Memebrane Opens - Who Let the Thoughts Out?

Hello cruel world,

I hereby end my previous existence as a non-blogger by jumping into a web. I find it therefore fitting to sum up who I was up until this point, since this is the kind of thing that a recently soon-to-be-deceased is supposed to scribble before the deed.

I was the kind of person who thinks a couple of things about the things that he or she thinks - that nobody cares, that they are stupid (both my thoughts and their unlisteners), that there is no difference to be made in any way anyway... In short, why bother sharing insights with a brother.

But then again, why not put that to a test. I decided to inflict myself on the good people of the net instead, if for nothing else, then at least to shed some light on the spinners, that use it to entrap hapless little innocent creatures, suck their vital juices out and manipulate their hollowed husks like puppets.

I am of course being only metaphorical, if a bit naturalistic. Or at least as much as I can be only metaphorical, when there never was such a thing as *only* a metaphor, ever. If you're not affraid of spiders, you should be. Especially the metaphorical kind, messing with your mind.

For mind is a funny place. Funny meaning strange. There is a theory that our heads are filled with memes, thoughts that only use our minds as carriers. Which is an interesting warp of a much older idea of the Idea - the godlike eternal principle. Like Justice, Freedom, Beauty or Joy.

Meme, on the other hand, could be a beer commercial jingle. Or a fart joke. Or a hateful stereotype. Awe-inspiring greatness or deep inspiration are no longer a factor, now we settle for catchiness. While ideas had to be thought through, the less you use your brains, the better meme breeder you are.

And be sure that the internet is the largest meme breeding ground in the history of thought - the world wide mental cobweb. Here be the bottomless sea of spam, treacherous mountains of ads and dark forest of utter ignorance. Getting to the source of any thought in this domain is a real hero's quest.

But don't despair. Or do, it is your choice how you spend your free time. Assuming you actually are the one making the choices for you. At any rate, as long as you are conscious of where did the moving pictures and whispering suggestions in your mind come from, you are your own.

And this spider is working for you now.
