...please say you won't leave me behind. You know I don't need your attention. I don't need your pity or your grief. I'm not a slave to your affection, I'm a slave to your belief."

Gosh, I <3 Todd Lewis and the Burden Brothers. His writing isn't quite as amazing as his style of singing. Makes me emotional.

However, I have been considering the amazing philosophic underpinnings of the final game in the Leagacy of Kain series. This is a series of games released on the Playstation and Playstation II which basically follow the destinies of two main characters named Raziel and Kain. Kain is a vampire who basically assures that the vampire race continues in Nozgoth, while dooming the realm to decay. Raziel is one of his soldiers who discovers the trangression of Kain and basically sets off to kill Kain (which will raise the curse on Nozgoth). However, thanks to the meddling of a time-weaver named Mobious the pair are thrown back in time and discover the incredible conplexity of their own fates.

While I have hardly explained the plot indepth enough to truly revel it's amazing philosophical questions I can say this...it brings up questions about moral relativism, fate and determinalism, and several other mind boggling ideas about the reality of time and space. I can't wait to finish the last game in the series. I have a feeling I will cry because I know the end of the last episode was so thought provoking I was overwhelmed by how full of wonder the world is.

I can't wait...

Hi =D. I like the idea of that time-weaver Mobius like the Mobius strip. There's a lot of thought behind some of games these days. I like my playstation 2 , Haven't played Legacy of Kain. What do you think about some of those questions? I'm not even sure what moral relativism is.
Space and time. What if time were the fourth dimension of space and gravity it's opposite force? What do they say in the game or what are your thoughts =D?
