Presuming that the average male ejaculate contains 40,000,000 sperm it is most unlikely statistically that any of us should be viewing this thread. Most of us should be down the toilet pan or failed attempts at egg penetration.
So when we are feeling a bit under the weather it is worth considering how privileged we are to actually exist/have a conscience and how we are billions of one against the odds of existing.

Well, that's an interesting thought. I believe that the mind is, or can be separate from the body, or in this case, the sperm. So I guess it wouldn't matter which sperm makes it. The same mind would presumably go with whatever sperm fertilizes the egg. I haven't really thought about it to that extent though. I guess now I have to consider at what point a sperm is connected with a mind.

I guess when you consider it that way a successful pregnancy would seem against the odds. However, try explaining that to all the teen moms, and people dealing with unwanted pregnancies.

what about the odds of living in the industrialized world. I don't know if you guys are in the Western world or not. I am white middle class male in the USA in the 21st century. That is hitting the sperm lottery as well.

Like a football game, where the sperm are the players and the mind is the ball - they don't care who get's there first, just aslong as someone gets it to the end zone? Like that?

Bill Hicks on the subject:


Do you know what that means? I've wiped nations off've my chest with a grey gymsock. Entire civilizations have flaked and crusted in the hair around my navel....


You are not special just the result of a collective effort.....

speak for yourself, i kinda hate living, trapped in this body...have to think, have to work, have to survive, your body will fail you if something else doesn't kill you. and then you've gotta live with other people. i cant stand other people sometimes. the fact that i didnt have a choice to live is a little disturbing.

what the hell am i talking about
