Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
As a result of cultural, familial and environmental influences, we are to a large degree - programmed. As I have written previously, ‘I do indeed have a soul but it is comprised of thousands of tiny robots’.
Something I also know - or rather believe, for I cannot know with 100% certainty - is this: we can, with an effort of will, and though choices, life-experience and learning, create new robots; the addition of which, can dramatically change the way we live in the world.
I am proud of my new robots; that small horde I painstakingly designed. They represent my efforts to carve out for myself something semblance of that thing that some could call ‘free will’.
