aliveness
Noon For some, the height of existence is being in the thick of things, being amidst action, without the encumberance of thought and analysis. 051013
...
Midnight Whereas for others, the real pleasure of existence comes from a studied reflection upon what has happened. Or extrapolation about what might later happen. There is pleasure in facts, in certainties. Or, alternatively, in fantasy. The unlimited realms of potential, or the finite realms of what is probable. Either way, for some, action is only a means to an evaluative process, or to an imaginative or creative process. 051013
...
Noon They are all, however, dependent upon action. 051013
...
Midnight Oh? What makes you so certain about that? 051013
...
Noon Aren't imagining, creating, analyzing and whatnot all actions, of a sort? 051013
...
Midnight What are you saying? That I am Noon, and you are Midnight? 051013
...
Noon It would really depend upon who you ask. 051013
...
Midnight There must be some limits as to what is relative and what is not...musn't there? 051013
...
Noon It would really depend on the person or entity contemplating such a concept. 051013
...
Midnight What a mess Dawn and Dusk have created. 051013
...
Noon Yes. And messes are wonderfully action packed, aren't they? Have you ever felt...so...alive? 051013
...
Midnight I think I will study the mess thoroughly. I will extrapolate about this, and I will extrapolate about that. I will fantasize about what the mess could be but currently is not. 051013
...
Noon Is that artful science, or scientific art? 051013
...
Midnight It simply is. Those are the things that I do. I cannot help but imagine. 051013
...
Noon You are beginning to sound like me! 051013
...
Midnight Indeed, the distinction between us has become rather blurry... 051013
...
Noon So it is, with life and death. 051013
...
Midnight HEY! Are you saying I am DEAD? I am quite alive, thank you very much. 051013
...
Noon But...you are after the death brought by Dusk, and before the birth brought by Dawn... 051013
...
Dawn & Dusk LEAVE US OUT OF THIS. 051013
...
Noon What I mean is, is...is... 051013
...
Midnight Is Isis. That is what you mean. 051013
...
Isis Please, leave me out of this as well. 051013
...
Midnight But Isis you are supposed to be on my side! 051013
...
Isis And I very well may be so, but right now I am busy with other things. 051013
...
Midnight Hmph. For being dead, I sure have a lot of feelings about this all. 051013
...
Noon Well, what did you expect? That being dead meant complete annihiliation of all awareness? 051013
...
Dawn & Dusk HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

HEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEE!!!

HOHOHOHOHO!!!
051013
...
Midnight That is my association with being dead, yes. What else would death be, if not the complete annihilation of all awareness? 051013
...
Noon So then, life is the complete maximization of all awareness? Why must they be polar opposites? Even when asleep, you dream, thinking you are awake. 051013
...
Midnight Dreaming is only a scrambled - or perhaps, unscrambled - interpretation of the preceding day - or days. It is a psychological function. There is a reason for dreaming, and it is tied to waking. 051013
...
Noon Why, thank you. That saves me from any need to explain to you the states of life and death. 051013
...
Midnight You didn't explain anything at all. 051013
...
Noon I didn't have to. You already explained it. The awareness you experience while dead is only a scrambled - or perhaps unscrambled - interpretation of one's previous life - or lives. I suppose you could call it a spiritological function. There is a purpose for having an awareness when dead, and it is tied to living. 051013
...
Midnight This conversation bugs me. I don't like it. I think it is scatological. Who cares? Either way, here I am, or rather, here we are, having this discussion. If I am dead, then you are communing with the dead, which is a ridiculous idea. There is a difference between death and life, I'm sure of it. 051013
...
Noon Sure, there is a difference, espe- 051013
...
Midnight Enough. I don't want to talk about it. In fact I don't want to talk to you at all. I'm mad and you hurt my feelings. See how alive I am? I, death, am a living thing, and there is nothing you can do about it! 051013
...
Noon That's fine; I was saying the sam- 051013
...
Midnight I don't care if you were saying the Sam or if you weren't saying the Sam! LEAVE ME ALONE, NOON! 051013
...
Sam Leave me alone, too. Both of you. 051013
...
Noon Oh? And what are you both going to do? Remain in a permanent state of sunrise or sunset? How silly. 051013
...
Midnight La la la la la la la - I CAN'T HEAR YOU! - la la la la la la la. 051013
...
Noon Oh, how childish. Sheesh. 051013
...
Midnight How could I be childish if I am DEAD? 051013
...
Noon I thought you couldn't hear me. 051013
...
Midnight I...couldn't. I was...using my...intuition. 051013
...
Noon Look, I'm not saying that being dead has similarities to being alive with the intention of hurting you, my dear Midnight. I was merely trying to chat about this, and that. 051013
...
Midnight Oh, I know. But if death retains similarities to being alive, then what do you call the ultimate state of nothingness? 051013
...
Noon Let's call it "Andru235". I think that would be a great name for the ultimate state of nothingness. 051013
...
andru235 whatever. leave me out of this. 051013
...
Midnight I'm sorry if I ignored you, Noon. 051013
...
Noon Apology accepted. I know you can be overly sensitive at times. 051013
...
Midnight Well I'm not THAT sorry. Yikes. Don't be so haughty. 051013
...
Noon Look, can I buy you lunch or something? There is no need for us to fight about such trivial things. 051013
...
Midnight See? Look how selfish you are! Lunch, my stars! LUNCH! Lunch is a noontime event! 051013
...
Noon Fine. Be that way. See if I care. I can't offer to by you the corollary meal for the middle of the night because there ISN'T one. 051013
...
Midnight Oh, yes there is. Several of those silly earthly religious sects have meals at midnight. I shouldn't deride them, of course; they are the only earthly people that regularily eat in my honor. 051013
...
Noon Actually, it isn't in your honor. They eat then because they are really hungry after fasting all day in MY honor. Nothing personal, of course. 051013
...
Midnight Noon, you can be such a snob. Such a snoot. Such a big goof. 051013
...
Noon I think you like it that way, my little strudel. 051013
...
Midnight Oh, Noon! Make love to me! Take me in your arms, the way you always used to! 051013
...
Noon Oh, Midnight! Oh! 051013

Dawn & Dusk Oh, that's just Life and Death, making sweet sweet love to each other, once again. What a pair! What a duo! LET'S HAVE ICE CREAM! 051013
what's it to you?
