It is curious to observe what different
ideals of happiness people cherish,
and in what singular places they look
for this well-spring of their life.

a few seek it in the exploration of their own minds,
or in search for knowledge.

one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.

in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The universe we observe has precisely

if there is, at bottom, no design,
no purpose, no evil, no good,
nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.
