Melancholia and Hollow Human Intimacy!
A human being is incapable of maintaining good relations with his fellow man. Now and then he reminds himself that he is alone in midst of masses. The mind itself is unconquerable thing it makes men do insane things. He ought to confine his thoughts in those rigid hollow walls of his brain from which he always tries to escape. The true noble self of every man is his own image alone in the form of his shadow that follows him every second during the day and night. The shadow is nothing but a reflection of the soul that yearns to get out of the body, once and for all he wants solitude. What is the value of human intimacy? One may ask. It is this that society is too cheap and you meet it every short interval and that it is most of the times full of boredom. The kings from every age felt that too, they were the only kind of privileged individuals who suffered greater amount of loath for their subjects and as a kingdom whole. I bet not only once but many times they must have tried to get rid of their rule as an emperor. I studied napoleon and alexander and what their personalities reflect is quite peculiar that they have this urge of being normal, yet their role made them do abnormal things and always keep them away from the ordinary lifestyle.
The question arises? What is the cause of this psychoanalysis nowadays in many individuals who are struggling through life with little ambitions feel the same urge that is why it is so hard for them to be normal is it due to their rules as well thrown on them by social demands for money and wealth and longing to prove their loved ones that they will make something of their life? What other cause there could be? One thing is sure if we look at natural laws of physics is that nothing is subject to change.
While on the run people change and what changes them are not the circumstances but the fear and vision of what the future holds? This empty rage, the abyss, the dungeon makes them act in a way which is inappropriate, and, on the run, they go in the direction which is not beneficial to them and they became irrational? Why? The world as it appears to them is not satisfactory and their inability to turn it upside down, powerlessness to stop the arrow of time seduce them to commit atrocities. I conclude here for all thinking men that if such individuals you gave them all the money in the world, respect, women and family they will still get bored?
To emphasize look at the story of Aladdin and his magic lamp, the genie and three wishes. Why three wishes? The writer who ever was it who wrote the classic tale of Aladdin was very aware of the human nature indeed. He shows this why? And Ahh? The feeling of full belly that men are impatient towards their goals, they want things immediately even without action. So, he gave three wishes to Aladdin and we know even after the three wishes are fulfilled in which he frees the genie in his last one to make a trade as to own forever and genie in return appears to be loyal and stays with him fulfilling every desire Aladdin may have for instance one may wonder isn’t close to the concept of God? After all why men need God? To ask for help and to make things happen for them same as the genie was god to Aladdin. We pray only in misery and good times, in pain and happiness and in most cases when men are happy, they forget their own gods. For example, look at the tradition of all monotheism religions and the wrath of God on them. In the end what remains is this giant melancholia each of us carry along with every breath we take until death.
