Yes, they are current and yes, they are beautiful.

Is it okay that I define anything or anyone this century is "current-ish"?

Does the very concept of time warp more and more as we get older, as if we're approaching a Black Hole?

So time accelerates as we get older because there is a temporal black hole sucking us in closer to it?

Could it be more of a philosophical Black Hole? :lol:

Is your philosophy of life any different today than it was 25 years ago?

Yes, I think so. I think I'm less selfish now, and I think I have a better sense of life's priorities now.

Did you get your brains and creativity more from your mom or your dad?

How can I be sure when they both demonstrated talent, but neither used it?

What was their reason for never using their talent?

Could it be that they were raised to settle for the trivial and the mundane?

Wow. I wonder if an entire generation was raised to settle. And I wonder if it's still happening.

Do you see that kind of settling in other family members?

Wow. So how have you avoided this trap? Was there an inciting incident or some epiphany you had early in life that helped you realize that expression of your artistry was a very high priority?

Are you suggesting that comic book superheroes helped you realize that your artistic talent was your superpower and that it should not be squelched?

Don't you think that experiencing art inspires some people to create art?

If a time machine hurled you back to age 20, would you pursue art as a full-time career or would you do the same things all over again?

Wouldn't it be wiser to invest my savings in Microsoft and become an independent creator and patron of the arts?

Wouldn't savvy time travelers be able to manipulate us into thinking just about anything?

How could they manipulate the past and still guarantee their own existence?

Are these temporal paradoxes the reason why time travel may be impossible?

If time travel were possible, would the absence of time travelers be a type of temporal Fermi paradox?
