A bit of my thoughts about life in general and things that keep it worth living...

La mort est un processus rectiligne...

Found that in a french novel. It means "death is a straight process". Somehow, it made me wonder about the way life goes because at first, it seems absurd, isn't it? The two adjectives are contradictary at the very least.

Process implies series of actions that will produce a result. Since there are so many actions you could choose during the course of your life, so many turns you could take in that path, it doesn't make a real sense that a process could be straight, right?

Or does it?

Something straight is direct. It goes to one direction and it goes fast, like a bullet from the barrel to the point of impact. It doesn't turn, it doesn't make any choices, it doesn't think... it goes straight.

So how you correlate those two together?

In life, we make choices indeed, we think about any possibilities, we balance the pros and cons. In short, we try to live our life according to our desire. We build a house, create an environment that we believe is good for us, to put it bluntly, we try to build our own world. Everything necessary to make you believe that you live your own life...

But then again, there is death. Ahhhh, the surest thing in life is that you will die someday, somewhen. In 50 years, 5 years, 5 weeks, 5 days, 5 hours, 5 minutes and even 5 seconds from now. This is where the two adjectives make sense.

Your whole life is an accumulation of choices, turns and thoughts. you could always choose your path, that is what make us differ from animal... the knowledge that you can choose your life the way you want it to be. But in the end, you will face death no matter what.

"Death is a straight process". Do whatever you want in life, fill your mind with fireworks of joy, see the world from different angles.

So you won't regret it.

"Quand la fin est devant moi, donnez-moi la meilleure place pour la regarder dans les yeux et lui dire, 'tu es la seule chose que je n'ai pas vue'".
