E: Can you just, you know, like, just tell me the answer?

J: Sorry?

E: You know, the answer. To everything.

What’s the point of love if it’s just disappear?

There has to be meaning to existence, otherwise the universe is made of pain and I don’t like the thought of that.

So, tell me the answer!

J: The more human I become, the less things make sense.

But that’s part of the fun. Right?

E: What do you mean?

J: If there were an answer I can give you to, how the universe works, it wouldn’t be special. It would be just a machinery fulfilling its cosmic design. It would be just a big, dumb food processor.

But, since nothing seems to make sense, when you find something or someone that does, it’s euphoria.


In all of this randomness, in this pandemonium, you and Chidi found each other and you had a life together.

Isn’t that remarkable?

E: Pandemonium is from Paradise Lost. Milton called the center of hell “pandemonium”, meaning “place of all demons”.

I guess all I can do is to embrace the Pandemonium.

Find happiness in the unique insanity of being here, now.

The fallacy of average


Those in the print media who dismiss the writing online because of its low average quality are missing an important point: no one reads the average blog. In the old world of channels, it meant something to talk about average quality, because that’s what you were getting whether you liked it or not. But now you can read any writer you want. So the average quality of writing online isn’t what the print media are competing against. They’re competing against the best writing online. And, like Microsoft, they’re losing.

Try something impossible


— 孔子

Sometimes you have to try something “impossible”, because you are looking for exceptions.

Even if you cannot find any existing exceptions, you may still be able to create some new ones, in case the opportunity cost is still acceptable.

iOS jailbreaking is the process of removing the limitations imposed by Apple on devices running the iOS operating system through the use of hardware/software exploits – such devices include the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and second generation Apple TV. Jailbreaking allows iOS users to gain root access to the operating system, allowing them to download additional applications, extensions, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store.

The One

The difficulty is that the probability is so low. The easiness is that the pool is so large, and you only have to find one.
