existential angst particles with?


god I want to read so much

it's also pathetic how I'm reading so much, but all I'm learning about is about arbitrary social conventions that are useless for the vast majority of particles. social conventions that are useless for the vast majority of parallel universes as well. it hurts. history is such social convention. as with a lot of other things. like models and programming, and the names and symbols you give to mathematical formulations

and it's all going to end up like this


it's pathetic.
no return

when you're 15, you're halfway to 30, which is in turn halfway to 60, halfway to 120
when you're 20, you're halfway to 40, which is in turn halfway to 80, halfway to 160

and i compulsively check the wikipedia recent deaths article. a lot of people who were born OMG in 1918/1919 are now nearing 90 years of age. When I was born they were only nearing 70 years of age. blahh

and it's pathetic too, i'm at the peak of my mental and physical performance now and it could be all squandered.


of course it wouldn't be squandered if there was actually an INTERESTING computer game that didn't make so many oversimplifications. a computer game that's actually complex. maybe it could be run on parallel processing, and then you would log onto the world and be a small character. yes massively multiplayer. but NOT those stupid mmorpgd

    Yes, but the resulting energy would be enormous. Human emotion is more powerful than nuclear fusion. :p

    it's probably better to live your life right now while you can rather than wasting it thinking about when you're going to die
    or spend it doing anti-aging research :D but that'd probably mean the government would kill us all at age 80 or something to prevent overpopulation

    hm, "interesting" computer games.
    have you seen "real lives?" it's supposed to model the world based on current demographics. but it doesn't tell you anything really interesting.
    and of course there's lots of very complex single player games that can be made multiplayer if there are lots of people standing around you kibitzing.
    *cough* nethack *cough*

    or you could go live in the real world, which is infinitely more complex than a computer game will ever be

    haha yes - I've heard of "real lives" - but yeah - it's really little more than a random number generator that just lands on interesting numbers. ^_^

    I'm fine now, I just had a bout of angst earlier today. :p hm, the real world consists of little more than my room so I'd get most stimulation off the computer. ^_^
