Life only holds value when it's threatened. The child understands this value innately and therefore covets a toy most which is coveted by another child. Technology threatens to overcome the threat of death and thus makes life meaningless. The woman covets the man who is coveted by woman.
Your death was implicit in your birth. A choice the man makes is to submit or to die but when you realize that all ends in death there is really no choice. There is only a desperate clinging to the present moment in the hopes that this time you will be the one to defy all and be immortal. All cowards believe they will live forever. All fear is based on the fear of death. You will die. Celebrate it for it gives you strength, it allows you to experience the best of life.
"My strength is not in steel and fire, that is what the parasites will never understand. A season for all things! A time to live and a time to die, a time to build... and a time to destroy!" It is time to destroy this artifice and build something new from its ashes.
Though I recognize the power that morality wields over others it only has power which the individual submits to. Natural law dictates that whatever can be done will be done. There is no standard of morality. God is dead. At best we can try and extrapolate what can best fulfill this moment and this experience. What can suffice for me. No thought of the good of others. That is not the natural way. Any claims to the opposite are bunk. They're self-serving arguments of a control freak, those that fear death, those which place no value on life beyond their own existence.
We are only defined by morality only as we allow ourselves to be. More properly, to describe natural law as anything other than a technical manual for the operation of our species is erroneous. We will do what is best for ourselves and there will never be an argument which can penetrate this logic nor should there be for our quest is knowledge and only by putting off the artifice of morality can we know what is possible. Only through defiance to god can we know what is and what isn't god. What is possible is what is not impossible.
I believe in causality. I believe that one event flows into another and that each is born on the tides of this chain stretched back into infinity. I do not believe in flaws or mistakes. I do not believe in wrong or right doing any more than I believe in wrong or right calculus.
