philosophical blah ....

you know the problem with accepting the axiom that "everything in the universe is just blah" ??

you are no longer able to figure out what you want. which direction to take, what to seek. since, you know that eventually, everything will turn out to be blah. what might appear appealing now will not remain so after a while, irrespective of whether you suceed in obtaining it or not.

it is not pleasant if you are able to logically dissect and explain away all your emotions and desires. makes you more distraught.

perhaps i should create a new label called 'blah' ?

This philosophy somehow indicates that you are no longer interested in your research topic.

I know the blah feeling! It will sap the original you out of you. May be Devansh can step in and explain! :P

On an another day, for all I know, you might have written it as a poem (or atleast called it one!) :-)

that is why you should not let a blah blog dominate your life... :D see now you have lost your research drive, by the way remind me again - why is it that you are doing a PhD? :P

@shrikant, err .. ur blog/profile is unnaccessible .. wat happened to it?

@asr, nice try :P .. but my so called 'poems' atleast make an attempt to rhyme :P

@kunal, this post has nothing to do with my phd .. its abt what to do after the phd! and err .. you cant know why do a phd until u finish it :P

@anks, devansh! I can rarely/barely understand his philosophical posts ;)

@vivek, stop bla(h)ming me from the world's ills :P

@karan, :P

If everything were blah, there naturally wouldn't be a requirement for another label 'blah'.

Logically dissecting and 'explaining' away all of one's emotions and desires - One may offer 'explanations' for anything - the only question is as to how relevant, appropriate and meaningful is the explanation to the matter at hand.

I must express, in the strongest possible terms, my profound opposition, to the application of what I see as a completely false and misleading adjective to the noun which forms the basis of this post and your pornderings (pun intended) over your temporary spatial existence.

In short: I take offense at the "philosophical". The post should just be titled blah

skp said...

blah off !

Vandana said...

looks like this blah theory is evolving with your thesis and you...
Possible future direction: work on "degree of blahness" :P

mythalez said...

@pranav aka sage, though everything might be blah, the labels will help in differentiating what kind of blah am talking about, travels & blah, work & blah or just generic blah like this one :P and yeah u raise more questions than provide any answers :P

@obelix, am pleased at having offended it you ... [saying to self] way to go mythalez !!

@skp, u blah off .. no no .. blog off :P

@vandana, ahem ... PhB ? :P
