If you survived the first time, you're only interest in this exploit now, is to tell everybody what you've done.

In 1879 Henry George put it well:

“The fact is that the work which improves the condition of mankind, the work which extends knowledge and increases power and enriches literature, and elevates thought, is not done to secure a living. It is not the work of slaves, driven to their task either by the lash of a master or by animal necessities. It is the work of men who perform it for their own sake, and not that they may get more to eat or drink, or wear, or display. In a state of society where want is abolished, work of this sort could be enormously increased.”
I dream, therefore I am.

Personally, I would be delighted if there were a life after death, especially if it permitted me to continue to learn about this world and others, if it gave me a chance to discover how history turns out. Carl Sagan :thinking:

But the future is now, future breakfast...future lunch...future dinner...
future bed time, what more do people want, then start again the next day
see that wasn’t hard at all.
See the only future anyone has is from second to second because there is no guarantee beyond that, now if that scares you all get used to it because that
has been your life from birth. cackle cackle?? hark whats that sound cackle why
its buck the Gympie bandit. :wqoohoo :wqoohoo

Arabic

If you are a pessimist you will curse the wind

Optimist , you will hope for the wind to stop

Realist, you will adjust your canvas

“Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed. In the second, it is opposed. In the third, it is regarded as self evident.”
