I was commenting on a friend’s status and in it I said the word “Godspeed”. And first I looked at for a while. first because it isn’t a word I use in everyday speech but then I dissected it deeper.
To move with the speed of a god. No, even deeper. To move at the speed of God himself. DEEPER. To move at the speed of God or greater. Now I’m blowing my own fucking mind.
I started comparing.
The speed of sound < the speed of light < Godspeed.
What do you measure Godspeed in? If you travelled at Godspeed, how long will it take you to get to the other side the universe? So I make up answers. If you tried to measure Godspeed, you’ll implode. If you travelled at Godspeed, you’ll get to the end of the universe earlier than you left. The concepts I was thinking about were wrinkling my brain so I stopped. And went back to dicking around on the internet. But the dumb word wasn’t the point point of the story. The point is how one abstract thought bounces off of another until it takes on a new meaning and its something human beings do everyday. A random act that defines us that is taken for granted by some. Pretty impressive. And now back to looking at porn.
