    Yeah, but J, you could just wish to be free from afterlives, and then just kill yourself or something.

    Why you gotta take the whole universe with ya?

    Because that solves all problems ever and prevents any future hangups or consequences of any actions.

    Just blank it all out.

    People who enjoy life are silly. This would be doing them a favor.

    I went to a hookah bar with some friends last night. It was odd, all the customers were Armenian, but all the servers were scantily clad Asian women.

    Anyone want to recommend me a good book translation of the Odyssey? Preferably one that would be a lighter read? Because I have a pretty dense version in an anthology, but time is a factor here.

    I found a book long ago that was the Odyssey and Illiad in one book
    It was a light read but I highly doubt you could get it unless you have access to the various zones that are outside of space and time

    My wish for the universe is for it to know my name or my work until the very end of things.

    My wish for my life is for it to be awesome.

    The first has the better odds so far.

    Man, that's a terrible wish J!

    It's the best wish ever.

    Why would you want to end everything, forever?

    Emo. Safely ignored.

    Not even I wish I could undo my life. People can be awfully depressed, but anyone that says something like that doesn't mean it.

    I'm not Emo, god damn it!

    Yeah, something I could grab from my local Barnes and Noble would be keen. Still working on that whole, being a pan-dimensional creature thing.

    Do you want awesome within the context of life-afforded possibilities or do you want unbounded awesome which exists independed of the retarded limits of this reality?

    Perspective is an odd thing. Perspective suggests viewing things contextually, limiting one's imagination and desires to fit within the afore mentioned context. Perspective is "settling", "accepting", and "accomodating".

    The bind I get in is that if one is in a disadvanteagous situation nigh-everyone would suggest that they persue a path to self-betterment. If one is enslaved one ought to seek freedom, for example.

    But what of life itself? Ought'nt one seek better than this shoddy excuse for reality with which we are presented?

    Yeah, but they are kitties which exibit kittenness within the confines of this belittling reality.

    Imagine a kitten unbounded, unrestrained by the confines of this reality.

    Imagine the kitten great than which cannot be thought; a kitten without limitations.

    That is the kitten I desire.

    Man, reading all this Beowulf is really making me get quite the itch for that Conan MMO. But MMOs are bad...

    Maybe I'm just happy because I look at philosophy and see a bunch of men with scholars caps on in one huge circle jerk.

    Right. Within any context one must accept the context and exist within it. When one plays WoW one is subject to the rules of WoW.

    But we can leave WoW and find a greater context.

    So what of the context beyond reality, the unbounded context without limits?

    Alternative:
    The confines of the system of reality suck ass. Why bother subjecting one's self to those confines for 60+ years?

    I have no idea what that means.

    Basically, what I am trying to say is, I make it a point not to get bent out of shape over things I have absolutely no power over changing, such as how reality functions.

    See, J, you and I just disagree on one huge, key point here.

    You think the confines of this reality suck.

    I think they are kicking rad.

    Because if one played a game one did not enjoy one's fellow players would suggest that the individual find another game or another system that better suits their particular interests or desires.

    presumably that rule ought to hold true for reality itself.
