Why would our thoughts and beliefs be any different from the collection of molecules that created them? The end is the means, and today’s certainty is tomorrow’s stale, overused, subconsciously toxic […]
“Religion, ideologies, even gurus, are only as beneficial to the inevitable evolution of the human psyche as they influence a person to think for him/herself.” -Amy Larson, amyjalapeno.com
