6th of November of 2013 - 1 year since Kirk Neville (Derived Energy) passed away.

Bazompora brought to my attention that today marks 1 year from the recorded date of death of Kirk Neville, the Derived Energy from Youtube. 

I think it´s fitting that this is remembered. I didn´t know him personally, and the exchanges I had with him were fleeting at best. However, when I heard about his passing, I actually felt it like it was happening with someone close to me, and even, to myself. Because I saw his sufferings in my own. Not his specific conditions, of course. But this thing about being an antinatalist, a pessimist of this sort, this feeling of disconnection, of being an outsider, in a lot of senses, all the pain that goes with it. He felt it, and I also feel it, and you (if you are one) do as well. This pain he felt, is also my pain, and I will carry it until my last days here, as did he. Strangely enough, for all the distance, and all the outsideness, this pain connects us in a way. 

Again, I barely exchanged two phrases with the guy. I barely knew him outside the videos he created. I know the lives of the ones reading me right now are full of harm as well, and I know that there are possibly people who read my blog, that are gone now and we didn´t even registered their names, their presences. In this sense, there are lots of things to be remembered, lots of things to be talked about. Registered. But we know one thing though, one year ago, an antinatalist, and a particularly fine one at that, committed suicide. It´s only natural that we, denouncers of injuries, remember this, not only because of his death per se, but for all he went through until he passed through the gate.

Is anybody still out there?


Hello everyone. I´ve been depressed these last couple of months, and thus I took some time away from the blog. This will probably happen again, but this space brought me a lot during the time I spent here, so I will not let it go like that. I´ll write again here (so, stick around) even if it takes a little while. I´m just gathering my strenght.

Special thanks to all who helped making this website what it is, and awesome comment from Sharkbabe here
