04:16 am - i can't wait til i can hate you tonight
so i am in the throes of working out a philosophy which is amoral (as opposed to immoral). basically, the idea that how someone chooses to respond to any set of circumstances is the only way they could have responded. because of their upbringing and personal morality and general ideas of life and anything that may be on their mind, their friends and parents and life up to that moment, the way they choose to act is the only choice that thier essence at that moment would decide upon. this isn't like fate, because you still are free to choose what you will, but an omnicient being judging just from your personality and life up to that moment could decisively say what you will choose (this is part of why i dont believe in omnicient beings, and even moreso the morality of their punishing/rewarding us for our choices). so i suppose an omnicient being would see our lives in much the same way someone who saw the future would. but luckily, from our limited vantage points, we are still all free to choose and do as we please according to our whims
this is rather unwieldy for day-to-day life, and only mildy comforting or explanatory (tho i only mildly believe it as yet, so that may follow), but it has some interesting implications. i think so anyway. any thoughts?
also i suppose chaos could cause problems for this idea. i don't know how much the jiggling quarks in our brains affect our decisions

sweet fucka! the auto body place says my car might be done by the end of the week. none of this waiting a month bullshit like henrys for them, oh no! :D

3 concepts which i think are of very dubious value and should probably be disposed of:
morality
justice
honor
anyone want to defend them? or agree with me?

sometimes my absurd notions put me into absurd situations

no no, not the justice/legal system, which is handydandy. i mean actual justice, the concept. 'getting your just deserts' style justice. punishment for a crime justice. i don't see any appreciable difference between that and revenge, other than the involvement of a 3rd party. it accomplishes nothing, and only encourages people intent on committing crimes to be trickier about it. there is little rehabilitation, and if anything a lot of criminals become more criminal. whereas people in for crimes of passion, or need, just suffer for awhile and go home.
