But what drives you? Work? Life? What’s life if you don’t work? ... Playing all day? But what if you can’t find a job? Then it’s neither work nor play. What if you work all the time and there is no play, or if you play so much there is no time for work... but then you can’t afford to play, and then what does that make you? ... Then you are back to square one - neither work nor play every day.
But if the point is to do one so that you can do the other, or to do one until you are able to do the other, which one do you choose? Because as soon as you do one, it limits the other, or maybe enables the other. Is it possible to do both at the same time? But then who gets to do that? Does that even exist? What does that even mean? But why shouldn’t we all do that? If we are only here for a short amount of time then why not enjoy it... right? Isn’t that what ‘they’ say? Who is ‘they’ anyway?
So why do we have to work at all? Oh yeah, to play. Because playing is enjoying. Right? But we can’t play without work, or unless we magically get to do both together. which is the dream... maybe, we guess... But when that’s not possible maybe finding just the right amount of work and play on the scale of time maybe, perhaps is the key... UNLESS one doesn’t want to play, they only want to work. Maybe people like to work, maybe they work so they don’t have to play because other people want them to play when they are not working, and really they just want to work, which means a perfect balance scale would not be good. Oh my!
So, we don’t know. What do we do? What is one... or two, supposed to do? Is there even a ‘supposed to’? Except that we have to work because someone invented money. We tried to barter but only certain small independent businesses would even entertain the idea and Jasp got into a few heated arguments about it. So back to circle one – how do we work if it’s hard to get a job, and how do we play if we can’t work, and then what do we do all day?
So the real question is: What is the meaning of life?
