Listening to: Grass/Animal Collective
I thought I would do something random and optimistic, and say that I love you all. Despite the fact if we've never met, if we've lost contact, or you have remained close to me; even if you have come hate my guts, and despise my very existence, I love you beyond belief. Because no matter what, the fact remains… You are just like me. You are a living being with a centralized brain that runs on carbon and electricity. You see the same percent of the cosmos as me, and (for all intents and purposes, relating to the size of the universe) live exactly where I do. We live on one of eight spheres of matter, that happen to revolve around a larger one that is constantly combusting, which in turn is one of billions upon billions swirling in a gigantic whirlpool, which yet again is among billions and billions more just like it. Put into this perspective, the hate we humans feel against each other seems so mundane and trivial, like it doesn't need to be this way; as if the idea of hate still lingering around in the year 2013 is solely the result of ignorance. In the scope of the whole universe, we are as intimate as we can ever get. Seeing as I define good as 'something that benefits both you and your species', love is the only absolute good, and I no longer see any reason to run away from it.
For the off chance that I come across as naive, don't get me wrong. I'm well aware that our planet is full of plenty of assholes and malicious people that would gladly end my life in a heartbeat. By no means do I or anyone else have to put with people like that. Ever. Regardless (and as much as I hate using this word), even the most vile, EVIL human out there, remains a human: One organism among many, that somewhere along the way convinced themselves that they were somehow doing good. I personally don't believe in the concept of evil, and in my opinion the only way to truly rid what people define as evil is to offset it with love… Precious, precious love. It is something we all want, and something we all deserve. No matter what.
