A day can be viewed as 24 hours, 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds. Every hour, minute and second is precious and however many months or years we live, we have always been told to value life.
We need to value life yet ensure we fulfil our objectives and justify our reason for existence. We were put on this planet for a reason. That reason is to create life and survive. We survive life by eating & drinking and having suitable accommodation to live in.
Now we as a human race, eat many different things – some people are vegetarians, some only eat ‘junk’ food and others a bit of everything. Does not matter as long as we procreate and survive.
Since the dawn of time man has managed to make a building space out of nothing. Whether we live in a cave or a condo it does not matter as long as we procreate and survive.
We watch numerous nature documentaries and with the help of Dr Attenborough understand the focus of animals on these objectives. They eat and keep warm for the winter. They have sex, I mean reproduce, to ensure their species are maintained. We also see them play around and perform other antics similar to human beings.
So why is it as human beings we are told to “stop wasting your time” and that “life is too precious to waste”?
Surely, everything we do aside from ‘mating’ and eating is a waste. How can we be more productive with our time to perform our objective? Or what is the point? Has humanity reached the tipping point? The number of people on this planet is over 6 billion. Can this planet handle this number or does it even need more people? Maybe that is why we waste life.
By wasting life, here I simply mean, doing anything and everything aside from fucking (whoops – the correct term is making babies), feeding our bodies and getting the required rest to allow us to continue, you know, doing the do.
I say everyone should waste life and waste life to the maximum. If you want to work in an office do it, if you want to draw pictures do it! It is your time to do as you please. If you want to marry someone and waste some of their time too, then do it. Everyone claims we do not have time to waste, I OBJECT. We actually have too much time on our hands to waste. Medical advancements let us live longer and have test tube babies and thus have even more time to waste. In this century, the actual act of Coitus is not necessary to make a baby. IVF, ICSI and whatever other processes are out there and hence people have sex to waste time.
Next time someone says to you “STOP WASTING MY TIME”, ask them why? Ask them, what are you going to do with your time that is so important? If they state anything other than “making a baby”, “eating” or “sleeping” then keep on wasting their time.
HECK, me writing this piece is a waste of time but I can do it. Otherwise if I want to get back to our objectives, I will finish my bagel, go home and try and impregnate my wife.
