So it is said that the world began with a big bang. A massive, cataclysmic expansion of material that in time created the vast cosmos that we now reside in. It is hard for me to conceive the concept of immortality. Days begin and end , lovers and the lives of those we love come and go. And in time humanity will reach it’s end, just like many other species that evolved only to become extinct. And after we are gone the sun will consume the earth and there will be nothing left of our legacy. So what tangible thing is there that is said to be immortal. Even our universe is accelerating into oblivion. Voids in space that lie between solar systems and stars called dark energy are pushing everything outward and away from each other at an increasing speed, and consuming the cosmos. Eventually these voids will be all that is left, leaving nothing. Einstein himself once conceived this theory but was to appalled by the idea of an in eternal universe to continue his studies. So based on what we know everything will come to an end. I guess that’s where faith comes in. But that’s not something you pick up at k-mart. Should it matter that our lives are just a blink in an ending reality? Is this a good reason to just say fuck it, It’s all going to end anyway. Well I guess that depends on your perspective. As of late mine has been a little blurred by pessimism but I’m hoping for a little spark of optimism to make the days seem more worth wile. If you have a little extra to spare, send it my way, I could use it.

i think everything must at the very least have the illusion of mortality, even if it is immortal. This illusion prevents us from stagnating and becoming passionatly atrophied. We need to fear our demise to find purpose for whats left, its like the corporate boy with the overeager boss cutting his throat on some deadline... in reality, there is no "deadline", but the boss uses this as a tool to get his pet to perform. We too must be encouraged to "perform" in our lives, for if we understood the guise of immortality, we would forever be still and thoughtless
Honey, I got all the optimism you could ever want
There's so much out there to discover,
experience and learn. I can't say I know what
it is that makes us keep going. As beings
that have concience awareness, and a choice
of survival really, I can't say I know except that
it's like reading a good book I dont want
put down. I want to find out what happens in the end, even though I know what happens in the general idea of 'humanity', (we eat, sleep, have sex, work, and die) i want to experience that myself, be the heroine in this book i can't put down, even though I know ultimately I will die. But like everything else, it's hardly about the destination, it's about the journey. And when this story ends, i will be saddened that it had to end so soon. We really are a blink in time on this planet, but at least i have a small bit to play. We can choose to be loud and try to make the idea of my existance last for a few generations in the history books. Or we can be mild mannered and be happy to live and have 'the simple life'. As humans, mortals, we are given choices everyday, including our attitude. I chose to have optimism and love in my life. I
can hope to share that with others, but ultimately it is always up to the other person.
