, there is something willing to be expressed, yet it’s so small that I can’t take a good look at it.

When every nascent thought fails to bloom I’m trying to capture a feeling, any feeling I can grasp on it and have a chat with it.

I’m feeling...

... nostalgic.

My eyes are still upon the screen, no music and I am flying away from everything to reconsider me. Only when you reach reductionism - that is to say empty your insides from unnecessary or ugly thoughts, damped in exceeded mentalities - you conquer your calmness. That is in order to see clearly and judge right each subdivision of the world, also included yourself, without biases, dogmatic influences and insubstantial generalizations.

It is difficult, when the child in you is still kicking, the person that you were at the age of 3, 5, or 10. Hence, the adulthood turns out undesirable because for the kid the negotiable reductionism was so much a given as his/her fruit cream breakfast - they know that most of their privileges do not require effort to conquest. Yet as the lad grows up, the conditions get more complicated, the cells of the brain are multiplied together with the number of thoughts – always however disproportionately.

Our head is very small in order to hold a specific amount of syllogisms and there the rationalism comes to save us. In essence, rationalism decreases the volume of thinking, filters, throws away, assembles and compacts thoughts, leaving for us inside strength and value.

As long as I keep looking on the screen, thinking ergo existing, I see that nothing has the right to hurt me, after all the garden still blooms in me, pink roses, white lemon flowers. Day by day I believe more and more in the Socratic Method: What the person needs for their intellectual, not necessarily progress but mainly survival, can be excavated from their bottomless depths of their soul. I try to do this and it really helps in understanding at step 1 myself and step 2 the world...

Heehee, I did find something to say after much hesitation in front of nothing and I’ll end my article in a very intellectual style with a Socrates’ quote:

“By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.”

I know it has nothing to do with my sayings yet I laughed and laughed, I am pretty sure you’re laughing and laughing right now!
