So if everything is all theories what's the point?

Travis Fisher (@tfish012) 8 years, 1 month ago

Woke up this morning and was reading some articles and it just hit me in the face. If nothing is a 100% provable what is the point of questioning it all? Why do we try to understand the inconceivable and the impossible to comprehend? Are we just getting in our own way of peace by constant questioning? Or is all this just the point of questioning? To get to the point where you realize it doesn’t matter and never will? Yes i know questioning is the reason for advancements and profound leaps in our evolution but does it get in the way of living in the moment?… I laugh at my own post because its all questions >_< hahaha

@tfish012, Are you familiar with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs?

About one month ago I devised my own “spiritual” hierarchy of needs that I think you’ll be able to relate to, especially.

1. Curiosity
2. Questions
3. Answers
4. Understandings
5. Acceptance

You may very well have climbed to the top rung of that “spiritual ladder.”

And when you bore of the top, feel free to descend down at will. All of the fun lies at the bottom.

@optimystic, i just read a quick tid-bit about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and i’m quite surprised about how relatable it is to my situation so i thank you for that.

I do have a small question about yours though, is your top rung level 5 or 1?

@tfish012, Truth is in enjoying life, you don’t need answers to enjoy life but exploring life is part of enjoying it.

@tfish012, The “top” rung is the last one (5). It’s not necessary about remaining there, though, but rather, just getting to the point to see the view.

@tfish012, @optimystic,

Even the Buddha pursued truth with all his might by rejecting the hedonistic princely lifestyle, and pursued his ideals with all his might by instructing others to strive towards truth and a higher degree of understanding.

A human being that does not use his higher cognitive abilities and is lead by base instincts is not an animal, but an abomination.

@optimystic, ahhh i see your point and i love it, its as if you have to unlock the levels and once unlocked, free travel through all the levels is able, hence you saying “All of the fun lies at the bottom.” i love it and you commenting couldn’t have come at better time, some could consider you an angel

@nomeban, but could that truth that Buddha sought and some believe attained be that fact that questioning is futile and the purpose is to let go and be now, which is fundamentally what the universe is, for is that not the purpose of a teacher or guru? One who helps one get out of their own way by questioning them until they realize the truth? For it seems to simple to be the answer to the most sought after question. But as Alan Watts beautifully put it, “The answer most often lies in the place we never thought to look”
