It's true. Ask any 150-year-old and they'll say the same.

The only thing we can take with us is our knowledge. But what good will the knowledge from this society be when faced with the infinite? The only knowledge that is worth anything is existential knowledge and knowing yourself.

So given this undeniable self-evident truth why do we pretend the issues at hand are so important? Why do we get so caught up emotionally in things that don't amount to a hill of beans in the grand scheme of things?

I see a great deal of fear and anger erupt over issues that none of us have any control over. Isn't it evident by now that this is exactly what we're programmed to do? Why do we continue to run our programming without examining the source code? Are we going to forever be biological robots merely reacting in pre-programmed ways? Or are we going to rise above the silliness of this society and become free individual consciousnesses that fear nothing and noone?

If you are active on this site then it's highly probable that you are a "seeker of truth". So what stage are you at?

"Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all. [And after they have reigned they will rest.]"

It seems that many here are still disturbed about what they have found. But that isn't the end, it's merely the beginning. So why settle for being disturbed? Why settle for fear and anger? Only brutally honest self-examination can answer those questions. Are you up to the challenge? The only limits are the ones you place on yourself.

(You didn't think this was going to be a 'doom and gloom' thread did you?)
