Luxury means something with no meaning at all



Of course. Humans can be kind because there are things they do not understand. If they knew everything, they would attempt nothing. If they attempted nothing, nothing new would happen. Humans seek answers to the things they do not know. That is how kindness, nostalgia, joy, and fun are born.



I think I would like someone else to kill me. I want someone else to interfere with my life. Is that not what wanting to be loved means, Saikawa-sensei? No life is born of it's own volition. Isn't the instinctive desire of beings, born not of their own volition, for their lives to be taken in the same way?



Whenever I get up in the morning, I always think to myself, "Am I really the same person I was yesterday?" For example, just as a computer loads its OS into memory and boots up each time it restarts, is it possible I'm just booting up the person called "Saikawa Sohuei" each morning and trying to play that role?

Often, they mistakenly think that they wish to exist for the sake of others, or to help everyone. They can not accept that they don't know why they exist, yes? They always want an answer. That is the nature of the animals called "humans".
