What is really frustrating to me is that we are all a product of our times whether or not we admit to it.

Our thoughts and habits seem like instincts that have been provoked by our times;

mostly socially-constructed. It is true that many great thinkers have managed to move past their lifetime but even they knew that they were a product of their particular environments and had they been born a few years later or earlier, their thoughts and analyses would have been totally different.

Anyway, that is just what I find really irritating, that we are eternally naive despite our most sincere attempts to be omniscient.

(Space is also another factor, and sometimes it is a determinant.)

But I don’t have time to finish this thought right now, gotta go to school.

Will be back l8r.
