OP, so what's your estimation that any one of us can 'buck' this system at any given turn in the cycle? Are we doomed, as it were, to infinite repetition of the same-but-not-the-same due to forgetting? Quoting: Never Won 30813586
Or can we become aware...as if in a lucid dream? I'd like your opinion of the mechanics of this "thing". Please and thanks.
As nietzsche calls it, eternal recurrence or the eternal return, yes you are condemned to be you, as you are now, for all eternity. it will necessarily be both a blessing and a curse.
As i've said a few times, the mechanism by which you firstly realise that this is the case, and otherwise understand it, is through deja vu.
To realise this as the truth is to experience an undeniable, undoubtable deja vu - one where you simply know that you have lived this moment before, innumerable times. It's not just "wow this feels weird, like i've done it before" its "HOLY SHIT I'M HERE AGAIN IN THIS EPIC MOMENT WHICH IS FIXED AND UNCHANGEABLE".
The point is to come to terms with WHY it doesn't change, and I can try and help you do that, or you can do it on your own. I'm easy :)
