potential
me There is no such thing the American dreams has lead us astray and made people believe that they can achieve more then their station in life. Baby growing up to believe that they matter are will become something more then the clerk at a 24 hour 7/11. Along with pop culture which is telling us that we most conform or be forgotten what are we, nothing more then a mindless mass of disorganized drones to be set in motion driving this economy and government forward? Please just abandon all hope at the door like the rest of us. 030109

di luce Just the thought - as far fetched as it may be - of some other guy in her arms is enough to drive me mad. My body seethes with powerful envy and subtle rage with the picture of another's hand in hers. Her eyes wandering lovingly to his, instead of mine. I'm just plain old brown. So much to control. So much to control. 030206

Isaac a bitter question with no answer. a light in the eyes that's beautiful to behold and impossible to hold. a long dark alley with God and a club at the end. endless, unknowing, unknowable, painful, deceitful, useless; death is at the end of every single one. 031103

nonlucid Sometimes when people argue about abortion, it becomes a mindless debate on when-does-life-really begin, moving onto whether one side'd allow contraception because that's taking away potential kiddies, and if that's bad, then what about all those bajillions of sperm out there who'll never have a chance to be a kid? Unfair to them?

(and then, tangentially, there's the issue of control, we gotta have kiddies to grow up and fit into the consumer machine to take care of the old people, but we don't want overpopulation, and can't force anyone to do anything, so we have programs and suggestions and stuff and bonuses)

Then you could think, maybe if you live in the US and have a kid there, maybe it's unfair because you're taking away the potential to maybe have better "culture" by living in Europe, or maybe said kid would be happier living on a farm and you're depriving the world of every single thing that could happen, all the infinite possible futures that'll never happen

But, see, if you like the multiple universes theory, it doesn't /matter what you choose, because somewhere else "you" did the right thing (or wrong thing) so somewhere it happened that way and this is just one of the choices, everything exists in the universe

But that's depressing because it means what I do doesn't matter and maybe I should just kill myself so another me doesn't - and anyway, there's another one out there who never thought of that and is perfectly well-balanced and happy and brilliant...

Does it matter?
