Takes the damn glass that everyone's talking about and drinks the rest of what's in it and leaves.

Have fun with your 100% empty glass.


Do you mean 100% empty or 100% not full?

I first was a bit confused, but after a second reading, i like it.
It is a bit like mentally playing the task ahead of you through, and assuming a positiv outcome, can really help you when it is serious? Just on a collective level?

The ability to accept the consequences of our own actions and the outcome of our decision making process is relegated to our own concept of what is positive or negative. Other people around us make decisions we have no control over that require an ability to adjust our expectations to fit the circumstances.

There is a human construct that plays a huge role in that ability and having the capability to take a step back and view things from a spiritual perspective while dealing with the collective nonsensical is paramount.

It is very important to recognize not every thing is what it seems to be, rather it is cloaked by disinformation that requires reading between the lines and NOT putting a band aid on it. Sometimes the only way to heal is to bleed out first.

that bleeding out is wisdom against the sickness of extremes found within the riddle of 1/2 full 1/2 empty.

the paradoxes that philosophers past left are much like a zen koan or a test of ones reason. most of these were formed during the age of reason or enlightenment after all. if one can only think logically then they are thinking with 1/2 full wisdom if one can only think emotionally then they can only think 1/2 empty wisdom... so we say from our perspective of either extreme that we are wise... yet only wise in logic is wise but only 1/2 wise and vice versa with emotion... balance both logic and emotion and only then does true reason that leads to pure ration or wisdom unfold.

this question is a test to see how one thinks... the answer is like an inkblot there is no wrong or right answer only a scale to hold up against ones intellect so that another may measure it.
