People love talking about "immortality" and "divine beings," but this - this is the equivalent of modern transcendence. If you can do this, you've essentially "won." You have risen above the petty qualms and quibbles of contemporary life. You are truly a warrior of the post-postmodern era.
If you've ever played any video game, then at some point, you've asked yourself: "How does this affect my future in any meaningful way?" Answer: It doesn't. It might actually be pretty harmfu- ...Do you care, though? Answer: Nah.
As a "blogger" with maybe 1 person visiting for every 2 posts that I make, I've noticed that blogging is an innately lonely hobby. I mean, unless your blog is about going out and partying everyday - then, of course - maybe not so lonely.
That line always takes the wind out of my sails. I'm minding my own business, mindlessly playing my video games, and this bombshell of a line hits me. I stop in my tracks. I reconsider what I'm doing. 'Is playing video games at 3am what my life amounts to?' I turn it over in my head; I reexamine the statement. And I have nothing to say to it; no platform to argue for. All I can do is nod and smile, and go along my merry way. That's just the way that I do things.
