The day we died


I have intended for a while to write this at exactly one year after the inception of the blog. Regardless, after wavering between these two opposite ways, I chose to pursue the one which fit better to my state of mind. Clearly, it would have been more interesting the other way, but , after the commencement of an action, I cannot procrastinate it anymore. 

What is this all about, one might wonder. Well, the purpose is to explain in depth the origins of the title of this blog. Hardly could I go to the extent of claiming that it is ineffable. Under no circumstances would I conceal something which , unfortunately, lost much of its former importance. 

Without further introduction, let me proceed to the explanation. I have mentioned beforehand that I would rather avoid concealing things which are not significant to me – but what about things which are so valuable to me? My thoughts, my ideas, my desires, my fulfillments, my disappointments – they all used to belong only to myself. Indeed, I was an egotist, and the truth is – I still am. There is nothing wrong in being supercilious as long as you do not let it affect your life in a nefarious way. Furthermore, it might be even propitious on some occasions. I like to believe that knowledge is power, and the thrill of acknowledging that you have reached a certain level of sagacity is the pinnacle of one’s life.But how could one be ascertained as above the average in terms of intelligence if he keeps everything for himself? Now you begin to understand why I resorted to rescinding my initial censorship – from vanity,hubris, presumptuousness. However, it was a major step forward – I made my thoughts public, thus ending an important part of my life. It was the day my fortress of solitude reached its demise. It was the day that I died. And, because I am such an egocentrist, it was the day that We died.
