I don’t like the idea of taking life too seriously. If I was in a situation in which I had to eat human carcasses for survival, I don’t think I would. I think I’d just nope right outta life. If pushed passed a particular point, I’d just say “Nah I’m good, we’re done here.”
I’m not much of a fighter. I never see the point of struggling to live just a little bit longer. I’m going to die, so what’s the difference whether it’s now or later. What reward results from longevity? That’s not to say I seek my own demise. On the contrary, I’m very cautions about everything I do and consume.
I like forgiveness as it shows a lightheartedness towards life. You did that? So what, let’s move on. I don’t like when people take their roles too seriously and act all somber and dutiful. I find it weird and artificial. We’re just goop-filled sacks crawling around a rock circling a gigantic fire-ball after all.
Actors know they’re acting. As a people we need to know this is merely a game of pretend, not serious business. We can play, but only to the point where it remains fun for all. When someone gets hurt we have to tend to their pain then moderate our horseplay so as to prevent further injuries.
