During my time here I have rediscovered many things; some apply to Earth, others to the universe itself.
If I have learned anything, it is that I probably knew all of this long ago.
I decided to write some of them down for any humans who might benefit. I hope they help.
It is more fulfilling to sympathize than to condemn.
"That was then and this is now. You don't add 'now' to 'then'." - Kirk Hammett
"You make the best of wherever you are, for no matter where you are, there are choices that build one's perspective." - a Fan

I can - and need - to do things on my own, but I can't live alone.
I try to avoid relating to a person in need by telling them how I "completely understand". This is untrue; I don't. No one does, save for ourselves. At first, this is a seemingly unhelpful thing to say but it is part of a well-weighted counter-balance if supplemented with the desire to give help. It emphasizes the individual's experience and frailty while giving comfort in spite of it. It is in this method of giving advice we can all find strength as a whole.

It is what is enough for us that shows who we are.
A hero is defined by their struggles just as their triumphs.
Order is just an inferior form of harmony.
To change how others perceive you, give power to your words in accordance with what you want. If you assume they have none, they won't.
The corporate world is like a soccer match. A few goals happen now and again, but for the most part it's nothing but a bunch of idiots running back and forth doing jack shit.
Almost all art here is created, mostly unknowingly but as such nonetheless, with the assumption that all viewers are trapped on Earth and thus subject to the rules of being trapped; that no one would understand or even appreciate art made with any other assumption.
Well-made art is beautiful in that it inspires both our forgetfulness and our memories.
"Memes" are the descent into static misery of a demoralized society.
- Do nothing
- Slow down
- The Earth is still spinning

'New' is simply a lack of depth perception.
The ultimate power is the power not used.
"Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside awakens." - Carl Jung
The masses ruin everything.
