Memory

No new material today.  This musing first appeared on my tumblr account.

By ignoring the moral value of another’s actions I am free to reevaluate their worth on a continuous basis.  I am free of such emotional or moral memory.

What this means is that because I could care less about morality in general, not to say that I do not know moral from immoral, that I evaluate people in the present.  I could care less if you were at church every Sunday and saved orphans from a fire years ago.  I could care less if you robbed a bank and stabbed a guy a few weeks ago.  I evaluate you in the present.

I’m no idiot, however.  I can gauge whether you are useful to me or not in the present.  If I sense that you are about to get your stab on, I’m not going to stick around.  What I am saying, however, is that your past actions do not cause me to inherently fear or elevate you in any way.  I’m essentially performing a calculation, at all times, of whether you benefit me.  I am impartial to your history.

This means that I can be the friend when others won’t because I could care less of your immoral past.  It also means I won’t be swindled by the actual thief whose aura of morality, because they saved those orphans, has eclipsed their actual being and true proclivities.  I watch, I learn.  I learn, I react.  I react, I win.  At all times, the aura or shadow of the resource means nothing.  This can benefit both of us

    I’ve been stalking your blog/ftumblr for a few days. I must say that I’ve never found someone else that I can relate as much as you.
    I like the way you see the world because we pretty much have the same view.
    I think that’s pretty interesting.
    And have a question for you? My therapist made it yesterday: If you we’re driving and crossed the red sign, hitting another car with a mother and child inside and you killed then in the process. What would you feel?

    I wasn’t able to answer this for some reason. That’s not a practical question. I don’t drive and I think the whole scene is a unnecessary risk. I hate taking unnecessary risks(kind of). And I never hurt someone, accidentally. I think I’d probably get angry at myself for being stupid and doing something that will get me arrested.
    I don’t know if you already talked about something like that before, but I’m curious about accidentally hurting unknown innocent people.
