I used to think I wanted to be a theoretician. A philosopher. Then I realized how complicated life really is. No part of it is simple. Nothing follows only one rule. If you want to be honest with yourself and still figure anything out you might have to second guess 'till the end of your life, and even then there's no guarantee you'll understand. Some people can do that, or think they can. Some people enjoy it. Not me. Sometimes I think I do, but then I try to do it and eventually begin to contemplate suicide. I need to learn to think much less and live so much more. That's dangerous, but perhaps not so dangerous as being safe, dying slowly in a corner.
Once enough pain has been inflicted on someone their only satisfaction is to likewise inflict it on others. Once a burdensome piece of knowledge has been shared with them their only relief is to share it with someone else, preferably many. In sharing and inflicting they ensure that they do not suffer alone.
