Tatiana Plakhova: Chaotic Structures

on Behance

Tatiana Plakhova is an illustrator, designer and art director living and working in Russia. She graduated from Moscow State University with a Master in Social Psychology, and then went on to study graphic design in High Academic School of Graphic Design. Her works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. This mathematical style helps her to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and pensive worlds. She creates both chaos and harmony. “Chaos has its own structure, and each structure contains chaos. I am attracted by both characteristics. They are both inseparable and the basic laws of the world we live in. We can’t enjoy the beauty of waves, stars and leaves without the chaotic, unpredictable, disordered part of live,” says she.

well at the end of the movie it really was just hazel

you didnt

they did. reblogging for that comment. 

John Green purposely made a bunch of subtle hints events throughout the book, like on the plane when Hazel’s movie kept starting slightly after Augustus’. His story starts first so it must end first.

One time in high school, Ishrat told me that Kennet was shit talking and mad dogging her. Apparently it was because Kennet couldn’t see why I was head over heels for Ish and it made her really jealous and frustrated. I thought it was kind of funny and kind of threatening that my ex knew who my love interest was at the time.

This admittedly silly memory just made its way back into my conscious thoughts and it just made me think how much simpler things were a mere two years ago.

Man, the ebb and flow of time and change really hits hard.

Quote
"One heart is not connected to another through harmony alone. They are, instead, linked deeply through their wounds. Pain linked to pain, fragility to fragility. There is no silence without a cry of grief, no forgiveness without bloodshed, no acceptance without a passage through acute loss. That is what lies at the root of true harmony."

Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole. 

Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.
The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.
But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.

"BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?" screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. "You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!""But where will people get the incentive to work?!" Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. "You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!”
"But who will serve me?" grumbled Marty McMoneybags. "Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??”

I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!

The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)
And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!
Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.
And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.
Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.
And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.
The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?
TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.

reblogging for more top commentary

They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. 
But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.
Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.

I’m all for extra income to all adults. If there’s money to be had, there’s money to be spent. If there’s money to be spent, then an economy will thrive. However, as promising as many of these arguments have made this idea out to be, there’s still a ton of variables to consider.
America is a business with lobbying and capitalism running in its veins. It doesn’t matter if you’re getting 33k a year if corporations and government fuck you over by adjusting the price of products and services anyways. There needs to be some sort of non-corruptible micro balance to combat inflation.
If this were to happen, I don’t think 33k would be the appropriate amount of money. I’m thinking somewhere between 10k-20k. 33k is around the ever diminishing middle class standards and more likely than not, this will also cause severe inflation.
Money will have to be dispersed over time, allowing the economy to adjust accordingly. If every single adult in America suddenly had all this extra money in their pockets, the value of the US dollar would depreciate into the depths of hell.
Some of these problems wouldn’t be problems if it wasn’t America but you know…it’s America lol
