Thought-Provokers or Bad Dreams

Thought-Provokers or Bad Dreams

Have you had your head done in lately?No, well then take a look at some thought-provokers, aka Hamlet’s bad dreams, which defy imagination, lament thought and create imprisonment. Sayings, mottos and provocative “pithies” in poetry and prose, aiding and abetting scrutiny!

This small collection of thought-provokers exists because thought does but happiness doesn’t. If determinism, free belief, possible causes and education get your goat, so will thought and its provokers. If you have worked hard you will have got lucky (or “someone” got it wrong). If we get knowledge through experience, why do we have to get it on our own, and how do we measure experience, and what is experience? If we think a lot we are sure to rise a lot in social status. If we ponder freedom we know that freedom is not free. If we start laughing when we eat, when we sleep, and when we exercise, our DNA jumps joyously up and down, and we outlive the unsmiling. What a load of………..provocation! And that’s why thought-provokers are here – in poetry and prose! Examples :
•There is some dignity in fallibility, none in a human god. (Agreed?!)
•You just have to believe in lies and everything becomes easy, even murder. (What a lie!?)
•Scorn what the past thought and always remember to believe your scorn is better than your elders’.
•To the thoughtless and the selfish relativity is a sweet god.
To blurb-end : “Let’s sing a rowdy song / To devastate the great…” always remembering we are “free” but freedom is not, and the degree to which we think will determine the degree to which we will rise or not rise or fall.
