Important questions

Who are you? Are you an individual, or part of a system? How did you get here? What do you hope to do with your time on earth? Do you believe everything you hear? Are  you happy? Do you think the thoughts in your head are your own, or did they come from somewhere else?

What is the purpose of your dreams? Can you control them? Do you remember them? Have you ever had the same one more than once?

Have you imagined that entire worlds live on in the dust we breathe, living on a timescale much faster than ours? Have you ever thought that life might live at other dimensions we cannot comprehend? 

Do you like to challenge yourself, or do you just like to relax? Do you like to learn new things?

How often do you question the basic assumptions that govern the things you do in your life?

Do you know what your reset button would be?

Does hopelessness ever creep into your soul and you lose all sense that anything can ever get better? Does every failure carve a new line into your skin? Do you ever give in to despair? What do you use to stand up the negativity inside of yourself? 

Do you think you have the right to be angry without limit? Have you ever hit anyone? Have you ever wanted to? Have you ever cried because you were angry that you were angry?

Have you ever had to make a decision you knew would hurt you, but you knew you would be better off in the long run? Do you regret things? 

What appeals to you? What makes you get out of the bed in the morning? When did you lose your innocence? Do you believe you ever had such a thing? 

Do you have hope? Do you hide it from people? Do you fear there are other people who want nothing more than to use your hope against you? Can you document it? Would it be worth it to do so? 

Have you ever given up? Have you ever just decided it wasn't worth it anymore?

Do you feel any joy at all in sadness? 

Did you know life that's nothing like anything else thrives at the bottom of the ocean where magma rises through vents in the earth's crust?  How does that make you feel? 

Did you even read this?

Is there a point?

How sharp?

Can I borrow it?
