Sharing My World 05-08-2019

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. Boy, this is a cheerful set of questions this week!

Does life have a reason (meaning)?
It does to me! So that’s good. In the wider sense, who knows? This question is above my pay grade!

Will the world come to an end by human hands (man’s actions)?
Man’s presence on the world, maybe. I imagine that the world itself will recover from whatever we manage to do to it, in time.

The world itself will end when the sun runs out of fuel. Or when the M’Gak’Nar turn up from Tau Cygnus Alpha IV with their planet-killing missile and blow it to bits.

Will stricter laws make a better world? Would less strict law make it better?
Until people learn right from wrong, stricter laws unfortunately. Too many people ignore their conscience in favour of what they want.

If death is inevitable, why bother doing anything?
Because doing nothing would be really boring.

Are thoughts and prayers useful or a sop for people who wish to pay respect but interact through a virtual venue? Yea or nay – please explain your viewpoint (without rancour) if you would.
Prayers are useful if they help the person praying.

I find thoughts useful. Otherwise I’d just be sitting around in a mindless daze until I died of dehydration and malnutrition.

    I think all of the questions are above my pay grade since they don’t pay me to blog…

    Great response, but I too worry about the M’Gak’Nar!

    These are quite the questions!
    You’re right about the plant’s ability to recover. You should see the once-paved road from here to Tessier. The earth is busily reclaiming it as we speak.

    I’d say prayers are useful if they connect with the Source of help, otherwise they can become a source of self-delusion. Thoughts, as you mentioned, are very helpful. I’d hate to see you as a mindless starving creature. 😉

    Rereading the question though, I guess she means like when we say, “Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of trial…” If it helps, my thoughts are with you today, Ali, as you enjoy your day off.

    Cheerful, indeed!
    I’m beginning to think some of the humans on this planet are in league with M’Gak’Nar!

    Thanks Drailman for Sharing Your World! Yes, I try to mix things up, with questionable success. And if E.S. wants to get paid? He’ll have to find another tree. My tree is devoid of monetary excess (or even monetary full stop). 😛

      Wouldn’t it be nice if we all got paid per post? 🙂

    “It is to me”… that’s all you need. All I have to say nihilistic pessimists is that I’m sorry their lives suck, my life is quite meaningful. The same goes for the fourth point, really. Life is a lot more interesting doing stuff.
