Then and there

While watching Seeking a friend for the End of the World, I asked Eamon if he thought that if there were no “rules”, if he would act or feel different then he does. He said probably not, and I agreed. I don’t think we base our expectations of ourselves on many external cues.
I have a friend who has told me, a few times, that if he found out there was no hell he would probably not behave as well .
Having grown up without the expectation that my actions would alter what would happen to me after I died, has, I think, made it about doing the right thing for the sake of , well, doing the right thing. And of course that is all relative.
