3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Always having "one goal left" is the way to maintain bliss, along with the humility to accept that all things pass, and at any moment. You can never be invincible, only robust and longer-lasting. The very nature of a character is to be limited.
On the universal scale, the ultimate purpose of a human character is to receive memes, eliminate some, and then pass on modified ones before expiring. It is tempting to see this character's memes as Ultimate Truth in evolutionary competition with all the delusions, but of course I cannot know that. I am confident however that ultimately delusions are limited in lifespan and ultimately die as successive generations no longer accept them and reproduce them.
It has been a joy and privilege for this character to simply SEE all this, to have ultimately enjoyed the movie. As upsetting and distressing as it has been in places, I'm well aware it has been considerably less distressing than many movies out there. My underlying "ground state" emotion is therefore gratitude.
I am particularly glad to have participated, to have uploaded my memes while I still have the capacity to do so, and to have made a difference. I will carry on doing so in whatever time I have left.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
The mudskipper is a fish that spends most of its time out of water and can “walk” on its fins. It carries a portable water supply in its gill chambers when it leaves the water. It can also breathe through the pores of its wet skin.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Life may be more akin to a series of meetings than a single marathon. You can lose a race here or there, as long as you win in one contest, in one area. All the struggles you endured will become a prized investment in your own person.
