Thoughts from last night
Some people worry much about death yet they don't worry at all about the 8 hours "death" they have every single night.
Sleep, Unconsciousness, coma, death and even Alzheimer/dementia all the same thing really deep down.
Morpheus, Hypnos and Thanatos are all interrelated.
Sure there remains the Hamlet's
What Dreams may or may not come thingie but still unconsciousness, oblivion, being unborn
or being dead is all the same thing.
We didn't miss it before we won't miss it after.
Same process for every single trillions and trillions of life forms except we think we are "Special" apes very similar to many Rusty Cohle conversations here.
I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
The ontological fallacy of expecting a light at the end of the tunnel, well, that’s what the preacher sells, same as a shrink. See, the preacher, he encourages your capacity for illusion. Then he tells you it’s a fucking virtue. Always a buck to be had doing that, and it’s such a desperate sense of entitlement, isn’t it?
If you live to 70
you spend roughly 400 thousands hours "awake"
and 200 thousands hours sleeping.
Now the fact that you were sleeping for billions of years before you were born
and will be sleeping again for another few billion years again
should not be so dreadful.
The problem obviously came with the invention of religion and scary horror story for the sole purpose to control you and make some money from you again like Rusty said it all started when one monkey looked at the sun and said to the other monkey
"he said to give me all your bananas/money etc."
It IS the country from where no one has returned therefore no one knows for sure.
I like to think of it as the great Equaliser or the great rest somehow.
No more pain, no more heartbreak,
no more lies, no more deceit,
hell no more pissing or shitting even.
Death IS our one last DUMP.
So when you gotta go, you gotta go.
