“Art does not tolerate reason.”
Throughout his lifetime Albert Camus enjoyed visiting Museums and discussing artwork with artists. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is an art museum in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The museum opened in 1849. It houses the collections of Frans Jacob Otto Boijmans and Daniël George van Beuningen. In the collection, ranging from medieval to contemporary art, are works of Rembrandt, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali, and Wolfgang Gantner (a.ka. The Shit Scuplturer).
On a hot summer day in June, there was a shit exhibition going on in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen where you would be subjected to giant, imposing sculptures of turds. Albert Camus was intrigued when he first saw this Contemporary Art shit. …
“You Patreon, therefore I am.”
In 1618 Descartes visited Basilica della Santa Casa in Loreto in Italy to take part in a rave party. On that night; Rene got so high that he lost half of his memories which led him to reconstruct false memories later on in his life. Descartes liked hallucinogens: LSD, DMT, PCP, MXE, DOB, DVD, just give him any pill or cigarette and he will take it without asking you what it is. Descartes was on a different level of thought most of his lifetime.
After the rave party in Italy and the reconstruction of his memory, Descartes visited Rotterdam (Netherlands) before returning to France, it was there that he composed his first essay on method: Regulae ad Directionem Ingenii (Rules for the Direction of the Mind). When Descartes returned home to La Haye en Touraine in France, he sold all of his property on Amazon in order to invest in high quality LSD. …
“I told you I’ll be back.”
I told you I’ll be back.
Wow this place is worse than it used to be.
Is this the Kingdom of God?
If I had Instagram in my days this wouldn’t have happened,
I would’ve filmed my daily miracles and shared them with my followers.

“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.”
After a long rainy day at work, Camus rushes out of the office and stands on the sidewalk waiting for the afternoon bus. As the rain drops bombard Camus’ skull, he suddenly opens himself to the gentle indifference of the world. Camus gets on the bus and takes a seat at the back, he lights his red Gauloises with his red lighter and listens to Donald Trump’s speech on the radio: “… in less than two years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.” On Camus’ right sits a blonde girl named Brigitte Bardot, Camus turns his head towards her and remarks: “Every time I hear a political speech I am horrified at having, for years, heard nothing which sounded human. It is always the same words telling the same lies. And the fact that men accept this, that the people’s anger has not destroyed these hollow clowns, strikes me as proof that men attribute no importance to the way they are governed; that they gamble — yes, gamble — with a whole part of their life and their so called vital interests.” …
“We all know that light travels faster than sound. That’s why certain people appear bright until you hear them speak.”
After graduating in 1900 and receiving his academic teaching diploma from the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zürich, Einstein spent almost two frustrating years searching for a teaching post. He acquired a Swiss citizenship in February 1901 and secured a job in Bern as a police officer. However, Einstein was still highly interested in mathematics and physics at that time. …
“Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.”
Let’s be honest, being honest is hard. Merely being is hard. We lie to people all the time. We lie to our mothers, wives, clients, friends, and most importantly women in general. We are lying all the time, but are we being honest? Even though we are not being honest to others, we are being honest with ourselves and that is a good exercise. You don’t have to be honest with everybody; you just have to keep a good relationship with yourself.
Please have a cigar, take it from me: you don’t have to be honest to people all the time, you think that people make money because they’re being honest? If you want to be honest with others you better start searching for a new place to live, like a new universe. I got LSD if you want. Come on, it would be fun, I’ll psychoanalyze you. You know what they say: if it’s bitter it’s a spitter, I only get the good stuff though, trust Uncle Freud on this one. Are you in for some pre-coke before we start the session? They say it gets you even higher if you mix it with coke. I tried it a couple of times, one time I got really high on coke and LSD that I got to meet Shakespeare himself. You know what Shakespeare told me back then? …
“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens the door to the Casino.”
In the words of the great pimp Jalal El-Din Rumi:
You think that losing a loved one is a big loss? You obviously never been into a Casino. You never learn what loss is until you enter a Casino. If you want to be free you have to keep breaking your heart until it opens the door to the Casino.
What does your young heart know about love?
The love wound is similar to the opening of a slot machine; the slot is your wound, and you have to fill that wound with anything, like money or alcohol! …
“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find cartons full of pizza under my bed.”
Thus Spoke Nietzsche: “Beware of being a slave to the light!”
One night of the year 1882 in Leipzig, Nietzsche stops paying his electricity bills due to financial difficulties. Philosophers tend to die of hunger regardless of which century they’re in. Nietzsche reached for the last candle, then reached for his pen and started writing on the bedroom walls. He wrote and sighed; he wrote and howled and cried!
And thus he wrote:
Darkness is known today to symbolize “evil” (whatever that means) or mystery or fear. Darkness is almost a monster waiting to swallow you whole. It is the absence of light (and in some cases the absence of electricity). The light is good and the darkness is bad, consequently having constant electricity is good. However, this is too broad of a generalization, for not all of those who are under the light can be considered to be “good”, and many good people do indeed sit in the dark. …
“If you are depressed, your job is shitty. If you are anxious, you have no job. If you are at peace, then you’re probably dead.”
On a bright sunny day in the 5th century BC in the village of Chujen, the supreme old lord Lao Tzu sat under a Jasmine tree for about 6 hours straight. He revisited his soul and confronted his past gracefully with the heart of a lotus flower and stared deep and hard into his phone. He had a Pornhub premium account logged in on his Huawei P30 lite. …
“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
Socrates never went to college; he was too cool for that. All he cared about was challenging, questioning, and debating men of ignorance mistaking themselves as knowledgeable. Socrates was the antithesis of elitist mentality; he did not believe that any one person or any one school of thought is authoritative or has the wisdom to teach “stuff”. He was strictly against going to college and described it as “A place for pumping Heroine and Rock music”.
Socrates lost two of his friends: Chad and Aristippus, after they went to college and overdosed on Heroine. After that incident Socrates couldn’t accept the idea of going to college. For him, going to college is the same as going to meet your doom. And thus Socrates wrote after the death of his friends: “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” …
