CHAOS

It has been said that all we have been taught on Earth are lies and half-truths.  Therefore, in order to learn, we must first “unlearn”.  To discover Who You Really Are, you must first “unlearn” the false ideas of “YOU” into which you have been tricked, coerced or indoctrinated to accept as “truth”.   When “truth” has been stripped away, what remains is “you”.

— Lawrence R. Spencer —

Emil Cioran 8 April 1911 – 20 June 1995) was a Romanian philosopher and essayist, who published works in both Romanian and French. Cioran was born in Resinár (Rășinari), Szeben County, which was part of Austria-Hungary at the time. His work has been noted for its pervasive philosophical pessimism, and frequently engaged with issues of suffering, decay, and nihilism. Among his best known works are On the Heights of Despair (1934) and The Trouble with Being Born (1973). Cioran’s first French book, A Short History of Decay, was awarded the prestigious Rivarol Prize in 1950. The Latin Quarter of Paris was his permanent residence and he lived much of his life in isolation with his partner Simone Boué.  (Wikipedia.org)
