27% of the material world is made up of dark matter. The existence of dark matter is accepted by most astronomers today but they have no idea of what this strange stuff actually is. That's why they use the word dark. They could have said mysterious matter, weird matter or unknown matter, but they prefer the word dark. They understand that it must be there when they observe how the galaxies revolve and expansion of the universe but they don't understand what it is.

Ordinary matter and ordinary energy, the stuff that physicists can detect with their powerful high tech instruments, constitute less than 5% of the universe.


The being that you believe is you and your consciousness, is only the tip of an iceberg. The main part of you is hidden. Freud called that part the unconscious.

You do not know who you are. You do not know what life is all about, really. The main part of you is a mystery. The main part of the world is a mystery.

The world we live in, the world we can see and touch, hear and smell, is just a tiny fraction of it all.

When you think that you understand what life is all about and when you think that you are realistic, then you are deluded.

In the latest US presidential election the americans could choose between a neoliberal candidate and a neofascist. 46% of the americans who were entitled to vote didn't bother about it.

Next year it's presidential election in France and the people of France will also get a chance to choose between neoliberalism and neofascism. It's no longer unlikely that Marine Le Pen will become France's next president.

Both social democratic and liberal parties here in Europe have a neoliberal political agenda and the neofascist parties are getting stronger and stronger. The left wing is very small and powerless.

Dark thoughts

The end days are imminent. We are now waiting for the closing scene of this long running, idiotic and gory splatter movie. There is no hope for humankind. All political ideologies and all religions have been disastrous.

Endless wars, exploitation of people and nature, greed, rapacity, bigotry, pollution, superstition - endless bullshit.

Do you still believe that we can change our ways? Do you still believe that we will somehow wake up from our trance states. I don't.

Humanity will die out just like millions and millions of other species in the evolution.

I have now come to the conclusion that life has no ultimate meaning, if you don't invent a meaning for yourself, or adopt someone else's meaning of life.

Life is purposeless. We will all die, sooner or later; we will not end up in heaven or hell and we will not reincarnate. There is no afterlife, I believe. This is it.

I don't mind if you believe that Jesus will save you, or Allah or Krishna, I don't mind if you believe in spirits or angels. I don't mind if you're into quantum physics or how to make more money. I don't care if you're interested in yoga, group sex or golf.

I don't mind if you try to distract yourself with alcohol and drugs, or spend as much time as you can by watching stupid stuff on TV or on the internet. This has also been my way of trying to cope.

I don't mind if you invent a meaning of life. I can understand your reasons for this. But to me has life no particular meaning or purpose.

I'm not depressed. On the contrary. I'm sometimes quite happy. But I just can't see any particular meaning behind the events.

Life here on this planet is filled to the brim with suffering, war, exploitation and idiocy. Nevertheless, sometimes many of us can have some fun.

Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.
