Luna philosophizes

Why am I a cat?

What is the reason my consciousness is attached to my furry brain?

And what exactly are we when we’re dead, or even sleeping?

Do we cease to exist when we’re not conscious?

And isn’t it amazing…

… that we can freely imagine such vivid worlds with continuous stories in our dreams…

… while expending absolutely no conscious effort?

The capability of conscious thought is infinitesimal compared to our subconscious minds.

And and…

If you thought really slow, could you see the movement of the moon?

Another question!

What defines beauty anyway?

Certainly some of what defines how beauty is perceived is genetic?

Do cats find sunrises beautiful?

If not, would we at least…

… find sunbeams beautiful?

If dolphins are supposedly so smart…

Wouldn’t they find their lack of fingers just frustrating?

To have evolved such brainpower, but…

…they can only swim around, with those flippers.

You won’t see them posting comments here, because they couldn’t use a computer, even if it were waterproof.

But that’s enough pondering for one day.  Yawn!  Meow.

  1. Dear Luna–

    Hi. I hope you’re well. I really like that your hooman made you a website. Mine hasn’t done that for me *yet*. He thinks that just because I have my own Facebook page, that that is an acceptable standing. It isn’t. And I don’t want to be inconsiderate, he buys me the best food ever and he gets me kitty treats. I have all sorts of tall things to climb on. I have three litter boxes. It’s nice. . . but I have to share EVERYTHING with these two other guys. They’re so stupid. Boys are dumb. And they have gold fur. Who the hell has gold fur? That’s so 1990’s. Anyway, I really like your website and I think you’re the coolest cat ever.

    Your biggest fan,

    Leela McKitten.

    • Dear Leela,

      Purr! Thank you for being such a fan! I do agree that lack of a website is unacceptable, but could you imagine life without that “catio”/sun-bathing balcony you have at your disposal? Scott tries to open the windows for me despite how cold it is outside, but it’s incomparable to your feline-friendly resort. So don’t feel too bad. A website is great, but still a consolation prize.

      As for having to share. Yeah, that sucks. Maybe you want to kill them both, and use them as furry beanbag chairs.

  2. Awww…. she looks so content, yet she philosophizes.

    I see that she has taken possession of the start chart. 🙂

  3. philosophising

    I sit in evenings dim glow
    and contemplate the mysteries of life
    with my cat
    As our minds begin to grapple
    the subtle complexities of infinity
    We realize that pencils on paper
    sound like mice
