i believe the universe was sneezed out the nose of the great green arkleseizure, and i live in constant fear that the coming of the great white handkerchief will be upon us tomorrow, or at least soon.
#in all reality and practicallity i choose to worship the great deity called humanity#which is also the dumbest and most self-destructive deity of all#but also the most wonderful force aside from the forces of nature itself#we can bend the elements to our will and bounce back from the most catastrophic of disasters#we can make leaves that are better at making energy than real leaves on the real trees#we greet each other by wrapping our arms around each other#we like to keep small animals in our homes and we like to talk to them despite the fact they can’t understand#we form emotional bonds with inaminate objects#we have developed complex and typically expensive ways of educating our young so that future generations may be smarter and better than ours#we throw parties when our friends (friends! people we like! it’s so cool!) do neat stuff#like find an acceptable mate#or produce young#or survive another year#we are the products of billions of years of pruning and picking and breeding and living and dying#it has taken trillions of life forms to exist just for us to be here right now#we are filled with a billion neat little living beings that help us live our day to day lives#we are made out of tiny little boxes that work together to move us and feed us and make us think in a wonderful analog of society#we and all of our component parts have invented telescopes and eyeglasses#and literature and jokes#puns! we made puns all by our lonesome!#and we’ve made cars and trains and we’ve tamed animals and invented saddles and automatic milkers to make the animals more useful#we’ve been to the moon and built robots that live on other planets!#we the humans and every second that has lead us the humans to being human#we the humans have made music and weapons and the internet#and it’s so fantastic to think that we didn’t even need help to do it#we don’t need daddy up in the sky holding our hand while we reach for the stars#we can do it ourselves
