all that matters...

‘What does it matter?’ ‘That’s all that matters’ ‘No matter what…’ ‘as a matter of fact’ hey, waitaminit, what’s the matter with ‘matter’? Why doesn’t anyone say ‘what does it energy?'? One would assume, quite naturally, that when matter and energy are considered quite equally important by well known, eminent physicians (names haven’t been mentioned not because of promised anonymity but because I can’t recall their names), why ‘matter’, well, matters so much? Much as I like to answer my own contrived questions, I’d love to hear some answers that don’t come from my own grey(ing) matter… any takers?

doesn't matter really. what does matter is having something to do so one does not ponder on such ahem... matters. :)

Shakthi and Shivam. Shivam can exist as it/he is, and has no purpose other than to exist. Shakthi on the other hand loses purpose when there is no shivam to act upon.

Am not being chauvinistic here...

And probably even if it did matter, who's going to bet against some anti-matter thing turning up one day and doing the equilibrium thing to the energy balance thing.

I do need more things to do in my life..

what does it matter?
the fact that the matter matters you when its not supposed to matter to you as the matter is not something that would matter you, but now that the matter has mattered you how about solving the matter?
confused?
so was I, when I read what you wrote ;-) and as you had asked me to comment on your blog ... so here I am, trying to solve the matter :)
any guesses ?

At the heart of the matter is the fact that we never know what really matters until matters have gone out of our hands - then it just becomes immaterial.
Just so you know - a contrived question can only beget contrived answers!!! Its like asking - if a tree falls in the middle of the jungle and there is no one around to hear it - does it make a noise?

If it does matter, an idiot in my office says 'fudge' instead of FUCK, so that she doesn't swear.

I think it is question of habit. If we had been brought up by hearing "what does it energy" instead of "what does it matter", your question might have been why would we say 'that' instead of 'this'.

Humans have evolved and grown based on their ability to question and innovate all the time.

Am wondering if you're aware that films of a questionable nature are often referred to by some in South India as "matter" films.
Considering they often contain graphic acts of violent energy, I'm quite sure that "energy" films would be a valid substitution.
