Death in Teheran
    #2566193 - 04/16/04 01:03 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

A rich and mighty Persian once walked in his garden with one of his servants.  The servant cried that he had just encountered Death, who had threatened him.  He begged his master to give him his fastest horse so that he could make haste and flee to Teheran, which he could reach that same evening.  The master consented and the servant galloped off on the horse.  On returning to his house the master himself met Death, and questioned him,  "Why did you terrify and threaten my servant?"  "I did not threaten him; I only showed supirse in still finding him here when I planned to meet him tonight in Teheran," said Death.

:eek:

Nice... pretty much sums it up, at least for me.

Bah... destiny is backwards-looking.

B-b-b-ut you mean these types of quaint fables have no real-world counterpart?  :shake:

The proof is in the pudding.

I'm destined to die, and no amount of free will in the world is going to stop it from happening.

... nor free medical care.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
