I remember it hurts, looking at her hurts…

There are two types of people: hopeless romantics and realists. A hopeless romantic is one who gets convinced that it is destiny putting him/ her with a particular someone; while a realist just sees that face, and just packs the other person in every other one he has seen before. (Stuck in Love)

A hopeless romantic can easily get hurt, and well, maybe…. Well, I used to be towards the romantic side but well… yes, reality does check in. It is definitely a lesson learned. Was going to say the more beautiful a memory is, the more painful it is to leave. This is pretty much true, but well, life is only meaningful when you can convince yourself that it is.

Anyway, I mean, life is a journey, and we are all on this ride. Moving on is a compulsory process. No one can be with you forever. The truth is, we come to this world alone, and we leave this world exactly the same way. But all I would say, is that ‘You were that pure, lovely, little apple of my eyes’, and that pureness, and loveliness shalt never fade.

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
(Shakespeare, Sonnet 18)

Dreams for Immortality

With nowadays fast-paced technology, human is probably quite closed to reach immortality. Scientists have already done a lot to help human reach immortality, and they expect within the next 30 years, they will have accomplished their goal.

From an extremely long time ago, immortality has already been one of the biggest dreams of human, and it seems pretty awesome as well. We can also see immortality as a part of the evolution process of human: we grow to our best form, and the process of aging slows down (or even stops) so we can be at our top form for a long time, and it qualifies ‘the fittest survives’ theory. With eternal life, it’s likely that we are guaranteed the best life as we get to do everything we want.

Although it’s good for an individual, when all people on Earth reached immortality, it could be problematic. Overcrowding has already been a problem on Earth at the moment. Some people will probably have to evolve with fins and gills as they will have to live in the water before human can migrate to another planet (Maybe they’d even need to apply for visas for other planet?) In terms of work, with immortality, the retirement age will probably have to rise to thousands years old. Well, it may be fine if you have a relaxing job; but some might have to flip burgers in McDonald’s literally for centuries. With the 50% of global wealth belonging to 1% of people, the rich will still get richer, and the poor poorer. The whole society will also be unsafe, because even 30-year sentence will not be useful against criminals anymore, and they will literally do anything they want!

Well, immortality is probably a good thing to develop, but I think it’s nothing much better than having a meaningful and successful life. It’s probably better to have someone admiring your work, than living a life without anyone noticing. In this world, wealth is like the symbol of the value of a person. Not saying money is everything, but without money we cannot have anything. And in nowadays world, there are only three proper ways to get rich: 1) Inherit money from a posh family (Not for me) 2) Investment (in a sensible way) 3) Start a business/ work at the manager level at least. Options 2 and 3 are still applicable to me, so, apart from having to do well at university and designing my future path, I’d start learning about investment. You never know, maybe this crazy little blogger here can become the next Buffett!
