NO END TO THE PAIN

by Mr. Mean-Spirited




Even you, even you, my dear reader, will have to admit that existence is crammed with misfortune – and even you will have to acknowledge that this misery only increases as we get older. Things only get worse as time goes on. An obvious, observable design. 

I have a suspicion that this plan continues after death, and that only constant torment awaits us in the realm beyond. This same pattern of torment persists throughout life – and afterlife. If there is a hereafter, then it is going to be horrific. When it is all said and done, eternal anguish is what humanity truly deserves.  

Consider it as theistic pessimism. Only a malevolent entity could devise something as horrendous as existence – and I think that there is a horrible shock awaiting everyone after death. Surely this much agony cannot be the result of mere random chance. No ache is an accident. This much unhappiness has got be the result of a deliberate plot against you – there just isn’t any other explanation.

Your last breath is not going to end the pain, but only make things worse. I am not convinced that death is the cessation of suffering – as much as its continuance in a different form. I am certain that some evil being designed the world, and he has saved the greatest tortures for all eternity. You may not believe in an afterlife – but the Lord has got a little surprise awaiting you. Think of it as the ultimate practical joke.

There is never any end to suffering – in this world or the next. No comforter, no savior, no redeemer. You’ll see.

    1. Hell is eternal – and inevitable. Nothing can be done to change your fate.

  6. Señor Mean,
    Yes, existence is full of misery and misfortune but I hope that with death everything ends. The Lord has a little surprise for all of us? No, the ugly surprise was coming to this never ending pain. Take care. Raul from Paraguay

    1. Raúl, I fear that the same processes that trouble you in this life (never-ending pain) will be the same patterns that might torment in the afterlife (never-ending pain).

    2. Only ''might'', Raul, not that they surely and definitely will, so no need to fear or be in a terrified, horrified, afraid or any other fucked-up state. Mr. Mean-Spirited, see you in hell to hear more of your fantasies, probably about the sfter-afterlife. Might relieve a lot of boredom, in case we are entitled some time out of torture, pain, agony, and suffering. Seriously, Mr. Mean, what you wrote here is an extension of Jewish Kabbalah, Christian Gnosticism and Islamic Sufism mostly turned backwards. As complete loads of bullshit as they are, so is yours. Take care. Omer from Turkey.

  7. Sounds a bit like "The Eternal Recurrence." Do you embrace the misery or do you try to run from it?

    1. There is no way to escape the misery. You might hide from the mishap for a season, but eventually the misfortune will seize you.

  8. O boy your twisted. Your messed up life views unfortunate. This are all great but, if you had been a better person your life would have been better. No family to cheer you up in your old age? You waisted your life, end it now for humanity to have a sliver of a chance.
