RANDOM THOUGHTS AT 5:50AM
all this recent popularity in blogs, in documentaries like "SUPERSIZE ME" and "FARENHEIT 9/11".. this endless fascination in reality tv of late..? I get this sinking suspicion (more likely comical paranoia).. that it's like on some collective subconscial level.. we just KNOW that the end is near, that we as a civilization, or even as a species are DOOMED.. the crazy hobo with the sign hanging around his neck is reading us our future.. and it's looking reaaaally GRIM..
so, before we shuffle off this mass mortal coil.. we're here.. making our last will n testament.. our last minutae of life as it were.. putting our books in order.. and making sure we're not seen as a TOTAL embarassment to history (which, lets face it, is an almost DEAD certainty)
wot WILL future civilizations think of us..?
y'know.. if there's gonna actually be any?
if we dont just fuck it up for everyone..
and not just on earth either..
(coz that wouldn't be enough)
I'd bet some blackhole generated by a particle accelerator experiment runs rampart develops a singularity so wacky stainless-steel-cut-thru-a-bowling-ball sharp it tears a gaping whole in the entire reality construct.. negates the big bang, throws a nice temporal paradox or two replicating to infinity.. and poof our tv show gets cancelled.. them wacky quantum physicists have a LOT to answer for..
if anyone's here to pick thru the pieces..
will any of this mean anything?
is this just ONE big in-joke that nobody else outside our species or culture will ever understand?
sift under all the styrofoam packaging, the coke bottles, plastic bags, asphalt and microwave safe packaging, filter thru all the data.. is it all just nonsense?
fuckit.. if you're reading this 1 million years from now..
I don't have the answer..
none of us do..
cursed to repeat the same mistake over and over again..
be kind, rewind..
consider your time well n truly wasted.. cheers :)
