Donnie darko

2 years, 2 months ago

Dr. Lilian Thurman: Do you feel alone right now?
Donnie: Oh, I don’t know. I mean, I’d like to believe I’m not, but I just… I’ve just never seen any proof, so I… I just don’t debate it anymore, you know? It’s like I could spend my whole life debating it over and over again, weighing the pros and cons. And in the end, I still wouldn’t have any proof. So I just… I just don’t debate it anymore. It’s absurd.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: The search for God is absurd?
Donnie: It is if everyone dies alone.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: Does that scare you?
Donnie: I don’t want to be alone.

What do you guys think of this part of the movie? This always scared me for some reason.Does it scare you to die alone ? If yes or no explain why.

We will all die alone, just face it.

As Louis CK put it, best case scenario if you don’t completely fuck your relationship up is that you have a best friend who you will have for all of your life until one of you dies, and then the other will be left all alone.

^ Depressing? Sure, sort of is. But after having just gotten out of a 4+ year relationship I’m starting to discover how important it is to not be worried about being alone or being dependent on someone else.

We all depend on someone, thats human nature. Dying alone? Depends on how you see it. As many people say, every situation, as small or insignificant as it may sound, has more than 1 prespective. I personally, dont believe we die alone. I believe that when we die, we die with everyone, because our relationships, at least physical, with all those we knew, also die. This means that with us dies much more than a body.

Sometimes, i like to think we never die, we just stop living in this reality, because there are an infinite number of realities.

Bottom line, believe whatever you want to believe
