Into the void

Sometimes i’d yell questions at the rocks and the trees, and across gorges, or yodel – “what is the meaning of the void?” the answer was perfect silence, so i knew.

no man should go through life without once experiencing healthy, even bored solitude in the wilderness, finding himself depending solely on himself and thereby learning his true and hidden strength – learning for instance, to eat when he’s hungry and sleep when he’s sleepy

    I just watched ‘Into the Wild’ two nights ago. I’m not convinced by the whole solitude thing… Starvation and freezing? I’m okay just now, thanks.

    he did say “no man…” – it’s the lack of that extra leg on the chromosome that leads to the genetic predisposition to enjoying filth, dirt and misery. that and fart noises too, it’s all darwinian.
