Back on track

Just so you know, I'm still alive.

I must be bored of saying this over and over to many people, who are too busy to even care. But I say it anyway. I just like saying it, I guess. Just to maintain that connection with my past. My heart harbours the faint hope that the past will become part of the future too. Its difficult to entirely let go of your friends. No, not difficult... almost impossible. And it should stay that way.

Its good to be back on track. Finally, work has started to become interesting. I just hope the pressure doesn't build up till I pop. I hate pressure. I like working at my own sweet pace. You must know that already, if you know me.

Well, enough rambling for today. I don't actually feel like writing much nowadays. I don't know... have I lost my blogging instincts? Be that as it may, I just wanted to share with you something that has been keeping me company all these days. Something that I could always rely on to make me relax and enjoy even the dullest moments in life. What is that, you ask? Music!

Yeah, I have some good music stashed away on a share, so I can access it from anywhere. Unfortunately (or otherwise) , most of it is Anime soundtracks. I just love listening to the instrumental tracks while reading, working or even walking home from the rail station. Just like the missing background music from my own life, I might say.

So here you have it... you can download it from here. If you want that is. If you do, post me a comment. If you don't, just do it anyway. A piece of anyone's mind is better than nothing.

Purpose

"There's no escaping reason, no denying purpose -
because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist.

It is purpose that created us,
Purpose that connects us,
Purpose that pulls us,
That guides us,
That drives us,
It is purpose that defines,
Purpose that binds us.

We're here because of you, Mister Anderson, we're here to take
from you what you tried to take from us. Purpose."


Whether they managed to take back from him what he took from them, is a question of perspective. If you believe that by destroying the only man who stood in their way, they stole his purpose, I should disagree with you. Because his purpose was to destroy them, and he did so by his own destruction. What a climax.


Few movies make us think about life the way the Matrix does. It shows us the possibilities of a future in which humans have lost their purpose, and live (live?) only to be fed upon by machines.Is this our true purpose?

I always maintain that the Terminator and the Matrix are two parts of the same story. First comes the Rise of the Machines, and then comes the domination of humankind. Then come the Revolutions, and then finally, victory.

Well then, what was the purpose of these movies? Was it to make us think? Or was it just to make bucks at the box office? This again, is a matter of perspective.

This is my perspective. If you have yours to share, you're welcome!
