There is an old philosophical question that most college freshman run into in their intro philosophy classes. The question goes like this: If a tree falls down in a forest, and there is nobody around to see or hear it, does it make a sound? The question is about the nature of sound vibrations and whether they need an ear to exist. But, I have always found it to be a silly question that asssumes a little too much importance for human beings. Trees crashing in the forest do not need humans around to make a sound. As a matter of fact, all kinds of things happen without humans there and sometimes they even do make a sound.
The water has been poisoned and no one has figured it out yet… until tonight. Earlier in the season we saw Alpha orchestrating the pollution of the river with the blood of dead walkers. But until now, we didn’t know how it was poisoning people until Siddiq solved the mystery. Someone switched the valve, allowing the polluted river water into the potable water supply. But the big question is, did Siddiq leave any indication that this was happening before he was choked out by Dante? (Is he dead? Unfortunately it looks like this is the case.)
How long does it take to begin to trust people after you have been betrayed? Is it something that you can get over quickly? Or does it take some time? But imagine if betrayal was something that happened to you regularly. Would you ever be able to trust people?
This is something I always wonder about on The Walking Dead. In the ten seasons of the show, betrayal is something that seems to just happen every other week. In the early seasons of the show you would sometimes be surprised when someone would
Every parent has that moment when they have to explain to their children where they came from. If you are not a parent, you might remember when it happened to you. This is the moment when you explain some parts of your past that are very different from your children’s present.
Have you ever tried to forget about your past? Usually, you don’t want to be reminded of something unwise or embarrassing that you did. But sometimes we don’t want to be reminded of our past because, our past seems better than our present… Or maybe our perceived future.
Tonight on the Walkind Dead, we realize that some people in the zombie apocalypse have good memories of the not so distant past. Most of our characters’ memories are full of pain and loss. But in the case of Ezekiel, this is just not the case.
Have you ever had something happen so traumatic that you can’t sleep? Maybe you made a mistake, or you found out someone you care about is hurting. Or even worse, maybe you have lost someone you love.
Whenever something difficult has happened in my life, I try my hardest to stay busy, because it is usually the times when you stop and think when you are reminded of your trauma. But unfortunately, we all have to sleep, and that is usually the time when you can’t avoid thinking about what you don’t want to think about. So you usually
Have you ever discovered that an authority figure in your life doesn’t practice what they preach? Essentially they are saying to you, “do what I say, not what I do.” Maybe it is a teacher or a pastor. Or maybe even a close family member. Any way you look at it, it becomes really hard to respect that type of leader.
