I want to blog. About what? There's tons of topics, nothing really about my life. It's a thinking time of the year, after all. My main concern is how many of us are becoming fixated on what we "are". So many years of struggling to make a stand on something, to make life meaningful and all that crap have confused all of us a lot. I mean, people actually believe that they are what they believe :P So, with time, they will close the case. No further evidence will show them if they are wrong. It's hard to believe I'm so special as to not be like all the rest in that aspect. Being so sure about anything as to leave no space for doubt, is most certainly a proof that we are wrong and blind. Probabilities are against us. People through history are almost always wrong. They got to act with a simplistic model of life...

Ok, so the previous paragraph is a clunky experiment. I want to know how many read it as if it only expresses what is in bold.

Julio believes that real friendship is for the rest of your life. I disagree. I see relationships as living things. Julio has a static perspective of every primordial thing I can conceive. I mean, to him, happiness is a frozen moment in time of having everything you want. That's why he doesn't think it's possible. Real friendships die, as anything in this universe. It's wishful thinking that you're set if you found a real connection. Will this petty argument change how julio see friendships? I wish the answer could be yes. Am I so certain about this living meme? Will I ever accept a static view of people? What's the odds that I'm right?

Recently I've changed my opinion on: abortion, gun control and piracy. For almost all my adult life, I held a position. I wouldn't kill a baby. That was my argument. There's no baby in the first 3 months. Once again Plato is fooling us. A bunch of cells don't constitute a human being. They might one day, but that won't make you fertilize each and every sperm, right? You are not harming anyone if there's no nervous system at all. It can't even feel pain.

Camilo says it isn't the same to buy piracy as to approve it. I disagree. Isn't your expenses a direct expression of your will? Reyna said that it isn't. That you may approve it, without a financial shadow. That, I can agree. I'm a Geolibertarian, if you must know. Can't imagine a real argument against having weapons if you want.

I disagree with you about your human being concept.. they could be a mere bunch of proteins for you because they don't have a "nervous system" so for you a human being is one with a nervous system, so if somehow I damage my brain and loss my capability of feel pain I'm not human. Common!.. Ok your sperm argument, they're cells OK, but when they merge with female cells, a one cell starts a new complete process.. if you want to see it is a "human in development or in process" at the end the output is a human being. It stops being a cell because now it has the same number of chromosomes as you (46). And another argument is a "live organism", its DNA is completely human DNA. If you take one fetus cell and insert it into a new genetic material free ovulus, you get guess what? a clone.. another human being. Probably you're correct he/she won't complain, its state is so primitive compared as yours, but for example if you think as us of "DNA living programs" our lives, what makes us alive is our DNA there exist the amount of years that we could live, our characteristics, character, skin color, race and so on. You're alive since you were conceived that was you (your persona), that program started executing.. and is still developing. Just think as a physical object, like a product.. The product exist when is just "conceptual", lets say diagrams, design patent or when it has been produced and released to the market?... If you find a corpse or just a bunch of prehistoric bones what do you say? "It was human".. but now is just a bunch of calcium, without skip, without flesh, without brain nor nervous system... it lived once.. but is still human... Is just a matter of time but humanity exist on DNA... you can have a human being complete DNA (and that DNA is a human being,maybe you don't have the technology to create it for yourself with that information but is still a person).

Based on your argument I've the right to kill you because you're just a complex atomic structure of C,H,O,N.
