Ah, how true! A cartoon can be worth a thousand books. “To be continued” at the end of our works may be more appropriate than “the end.” Aristotle said God is the prime mover and the first cause and what he does eternally is to think about his own thoughts. Sounds a bit narcissistic and boring but there it is. We however are creatures within time and space and do indeed get tired even of what we love to do best. Even Michelangelo had to conclude his Sistine ceiling and to the persistent question of the Pope “when will you conclude” he would answer “when I am finished.” Eventually he finished but that story on that ceiling beginning with the drunkenness of Noah proclaims that in the beginning there is the end and in the end there is the beginning and the story is everlasting even if its interpretation changes in time.

P.S. To which as proclaimed "advisor to the Pope" havint the insidee scoop, I can now proclaim that even Popes get tired and grow old and even resign as will happen quite soon. Indeed, the story is everlasting but it has chapters...and penultimate conclusions, and the Sistine Ceiling will be witnessing one such penultimate conclusion quite soon...You heard it first in Ovi.

Is it possible for One to Live Life to the Exclusion of Conclusions ?


Emanuel Paparella2013-02-12 11:47:29
It all depends whether or not one includes, or vice versa excludes, a deterministic necessary conclusion devoid of choice, or a freely chosen conclusion. Socrates lived his life well as the “examined life” and concluded it as a hero, albeit condemned to death. He escaped the grip of corruption. His executioners lived the mindless unexamined life and died as villains in the relentless grip of corruption, the way they lived.
