On Being Neutral

To me, being neutral is not about not choosing anything from the available options. Well, not choosing, if it’s done wisely, can actually be a good choice, but if it’s done without even knowing what’s going on — or trying to educate yourself to know what’s up — you’re actually being apathetic, not neutral.

To me, being neutral is knowing that there are infinite shades of grey between black and white; nothing is utterly wrong or right. Being neutral is knowing the fact that the darker shades of grey are absorbing more  waves than that of the lighter shades without saying that the darker shades “are better because they absorb more light than the lighter shades” because, guess what? The lighter reflects more waves than the darker!

And who says that more is always better?

Neutral people knows that the “better options” depend on the condition —and maybe there will occasionally, if not rarely, exist a condition in which no option is better than the other. One option might be on the darker area and the other on the lighter area, but they never completely reflect or absorb lights.

But is it always good to be neutral? Again, it depends on the condition. If you’re talking about people — a group of people or a person individually — it might be okay, but if you’re talking about morality, well, neutrality doesn’t always equal justice. Sometimes, to be just is not to be neutral, and at another time, being neutral is just.

I hate the feeling of having discovered or learned something new out of nowhere, but having to wait 2 weeks for your Te to catch up and word it.

And sometimes more than 2 weeks …

This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.

#ye that’s why those lucky cat figurines have their paw posed like that #it’s to invite good luck over

(Well, that doesn’t mean you’re perfect though.)

Kasta

  • X: Kenapa sih takut banget sama si Z?
  • Y: Ya gimana, abis kita beda kasta. Dia di atas, gw di bawah. Jauh lagi. Ga pantes.
  • X: Hah? Masih jaman main kasta-kastaan kayak gitu? Emang dari mananya sih kalian beda kasta?
  • Y: (Diem, lama, kayaknya sih ga bisa jawab)
  • X: Hmm? Jadi?
  • Y: Oh, mungkin karena dia terlalu fancy dan punya segalanya, dan gw terlalu aneh dan tidak menyenangkan. Lagipula gw bukan orang yang dia cari ketika gw ga ada maupun ketika dia butuh bantuan.
  • X: ... Mmmmkay (dengan wajah tidak mengiyakan)
  • Jadi, sebetulnya, apakah yang namanya "kasta" masih ada jaman sekarang?
