  Do you have a picture of yourself thinking?  That could make me laugh.
  If you really want the irony to be complete, have you next of kin send me
  a picture of your body cut up into a thousands bleeding pieces arranged
  to spell out "cogito ergo sum".  Just thinking about it makes me laugh.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
