The most important day in human history is coming, Will. I just want you and your family to be on the right side of it.
Most human emotions exist on a kind of continuum. People talk about lack of empathy, but we all have limits to our empathy.
It’s not a pleasant thought, John, but I have this terrible feeling from time to time that we might all just be human.
I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
Human beings are the only animal that forms ideas about their world. We perceive it not through our bodies but through our minds. We must agree on what is real. Because of this, we are the only animal on Earth that goes mad.
We humans are alone in this world for a reason. We murdered and butchered anything that challenged our primacy.
To do nothing is the hardest job of all. And it will take every ounce of energy that you have. To be impartial is not natural, not human.
