Alchemy Lesson No.13: Distillation


Irritation comes about when the world does not conform to expectations.
Exasperation and frustration ensue when change is not instituted to the causes of irritation.
Anger sweeps exasperation to one side as it seeks to know the reasons for everything; every dropped object or irrational machine; every minor infringement of common sense.
Rage is the edge of logic that does not find those answers.
Rage is a force which does not confine itself to causes.
Rage is a cause without rebels to support.
When awoken it seeks to rip the annoyance of logic’s limitations from the framework of existence dash it to the floor, and proceed to jump on it with the force of planets colliding.
Rage does not find solace in its actions; does not provide relief from irritation, frustration and anger, it is the loss of controlled anger; it is impossible to control once released from its box.
Rage is the split atom of human behaviour.
Rage is an instrument of catastrophic change.
Every decision made in the crucible of anger gives birth to a demon whose weapon is rage.
Rage is best directed at the inanimate world since when directed inward it is liable to devour the stomach lining; when directed at the animate, the living, it is liable to draw blood.
Rage is best directed against a system of thought – it may yet bring about change.
Irritation is a statement of intent.
Frustration is a complaint.
Anger is a question of moral indignation.
Rage is the answer to a question which cannot be asked.

Rage can be so harmful, but sometimes I think we need to feel it. Like you say here, "Rage is best directed against a system of thought – it may yet bring about change". One must be very careful how it is used or it can turn on you, but it has a power that can get things going.
