@LukeAlmighty @isaac at a certain point you also get the knowledge that overthinking and worrying isn't good if it's making you unhappy and stressing you out and become happy again. you can't claim to be a philosopher unless you realize that what you philosophize is ultimately fragile and usually beyond the scope of your control, and you can still live with that knowledge while also not dwelling on it too much. focus on the things that do make you happy and the things that can be changed as according to your ability.
@isaac reminds me of this young fellow, socrates. it's cool though, because after he drank the hemlock, he got to become some sort of oyster, living on the seabed.
i guess that's why those mugs are so tangy.
