For past few months, I have lost interest in everything. Every damn thing seems so pointless.
When I sit outside to have a smoke I see people walking by. Some have kids, some are young lovers, some are loud... They remind me of chimps and
gorillas in the wild: some have kids, some are young lovers, some are loud...
Though our technology may be advancing, we as individuals are living life exactly as our dumb hairy cousins are. We fight - they fight. We have sex -
they have sex. We use tools - they use tools.
We are NOT special or unique. We pop into existence for a few decades and then pop out, just like every other animal on the planet.
But, this existence doesn't have to be so depressing. The good thing is that we can make mistakes (we can make absolute fools of ourselves) and all
will be forgotten long before our bodies disintegrate. From the evolution of the very first thinking human, and up to 100 years before you were born,
there have been billions of individuals that have lived and died; we know nothing of their personal likes and dislikes, how they laughed, their
favorite foods... For all intents and purposes it's as though they never even existed.
Now, a hundred years from the day you die your name won't even come up in a dinner conversation. It will be like you never even existed. If you're in
the U.S., when is the last time you had a deep conversation about the Boston Strangler? Jeffrey Dahmer? And, even if their names do come up, even if
their names made it into print somewhere, what do they care - they're dead!
But, if these monsters won't stand the test of time, then we ordinary humans are FREE TO DO ANYTHING WE WANT! THIS LIFE IS ALL ABOUT YOU!!!!
Here are some of the things you can do and feel utterly guilt-free:
1. Go to a karaoke bar and sing your heart out - IN THE WRONG KEY!
2. Play video games all day without feeling that you are wasting time. The time is yours to do as you please.
3. Fart in a crowded elevator and blame the guy in the suitcoat and tie.
Point being, if nothing really matters, then do everything without guilt, shame, or any sense of wrongness.
On a personal note: I don't believe in any grand wizard with a magic wand. My veins are clogged from my neck down into my legs. I can't walk more than
a hundred feet without having to rest my legs. So, just like anyone else, I might not have a tomorrow, which makes each moment special to ME! I wrote
this post because I WANTED to, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Now, I'm going to enjoy the hell out of a smoke.
Now it's your turn to enjoy the hell out of reading this. Enjoy it, dammit!
