This is similar to the “meaning of life” topic. If you answer the question, “Why is Earth home to so much life?” you will find that you come up with a logical answer. However, if you continue asking “why” to everything that you answer, there will never be an end. For instance, why is there a universal consciousness? If you answer, “because every living thing is connected,” then you can still ask “why” to that. Who or what established the universal consciousness? If someone or something established it, who or what came before that? It’s never ending. It’s almost unsettling.
What do you guys think?
@apolloinfinity, Is there any reason to have our questions answered in the first place? I’ve found that the only genuine satisfaction that I ever receive stems from my contentment with “the unknown.” I understand that I cannot possibly know the origin of everything; therefore, I do not grow anxious towards the uncertainties I come across. I marvel at them and take my best guess as to what they might be trying to tell me! :)
There might not be an answer while we’re “alive” at least
I’ve watched hundreds of near death experience interviews and every single person refers to the acquiring, upon dying, of knowledge that far surpasses what we currently know and understand. Just food for thought =)
Of course there is a why.. Nothing is done without cause. This is not an accident..and for anyone to pretend that there isn’t a why is just absurd.. You don’t get to know why.. that’s the beauty of it.. you don’t get to know. NOW is all that exists. When you think about the past.. you think about it right NOW.. when you worry about the future, you worry right NOW.. so the past present and future exist right now.. Time is linear.. and there is a reason for everything.. what or why that reason is, won’t be revealed to you until this physical body is long dead and decayed.. It’s about consciousness, and once the masses rise about the christ consciousness into the new age of Solar consciousness, you won’t be wondering IF there is a why anymore.. It’s a pretty peaceful place to be. I get to just sit back and enjoy life, love unconditionally, and reap the joys of helping others through positive energy. Unity!
Maybe it’s because all questions and answers are just word games. We invented words and play with them. So why would we think there is any great truth to our concepts or that there necessarily is any answer to any question?
Not that words can’t be useful or interesting or plain fun. But they are still just words. They are mirrors and pointers. If you draw an object you don’t expect your drawing by itself to reveal the true nature of whatever you are drawing.
So we can answer every question as we like. We are the only ones judging whether the answer is *the answer* or has no merit at all.
For example say we posit the following question:
“Why is there anything at all?”
Because it likes to be.
There isn’t anything.
There is neither existence nor non-existence.
The ultimate is beyond existence or non-existence causes both.
There is no why, it just is.
There is an infinite chain of causes.
“Why” is a meaningless word.
It was created by God.
It came out of non-existence. And non existence came out of non-non-existence. And so forth…
I created it.
I found it in the trash.
Yes I like sloths, too, they are soo cute.
Fuck you with your philosophy questions. You are stupid.
Each answer is just an image. What relevance does it really hold?
There are no final answers if you perceive there to be none.. perception is reality. All of time exists right now.. it’s linear, therefore you have no idea what awaits you outside the 3rd dimensional world and what exactly comes next.. we are not physical beings.. we are beings of light that are nothing more than a frequency. Evolution and equality are going to bring out those answers.. hell maybe those ARE the answers for this reality.. who knows.. that’s why it’s so fun.
@jjj333, Time is not linear, that is a misconception, quantum physics has discovered that the universe functions on an infinite variable that can be described by a certain mathematical formula, this is why “why?” semmingly has no limit, because it doesn’t, it has infinite variables to explore.
Actually it is felt in the heart. What most people don’t know is that there is actually a tiny brain inside of your heart and you CAN think with your heart.. combine the powers of your actual brain, 3rd eye (pineal gland) and the brain in your heart.. You can literally think or feel with your heart.. You were once just a beating heart inside of your mother.. And no, time is linear in the 3 dimensional world.. so that’s why its the only time we have access to.. I attribute my ability to combine my heart and mind to my simian line.. 2-6% of the population have a simian line crease and most of them are from the east.. it’s gift given by the divine in order to help these ‘gifted’ people in their quest to bring humanity together.
@jjj333, Yep, time is linear in the 3 dimensional world, but a 3 dimentional world only exists because we percieve things in a 3 dimentional way. That is just a remnant of all our evolution, our perceptions rely on our physically acquired biology, seeing the world in 3 dimensional form is only due to us evolving as we have.
But then the realities of the universe can be discoved in our current level of that process and we can then start to look at the universe in the sense of how all things exists, not only being limited to the bias of how life exists.
