A person must create a creator in order to escape sinking into depression. It gives mankind hope to think that someone is watching over them. This is an argument I’ve heard many times.
Personally, the Creator actually depresses me to a certain extent. It would be sweet if there weren’t such a thing. But as I pointed out in my blog The Philosophy of God – http://www.writingforums.org/blog.php?bt=7239 – infinity makes existence impossible.
Thinking of the universe without a first cause, an unmovable mover, one can expect that energy and matter are in constant turbulence. It will never cease to change and rearrange, and with infinity guaranteeing that all probabilities shall be fulfilled, I would get to live countless lives. I shall be a king, a beggar, whatever.
Anyhow, it always makes me pause when I hear someone say that a creator is wishful thinking. Reality is usually not all that glorious – not nearly as glorious as unconstrained infinity.
I’m not an expert on playing the blues, but if I come across someone with a harmonica or acoustic guitar I usually end up playing the blues with them. It’s really simple to follow along.
The blues usually starts off on the root note, which makes it simple to identify the key. Not only that, but you don’t have to worry about major or minor scales. You can play minor notes over major chords, no problem.
Most of the lead notes are in the pentatonic scale. Here’s me playing the blues (That’s how I define it anyway). I throw all kinds of scales the E, A, and B chords, and they seem to work just fine.

This is Don’t Cry by Guns N Roses. I probably shouldn’t embarrass myself by posting this, but oh well. And I made quite a few mistakes, too.

Hey, I’m posting my essay in my blog just in case anyone wants to comment on the content. I hope you will.
Hey. There was a discussion about guitars in the Tavern, and I thought I might play some music written by Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu for Chrono Trigger. I think it is beautiful music. Though I don't do it justice. Also I suck at editing video
I’m not sure if I can post a link. So either search You Tube for “Chrono Trigger, 4 songs on guitar,” or paste this into your browser, and deleting the space between the “h” and “t”:
