Through out history, singular men have dominated the realms of their perspective
fields. Ghandi brought radical change through civil disobedience; Hitler brought a
radical change in the geography, among other things, with his belief in the Third
Reich; Jesus, Buddha, Alexander, Martin Luther King. All these men were singular but
What distinguishes these men is the singularly poignant idea that they held.
Poignant, not necessarily in content, but rather in how steadfastly they did not
sway. It would seem then, that in order to affect some mass change, one must cling to
an idea and find the few allies amidst the sea of detractors.
It's interesting to go about and methodically mapping the minds of these life
altering men - some good, some bad. But I have been told on numerous occasions, to
the point of exasperation, "Manny you can change the world with your mind." So having
heard this line parroted by the procession of those I know, it infuriates me that
they either pander to my ego, or if they are correct, how short I have fallen from
But then again, Jesus disappeared through out Apostolic accounts of his life from the
age of 13 to the age of some odd thirty years old.
The next question, having a head full of useless and contradicting ideas - nihilism,
creationism, empiricism, post-modernism, linguistic philosophy - which one of them is
the key. Which of them is correct. Because without the boring proof I've devised on
existence and existent consciousnesses within creation, we can all have our leashed
version of reality....
X = ?
My current diaspora of a life must first coalesce into a conclusion. From that
conclusion a theory; from a theory into an idea; and finally hold onto that singular
idea, I being the singular man, and run with it.
A travesty I am, yet.
