Tom's Spiritual Beliefs
I am an event rippling through existence, interacting to one degree or another with all the
other things that together, make up that existence.
I was neither destined nor designed, but I am the product of the same natural forces that create
I had a beginning, and I will have an end, but the stuff that I am made of can be neither created
And that's cool.
I am completely out of my mind.
Here are some thoughts I'd like more people to dwell on:
Life According To Tom
If you treat certain people favorably because of your associations,
what are you doing to everybody else?
People who don't understand what's going on
should get out of the way.
It is human nature to succeed at the expense of others, and it is also human nature to deny
that's what's happening.
You might as well enjoy everything that you can manage in life,
because there are no points for suffering - in fact no points
Most decisions are easier if you pretend someone else is making them and you start by
eliminating the intolerable.
Thoughtful treatment of quality ingredients can almost guarantee a satisfying outcome.
People either create turbulence, absorb it, or ride on top of it.
Deception is a way of arming your adversaries.
Discard stale thoughts to make room for fresh ones (i.e. eat more Mentos).
Never pick up a penny you find on the floor - just kick it under something.
You probably have more of almost everything than you really need.
Plants have been celebrating ever since the day that animals stopped eating them and
started eating each other instead.
You can't predict the weather, yet somehow you can still trust it.
The opposite is true for people.
The game "musical chairs" is basic training for a "shaft your way to success" culture.
Conscientious people are terrible at musical chairs.
