This is a short post, as the readings are not particularly dense (though Rennebohm's essay does touch on particularly complex and difficult issues).
From the television series Angel: "If there's no great glorious end to all of this, if nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. 'Cause that's all there is: what we do now, today."
Do you agree that this is what the show is about, at least at this early stage?
"the unique, specific human body is an integral aspect of identity, not to be forgotten or left behind." (8)
Yes or no? Explain. How much of our identity comes from our human body?
"Identity exists in this moment." What do you think of this?
Is it true that our identity is quite different apart from our physical bodies? Can our identity exist without the physical body? These are not easy questions, and are ones that touch upon theologies and eschatological musings. In any case, I look forward to your responses.
Finally, which of the three episodes for this week worked well, and which did not? Why?
