…. ok but, AU where Milo is Piers’s bodyguard? People always understimate him bc he looks so nice and nonthreatening but as soon as they cause trouble, he just, lifts them out of the way with the kind of smile that would freeze hell over
Meanwhile Piers’s pretty sure he doesn’t actually need a bodyguard but who is he to complain when the bodyguard’s so cute and strong?
can we take a moment to appreciate Piers’s dedication to his aesthetic? bringing the mic on the field even when trying to save the day
Oscar Peterson, age 20, at Hamilton Ontario Convalescence Centre
An article which briefly dives into the creation of Mallory, her friends, and her world, as well as offering a few words on the psychology, philosophy, and inspirations for the artwork and narrative style.
Raihan calls Piers “bro” in french in the post game events and I think that’s hilarious
i think a lot of people are gonna get burned real hard when they realize that all their therapy heroes are just the same as every other therapist in the whole world and a large part of our societal problems themselves
Had a very weird thought last night as I was sort of mulling over the general Derrida stuff I posted about last night. One good thing about posting these things is that it’s very easy to get buried in a world of concepts, and communicating has the great effect of allowing an outside source to sort of hit the “reset” button and bring you back out to the low-resolution picture. This one gets pretty wild and fun, though.
Anyway, so Derrida had this idea that language is an insufficient method for conveying an idea because the recipient can never get a perfect 1/1 transference of the idea from the mind that conceived of it to the mind to whom it is being communicated. But if we take into account an observation by Jung, something interesting comes up.
So Jung had this idea–watch for the irony–that we don’t “have” thoughts. That we don’t create them, but that they sort of manifest themselves to us. Peterson then said that “thinking,” then is our active process of negotiating with those self-propagating thoughts, thus turning them into useful concepts.
Okay, so taking those two things into consideration, we have to acknowledge something else. That we think in language. We think in words. So if there is a conversation we are having between the voice in our heads and these manifested thoughts, there is a conveyance of an idea within our own heads before we even try to explain it to anyone else. And before that, even, the thought has to manifest itself in some familiar language. Generally, I believe, this is first through the language of emotion and then rapidly into the language in which we think–words.
So how are these thoughts manifesting themselves? Where is the source? Some communication has to take place in order for an idea to become coherent enough to occur in any practical sense, or it’s just chaotic data. So I’m trying to puzzle that part out at the moment, because we seem to be the processors of external information. Perhaps it is the case that thoughts are sourced at Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious, and that we process them at the individual level in order to maximize thought power, creating a sort of “conceptual natural world,” where our purpose is literally to be reality attempting to understand itself as efficiently as possible.
So that’s pretty wild. Just a fun thought exercise.
this is definitely a very real motivational poster with a not-at-all-made-up quote
Piers is called Peterson in french, nezu in japanese, piers in english…

tell me about it dm
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one!’” —C.S. Lewis
“Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.” —Thomas Jefferson
“Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” —Aristotle
“Friendship is not a way of accomplishing something but a way of being with another in which we become more authentically ourselves.” —Eugene Peterson
“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.” —Emerson
“If the first law of friendship is that it has to be cultivated, the second law is to be indulgent when the first has been neglected.” —Voltaire
“Friendship is agreement with kindliness and affection about things human and divine.” —Cicero
“The light of friendship is seen plainest when all around is dark.” —Grace Noll Crowell
“For spiritual friendship, which is what we mean by true friendship, should be desired not with a view to any worldly good, nor for any reason extrinsic to itself, but from the worthiness of its own nature, and the feeling of the human heart, so that it offers no advantage or reward other than itself. … For in this true friendship one makes progress by bettering oneself, and one bears fruit by experiencing the enjoyment of this increasing degree of perfection. And so spiritual friendship is born among good people through the similarity of their characters, goals, and habits in life.” —Aelred of Rievaulx
“The quickest way to initiate friendship is to give people freedom to be themselves.” —Andy Braner
Saw this adaptation by Joe Landry at the theatre today and it was great! I don’t get to go to the theatre very often, but I love watching performances so today was awesome.
The reason I’m posting this on my MM blog is because I was flipping through the pamphlet and discovered one of the performers, Kevin Hare, actually made an appearance on the show in Season 11, Episode 9: “The Talking Dead”. Pretty cool!
Anyway, if anyone happens to be in Thunder Bay, ON between now and Dec. 21st, I’d recommend going to see it at the Magnus Theatre. I loved it!

I feel like Jordan Peterson goes way too hard in his inspiration videos. like calm down. we got it. we’re not all lost and lazy. I feel like his message and delivery makes our lives seem like 911 emergency.
This is why i like crazy people on youtube who dance with daisies and talk about love and peace. That message changes my life instantly. Maybe Peterson is meant for men only. idk.??? like maybe that is his target audience because he doesn’t speak to me.
