Reliable things

These times are rather Nietzschean: our burning, hysterical will is able to override all reality, all the uncomfortable empirical and logical circumstances. You can just ignore every contradictory thing and feel the way you want to feel, happily go down the long slide. For a brief while at least, for the timet it takes to ignore these circumstances here, these reliable things: empirism, logic, mathematics, death. And also, not to forget, our half-instinct of being kind, constructive, curious, flexible, hopeful. No, none of these things for these times, for the fear is too intense, the hatred too inviting, the flesh too weak.
