box life

Recommended Posts

quiXilver

i write this, staring at a box, while sitting in a box.
typing letters onto a keyboard made of small inverted boxes.
that when pressed, store letters in the box of a computer.
the words are made available to other boxes.
your attention may stray upon them,
while staring at your own box of lights.

 

 

 

box life.

 

 

we form in a womb
we are born in a box


we grow up in a box

we live in a box
 often with locks
where we voluntarily lock ourselves in at night...

 

to be safe

 

born in a box.

we go to school in a box.

to learn about life... in a box.
then we go to work in a box.
earning money to pay for a box.
in which to voluntarily lock ourselves in, to sleep at night


we wake up in a box.
eating food from a box.

that was stored in a box.

within a room that is a box.

in the home that is a box, with locks.


make babies in a box

go on vacation and travel from box to box, in a box...

perhaps the occasional tube...

 

take pictures with a box.

watch movies on a box.

 

transition to death and get viewed... in a box.


we put lots of stuff in boxes.
made in factories that are boxes.
stored in boxes of rooms stacked in giant warehouse buildings... that are boxes.

deliver the boxes to other boxes, in moving boxes.

store our food in cold boxes.
or boxes hung on the wall.
keep our utensils in boxes.
our tools in boxes.
our clothes in boxes.

 

then we **** in a wet porcelain hole and send that... to a box.
 

my son goes to a box for 6-10 hours a day for 13-20 years and at the end of that, he's expected to go out into the world and be prepared for and excel at life... and is expected to know what box he wants to voluntarily sit in for the next 40 years, so he can earn money in order to 'pay' for another box that he can voluntarily lock himself inside at night to eat, sleep and be 'safe' in...  

 

box life.

This seems like something Sartre would say in terms of life really having no meaning so we create a box which is a symbol that gives it meaning.  Nietzsche would just see this poem as a cycle of worthlessness.

we keep criminals in them

we also keep valuables in them

yet we are constantly recommended to think outside of one

Honestly I think the fact of life being, like you described, a meaningless box has it's positive and negative side. Negatively, it's worthless and you are a speck in the cycle. Positively, life has no meaning so there is no pressure or standards for you to follow. You can define it for yourself.

Hi quiXilver

Maybe I'm a little different in the way I see things, at one time I was engaged in a form of conflict with several gov't agencies and someone overheard a conversation with one of their lawyers who thought he could threaten me and I asked him if he didn't like the way I conducted business with him and he said no. So then I explained that if he didn't like the way I did business that he should change his way of doing thing because when this started I had no idea what to do but he was my mentor and taught me how to conduct business by showing me what he did. After his elongated pause for thought he said have a nice day and hung up.:lol:

There was a person there that had overheard my conversation and having so idea of what I was dealing with was stunned by how I engaged this man and questioned me and I said look they have got me by the balls and they are all sitting around the table with knives in their hands and they can't cut them off because that's all they have to hold on to so they are just keeping them warm for me.:lol:

They're everywhere!

Though the walls of the box make up the shape of the box, it's the empty space inside the box that is useful to store things in...  same with my coffee cup.  The form works with the emptiness to hold and transfer my coffee to my self.

It's the same way with houses... we form wood into walls, but cut an empty space for a door, to enter and exit, and it's the empty space inside that we do all our living in.  Form provides function, but the space that is not the form, is where the usefulness arises.

Verse 11 of the Dao De Jing talks about this notion and was one of my first interest peaks to look into Taoism further.

I'm still tumbling, gratefully and rather curiously down that rabbit hole...

Get yourself a pc with a round casing, a rounded house with rounded doors, closets and.. ofcourse.. a round refrigerator.

See how that works out for you. :tu:

Theyre everywhere because the alternative, in a lot of boxes cases, is highly impractical.
