Definition: Philosophy

All philosophy comes from that first piece of paper that you pick up, and grab that pen, and assemble an arbitrary list of rules you followed anyway, before you wrote them down.

Now that they're written down, you must justify them to everyone. And you feel somewhat exposed, for having all your strict, rigid, numbered rules on that piece of paper, for all to see.

That, you see, is the true nature of philosophy.
