Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us.

“You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in.”

Eliezer Yudkowsky 

Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.

“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”
 ― Ellen Goodman

“If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.”

The Ouroboros, Greek for ‘tail swallower’  is depicted as a snake in circular motion swallowing it’s tail - on occasion, it can be seen in a lemniscate shape (as seen above).
It originated in Egypt to symbolize the sun; in terms of Gnostic beliefs, it is a referral to the solar god Abraxas, signifying infinity and the soul of the earth.
To those of alchemy it represents the spirit of Mercury (a substance that pervades all matter) and continuous renewal, life and death and the balance of opposition. A double Ouroboros (two snakes swallowing one another) reflects volatility, and spiritually it conveys the harmony of upper and lower natures. It’s common symbolism that the snake represents being reborn, as it sheds it’s skin.
The Ouroboros is consistent throughout various cultures and settings - for example, the serpent Jormungandr of Norse legend encircled and protected the tree of life, or Yggdrasil. The Aztec snake god Queztacoatl was characterized similarly, and Chinese alchemical dragons share relative qualities both physically and in meaning.
