a problem with INFP + INTP relationships is unending intellectual discussions addressed from 2 opposing values. one prefers fact & logic, the other believes even facts are subjective and prefers the personal/altruistic standpoint. it’s weird how just this one thing can result in horrible explosions, heh.
It’s bullshit to think of friendship and romance as being different. They’re not. They’re just variations of the same love. Variations of the same desire to be close.
damnit tumblr, quit spoiling game of thrones for me. i’m not there yet, sheesh.
It is not sad to be human
nor is living entirely within the earth
demeaning or empty: it is the nature of the mind
to defend its eminence, as it is the nature of those
who walk on the surface to fear the depths—one’s
position determines one’s feelings. And yet
to walk on top of a thing is not to prevail over it—
it is more the opposite, a disguised dependency,
by which the slave completes the master. Likewise
the mind disdains what it can’t control,
which will in turn destroy it. It is not painful to return without language or vision: if, like the Buddhists,
one declines to leave
inventories of the self, one emerges in a space
the mind cannot conceive, being wholly physical, not
metaphoric. What is your word? Infinity, meaning
that which cannot be measured.
