DREAM BIGGER THAN THE WORLD YOU SEE AROUND YOU. IT CAN CHANGE.
I was 10 years old.  I saw this in the Radio Shack Catalog.  The PT-210 Portable Data Terminal from Tandy / Radio Shack. I wanted it.
I imagined typing to people from all around the world on it.
it happened.  Better than expected.  You're on it now.

Phone=Internet (Broadband)
Paper=Screen
Keyboard=Keyboard

Dreams can come true.  Mine did.  We have Internet.

This is before BBS's.  Before online services.  Before you could hook your computer to your phone.  This before the IBM PC came out. (6 months before).  This is 1 1/2 years before the Macintosh came out.  [that came out a few days before my birthday.  I really wanted that too!].  This is way before the Internet was open to the public and websites came out.  [10 years after this and I didn't hear about the Internet until 7 years after I saw this... I think it was top-secret or something at the time]

Now you know why I type so much.  I'm still 10 years old, typing on that thing that I never got, but instead, got something way much better: a whole world full of people doing exactly what I dreamed of at 10 years old.

Maybe this is why, even though I've been around a long time, I never lost that spark in my eyes.  The dreamer that dreamed is living his dream and the rest of the world is living his dream too.  My dream.

KENNETH UDUT'S IQ REVEALED [yay?]
Test taking measures how good you are at taking tests.
It involves trying to read the minds of the test-makers to see what they expect you to see.

That being said,
I tested 134 as a kid.
Then I did a thing that converts your SAT score into IQ equivalent; came up as 129 a few months back. Then took a short one online, came up as 132.

So, around 130-ish. But, I hate taking tests. They wanted me in "Talented & Gifted" and sent me to a room, all by myself, with a single teacher in fifth grade to take a "T&G" test.

I was 10 years old.

3/4 of the way through, DREADFULLY BORED, I walked up to the front with my paper in hand where the teacher was.

I asked, "Is this test a requirement?"

He said, "No, it's not required."

I put the paper down in front of him and walked out.

They tried to get me in T&G a few times after that, but I didn't like being singled out into a group. To me, it was like being taken out to where they bring the so-called "slower learning" kids were. I KNEW I was special, but for the limited amount of socializing I did... I didn't want to be separated from the rest of the class.

Also, I liked being the big fish in the small pond. I didn't want to have to compete. I just wanted to get through school.

I feel for his brother and his family that were left behind. He was going to be 20 years old in a few weeks.

Existential angst "What's the point of it all?" "Who am I really?" "What if all I am is only I was before, and there's nothing new to look forward to? What if I am only the roles I play and there are no useful parts for me to play anymore?" is part of the human condition.

Is that why? Do we know? Will we find out? Could have been many things.

Suicide is not always preventable. But temporary states of mental illness is common across every walk of life and one only has to be entirely hopeless for a short time and make a single, bad choice in order to NEVER be able to say, "Whoops! I feel better now! Wow I almost made a huge mistake!".

Look for signs of trouble within yourself.

Look for signs of trouble within family and friends.

Listen.

Sometimes we assume, "Oh, they'll be fine. They're just perfectionists who are never satisfied." "Oh, they're just whining". And maybe they are. But maybe they're not.

Listen. Be understanding. Listen to yourself. Understand yourself. Other people exist to help you see yourself in ways that you can't see yourself.

It's true that nobody understands the real you. Mindreading seems to be impossible and few of us are really that good at self-expression.

But -

It's ALSO true that you're human. Someone doesn't have to understand everything about you to understand ENOUGH of who you are. Find a sympathetic ear. Get help, professional if needed.

They exist for a reason and if you or someone you know seems to be in that state, remember:

As unique as you are, the parts of you that need help are not unique.
These emotions exist in all humans. Help exists.

Maybe nothing would have helped Sawyer Sweeten.
Maybe something would have helped Sawyer Sweeten.

He's gone now. There's no way we'll ever know for sure.

But perhaps you can help somebody who is still here.

Perhaps it's somebody you know.
Perhaps it's somebody else: yourself.
You don't have to walk this road alone.
That's why other people exist.

Not everybody can help. But somebody can.

They won't see this, but my condolences to the family and friends of Sawyer Sweeten and my best hopes to those who AREN'T where he is but ARE where he was before he made his choice.

Before a choice is made,
It can be changed.

I felt smart tonight when I wrote this, so I share, because I'm proud of myself.  Arrogant?  Only to the jealous.  Everybody's just as awesome as me.  I write words.  It amazes me that any of it makes any sense to somebody.

A self-supporting, closed system is a complete Universe unto itself but its foundations require only itself and need not have a basis in reality. It is disconnected from reality. Any analogy of reality to that self-supporting.closed system will ONLY apply to such things that can be analogized to aspects of that system.

Those things that do not fit within the closed system, do not exist because there is no room for it in that system.

That does not necessarily mean they do not exist, only that they cannot exist within that particular system.

When you are 4 years old, you are a complete person. You know everything you know. When you are 80 years old, you are a complete person. You know everything you know. But you do not know everything at 4 years old that you know at 80 years old, even though you are both complete systems unto yourselves.

The union of map and territory is a tricky one.

I like compliments. They give me little creative projects at night when I'm looking for little creative projects at night.

What if you're still a baby, JUST BORN - dreaming of the life you might have?

A 38 second story.
Happy Birthday to Gary Jules to 1983 Tears for Fears "Mad World" to 1985 A-ha Take On Me, trapped between a dream and reality, never fully in either world but existing simultaneously in both realms.

Series of Vines that tell a story.  #symbolism

The headline almost gave me Not a Number error.

Great videos, by the way!

I like hearing the sound of my keyboard as I type. It makes me feel as if I'm accomplishing something.

Of course in reality, I'm staring at a piece of glass, sitting on a chair, moving my fingers up and down to see pretty little black blobs on the screen appear that seem like they mean something, while watching one of my cats clean itself.

A human experience, expressed well... excellent slice of life, with a pleasant denouement.

I cried for a day when I was 17. Sitting on a swing at a playground late at night at the childhood I was leaving behind and the adulthood looming before me, I went home I wrote a note to my future self, telling him never to forget this feeling, never forget the childhood.

Well, I didn't.

What would I tell my 17 year old self?

I'd tell him exactly what I told myself that day after I wiped away the tears and wrote that letter (which I opened last year at 42, the birthdate I set for it):

"Just roll with it like you always do. Play along and smile - they mean well - and listen of course, but don't let them get in your head like this again."

I roll with it. I play along and smile. I listen. And I don't let them get into my head. I define me.


[I was answering a women in an INFP forum along with other people.  She asked, "Officially 18, I am not ready for adulthood. What would you tell your 18 year old self?"]

A simple change of context makes anything possible.

Wanna raise people from the dead?

Become a speaker for the dead. If you're an expert on someone's life and can write - or better - an actor who can imitate them well enough to portray them... BOOM, you just raised someone from the dead.

Is it exactly the same? No. But our technological abilities to take DNA and grow someone ain't there yet, and anyway, the only place that our thoughts and brain patterns are collected are in the things we create in our lives - the things we write, paint, draw, music we write, the people whose lives we touch and remember us or the people we influence, the machines we make... THOSE things are a form of definite immortality that reflect at least parts of our brainwave patterns.

So, not a bad form of immortality. And if Christianity or another religion turns out to be correct as well? I'm cool with that too. I'm a nice guy whatever way things end up. :P

Anything's possible for you. Once you realize the walls are fake and lines and words are just drawn on paper that you can crumble up and throw away, you can unlearn a lot of the stuff from school and growing up and be free to draw your own lines if you want, build your own walls and tear them down if you choose.

You got a birthdate. You know that one. You have a death date most likely. (you might not). You don't know that one.

What's inbetween?

the -

And you're the - right now. It's an awesome place to be.


Kenneth Udut Apr 24/15. Wrote this for a new friend but seemed good enough to share. Hope it helps someone 'cause it helps me and helped my new friend who was really struggling and didn't even know it.
