I'd consider myself a realist, alright? But in philosophical terms I'm what's called a pessimist... I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself - we are creatures that should not exist by natural law... We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everbody's nobody... I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction - one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
It's all one ghetto man, giant gutter in outer space
How an atheist who follows through with the materialist thought system to this point can even get out of bed in the morning is beyond me.

Who cares how we got that little bit of enhanced edge of self awareness. We can use it to crush all our enemies.
Right you are Bass. But when we seem to be our own worst enemies, where's that get us?
