PostSubject: We All Shine On... Through Intersubjectivity   Thu May 07, 2009 11:54 am

I was listening to this song, and being agnostic about an afterlife, I was thinking to myself that it would be nice if we really did shine on.

Instant Karma (We All Shine On)
by John Lennon

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right in the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon your gonna be dead

What in the world you thinking of?
Laughing in the face of love
What on Earth you try'na do?
It's up to you
Yeah, you

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna hit you right in the face
You better get yourself together darling
Join the human race

How in the world you gonna see?
Laughing at fools like me
Who on Earth d'you think you are?
A superstar?
Well, right you are

And we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well, we all shine on
Everyone, c'mon

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognise your brothers
Everyone you meet

Why in the world are we here?
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on Earth are you there
When you're everywhere
Gonna get your share

Well, we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
C'mon and on and on, on, on

Yeah, yeah
alright

Well, we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on and on, on and on

And we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well, we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
Like the moons and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun


But then after thinking about it some more I came to the realization that whether our "souls" shine on or not, at least some part of us lives on after death thanks to intersubjectivity. Intersubjectivity is the shared subjective experience. It's the part of us that we share through interactions with friends and loved ones and even people we don't like.

So even after we die, as long as there are people around us who remember us we "shine on".
