Do you ever…
…look at your cup of coffee as you’re pouring it and think, “please work please work please work”?
"For humans are among the beings that for the time being are. The question of Being is not bloodless after all, but vital. For what? For recovery of the chance to ask what is happening with man on this earth the world over, not in terms of headlines but of less frantic and more frightful disclosures."

The “human condition” is a relatively new phrase, but the concept is ancient. All people are subject to a host of powerful influences on their poor little minds, no matter what social setting they come from. There are too many to name and they can be hard to articulate, but prominent among them are the need for a purpose, the need for affection, the need for security, anxiety about death, persistent curiosity, restlessness, idealism, and the lust for ego gratification.
These forces drive people to do anything and everything humans do: volunteer for churches, bulldoze forests, enlist in the army, talk to oneself, read philosophy books, gamble, gossip about celebrities, hug friends and family, spend a year in an ashram, hunt animals to extinction, save for a boat, commit suicide, write blog posts, hoard socks and underwear, steal the neighbor’s WiFi, burn ants with a magnifying glass, collect coins, drill for oil, tend gardens, run for office, avoid eye contact on the sidewalk, attend Klan rallies, buy oceanfront property, raise large families, or head off into the Alaskan wilderness with a 22 rifle and a bag of rice."

I’m not sure why I’m reblogging this…I just keep staring at it. what am I looking at? —- and now I know. Youtube: The clear water pearls are super absorbent polymers that can hold up 300 times their original weight in water. Polymers are individual molecules linked together to form long chains of molecules. Anything made of plastic is a form of a polymer. When there is no water in the bowl, you can see objects (like the clear water pearls) inside the bowl perfectly . This occurs because
rays of light scatter as they hit the objects in the bowl making them visible. After the clear water pearls absorb and fill with water they become invisible once submerged in water. (thanks crackerfawn)
