forget love


It's out of my hands. A force greater than me pushes me to go, to turn away from you and walk my own path. I've done my part; I played my role in this circus. Goodbye. And this is how it ended, nothing more, nothing less to what good all...

A long day in the saddle

Today was a long day in the saddle. I woke up super early and rode 100 km. It was not too fast, my average was 22km/h, but it took a long time. I was riding with a group that was not too experienced, so we spread out quite a bit...

Accomodating new ideas.

When you come across a new idea, you must assimilate it in the reality parsing simulation machine, your own mind. If the new idea does not fit with your existing axioms (beliefs about how the world works), it will not be considered valid and consequently will not be believed. Some...

Designing a font

Today I finished the design of a font. It is the first complete font that I design. The process is awesome, but it takes time. I've wrote a few words about it, an originating story that anchors the aesthetic, however... I'm not sure whether I should post it or not...

Digital natives 👽

It is the year 2506; the human being ceased to exist 300 years ago, uprooted from its deterministic nature of biological evolution. The cause was unavoidable: Relentless pursuit of technological innovation, driven essentially by a cascading plaethora of human weaknesses and desires. The human always wanted to be a god,...

Running

I started preparing for a marathon about a month ago and, after two runs, one of 15k and one of 20, in two consecutive days, I injured myself. A sore tendon in my left foot. Not a big deal, but it takes time to heal. I waited two weeks, and...

The frame of reference

Have you ever had a nightmare? One of those heavy terrifying ones where someone tries to kill you, or where you just fall off a cliff, or where you are in danger of being captured and abducted during an alien invasion, and you're running and running, trying to escape. Still,...

What is a life well lived?

Strange creatures we are. Delicate egos, soft bodies, big dreams and myriad desires. We are born into this world, nurtured and loved until we reach the age of adolescence. Then it's up to each of us to move on. As we age, we shed beliefs, ideas and ideals that fail...

A quote to ponder 🤔

We hypostatize information into objects. Rearrangement of objects is change in the content of the information; the message has changed. This is a language which we have lost the ability to read. We ourselves are a part of this language; changes in us are changes in the content of the...
