We want to hold on to our capacity to deeply experience the tragic. We all know our lives will end, we will lose our identities. We don't want to lose our understanding of loss. To lose that would be too great a loss on top of the inevitable loss we're destined for. A society with no understanding of loss is a dystopia to us. We consider our ability to react deeply to our deepest experiences as integral to our self-definition as people.

In a time-sensitive Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen considers the few billion of years worth of pasta-flinging that lead to our current present right now, and wonders if there's some larger, subconcious, species specific goal humanity has in mind - to be found in a future somewhere between Buddhas and monsters, heroes and villains, equanimity and whatever the opposite of equanimity is.
