Here’s what came out, likely prompted by my having spent a few weeks mulling a few recent conversations, prevalent societal mores and the way we currently use technology to engage with other people:</p> <p><em>Metaphysics is a bitch.</em></p> <p><em>You either question your identity (which is pointless in a society where your online presence is mistaken for your identity) or your day-to-day experiences, which given the way we’ve eroded our social structure over the past three generations or so (removing most social gatherings other than mass ones idolising entertainment, ritualistic tribal warfare - that’s soccer for you lot - or hedonism) are now increasingly shaped by digital echoes of people sharing pictures of kittens (and hardly anything truly meaningful) on the Internet.</em></p> <p><em>Add doubt to the equation and you get either cynicism or nihilism - neither of which is conducive to happiness (the first because it will drive most people away and the second because it will drive everyone else away - which true cynics will arguably consider worthwhile).</em></p> <p><em>Stoicism might be a way out of either predicament, but it’s certainly too outr&eacute; for today’s fuzzy-wuzzy take on life given that it significantly lowers one’s ability to publish cute baby animal pictures and tends to be rather boring - like the British, but without that self-deprecating sense of humor.</em></p> <p><em>So I’m just going to stick to keeping my wit adequately sharpened (largely by trying it out on the select few who step too close) and enjoy the company of like minds.</em></p> <p><em>(The irony of my posting this on Facebook won’t be lost on those people.)</em></p> <p>I think this is symptomatic of my take on technology (and computing in particular), and will likely have more to say about it sometime. But, looking at the broader picture, it’s just another pointed hint (from myself to myself) that I can’t, <em>ever</em>, stop thinking about stuff and need some sort of higher purpose.</p><br/><small><a href="http://taoofmac.com/space/blog/2015/04/06/1940#a-short-rant-on-metaphysics" title="link to http://taoofmac.com/space/blog/2015/04/06/1940#a-short-rant-on-metaphysics">&#x262F;</a></small><p> <div style="-webkit-border-radius: 8px; font-size: small; background-color: #ccc; color: #000; border: 1px solid #aaa; margin: 0; padding: 3px; overflow: hidden;"><p style="padding; 2px; margin: 2px;"><a title="" href="http://taoofmac.com/"><img align="left" alt="Tao of Mac Icon" src="http://taoofmac.com/img/pavatar48.png"/></a> "<a href="http://taoofmac.com/space/blog/2015/04/06/1940#a-short-rant-on-metaphysics"><strong>A Short Rant On Metaphysics</strong></a>" was written by <a href="http://taoofmac.com/RuiCarmo">Rui Carmo</a> for <a href="http://taoofmac.com">The Tao of Mac</a> and was originally posted on Monday, Apr 6<sup>th</sup> 2015.

Maybe it’s the awesome sunlight streaming in by mid-afternoon…</p> <p>I can’t wait to see what manner of time-related bugs await us this Monday, but in general things tend to be a little more… logical this time of year.</p> <p>Which is good, because things have definitely been hectic. I have three separate drafts (in various degrees of completeless) I’ve been meaning to post, pretty much all of my personal projects are stalled (or progressing at the rate of a commit every week), my home office looks like it has more loose circuit boards than a Cray One, and I’m still trying to sort the (relatively few) photos I took the past three months.</p> <p>Work is somewhat to blame for this (including a nearly week-long hiatus on a little Marketing stint that I’m proud of yet somewhat bittersweet for not being credited for), but family birthdays, outings and friends (few but irreplaceable) shoulder most of that burden.</p> <p>Meanwhile, I’ve managed to catch up on a few non-technology-related things.</p> <p>For starters, I’ve finally watched <a href="http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0816692" title="link to tt0816692 on us.imdb.com" class="interwiki" rel="IMDB:tt0816692">Interstellar</a> (which I <a href="http://taoofmac.com/space/blog/2014/11/23/2245" class="wiki" title="blog/2014/11/23/2245 was updated 4 months, 2 weeks ago">meant to do last year</a>) and fall squarely on the camp of those who like it despite whatever gaping plot holes it might have (it’s called <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspension_of_disbelief" title="link to Suspension_of_disbelief on en.wikipedia.org" class="interwiki" rel="Wikipedia:Suspension_of_disbelief">suspension of disbelief</a>, folks, you might want to try it<sup id="fnref:1"><a class="anchor" href="http://taoofmac.com/space/blog/2015/03/29/1720#fn:1" rel="/space/blog/2015/03/29/1720#fn:1" title="link to fn:1 in this page">1</a></sup>) - a large swathe of its soundtrack is brilliant, too, which considerably helps.</p> <p>I also started reading <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1444761986/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=thtaofma-21&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1634&amp;creative=6738" class="interwiki" title="link to 1444761986 on www.amazon.co.uk" rel="/space/ASIN:1444761986">Becoming Steve Jobs</a>, which (at least for the first third) is broadly similar to <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CF66N3A/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=thtaofma-21&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1634&amp;creative=6738" title="link to B00CF66N3A on www.amazon.co.uk" class="interwiki" rel="ASIN:B00CF66N3A">Isaacson’s book</a>.
