I wonder...

...there is much to consider. Do those whose lives are endangered by others live each day as though it will be their last? Or do they carry on as though things are normal?

What does it mean to live as though you know you will die? Surely that is something that all sentient beings know, that that final fate awaits them no matter what.

...I would rage against it with all that I am. I would not go quietly. I would change my fate.

I will bring justice.

[Cyrus, someone is staring at you and hard. Look at those yellow eyes glaring at the screen. Look at his body shaking as if he's cold, his mind and heart racing a mile a minute as he reads your entry. He wanted to beat you down, make you feel the pain he had went through while inside that machine. You had broken his trust and now he wants to break you.

But he's afraid, so very afraid. His fear is preventing him from flying over to your room to attack or at the very least speak his mind. You have taken away his will to confront you... and he hates himself for it.

He turn away from the screen and shuts the video off. You may have won this battle, but the war is far from over. He will get you, Cyrus. And you can bet your life on that]

[[Usually he would permit himself a smirk, although he felt no joy in such a thing. It would have been a calculated measure meant to intimadate his opponent. But instead he only stared back at the sudden video feed with empty eyes, feeling only that he had done what was necessary and would continue to do so.]]

And what is accomplished that way? What is gained in the end?

Such limited answers...I speak not of the self at this point, but of the world. The self is transient for most, with only outstandingly rare exceptions, and what remains must go beyond that.

That is what I inquired of you.

Although I will answer for myself. What remains must change the world, even in a small way. To exist only to exist is to be a waste of resources and utterly forgettable.

We all must change the world. Else it will continue along this rotten path unabated.

As a species is nothing. What have we accomplished in a million years of civilization? Those things that plague us are unconfronted.

I suppose it's nothing I have to worry about anymore.

Perhaps. Yet those you surround yourself with will know that end someday.

And ghosts are...unusual in that regard. Ghost types can be injured. They are not indestructable...perhaps someday you, too, will pass on.

I can only hope they're appreciating their lives, then.

Hmm. A final rest... I don't think I deserve it just yet.

An end is not a matter of deserving. It is a matter of time.

Being a mercenary, I sure don't value every last second as though I was gonna die. That'd be a waste of my time. When you die, you die. That's that, and you won't give a damn once your lights are already out.

Surely there were regrets heard from tne dying...and yet to focus on such a thing prevents accomplishment. It is a balance that must be taken to mind.

Regretting something isn't going to make it better. What's done is done. Anyways, I can go along with that last bit. Too many people cry over spilled milk, and it's annoying.

I have heard that regret leads to alteration...should they survive, that is. Clearly to bemoan ones fate with a dying breath is useless.

So what? If you're gonna die, you're gonna die, and there's nothing that can change that. It's not worth getting your panties all in a knot over it.

So you would not change anything if you knew there was a considerably increased chance that you would perish tomorrow.

If I knew exactly WHEN that might change something, but otherwise, nope!

Live every day like it was our last? Yes, I believe there is some merit in that.

I feel that it's hard to appreciate one's inevitable mortality without first experiencing something that brings you very close to it. It's a very... abstract concept, don't you think?

Date: 2011-07-12 02:47 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] will-be-god.livejournal.com
Quite. Yet I wonder if it is different...

How different, if I may ask...?

That is what I seek to understand.
