To be, or not to be?

To be, or not to be?

When it comes
I'll know, I know
Just take my clothes and leave
And I'll be gone

Any one that can reply chooses "to be," as some one that does not put faith in existence should have committed suicide.

Hmm, but what if more folks would rather you choose otherwise?  Would you mind stickin' around a while longer?  :flowers:

how do you all interpret that question.

all i know is that i did not choose either, however, i am both a being and a not being.

how the hell does one choose to be or not to be? there is no choice in my eye, and what great thinker posed this....SEEMINGLY useless question??

shakespeare?

the great (anonymous) writer of the 15th century?

perhaps i am just out of the loop.

If you truly chose that, you would commit suicide.

You are here,you chose your avatar,your user name ,your location and you even got some blue mushrooms indicating a rating.

You are!
I Am!
He is!

(we can continue like that forever)

Yes, you exist ,so do i. There are something one can do that will make him NOT EXIST ,at least in the biological sense but since you ARE already ,why bother? After all our bodies are gonna be eaten by worms in the end.Are we that hasty to see that movie?

The rendezvouz with death is a rendezvouz that noone has missed,however absentminded,bored or "not feel like going there".

Enjoy!

Good answer. And do we even have a choice, even when we think we do?
