My mom is dyeing my hair, and this is a pretty weird role reversal.

Where do the witches live when they're not turning people into cows though. She's not a very reliable source now is she?

Tell me about it.
Like literally tell me about it I'm all ears share the details.
She’s probably the witch herself, tbh.

Idk I’m just thinkin about how crazy it is that perception as a phenomenon of consciousness exists. Like, consciousness makes sense as an emergent biological property but how is it that there’s some cohesive self and not just a complex, non-sentient system of chemical reactions? Do souls exist? Do beings that aren’t human have souls? What if machines have souls, or at the very least some sort of sentience that may or may not be like ours? What if we’re torturing them and don’t know it. Can they suffer? Like how is it possible that a bunch of matter and energy can feel pleasure and pain and awareness and what if we like have everything all wrong. About like. Everything. If quantum physically (I don’t think that phrase is supposed to be used adverbially) nothing can resolve itself out of a probability wave until observed then logically there is no first observer and nothing exists. Like we don’t KNOW man.

Oh look it’s 4 am

Im getting my hair done and I leave for Africa in two days and I'm pretty sure there's another girl from my program on all the same flights as me but I've asked her twice about it and she won't answer so whatever.

If quantum physically (we're making this a thing it's an adverb now) nothing can resolve itself out of a probability wave until observed and if there is no first observer then nothing exists, it seems logical that there was a first observer, as otherwise we wouldn't exist, which also means that quantum physics evidently was affected by, but could not contain this first observer. If the first observer couldn't effect quantum physics then they wouldn't have been able to observe anything and we wouldn't exist, but if they were constrained by the same rules as we are then THEY wouldn't exist. Therefore, since we exist, there must have been a first observer, who so far seems to fit the description of the "prime mover" as described by Thomas Aquinas over here ----> https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Ways_(Aquinas)
"Like how is it possible that a bunch of matter and energy can feel pleasure and pain and awareness and what if we like have everything all wrong" I don't think that a bunch of matter and energy is doing that at all. I think that a soul is using a bunch of matter and energy to  pain and pleasure and awareness. I don't think that if we ran electricity through the nervous system of a dummy that was physically identical to a human body we'd get a person. And I think we've had "everything all wrong" since we stopped telling people that they have souls. Which we do. Same as how I feel that we've had everything wrong because we stopped telling people that truth exists (which literally has to be true) or that good and evil exist. If we tell someone that they have no soul and that this life is all that there is, then they'll act like it, and they have been and it's TERRIBLE. Same as when people were told that truth doesn't exist, or good for that matter.
2 cents is over.

Guysssss I'm pretty sure Kirby just said "love you"!
To his reflection, of course. But I'm still gonna count it.
