Think about it. What if you left work early, coulda gotten in an accident. If you didn't spill that coffee on your clothes and had to change you could have been hit by a bus. Who knows how many times an accident or event has spared your life. Crazy thing to think about. Moral of the story, don't let the little things bother you, you don't know where you'd be without em.

its kind of like the show flashforward(if you havent seen it I suggest watching it while baked its on netflix 1 season), a garden of forking paths. at any point in time you could have taken a path to death, but you avoided it. crazy shit. good highdea

Sorry man, it's just all in the timing. If it makes you feel anybetter, Someone did the exact same thing as Rosa Parks a month before Ms. Parks did, but she got no response, Rosa Parks did it and it spread like wildfire. So.....yeah, just lucky I guess.

I say leave the futures behind you, for it's a fool who dwells. What could have been, isn't. The futures that were planned out, so to speak, never made it past that point.

well, if i wouldn't have smoked 8 bowls consecutively, i would have been raped by a wolf-monkey. and you don't fuck with wolf-monkeys.

No shit man I think about this all the time! Like what if taking the scenic route is your mind tricking you into avoiding death?! It's just a subconscious reaction.

I see it as this... Life is your perspective of a series of events in time. You will forever live in the moments that you exist in; this means once you die you will just live on in another moment in time. In every circumstance where you could have died you didn't because you can't inhabit a dead body. You died in a parallel universe but you can't live in that universe, so you live on in the universe where you survived.

Good idea. But isn't death always a possibilty given the infinate poteinital outcomes of any individual moment throught the entire course of our lives? following that, it seems to be the case that the ever present possibilty of death nullifies itself. That is, the awesomely shocking reality of the situation's possible ocuance is negated and factored out by its own concrete and absolute existence.
