There is no good way to finish that sentence, if I finish it with failure then im being negative, but if i finish it off with greatness then it sounds arrogant, not that im talking about myself, but people will assume I am. I guess the question I have been thinking about destiny is, if individuals have destinies they must fulfill then it would make sense that there is a universal destiny that we are all building to, the problem with that is that it makes time (for us at least) limited, it means that we (in our own small ways) are a means to an end, but one of the things I love the most about our existance (as we know it) is the perpetualness (don’t know if thats a real word) of it. the fact that “we live and we die and the world keeps spinning” in the words of Jack Nicholson (im paraphrasing).
There is something almost romantic about the inevitability of it all, some people would find it daunting, like swimming in the sea, they need something to hold onto. But the way I see it is, if im not going to affect the eventuality of the universe, of time. Then the only thing I can affect is the here and now, the people who are here and now, because hopefully if enough of us gang together, then we will be a significantly bigger blip… on the radar of time. (I have also just used lots of words to say not much at all.
I feel that I have gone on a slightly larger tangent on the subject of destiny than the one that Georg intended to go on. I have attempted to piece together exactly what he was talking about, and if its what I think it is, then he’s right, it is not to be talked about in such a public forum. I look forward to having the discussion with you, and am obliged to agree with you on your point.
I on the other hand, am also going to leave you with a slightly cryptic message, (and I should say its not a crude bing, but it is a bing.) If Hans was in Norway when he was in Liverpool, (not the vilgar meaning) and Georg is in… shall we say Germany (although I don’t know that much yet… but you catch my drift) now that he’s in Switzerland, then I am also in Israel… now that I’m in London. Although Israel is also not specific… but its all the details you now have.
I hope we understand eachother… it proves to be a VERY… informative new year. I think that emptying a bottle of John Daniels will do us all some good.
Hans sucks to be doing that event of yours, but hey at least you have internet, imagine if you didn’t!
Eyal… Signing out.
Even I… occasinally, am proven wrong…
P.S Hans your next post is VERY exciting indeed! Don’t miss it!
