oh.. self-preservation.. ..going back inside>… fuck.

oh dear. im getting deep into unknown territories https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conatus “effort; endeavor; impulse, inclination, tendency; undertaking; striving”) is an innate inclination of a thing to continue to exist and enhance itself.

Today, conatus is rarely used in the technical sense, since modern physics uses concepts such as inertia and conservation of momentum that have superseded it

Systems theory The Spinozistic conception of a conatus was a historical precursor to modern theories of autopoiesis in biological systems. AUTOPOIESIS now _that’s something I can link into – oh crop there be lightning. back inside.


  1. oh.. self-preservation.. ..going back inside>… fuck.”an innate inclination of a thing to continue to exist and enhance itself.”
    I’m going back inside so I can continue to exist.
    I am trying to enhance myself by learning about this subject.

    ok then

    i still blame it on fight-flight anxiety for self-preservation – although not sure about the enhancing / reproduction connection yet… — oh… like teaching.. even if it’s not biological-have-children, it’s the same impulse… .._or ***instinct***_ … ok,

    when people who don’t want to reproduce they DON’T WANT COMPETITION : SELF-PRESERVATION at the expense of reproduction… because reproduction creates competition which is a threat to self-preservation… ok something it starting to click…
