por  Carl Jung

  Man positively needs general ideas and convictions that will give a meaning to his life and enable him to find a place for himself in the universe.

A sense of a wider meaning to one’s existence is what raises a man beyond mere getting and spending. If he lacks this sense, he is lost and miserable.

"After each night we are emptier: our mysteries and our griefs have leaked away into our dreams. Thus sleep’s labor not only diminishes the power of our thought, but even that of our secrets."
  E.M. Cioran, A Short History of Decay (1949)

   Dissipator

I’ve been thinking of doing a cheaper AR-15 build next although my plan was to start the Beowulf. A Dissipator like the one in the photos is kind of what I’m aiming for; something cheap (in a good way) that I can use and abuse more so than the Shrike. Not every AR has to be decked with the newest accessories and gear; plain and simple can work just as well. (GRH)

"The common man wants nothing of life but health, longevity, amusement, comfort—“happiness.” He who does not despise this should turn his eyes from world history, for it contains nothing of the sort. The best that history has created is great suffering."
  Oswald Spengler.
