So, what do you personally think of each option in the image, which seem the best for you, which are you living right now if any?
>Ubermensch - not for me, I'm just not alpha by nature and even though I like some of what herr N had to say.
>Religion - nope, can't believe in God, just won't work
>Political - I don't care enough and I'm too jaded for this one, besides all political systems seem too flawed for me to invest my life to promote them
>Hedonism - maybe a subdued form like Epicureanism, this is probably what I'm doing now but failing horribly, no qt3.14, etc.
>Buddhism - too ascetic for my tastes, though I do like meditation and try to incorporate it into my life.
>Absurdism - Nope, too depressive, I don't want to be on the edge of nihilism all my life
>Tao/Zen - this is probably my favorite one if I had to choose one, I try to live like this but fail miserable, I'm just anxious.

mirror, mirror on the wall
who is the wisest of them all?
and if he's present to read my plea,
convey to him deep misery
for I'm a fool whose lost his path
and wisdom, in rhyme, is all I ask
please, wise one, if you could care
to teach and feed me with wisdom spared

I'm trying to remember the name and author of a science fiction short story.From what I remember, a group of adventurers and scientists are in the jungles looking for the origin of life when they come across a primitive clan of blobs. They believe that they are the earliest forms of humans, but it turns out that the current humans (us) are actually aliens and we drove the blobs, the original inhabitants of Earth, to live in obscurity.
Google failed me, so does this sound familiar to anyone?
