Bothered But That Does Not Matter

- Does it bother you that most people can communicate only through lies?
- Does it bother you that most people prefer to hear lies over the truth, even when talking to themselves?
- Does it bother you that we as humans live and breathe through communicating and yet still have not mastered this art?
- Does it bother you that the speakers in the name of this god that supposedly created us with love are the ones behind our own demise as civilized beings?
- Does it bother you that being bothered is a virtual intangible thing?
- Does it bother you that you spend most of your time doing stuff that do not matter?
- Does it bother you that all that I have said so far does not matter?

- Does it matter to know that we have polluted space?
- Does it matter to come up with the perfect plan to clean space up when we still have not come up with a plan to care for one another?
- Does it matter to be able to draw up on 5500 years (roughly) on written thoughts and history when these surviving documents have been written only by the survivors?
- Does it matter if god created man to his image or man created god to his image when the events of every day would still be the same either way?
- Does it matter to people I do not know if they heard of my death?
- Does it matter if I made all these remarks and still did not want to do anything about them?
- Does it matter if I used the religiously inflated number "7" in both sets of questions?

Probably not...
