Philosophy is normally a subject of “study” restricted to the provided-for intellectual elites who will, sadly, never need to do anything useful to earn a living. But, in all truth, philosophy isn’t only for ivory towers. It’s also found in Walmart – especially existentialism and nihilism. 😆

Either your beliefs matter or they don’t. Do your beliefs matter? Or are you one of many, many, many sorts who claim beliefs but stay silenced by the fears of opprobrium? If you’re the latter what does that say about you?
Or, maybe it says more about your beliefs – not the content thereof, but your actual understanding of them. Maybe you don’t really believe in what you think you do. Maybe, that belief or yours is just a convenient placeholder and placard for what you really believe.
This is probably the single most effective, but least used, means of solving the majority of White’s problems. Since the Internet and Social Media have both weaponized words and put weapons of mass destruction in the hands of everyone in the Civilized World, this is really just an extension of the 1960s iconic, antiwar slogan, “Make love, not war.“
NOTE: This Is For Whites’ Problems
This advice is almost entirely Amerocentric and/or Eurocentric, though some minorities in the West, e.g., most Asian groups, could benefit from it as well, as could Asian countries like Japan, though for the purpose of addressing different problems. Other minorities in the West, especially inside America’s borders would see fewer benefits from talking less and fornicating more. The potential exception to that would be Black women, but only with a significant shift in priorities on their part.
But.. as Whites are the majority and dominant group in the West, and as our problems are almost hegemonic in how they spread to and impact the rest of the world, solving our problems would per force benefit everyone. 😉
The Zen of cats? With cats? Both? Meh, who cares? It’s Zen; it’s relaxing for you and the cat in question. Sounds like a good meditative exercise and something that’s good for the soul. 😛
Cosmology in the religious as opposed to the secular, anti-theist context, is the explanation of the origin, evolution, and eventual fate of the universe, from a more natural, religious perspective. It is also largely irrelevant to us mortals. Our personal cosmology is what we should be concerned about, not Creation’s.
So, rather than considering Heaven’s plan for creation, consider the state of your own soul and the angel and devil on your shoulders.
Of course, if you’re at all like me, you’re more likely considering how to get either your angel or your devil on both your shoulders. 😉
