“We do not set out from what men say, imagine, conceive, nor from men as narrated, thought of, imagined, conceived, in order to arrive at men in the flesh....it is rather men who, developing their material production and their material intercourse, alter, along with this their real existence, their thinking and the products of their thinking. Life is not determined by consciousness, but consciousness by life” (Marx and Engels, The German Ideology, trans. Roy Pascal (New York, 1947), pp. 14-15).
Well I simply disagree. Though you claim I am taken by the ideological spewings of the superstructure, spirit precedes material. Consciousness is separate from spirit. A mind set on the flesh is death, a mind set on the spirit is life; there is no other truth.
The kitchen is closed at my house. And I'm starving in my sleep. Even though I ate 5 hamburger patties, two oranges, a waffle and two pieces of bread with penutbutter and maple suryp. I really hope I can fit in another meal today: I was planning on three burritos.
I need to eat close to 3000 calories a day if i want to gain weight, which I think is really ridiculous.
Grand Total.....................1600 Calories!!! How do people eat 3000 Plus Calories a day? Even if i eat my three burritos tonight 140x3=420 | 420 + 1600 = 2020.
Well after these shocking results I found a weight gain calculator and it says I should consume at least 2473 calories to maintain weight, and 2720 is ideal for putting on muscle mass. So I should eat those burritos and go pick up another two double meats from IN-N-Out. Gaining weight is expensive. I need to get a real job so I can join the fat cats of capitalism.
Refraction is an amazing thing. Light bends, it moves in differnet directions at different frequencies; what is more amazing is rain, droplets of water--comming from what window in Heaven I know not(ok it's a cloud, but i prefer the notion that their are seas in the sky)--each one a prism.
Today on my way home from school, as it was raining, and as I lamented one of the defeated and spurious designs of my heart, I looked to my left, and there was the most beautiful rainbow comming down from the sky and descending behind a campus building. A rainbow for me--the light that entered my eye, no one else saw. A sign of the covenant to Moses and Man that God would never destroy all living things again with a flood. By close association I appropriated also God's blessing as He gave it: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth."
