While I see my own inclination to detach and rise above I have yet to leave behind the notion that by doing so I could be abdicating responsibilities
to myself and those around me. I have seen friends who hold to the idea that ''it just dosent' matter'' and see that having adopted this stance on
life soon spin off into their own world of ''who gives a #''. For me, this is a myopic self imprisonment.
More though, I am currently holding to an idea that we are here for certain reasons. What those reasons are specifically are open for discussion but
in general, thinking that we are here for ANY reason rather than just being here by some random toss of the cosmic dice just makes more sense.
And making sense of things seems to me to be the way to go. We have an abundance of people in the study of consciousness that find that making sense
of things is a fundamental aspect of consciousness. I suppose for some, that a modest level of ''making sense'' is enough satisfy this drive. For me
it is not. I need to make sense.
Ok that's enough as saying much more at this point would not make sense as now, having engaged in a conversation, making sense needs to be considered
in light of the conversation which if I continue to ramble on it will not be.
If you wish I will look for comment on that and be back after a while.
