I’m 22. I created this blog to have an outlet for what I already do in my spare time–try to learn as much about the world in a useful way; not just knowing for the sake of knowing. If I were interested in that, I wouldn’t have dropped out of college.
All research and writings published on this site are my own, and I share freely with all. I only ask that you do not plagiarize me. I love comments, emails and debate so feel free to contact me and tell me your thoughts. (firstname.lastname@example.org) I’d love to talk about Stoicism, Shakespeare, history, depression, religion, hyperreality, the horrors of the educational system, or whatever else floats your trireme.
As for the blog’s title “The Human Fiction,” the idea behind it is that to be human is to be deluded. We lie to ourselves, take fictions as reality, and lie to others (directly or indirectly). It’s both fascinating and depressing.
Works in Progress:
1) Parallels between the Roman Republic and American Republic
2) Lessons from War: Hannibal
All that is gold does not glitter;
Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep root is not reached by the frost.
