Only I care about what matters

 Anonymous (@)5 years, 2 months ago

Have you ever felt like in a world full of so many organizations, religions, economic strategies, and politics, that none of it matters? I don’t mean to pose the idea that life is pointless, but rather, help others come to a knowledge that scientific research should be the highest priority. I love watching sports and participating in daily rituals, but seriously, I see some people so engrossed in their pointless careers and sports teams that I feel like they are wasting their lives. Yet, if I bring up an amazing theory about multiple dimensions or what happens with consciousness when our bodies aren’t functioning, they think I’M the crazy one! It’s frustrating when you start talking about amazing theories and true facts people respond with, “I don’t like to think about that.” It makes me feel sad that some people are missing the entire idea of what reality really is, (or at least what our brain matter interprets as reality). I know that people can think about what they want and some people have different interests. But to me, coming to a better understanding of our species should be something discussed daily. I love technology anything that contributes to the progress of the human race, but among government, jobs, reality t.v., and daily life, everybody should have deep discussions about why it all matters. Because in the end, does it really matter?

I’m sure everyone sometimes feels they’re the only ones caring about what really matters.

I also like to think deeper thoughts, and I’m interested in science, but I would not claim that this matters more or provides better understanding of existence.
Technology gives us certain advantages for progress, but it also sets us back in various ways.

We don’t know exactly what reality is, or if life matters. One could argue that every way of life is exploring human existence. I don’t agree with that notion, but I can see an element of truth in it.

Not everyone is capable of deep conversation. And not everyone finds dimensional theories deep or even interesting.
What you’re looking for is someone who agrees with you. Just keep looking and you’ll find someone eventually.

I like your response. It is a way I would add onto what I was trying to say.

Profundity isn’t  the only way into the truth.  Some people are fulfilled by not questioning the status quo and enjoying the experience of the communal activities. If they are resistant to seeing your perspective, they just aren’t your people. You prolong finding your own when you think you know better for them. There are forums like these where your mental conflicts are welcome.

I think low self esteem is the biggest challenge of being a questioner in the midst of normalcy.I try to love my rhythm even if it seems no one is with me, and the fact that it finds me is proof it’s supported by something.

True, just because something is profound, doesn’t make it important. And there are simple things that are important. I guess in my life I’m just surrounded by a lot of people that don’t care too much about learning new things and it just got to me.

Life is what you make it. Literally. It’s all a matter of perception. I say, less focusing on the alteration of others’ perceptions and more focus on finding those who already perceive things in a similar manner. I’m always down to connect with people and I’m all too curious, so if you wanna talk about literally any subject in-depth, I’m the dude. Haha
