Protons, electrons...? Or just matter and energy?

Scientists proved the existence of sub-atomic particles: the proton, the electron, and the neutron. And now that is the old view of matter. Since these discoveries, more complex theories have been born: that of quarks, and even string theory, which says that the universe is made up of strings, and nothing else. These strings are like matter and energy in one.

Classic fairy tales tell of beautiful princesses and evil witches, queens, stepmothers, etc. But since then, some stories have explored the possibility that the antagonists just may have had a reason for their behaviour, and so stories like Star Wars – where the evil Darth Vadar is revealed to have once been a grief-stricken child – became infamous. We have grown wiser now, wise enough to realize that the world is not just black and white, good and evil, but rather it is just a bunch of matter with energy. People, plants, animals, rocks, water, the Earth, are all the pieces of the game. The rules of the game require each person to try to win: the source of conflict – or energy.

Therefore the laws of science prove that good and evil only appear to exist, just as an electron appears to exist as a separate entity, when really it may be thought of as a ball of strings of energy. The non-science-believers see electrons and protons everywhere and then get confused when their rules of life break down. Since no one will ever know all of science, this has happened and will happen to all of us.

Universal Dollar Balance

Every person has the same number of dollars. By dollars I mean... characteristics that have value. So everyone is unique in that they have a different combination of traits, but they are also all equal to each other. One person might have a five dollar bill, while another person might have 5 loonies. Somebody might have a five-star brain, no friends, and be ugly, while someone else might be spread out in everything (a little smart, a little attractive, a little social, a little deep-thinking, and so on). But this is why I hardly ever feel envy. And I never look at someone and feel super lucky that I'm not them. I'm just another combination of the same number of positive and negative traits, just like anybody else. So next time you look at the guy with his mouth open, asking you how to turn on his camera, you gotta think, "What does this person have to balance out their incredible stupidity?" They might be lucky, athletic, blissfully ignorant, friendly, attractive, happy -- anything.

Newton's Second Law of Life


Force = mass of an object x its acceleration

This law describes how we (as humans and part of the universe) go forward.

Transformed to apply to Success:

Success =  your pre-existing money x your luck in terms of finding a job

OR... Transformed to apply to Life:

Life = your total amount of happiness x your circumstances

Either way these things are a force over which you only have partial control.

Children vs Adults

What adults see:

(sinx + cosx)^2 + (sinx – cosx)^2

What children see:


These two expressions are equal. What do they do to us?!
