Part of my life in a single sentence.
Thanks for all your answers on my questions from yesterday. The bottom line was to understand how can a simple, basic organism decide that it wants to evolve and to reproduce. This is completely mad! Because somehow we are talking about a sense of continuity of the mind and self of a single organism through reproduction to achieve that evolution.
However, in general, you say that there is no reason for this to happen, and furthermore that “we are an accident”. But, isn’t it strange that before the unicellular organisms had appeared and even at that time, somehow they decided to evolve? Where does that decision came from? And what about us humans? What is this consciousness thing? Is it just an illusion that humans created to be able to survive, that can be scraped?
I can only think of 2 solutions: 1. Either this is really an astonishing accident, and we are just atoms living an illusion that will end forever someday; 2. Or, there is really a “greater” force in the universe, an universal consciousness that built all this and we are just roots of that universal consciousness and there really is no end…
We must find out! :)
Btw, I’m not sure if this is the right gif to show for this message but it seemed somehow related. Maybe this can be a moving picture of my brain while thinking on those questions. ;)
And one final note. I put the same questions on my facebook but I received no answer whatsoever. There is really no point in using facebook for deep questions. Or maybe people from tumblr are just too awesome. :P
You are the world and the entire universe.
In one way or another, the thoughts that you have were “painted” in you by the people that surround you. It is just up to you to decide which ones are going to define you.
What I can find here is the duality of our thoughts, because no thought in our mind come without its opposite. We can not make judgements or take decisions on anything that we don’t know its opposite. So I would dare to say that everyday life is a road with a lot of two-way crossings from which you will never be able to step back.
Running as far away from the city as possible, looking for the night sky, the stars, the moon, the shadows, the crickets is a necessity to me. I can not stand too long surrounded with limited, narrow-minded people when I have so many eternal, infinite thoughts and feelings.
