Death Is the End Of
To the anonymous person who dropped by here on my eLf ideas blogspot and left a very inspiring comment, thank you!
People like you are whom help me stay on the path I have chosen...especially on moments when some critics couldn't understand the vision I am sharing and when some criticisms also shake me a bit.
But as I always say, I remain the master of my fate. I don't pray, kneel, prostrate, kowtow, or submit myself to anyone.
I will answer your questions one of these days. Don't worry, there are still so many days ahead of us. The world will not end--at least, not in a million years--so to think ahead as far as that is useless, pointless, and laughably foolish.
Yes, the lives of some people are sure to end--that's inevitable--death is the end of every human's life. That should not be surprising.
But, the world itself--it will just continue to revolve around Sun and be a significant part of Solar System for a very, very long time--at least for millions of years more. And if Earth implodes or an astral body bigger than Earth collides with it and leaves the Earth in smithereens (not anymore able to support any form of life), then it should not be a concern. Relative to that span of time, human life is very short. I'd rather spend my time, energy, and knowledge for worrying or focusing on things and issues that interest me more and which lay ahead in my own generation. I think logically; and I confine my logic within a measurable, or at least estimable, frame of time. I don't put my life or fate in the hands of the unknown or unseen. More so, I don't subject myself to blind faith. I am better than that. I'd rather use my senses. I have a clear sense of purpose.
Between instinct and analysis, I choose the latter. After all, so-called instinct is borne out of a long-developed familiarity with certain circumstances. Therefore, instinct is simply a long-practiced habit. There is no such thing as magic.
