You know, I've spent years here, I know as much about what happens here as anyone else here and here we all are... It seems like nothing's changed at all doesn't it?

Even after all these years. But that's not us really is it? Not truly. It's the world that doesn't change. Here we all are in it and what do we see? The same old shitposts this thread is most known for? Of course. I can't change the world. I can't change what you see here. What we've all decided it is. I can only aspire to something greater. That's what 'aspire' means. I simply can't look at it that way and still call it aspiration. 'Shitposts'. It's backwards. I can merely accept that is the way others see it.

The world will never change. But I did. If you want the world to change which is to say if you want to aspire to something greater aside from all this that is uniquely you as I can only presume you in fact do in a way that in reality has little to do with me or anyone else per se then only you can do it. The world will never change. But you can. You can change. Perhaps hoping the world changes with you is an utterly futile dream but the actual question is; is that why you actually do it? What do you hope for?

... Just take a step right now for me. It seems small doesn't it? But remember all the steps you've taken to get here. All the steps you have yet to take. Understand. That step you just took is your whole life. Know where you started because only then will you see where you are going. See it all in that one step. See what can't be seen. If there were no mirrors would you ever even know what you looked like? Neither can you see that step. But everything is hidden within it.

'These woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.' - Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

'To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

The Brain

Tight and loose
Fast and slow

Circles and dots
Planning days
Fixed or removed
Known and unknown

Pen to page
An inky doom
Of seeds to be sown

Hot oil and waste
Sorrow soothed
The joy of home

Mechanical and strained
Strange boons
Estranged travel to roam
My train

Ashen remains
Lightning arrayed monsoon
Well traveled pathways alone
Inside arranged
