In-depth analysis of desires, will heal from ridiculous desires. 2. A stupid person wants a lot of things, a smart person wants almost nothing, because he knows what he wants, and sees his desires through and through their future consequences. 3. The storm of time, raises the storm of generations. A sandstorm of selfishness, because of which the consequences are not visible. The fog of illusion and the black humor of indifference, the screaming and grinding of the violins of the soul, which fizzle out and fly out into the void, a time where everyone thinks about themselves. All this is replaced by a dramatic silence of insight, which transforms in a different direction, already by a new generation. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
