Whats the most important thing?
    #4642182 - 09/10/05 03:10 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

You're alive just like billions of others. You may have noticed that it's been going on for a long time this way. Nothing much about humans has changed in the historical timespan. You're going to die in a little while. No ones going to pay attention to your passing for very long if at all. You're not special or different in any miraculous way. It's all a crapshoot in some ways.

So what's the most important thing to you, about living your life out?

" All that lives was born to die"-Anom.

With much wisdom comes much sorrow,
The more knowledge, the more grief.

Live life to its fullest, be able to celebrate the little amount of time i have here on earth and make it worthwhile for me, and for everyone else for that matter. i want my actions in my life to have positive effects in the long run. because the world is shaped by the way we act.

what about you?

Giving more then I take. 

We're all one, it's time the human race wakes up and realizes this.  Once this is realized then we can do what we can to provide a better future for ourselves.  I see this happening through environmentalism.  As well as changing the consensus of the small minority of people that control most aspects of life for others to a more loving and accepting view.


But none of this is possible without love :heart:

You should! You are! You're free!

I'M FREE- I'm free,
And freedom tastes of reality,
I'm free-I'm free,
AN' I'm waiting for you to follow me.

If I told you what it takes
to reach the highest high,
You'd laugh and say 'nothing's that simple'
But you've been told many times before
Messiahs pointed to the door
And no one had the guts to leave the temple!

I'm free-I'm free
And freedom tastes of reality
I'm free-I'm free
And I'm waiting for you to follow me.

[Chorus:]

How can we follow?
How can we follow?

I think happiness is a very important concept.
Knowing that I've help improve the life of a fellow human being gives me more happiness and a sense of fulfillment than nearly anything I can currently think of.
My worldview goes like this: Nihilism/Discordianism ---> Hedonism/Epicureanism ---> Altruism + a teaspoon of Utilitarianism

living in extremes....either a life of luxury or a bum.....oh and i enjoy being bipolar as well....i think they are important to human evolution...

by the way humans have changed a lot...maybe not physically or mentally...but our technology is a lot different...and we've evolved a bit socially i think as well.

Entertainment, of course. Everything is entertainment in such a life as our own.

The Universe is fixed like breakfast heroin -- rest assured and find peace.

The most important thing in this world is others; other people and especially my family.

After all, if I am not so special a few billion me's must have some significance.
