Stranger: then what does give you hope?
Stranger: if you believe in no higher power
You: The good things that come out of life.
Stranger: seems as though you follow blind
Stranger: im not meaning to offend by any means
Stranger: i myself am atheist
You: You're not offending me.
Stranger: but i see no hope in life
You: Neither did I, until I read those stories.
Stranger: but that is believing what could be full fiction
Stranger: like the bible
Stranger: it is following blindly
You: And it very well may be full fiction. But those stories don't tell me that I
have to believe in a god.
You: They don't tell me who to follow. They just tell me that there is /possibly/ a
glimpse of hope.
Stranger: but what does hope come from
You: Hope comes from the heart, of course.
Stranger: the idea stems from many fantasies
Stranger: like that of the heart
Stranger: a heart was chosen to portray a feeling
Stranger: symbolically it could be loving with your kidney
You: I understand this. But where does love come from? Hate? Friendship? It all comes
from /somewhere/. Not your brain.
You: Your brain tells you what to think.
You: Not what to feel.
You: alright, so I love with my kidney.
Stranger: it does tell you how to feel
Stranger: nerve impulses
Stranger: i think into science
You: I took psychology, I know it's literally your brain. But still, you can't
convince yourself how to feel. You can't convince your brain to feel a way.
Stranger: emotions are false ways of expression. love is not a real thing only an
exchange of caregiving
You: It just /does/.
Stranger: and what makes it
Stranger: do that
Stranger: it suggests more into biological studies than psych
Stranger: i also took both
You: and love is not just caregiving. Love is having a burning passion for someone.
It's hatred and sadness, and happiness, and caring, and friendship all in one.
You: So therefore, love is not just a feeling, but a cluster of feelings.
Stranger: and yet it is a relationship
Stranger: mutual givers
You: No, one can love someone without the feeling being mutual.
Stranger: but it is a trade off deal
Stranger: time for time
Stranger: time for interest
Stranger: there is no pure love
Stranger: it does not exist
You: And how would you know this?
Stranger: because i have not seen it yet
Stranger: except once in my caregiver
Stranger: but surely she expects something
Stranger: like being taken care of when she is old
Stranger: so there again it is a mutual agreement
You: Exactly. So you have seen in once. There is pure love; one can love without
asking a thing in return. I love someone, and I don't expect anything from them. I
don't expect them to take care of me when I'm older, and I don't expect them to love
Stranger: you do expect love back
You: I do not.
Stranger: if you are a woman then you must want chivalry
Stranger: and if you are a man then you must want physical and mental
Stranger: i have seen this to be true too many timesw
Stranger: and the world revolves around money
Stranger: a form of power and control
You: No, no. I don't care for money.
You: I have no job.
Stranger: i do
Stranger: i work for the system
Stranger: i sell my time for mere items
Stranger: it is sickening but necessary
You: and I am a woman. I don't expect chilvary.
Stranger: i am a woman
Stranger: i thought i loved many people
Stranger: but after 8 years i was dropped like i was nothing.
You: That's the thing, though, doll. You can't let the past effect you now.
Stranger: the past repeats itswelf
Stranger: because no one learns from their actions
Stranger: no one
You: That isn't necessarily true.
You: Not for all people.
Stranger: well i believe it true
You: I learn from mistakes.
You: My father didn't. But I do.
