CYRENAICISM
CYRENAICISM

Momentary pleasure, preferably the physical kind, is the highest good.

A sensual hedonist Greek school of philosophy, Cyrenaics believe that momentary pleasure is the intrinsic good. Masturbation is a physical momentary pleasure.

ALTRUISM
ALTRUISM

A doctrine that says the actions of an individual should be based solely on its benefits on others. 

Giving your coffee to others in the morning starts off your (and their) day in a positive way

RELATIVISM
RELATIVISM

A philosophical position that all point of views are equally valid, and that all truth is relative to the individual. 

A relativist can't give a definite answer because they see all points. Nobody else can really tell another person an answer they're looking for. Misdirection: its all relative.

WABI SABI
WABI SABI

Finding beauty in things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

EXISTENTIALISM
EXISTENTIALISM

Everything begins with the self. Consciousness precedes any structure or form that dictates the nature of the world and humanity. 

The existence of existence and non-existence during sleep.

NIHILISM
NIHILISM

Nothing has any real meaning.

Nihilism in it itself can't be nihilistic because its an ideology. Baths are one of the very few things a person can do where they're left in complete isolation. It's also the only time we disconnect and lose ourselves, ultimately becoming nothing.

TAOISM
TAOISM

Taoism is a focus on finding balance in life and death.

Yin/Yang is the most documented concept of Taoism. Yin/Yang is two halves that, together, creates a sense of wholeness in which perpetuates the never-ending cycle and connection between life and death. A taoist gardener understands that life creates death, and death creates life. 

UTILITARIANISM
UTILITARIANISM

Maximizing benefits out of an unfortunate situation.

Food for the sick, by the sick, on the sick. 

That's it
That's it

The allegations against Woody Allen supposedly sexually abusing his ex-girlfriend\current mother-in-law, Mia Farrow’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow and how he no longer plans to respond to it. Simply put, he is over it.

Priestess
Priestess

For the article regarding not accepting the ordination of women into priesthood in most of the world, especially the Vatican. 

They even relieve male priests from their duties (directly from the Vatican) who fight for women’s rights to become priests for the soul purpose of ‘tradition’ and it staying as a patriarchal practice.
