I have only discovered the blog, and this was a really fantastic intro. So much of it resonated with my own thinking, as I grapple with existential angst. Looking forward to discovering more, and to observing your own process of differentiation and individuation, if you care to keep sharing.

Very inspiring stuff 💫

Thanks for sharing the backstory behind the name! Possibilities...perhaps that is why we place our hope on children, since (at least in our minds) they can become anything and anyone. For the same reason, some people hate making choices because it kills off possibilities: the opposite of what a child (or an egg) represents.

On a side note, some existentialists argue that death is the end of possibilities (e.g., Sartre), but is it really the end given the impact of one's potential legacy? Or is it possibilities on another dimension?
