back shortly

...in stasis for the very near future, I shall depart with some, perhaps relevant, words of Schopenhauer; an excerpt from his essay 'On the Suffering of the World' (not recommended reading if one's feeling suicidal):

[4]

"Not the least of the torments which plague our existence is the constant pressure of time, which never lets us so much as draw breath but pursues us all like a taskmaster with a whip. It ceases to persecute only him it has delivered over to boredom."

...crikey, he was a cheerful chap.

"Every true, genuine, immediate act of the will is also at once and directly a manifest act of the body; and correspondingly, on the other hand, every impression on the body is also at once and directly an impression on the will. As such, it is called pain when it is contrary to the will, and gratification or pleasure when in accordance with the will."

From his The World as Will and Representation
