"A splinter in your mind" is a great analogy.
Perhaps it's nothing more than a delusion.
I don't think so.
How do you find something if you don't even know what you are looking for?
It finds you!!
"No matter where you go, there you are".
"Why do you do it Mr. Anderson"? '"Why do you persist"?
"Because I choose to".
I know that I am quoting a lot of movie phrases, but they stick in my head and make sense in a weird kind of way.
There are processes continuously at work in the background of our consciousness, and some people are more attune to them than others.
For some reason, there are those that can extract bits of relevant information from everyday life, and from patterns. Some people are aware of those patterns even if only subconsciously.
The lives we live, and the information we gather, all lead to one inexorable fact.
We are more than our collective pieces, and we are more than just human.
We are aware of our existance and aware of the universe around us.
Forever stuck in a world where the majority of people are stuck in the here and now and can barely see five feet past their own faces.
We are alive, in our bodies, in our buildings, in our town, in our district, in our county, in our state, in our country, on our continent, on our planet, in our solar system, in our galaxy, in our expanse, in our universe, in our dimension, in the other eleven dimensions, in all aspects of time, space, and realities, were the physics may or may not make reality possible.
For all time, we have existed.
Since the dawn of the universe, to its collapse, we have been here.
What difference does it make when, the point is we are here.
Not a moment passes by when we are not aware of this.
This is what we see, and are looking for.
This is what has found us.
Race, religion, sex, etc... All immaterial.
Human or otherwise, immaterial.
Physical or not, immaterial.
Life = Relevant
