today is forever?

complete this sentence, will you?

if everything that ever happened to me is just my imagination, ______________________________.

mine:

......, then why does it feel so real and raw?

---

i remembered being totally captivated by "abre los ojos" (open your eyes) a Spanish film when i watched it last year. not exactly a Sci-Fi chick (hm, i ought to use duckling) as i channel-hopped, i didn't know a boring night at home would turn out engaging.

[this post supposed to be a quick one as i simply.. wanted to organize some thoughts, put them into words before they escaped me again. yet, in the end I spent hour after hour reading on its movie reviews and other subjects linked like Vanilla Sky, Lucid Dream, Tesis, Alejandro Amenábar, Ubik, Cryonics, just to name a few.]

Cryonics-
derived from the Greek word κρύος (kryos), meaning cold. is the low-temperature preservation of humans and other animals that can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine until resuscitation may be possible in the future. Human cryopreservation is not currently reversible. In the United States, cryonics can only be legally performed on humans after pronounced legally dead. The rationale for cryonics is that the process may be reversible in the future if performed soon enough, and that cryopreserved people are not dead by the modern information-theoretic definition of death.
-quoted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

what a tempting idea to live on and on.. till eons later. to be an immortal, (be it aging or not) life will no longer be a cycle. it will become like the thread of infinite number (not a 'real' number) that goes on without an end. not taking into consideration of the resources to support the never-ending lifeforms (I'm not even sure could I still view them as humans, or as.. the undead? LOL! living on forever may be a nightmare), if it's highly exclusive, not everyone can afford this technology, who gives who the right to be the selected ones? by social class? by caste? it's almost like playing God, won't it be so?

the value of human life?
would no longer be like what the MasterCard ad says- Priceless.

达尔文

刚刚这首歌正在播放着,

我的青春 也不是没伤痕
是明白爱是信仰的延伸
甚么特征 人缘还是眼神
也不会预知爱不爱的可能
 
保持单身 忍不住又沉沦
兜着圈子来去有时苦等
人的一生 感情是旋转门
转到了最后真心的就不分

有过竞争 有过牺牲
被爱筛选过程
学会认真 学会忠诚
适者才能生存
懂得永恒 得要我们
进化成更好的人

我的青春 有时还蛮单纯
相信幸福取决于爱得深
读进化论 我赞成达尔文
没实力的就有淘汰的可能
 
我的替身 已换过多少轮
记忆在旧情人心中变冷
我的一生 有几道旋转门
转到了最后只剩你我没分

希望如此

3点。

又是凌晨3点。
不知怎么了,最近的3点都很特别。

他从房里抱着烫衣板走出来,
然后把熨斗摆在板上。

“你在干吗?”

手里拿着他的校服,回道:
“妈忘了烫。她总是记得一样,忘了令一样。”

对啊。总记得你的,而忘了我。

“那。你现在要自个儿烫?”

“不。把东西都摆出来,
明早她看到了,我要看她是否会烫。”

白痴。明早,她忙着煮水,忙着叫你起身。
她哪有闲情到客厅看?

“等我把隐形眼镜取下,我给你烫。”

他没拒绝。脸上也没有微笑,没有什么表情。
可,我知道他感到一些诧异。
因为,几分钟前,为了鸡毛蒜皮的事,
我对他发了脾气 。

我戴上了眼镜;把手也洗干净了。
开始做这蛮久没做的活儿。
虽不熟练,但没两下功夫,也就把它搞定。

“烫得不这么样,但不邹就行了吧?”

“当然烫过,就不邹。” 

我无语。

我倒在沙发上,继续看着面前的四方盒子。
对播映着的节目,一点兴趣都没有,但
无奈,这时候我也懒得再动。

“忘了说谢谢。” 他的谢谢,我懂。

哈。不要紧。

为了功课,为了学业,为了好成绩,
他每晚熬夜。

我。夜夜失眠,也无所事事。 

就要十八岁的他,怎么和我是两个世界的人啊?
