Ambiguous Advice

Posted in Philosophy with tags on July 11, 2008 by impliedmortality

Sometimes when someone tells you not to do a particular thing you just need to listen.  You may be thinking, this is just a silly thing and they are being silly for making such a fuss over it.  But it’s what you don’t know, and what they may not want to tell you, that makes it such a big deal.  You never know what may have happened in a persons past and you’re definitely going to feel like a huge ass if you push them too far only to find out why they told you not to do whatever it was you were doing.

I’ll not be sharing the details of what I did but know that on its surface it was totally innocent.  But when I finally pushed to hard the truth was told and, well, I’m a huge ass.

Implied Mortality?

Posted in Philosophy with tags on July 9, 2008 by impliedmortality

“What’s implied mortality mean?”

Well I’ll tell you.  It’s the notion that one’s mortality is only implied and not, as most would presume, guaranteed.  That is until you’re dead…

Of course once you die it seems obvious that your mortality was there all along.  But what if you don’t die?  What if you waste all sorts of time and energy trying to avoid what isn’t there? 

That would be tragic.  Almost as tragic as death itself.

It’s a fine line we must walk between protecting this seemingly fragile and intolerably short life and actually enjoying what little time we have.
