Divinity?

Logic

Divinity

WHAT IS THEIR PURPOSE?

And that was the first half of the English worksheet. In order to examine the character that is Faustus, we examined the areas of study that he rejected in favor of black magic. Logic, medicine, and law I had down. But Divinity...I wondered aloud, what the hell is Divinity's purpose?

"Is it to..." I began, "...to satisfy human curiosity? Kind of explain the unknown."

"Yeah. And to establish a set of morals," My partner replied immediately.

This confused me. "I thought that would fall under Law."

"But Law already exists."

"No but humans make Law to control moral behavior," I begin to babble. "I never really associated morals with religion--"

"I think there's a big connection between religion and morals," My partner informed me seriously. My mouth twitched.

"I'll put morals with a question mark," I muttered.

But really. From an Atheist's point of view, I see religion as a result of human fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of death. Egyptian culture was obsessed with death, to the extent of creating an entire new world for the dead to live in, depicting it through craftsmanship and architecture. Native American creation stories uncovered the mystery of nature to them--the earth was a flat turtle, or the people emerged from the center of the earth. Prayer is widespread. Christians pray to repent for their sins, to thank God for earthly goods, to plead for certain events. Hindus pray to find peace, balance. Muslims pray systematically with a definite schedule to connect with Allah. When you have gods with you, you are never alone. When religious community surrounds you, you are never alone. Religion is, if anything, an emotional comfort.

Seeing the destruction it has also caused, I cannot associate religion with moral behavior.

{4] Dream Diary

THE DREAM:

...So many insects. I went to a particular tree and got caught in these thorns. My dad suddenly appeared--apparently he'd been working outside for a long time--and helped me get rid of them and hammered them to a long cup-like object. They thus turned into nails. But apparently they were truly insects. And then something the size of a golf ball began buzzing around near my right hand, its consistency reminding me of a horsefly. Scared out of my mind, I caught it and stuffed it in an open bag. My dad and my best friend's mom both looked at me and suggested I wait, because it could already be dead. But as I circled it, the bag came loose and a skinny, orange frog about 10x the size of the insect hopped out. The last thing I remembered was hoping the frog wouldn't come back. I then woke up.

THE CAUSE:

I never got enough sleep during the week. And this morning I had to wake up early again to take the math SAT II. So nap --> unsettling sleep. Stress --> unsettling sleep. Already having mosquito bites and having a run-in with a horsefly a couple months ago --> unsettling sleep.

THE MEANING:
  • "To dream of thorns, is an omen of dissatisfaction, and evil will surround every effort to advancement." (source)
  • "To see a bug in your dream, suggests that you are worried about something. It is symbolic of your anxieties and/or fears." (source)
  • "As revealed in mythology, frogs, as water dwellers, are associated with the unconscious. When they appear in dreams, they symbolize something associated with the deeper aspects of ourselves -- images of the hidden aspects of ourselves. They may represent hidden emotions, thoughts, or even creative aspects of which we may not be aware." (source)

A3 October 5 at 9:07pm
sorry about today after school. i was totally kidding around. no hard feelings?

A2 October 5 at 9:55pm
I'm sorry too, that was my surprised reaction. No hard feelings. =)

Why must we hide our apologies as if they are something to be ashamed of? Why do we insult each other when there are peers and witnesses around? When did we learn that it was acceptable to be cruel? When did we learn that one must counter cruelty with cruelty?

These are questions I cannot answer. Damn it.

HEART

Just got back from WUSTL (and with my mom just starting the hour and a half drive to the airport, what else am I supposed to do but open my laptop). Talking about rainbow hearts in the wee hours of the morning is always a favorite thing.

You have your volunteers and your dancers. Sometimes it's hard to tell who's who. Most of the time - especially with down syndrome - you know who to target. You know who to speak most kindly too. Sometimes it's subtle and you're frightened you might offend someone. But really, it's all about getting everyone as hyper as you are.

They have wild eyes and jerky movements and some have it worse than others. But they still make me smile.

I'm glad to be back.
