With wind force 8 gale winds screaming outside, I sipped idly at my non specific brand cola, and realised midway through that I was forcing myself through the process of imbibing it.
An hour ago, I had just woken up, and was groggy.
So I fixed myself a nice black coffee with green tea-hot-beverage for myself to bring me back from the land of dreams to the land of waking.
About 20 min later, the caffiene+theanine combo slowly worked through my body and released the necessary chemicals and hormones in my body to keep me in a calm-but-alert-awake-state.
The cola, unlike my earlier hot beverage had no purpose, nor was it pleasurable.
I just drained the can instead of throwing it away because of the “sunk cost fallacy” that my brain perceived in the half empty can of cola.
Thus, for finishing my cola, my brain had constructed a false purpose, and fooled itself.
This is to record that I am aware of my actions, and by recording this awareness, hope to perpetuate/integrate it into my future actions.

p.s-The only relevant philosophy is the self-generated philosophy, so I will purposely not elaborate the title of this post any further.
The word ‘philosophy’ is used in its loosest etymological sense.
Any factual error in this post is entirely mine, and any error in comprehension, and the conclusions drawn from such comprehension is entirely the reader’s.
