@connerj93, What if the Universal Ultimate Truth is that there is no Universal Ultimate Truth?

If we can’t be conscious of being unconscious, how do we realize we were unconscious after sleeping or being blackout drunk? Or perhaps we were just slightly conscious?

I like what they had to say most of the time, just some things seemed like jumps or generalizations. How does not being conscious of unconsciousness mean immortality?

I disagree about the ‘1’ truth thing. For example they used 2+2=4 despite your beliefs. Why does holding 2 keys on a piano create 1 new note then? Two raindrops converge, 1 and 1 made another 1 thing. Or parents having a baby. 1+1=1.

I just want to live my life, I’m not interested much in finding universal truth. I’m at a point where I’ll await death to discover the whole truth and maybe “Experience” the whole truth in the afterlife, I don’t want to try to mentally uncover it anymore.

I’m satisfied currently with my own truth.

There is no universal ultimate truth. What is true for you, will not necessarily be true for someone else.

@rickyferdon, I suppose, maybe that’s what we’re missing. We all have this undeniable desire to chase the truth, perhaps the truth is that there is no truth. . . “Everything is something, but something is nothing?”

@hollowinfinity, I think that being unconsciously plastered doesn’t constitute for being unconscious in a sense of death, the mind still needs to be conscious to keep the wonderful biological systems running, yet all of those notions are unconscious and involuntary thoughts. I look at it as you can never know when you are clinically dead. Granted there are those few seconds or minutes after the fact that the mind stays active with perception. With a near death experience, the person witnesses consciously the death process, in some cases transcend and make it to the threshold from this life to beyond. It’s that moment where the brain and mind are shut off, shut down, that the mind stops perceiving this life and the body begins to breakdown. You’re here, then you’re somewhere else just not connected to the body.

I love the analogy of the lantern and flame from Buddhism practice, its such that the universe is the lantern, inside is space within, at the bottom is a wick that represents connectivity and your world/ existence. At the beginning of the night, a flame is lit. And that flame will burn the cycle of time that it’s necessary use is intended for, at the end the flame is snuffed out to leave only the smoke to dissipate in the space within the lantern. The next night, another flame is lit however, it is not the same flame as the night before, nor is it different in any way.

Your idea about the ‘1’ truth thing I agree with, great examples too.

@drakonerythros, I just got done writing a paper about truth being subjective and objective at the same time. There can be an objective truth to the question such as, ‘what day of the month is it?’ And the answer is something that is undeniable. However, it’s the moment of perceiving, contemplation, and judgement that happens in the mind whenever we’re faced with something like this of any caliber. A person can take that objective truth, refute it or even accept it, and create a subjective truth to themselves. There also comes a point when the person judging the truth, becomes that truth and ends up judging himself as a subject rather than objectively. If that made any fucking sense?
