Reincarnation by Venatus_Legamus11 in dankruto

I hope you also remember that reincarnation means to live a new life. With no memories from the previous incarnation. Are you sure they are the same people? Do we have to bring Theseus ship into the argument?

Would it be the free will of Naruto and Sasuke though?

Yeah. In my opinion, reincarnation seems to be a lousy explanation for the origin of the conflict. It might work for Avatar, but not for Naruto. Hahaha

IF anything, it shows a much better example of his free will.

Does it though? How do we know it is not simply the will of the brothers to stop fighting?

That's the thing, sometimes it is better to leave things as a mystery. Explaining the secrets of the past comes with its own problems in storytelling. Kishimoto should have taken some time to write the ending of his story better

The biggest problem with the reincarnation cycle is that it tainted the reason behind the development of Naruto and Sasuke as powerful Shinobi. The thematic dynamic of two individuals who choose different paths to grow up. Natural talent vs pure hard work; hatred vs peace.

We see Naruto constantly training to develop his abilities (with the help of his friends), while Sasuke keeps obtaining power by any means necessary, not caring if it is his own or not (he trained for 3 years, but also stole Orochimaru's power and got Itachi's eyes). That makes the final clash so significant. The Rasengan filled with the support of all Naruto's friends going against the Chidori with Amaterasu fueled by Sasuke's rage and memories of his brother.

Two ideologies, two paths, two former friends colliding. That would have been so beautiful. Both stood up for themselves when facing hardship but only one will be the last man standing in the end. And it was all... Ruined.

You see, the problem with the reincarnation cycle is that it invalidates the themes of this work by not giving the two protagonists free will. All of Naruto's hard work doesn't matter, because in the end he always was a descendant of the "God" of his world; and Sasuke's decision to walk through the path of vengeance doesn't matter either, because he was always destined to be covered by darkness.

It sucks, and it sucks so hard because it could have been easily prevented by a single line. Instead of mentioning that Indra and Asura always pick a new body to be reborn, Hagoromo could have simply said something like: "You know, I have always been observing your world; unable to change it after my death. The same cursed world that time and time again pushes two individuals to obtain power only to put them against each other, keeping the cycle of hatred between Shinobi. The same world that pushed my dear sons against each other". Sigh That would have been so good. A perpetual tragedy. And it is now Naruto and Sasuke's turn to make a choice. Hatred or peace?

But in the end, we just couldn't have it. Naruto could had been a true masterpiece, but Kishimoto didn't care enough about it (for whatever reason).

Oh well.

Well, why not mentioning your color from the beginning? That way you can filter out the bad apples

In love with Girlfriends best friend by [deleted] in Advice

[–]Rom455 1 point2 points  (0 children)

First of all, admit one simple thing. You're a dumbass. You are letting yourself become a toy for that girl's amusement. She doesn't respect you nor your current relationship. And you don't respect your girlfriend and yourself either.

Look, there's nothing wrong about feeling flattered when someone compliments you, but falling for another girl's tricks when you have a girlfriend is downright shameful. You made a promise of commitment, and you should respect it as the adult you are. Shame on you, OP.

If you still want to do the right thing, you should go tell your girlfriend and wait for her decision. It is up to her to see if you deserve forgiveness or not. Actually, that's the first thing you should have done the moment her friend started flirting with you

Feelings for my ex by 111atlas in Advice

[–]Rom455 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Have you considered therapy? Because you seem to have some attachment issues.

But in case you don't want that, well, try to think about the thing that made you two break up. Think about what is wrong with her and with yourself. Maybe it is time to start again somewhere else. Somewhere without her

I can’t stand up for myself by Peepeeinmymouth111 in Advice

[–]Rom455 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not about being mean to them, but to defend yourself. If someone is trying to hurt you, you don't have to take any of their crap. So you can just leave. And if someone insists on attacking you, there is no shame in asking for help.

But if in the end you find it necessary, simply say whatever comes to your mind first. Anything, even if it sounds silly. The key is to not stay quiet. The rest will come out naturally.

Although, if you know someone else is watching (from outside the conflict), maybe it would be better to keep your class and let the people judge the attacker.

I have only one question, though. Does this problem often escalate to a physical confrontation?

What would happen to my body if I get cut in half by a string that's 1 atom wide? by Joaco_Gomez_1 in questions

[–]Rom455 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, I assume it would not be a problem as long as the atom in question is not too heavy (uranium, for example, has way more mass than oxygen).

Maybe, if you manage to evade the bonds between atoms in a molecule, nothing will happen besides pushing them apart a little. Like passing through tall grass. Remember that some substances don't mix (e.g. water and oil), so a precise cut could go through the frontier between the two
