Freebase

  1. Cosmos

    In the general sense, a cosmos is an orderly or harmonious system. The word derives from the Greek term κόσμος, literally meaning "order" or "ornament" and metaphorically "world", and is antithetical to the concept of chaos. Today, the word is generally used as a synonym of the Latin loanword "Universe". The word cosmetics originates from the same root. In many Slavic languages such as Russian, Bulgarian, and Serbian, the word Космос also means "outer space". In Mandarin Chinese, cosmos and universe are both translated as 宇宙, which literally translated means space-time.

  4. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Sins are sleepwalking, a person does not understand what he is doing. All sins are unconscious. 2. Reality is morally decaying, from indifference and selfishness. 3. Hope is getting old. 4. 1. By shedding the snake skin of selfishness, you become more sincere. 2. Time manipulates the speed of fear. 3. Time is the cycles of the subconscious, as in the scenario of life everything happens in time. Meticulously directed by the script of the subconscious mind. Where fear is like a shocker that creates a quantum leap in the awareness that you can't behave like that. And this is reflected in the future life. 5. 1. Insensitivity is humility and fearlessness. 2. Natural selection in the amount of wages. Girls laugh when they find out how much you earn, because love for money, no money, no love.

Life is oblivion in which a person plunges into indifference. 9. Loneliness is insensibility, you start living in the present. 1. A person lost in himself in the world in society. Alien in this world and society. He loses contact with the ship of life and is carried away by the current into the depths of reality. Into the depths of the cosmos of thoughts. In a reality in which there is no air of life, but there are worlds in which one could live and learn the meaning of life, in every life in every world the meaning of life is different, a person is what his scenario of life is. Absolute levitation of consciousness. In which awareness floats in the endless emptiness of reality. In the midst of the cold of indifference. 2. Thought is a black hole in space. 1. Curved mirrors of symbolism metamorphoses. (Distortion of reality by imagination). 2. An indelible smile of the psyche, endowed with resentment for life. 3. Tears make the world transparent. 4. Insight anabolics are the basis of motivation. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  5. Nathaniel Branden:

    With such (collectivist) systems, the individual has always been a victim, twisted against him or herself and commanded to be “unselfish” in sacrificial service to some allegedly higher value called God or pharaoh or emperor or king or society or the state or the race or the proletariat - or the cosmos. It is a strange paradox of our history that this doctrine - which tells us to regard ourselves, in effect, as sacrificial animals - has been generally accepted as a doctrine representing benevolence and love for humankind. From the first individual… who was sacrificed on an altar for the good of the tribe, to the heretics and dissenters burned at the stake for the good of the populace or the glory of God, to the millions exterminated in… slave-labor camps for the good of the race or of the proletariat, it is this (collectivist) morality that has served as justification for every dictatorship and every atrocity, past or present.
