If anyone is actually reading this, I'm giving you a week to save whatever posts of mine you're particularly attached to. Because I'm about to do some serious cleaning house. I'm not about to switch accounts again and I don't want to avoid this account anymore because of triggers.

Holy shit, people: Nickelodeon made a sequel to Voltron. When did this happen and why wasn't I informed?

I choose not to end.

Not "if I have a choice." For all my thoughts on death, I choose.

I choose.

Karmic cycle

If all things have souls, the karmic cycle is the thing that makes the most sense. We have to become more complex in order to accommodate what we've learned. A dog has a personality, but it can't create art. The more aware a dog is, the higher up it goes next time around. We all could have started as bacteria or even viruses our first time around.

Are we the stewards of our beloved pets? Are we supposed to help them along on their spiritual path since we're further along in thought and deed?

I'm more and more aware of the conflicting nature of my entries. If read in one go, I feel like anyone reading this will react the same way I did while reading Marcus Aurelius' "Meditations."

Am I God to my cells?

I've heard that we're entirely new people every seven years due to cells being replaced. Yet I retain my memories from years ago and can still experience the emotions I felt back then when I think of those things. I still remain myself. We're more than our cells.

No wonder so many people believe in Christianity. It's comforting to have an all-knowing parental figure out there who will take care of everything for you and allow you to be a child again. It's a wonderful idea. But no one stops and thinks what it's like for the god in question to have to constantly be the responsible one. So when do we grow up and start taking care of ourselves?

When I was in high school, someone I was friends with told me I was doing a lot better recently. That I was opening up more. That made me mad. What was wrong with the way I was before? I had liked myself.

People don't open up for a reason. They were trying to force me to open up because they thought they were doing me a service. But if you open up without trusting the person you're opening up to, it just makes you feel sick inside.

Do each of my individual atoms have souls? Would that be fair? Will "I" split into billions upon billions of tiny souls? Or is it a whole that is still "me" and still remembers what each cell felt, like a phantom limb?

At some point I started to be afraid of knowledge. When did this happen?
