New Motivation

In by Chris on January 2, 2012 at 12:41 am

I’ve been in the habit of saying that the deepest reason of why I write is so that I don’t die when I die.

Is that self-centered? Where’s my altruism?

Also, if my writing is wholly for myself, who’s going to keep it?

I think it’s time to re-define: I want to help our species and the massive ecosystem of the universe at large through my writing. I want my writing to promote understanding, to prevent disconnection.

Of course, I still won’t die when I die. And is helping the species as a whole nonetheless a form of evolutionary selfishness?

  1. Yup — that’s the whole reason why we all care about each other and our young. Selfishness.

  2. Are you being serious or sarcastic?
