Social Contracts in Game of Thrones

That’s because she understands the way things are…. People work together when it suits them, they’re loyal when it suits them, love each other when it suits them and they kill each other when it suits them… She knows it. You don’t.

Postal Service – we’ll become silhouettes

happy thought for a friday… just heard this for the first time the other day – think it’s been lurking on my ipod for ages…. you could use this for an IA considering materialism, mind/brain identity theories, parfit – almost anything… por afterlife stuff??

I wanted to walk through the empty streets
And feel something constant under my feet,
But all the news reports recommended that I stay indoors, Because the air outside will make
Our cells divide at an alarming rate
Until our shells simply cannot hold
All our insides in, And that’s when we’ll explode
And we’ll become silhouettes when our bodies finally go
