I wanted to take my share of the people arguing with Alan and maybe
contributing, unintentionelly, to his feeling of unease.

"I listened to your laments and I felt a deep sympathy for you trying
to heal us, to heal the world. Maybe that's what I feel we maybe
forget trying to make a diagnose and applicate a remedy. We have been
through. we discussed the terrible ways the Mesopotamian kings killed
each other, or Dario blinding thousands of prisoners and letting only
one of each hundred to keep an eye to be able to lead the others back
to their country.

Maybe the destine of Humanity is this, to die in the most horrible
ways and the only relief we get are small pockets of happiness, when
we compose, as you do, when we sing, when we write, when we laugh with
our dear ones.

I don't think of you as a nihilist, for me a nihilist is a cynical and
resigned observer and you are definitely not a observer but one
letting it's sould being engaged in the honest search for answers."

This was my comment to him. I think that's the key, to find small
pockets of happiness, to don't try to heal the world but to embrace
the pain and the losses and the loneliness and the absurdity...
