Some Thoughts about life.

the slow burn is always more entertaining than the quick kill. Apply this to life. What this means for people who don't quite get it is that don't just fuck off in your 20's, set yourself up for a long and happy life doing what pleases you most. This doesn't necessarily mean getting a high paying job as life is not about money but more about happiness, what it means is set yourself up in a career path and an environment were you'll have a better time in your older years.

A fact of life.

You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about it's width and it's depth

Trippy Video

Journey Beyond with this trippy video by Larry Carlson

Past, Present, Future

The future does not yet exist, therefore it does not exist.

The past no longer exists, therefore it does not exist.

The present is an infinitely small instant that is ever-changing, passing from moment to moment, therefore it does not exist in any manner which can be statically defined and described.

So the passage of time is meaningless, and only our perception of the immediate instant is useful, but as soon as we perceive it, it is gone.

Something to Think About...

     I like to think of myself as an observer.

I was indoctrinated to time travel at a very young age, thanks to video games like Day of the Tentacle, and movies such as Back to the Future, and have thus grown up knowing the fact that our way of life is not the way it has always been- nor is it how it will always be. People who haven't are unknowingly trapped in this time in history, thinking it is the epitome of humanity. But, how are we different than people 100 or 200 or 500 or 1000 years ago, thinking "This is the pinnacle of civilizaiton, life as we know it will be like this forever" only to see many inventions, discoveries, and tragedies and losses take place in their lifetime? Imagine 100, 200, 500, or 1000 years from now when people look back and wonder how in the world we could take our tanning beds, plastic surgery, excessive and compulsive consumerism, and even our rivaling political parties seriously.

Because of this, I can't look at our own generation without seeing it through the eyes of the future of humanity. So, I cannot connect with the norms of our cultures today: The obsession with sports, parties, and the rampant sexuality (Got to bang every chick around), or especially the need to work a steady job so you can find a woman who will have your children, just so you can teach them that they need to work a steady job so that they can find a woman who will have their children... etc.

The worst part is, I cannot find a woman who shares these views.

It's sad that I will probably die alone with this knowledge, because no one wants to think they aren't doing things right, or at least doing things the way we are "supposed" to. This time in history is not the be all end all of life; it will change. Dramatically. In ways you can't think of. We are not doing things the way we are "supposed" to- there is no exact one thing that Humans were meant to do with their life;

The only constant is that we are all human.
