Reaction and Action

Law III: To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction: or the forces of two bodies on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions.

(Isaac Newton)


Our actions are our response to the outer actions. 

   We keep reacting to different situations that happen directly or indirectly with us. That's why our actions could be called "reactions" in the same way as an action of response. What we create, what we decide, what we do are actually in consistent reaction with our surroundings.

   That's why the there always were doubts in the actual meaning of "freedom". Thus, Jean Paul Sartre, rejecting determinism, stated that it's our own responsibility and freedom to our actions and no divine will can control it. Actually it's continuation of Nietzsche's "God is dead". Nietzsche's idea of it was that we no longer

How Smoking Happens and How to Stop it

    It was a new day for me to go to exam with a bottle of water, my bag on my shoulder and without the last thing I used to take with me before. The Cigarette Pack!

Smoking Boy with Chicken
    Leo Babauta's tips on it helped me to know more about the process.

What I Learned From A Boiling Teapot

I am a huge fan of coffee drinking. Mostly when I'm tired after a long day outside. I finish my supper, then I turn on my laptop, check my emails, facebook notifications. Then after I read some good articles I put the teapot on the stove to boil to make a coffee. Usually I don't expect it to boil when I read articles. I am always pretty sure (remember that word) that it's not gonna boil early. After a few minutes, as soon as I move my body from my seat to check it, I see that pot was already boiling for more time than I expected. It's always like that. It was boiling for all that time I thought it's just warming up. What a pot!

Moral Conclusion:

If you are PRETTY SURE about something, it's quite the opposite. Something is wrong with that, man. Go and check it out again. That's how it is with me.

Why You Should Stop Reading about Happiness

   “People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.” 

― Abraham Lincoln 

Le Feu Follet
 I've read tons of articles on happiness, not for the reason to be happy or happier, but because of my curiosity to know what they are writing and what is the difference between them. Most of the sites I visited are top-visited and which are enough famous among certain groups. What I found in them is that you should change your perspective of happiness, just be aware of the situation (of bad situation for sure) and don't get depressed and blah blah blah. What I dislike in these articles is that they are too commonplace and they are everywhere presenting the same so-called "truth".

     "Please smile, life is beautiful" or "just breathe deeply" could hardly work for someone who is busy at work all the time and getting home at night reading that article with a big tiredness and thinking about his shitty life and job.

    Let me tell you my story.

Evolution of Asked Questions (Or How To Deal With Life and Money)

People are used to ask questions and try to find answers to them as soon as they encounter to a certain problem. Since our childhood we used to ask about everything we didn't know and that was the part of our childhood curiosity.
We saw our father, mom and maybe brothers and sisters. Then relatives. We wanted to call them. We wanted them to have a name for everybody and everything. That's why our first lesson in school was alphabet.
Then as we got new friends we started counting our surrounding. That's why we started learning numbers. But we had to talk to them. That's why we had the language lessons at the same time. For us it was enough, even sometimes we were getting tired and bored. Then we had more lessons. History, biology, second language and so on. We started asking questions on our past, on the nature and culture. We understood that in order to stay "cool" we have to learn as much as we can. Even some knowledge without a reason could make a big difference in some arguments.

 It was a game. The same way we started playing them before. But now it was a bigger game. Going deeper and deeper we understood that it's impossible to know everything we want. Some questions got unanswered and that's why we started feeling down. We got acquainted with philosophy, we started thinking more and more. As we learned more, we started having more questions. Answers still were not enough and they got less and less satisfactory.

The love from the first sight was unanswered.
