What a pretty sunrise this morning.


Don't ask why I was contemplating this, because I blame it on boredom-while-driving. There's a scene at the end of the Transformers movie that had me and at least one other person on my flist going 'Erm.. what?'

Eh, I think my drive to work is too long.

It would seem LJ is a little constipated today - I am not getting email notificaitions of responses. I DID get one for an upcoming birthday, though. Must be a different server or something (or my settings got changed for me, I suppose.)

I am in the oddest headspace right now

If the soul and the 'I' are separate, why should the 'I' care what happens to the soul? And why should the soul be punished or rewarded for the doings of the 'I'?


But if the soul and the 'I' are the same, what has happened to the soul in the case of complete memory loss? Or radical personality change due to brain damage?


Then there's this: The 'I' that exists in this body right now is not precisely the same 'I' that existed in it* a year ago, or 10 years ago, or 35 year ago.

(*keeping in mind that the body itself has turnover - the very atoms that comprise it are in constant flux. The body that exists now is not the same body that existed a year ago, either. And yet, it is - my memory tells me there has been an existing, recognizable body for a continuing awareness to occupy for more than 3 decades now.)



These thoughts, they go nowhere, and yet, they keep coming back.

Note to self: braids at either ear looks just as dorky on me as they did the last time I tried this. Yes, yes, I know, it looks really good on other people, but that's OTHER PEOPLE. Not me.




But, gosh darn it, they are comfy while driving.











So, why did I have to run into someone I knew........ (radcliffe it was the sweet minstral from the Spanish Court year at fair, but we were at one of the rest-stop McDonalds and neither of us really had time to chat.)
