Dreams. And love.
And death, you cant avoid that one :)

But you can stay true.

We create, sometimes it stinks. We change. Education makes it possible. the way of the elders, telling us about their mistakes, and new learning. That's what makes a history, ourselves instructing ourselves, decade by decade, century by century. And yourself.

Global warming is the biggest mistake we ever made. But we will learn from it.

Or, overpopulation, if one like. But that answer is too simple, it does not exclude a global warming.

In this 'static reality' I dream of, nothing is weighted.
Free will is what creates your history, and mine.

So, a 'null game' still.

But one where you actually matter.

There is always one more way to describe it. You need to acknowledge that one, and still find your own way.

What you need to understand is that the 'null game' , or 'static reality' I refer to, isn't about us. It's about a uncountable amount of 'dimensions' of space and time. set into one continuum. That is, as long as we exclude 'histories' or 'time'. Free will is like a really good story, one that you want to tell your kids about at bed time. The presumption I make here is the one about differing between something that is good, versus, something that is bad. And that one is no different from presuming that we all can agree on the color green :) or what is salt. And yes, there will always be a few missing out on those, but the majority of us do know the differences.

Another presumption I make is that we want it to get better, for us all, not only you. One might be able to make a case for this just being a result of greed, combined with over exploitation and incompetence though. Well, then we will become a failed species.

No way we can survive ourselves, if that is the limit of our seeing.

The older I get, the more suspicious I get :)

The things I just presumed to be true becomes tinged. As a window pane darkly gleaming. Weird stuff, isn't it? Why would people of good minds and sound bodies :) spend their life lying?

I don't really know, what I do see is that they do. And I have no answer for this. It's not belonging to what I see as logic, greed yes, but the logic fails.

As you put them against the wall you'll get a emotional response, making sense. But it won't be true. There is no satisfaction to it, just smoke and mirrors. In the end, they become a failed species. The only defense that is left is the one I present. The way of the warrior, not getting stuck looking at others, look at yourself.

Most of the people using media, and being used by the same, fits this category.

Greed is not a logic. It's you failing.

And yes. now a days I find this a lot more important than thinking about physics. But I don't enjoy writing about it, I don't seem to have any choice though :) I prefer physics to this. it's cleaner.

Yeah, wish I was somewhere where honor, love, and truth, mattered. You will know truth, as you meet it.

The truth will not make you free, but it will let you meet your death in dignity. For me that's important.

Don't know about you though?
Do you find it important, or not :)

Do I care?

Remember, I live the way of the warrior.
