Why does one write? And I must warn you that my posts that start with a 'why' never go anywhere...if anything they go everywhere that you might not want to go. So getting back to the question, is it one of the many ways to pretend the ability to create or in the inverse, a way to stave of the eventuality of extinction? Is it communication or self-aggrandization or the aesthetic determinism of ' I have something to say that must be said'? Is it an entity with a life unto itself that must have a medium? Is it random and proababilistic or is it a necessary corollary to society and culture and historical continuity? As in did somebody show you how to write? Or do you write because you wanted to be somebody that did?

Next question: Why we we need to reproduce?
