Life The Big Idea
posted by December 14 at 10:49 AMon
The point made in the conclusion of this short essay, which was posted two years ago by Andrey Summers (Dan Paulus sent me a link to it yesterday), can be applied to all of life, the entire universe, to everything there ever was and will be.
To be a Star Wars fan, one must possess the ability to see a million different failures and downfalls, and then somehow assemble them into a greater picture of perfection. Every true Star Wars fan is a Luke Skywalker, looking at his twisted, evil father, and somehow seeing good.The idea of existence is great, but everything that makes existence possible is wrong. Without an idea, a counter thought, a concept of how things ought to be, you can not love this world we live and die in.
…We hate everything about Star Wars.
But the idea of Star Wars…the idea we love.
