General Which to Choose by AKidWithAName 12/31/2017 written by AKidWithAName 12/31/2017 Do I trust the abusive brain that wishes me alive, or do I trust the loving body that allows me to die? 5 comments 0 Email Related posts avoidant 2/4/2023 Worth sticking around to see the end of... 2/3/2023 Hopelessly Depressed 2/3/2023 anyone can be replaced or unnecessary 2/3/2023 Intelligence is an aberration 2/3/2023 its over 2/3/2023 When you hit Rock Bottom 2/3/2023 Ooh this day 2/3/2023 poor people are always judged for being poor 2/3/2023 2/3/2023 5 comments Cordless 12/31/2017 - 8:54 am In a way, bodies and minds are both categories at the same time. Mind: capable of fearing/avoiding death Mind: capable of suffering and being suicidal Body: sometimes capable of surviving severe trauma Body: sometimes capable of instant death via heart attack or stroke. So I guess we can trust both, while simultaneously treating both with caution. I realize that didn’t really answer your question, but it’s still interesting to think about. 🙂 Log in to Reply AKidWithAName 12/31/2017 - 11:22 pm I like that analysis. It might have provided more of an answer than you give yourself credit for. Thanks, man.

Like…I have a fingernail, knuckles, skin but it’s all a finger. I have five fingers, but it’s really a hand. blah blah blah.

All are necessary together to create a finger, but they’re all separate. The muscle can tear, but you still have a finger. The bone can break, the finger is still there. The flesh can tear, but the finger remains. The question is, what is more important to protect? One of them is inevitably going to be destroyed, but if there is no skin, the finger is useless. Same goes for muscle or bone. They are separate, but they work together for the same thing. They are destroyed individually by different things. The question is what can I allow to break while I fox myself. Log in to Reply a1957 12/31/2017 - 1:05 pm Damn good question. I can’t answer it. But it is a brilliant question. You are right. The body will die, sooner or later, and when it does our brain can no longer sustain the present torment, yet that very same brain pleads for us to live on almost irregardless of the suffering of mind or body. What a conundrum.
