Stalin is an ultimate example of desire for everybody's approval.
When this goal is achieved, he found out there there's no
real friends left and nobody to trust.

In a dream, when a confrontation occurs, my weakness may
look so convincing, as if it's actually based on a physical
law - but it isn't!
*
Mockery is a defence against supernatural.
And damned good defence at that.
*
Example how the meanings of Pain & Pleasure are mixed up in
society: those who kill for money (soldiers) are considered
heroes and those who give pleasure for money (prostitutes)
are outcasts.

When a task is beginning to get boring, does it make sense
to drop it right away? So I don't get the "this occupation
is boring" imprinted in my memory?
*
Some Douglas Adams quotes:
"Wail, wail, screech, wail, howl, honk, squeak went the  bagpipes,
increasing	the  Captain's  already  considerable pleasure at the
thought that any moment now they might stop. That  was	something
he looked forward to as well."

"An SEP, is something that we can't see, or don't see,
or	our  brain	doesn't  let  us  see, because we think that it's
somebody else's problem. That's what SEP means.  Somebody  Else's
Problem.  The brain just edits it out, it's like a blind spot. If
you look at  it  directly  you	won't  see  it  unless  you  know
precisely  what  it is. Your only hope is to catch it by surprise
out of the corner of your eye."

"The Somebody Else's  Problem  field  is  much  simpler  and  more
effective, and what's more can be run for over a hundred years on
a single watch battery. This is because  it  relies  on  people's
natural  disposition  not  to  see	anything  they don't want to,
weren't expecting, or can't explain."

"Just look at yourself!" could actually mean "Look for
solution inside yourself".

I feel shyness when I catch myself enjoying kids music or
classical music.
If nothing else, they both remind me of my childhood. And
the memories are positive.
*
Speaking of metaphusics - twice in a row I forgot to set my
alarm cllock. Yesterday, i woke up myself 10 minutes before
I had to get up. Today, telemarketers called me at exact
same time.

Improving - is high on my list of values.
Automatically entering same stuff day after day is
unbearable for me, I have to simlify and enhance the
process.
*
Conflict - if I don't make a plan, I tend to jump ahead.
If I do have a plan, I may get overwhelmed, because there's
so far till the end.
*
Any chance that mechanical data entry is akin to any other
routine task? That is, may it lead to meditative state and
unorthodox thoughts?
*
Knowledge that the current step is just as interesting as
the next one seems to help against feeling rushed somewhat.
*
It's important to move forward, as opposed to resting on
ones' laurels.
No amount of former achievements will guarantee eternal
satisfaction.
*
There's no such love, that could give desire to do chores
for the rest of my life.
I can do them willingly and creatively as long as there's
support and motivation. Once they are gone, they become like
a leash.
*
I can't control, what things other people may find funny.
Remember a character from "Good Morning Vietnam", who tried
so hard to convince others: "This is not funny!".
