Just had the most aggravating conversation with a friend who strongly believes that nothing is original, that everything is inherently a copy of something else, but somehow that everything was new at some point but got to a point where things only appear original. My argument was that originality exists in the way we change and 're-create' these influences, that we're all given the same tools but its what we make with them that are original because our experiences are inherently our own/nothing can every happen the exact same way twice.

tl;dr: jacques derrida pisses me off. originality does exist.

my friend would probably say that because you're posting on here, on an account, on ultimate guitar, at night-time, that you're imitating or were influenced by others have done so.

isn't that aggravating?

Your friend is only trying to say his thoughts on the subject in a debate, why would you be aggravated by that?


Also, punch you friend really hard in the face for me, would'ya?

I would pick him up off the ground and tell him that I was influenced by his stupidity to punch him in the face, and then repeat my statement.

except I wouldn't cause I'm only tough on the internet

Yeah, it's annoying, but just tell him to shut up about it and move on. That, or get him to do some acid.

Common sense.

I really can't be bothered to care about all these ridiculous philosophical ideas. I'll just let people with less of a life than me bicker about them.
