Don’t think and work

The idea that you get paid for doing your own thinking (which I once regarded naively to be the job description of an academic philosopher). You can think anything, as long as… Your critical thinking is appreciated, provided that… There always has to be a forbidden door. And I am the kind of thinker that kicks in that door with full force. Hence, no philosopher “job” for me.

I once went to the marketplace selling “creative ideas”: no cure no pay. How quaint!

Thoughts are timeless, money is a means to get rid of the eternal “now”.

Or we would have to live forever…

Cioran once said that he was glad that the concept of suicide existed because otherwise, he would kill himself.

Perhaps this also applies to transhumanism: without the concept and idea that it is technologically not impossible, of eternal life, we would just have to live forever.
