Delay the Inevitable? How Droll.

Written by dee32693 on February 26, 2010

To Begin.



Mankind is a great species. How could we describe ourselves as anything but? We have the ability to predict the weather, to alter the landscape and to travel to other worlds. We are also now on the verge of creating other forms of life, by means of genetic manipulation and advanced robotics. But nature is about one thing and one thing alone: survival. We are the first species to have the ability to destroy ourselves and that surely can’t be a good thing. As we have become more advanced we have also become more fragile, becoming too dependent on our complex society and complex technological systems. It is widely believed that something as simple as the breakdown of our communication infrastructure could doom us to extinction. For all of our advances can we really say that we could withstand the natural disasters that other species have faced? Can we say with certainty that we will still exist in several million years time, unaltered and still kicking ass like the crocodiles? Only time will tell.

One consolation is that if mankind does become extinct, we will leave behind a legacy in the form of our great buildings and monuments. However, recent thoughts on this matter are that within one thousand years of mans extinction, almost all evidence of our civilization will have crumbled away. Buildings will crumble, cars will rust and nature will simply get to work on it’s next great innovation.

Mankind is great, yes, but by no means are we eternal. (Avery, Luther, 2009)

Now that you have had something to ponder/debate within yourself...

Uncertainty



How's life? Mine is going quite well thanks for asking. I've been accepted into the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, got definite proof my friends in real life actually DO care about me and aren't just hanging around cause they feel bad for me(I am a very insecure person), and I've got my family to hug and love. Yeah, I'm glad for them all, even those demons I call siblings D<

Man guys, I don't know where life is gonna take me from here on out. The future is looming ahead of me and soon enough I'll have to learn how to take care of myself. Sure I know how to take care of myself but I'll be alone. I'm not used to being alone alone. I always have family or friends close by me but in Pittsburgh, I'll be on my own. In the city. I know I'm smart and all but I can readily admit I am way more fragile then my older sister (who went all the way to Lousiana); can I really handle all that? I'm afraid of the dark, terrified of spiders, and I have absolutely no idea how to drive. I don't know what insurance I have, my SSN off hte top of my head, and I don't know anyone's number except my grandmothers without a cell phone.

I'm screwed aren't I? *heavy sigh*

P.S I haven't written all I wanted but I have to go now. Sweetheart's dance tomorrow, See yallz later! =)

Trust me, the college life in dorms is anything but lonely. You are going to be partying to hard to notice that you arent at home. How i wish I could have done that.

Where does your sister go?

I'm sure you'll be fine. You seem like a pretty nice person and good people flock to good people. (Most of the time)
