Also about reason, living, and live+14SURVIVAL - or the will to live, seems to be the strongest of all other instincts or drives. It is also the foundation and prerequisite for any and all other instinct's survival. SO - if life is truly without purpose, meaning, or reason, then the will or drive to live would not be the dominant force in all living things. Amirite? More
Also about Psychology+75"don't be alarmed" is what everyone says before telling you something alarming, amirite?
Also by jaime+29Love is, for the most part, a proactive choice. Almost everyone has inner beauty on some level, in the same way someone you love is beautiful to you, so which person actually winds up being as beautiful to you as they are inside mostly depends on who you choose to spend enough time with to discover that beauty. In that regard, there's no right or wrong answer. Whoever you choose to love is an okay person to love, and if you decide to stop loving them, or the other way around, that's rough, but it's still also okay. It's even okay not to choose anyone. The same reasoning applies to friendship.
Also about Psychology+60The amount of people who tried to move things with their mind probably increased dramatically after Star Wars came out, amirite?
Also about reason and choose+71If you had to choose between only observing either faith or reason, you would choose reason. amirite?
Also about reason, die, and live+180The reason so many live artists' works only become expensive after they die is probably because the value is decided almost exclusively by whether or not they can churn out more, amirite?
Also by jaime-63Burden of proof, in resting with the claimant, must move with the claimant as well. If I say something and you tell me you disagree, I still have the burden of proof, beause simply disagreeing makes no claim. But if I say something and you tell me I'm wrong, the burden of proof is then upon both of us, proportioned between us according to the status quo. amirite?
Also by jaime+27Losing everything can be liberating. If you have nothing left to live for, and can make yourself go on living for no reason, that proves that your will to live is strong as iron, and nothing can ever make you choose to die. amirite?
Also about reason, living, and choose+542Pretend you are in a burning building, and for some reason there was a petri dish of 10 living, viable, fertilized 1 week old human embryos that could grow healthily, and also a 5 year old crying toddler in the same building. If you could only save one of them from the fire, you would choose to save the 5 year old, amirite?
Also about die, living, and live+240It would be awesome to, after you die, step out of a VR machine because our whole life was just a game to see what we would do in the 21st century with no memories of the real real world. We could try different games from different time periods and live our lives as if we really were living there and had no knowledge of the super advanced civilisation we're really from, but glean lots of knowledge from past times during these games, amirite?
