a Man's Passion.

Suddenly, and with the wise help of Woody Allen, I had found the answer of my awful and melancholic existentialism. First of all, there's an undeniable truth: We all suffer from a void inherent to the existence itself. Yes, that void that makes you feel sad, alone and insecure. That same void that keep you looking for something. The same void that doesn't let you feel fully satisfied. That same void inside us that we're so desperately looking to fill.

But, that lovely void is the only thing that gives life a reason; that gives life a purpose. Ask this to yourself: Would you be getting off out of the bed each morning if you feel so happy and fulfilled and with nothing else to look for? Of course not. We all love to sleep. My point is that the same thing that makes us sad and incomplete is the same thing that makes life worthy and gives a purpose.

I have found myself all my life looking desperately for love. Looking to find someone to love me in an act of validation of what I think I am and what I need from somebody else to validate trough her love. Being so sure that this void on me can be filled with the purest and biggest feeling in the world. Sounds logical and simple. But I was mistaking the emotions. I heard it from Hemingway (sort of) passion is the thing that makes the existence bearable, for one moment you are so lost in it that you're not afraid to die, and comes a moment of equality and respect in where you're not empty anymore. This moment he was (sort of) referring to, was the passion a man shares with a woman. For sure I can swear it's the most passion-able moment in a gentlemen's life; but it is also the less lasting. Passions can be found in many places. Your work,your profession, your hobby, your country, your ideas, your everything you feel exited about and makes you incredibly happy just to do it, there's where you passions are. Remember the last time you did it. The last time you completed a painting, the last time you performed in front of many people; the last time you written something worthy. You can even feel again that immense feeling all over your chest, that feeling that puts a silly smile on your face, that feeling so close to be in love. The only difference is, that with this feeling, you are doing actually something. Something that will last, for you, and for the other people around. And if you passion is big enough, maybe, it will remain for the people when you're gone. So give passion to your lady every night, and give to your passion all your life.

Everything else is secondary.

"Your time is limited. So don't waste yours living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

-Steve Jobs.

Opposites Attracts.

There're no such thing as opposite things. Like good or bad. Life is everything. Life it's a question of balance only. Life is versatile and people is even more. And being millions of persons in the world, chances are that any combination possible of preferences and personalities could convey together in the singlest, weirdest matching ever. So, don't allow yourself in the foolish prejudice of conventionality by hearing what the "common sense" has to say about matches and preferences. Stand out. Be the real you. Follow your feelings and pursue greatness. You are you; not the you other expects you to be. You're unique in a world of commons.

Reason for Fashion

The deeper you get in the fashion industry, the more you notice how huge the passion is on it. It's so big that everyone involved is so focused in their creative objectives that they stop perceiving the world that happens outside them, and how people who doesn't share our fashion enthusiasm, reacts; maybe because it will be wasting time. But even the entire world lives on it, consciously or not, there are a lot of "fashion snobs" that complains, criticize and look wrong so hard this "frivolous" and "superficial" world than only encourages vanity, greed and the cult to the self. We have to recognize that there's indeed some of this, but, for those who live in the fashion industry with conviction and understanding (like me); fashion represents something really great. Greater than a name, a brand or a life. Speaking in the words of a legend, Coco said:

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."

And she was talking of really powerful ideas. Ideas that represent all the ideal potential of a human being, the necessity of constant innovation, the ability of changing our surroundings to pump on them some meaning and reasons to belong, the power of make things go further than just fulfill a function, but fulfill emotional needs so hard to explain like a closet with hundreds of shoes. I'm talking just of some of these ideas that comes to my mind at the moment, but key to stand my posture: (fashion) It's about evolution, survival, improvement. I'm talking of the future we are building like humanity.

There are, fortunately, scientists fighting for improve our technology, artists and philosophers fighting for feeding our souls and designers fighting for a better living. But, How fashion affects daily life?

I'm not gonna answer it with the obvious necessity of get dressed. I'll better point the keyword of the previous examples: Effort. It's what it's all about, the effort of breaking the common, the effort of maximum aesthetic functionality,the effort for perfect shapes, effort for the greatest meaning of quality and, above all, the effort of not being stuck in mediocrity and conformism of "Why to change, if it's ok like it is?". Will the world keep turning if everyone thinks like this? It's enough by saying that if you put to work these points to any field of work in life you will have in return the innovation, excellence and growth. I'm talking about personal growth, about knowing that always can be better and live for it, to ask for it. I'm talking about taking the responsibility that humans have with it's own existence; recognizing how special we are and the potential we have, exploiting it always, like paying for being so privileged, so unique in the universe. So take a few more minutes each morning to think about your qay to be the best you possible, and get dress according to it.

You'll be DEAD

Nanotechnology. An extremely awesome concept that every moment it’s more an tangible reality in our world. While you’re reading this, some groups of prominent scientists and labs are developing the technology that would made it possible; meaning an advanced control of materials, functions and applications fully integrated with the humans, the nature and the life. But you won’t be able to see exactly what nanotechnology can do to improve the world because you will be death. Yes, death. You won’t survive the actual crisis of the world. Is the climatic change is an natural cyclic process? Yep, that’s maybe right. But even if the climatic change doesn’t kill the life on earth fast enough, the lack of sustentability in the way we live our modern life with the expansionist model sure does. We just can’t afford to keep consuming resources at the pace we do; there’s not enough world to cover our commercial demands, our endless desire to have the next best thing in every single aspect of our dairy life. So the next time you hear these fancy technological wonders, won’t be so glad, because you’ll not be there to see it.

Burn, Bad Burn

Quemar es el problema. Einstein dijo: "El mundo nunca evolucionara para superar su actual estado de crisis usando la misma forma de pensar que creo la situación". Entonces como piensan resolver el problema del calentamiento global causado principalmente por las emisiones de CO2 derivadas de la quema de combustibles fósiles, quemando otras cosas? Quemar etanol es quemar comida, ya que proviene principalmente del maíz y la caña de azúcar. Actualmente 600 personas mueren de hambre por hora en el mundo; mientras algunas personas quieren usar los campos para alimentar sus autos. Quemar biodiesel es menos nocivo en general ya que se aprovechan aceites que de otra manera serian desperdicio y contaminarían el ambiente, pero aun así se depende del petróleo para producir el diesel tradicional, ademas que aumenta las cuotas del mantenimiento del motor. Ademas, hablando ya del petróleo, es la principal fuente de riquezas del mundo y casi todos los productos en el mercado necesitan alguno de sus derivados. Entonces porque quieres seguir quemando? las reservas se están agotando y pronto habrá mas guerras (como la de Iraq) por obtener el control de los yacimientos remanentes. Quemar es infantil, primitivo y da una falsa sensación de poder; sentimiento que al parecer no ha cambiado desde hace 3.5 millones de años que empezamos a utilizar el fuego en nuestra vida diaria como civilización. Yo pienso que ya es tiempo de empezar a cambiar la mentalidad a la hora de energizar nuestros autos, cocinas e industrias. Hay que pensar en hidrogeno, en electricidad solar, eólica, marina, geotérmica o cualquiera de la amplia lista de fuentes inagotables disponibles en la naturaleza que tienen un par de cosas en común: 1) emiten cero y 2) queman cero. Así que por favor, dejen de quemar! La humanidad del siglo XXI debe pensar en lasers y plasmas, no en antorchas y fogatas. Quemar es malo. Cigarrillos, Basura, Bosques, Combustibles; lo que sea que quemes (a excepción de calorías) deja un impacto enormemente negativo en tu vida y en el mundo. Entonces, nuevamente, DEJEN DE QUEMAR!!
