How does it feel to be another?
Daytime sleep is like the sin of the flesh; the more you have the more you want, and yet you feel unhappy, sated and unsated at the same time.
Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do.
Be Free by King Dude and Chelsea Wolfe. Some people are meant to work together. Brilliant.
La Iglesia dice: El cuerpo es una culpa. La ciencia dice: El cuerpo es una máquina. La publicidad dice: El cuerpo es un negocio. El cuerpo dice: Yo soy la fiesta.

I can’t get him out of my head! It’s like I’m always seeing his image in my head, not that that’s a bad thing. My life has changed for the better since I’m with Johnny. He’s so amazing!

O BRILHOZINHO NO OLHO
O impulso. Tratar de arrumar as malas e sair é decisão adversa. Se está a morrer, mata tu. Triunfo glorioso de quem come o próprio coração. A essa tempestade também se chama progresso.
Antes de ter medo prefiro conhecer. Dançar no vazio e perder a fé nesse momento.
Se não tenho fé, não acredito nem em deus, nem no diabo. Nem no céu, nem no inferno.
Se já não acredito no inferno, já não tenho medo. E sem medo sou capaz de tudo.
Que me brilhem os olhos.
Just being human is not good enough anymore nor has it ever been. What is very clear is that people are not satisfied with what they were naturally born with. Neither the prehistoric cave dweller nor modern man has ever considered the human body aesthetically satisfactory. It is human nature to want to be more than what we are, and from the beginning of time we have gone to extreme measures to express on the outside how we desire to be perceived. On the surface, we are physically turning into ideal dream versions of ourselves. Being born a certain way is no longer a life sentence. We can choose exactly who we want to be. What are the possibilities of this new God-like control we have over our bodies? Right now you can truly become more than just yourself, more than human. It’s almost as if we have shifted from reality into fantasy. The sky is the limit when it comes to controlling our own image. Being online is considered a trusted version of yourself. We are behaving as if we have robotic extensions and we can now generate body parts and also have access to the technology to obtain super powers. We now have complete power over our own image and abilities. What is currently being done and where might these God-like powers potentially lead?
