There is no such thing as enlightenment, actualization, art, community, spirit. Yet these are worthy goals to aspire to that have motivated humans forever. Yet these do not exist.
Things can be videotaped.
If your stomach is empty and you say, “my stomach is full,” your stomach will still be empty. If your soul is empty, and you buy a sandwich, your soul will still be empty. Why does this matter?
There is no such thing as happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment, wisdom. Yet they can be attained.
Not by abandoning the pursuit of things in the realm of things (hah! just try it).
But by pursuing them, as concepts, in the realm of concepts.
Pursue things in the realm of things.
Pursue concepts in the realm of concepts.
Goddess grant us the wisdom to tell them apart.
By the way… no thing matters.
