2013. What will it come to mean to us? Life, both our individual lives and our collective life as a species, moves along way too fast to dare think about it. It’s hard not to be a pessimist when the end of life appears, for all that we fantasize otherwise, to be death, pure and simple: gone, that’s. And we kind of know that’s true for our species, too. We have a life span. And we are acutely conscious of the decay we see along with the growth. Pointless to be obsessed by it, I suppose.
