For your consideration
« on: July 25, 2017, 11:56:37 AM »
Fuck it's been quiet around here.

Do you accept that choosing the most sensible course of action one after the other will lead to the best outcome?

Sounds like a simple concept but of course it's not at all simple.
The famous "morality tests" come to mind. The trolley problem for instance.

In the larger sense are we, the royal we, you know, the editorial, marching down a dead end street?
Drawn in stark terms "is the world were Bill Gates is the richest man in the world unarguably better than one where Alexander the Great wept because there were no more worlds left to conquer"?
Hmmmm!
More and more I find that I believe in almost nothing.


Except Beer!

The blessing and curse of this human existence is our ability to be conscience and think while never truly having any answers.  What is there to believe in other than the mystery that forever surrounds it all.

That was an interesting quiz. Thanks for sharing it.

I don't question the deeper meaning of much anymore. I used to be quite philosophical when I was younger, but thinking about such things feels exhausting these days. An occasional beer is a fine substitute.

Indeed.
A large portion of the wisdom that comes with age is smelling our own Bullshit IMO
