hmmm... what's wrong with telling people that you want to talk about death instead of talking about something else? the people i chat with would ask me what topic i would like to discuss with them and when i answer death they're like,

"why death?"

and why the hell not talk about death?

it's a relatively wonderful topic...

i prefer death over the usual topics because:
1. politics is overrated... especially the politics in the philippines. it's so damn pathetic it's not worth it anymore...
2. love... now love is such a sophomoric thing to talk about... it's usually mushy... so nobody talks about it to strangers...
3. science and history... it could be fun... but who reads about science and history? people start to doze off if i try to talk about egypt...
4. literature and books... i think that's self explanatory...?
5. sex!!! good god... i hate talking about sex when the people i converse with would start to become perverted and worked up over it... it's not exactly pleasant...

so i nominate death for the best topic award because:
1. nobody really talks about it... so it's something new
2. since it's unchartered territory no one can really say that your opinion on death is wrong!
3. it's a highly debatable topic
4. the possibilities are endless about the life after death thing...
5. the number of ways for a person to die is endless AND somewhat comical at the same time...


Death borders upon our birth, and our cradle stands in the grave. Our birth is nothing but our death begun.
--Bishop Hall

isnt that simply the truth? simply put, we were all born to die... it's a never ending cycle... it's amazing really... what's the purpose to it?

i dunno where i got this but... the issue of life and death is of no relevance... what you make and do while you're in between is what most important...


here's another quotation

Nothing makes a man more aware of his capabilities and of his limitations than those moments when he must push aside all the familiar defenses of ego and vanity, and accept reality by staring, with the fear that is normal to a man in combat, into the face of Death.
--Major Robert S. Johnson, USAAF

so it really comes to one thing... death...

isnt the world along with it's mysteries, rules and values a walking contradiction?

and so i end this entry with this last quote:

Death? Why this fuss about death? Use your imagination, try to visualize a world without death! . . . Death is the essential condition of life, not an evil.

--Charlotte Perkins Gilman

thanks for the net space!!!
