"My car drives when I fill the tank with candy"
"It needs fixed"
"But it works..."
"Not the way I want it to"
Who's to decide what's broken?
The mechanic, or by analogy, the doctors?
We can keep the body alive and trick the brain into thinking it's happy with pills, but that's not really a repair. It's more like a band-aid. Band-aids don't fix boo-boos, they just stop the bleeding so the body can fix itself. It doesn't always work though.
What the fuck isn't selfish?
In the extensive introspective kick I've had for maybe a year or so, I can't remember a single thing I've done that was entirely selfless.
Everything helped me some way. Maybe you're talking about a matter of degree, but in a state where you think to subvert hundreds of millions of years of evolution, it's probably a safe bet that you're not calculating very well. In fairness, I don't think you can really hold that against them.
