It's only gloomy if you let it be. The best way to lose in life is not to try. If you're always in repose, everything is tyranny. If you' re up and
doing things yourself then you experience some freedom.
SOME freedom, not endless freedom. It's just the nature of our reality. As far as I understand science, we live in a semi-deterministic reality. It
has some determinism and some chance. The chance stems from the inability to predict quantum-ness. This means that no matter how much we know about
our universe we will still make mistakes on occasion because of the unforeseen.
I think you're right that many things are repeated. They say that right now in the world there's somebody else out there just like yourself. I
remember back in school I saw a guy that looked a lot like me and acted like me and even had the same sort of notebook(s). Our DNA is virtually
identical. Our environment is very similar too. From a certain perspective, we live forever through each other and through our descendants. The
difference between any single person on the planet is about the difference you'd experience in X time. I mean, if we did live forever then we'd change
dramatically every X years, right? We'd change by X amount. If I'm X amount different from another person on the planet and it's equivalent to the
difference I'd experience in X years of living then I can say that I live long (perhaps forever) through others (maybe through other creatures
And you know I WANT to believe in an after-life. I WANT to believe in a divine nature or a other-side that will button up all the holes and fill all
the voids and heal all the wounds. This world is filled with sorrow and pain and murder and suffering and all that grimy stuff. I am not a realist
because I like these things, I am because I don't want to foolishly put my hopes on supernatural miracles to save us from disaster. We need to be
self-reliant so we can handle sh** when it happens.
