Intellectual flying objects


A small part of the forest had been wrong
it thought it was spring instead of autumn.

There are intangible realities which float near us,
formless and without words;
realities which no one has thought out,
and which are excluded for lack of interpreters
(Natalie Clifford Barney – american writer)

Hope, illusion, ambition and feeling is all intangible flying objects in our sphere
if these 4 objects are grounded in our reality, they can be beneficial
if our reality is based on these 4 objects so they can be very dangerous
as another siren or mermaid they can lure us in (too) deep water with their singing.

Life is lived forwards but understood backwards
(Soren Kierkegaard – danish philosopher)


Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose
(Kris Kristofferson – american actor,singer and songwriter)

‘ve never really believed in this sentence, even though it sounds all right
but all the intangible are just ignored.

  1. I was zooming around the quote of N.Clifford Barney myself, quite not able to let it go and use another words for my post. What a lovely surprise to see it on yours, Drake! 🙂
    You are right about those 4 intangib-ilities and how much space, how big role people let them have in their lives. There’ s beauty and there’ s danger, but beautiful danger doesn’ t necessarily end well. 😀

      Yeah and turned around, what about dangerous beauty – doesn’t warrant happy endings – but yes many many intangibles affect our lives and our happiness – so we have to train up our intuition for it must be our joker – I rely a lot on my own intuition and in fact I believe when it goes wrong for me – it’s because I haven’t relied on it… “hehehe” 🙂

      How “strange” that we were on the same lines about this great quote… 🙂

      Thanks really appreciate your words… 🙂 🙂

  2. Very nice and interesting post! I agree mainly with the quote from Kierkegaard.
    Following the sirenes’ singing can be dangerous, but it’s so charming! and sometimes this is the only thing you push on to follow your dreams and ideals. Well, my reality is based on hope and dreams and feelings, if you take off these things from my life is like to kill me at the instant! Looking backwards I understood that all the worst things I did they happened when I based my choices on reality and rationalism, the best I did when I follow my feelings.. 😉 Have a good night full of intangible wonderful dreams.. :-))

      Yeah agree following the sirenes’ singing can be charming but dangerous… 🙂

      The fine art for us is to include the intangible parts in the basic
      and not let all the rationalism take over and overrule… 🙂

      Best wishes from here… 🙂 🙂
