Not yet. But I do know that the title come from a William Blake poem, and that Jim Morrison named the Doors after it.

I've wanted to read it for ages, but it never even occurred to me to google it. It's good already.

We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies—all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes.


I know exactly what he's getting at here. So many times I've tried to explain to someone what a hallucinogen is like, but you never can. Everyone has a different experience.

Confession: I talk about drugs way too much. Sorry. They've just been such a huge part of my life for all I can remember.

MisterKwiz wrote:Ever since middle school my friends had always made comments similar to 'Your either a guy or a girl or an Austin.'

And then one day about eight months ago I was like, 'Hey, actually being female would be pretty sweet, it makes sense to me.' Then the next day I thought 'Oh wait, can't happen', followed by 'Oh wait, Transgenders a real thing, I guess that works.'

Nothing has exactly happened because of this choice yet though, other then a few people knowing.

Anticlimactic story I know. (:


Confession: I've always had far more than a passing interest in changing genders and becoming female. Hell, if you said there was some one month-long treatment which would make me completely female I'd probably do it if it weren't for all the social implications with already having friends and family. That's why it be easier if it was an overnight thing and against my will =P The most ironic thing is if I woke up tomorrow morning to find that reality had been changed so that I'd been a girl from birth I'd barely change anything about my life. I'd probably wear the same clothes, act the same way, be interested in the same things. A total tomboy (which is also ironic seeing as Tom is my name). I'm not unhappy enough to actually go through gender therapy though and as far as I now about current knowledge it's not close enough that I'd be satisfied with the final result. But I'm a bit of a perfectionist. And a romantic.

Confession: I'm also very embarrassed to post this here even though I know you guys are a pretty tolerant and understanding bunch.

@felltir: *hug*

@bandit: I often wonder how prevelant the gender swap idea is in our culture. I know I'm an outlier in this, but I've wondered, how many people have thought about it? Or like hearing about it? Or would do it if it were cheap? Or if you could switch back?

One the one hand, I'd give anything to be biologicall female, especially if it could be an "always" thing. Never having to had to deal with being trans would be a blessing. On the other hand... I'm slowly starting to actually like who I am. I mean, I'm getting comfortable being me. And if I were just genderswapped right now, I mean, yeah it'd be great because I wouldn't have to work anymore, and I'd be whole, but would it be me? Would a genetic female me be the same as trans me?

Just musings...

I'd say no, but I'd also ask 'does it really matter?' I don't think so.

I wish I could explain why I feel that way, because it makes sense to me, but I just realized I've been staring at this 'Post a reply' page for like thirty minutes now without really getting anywhere. So sadly I'm going to have to leave it at that for now :\

Confession: After reading the latest CAD comic (the fact that I still check up on CAD is probably a confession in itself), I moved my mouse over it to read the alt text.

Confession the Second: I move to my dorm on Wednesday and I have yet to do any meaningful packing.

Wednesday? Hell, I move tomorrow and I haven't packed at all! I'm becoming quite an expert at shucking all my crap into a vehicle in a couple hours and taking off. It's a given that I forget some things, but that would happen even if I packed for a straight week.

Basically, packing is overrated.

You are absolutely right on the mark. That's what sells me. He looks you directly in the eye with a ridiculous expression while playing a ridiculous thing.

I hate gift cards that expire. It seems so evil, like they're saying "if you are forgetful or indecisive, we take your money."

Or you could just wait for inflation to rob it of its purchasing power. Either way, gift cards are a race against time. Dramatic stuff.

Blinded by your human ways
you've brought about the world's decay
peasants now to live in fear
the human race shall disappear
twisted thoughts to save the day
you've bestowed on us the age of plague

Could you conselve all of my mind's pain
come with me through my eyes you'll
see pain you may never know
but in which your kids will grow

As they grown in the chess
and burning remaine
what will you tell them
about humanity's defeat
