What reason drives you and more importantly... is it good enough?
I know this is rhetoric, and meant more to be discussed and not answered, but as I've asked myself the same question before, I've come up with an answer I'm content with.
I'm interested in things to come, and that's good enough for me
. Now, maybe my answer is vague enough that it's not really an answer. *shrug* But between world politics, leaps of technology, and simple things in day to day life that make me want to learn, there's too many things that interest me that makes me just want to see what the hell happens tomorrow. Now, do I
matter in the "grand scheme of things" in the cosmological sense? Probably not, but honestly that question is so unimaginably large that I get the feeling I can't realistically
imagine what that means for even the human race, much less the rest of the universe. The universe is 13.75 billion
years old...I can't fathom what the universe will be like when it's 137.5 billion. Just moving a decimal place makes my brain hurt from the possibilities. I know eventually, the universe will reach a heat death or any other similarly resulting end, but then you just have to wonder what happens next if anything.
Kind of went off on a different tangent there, but being forced to consider my own mortality, I've tried to do so in small steps, and I think one of the thoughts that bugs me the most is this: There is always some movie trailer around that I am interested in seeing, but one day I will
eventually see a trailer to a movie that I will never
live long enough to see. Sounds corny, but it's sort of metaphorical too for things I want to do and will never accomplish.
I fail at philosophy fyi.
