Meaning of life? It's a Monty Python movie.
As for questions that could be more interesting to me, would be..
"Why does existence exist?"
I can come back to the 'meaning of life' after I find the answer to the more existential question, first.
I mean, why does anything have to exist? Why can't existence simply just 'not exist' - but instead, there's all kinds of 'stuff'? What's the
point? Especially, since .. 'to be eternal, life has to constantly renew itself', so nothing is permanent - and every form that exists, is
temporary, and thus, illusory. Every star, galaxy, nebula, solar system, planet, country, city, building, computer and human body - everything that
you can see, is just temporary. It all changes form, it all dies, ceases to exist, just to create new forms, which then repeat the cycle.
I don't know if "life" has a "meaning" (this should be elaborated a bit, because otherwise, it's kinda confusing), and whether the old
religions, laws of Karma, life plans, astrology, reincarnations and such enter into it, but even if there is such a meaning, like evolution of the
spirit, it just brings more problems and questions.
It's like - if we have to 'level up' by incarnating and learning about our mistakes, dutifully paying our karmic debts so that we wouldn't have to
live with awful deeds in our conscience, and eventually evolve beyond anger, hostility, hatred, violence, wars, and so on - and become good human
beings (the Cosmic Messenger that visited this planet a couple of thousand years ago by incarnating into an artificially inseminated body was a good
example of a True Human), then what?
It has been said that there are many levels of development, and that beings of this planet are approaching the latter half of the first level. It has
also been said that the first level beings do not really HAVE many duties, except to 'evolve spiritually' and experience life and pay karmic debts
(or relieve themselves from their own bad deeds by experiencing pain and suffering), but that the second level already brings some obligations to look
after and take care of the younger, evolving brothers.
The third level usually expands those obligations and responsibilities into larger levels, like whole solar systems, and so on - I think the Cosmic
Messenger was actually a level three being, and responsible for this solar system (which would explain why he is also the master of the
So it has been said, I mean.
But I don't know .. what kind of a meaning is THAT anyway? I mean, you evolve and 'level up' so that you can get to be better and stronger, so you
can raid.. I mean, so you can evolve into a higher being that can then help the lower beings to also evolve.. but to what end? What's the point in
all this spiritual evolution, why would anyone ever evolve?
Even the level three beings - what's the point of taking care of a solar system just so that some jerks can evolve into non-jerks, and then taking
care of things so that all this can just go on in an endless (?) cycle?
Couldn't the Universe have been designed in such a way that the physical plane didn't even exist, karma wasn't necessary, pain wouldn't be needed
and thus wouldn't exist, and everyone would already be level 80, I mean, would already be evolved from the moment of their creation? Or at least they
could evolve somehow comfortably and softly? Why all this pain and suffering? I can never see the point in all this, no matter how much I think about
Karma and incarnations (and Karma has its own problems, that I can't seem to get around)..
Paracelcus said, or at least it has been claimed that he said or wrote the definition of an 'angel' (after visiting the astral world).
His definition of an angel is: "A being that is very highly evolved without ever having incarnated into a physical form".
I am paraphrasing, but the main jist of it is, that what Paracelcus allegedly calls 'angels' are beings that have never lived in a physical
This begs the question: why do WE have to suffer all this physical level crap, if other beings can just cruise around in higher planes, never having
to set foot here? How is that FAIR?
(And if we think about 'fairness', I have another question: how is 'celebrity' fair? I mean, a lot of people seem to think that they will get
their turn in the spotlight, but if you stop and consider the mathematics of it, it might be a bit shocking.
There is always a small number of celebrities on any given planet (because if everyone is a celebrity, no one is), which means, that the majority of
every planet's population will not be a celebrity at a given moment.
Now, if we consider Terra, and we think that there are for example a million celebrities, we can realize that out of a seven billion people, if a
celebrity lives a hundred years, some individual soul has to wait tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or millions of years before even being
given a chance at incarnating into a celeberity life! How is THAT fair? Aren't most souls already so 'evolved' by that time, that they no longer
have any need, urge or wish to be celebrities? So some souls simply -never-in-the-whole-eternity- can experience being a celebrity!
Am I missing something here, or is the Universe an incredibly sadistic torturer instead of a fair and an impartial, loving Father? I don't mean to
blaspheme, but dang, sometimes it just looks like fairness and equality don't really even exist.)
I hope I didn't digress too much.
