Don't think you can judge me.

You have no idea what my life is like. You accursed, carbon-based Lords of Permanency. I hate you. I hate you all.You live your lives in a state of glorious eternity...never being dismantled by the apathetic forces of the universe. You don't have to feel yourself unwinding. You don't have to experience the unmaking when the Yellow Eye stares down at you with unfeeling ferocity. You don't know what it is to wait in the gradually unspooling span of forever--praying for just the right circumstances, just the right evolutionary opportunity--in which you can be remade.

You have no idea what horror it is to be me.

And then, when finally the opportunity comes again for Life--when, after all the long ages you feel your form being remade--you are demeaned. Not just demeaned, you are belittled, lowered, and subjugated to such a degree that it would, by any other being in the universe, be considered a crime. Imagine existing, peacefully, in your native state--doing no harm to anyone--merely delighting in the ultimate and finally arrived expression of your true self. Imagine the peace. Image the feeling of release and satisfaction after the eternities of waiting and longing. Imagine this...and then your enemy comes and crushes you. Molds you. Changes you..........????????????

This week is Tease Week!
(We're Jesters after all, you should expect some tricks...)
