The world needs a good hard cleansing, and is clearly going to get it real soon so that's not a concern of mine. I gave up on saving the proverbial world a while back when it became clear that we lack the collective will to succeed and just decided not to have kids instead so I can relax and maybe even enjoy the show.
I came up with an answer to what Alan Watts was apparently assuming was a rhetorical question he liked to ask: "Is life serious?"
He made a series of compelling points to establish that no, it's not 'serious' in the commonly-understood sense of the term. While watching the very entertaining clip of that talk that was animated by the guys who created South Park, it occurred to me that while "life" might not be serious in the grand scheme of things, I can think of at least one aspect of it that is very serious indeed. Or at least it's something that's serious to me and I am unable to see it otherwise, and I'm talking about the suffering of the innocent.
But even if I were somehow able to close that Eye and get some rest for a minute, those whose suffering I can See get no such respite, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I can't get any either.
