I dreamed there was a major schism in the church as to the nature of the relationship between the individual and God. This was succinctly summarized into two nearly diametric stances, ‘father’ and ‘mother’ -

'father' representing a hierarchical faith based on obedience, fostering an instructor-pupil relationship that takes a fundamentalist, word-is-law approach to religious texts,

and ‘mother’ representing a communal faith based on love, embodying a parent-child relationship, and taking a more relaxed approach to scripture (relegating the stories to parables open to interpretation, instead of literal object lessons)

Now I know my subconscious pirated that theme from somewhere, I just can’t place the source. If this rings any bells with anyone - book, tv, film, etc - let me know. I’ll probably have this on the tip of my tongue until I figure it out.

I need to see this episode again just so I can figure out exactly what the heck they built.

Hello Kitty isn’t a cat? Well, there goes the foundation of all meaning. The nature of reality is falling away from me and I’m spiraling towards oblivion. Looks like I’ll have to abandon my life’s work, 'Kawaii as the Metaphysical Fulcrum'

"With panopticism, something altogether different would come into being; there would no longer be inquiry, but supervision [surveillance] and examination. It was no longer a matter of reconstituting an event, but something-or, rather, someone-who needed total, uninterrupted supervision. A constant supervision of individuals by someone who exercised a power over them-schoolteacher, foreman, physician, psychiatrist, prison warden-and who, so long as he exercised power, had the possibility of both supervising and constituting a knowledge concerning those he supervised. A knowledge that now was no longer about determining whether or not something had occurred; rather, it was about whether an individual was behaving as he should, in accordance with the rule or not, and whether he was progressing or not. This new knowledge was no longer organized around the questions: “Was this done? Who did it?” It was no longer organized in terms of presence and absence, of existence and nonexistence; it was organized around the norm, in terms of what was normal or not, correct or not, in terms of what one must do or not do."

I would never do a commercial, but if I did endorse something it’d probably read something like “Shout out to this brand of vodka - it’s cheaper than therapy.”

Its weird when porn blogs follow me. I have nothing to offer you. Nothing. The most sexual thing I’ve ever posted was a gif set of Tom Hiddleston. He was clothed, but he might have winked at the camera. Probably not the best example, but you get my point.

Spanish is a beautiful language. You don’t say “I love you” in Spanish, you say “yo quiero comer culo” which translates to “you are the light of my life” which I think is one of the most beautiful things to say to someone

"Jenny Holzer’s famous truism “Protect me from what I want” renders in a very precise way the fundamental ambiguity of the hysterical position. It can either be read as an ironic reference to the standard male chauvinist wisdom that a woman, when left to herself, gets caught in the self-destructive fury, so that she must be protected from herself by the benevolent male domination: “Protect me from the excessive self-destructive desire in me that I myself am not able to dominate.” Or it can be read in a more radical way, as pointing towards the fact that in today’s patriarchal society, woman’s desire is radically alienated, that she desires what men expect her to desire, that she desires to be desired by men. In this case, “Protect me from what I want” means “What I want, precisely when I seem to formulate my authentic innermost longing, is already imposed on me by the patriarchal order that tells me what to desire, so the first condition of my liberation is that I break up the vicious cycle of my alienated desire and learn to formulate my desire in an autonomous way.”"
