The Crisp Sounds Of Reality

Life for so many people by default is living in a fairytale. They were raised to believe in majestic, almighty deities or spirits that will help guide them through life and the afterlife. They don't…Continue

Natural and Supernatural?

A while ago my sister went on one of her rants about how she perceives the world. She calls things like fire, water, earth, air, light, and dark, "elements". We who are familiar with elements in…Continue

I'm making this post because it just feels like there's no need to speak about things anymore. Nothing seems to get accomplished anyways so what's the point of doing so. Most arguments are nothing…Continue

"Hi Ari, What you are describing sounds like depression. I think you owe it to yourself to seek out a doctor, and see if anti-depressants would be an option. It's important that you see a psychiatrist because they can get the diagnosis just…"

Getting Worse...

I'm sitting here right now staring at my screen with a blank face. I've done all I could on my own. I have started eating better, getting more active, listening to nostalgic music.... Feels like I've done it all. Life appears to be almost completely bleak. None of it seems to be working. 5 days after "feeling down" I have become "being down". All seems pointless and I don't care much about anything anymore.What is wrong with me? I've been stalling on professional help for the last 4 years when…See More

Why you left your religion.
Basically I wasn't very religious to begin with. I lost faith completely around 14-15 years old. I may not know if there is a god, but I'm willing to take a stand against religion in a firm manner. I believe it is a man-made disguise to pressure unnecessary conformity and boundaries between us as human beings. Most of the world may not see it that way, but I do...

Well I wanted too stay in touch with people interested in the project so I could send a private link to it when's it's finished. The films I make are for communities like this one.

Well I really think this film will be for you then. The film is quite open but it doesn't let any religious bs sway it. I'll send you a link to it when it's done. Which should be just a couple months from now.

Ari, when kids grow up in violent homes, their behavior doesn't always comply with either logic or morality. I didn't mess up anyone's home; I stole a paperback book. My two brothers also briefly engaged in petty crime. None of us got caught and we all gave up crime.

When North Korea invaded South Korea, the U.S. government sent me to fight in the resulting war. The GI Bill made college possible and may have saved me from a life of crime.
