He was a dreamer, a thinker, a speculative philosopher... or, as his wife would have it, an idiot. -Douglas Adams

We live alone and we die alone but we are NOT alone, well on this planet anyway, not counting animals and insects and all living things.

As far as being alone in the universe I tend to believe we are and if we are not, any intelligent alien would know far better than getting anywhere close to us. He knows very well what we do to people we don’t know, understand and fear or people who just get in the way of our enterprises and expansion. I mean look what we did to the aboriginals, the natives, or all the colonies we have exploited and how we have treated their people. Avatar is not a new idea taken out of thin air it is human reality and it will remain human reality as long as there is one human left on earth.

Ponder on this page a couple of minutes , write the numbers you see when you start and check them again at the end, in that short moment hundreds were born and hundreds died and emotions of all sorts flew left and right by the billions like a massive tidal karmic kosmic wave, a tsunami of unfathomable proportions. Every second, like a big lung, like a big heart this planet goes through a billion sensations, one is elated, one is sobbing, one is eaten the other is enjoying his meal, millions of marriages and funerals and joys and sorrows nonstop: shallow experiences, deep epiphanies going up and down the Richter scale like an oscilloscope on crystal meth. Sartre said that Hell is other people but also Heaven can be other people it just depends where your eyes and hearts are pointing at the time, but there is both Utter Beauty and utter horrific Ugliness in this world happening every nanosecond. Which one outweighs which one is a matter of opinion.

Pro 10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

1Pe 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

And there sure is a MULTITUDE of SINS on this planet on any given day.

NUMBERS absolutely fascinate me. I have this crazy theory the the 6,666,666,666th soul born was the antichrist LOL but we’re gonna be SEVEN BILLIONS soon back in my school days we were barely 3


  1. You've given me a lot to ponder about here. I guess you're right, depending on how we look at things there is indeed a heaven and a hell. You certainly know how to examine the big picture of life and manage to capsulate it in a few paragraphs of words.

  2. well thank you anonymous capsulate the big picture is a nice metaphor too and we all know I LOVE metaphors :)

  3. "Which one outweighs the other, is a matter of opinion". Very true, it's like when you're having the best day of your life, many unexpected things coincide to make it beyond extraordinary, but then one tiny predictable bad thing happens, and it's all washed away. Not proportionate by any means, but it outweighs the other.
