Might indivudalism represent levels of superficiality when using positive, negative descriptive words? Might everything be validated because it exists? There's social relevance, intellectual property that may at least partially represent an indivudals indviduality but might it represent a level of superficiality?

Might it? Thoughts?

Examples:


"Metal music is AWESOME!"
"Metal music sucks..."

Are the descpritive words really even relevant?

  • guys, i'm not talking about aftelifd in a religious way, I'm not talking about heavem and hell. I think if there is an afterlie, it's the same thing 4 every one. If i go to a place worse than here, every one would go there. When you're skeptical about everything, you cant be sure that when we die we shut down like a computer. If you can really prove that, Then i would gladly end my life cuz i hate livin. Have an open mind about death.
  • Oh come on, guys. If you do have proof that there is no afterlife and we shutdown like a computer then tell me.
    You'll not be responsible for my suicide, i'll make it look like Bender forcefully pushed me inside of a Suicide Booth ...

    I watch Futurama on occasion. I bought the first and second season on DVD. I was watching the new season but lost track of it, don't know if it's still going now.

    Why do you live for death? You should make the most of what you know for certain you have. Live your life now. Life sucks at times, but it is also marvelous. You have access to a computer, and just by that you have a leg up in the world.

    This is a claim that many people make when they've been raised in this thought process. I recall when I was still a religious individual I would make the claim that I would easily kill myself if I found out that none of it was true. I'm completely nonreligious now, and I've learned to appreciate life a lot more because of it.

    If you really do have issues and such, please do go see a shrink. I'm dead serious.

    Another thing, sorta a pet peeve of mine, one can't prove that there is no afterlife because you can't make an assertion out of lack of an assertion. The one that should be demonstrating proof are the ones claiming any sort of afterlife. And even then, what afterlife?
  • The big irony of life is that whatever you do - you die. Of old age, of a brick that fell on your head, of something else. And that may depress some people, question the point of living, why they live if they just can die and to hell with everything... well, you know what? That's a very selfish outlook on life.

    The point is, when YOU die - you WON'T know that you died. Just like you don't know that you're asleep until the last minute when dreams start pumping into your head and you weak up (death is not called eternal sleep for nothing). When YOU die, it's OTHERS who have to live with your death. It's others who will be saddened by your death, it's others who will grieve. YOU won't know or feel jack shit.

    So anyone's who's complaining about the meaning of life or something - should stop doing that and start thinking about making significance in the life of other people - because THAT significance is how you will be remembered. And if you manage to make other people happy while doing what you like doing in this life while you live - if you manage to balance the selfishness with selflessness (I think that both extremes are pretty bad on their own) - that makes you a happy person, and that makes your life, whatever it is/was/will be (a life of a clerk, a game developer, an engineer, a janitor, of a simple married man/woman) worth living.

    That's what I think about living and dying.
