Is there enough time for everything?
 
There are so many movies, TV shows, books (novels, comics, classics), video games, music, and other forms of entertainment, good and bad, that are worth looking at/experiencing, but is there enough time in the human life for all of it?

:rolleyes:

Of course, there's not enough time for everything. For everything you pick and choose, there's always something that you don't pick and miss out on. So, all these things are a matter of preference.

On top of that, y'gotta work and do stuff that y'might not want to do, but still have to.

As would say my former teacher of something I hate called philosophy...
Human is all about entertainement, but to entertain himself he needs to work, in the end, he works more he entertains himself.

So, no, there's not enough time, that's why you choose, every time you end up regretting, but whaever, that's what living is about.

Music in games so you can do those at the same time (if the music is good lol)

I'm not sure.. I remember in some instances I when at home and no work:

1. Play VNs while still log in Animesuki.
2. Watch anime while log in Animesuki.
3. Listen to music while log in Animesuki.
3. Watch an anime while playing a VN and log in Animesuki.
4. Listen to music while playing a VN and still log in Animesuki.
5. Play RTW while playing music and still log in Animesuki.
6. Read mangas and doujinshi while listening to music but still log in Animesuki.

..the possibilities are endless...

Is there enough time for everything?

short answer : No

No matter how much time the humans have, it will never be enough and they will always ask for more.

SaintessHeart 2012-12-13 20:58

Sure. Only if you stop giving them to other people.

But the problem is, if you don't give it to other people, you become self- deluded and detached from the world. Ironic, isn't it?

mystogan 2012-12-13 21:16

it is never ending, even if you do most of the stuff managing along with your daily work, there will always be more stuff do if you search, and in the future more and more stuff will be created

ellifeedn 2012-12-13 21:31

I know there isn't enough time, and it depresses me sometimes. Still, I like to imagine that someone will make it possible, like being able to see movies while you dream or something crazy like that.

Work to live. Live to work.

Is the OP filtering for quality or are they going to spend 90% of their life wading through all the crapola bits? :)

Irenicus 2012-12-13 23:59

You asked for it. You really did. :heh:

When we learn how to digitize our thinking patterns/memories, allowing us to replicate at will over a broad spectrum of media, and after the modern world creates a more rigid control structure to keep the third world permanently enslaved to serve as the labor pool to fuel this new society that would occur when we are able to unshackle ourselves from mortality, then you might find enough time to do "everything", or at least all the things you could want before you grew so bored you just commit suicide.

Until then, the answer is no. :D

What is good or bad, what is quality or crap, it's all subjective. That's why I said "worth looking at/experiencing" as even supposedly bad media has or can inspire something good, like MST3K.

Actually, I am happy with two forms of media - books and music.

Especially books. I lose my temper if someone disturbs me when I am reading. Considering the lack of non-fiction books being written nowadays about discoveries instead of opinions, there isn't much to read.

Frankly, if given the choice, I'd put my head in a immortalization jar so I CAN have all the time.

Futurama, hurry up and make it happen.

The subjectivity raises another interesting point. You may appreciate something at one point in your life, or after having experienced another form of entertainment, but how do you know what is optimal to view and when? Since we have limited time and want to optimize it, how can you know what you'll enjoy the most, given what you've most recently experienced?

Aside from going off of your own intuition and the advice of others, you can't. I don't think there's a point in trying. The best thing to do is to focus on yourself and enjoy each day as much as possible (even the moments that aren't necessarily pleasant). Don't dwell on what you can't see or do, but focus on what you can.

MUAHAHAHAHAHA 2012-12-14 14:57

You choose what is important to you but ultimately, you still won't have enough time to enjoy them all, so try and live life to the fullest, because you never know when you are going to meet your Maker.

Gamer_2k4 2012-12-14 17:15

Of course there's not enough time to experience it all. What in the world gave you any doubt in the matter?

Flower 2012-12-14 18:48

To be honest it does not really matter to me whether or no there is enough time to enjoy it "all". Why not just begin to do so as best you can in accordance with the circumstances and the like you find yourself in and make a real beginning of sorts instead of worrying about it?
