I've wondered the same thing many times, sir. I think it's someone that everyone, at some time, has to ponder. S&F
For me, I fell off a bike, got up and got back on. Made friends, made enemies; fell in love, got married; fell out of love and divorced; buried my
mom; watched my kids grow; played poker and lost; played blackjack and won.
And thousands of other things that make up my life, small, seemingly inconsequential.
Individual experiences, and a domino theory. That one life touches some way on another, and another, through birth, friends, inspiration, to make up a
larger whole than imaginable.
Extremely Sagacious post, and very contributal. Very.
Although, I gather from you, you make it seem like your post is humble, and small minded, while maybe you know, but not conciously know the insight
the post holds within!
It was a sheer pleasure to read, honestly.
I think 'Butterfly Effect" is more rightful then domino, but nonetheless the same.
I too, have buried a parent, will soon be burying another parent, (well 2 in all, which is both
I have won and lost, at many things.
But it is the legacy, the impression that we leave on others, which shape ourselves, but more ultimately others.
Which may be a step up from evolution, as a human intelligent evolution, which brings about no pro-activities.
That our immortalities, lay within others lives, and so on and so on.
It seems, despairing, that our lives shall be footprints, that when undoubtedly the existence of life comes to an end, that our footprints will be
nothing, because there is no longer a place to lay a foot.
Hopefully, something I do, at my young age, brought about in talk by BTS members, will eventually butterfly effect a larger imprint of my foot into
future generations, or eternity. Hopefully.
If we do not overcome earth and hold other planets hospitable, life is worthless.
