On Conflict

Our brains require stimulation. In one way or another, we always look for it. Some of us look for stimulation of our physical senses. Others search for other external stimuli such as conversation or discussion. Still fewer of us seek inner stimulation.

Few of us seek to use the same content, to remix and create with what we already have. The same can never stimulate like the different. The same produces a resistance, familiarity, expectations, comfort. That is why our entertainment centers around conflict whether it be sports, dramas, novels, debate, politics, or even business.

We say we want peace. Yet, the truth is, few actually do. If we had peace, many would be forced to confront our internal conflict. Most of us fear dealing with this because like every story arch, the end follows a resolution. Many of us fear, not the end of our story, but the end result. We fear becoming the final version, for it may not be what we want. We forget, that we may, yet, win.

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! I had considered starting a blog for a while but never had the guts to do so. On this blog you’ll find an assortment of things: experiences, reviews, rants, poetry, political observations and maybe even a picture or a video. 🙂 I will probably also shamelessly advertise the talent of my friends, although I don’t know who benefits most from that. Anyways. Feel free to leave comments and send constructive criticism. I appreciate any involvement and hope you visit again. 🙂

 

Have a great day
