Why The Future Is Not So Important
It’s not now, that’s why.
Now is everything. I know I’m not the first to make the observation, but that was all in the past. Everything, in fact, is all in the past.
So maybe that’s all that matters.
This time thing, what a mystery.
I revisit things all the time now. Watched Friendly Persuasion, starring Gary Cooper, this afternoon, for instance. What a great movie! Small lives confronting large questions. Like we all do
Nice day today. Is the one any more worthy of note than the other? Probably not, but who am I to say? Trouble is, if I don’t take a stand, who will? Nobody, that’s who.
Nobody. But who cares, anyway?
All the interesting questions lead to this same frustration. Is this what the Nihilist philosophy is all about?
Nobody. And everybody.
