Charon's Coins


“A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.”

                                                                                                -Faust

Where does Charon stash his coins?

He gets paid doesn’t he?

All the dead guys, their coins go to the ferryman.

Enough people have died…everyone does.

Two coins to Charon from each dead man.

Where does he put them?

He must have lots of coins.

Wouldn’t the weight of them all sink the boat?

                Pay the ferryman

                To get to the other side

                When you have died.

-You missed the point,

 It’s immaterial.

One step forward, two steps back.
One step forward, two steps back.

We can say by metaphysics that our lives are planned and predictable, though seeing the events and situations in our lives in the reality of what they are ontologically there is no interpretation of them that implies greater meaning. From a nihilistic point of view we do not have any lives and there is no meaning. So this is about my views on life.
