A Zombie's drive

Zombies are unstoppable. Even though a zombie is missing a limb or two or being shot at, it just keeps on going.

Although they always stumble, they always have the drive to move.

And it's true what zombies say... Moving ahead in life takes brains.

Zombies are relatable

There are times that we feel heavy and problems seem to weigh us down, and later on, it feels almost impossible to keep moving to what we want.. we feel lifeless, but still alive.

And this can all be likened to the life of a zombie.

Moving forward

Samsara = Life of a Zombie

Samsara is a belief in Buddhism meaning the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth. It is new life, but it is still full of suffering. As long as we are alive, suffering is present because it is natural for us to wish for good things not to end even though we knew that it would.

Meaning is the associations that our minds draw

Our brains invent it as a way to explain all the crazy shit that is going on in the world around us. This helps us predict and control our lives.

Types of Meaning in Life

1. Cause/Effect Meaning primarily involves the logical parts of our brain: You kick the ball, the ball moves.
2. Better/Worse Meaning has to do with the nature of our values and relies mostly on the emotional parts of our brains: Eating is better than starving.

Meaning is nature’s tool for motivation

It’s how evolution made sure we got shit done. When there is great meaning attached to something, we will go to insane lengths to make things right.

The new virus and its consequences to be remembered

The new virus and its consequences to be remembered

Humans worldwide are trying to handle, as much as possible, the current pandemic.

When all is gone, we are going to look back and mostly remember how important we found technology to be...

Future memories of the pandemic

The current period will undoubtedly leave us with more than just one memory. However, not all of them will be as important as the fact that we have all lost our sense of differentiating the days of the week, as nothing is happening anymore, or the fact of having a close person infected or even dead because of the virus. So we would better wish no memories at all instead of any bad memories to begin with.
