The antithesis of suicide is inspiration, rebirth, exaltation. This is the destruction of the old image and the creation of another image of the same person. Any life situation itself reproduces itself in the repetition of the old methods and ways of relating to the world and itself. When a person adapts to something, then he creates an image, a picture of reality, with which he seeks to merge, considering it to be a “harmony”. But when a person moves forward, he enters into the uncertainty of outlines, into a vague picture of reality. If a person retreats because of fear, he betrays himself, i.e. takes a step towards suicide or to the pitiful state of the thing. If it does, it enters an expanded zone of living space. He goes beyond himself and again becomes a true spiritual person.
A creative person is always unequal to himself and continuously returns the clarity and clarity of a previously blurred, chaotic picture of reality, as he creates the world in his own image and likeness. True, not only reality is changing, but also he himself has already changed irreversibly.
That former man in him would not only not recognize the world around him, but also himself. But the magic of the world of man is that in this change he is the same in the manifestation of his creative ability.
This is catharsis.
Catharsis is a gap with the former image of the familiar world. At the same time, internal nervous, moral, and often sexual stress must be relieved. Catharsis is a moment of enjoying harmony of the world itself with him, for experiencing which requires the conquered right of peace of mind from the achieved result. Positive emotions, however, can create a great deal of nervous stress. Breaking the limits of chaos can be – and then the black hole of hopelessness explodes – and you feel like a “supernova” beyond the horizon of any chaos of a hostile environment of an ugly human culture that causes suicidal evil.
The dilemma of creativity is either self-destruction, or you are born again.
But in any case, you break with the past.
Therefore, for a creative person, the experience of anti-catharsis is obligatory. Along with very joyful – something turns out to be very insignificant, unimportant, which is a pity for wasted time and mental strength.
For Leonardo da Vinci, the death of Katharina (his mother) turned out to be a common event, not a tragedy. He just wrote in his diary: “Katharina died.”
Jobs dies, maybe because solving a business problem, some kind of task turned out to be unimportant, vainly. Before his death, he said that a person does not need much, the main thing is human love. Obviously, stubbornly going out into something, and there, you find yourself in the next chamber, and not on the path to freedom. I did something wrong. Not the vector of movement, struggle. How Lenin died at the age of 54, because it seemed that he had conquered power, but what inspired him did not happen, turned out to be non-existent. His whole life goal turned into the opposite, into nothing – it means that his experiences, trials – also depreciated. He was defeated at the peak of victory.
That is – to realize a little a creative idea, you need to make sure that it really harmonizes, resonates with the human life vocation. Otherwise, we obtain the phenomenon of Vladimir Lenin: a brilliant politician realized his creative dream – the conquest of power for the sake of communism – but he was horrified when he saw what actually came out after victory. But socialism, communism is not in nature. Why did he destroy it all, break it? And it was necessary?
A person dies or goes mad because he didn’t need to do anything. When he realizes that after all the efforts, this is not what he or anyone needs. The result is worse than if he had not achieved this goal. Therefore, it is very important to break into your place, but you can make a mistake in the calculation and get in the wrong place. How to break through the head wall into the next chamber.
Ilon Musk, except for money, probably, pursues big goals, not reducible only to their earning. And this, apparently, saves himself from frustration at the moment of victory.
With money there is a limit beyond which there is no pleasure.
Without money, there is no catharsis, but it cannot be reduced to money. Must be a person’s creative ability to self-realization. Money is needed to make a person self-actual. He wrote a book, music, picture. Created an interesting business for the development of mankind, for example. Do playing. It is important to move away from the abyss, and when you depart from the brink of the abyss, the psychology changes. Your outlook, your idea is changing radically.
The unconditional basic income that is introduced in the West radically changes the self-perception of each member of Western society, since the problem of purely physical survival disappears. Needs are being forced somewhere in a higher sphere, where it is important not to earn money for living, but to use them for choosing such a life scenario that would confirm the significance of a given personality in the human world. The passion around awareness of self-worth is much more intense and tragic than when looking for means to feed.
Catharsis is a reward for achieving harmony. But on the way to harmony, a person goes through a stage of uncertainty, down to chaos. But if he overcomes the stage of uncertainty and chaos, then he will receive that harmony and that catharsis, which are the reward for these efforts. For overcoming the fear of uncertainty. Most often, people are not afraid of danger, but of uncertainty, which denotes your past experience. Any stages of uncertainty and complexity always challenge your experience, your significance and your knowledge.
Those who feel confident in their significance are not afraid of chaos and uncertainty. He rather enjoys this element, knowing that he will cope with it. It turns out that some enjoy, while others suffer. And the one who suffers is seeking justice, and who enjoys seeking freedom.
When a person achieves success, his past begins to “float” on him. Because happiness is a feeling of catharsis with a taste of bitterness during a vain morning life. At first this happiness, and then you start to remember and the crisis begins. At this time, we must not fall into a crisis and not commit suicide. This fact of emotional pullback has been described many times and is familiar to every person who lives and acts according to his own plan.
People themselves often overlap the perspective. You want to help them, or open your eyes, but they vehemently interrupt their perspective, because they cannot cross over themselves and fall into the trap of their own delusions and psychological stereotypes. Therefore, these people become doomed. A person who does not step over himself cannot open new perspectives and achieve catharsis, some kind of creative pleasure for himself and for others, even his children. Only by stepping over his own limitations and his own stereotypes, a person can achieve some kind of satisfaction, pleasure, victory, relief, simplification.
People themselves put a limit to their own actions and thoughts – or, on the contrary, expand their horizons, meeting new opportunities that the new historical reality opens up. Wherever the limit of thought and the limit of imagination are laid, expedient actions also cease there. Therefore, your enemy will always beat on your imagination, will mock our thoughts and meanings under the pretext of “being closer to practice, closer to life” (the one that was left behind our capabilities). Only the enemy will do so, because the person is always unequal to himself and creates the image of his life. A man is equal to what he intended and dared to begin to realize. It is like walking, that a person is equal to himself in his inequality with himself.
A creative person is doomed to engage with the still intangible, imperceptible and act with ethereal images before he achieves a tangible result, and even such that he did not expect – objective reality is always paradoxical. He is trying to find forms and ways to foresee the invisible and bring to the mind of another person for whom creative thinking is not yet either a profession or a vocation.
Good luck should be the inclusion of the creative imagination of those whom we consider as close people in spirit and in life.
A non-creative person inevitably pays for the “lightness of being” with a sense of aversion to life, doom of fate, or even suicidal feelings due to the lack of knowledge of vainness, the meaninglessness of one’s own existence. And it is already impossible to help such people from the outside. An unsuccessful attempt to help such people causes depression in the most creative person.
We repeat once again: the person involved in the creative process seeks freedom, not justice, since the ability to work is already the highest justice.
The totalitarian system in the twentieth century arises from the feeling that people on the path of freedom cannot do anything, so they rush to the search for absolute justice, which leads to historically terrible results.
Suicidal direction, when you want to seek justice for people who do not deserve justice for their livelihoods, their work, their thinking.
The geniusly Karl Marx broke his life in search of the meaning of life for those who did not even think to look for him.
On this creative path, a person needs to communicate with himself like people. But how do you know that they are motivated by our common interests?
It exist the problem of sincerity, insight, affection for us, because the sinusoid of moods and states is always there. Even for the richest man. Health, failure in business, can be put in jail. “Do not condemn prisoners from prison and prison.” Marx had his wife, Jenny, a reliable friend in life. She had no reproach to him that life was going on like this. She believed that she and her husband lived well and, in their own way, were happy. From her correspondence it is clear that she perceived herself adequately. She took it. Marx was 4 years younger. She died at 67, and he at 65. They had unity. And simple Russian and Ukrainian women often have either neglect or hatred of a husband or wife at the time of life’s difficulties for men. We mean the weak feeling of solidarity in Ukrainian and Russian families after the long years of the closed society.
