Man has been obsessed with immortality since the beginning of time. He cropped up one philosophy after another, looked upon the supernatural and extraterrestrial, and concerned himself with clones, time machines and fountains of youth.. all to no avail.
Then there’s those of us who think that soon after his fifteen minutes of fame is over, when his prime has passed; that he will wither under the earth just as mother nature deemed it be. I always say we are symbiotic, we are animals just the same – the most savage of all. And I accept it as such (now kill all those cows coz I love steak!)
Still, there’s a bit of that darn anachronistic spirit in all of us. That which wants to be immortal through influence, or through the thoughts of others – Homer made up stories, the Pharoahs built the pyramids, Einstein sported a geeky haircut, Sam Milby became straight and Happyslip made a video blog.
This is how we will forever remember them… and that, my friends, is immortality! (ok, maybe except Sam Milby)
This is the point where I’m supposed to say “Now, watch my videos!” And now that I’ve said that, let’s move on to more sensible things.
