What is your opium?

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

What expands your mind? And how, why and where.

if music what kind?
I am listening to this, which inspires me to this thread.

Ive never heard anything quite like it in levity.

What style of classical music is that? It sounds sort of like Scriabian. It's complex but emotionally dry -- what I refer to as "autistic".

This is my "dope". It's masculine, like what you posted, but it is rhythmic and a bit more melodic.



I am generally unattracted to music that does not have a decent rhythm.
I got a philosophy degree, I'm not upset that I can't find work as a philosopher. It was my decision, and I knew that it wasn't a money making degree, so I get money elsewhere.

What expands my mind is not music but knowledge

Silence.. and from it pours forth my thoughts and musings... anything more is bound in hedonism.

Nowadays I prefer the silence of a calm mind that just lets thoughts come and go of their own volition
Too much noise can drown them out so I keep it low so that I can hear more clearly what is being said
