Think Different: Things Lead to Their Opposites

Reading the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is evolving into a new religion, my own religion.

This was a man who lived not impeccably nice, but his legacy survives him. This was a man who was anti-corporate but emerged at the peak of the ladder, at the top of Fortune 100.

Indeed, things lead to their opposites. This debunks the new age philosophy that like attracts like, that the law of attraction is, in fact, the attraction of the opposites. "...that great harvests came from arid sources, pleasure from restraint." To find true love, one has to overcome hate. Or indifference. For to love to find love is madness. To love only what is lovely and lovable is hypocrisy.

Here's to Steve Jobs, and the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers...
