Initially, I had intended to write something concerning the matter of success. However, after I thought better about this, I realized that it would have been useless – after all, I have endeavored constantly in order to achieve it and I still regard it as a Utopia, for I am not interested in transient success. Conversely, I covet for a major one, immutable,steadfast. Therefore, the corollary of the subsequent statements would be that it was not something to deal with at the moment.

I have written already about time, and there is no need in reiterating my past ideas. However, the realm of time is so comprehensive, that a myriad of ideas could be related to it. However, one thought has particularly been on my mind for a while. Do not get too excited, it is something rather dull and the subject has been debated extensively. Where would I travel if I had the opportunity to transcend epochs? Historical events might seem tempting at the moment, but I am aware of the fact that the reality cannot equal my expectations. I would go, on the contrary, not in the past, but in the future – in the very last moments of this Universe, at the point of no return. Whether it will be a Big Rip, a Big Crunch, or any other imaginable eschatological presumption.

Bereft of remorse or of hope, condescendingly proud or unreasonably modest, no matter how I will become over the years, nothing will matter in that moment. To witness the demise of the Universe, that would be a privilege, a Utopia for the time being and, in fact, for the foreseeable future, taking into consideration the tardiness of scientific breakthroughs. I have no intent to be deemed awkward, so I believe that arguments to support my view are necessary. First of all, we spend our lives coping with death – this would mean winning against death, against the idea of death itself – witnessing one universe perishing whilst other is brewing – for I cannot accept the fact that the end of our Universe would preclude another one’s inception. Furthermore, being there would be similar to understanding how everything works – on a subtler level, I am sure that I would become familiar with every mystery of the Universe.

Are these arguments enough? Probably not, but words do not come easy when it comes to topics like this. We spend our lives concerned over the following day, unwilling to think of what will happen after we will die – but what will happen after this Universe dies or, better said, WHILST this Universe reaches its final moment?

Despre om


Omul nu este dat, ci devine. Dezideratul filozofiei existentialiste nu convine tuturor, din moment ce pentru multi este mult mai convenabil sa recurga la pretextul unui destin, unei naturi date, unor caracteristici imuabile ce reprezinta obstacole de netrecut. Cu toate acestea, valoarea de adevar a unei afirmatii nu depinde de calitatea ei de a starni fie repulsia, fie admiratia. Intr-adevar, este dur sa renunti la subterfugiul unei instante transcendente care iti coordoneaza viata dar, concomitent cu acest aparent dezavantaj, doar astfel poti fi liber , in deplinul sens al cuvantului. Fara a intra in detalii, este de mentionat faptul ca Sartre afirma ca, in scrierile lui, nu vrea sa arate cum ar trebui sa fie omul, ci doar sa il prezinte cum este, sa deconspire omul in conditia lui, fara plusuri si fara minusuri. Decenii mai tarziu, aceasta aplecare spre a descrie omul fara pretentia de a-l indrepta este inca un ideal maret, si prea putini se incumeta a incerca macar sa-l atinga. Cu toate acestea, este o dovada de ignoranta, in conditiile civilizatiei actuale, ca scrierile tale sa nu aiba macar tangential legatura cu un fel de indreptar al lui. Riscand sa declansez polemici, tin sa afirm ca asertiunea ca nu se poate vorbi despre o natura umana, de vreme ce aceasta este vesnic in schimbare, trebuie pretuita si este o conditie sine qua non a dezvoltarii intelectuale a tine cont de ea. Trebuie sa avem grija ce alegeri facem, trebuie sa cantarim cu atentie fiecare decizie, de vreme ce acestea pot fi ireversibile. Alegerile noastre vor defini ceea ce suntem, asadar nu putem risca fara motiv, nu ne putem baza pe instinct, cu toate ca, de multe ori, acesta ne poate ajuta mult mai bine decat ratiunea. Omul este libertate, este afirmatia curajoasa a aceluiasi Sartre. Dincolo de un aforism, este concomitent si o incercare de a descrie, pe cat posibil, inefabilul fapturii umane.
