Silliness: When The Words Get Slippery
18. Protense: I've read Kant over and again, and I know there's good stuff in there, but holy crap, that's a lot of work for just a few words to handle. Something something dynamical antinomies. I'm reading and things are getting good and then I realize I need to put another hour into that last sentence and then I start wondering what's happening on Twitter and the thing is that I don't even like Twitter because it's almost as bad for ya as Facebook.
Contra, viz: Coffee and oranges, again. The sunlight on our skin. When the morning stars sang together.
18.b. Parenthetical note: (We are stardust, we are golden, we are caught in the devil's bargain, and we've got to get ourselves back to the Garden.)
18.e. Parenthetical note: (Halting problem. Cherubim barring the eastern gate, the flaming sword turning every which way.)
20. Contense: This self-referential post is a non-fungible token on which you are [virtually] invited to bid.
Contra, in loc cit: The universe doesn't know you exist but you're the way the universe becomes self-aware. The proof of this is left as an exercise for the reader.
44. Vertense: Godot was never coming. That wasn't the point at all.
Contra, scilicet: Neither sin nor redemption are meaningful ideas in the absence of forgiveness. Louder, for the people in the back: Beneficence is a duty.
45. Extense: I'm not mad about the what happened to Kurtz and I can't see that anyone else should be but you do you. I can't spend time on things like that because I've got Kant to read.
Contra, D.V.: Plenty of things are true but can't be, which is not exactly what Gödel was on about, but that kind of distinction is not as important as it might seem. The proof of this is left as an exercise for the AI.
Contra, riddim: One good thing about music: when it hits, you feel no pain.
46. Retense: Words some are up made posts this like. Funny certain person kind only. Fractured syntax meaning reveals tedious albeit.
Contra, exultant: My God, it's full of stars.
