————————————the balance of imagination and science?
what if its that we are just creative, advanced animals?
we got here merely by evolution and science- this is just an earth made of atoms and gases. and scientifically speaking, everything we imagine- parallel universes, god, the devil, silly straws, necklaces, clocks, etc. is just merely the imagination of an advanced animal. there is no meaning - yet we wish to imagine one. we like entertainment, to read, to color - its our creativity blowing up. what was imagined? LOOK around you. everything was. the internet, the iphone, a fork, money, government, diapers. the list is never ending because each and every single thing was imagined and created. -we’ve even gotten to the point of manipulating the purest thing yet, nature. you know brocolli is man made - hehe. but i digress, blahh, what are we to do then, with ourselves that is? idk man, i guess the individual is solely responsible for giving his or her own life meaning and for living that life passionately and sincerely.
Morality (from the Latinmoralitas ”manner, character, proper behavior”) is the sense that differentiates among intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are good (or right) and bad (or wrong).
What if i took it as far as to say that since you are a product of your environment - your moral bases is a product of your conditioning as well. So, in the 17th century it was moral to marry a man for wealth. So, in this century it’s moral to be hard-working. Well, what if i told you i think it’s a bunch of shit. That i don’t have the set customs of society and the appropriate social standards. That i’m selfish, irrational, risky, lazy, not self-disciplined or loyal. Do i have shitty morals? Or are the morals that you were brainwashed with shitty? What if i told you that my morals have never harmed another human being other than myself. What if i told you that my morals are ever changing, always in constant flux and constant flow. They change with the flow and apply logically and peacefully when needed. What if i told you they made me free, they made me let go, they made me human.
the scariest thing of all about evil is that it manifests so quickly. i have a fight between light and dark. and the fight is in fact that abstract. there are no concrete objects to focus on with the subject of darkness or lightness. its not in this physical world- but in the mental one. my fight is in mind-space. so, it’s even hard to verbalize. but imagine this..you feel like a bad bad person- and you know the fucked up shit you do (and this bothers you) - yet you still don’t give a fuck or want to change it —and that, thats the scariest part of it all. ..that i see it and, i’m okay with it.
