People who know me know that, although I admire very much certain persons, like Tolkien or King Leonidas, I also admire very much many imaginary characters, and I set some of them as example.
Some may think that this is wrong, because those characters are considered "fake", but this is how I see it. It's all real. Think about it. Haven't Luke Skywalker and Santa Claus affected your lives more than most real people in the world? I mean, whether Jesus is real or not, he's had a bigger impact on the world than any of us have. And the same can be said for Bugs Bunny and Batman and Optimus Prime. They've changed my life, changed the way I act on the Earth. Doesn't that make them kind of real? They might be imaginary but, but they're more important than most of us. And they're all gonna be around here long after we're dead. So, in a way, those things are more realer than any of us.
