How Is Sustainability An Ethical Decision?

Provided by Sarah Cole from PURC The Principle Of Sustainability: There are numerous definitions of sustainability. Like, the ‘entropy principle’ of sustainability states that life on Earth should not use more energy each day than is supplied by the Sun every single day. Herman Daly proposed these three principles of sustainability: non-renewable resources should not... Continue Reading →

Our own self-drawn box

Today my mind wanted to wonder about the limitation a human being has. Of course, this is not about our physical limitations, but more about our mental limitations, which seem to guide our behavior. With this in mind, we might say that our behavior is limited by our mind, right? If you think that some... Continue Reading →

On Choosing Happiness

Provided by Anthony Garner from https://zenothestoic.com/ I believe on any number of counts, including personal experience, that we have the power to choose to be happy but that the road is not altogether straightforward. Our philosopher friends would tell us that happiness is a “quale” – one of a number of different “qualia” which we humans can... Continue Reading →

“Small pleasures are important”

Even though I haven’t written anything about movies as I did last year, I remained a huge movies fan. Last night I watched The Two Popes, a recent movie directed by Fernando Meirelles, where I heard the quote “Small pleasures are important”. This made me think about how important they really are and why we... Continue Reading →

Destiny: A Myth?

This is a deep topic and I hope I’m as close to ready as I can for approaching it, so let’s jump into it. In the past three years I got very interested in self-development and I noticed a pattern across all motivational speakers: they all talk about finding your passion and following your destiny....

Our Mysterious Inner Universe

As always, I’m interested about the reason behind every human behavior and there is one answer that covers everything: the inner universe. The most interesting part about our inner universe is that we barely get to know it, and when we do know parts of it, we often go in the opposite direction. I believe... Continue Reading →

The World-Ruler

*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!* From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless... Continue Reading →

Mind vs Reality

Don’t worry, that “vs” is just for show. It’s not a battle, but there are differences, especially if we think about what “reality” really means. Have you ever searched for what Wikipedia says about reality? Here it is: “Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which... Continue Reading →

Life Assess

When you think about your life, what thoughts come to you? What about when you think about life in general? What’s the difference between those two perspectives? I’m now wondering if the feelings I have when I consider the worst parts of my life are the same with other people’s feelings. There are people on... Continue Reading →

Unstructured Writing

I always thought a piece of written content must be structured in such a way that it looks nice and that has a logical form from top to bottom. But does that apply to all types of writings? Lately, I changed my mind and I think it doesn’t. Structured writing is very useful when you... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On Letting Go.

Written by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved, yo. I'm a bit of a sentimental old fool. I love knickknacks and postcards and photos from years past. They're relics of a fleeting moment; they make up the personal museum of my life. So, sometimes it can be hard to just let. things. go. You know? And... Continue Reading →

Philosophy: an art of living

Provided by Cleveland Philosophic Advisor As this is my first guest post for Pointless Overthinking, it seemed appropriate to talk about philosophy as a way of living. It’s such an interesting idea, and although it differs from how one (usually) hears philosophy discussed today, I’ve noticed the idea (1) in the ancient period of Western... Continue Reading →

Holding a grudge? – Reblog

“When you stay upset on someone, you give your emotional control to that person every time you think about her. You’re allowing that person to control your emotions from a distance. By not forgiving her, you’re allowing that person to control your emotional life as if she would be with you in that moment and... Continue Reading →

The “curse” of being wrong

This is something most people want to avoid. This is basically why so many awesome ideas die. People cannot stand the fact they might be wrong. They just don’t, especially when they strongly believe in a certain idea. This is related to the fact that an idea or an opinion is strongly connected to the... Continue Reading →

Are you familiar with Wim Hof’s method of staying healthy? If you are, you know what I’m talking about. If not, this is going to be interesting.
