I've never typed a rant before, so I'm going to lay one down and see where it goes. I'm sitting here watching Rude Tube on TV and occasionally
glance on to ATS to see what's going down, and now I'm thinking about me, how lucky I am to be sitting on a sofa, on my smartphone on the internet
having a moan, to the man who is my counterpart, age and aspirations probably cowering awaiting the next missile to strike, or gunman to go on the
loose, or waiting for enlightenment. Then I look at the country I'm in, the UK. We moan because we can, but do not have it as bad as most.
Then I look at Europe, then the world. But hang on, we're past that. We're on Mars.... We're at the outer solar system. I think of the solar
system and its bounties it may hold. Then there's' our galaxy, and the galaxy next door, and the space that the galaxies are contained. What
contains that space? And what contains that space?
Now realising quite how I'm just an insignificant little s#£t. Who are we to believe we are the only ones in this 'space' ? And how the hell do
we know how it all works, truly. We have theories and pockets of information where we try and understand how it works. Yet everyday we're learning
more. But a asteroid can narrowly miss us just given two hours notice of its existence.
At the end of the day we are all the same bags of water, no matter what colour or beliefs or whatever. Wherever we came from, how we came to be, we
are all the same. We put our trusts into the selfish men who only fantasise of being ever more powerful. The same men who can end our existence right
now. But so can the solar system. And so can the galaxy. I'm not justifying my existence, but I am because I am. I'm an insignificant little s#£t
plundering on trying to make a difference in my own little world.
Can I wish my fellow insignificant little s#£ts a very Happy Christmas, and a New Year full of hope and more questions. So we can rise out of being
insignificant, and even if the galaxy, solar system or the selfish men end it all for us. Remember, we are who we are at the end, in our own worlds.
