Split The Difference

Up or Down, Right or Wrong

Inspired by Frederick the Great (1712-1786) quote, "All religions must be tolerated... for... every man must get to heaven his own way." The titled responsion adds to this concept of heaven that really, in my opinion, is a personal purgatory.

Set free through the virtuous actions of your habitual behaviour, the actions that you act out and the experience make up your identity forme your future self. Heaven is a manifestation of this cycle. Rinse (spindles) eat (expel), repeat (myelinate). Friendship is optional but highly recommended.

Forward and Backward in Time (and Biology)

Inspired by Søren Kierkegaard's (1813-1855) quote, "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced". The titled responsion is referring to the timeline and slicing of perception that we experience through time. Biology is through in for good measure on an evolutionary time scale.

We All Remember Things Differently

Inspired by Gabriel García Márquez's (1927-2014) quote, "Everything that goes into my mouth seems to make me fat, everything that comes out of my mouth embarrasses me." The titled responsion is called Gabriel out on his self-depreciation in a playful way. Are you kidding me? What comes out of your mouth, more specifically your writing is remarkable.

Remembering Márquez as a towering literary figure with a solid base is nourishing to all that consume his books. How's that for splitting the difference? If I side on the altruistic side just blame it on game theory, by far it's the most efficient for the survival of our species.
