    I just saw the crazy film 'heartless' which is pretty much b-grade garbage except for one poignant part of the film where the father explains to the son how suffering, isolation or mistreatment due to societal prejudice forges a deeper understanding. The blessing being a form of enlightenment and a window into considering truth. It is a truism seldom verbally expressed about human experience.

    Then i saw 'the thaw' about a prehistoric invertebrate parasite and i realized how both the cold and uncaring aspect of nature/universe is not the only extreme which is harsh but also the parasitic nature of life feeding on life which is equally disgusting.

    That has got to be one of the most blatantly disgustingly raw films depicting vicious and ravenous life ive seen. The greedy overt breeding and consumption at another life's expense is starkly but disturbingly realistic portrayal of living organisms. I had an urge to blowtorch, bleach or kill something which clued me into the notion that life is disgusting on some primal level or this disgusting system should all end one day. The uncleanliness is also us. Maybe the universe will be blowtorched or bleached out of existence one day like one teeming pus filled life unaware of its own grotesque game it is degradingly forced to play because of some chance or degenerate rules/laws of the universe in how it breeds life.

    Humans are just bigger parasites on the food chain.

    Anyone seen the movie ; Forbidden Planet ?

    1956 ; with Walter Pidgeon , Ann Francis and Leslie Nielsen .

    The movie is actually pretty good , for its time .

    Its concepts and special effects are very good .

    Humans have to fight against all sorts of living organisms to survive. And these parasites feed on us as well.

    Getting rid of this Universe changes nothing.

    There will be a point where we get all of our nutrition from synthetic absorbable fluids
