  • “When someone harms our daughter or sister or wife, our rage and courage practically turn infinite and we do not even imagine of stopping until the perpetrators are brought to justice, yet when mindless barbarians keep raping the very fabric of humanity in the name of race, religion, and nation, we somehow manage to accept it as the norm. What hypocrisy! What a bunch of losers we are! Okay, be a loser – live as a loser – crawl through the several decades of your life as a loser – but don’t you dare to boast about being human. Because if you don’t have the guts and conscience to act against discrimination, segregation, and bigotry, then you don’t deserve the title of human. Losers don’t make humans, just like bigots and barbarians ain’t no human. If we are to look at the mirror and say out loud – yes, that’s me, a human – then we must, not should, but must, be accountable for not just our individual reality, but for our social reality as well.”

We create our own order and chaos, based on our own knacks, desires, beliefs, biases, and knowledge, and then we impose that order and chaos upon the reality that we create.”
  • “Why do you think news of violence and aggression receive huge ratings! It’s because the human mind is conditioned to pay more attention to negative events than positive ones, because even if you ignore a positive event, it’s very unlikely that something bad will happen to you because of your ignorance, but if you are inattentive to a negative event, you may just lose your life.”

  • “AI can be programmed to imitate human behavior only, but it can’t be programmed to feel the emotions that make humans behave the way they do.”

  • “Human you are – yes – but not an ordinary human – you are born to shape the collective thought processes of a species – you are born to take humanity ahead, not backward.”
  • “Alcohol, smoking, God, all these are meant for the common humanity to escape the reality.”
  • “We are messing it up big time, and things will only get worse unless you rise against the ever-strengthening social neurosis.”
  • “If we don’t sacrifice our selfishness at the altar of harmony, we’ll have to sacrifice tranquility of our children at the altar of segregation.”

  • “Better dope than a dilettante.”
  • “Rather than living only in the present, the use of verbal symbols allowed the Homo sapiens to mysteriously transcend the immediate experience given by the physical senses and to live in an abstract, extra-sensory, and hypothetical world.”

  • “It’s time that illusions, shadows, and imaginations are replaced with the irrefutable value of human existence.”

When I am engaged in a conversation with one of my sisters anywhere in the world, my eyes are not subconsciously driven to take a quick peek down her blouse. I belong to all women, all men, everywhere, as a brother. And being a brother calls for the responsibility of thinking, feeling and behaving like a brother, instead of a potential mate-hunter. Here I am by no means insinuating that all men should see all women as sisters, rather I am pointing out that all civilized men should at the very least have the decency to see women as persons, and not as objects of sexual gratification or as potential mating partners, because only then we shall succeed as a conscientious species to give a safe and non-predatory environment to our children.”

Now, we stand at yet another crossroads of oppression – it is the oppression of bigotry and discrimination on the human psyche. Time has come to my sentient soldier, that the self must fight with all its might to be free from the oppression of discrimination, prejudices, and bigotry. And this fight is far too grand to be fought with plain primitive violence and strength of the muscle. It is a battle within the mind which can only be fought and won by the strength and purity of the mind.”
  • “Stagnant water gets polluted over time, and so does stagnant mind, but if the mind is inflow, all pollutants within and without, get washed away with its ever-evolving and rejuvenating torrents, quite like water.”
  • “When the individual consciousness and social consciousness become one, the slightest trace of a human act can trigger a tsunami of change in the world. When the illusory separation between the self and the society is demolished by the ambition-less will of the self, all that there remains is peace, piety, and progress.”

  • “Except for our pompous means of comfort, human condition is not much different from animal condition – we are tormented each day with animal-like anxieties, insecurities, and fears, and each torment makes us believe that perhaps having more comfort will change our condition, but it never does, rather, it only shoves us deeper into the abyss of psychological darkness.”

  • “Individual progress must contribute to the collective progress of a people, otherwise, it’s of no consequence in the vast ocean of space and motion.”

And there is the problem of the so-called modern humans. They all want somebody to tell them, how to achieve something. Here is a fact, calculus can be taught, quantum physics can be taught, molecular biology can be taught, but not freedom of mind. And why do you need a path in the first place? If there is a bottle labeled poison, on the shelf, you don’t just bring it down and drink the poison to know whether it will kill you.

If you try to take away some hungry man’s stale bread, he would fight back, but if you give him something healthier and more substantial than the bread, then he would throw away the bread himself and accept your better food. The same is for God.”

Can you imagine, somebody telling you, a man can have multiple wives, and yet be deemed civilized! Here that somebody is a fundamentalist ape – a theoretical pest from the stone-age, that somehow managed to survive even amidst all the rise of reasoning and intellect.”
  • “Accepting evil is worse than committing evil. You must – I repeat – you must, as a human being, stand up on the side of humanism, against barbarian inhumanism, for it is your action, that shall determine whether your children shall live in a world of peace and harmony or a world of chaos and discriminations.”
  • “What is the point of having a civilization, if we do not practice being civilized!”
