you need to lighten up, man.

It has been argued that existence itself has no ultimate meaning, and rather, humans themselves have the capacity—and the need—to fulfill their lives in a "meaningful" fashion. From this I've deducted that there exists three types of people; three lifestyles; three ways that human beings fulfill their hunger for a life with meaning.
Person A is probably the most regular of the three. Person A is the kind of human that goes about living their life normally, but whose character makes up for their normality. Person A strives on popularity and attention, and a meaningful life in their eyes means being remembered; having a legacy; leaving their dirty footprint on the carpet of society.
Person B is the most powerful of the group. Person B looks upwards at all times, is optimistic in their future and forgiving in their past. A meaningful life for Person B means appeasing a god or a higher power. Person B is regularly religious and always spiritual. Person B strives on obeying; following suit; pursuing the unknown.
Person C is the coward of the three. Person C lives in fear; despair; and worry. Person C lives their life out of fear that after it's all said and done; there's nothing for them. Nihilists and realists alike can often be seen as Person C. Person C claims that a meaningful life comes with living in the moment, but it's hard to lose track of time when you're counting down.
Sit back; Ask yourself who you are (if any). What have you been living for? What will you be living for now?

I do need to lighten up.
Now, here's something you've probably never seen before.


collective, concerned
serving, waiting, depending upon
internal conflict of interest, a team of opposites
questioning, knowing, seeing
evaluative, blunt

this has been abstract at best.
more shit on the way;
