MindFuck

Anonymous (@) 9 years, 7 months ago

Light travels at 186,000 miles/second. Thats fucking nuts to begin with. It’s even crazier how long it takes light to get to other planets, stars, solar systems, etc. We, as humans, have a hard time getting to the closest planet next to us let alone the next galaxy. How the fuck could anyone argue that we are the only organisms living?? This topic interests me so much and I’m curious to know some facts/opinions you guys have.

@msaracino, I’ll come and post briefly, to say yes this topic is epic and people just have a hard time wrapping their minds around it. Your point is valid and I am sure there will be a few other replies that science it up a bit more than I did.

@sirensetmefree,
WOOOOOOOOORD

OP doesn’t understand the omni-cosmic emergence of life.

Wish I could again find the original more scientific article I found, but.. http://www.wired.com/science/space/news/2008/08/galactic_panspermia

Not too much of a mind fuck for me either, because I’ve always thought there were others out there, even from a young age, just based on the sheer size of the universe.

The ‘Mind blowing story: Talking to God’ blog post on here kind of sums up how significant I think we are.

@steven, @siantastic, the mind fuck is how far away everything is and how vast this so called “universe” is. How something can be hundreds of thousands of light years away! We can’t even comprehend it. I think that’s capable of fucking ones mind idk about you.

@msaracino, It’s theorized that the very first life on the planet (ie the bacteria all life on Earth evolved from) originally came from asteroids that crashed into the oceans. In other words, all life on Earth technically came from extraterrestrials.

Who knows what else is floating around out there?

@msaracino, I get what you’re saying. I know I am unable to really measure how long hundreds of thousands of light years is. But like I touched on, I do think of us a minuscule part of something ginormous and always have… And that doesn’t really blow my mind at all. The thought is pretty normal for me.

@msaracino, The universe is approximately 13 billion years old. Our time of space travel & exploration has only been for 50 or so years. The thought that we are the only ones in this vast scale of time is ridiculous to me. If the entire world represented the universe, we wouldn’t even be a fraction of a speck of dust.

@donjaime23, the ancient Greeks came up originally with that theory and called it Panspermia.

@nightowl, my bad, you already covered the theory of Panspermia.

Panspermia – “Everywhere seeded”

Related:
The most sound perspective we have now from the cutting-edge of scientific findings is that life is an inherent quality of the eternal cosmos.
From the infinite forms it takes on, all of it feels alive to itself, even stone.
What our vibratory resolution is capable of discerning as “life” – within the bias we hold when looking for it – is simply the manifestation of life’s waveform in increasingly “dense” structure as it builds mediums to actively cultivate its own awareness, instead of “passively” [which is active from another resolution].

We as the human race are just now in the coming year breaking the threshold of the majority of our drive being “unconscious” in nature and are finally almost rightly considerable as fully conscious beings.

But this does not change the fact that everything is an alive and aware single conscious Selfhood taking on self-relative forms.

There is an actual mindfuck for you.

The cosmos can’t even be said to be TEEMING with life… THE WHOLE THING IS LIFE!
