reason, will and desire
This is not a "serious" blog-post. Just playing around tonight.
Can't really do any "serious" writing with all the noise outside. Anyway...
According to Plato, the human mind is composed of REASON, WILL, and DESIRE.
This sentence caught me by surprise. Surprise about how simple and logical this is.
Although I do think there are other components to the human mind, like memories and madness, but that's another point.
Anyhow. Since I decided to study jewelry designing, I really can't wait to start, so I've been playing around with the primitive materials we have at home, and this ring is what I came up with. I think I like it - it's quite rough, asymmetrical, but still. I made it, using those parts of the mind labelled by Plato as "will" and "desire."
Yes, I believe that if you have the WILL and the DESIRE to achieve something, I mean if you TRULY desire it, there's nothing that can stop you from achieving it.
