  1. what song is the background music reminding me of? i can’t figure it out and it’s driving me nuts

  2. you’re reading shopenhauer wrong….. je’s always emphasising how the uniqueness of a human’s fulfillment (as a representation) is greater or more complete then just any other thing because of the multitude of senses and intelligence he/she posseses. this is why human existance is ultimatly the saddest: it is to a greater degree the representation of will (which is a singular, not a plural) and can so mimic will to a greater degree – in essence remaining fundamentally unfulfilled. as far as i understand, it was nietzsche who talked about the will being particular to each being.

  3. the comment about radical empathy made me think of how we feel about plants which kinda of straddle a line, being alive but not animate. i have never once felt bad for eating a plant, but would feel bad if a house plant died.
