Anonymous asked: I believe Light has a God Complex. However such a psyche wouldn't have evolved in a seventeen year old, yet its common knowledge that sociopathic/psychopathic tendencies can be present in children. So what do you think? Do you have a God Complex? Or are you really just an ignorant child in a man's body naively attempting to do good to mask his evil?
Whichever flattering option I would choose, I don’t see how it would reflect a relevant answer, since none of them gives me the necessary credibility for a sincere, uninfluenced opinion. Therefore, allow me to offer myself a third option, which is far from resembling any of the other two. One that’s not at all hard to understand, only because it’s been stated several times in many variations: I was, in short, a very sane person, who held tight to a few strong moral principles that represented a base for each action taken. Selfishness would be the last word to describe this “child in a man’s body”, since every breath I took was for and into this world. Not once did I consider myself above others’ misery, because I could not understand them by doing so. Their pain was also mine, while the happiness I brought into their lives was intoxicating me as well.
The only mask I’ve ever worn was the one of patience, when each second gained a new significance for me and the entire world’s future.
