Our Perpetual Life ? ? ?


I’m in a mess of clearing and sorting out the mountain of junks piled-up in the past ten years

or so. (Not a clean Zennist’s like situation. ๐Ÿ˜€ —– I’m doing too many things hence people

keep asking my help or advice, since my help is freeย  ๐Ÿ˜€ = there is no time to let them go.ย 

And I’m getting a help from others too = I don’t think I should isolate myself from this world.)

—– Only the trouble was, when I was busy making something for an art event kind, it was

always in a hurry, and soon after, another project might start = therefore, theย  materials used

etc has been just piled-up. What makes situation even worse was, I buy โ€œCould be useful,

one dayโ€ kind of things, or picking up them from the street.

They are in a shallow box etc, though, box on top of box has built mountains. Ideally, I should

have line of shelves in a warehouse with multi-indexed stock management system though, it’s

a far fetched dream for a humble poor man.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

No doubt, in a clean-up process, something unexpected item coming-out between

a pile which I’ve been looking for, or completely forgotten.ย  A ha, it’s here.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚


What annoying trouble I found was, after years, a cleaning blush kind of cheap

plastic product and particularly the Tesco bags has been disintegrating.

I don’t think the manufacturer expected the people would use their products more than a

year, hence they used cheap material to make-up the item. —– So, I shouldn’t be surprised.

And the Tesco is Proudly announcing that in consideration for the environmental issue,

their bag is biodegradable.

It’s mean, me to left those things under the pile was solely my fault. —– still, I feel annoying

was = may be I still expecting the same must be there intact = my Ego and the greed.

The real trouble is, once I touch them, those disintegrating materials in deed

disintegrates and the small flakes scatter all over, literally spreading a mess.

It’s not funny.


Even though we know nothing is permanent, still the system has to work in an

assumption of every components stays the same in a same condition.

In order to keep the same condition, our body is keeping the same body-temperature and the

same constitution such as the same salinity of the blood (well, more or less) and so on.

To keep the body in the same condition, the parts which is naturally worn-out will be

replenished and renewed constantly = And to make it same as the original, DNA template was

used though, to keep copying again and again, mistake would occur.

It’s the same to a Chinese whisper, once mistaken, the same wrong-pattern will be copied.

Wrong pattern of Gene could create cancerous cell. On the end, our body became no longer able

to keep its function.ย  It’s a system bleak-down. —– This is how we get old and die on the end.


Against this situation, many researches are tackling those problems.

Only a week ago, one Japanese institute announced that they found a chemical which would

prevents the brain cell deteriorates and prevents Alzheimer developed = disease would be

prevented by just an injection.

Another institute succeeded to continuously clone the mouse, over 5 years, 27 generations

so far, and made more than 580 cloned mouse = while preventing the deterioration of

the genes and their futility. ย  Life science is really advancing in amazing speed.


So, we human could gain the perpetual life in foreseeable future while

leaving other life form and biodegradable plastic to disintegrate.ย  —– ? ? ?ย ย ย ย ย 

Is it anything to welcome ?

Because, the matter is not just our internal system. We have to see the implication to the

external system as well.ย ย  Those systems are closely intertwined as a total system called

Dharma in the Buddhist’s term, which has been refined throughout the time, in past billion

of years.ย  We may not able or allowed to tinker one corner without affecting the other part.

Our perpetual life could be detrimental to the planet’s Ecosystem. ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

—– Well, I should talk about this serious subject in the near future.

    I’ll look forward to your future discussion of this serious question. In the meantime, good luck cleaning! ๐Ÿ™‚ One of my strategies for cleaning is: if I don’t know what it’s in it, out it goes! (I never even open it up. I obviously don’t miss it, if I don’t know what’s in it.) ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve never once had a regret about it either.

    Thank you very much for your advice Lemony.
    Unfortunately, my pleasure since I was small is, when I found
    something strange, try to figure-out what it is and find a way
    to make use of it, etc.
    In this way I learned about insects, plants even about electronics
    in my approach. And how I found the new understanding of the ZEN.
    This curiosity open to anything made who yoshizen today.
    I couldn’t chuck it out because I don’t know ๐Ÿ™‚
    Me to live in a chaos, in a mess might be my fate and my choice ๐Ÿ˜€
    (This matter deserve to be discussed in one post soon)

      I completely understand and respect your choice. ๐Ÿ™‚ For me, it’s about not being weighed down by clutter and objects preventing me from moving on to new discoveries. I obviously already found what was in the boxes and drawers in the past; I’m detached from them and want to have open space and an open mind for what newly presents itself in my path. ๐Ÿ™‚

        It seems it is related to the matter of conflict or confusion between Detachment and Mindfulness.
        We don’t need to cling the past. When we encounter [object (or a person) ] we face it
        with Mindfulness without any prejudgment, but not to be excited (certain objectivity = Detachment)
        still nothing else other than what we are facing is there = hence, this is the Mindfulness.
        When the box was closed, what on front of us is just a closed box, not the content, since seeing
        the content was a moment ago = past.
        When I was dealing with a project, all of my mind was with it. But when I finished it and started next
        project. No mind left to the previous project.
        Hence, the junk related to the past gone under without taking notice = causing pile-up ๐Ÿ™‚

        —– I don’t care whether those activities are anything good for my path way. I just doing it
        at least in my best (still quite often for somebody else’s sake) —– in the same context,
        if I bumped to the death, with a sake of fate, may be I’ll just do a business to deal with death.
        I don’t know whether this could anything near to Nirvana, as I may not have any other mind
        hence I wouldn’t have any regret.

    Oh, don’t be afraid. To trip over or tumbling is a part of
    the fun —– in anyway those posts are harmless ๐Ÿ˜€
