Most of my thoughts are focused mainly on people's destinies (internal and external), but on the other hand, I am very much looking for and thinking about constant human manners (eating all the time, sleeping all the time, doing all the time, talking all the time, getting up all the time, etc.). In this way, sometimes I want to self-immolate internally and externally. I try to stay away from "Programmed Societies"
