superseding death

Life begets death, an impassable obstacle that will surely devour one whole. Impending doom.

Once one makes this certainty realised to themselves, what becomes useful in life- needed, wanted, worth the foreshadowing?

What makes actions/objects pointless, what dictates this factor in a limited life?

What becomes important- what makes me worthwhile in existence?

All that used to matter to me would be happiness in others, hope, love, knowledge, and I lost that. For months, years, I lost everything, gave into the tyranny, the melancholy. My mind became intertwined in a syrian darkness, a spiralling abyss seemingly inescapable.
You showed me life through your literacy, in a period less than 10 minutes long you showed me why life wasn’t made pointless through death and depression. You told me what was worth the destruction dooming us all, told me what could be valued more than death, multiple factors superseding death, hope. All I had was one thing to cling to, now I have several.
You saved me, and I could never tell you.

The creation of Ideas

It’s said that humans can’t create an idea without inspiration, so who created the idea of man?

I am thankful for this blessing that has no shape, it grows in us all and it can as with all things be used for evil and goodness of man. Though, remember that when used for the harm of man, it will always at some point in time be superseded by the goodness in the idea itself.

An idea supervises its own territory, by following the path of righteousness given by the first original creator. God.

In many ways man himself is the resemblance to an idea, he/she can divide, conquer as well as unite and defend.

PS: If you are wondering on how to kill an idea though, then start use PowerPoint and do like this guy.

I wish I could tell you, the way I think of you, so highly, brilliantly.
The way you radiate through my mind, shining beyond reason, making me feel this way, an endless feeling unlike anything I’ve known.
I feel so strange, abnormal, whenever you’re around, even when I talk to you online- nothing compares, my logic is thrown into chaos, confusion, replaced by a worthless hope, wishing that you felt the same way about me.
The pointlessness of that hope is more than disappointing.

I miss you more than you would know, holding out for the time I next see you- which who knows when will be- you might be one of the only ones to read this, if you take the time to care about a louse like me- an idiot, loser, nerd…. but you probably wouldn’t realise what you mean to me- you’re  the only person I’d show everything to. Everything. Even though you could never trust me the same way…

VENTUS. UGH

why do people characterize him as innocent and unaware all the time like yes he is SOMETIMES but then SOMETIMES HE’S CHEEKY AND SASSY AND JUST. A BIT OF A LITTLE SHIT SOMETIMES AND HE /KNOWS/ IT I MEAN HONESTLY HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS SAYING WHEN HE DROPPED THOSE SICK BURNS

…that is not how Christianity works. When it tells you to feed the hungry, it does not give you lessons in cookery. When it tells you to read the Scriptures it does not give you lessons in Hebrew and Greek, or even in English grammar. it was never intended to replace or supersede the ordinary human arts and sciences: it is rather a director which will set them all to the right jobs, and a source of energy which will give them all new life, if only they will put themselves at its disposal.

There’s so much I want to talk about with ALL OF THIS that I’ve been functionally hopping from one foot to the other for like ten minutes trying to figure out how to best do it all.

Because holy crap.

Rei and Minako in these musicals will be THE END OF EVERYTHING. Nothing will ever supersede Rei and Usagi’s relationship for me, it’s one of my favourites in absolutely anything ever. But every glimpse of Rei and Minako, I can just happily roll around in it for days. Their dynamic in every incarnation I’ve seen is absolutely fascinating to me (and I’ve yet to read the manga, and barely graze the surface of PGSM). I love how effortlessly it shifts from this playful antagonistic trolling to something with layers of understanding and compatibility and acceptance that I don’t think even they quite realize.

Like here. Usagi is all upset that Rei took over, which is understandable, but seriously Usagi, kind of not cool. Rei actually has the moral high ground here, and in traditional Rei fashion, she is going to plant her feet on it and budge exactly no inches.

Minako agrees with Rei on this, she’s been nodding along and completely in support of Rei having had to take over. But still, REALITY CHECK ON AISLE HINO. Minako can’t resist digging in at Rei. "Sure sure, you ‘had’ to do it, but you fool nobody here, and no way in hell I’m allowing you to pretend otherwise."

Which you might expect Rei to get all pissy about, but instead, THIS HAPPENS.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO LOVE HERE

The way Rei is STRUTTING as she’s walking away from Usagi. SHE IS SO FULL OF HERSELF RIGHT NOW, SO SMUG AND SELF-SATISFIED. LOOK AT THIS SHIT.

Enjoy bonus Usagi’s Face, because I assure you that I am.

The fact that this is when Minako decides that Rei cannot be allowed to continue in such a manner. Rei needs a foil, that’s something Minako GETS, and she’s just the person to do it. So she comes at Rei, ready to deflate her a bit, but does it in the most adorably playful yet completely serious way possible.

I love how Minako and Rei have their own entirely unique way of interacting. I love when relationships are each special and built on their own personalities and dynamics. THIS IS WHERE I LIVE, THIS IS MY EVERYTHING.

Now Rei could get pissy, but instead she plays the game right back at Minako and fucking HIP CHECKS HER. Again, playfully, but again with a layer of seriousness, manifesting in such force that she shoves Minako halfway across the stage. Rei seizes the moment back again, by allowing herself to be the butt of the joke, but on HER terms.

BUT WAIT BECAUSE THERE COULD BE MORE. Because it could also be that Minako’s exaggerating Rei’s response, which means that Rei’s seizing it back, BUT ALSO THAT MINAKO’S LETTING HER HAVE IT. So the whole thing becomes:

"I am awesome and beyond reproach for my awesomeness!"
"Yeah you’re pretty great, but dial it back a bit, yeah?"
"Okay, okay. I’m awesome, and also kind of ridiculous."
"Damn straight you are."

AND I’M STILL NOT DONE

Because while this is going on, let’s look at Ami and Mako.

I AM GOING TO FLAIL ALL OVER AGAIN

REINITIALIZE FLAIL SEQUENCE

Let’s start with Ami. She’s watching the exchange between Rei and Minako, and she looks a little nervous. Rei’s temper is without question, and also without question is how MInako doesn’t really give a shit about it. Things could potentially get messy, and Ami’s not sure how it’s going to go. But the second that Rei bounces Minako away, Ami laughs. And it’s the most adorable laugh (BECAUSE CAN YOU DO ANYTHING THAT IS NOT ADORABLE NO I DON’T THINK YOU CAN), because it just kind of pops out of her. Watch her face, it’s sincerely precious.

MAKO THOUGH

MAKO IS THE BEST

She spends the entire time watching Rei and Minako, and her head is tilted to the side, and love is pouring off of her. Mako’s not worried at all. She has no time for that. Minako’s barely started, and Mako’s already amused and chuckling to herself. I wrote in a ‘fic once, “it was The Rei and Minako Comedy Hour, and damn if that wasn’t one of Mako’s favourite shows”. THANK YOU FOR BEING THE EMBODIMENT OF EXACTLY THAT.

But then Rei does her thing and Mako not only laughs (the most amazing laugh ever, your smile is perfect and SO RUDE), but look at how she whirls around to share it with Ami. “DID YOU SEE REI??” Mako’s saying, and Ami looks at Mako like “OMG I KNOW”. (Also your height difference should be illegal.)

SECONDS. This moment lasts SECONDS.

And in those seconds, there is so, so, SO much love and affection and familiarity and genuine enjoyment and understanding of each other happening here. They are at opposite ends of the stage, but the girls’ relationships are bright and thriving and they bind them together in everything they do.

Look at this. Look at all this. The care, love, and understanding that the creators and performers have for these musicals, that they build into every detail, is absolutely everything I could ever want.

Now, before I finally post this, I have one more gift for you.

You’re welcome.

"The basic principle of constructor theory is that all fundamental laws of nature are expressible entirely in terms of statements of which tasks (i.e. classes of physical transformations) are possible and which are impossible, and why. This is a new mode of explanation, intended to supersede the prevailing conception of fundamental physics which seeks to explain the world in terms of its state (describing everything that is there) and laws of motion (describing how the everything changes with time). By regarding counter-factuals (‘X is possible’ or ‘X is impossible’) as first-class, exact statements, constructor theory brings all sorts of interesting fields, currently regarded as inherently approximative, potentially into fundamental physics. These include the theories of information, knowledge, thermodynamics, life, and of course the universal constructor."
