Vanilla Sky

1:24pm

Vanilla Sky was a really good movie with a really sad undertone. I’ve had thoughts about that, even before I watched that movie. [thinks a bit] Imagine that eh?

Originally, this entry was made a couple of days ago, but with sleepiness creeping up on me, I saved it and came back on it now. There is a coincidence here that I found amusing.

My mom bought a box of Quaker Chewy’s from Costco a few weeks ago. They’re really yummy, though a bit too sweet. Since then, I would randomly pick one from a glass container, and it would always either be Blueberry or Strawberry flavoured. I wondered, “I thought there are more types!”

On Sunday night, Spongey came over and had a two and a half hour chat over Guava Juice, Blueberry Juice, and some Veggy Chips. I brought the container of Chewy’s up to my room and realized that the entire thing was filled with Vanillia flavoured Chewy’s. I thought, “Why were all the vanilla ones here? Huh? How did that happen?”

Anyway, if you catch my drift, I find it coincidentally humorous. If not, go back to bed. This is a dream. [waves hands around]

  1. Hahaha!! Strange,I wonder what the message is?If you believe in cosmic hints..that is.

  2. I do believe in ‘cosmic hints’ actually. As much as I would like to think it’s all a coincidence, being an individual that was born from the elements of the universe itself, it wouldn’t be wholely accurate to say “we happen just because”, now could we? So if the universe works as it should, then what happens is all just part of the universe doing its thing. Whether we eventually find out why and or what, is up for grabs and the usual debates.

    Imagine a creek with the occasional boulder, rocks, and twigs. Water run through it quietly and calmly, with a few swirls and whirlpools here and there. If you place a leaf on it, it will drift down as the current takes it and bump into the obstacles and twirl around as it would. So that’s the universe working as it should. We can of course, influence the course of that leaf, if we put our finger in the creek to make the water run a different way, or add obstacles to it, or dig up another arm for the water to go into, etc, etc. However, if I don’t do anything about it, the leaf will continue its course, as it should – as it would regardless.

    So of course, it could be a coincidence that things have been happening, but I can’t say they happen just because. People can argue that chance is the measurement of opportunity in ratio to infinity, but as you see, there is a paradox there. Opportunity for a six sided die is one in six, but the chance for you to roll any one of those numbers is an opportunity of one in six of affinity. So it is possible to roll one million side two’s and ten thousand side sixes and five hundre side three’s. There aren’t magic tricks or skill where you can construct a rolling technique to roll specific numbers. It’s all just luck, and luck is based on [drum roll] the illusion that you can specifically get what you want, even when you least expect it. Thus the chance of you succeeding just so happens to be bundled into those opportunist instances of affinity.

    That’s my take on cosmic influences and chances.

    Anyhow, I wonder about this though – not just this scenerio. I’m talking about the things that has happen and in chance, as they do, even when I barely influence the opportunities to happen. It’s like unlocking a door, leaving it slightly open, but bare no sign nor flashing banner anywhere, and having people invite themselves into it. Come to think of it, it must be that slight opening in a cookie cutter neighborhood, that attracts curious and possibly, mischievious people.

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
