Her favorite band shared a quote: "The only thing real is now."
I wrote a philosophical treatise on that statement: "The problem with this claim, is that it ignores the natural progressions of time and causality themselves. Now is forever in the process of becoming then, which forms memories and biases. These become recursive of the now. So unless both are addressed fairly, they shape a bleaker tomorrow that will be equally real."
She threatened the entire friendship over me writing that treatise, because how dare I act like her favorite band is anything less than totally infallible! She's 40, but came at me with all the emotional maturity of a 12 year old.
I told her that her words wound me deeply, but that I'd go to pains to have her back if she lost everything. No rock band would ever do that for her. Plus, I have to be true to my convictions. To understand that. I won't even treat bands I like as above reproach, but will offer loving correction when they need it.
She replied: "Not when it comes to [my favorite band]!"
She then accused me of "violating" her "boundaries, " demanding I accept them. But won't respect mine.
What am I to make of this?
