OC Weekly Review
What is this thing we associate with existence?
Does anyone actually think about it, or realize that they exist?
Is your mortality of concern, do you contemplate your role on this planet,
If you think about the vastness of the universe does that make your
existence superficial, your beliefs, wants, problems insignificant?
Do you realize that all humans are composed of the same ingredients,
that our identity / personality is based on a hierarchical chemical storage
in our brain?
Take out the surface layer of our brain, (the crumpled grey matter)
it's the size of a dinner napkin. Our memory is stored here.
This is all that separates us.
Yet, there are those that think themselves superior. That use the masses
to support them, that treat people as 'others', treat women as a conquest,
push their belief system on others, blindly obey their leaders, that
kill in the name of God and country, that abuse others and themselves,
that vote by television ads, and that thank God for winning an Academy
award, or scoring a touchdown.
I find it odd that if life is so precious then why do we only get to
experience it once for a short time. That we dont get to experience life
as another gender, another race, another social class, another period
I feel ripped off.
The world would be better if we were all grey and without gender, and
This is what I ponder, and the 'end' terrifies me.
its like turning off a light.
