Talking Zombie Walking Dead – FREE Vector Graphic Download of a Zombie!
Zombies are said to be fictional creatures, or are they? I see a lot of mindless animated human corpses daily walking around, driving cars, working their jobs, and they don’t even know they are dead inside… seemingly living their life without purpose. I will say most probably don’t have the desire to eat human flesh (at least I hope not)!
Today the popularity of zombies has soared, especially with such staple modern art concepts like the “zombie apocalypse”, This is where the world is taken over by these mindless “undead” living beings, without feeling, without mercy, without love, without hope. I’ve often wondered to myself why these things are so popular and maybe the only answer is that many may relate to them. It seems to me, at least, that zombies represent a low point in humanity whether evolutionary or spiritually. I have a tendency to think that my opening statement is correct that for the most part a real zombie would be living person who has checked out in terms of living a life with hope and purpose. And it seems obvious to me a being without purpose is essentially a zombie. Maybe Agent Smith in the movie Matrix Reloaded said it the best;
“We’re not here because we’re free; we’re here because we’re not free. There’s no escaping reason, no denying purpose, for as we both know, without purpose we would not exist. It is purpose that created us, purpose that connects us, purpose that pulls us, that guides us, that drives us; it is purpose that defines us, purpose that binds us.”
Well said, Agent Smith, well said. In short without the purpose (free or not) we are dead inside, but it may even go deeper than that… regardless zombies are walking dead to me!
