[not important]

Figured I'd do some music-sharing (soon, I should write about Sufjan Stevens, but for now, just randomness). Considering the timing of this post, I should note that this song has no direct connections to my state except for the question asked in the refrain:

Does the body rule the mind
Or does the mind rule the body?


This one has always, for a number of personal reasons, been "a good one" for me.

Anyway.

The Smiths - Still Ill

But... But I'm looking for self-knowledge and self-control here, not butterflies =)

Re: you're not looking for butterflies - they're your compass...
Sorry. With respect to this question and my reasons for it - just doesn't apply :)

Re: 42?
Just one, "Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?"
Also, things I am afraid of are pain and death - not a part of this question as I ask it.

Not in this case. It simply tells to look for a better question.

> neither should rule the other
Fair enough.

> the world "rule" implies strict control and absolute denial
It doesn't have to :)

> If you want harmony
This is not what I want :) There are situations where I make decisions, and I know precisely the reasons behind those. My question is, what produces the reasons themselves? How do they form, what factors are at play? How to control the seemingly uncontrollable? I've done my share of indulging, and the times have changed. I need to know the reasons behind my own actions and I need to change the reasons in cases when it's *right* to do so (just don't ask me what *right* means).

As to the rest of stuff on life, yeah, that's not news to me. The thing is, I haven't said anything specific about my "reasons" in the original posting - nor will I. As a result, you must be thinking of situations different from the ones I'm imagining. No surprise there; next time I ask a broad question, I will actually care enough to come up with specific examples, but for now, I am too tired/lazy to do so. Sorry 'bout that.
