Coincidentally I was going to start a new thread about a similar experience I've had a myriad times while contemplating abstract concepts like the
Universe, God, etc.
Take for example the idea of the Universe. What seems to happen from my experience is that you start to conceptualize these thoughts, images, sounds,
etc., of a stellar-black landscape stretching into infinity dotted with billions of scintilating stars. You mind trails on moving through this
landscape at incredible speeds and suddenly you get to a point where you just can't get past.
I've speculated that perhaps as a human with finite intelligence, I'm somehow arriving at the far reaches of where the human brain can function.
Sort of like reaching the end of a dead-end street. You feel compelled to move past this point but you just can't do it. Something is "blocking"
you and then you forget.
Some people I know have said this is analogous of being in The Matrix
. Or its a phenomenon related to the soul trying to ascend
But let me put down this pipe now and see if anyone else has had a similar experience or can possibly shed some light into what this is all about.
