Well I wasn't there with Adam & Eve, so I am not gonna comment about their romance (or whatever - they didn't have much choice anyway, eh?)...  ;)

But I do understand this sentence:

Here's some cartoon Kierkegaard!  :angel



Alice was way more emotionally mature than Kierkegaard and could have taught him a lesson or two on how wrong he was to extrapolate his particular personal perspective as if it inescapably affected all of humanity (which is something quite a few philosophers seem to do and it seems to me, more often from psychological projection than from anything that stands up to rational scrutiny). Also, the choices she made with her life were anything but meaningless and still reverberate around the universe through other people even though she is no longer with us (she really got love and applied it super-generously and in very practical ways - she was to love what a lantern is to light, it shone out of her), but if you're going to think the way that's lampooned in the cartoon, it's going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. (By the way, I enjoy philosophy, it's fabulous for looking at different ideas, perspectives etc, and the most fun of all is to make a synthesis for yourself out of contradictory ideas; and I don't think Kierkegaard was entirely useless. ;))

This one is also hilarious:




...and then there is this...

'Suddenly far away'

How much sense do future statements make when Mercury is retrograde (like now) and gender neutrality is no longer guaranteed? Pure confusion. Only your hypocritical followers may find their way around.
Notre pensée opère par désir. Une idée nous séduit, une autre nous répugne.

(La science de l'amour, Éd. 1911, p. 93.)
