“Some of us look for the Way in opium and some in God, some of us in whiskey and some in love. It is all the same Way and it leads nowhither.”
― W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

    The stance here taken perceives the feeble foundations of any given relation to existence, but in doing so also leaves us with nothing. Hanging over the abyss, so to speak. But doesn’t the proposition that idealism is always doomed to fail, and yet seems to repeatedly take hold of our lives without us choosing it, open up our self understanding to a bouquet of infinitely particular ways of encountering our historical being through mythology?
