Examples of residence in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Romantic universe The universe is filled with memories and romantic nostalgia of the living and the dead. Eternity breeds the dialects of centuries. From the expansion of the universe of gaps between the internal and external worlds and continents, an abundance of alternative forms of reality is created, where the living learn the limitlessness of the abundance of experiences and where questions as the main engine of evolution leading to bottomless awareness. Expansions create tears in the fabric of the universe giving rise to black holes of ignorance. Leading ultimately to the contraction and finally reunion of everything and everything, a return to the roots of all things and unity in harmony with the whole truth of eternity: love and forgiveness. 2. In the bathyscaphe, sinking to the very bottom of gloomy reality. Sinking deeper and deeper it becomes only worse and worse that death is only at the bottom, the deeper you go, the more you realize that you will not come back. 3. A party of eternally ridiculous times, ridiculous, fun pessimism, this is a noir style reality. Black and white, ridiculous banality of the eternally cruel world, new people are given to eat up life itself. Toy people, on the designed layout, living in children's playhouses, they pass toy balls of desire to each other, gradually restricting themselves, their thinking turns into a children's toy called a logical cube. Selfish thinking of the society in the insulator for the insane, in a soft bright room, in a straitjacket, on which various types and types of thinking and ideologies are written. Their souls in the punishment cell of materialism. It’s all for fun, and just for fun, the confetti airgun is fired from heaven, in the rain they let out under the fanfare of the holiday tongues of beeps, sounds expressing enthusiasm, and an explosion of applause when the world gets worse, and the matrix numbers, and the movement like in a matrix outside of this mock greed. 4. Any madness can be called progress. Meat, blood and bones are mixed with high technology, the spirit of humanity will dissolve in cold metal. The imagination of people is becoming more and more terrible, bodymodification shows our ugly entities turned inside out, good with evil, how difficult is the interweaving of DNA from which people slowly and painfully go crazy, only this indifference of eternity will destroy this complex chain of self-destruction. The ranks of restless souls wandering the earth will replenish. Choose the side of goodness and light, selfless nobleness, true love and sincere friendship and you will thank yourself for all eternity, only conscience will lead you to paradise. 5. The inner world is like a physical toy, the sphere of a hoberman, which is a model of the universe, it expands and narrows. 6. The inner world is like a clam called: nautilus. 7. A smile that is directly connected with space and time, with the fabric of reality itself. Which opens a portal to the dimension of people. See how babies fall into a mega giant smile of reality madness. Teeth, poisonous teeth of sarcasm and irony are everywhere. She even turns the psyche of the strongest into mincemeat. Only those who see the light see this reality. 8. 1. In the depths of human suffering, in the bowels of bitterness, the pearls of truth lurk. 2. Suffering bestows knowledge. 9. The world is a motel of the system of society, a hotel of temporary residence, a hotel in which only unwanted guests of reality live. 10. A life path in which you fully feel the shock humor of fate. Her ever-laughing philosophy, which contains a lethal dose of laughing gas. All this is like a crazy roller coaster combined with a roller coaster. An attraction in which there is a tunnel of ridiculous horrors and dead loops of despair, sometimes you lose consciousness from overwhelming feelings and emotions. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
