You Must Choose
« on: July 16, 2006, 07:11:37 pm »
Elaborate

The Horror of Exsistence: All of the pain and terror of the world bearing down upon you like some hungry beast

The Torment of Nonbeing: Never to feel or to love, to see the sunlight fall upon the face of children or butterflies dance iin teh wind, to spend all of eternity floating in the icy cold of the void.

I take it you're not an optimist.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Torment of Nonbeing.

At leas in the Horrors of Existence you can do something to make things better for yourself. Although it then instills the Horror of Existence in another... but it is a cycle and has to happen.

No not really. I choose exsitence because it eventually ends, leading into the horror of nonbeing...

If you exist, you can feel horror. I'm assuming that you mean that the existance would be horrible.

If you don't exist, then you can't feel horror. Or happiness. You can't feel anything. I'd rather that than live in constant horror.

there is no horror in nonbeing. you do not exist. thus you cannot feel time, boredom, happiness, or horror for that matter. you are not anywere. but to experience horror you must have some sort of being. which you do not have. you evaporate, like water. you become nothing. thus you are not here. you have no being, no mind, no nothing. thus, you cannot experiance the horror of nonbeing because you no longer have a self. there is no more you anywere.

and im not depressed. this is life. i deal with it.

what? its simple. there is no torment of nonbeing because if you are nonbeing you do not exist to feel torment. its like the pain of being stabed when your dead already.
