this is mostly just another random thought of mine..
probably going around in circles..
probably mentioned this before..
but.. it's funny how many of us.. don't really live our lives..
it's like that trivial thing - the human body is 60 - 80% water..
and, probably the same percentile of our lives amount to nothing..
a big vast sneezing expanse of non-life..
the darkmatter of the universe internal.. or, I dunno some crap like that..
I mean, take blogs for instance..
one of the newer items, in the long list if things.. developed to distract people from life..
well, wot'ever lives they have.. we distract them, for a few short minutes..
then there's mountains of music..
a whole industry..
devoted.. mostly.. at least in "popular" forms of music..
to escapism.. avoiding one's own life..
it's where you make the most money..
making music, that replaces the need for people to live..
they hear the music.. and everything's fine..
we have movies, we have tv shows, we have computer games, we have sport.. we have a wealth of strange and colourful distractions.. all very nice n all.. but really, they're just there to distract us from life..
most of us.. are stuck in strangely abstracted jobs, seemingly with no meaning.. to earn us just enough money.. to live our lives.. despite the fact, most our life.. is spent IN this job..
the time we have left, we spend doing the above.. sitting passive.. absorbing..
but really, wot IS left?
when you take away all the distractions?
now THAT is the scary bit isn't it?
the thing you need an army of philosophers to figure out..
we spend a lifetime avoiding it..
but, wot the hell IS this life?
and why are we so afraid of it..
running around, reading blogs.. reading up on other people's lives.. in most cases, merely reporting on OTHER people's "fictional lives"..
where the hell is the life?
and do we even need it anymore?
are the smoke n mirrors enough to sustain us?
now.. THAT's something to bend ya noodle..
