#8 – Rage Spread Thin

1/30/2017
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “Mediate between thought-suppression and cognitive-reappraisal with expression.” You can’t distinguish popularity from lowest-common-denominators. That’s prima facie obvious, common agreement is situated within what’s most commonly agreed upon—and it’s why the Comfort War will only ever be overcome by individuals. Crowd-sourcing anything, be it opinions, governments, economies […] The post #8 – Rage Spread Thin appeared first on Comfort War.

#7 – Addiction

1/22/2017
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “For an addict, it’s not unreasonable to take radical steps toward self-betterment.” Suppose you considered yourself addicted to supernormal stimulus. You’d notice of course, that its presence was pervasive and all around you—almost like you were an alcoholic working at a bar. Except, that in this […] The post #7 – Addiction appeared first on Comfort War.

#6 – Beast & Death

1/10/2017
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “Live outside the pursuit of happiness.” There are two traps, I’d say, that’ll lead you to gorge on supernormal stimuli; overextension and excess. Overextension occurs when you’ve strained yourself past your tolerance, you’re unable to calm or pay attention, and your subconscious takes over—engaging in activities […] The post #6 – Beast & Death appeared first on Comfort War.

#5 – Hardship v.s. Comfort

1/4/2017
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “Consider your origin story.” We all love a good ‘rise from the ashes’ tale. Our superheroes who overcome a great tormented past, the homeless man turned real-estate tycoon, an underdog athlete overcoming great odds; the list is without end. But what of those raised in comfort? Without […] The post #5 – Hardship v.s. Comfort appeared first on Comfort War.

#4 – Moral Obligation

12/22/2016
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “Become as capable as the weapon you wield.” In his 1977 article “The Theory of Affordances”[1] psychologist James J. Gibson describes the world as perceived through a lens of all “action possibilities” latent in the environment. For understanding what this means, I particularly like an example given […] The post #4 – Moral Obligation appeared first on Comfort War.

#3 – Mathematics of Self-Actualization

12/13/2016
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “Clarity can be thought of as the third derivative of a self–actualization function.” Before I get any further into this idea on maths and method, I should address first an obvious flaw; Namely, that thinking humanity a concept abstract enough to qualify for the rigor demanded by […] The post #3 – Mathematics of Self-Actualization appeared first on Comfort War.

#2 – Calibrated Liberty

11/16/2016
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “Find liberty in a solution precisely calibrated to your circumstance; the hardship you elect.” The Comfort War is a path; it’s a discipline for those of a unique condition. Those who find themselves at rock bottom, despite their best efforts. They’ve been consumed by their passion, […] The post #2 – Calibrated Liberty appeared first on Comfort War.

#1 – Subtle Rapture

11/10/2016
More
Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “To nullify discomfort is to nullify your very ability to endure emotion; it is to nullify and erode both ends of life’s spectrum of experience. “ I’d argue that the most intense of emotions are inherently taxing. Not only do stress and frustration require effort to contain, but […] The post #1 – Subtle Rapture appeared first on Comfort War.

#0 – A Problem

10/31/2016

Hi, I’d like to present an idea: “If you, despite you best efforts, despite your frequent willingness to dedicate yourself entirely to self–discipline, are nevertheless stuck, depleted, frustrated and unsuccessful—then there is exactly one, recklessly defiant way in which you should go about it; a Comfort War.” What I’ve just described are unique […] The post #0 – A Problem appeared first on Comfort War.
