Ok, Firstly it was meant as a joke – in point of fact I am not easy to wind up, if i was Glen and I wouldn’t be such good friends. Glen and I are constantly taking the piss out of each other, and its all good fun; I am pretty easy going on the most part. Its true i don’t have a huge amount of tolerance for people doing a bad job but beyond that… no problems!
So one of the comments attached to my Steve Jobs posting was :
Well then they’d better stop breathing…but really… what for?
Still I think you look at things from the wrong prespective here. They are not wrong they are not right…they simply exist. As you. Accept that and you will be happier and no wind will blow you up.
Hej Owen! I am not a guru here I just try to see things in a better manner (If I can)…so don’ t take this as a critic, more as a thought from a friend that really cares for every single sorrow you might have.
And i have to admit it didn’t annoy me it made me laugh. Firstly because as i said, i wasn’t serious – if i disliked someone enough to not want them to breath the last thing i would do is blog about it. Because if that was the sort of person who is litigious i could get into trouble maybe, or if that person was found floating face down with an axe in their back people may start asking what i am using to chop my firewood.
Secondly stating things are not wrong and not right but simply exist is funny. Right and wrong are matters of perspective, and i understand the sentiment, but it just doesn’t work – if everyone thought that then the world would indeed be populated by hippies, and would be pretty damn boring. If Glen agreed with everything i said all the time and we didn’t have a constant sparring match going, he wouldn’t be nearly as much fun. Simply existing sounds boring as hell. Im not an anarchist at all but i do believe if you are not challenged in life you are not living.
Imagine if superman had said that to the other kryptonians in superman two, when General Zod came down to earth to conquer it – he would have just sat there and watched the chaos and destruction, and that would be ok – as long as nobody fucked with his Zen.
Letting everyone just exist may be a cool idea if your living in a country where you may never see anyone, but living in a world where “They are not wrong they are not right…they simply exist. ” would never work in organized society – everyone would get killed at the first zebra crossing.
For the record I’m pretty happy in life – its good. I don’t need to run up some mountain to find the answer to inner peace: inner peace is different things to different people. I feel at one with the world after a good pint of bitter.
Also, i would hope that none of my friends care about every sorrow I have, because in general I don’t….when i get annoyed it passes in 5 minutes and i move on. I don’t dwell. I know the person that wrote that comment meant no bad, nor do I in my response, but i am sorry i am not ready to go over to the light side any time soon, its far too nice where i am already.
