|If you listen close you can hear|
the echo of this guy being killed
by a lion.
General Maximus from “Gladiator” once said “What we do in life echoes in eternity.” That sounds nice especially if you’re about to go into battle to die, but what does that even mean? Does that mean everything you do echoes in eternity? If that’s the case then who cares? If you’re going to make an echo just by doing things in life then why not make an echo laying on your ass eating potato chips than dying screaming being murdered by a barbarian?
Plus, an echo isn’t a big deal. Who wants to be an echo? Echos are generally very faint and often indecipherable. Do people really think some alien in a five million years is going to say “Hold on, what’s that? I think I just heard an echo. Sounded like a guy scratching his balls.” Yeah I’m really sure that’s going to happen. That seems highly unlikely and even if it did happen, who cares? That’s five million years from now. Not even a speck of time in ETERNITY. Surely the echos of what we do on this planet die down a little over the course of FOREVER.
