The Oscars are a big catalog of movies that I need to watch.
Thank you & I hope so…I’ve got nothing to fall back on!
Yes, pretty much everything is on my Facebook, and should be viewable to everybody. If not, let me know and I’ll fix it.
The most important thing I learned on Tralfamadore was that when a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past, so it is very silly for people to cry at his funeral. All moments, past, present, and future, always have existed, always will exist. The Tralfamadorians can look at all the different moments just the way we can look at a stretch of the Rocky Mountains, for instance. They can see how permanent all the moments are, and they can look at any moment that interests them. It is just an illusion we have here on Earth that one moment follows another one, like beads on a string, and that once a moment is gone it is gone forever.
“When a Tralfamadorian sees a corpse, all he thinks is that the dead person is in bad condition in that particular moment, but that same person is just fine in plenty of other moments. Now, when I myself hear somebody is dead, I simply shrug and say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is ‘So it goes.’” —Slaughterhouse-five, Kurt Vonnegut (via hellogoodbai)
Well, thank you. I’ll probably still be getting more of both eventually, though. ;P
