[C. At a deeper level than any spatial ‘metaphor’, classificatory medicine presupposes a certain ‘configuration’ of disease - cont'd]
[3. Let us call tertiary spatialization all the gestures by which, in a given society, a disease is excluded or arranged by a group, in order to protect itself - cont'd]
[b. It was on the basis of this social space that the whole of medical experience was overturned - cont'd]
[ix. Rather than a disease multiplying within a hospital, if it is left in the free field of its birth and development, then as it appears, so will it be extinguished - cont'd]
Independently of their justifications, the thought structure of
the economists
the classificatory doctors
coincide in broad terms: the space in which disease is isolated and reaches fulfilment is
An absolutely open space, without division or a privileged, fixed figure, reduced solely to the plane of visible manifestations.
An homogeneous space in which no intervention is authorized except that of a gaze which is effaced as it alights, and [financial] assistance whose sole value is its transitory compensation
A space with no other morphology than that of the resemblances perceived from one individual to another, and the treatment administered by private medicine to a private patient
– Michel Foucault, The Birth of the Clinic: An Archaeology of Medical Perception, (Chapter 1: Spaces and Classes), 1963, translated from the French by A.M.Sheridan, 1973

“When I was 15, I spent a month working on an archeological dig. I was talking to one of the archeologists one day during our lunch break and he asked those kinds of ‘getting to know you,’ questions you ask young people: Do you play sports? What’s your favorite subject?
And I told him, no I don’t play any sports. I do theater, I’m in choir, I play the violin and piano, I used to take art classes. And he went WOW. That’s amazing! And I said, "Oh no, but I’m not any good at ANY of them.”
Then he said something that I will never forget and which absolutely blew my mind because no one had ever said anything like it to me before: "I don’t think being good at things is the point of doing them. I think you’ve got all these wonderful experiences with different skills, and that all teaches you things and makes you an interesting person, no matter how well you do them."
And that honestly changed my life. Because I went from being a failure, someone who hadn’t been talented enough at anything to excel, to someone who did things because I enjoyed them. I had been raised in such an achievement-oriented environment, so inundated with the myth of talent, that I thought it was only worth doing things if you could ‘win’ at them.”
- Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

What are the traits of a narcissist?    Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance    Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration    Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it    Exaggerate achievements and talents    Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate    Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people    Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior    Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations    Take advantage of others to get what they want    Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others    Be envious of others and believe others envy them    Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious    Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office

It's never too late.
"It's never too late." #blog #WritingCommunity #thoughts #philosophy #evolution #choices #selfcare #mentalillness
That’s not entirely true. Sometimes, it is too late. That’s why now is generally better. I’m almost never pleased post-procrastination. I’m regretful of late. I want more from my life and my reality. I suspect I’m not alone. I feel old and spent and used and tired. Some of it’s nature – I tend to the neurotically depressed and miserable – but some I think is also a consequence of the weird…

To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any exercise which the customs of the day esteem.

Even an evil-doer sees happiness as long as his evil deed has not ripened; but when his evil deed has ripened, then does the evil-doer see evil.

Over the years, the members of Plato’s Academy succumbed to this weakness of crippling uncertainty, and they would raise their heads into the clouds, while forgetting that they still needed to have their feet firmly planted on the ground.
The extreme skeptic may well seem as immovable as a stubborn mule. It’s not that he isn’t able to move, it’s just that he doesn’t want to.

btw, Dan Olson (Folding Ideas)’s video about Nostalgia Critic’s The Wall is absolutely fantastic. and the one about Flat Earth (and Qanon) is one of the best things ive watched on youtube in a very, very long time. he doesnt have the same attention as hbomb partially because his style and humor just arent as energetic lol, but also maybe because of his topic choice? idk but god those videos are good

Prazer no conhecimento. — Por que o conhecimento, o elemento do pesquisador e do filósofo, está associado ao prazer? Primeiro, e sobretudo, porque com ele nos tornamos conscientes da nossa força, isto é, pela mesma razão por que os exercícios de ginástica são prazerosos mesmo sem espectadores. Em segundo lugar, porque adquirindo conhecimento ultrapassamos antigas concepções e seus representantes, tornamo-nos vitoriosos, ou pelo menos acreditamos sê-lo. Em terceiro lugar, porque um novo conhecimento, por menor que seja, faz com que nos sintamos acima de todos e os únicos a saber corretamente a questão.
Friedrich Nietzsche - Demasiado humano I - Pg 98
