I’m getting extremely sick and tired of people criticizing my actions. I am 21 years old I am a full grown ass man I know A LOT more about life than most 21 year olds I’d say I’m going in the right direction without your say. Thank you very much and for all the hating I’d say keep it up I don’t think that’s going to make things the way you wanted them and to me. Well at this point it only is making me stronger fuck that shit I don’t need it. I do what I want now.
That moment when it ALL sinks in.
The moment you realize you are blind.
The moment you have instant regret and hate.
The moment you realize someone was not as close to you as they made you feel they were.
The moment when you realize it was all for nothing.
The moment you realize you got literally NOTHING out of it.
The moment when you realize you are to nice and will always just be a tool to be used.
The moment when you say fuck the world and fuck women for being so cold hearted, untrusting, and evil.
NOW….Imagine all of those in one super AWESOME feeling. yeah…
You know what. It hurts. Used to the feeling now. Fuck it I’m over it.
Distinguishing Brain From Mind
-In coming years, neuroscience will answer questions we don’t even yet know to ask. Sometimes, though, focus on the brain is misleading.-
From the recent announcement of President Obama’s BRAIN Initiative to the Technicolor brain scans (“This is your brain on God/love/envy etc”) on magazine covers all around, neuroscience has captured the public imagination like never before.
Understanding the brain is of course essential to developing treatments for devastating illnesses like schizophrenia and Parkinson’s. More abstract but no less compelling, the functioning of the brain is intimately tied to our sense of self, our identity, our memories and aspirations. But the excitement to explore the brain has spawned a new fixation that my colleague Scott Lilienfeld and I call neurocentrism — the view that human behavior can be best explained by looking solely or primarily at the brain.
Sometimes the neural level of explanation is appropriate. When scientists develop diagnostic tests or a medications for, say, Alzheimer’s disease, they investigate the hallmarks of the condition: amyloid plaques that disrupt communication between neurons, and neurofibrillary tangles that degrade them.
Other times, a neural explanation can lead us astray. In my own field of addiction psychiatry, neurocentrism is ascendant — and not for the better. Thanks to heavy promotion by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, part of the National Institutes of Health, addiction has been labeled a “brain disease.” (via Distinguishing Brain From Mind - Sally Satel - The Atlantic)
