im tired of being of the species homo sapiens, that is to say, tired of being human. id much rather be something more useful and interesting, like a dragon! except well dragons tend not to exist anymore, so mabye something simpler, like a phoenix! everyone knows theyre still around, plus id be immortal, rising from the ashes and whatnot, pretty snazzy dont you agree?immortality does sound pretty appealing dosent it?
i wonder if sentience is its own curse as well as its own blessing. on one hand you have the ability to question; to ask why;to understand. On the other you also have the abilty to ignore everything but your own little personal world and what you personally know to be "true".
agent smith in the matrix was right. the human race is a virus, metaphorically at least. to survive we must consume and multiply, and it never stops. but there is a crucial differance. the virus spreads without knowledge of its own doings, it dosent have the option to decide, or the option to feel remorse for what it does. we have both options, but from our actions youd never think that was the case, we choose to be what we are,becuase even though we can deny our nature, its much more easier to just continue on the same, and from a species of hairless apes who sit on their asses all day, its not to hard to figure out why we never even make the effort.
(edit)whats the use of talking about the wolrd?it seems almost like you shouldnt, becuase everyone else does?
and what about iraq? they say were there to establish a goverment where the iraqi people are free. well what is america really about? being free? or being equal? america, the land of freedom. america, the land of equality. we cant have one without the other. its the same with iraq. will the shiites, who have been oprressed by the sunni's for decades, find the equaLity theyve been denied for so long? or will the sunni's having oppressed the shiites for so long, find themselves the center of a malestrom of hatred? probably both, old habits die hard, after all in america, equality may be law, but it dosent matter in the minds of those who would hate, they hate just to hate. equality has to evolve naturally over time, over here were still in the process of learning what it means to realize were all the same. skin color/ethnicity/religion is as relevant as your eye color, and who really says "i hate people with blue eyes?"
