That we are all going to die. The function of death.

The function of death is to limit in every sense:- demographic sense, political sense, economic sense, warring sense, etc. The fact that one day we are all going to die. It’s something likeable. Because I don’t imagine healthy earth if all ancestors were here, still living and not ageing. All ancestors: the most liberal, the most conservative, the evilest, the purest at heart, givers takers, leaders to like and leaders to hate.

Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love.

Rainer Maria Rilke



Death is there to make sure that we are all goods with best before and must be busy to get her/himself to the market before the value is lost. That value is in progress and a step back each human make. It’s a value in all possibilities, bad or good. When it is bad death is there to put a break before much harm is caused. So, that we are all going to die, it’s something to like. The function of death is to break infinity into finite and, therefore, cause vanity.

Human dreams are not a good thing. Sometimes they seek to build. Sometimes they seek to ruin it all. What’re the benefits of building in thousands of years a thing you can wipe out in a second? Humans are scary. Human dreams must be stopped. There must be a ceiling to stop them. Tell’em, “well boys and girls, end here”.

Death is there to do that. Life means suffering and joy combined, both being possibilities in every second. The function of death is to stop the repetition over and over of these two. So that once restless is restful. Every road must have an ending. If there is no end there is no journey in it.

When waiting for a train. A certain thing is the timetable is the to do its work. But it works this way that for arrival to be made, a departure must happen in real-time. The same train leaving can be back again at the same spot. Death seam to bring that into the human system. I must die so that in the future a better version of me must exist to correct where I faltered. Oppression, slavery, superiority and anything that disturbed the human race if it makes sense to me, chances are it will cease to make any sense to my future and future offspring. We must die.

When we die we leave our ideas behind so that they can be a starting point for what’s left and what comes in the future.

No matter how brilliantly, successfully and terribly you write your story. The function of death is to put a conclusion. Some are unlucky they have that conclusion earlier in their lives.

The three forms of knowledge


Most people would rather know everything about everything out there that doesn’t matter in building everything
inside and know not much about everything about the games they are playing in their lives and careers.
Knowledge comes in three forms. It’s not the quantity of it of the depth in it but the agreement between the three
forms that make quality.
The three aspects of knowledge of the three types of knowledge

  1. Raw and theoretical knowledge
    It compromises of all what’s known by a human before application. It’s the abstract detail a out everything and
    often the universal set to the other forms of knowledge, except it’s not applied yet.
  2. Knowledge in application.
    This is knowledge skipping out of its mind format and making it to the world out there where it can make
    achievements, catastrophes and so on. In fact, the function and purpose of knowledge is it’s application.
    Knowledge applied in knowledge serving a function.
  3. The knowledge of applying knowledge.
    Purely, whyat known needs to be applied, and what can cause the systematic application of what’s known is thus
    the knowledge of applying knowledge. It calculates the function knowledge can serve once applied, and therefore
    causes the seeking or the invitation of the best raw knowledge applicable to produce the best result. To stimulate
    the knowing system into action, and, therefore, cause relevant application of knowledge, an incessant
    subconscious communication must come from this side of knowing straight into the rest of the knowledge system:
    I want this applied or that which doesn’t exist.
    To reach a point where knowledge is relevantly applied you need to acquire it. And in most cases we only get to
    know what is not relevant to our nieches in life where knowledge can be applied. I can give an example here. I met
    farmer A back in my village at his field. He rents to end up with four hactres, and he farms a mixture of crops. So,
    when someone joined us we discussed European football for some minutes, and all the big transfers from 2010
    were in farmer A’s knowledge. But there came a time when the other guy, noticing he had a corner with soyabean,
    asked how much A tonne of soybeans can cost, or how much a protein source it can be as stock feed.
    The reason why an answer, even an estimate, never came out is compex. It is quite fair to say, however, hobbies
    invites us to knowing details about them even more than the things that give us life does. There are higher chances
    that farmer A’s rise, if it could happen, it can only happen through knowing much of his business than knowing
    much soccer. And the was we discussed it, we did it like sports reporters at TV.
    The are higher chances that when we reach the point of applying knowledge in our lives, which happens every
    minute, we are with insignificant knowledge to apply than we possibly have. Friends and the society around us
    would have influenced us into hobbies and knowledges to concentrate on. That, however, is also an advantage as
    you can only end up with a diversity of knowledge which can allow you to apply raw knowledge through more
    angles.
    In the quest of relevant knowledge many are left behind. Not because the can’t access it but because they ignore it
    and have more of irrelevant hobby knowledge. Some can’t access it due to other factors like the level of education
    and censorship.
    The application of knowledge is the ultimate purpose of knowledge. We know what we know for the purpose of
    applying what we know. In the process of applying knowledge some knowledge is not applied but it’s rather used
    in the process of applying knowledge, and, therefore, such a format if knowledge specializes on the “how” “why”

“when” “where” to apply what’s known. It works better when we discover things instead of seeing them, and in
this case a spoon can be used when a pen is missing and still produce the same results.
Discovery and the application of knowledge•
Since knowledge must serve a function during and after its application to produce results, discovering what to
know is the ultimate way to get through it as is discovering what to apply. Discovering what can work from what
cannot work is one thing, living in it is another.

Between wants, needs and purpose is a conflict. Between needs and wants is a purpose.

Needs, wants, purpose conflict.

What is a purpose? It is an outline of destinations, stops, starting points and journeys that saves a function in your life especially the one to prove the reason for your existence. It’s what you are living for not what you live with. Hence, a purpose is anything that can produce positive and enjoyable results in the long run if listened to.

What are needs? Needs are the very basic essentials you cannot live without. Needs are a requirement to every good state you enjoy in your life including life itself not death, happiness, and all other positives. Needs are the fuel everyone moves with. Shelter, clothing and food are good examples.

What are wants? Sometimes are neither basic nor essential. They are just what they are in our desires, a sense of our pride. Sometimes wants are extra essentials for those who can afford them. Whilst food is a need, a $200 dinner can be a want, especially when I need to borrow to afford it.

Your life is complete without your effort going into pushing forward a personal purpose or, in fact, without
ever having to come up with something that is purpose. Putting your purpose between wants and needs is downscaling that dinners down to something else, and use the change to put forward what’s in your plans and vision.

Mostly it’s fifty-fifty. Our effort, resources, time, money, strength and attention is half into our needs and half again into our wants. A thirty-three-and-a-half allocation would be necessary to each of the three. Our needs. Our wants. Our purpose. Because difference is made in including purpose in, not in the two we usually crowd our attention and effort in.

Success is a reward to a certain performance achieved and done purposefully. It comes when the tools at your exposal are used in such a way that they can only serve a function in your life. It comes when we focus more on what does pay in the future.

The conflict between the three is in the fact that what you put into acquiring your wants, once you put it there, it can’t be put into your need or purpose. You can’t have all of the three out of each dime, each minute and resource in your possession.

The essentials and the function, needs and purpose.

Needs are essential you cannot live without them. In counting your needs include the intangible ones like your happiness. You need to be happy and that’s essential in this life; that whenever a stream of sadness crouches in you find yourself equipped enough to pacify it and fare well even in grief. Most of the time happiness is an acquisition, and you must place a higher bid on the inner side to win it.

Once your needs are covered the advancements at the personal level can only come from acquiring or giving attention to those things that are functional. And that’s how purpose is achieved. A good example is in one of the paragraphs above. There are times when even dining is no longer done as an essential but a waste. When covering yourself is no longer an essential but more than you should exercise for you to have something left to push other productive things in your life, after having eaten a cheaper functional meal.

Function and purpose are also achieved if you choose to attain “feeling good” before “looking good“. It is a great thing to go with the little, live in the little if you are with an intention to achieve the most.

The things we can afford should not be things we can afford at a serious cost of our time, finances, resources, etc. To afford them at a lesser cost it can be a good thing to ignore them in the meantime while we buy functional items. Function pays. The function is discovered, and once you discover it you must allow purpose to be in your visibility so that you can step up.

What is fear? The bad or good, and overcoming it.

The Fear System

Fear.image.fear
Fear of the unknown* Informativus

What is fear? The term origins can be traced back to proto-Germanic feraz which means danger. Fær is the old English origin for middle English fere “sudden attack, calamity, danger”. Simply put, fear is a state of being afraid, after perceiving the danger that can result from avoiding or going through an experience, object, practice etc. The Christian Bible’s usage of the term fear is well-covered in this definition. Hindu writings, Bhagavad Gita being one of them, dwelled a lot on fear as well. Fear exists in the books of religion.

During the age of the internet we have seen more fears entering the English terminology. The Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) and the Fear Of a Better Option (FOBO). People are building more ways to communicate what’s fear and help in fighting it and understanding it. Yet, according to this source, the psychological term for fear of the unknown is supposed to be xenophobia. Yet, phobia is an extension applicable to any form of hate. What you are afraid of in this fear of the unknown sense is what you are likely to hate.

How fear of the unknown forms or is created in an individual being? Well, before one creates fear in himself. He creates the unknown which result in fear. Things are so as it is said that people sometimes fear those things they do not understand. Fear combines with the lack of understanding can make hate over the things not understood.

Fear exists in our paths to greatness as an obstacle. It’s far that put brakes when you are supposed to move. This is the exact fear discussed here, the ‘bad fear’. Fear is good as it is bad. When it is bad, it sort of stays in the qualities of the good fear, respected by the host and the society. It is a system of one’s beliefs, and beliefs may subtract the need to know.

The terrible thing with this fear is it can allow you to try, take some initial steps and have you forget that those steps are progress and quit. The bad fear is the best fear to fry your progress.

Fear is the worst thing that could happen to a human. It sort of gives him some confidence to act, when it is nothing. It gets one into moving backwards eventually since it’s never eyes to see nor the guts to discover. The format fear is in is fear itself. It is the biggest obstacle in the book of success.

Bad fear is pointless. Live in it you become pointless. It attacks the centre of solution-making first, the mind. When things are so you are worse of in fear that you can be in an intensive care unit.

You can say that you are afraid of lions. That is not different from saying that you hate to dine with the lions. Fear anything you don’t specifically understand and chose not ever understand it, you can only hate it.

It’s rather better not to ever step into that ring that is in there facing an opponent filled with it. In most cases, the best fruits of fear are not victory/. Fear can leave you worse than you were when you started.

The positive sides of fear

Fear exists in our systems of belief as a correctional centre of it. You are afraid to do scam business or to hurt someone physically or emotionally. That alone keeps you a good person in society when you have more chances to be a very bad person. You are disposed to not do things against your ethics, morality, your religion or principles, the law and so on.

Fear in this case ceases to be ‘bad fear’ to become ‘good fear’.

How to win over fear

You don’t need a powerful hand. You just have to list things through it. The very step towards overcoming fear is just feeling that you are adequate. You don’t need to be overconfident, though. When you set the fire and fail to have it burn allow patience to be your jacket in the cold.

Know what you are dealing with the best you can know it. The time is always there. Don’t waste it. Once you have the knowledge apply it. The third aspect of knowledge which is not knowledge itself, not its application is knowledge of applying knowledge.

Read: Discover, don’t see things and build a proper perspective.

Fail to abuse the resources at your exposal. As for me, I didn’t watch pirated movies on the village’s first computer which I own. That’s why I am here blogging for you.

Find some source of encouragement, build a friendship that is your ultimate strengthening resource. Their words are powerful as well as their actions. Allow only those who can deliver good words and experiences that can liquidate your fear.

Failure must be a moment to learn a bigger things in your game. Don’t allow it to cause much panic. Once you fail, allow yourself to access the parts of the failure that are yours and correct them and forget the parts of that failure that were caused by someone else.

Toxicity of desire how to change desire into positivity

When the words “Toxicity of desire” are used to form such a phrase the assumption is desire is toxic. But when desire is spoken of as a necessity in the mending of success stories you must best be questioning: How to change desire into positivity.

Toxicity of desire: Lessons from normal humans at the clinic and a hyena in the jungle.

My second dose of vaccine came on September 13, 2021. On this day I and other tens and tens of people at the clinic offended their reason of existence. It was a kid suffering from a malnutrition condition at the clinic which everyone ignored. His mother had to stand in the queue with us and behind much of us. Yet we were not ill.

It was the desire of anyone visiting the clinic to get all his/her issues solved earlier and leave. After all, spending hours at the clinic waiting for a jab that is two weeks overdue is not desirable. The woman and her malnutrition kid had to first pass through the temperature tests, and everyone including all of us who were healthy and had visited to get a jab had to. The temperature test process wasn’t anything to consume more than five minutes. But none allowed the kid a slot ahead of him/her. Excuses ranged from “I left my doors not locked” to “I have a visitor at my home”.

A young laughing hyena found itself the only of its kind alive in the plain. A terrible drought had hit, two years had passed without any rains until two weeks ago. For three days it rained softly and calmly as if to quench the tears of losses the wildlife had endured. But there was not much among the stocks of the living wildlife to answer to it positively as it wasn’t a guarantee of a smooth ever raining after. Calves, cubs and other offsprings, the signs were, were insignificant in numbers this year. And the surviving hyena simply had to learn to survive more by trying to hunt alone whereas hyenas are group hunters.

After the rain and floods after it, the hyena followed deposited material looking for anything to eat until it joined a pack of vultures on a carcass that was almost zero meat left. The mother to this young one had taught her that a thin layer of cartilage and the bone structure it wraps around the knee joins was the most delicious treat in the jungle. The young hyena found the front leg stripped of all the meat upon arrival and dragged it towards sloppy ground since such required her to be on a slope, on the downside of it, pin the bone with her legs while her teeth ate into it.

The vultures laughed. “Why is she ignoring the little meat left in favour of the bone, after all, we don’t eat bones.”

The meat was no match to what her mama had characterised as delicious and she would starve to death for that as she did it over and over, and day after day. With her age and the strength of her teeth taken into account, she could not eat many bones to cover up her nutritional needs. What could have saved her was not delicious but simply the meat.

Don’t chase for what’s exceptionally yours. Chase for what’s rare, for something that if missed you will never get a chance to possess it.

The toxicity of desire or the benefit of it

Usually in this life. We are shown the fancy things and that can make us like them. We are also shown that can afford them. Already when that happens our hearts are already loving it. What we are not shown are the true costs of affording that exact thing. The bigger cost is forgetting everything else that can matter. it is Forgetting a better life you can achieve without what you have been shown and which you can afford at serious costs. As we are probably all addicted people; that’s the second thing. Addiction plays a bigger part. It helps in showing us what we can afford and while hiding the costs of affording what we can afford.

A desire is irrational. So everything that plays in the chemistry of the heart is with its tendencies to cause harm unless it’s capitalised on to produce positives. Desire is said to be essential in building success. It is also heavily involved in erasing the possibilities of success. So, if the desire is toxic, why is it a benefit of it to the few others. Ladies and gentlemen each one of us, every second, is getting the toxicity of desire or the benefit of it.

If we are allowed to describe an adult life in the context of a moving bus with its passengers. Desire would not be the wheels. Desire is the driver. Each one of us is seated in the backseat and we can’t be heard all the time when we voice at our desires. We are very unlucky that we can’t control or stop the desire as long as our wheels of life are moving. What we can do is just to use it in building the most positive things in our lives.

It can be a desire to be happy. When you desire to be happy it means without being happy you are not fulfilled. The best you can do is to allow that happiness to be out of the least instead of the most you can find. In the same manner, successful people are people who simply directed desire into a bigger vision in life instead of simply allowing it to drive recklessly.

Changing desire into positivity

A desire is the inner working of the human’s wants. It’s the need to emotionally possess, control, be in charge, or even get free and exploit. A desire is largely a terrible thing than it is a good one. Grandfather and I had time to talk about the structures build from around 700 (Great Zimbabwe) to 200 (others) years ago in Zimbabwe. A novel is quoted by some as a source to prove that the stone structures were pilled up into UNESCO-heritage-class monuments at the cost of virtually any man involved in the constructed process. Men had to roll tonnes of stones without the aid of draught power or pulleys which weren’t our thing back then. The story in the novel picked at events happening not so many decades before the colonisation. The building of a second structure resembling Great Zimbabwe happened in the context of the king who wanted a tower that would allow him to touch the moon. 

The novel is wrong as a work of fiction. But it truly showed us the true nature of us humans, and the question left is how to turn that terrible monster, desire, into something positive and make our lives better and the world better places? Here is how to change desire into positivity:

  • Build a vision, not plans. Construct a roadmap, don’t build a highway.
  • Build layers of good habits in you life daily. With good habits there is never enough of it. You can read “Atomic Habits” by James Clear.
  • Have all the detail that can matter in your life. Don’t be a stranger to yourself. Admit what you are to correct it from that point. It must not take anyone to point what you are not at par.
  • Do some value analysis of the things you may want to achieve before you can go for them. It is a great deal to know the value you can give to yourself, the society and your family and the meaning of it. Some things you desire when achieved can simply subtract.
  • Have a serious consideration for others. Though you can not give them your love you can give them your respect.
  • Self-respect is essential in making a person. It is a clear outline of what you can allow yourself to go through, to feel, to be and be involved in.
  • Don’t chase for what’s exceptionally yours. Chase for what’s rare, for something that if missed you will never get a chance to possess it. The hyena here did the opposite and ended up on the losing side.
  • Put some light into your past mistakes to know if toxic desire had been ionvolved in making them. Distance a mistake from a failure for a failure is a better fellow between it and a mistake.
  • Allow yourself to be wrong to be wrong to correct yourself. If you fall on the wrong side no one can imprison you for that. Judge yourself openly, and build yourself in the way.
  • Build inner superiority (interiority). It can beat outter superiority (superiority) or inner weakness (inferirioty). Watch a TedTalks video where this interiority thing is coming from.
  • Have the patience where it is needed not the confidence. Patience can referee your desire into proper results.

What to chase after? Chase for rare opportunities.

What to chase after in life? This is a good question to ask because every second you meet a situation in which you must decide between two or more things; between what’s good and what’s bad; between what’s present and what’s absent; between what’s satisfying in the present and what may bring satisfaction in the future, and so on. In our journeys to greatness or our demise, the choices we make are then followed by priorities and motives to determine the extent of our success.

Chase for things that you will never have a chance to once gone

If you don’t get into marriage at eighteen it means at twenty you can get a chance, if not so at twenty-five you can get it, if not at twenty-five maybe at thirty-five or later than that. It is exceptionally your thing that one day you will be in marriage if you want to be in a marriage one day. But most of the time we fight hard for the things that are exceptionally ours, the things we can get any time later than now, and forget the things that if not achieved now there is never to be a chance, ever.

If I lose that interview for a top job, chances are I will not find another top job interview earlier. It’s a chance that if erased it’s erased for sure and I can’t have a voice at it. It is what to chase after and fight for.

If a certain type of cancer crouches into a family. Then suddenly it’s curable for the time being before it gets into an incurable stage at a cost that can leave the family three times poorer than it is now. Wasting money on it is better than not. Because curing it now is a chance that if erased it won’t be available two years after whilst money is a different thing.

If you chase for the things that are rare and simply wait for those that are exceptionally yours and, therefore, not rare to you, you can flourish. By doing so you are approaching your desire and have it result in more positives than negatives as desire can be toxic. Because by default we are bound to simply chase after the things that are exceptionally ours, save that money in the account while a family member suffers from that cancer. The thing is those things that are exceptionally ours are enticing.

At the family level, in corporate systems, at the national level and in religious organisations, some decisions made wrongly involved chasing after things that were exceptional and not rare to the group. Nokia foresaw the hints of its downfall in early 2009 when the iPhone’s form-factor was proving to be a big deal. Instead of just delivering a complete device that would be at the market with more than iPhone’s offering they simply put only a camera to their usual hardware, those things they had become experts in delivering. A capable Operating System was needed and the money to even give developers with the most downloads, free, and therefore build a perfect app store by subsidizing developers with numerous downloads. A fluid capacitative touchscreen instead of the “ATM touchscreen tech”/TFT resistive touchscreen was needed. That screen came in November 2009, almost three years after Apple had introduced it.

There are times when new strengths must be built instead of just investing in those we have already. Chasing must be reserved for what’s rare or what’s not in our possession. That being said there are sometimes when something is not rare but just a thing not in our possession. At a personal level, this even inhibits building more better habits. Useful ones we don’t have are always left out in the habit-building system in favour of strengthening the ones in us already.

Success is rare than the opposite of it. Sadness is just an inch away from you while happiness is miles off. Spreading your bed every morning you wake up is a habit as easier to live in than other habits that must be involved in building your true path. So, it’s success, it’s happiness, building the true path to success, among other things, that you must chase after.
