Got too tired to take the test so i just brought it home to do, its inevitable that I’ll procrastinate this.

The way to solve the problem you see in life is to live in a way that will make the its problematic disappear, the experience of wondering at the existence of the world.. is the experience of seeing the world as a miracle.
“But can we conceive a being that isn’t capable of Will at tall, but only of Idea? In some sense this seems impossible. But if it were possible then there could also be a world without ethics. I keep on coming back to this: simply the happy life is good. But why should I live happily, then this of itself seems to me to be a tautological question; the happy life seems to be justified, of itself, it seems that it is the only right life.” (Culture and Value, Wittgenstein)
Wittgenstein’s writings on ethics: goodness, value, or meaning are not to found in the world; the right way involves acceptance of or agreement with the world, life, one who lives this way will see the world as a miracle. Troubles are like illnesses; you have to accept them: the worst thing you can do is rebel against them.The solution of the problem is seen in the vanishing of the problem
(Is not this the reason why men to whom after long doubting the sense of life became clear, could not say wherein this sense consisted?) (Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus 6.521, tr. Ogden)
- Friedrich Nietzsche
By speaking a lot about myself, I tell you only what I want you to know and attempt to shape your conceptions of me. I may also be trying to convince myself through repetition. And if my talk is empty-headed, I may hide my actual thoughts (from both of us). But as with all the aphorisms, you would be best off considering how it might apply to your own life. What constitutes you talking too much, and how do you conceal yourself through such behaviors? Or how are you taken in by others doing the same?
