Religion or Human philosophy.......
Merely, it is simply down to.... Cause
No I am Not
Religious person or belong to any Religious Sect!
If people choose to believe I am Religious they are either misinterpreting my words or deceiving themselves.
The whole Argument is really dependent on peoples definition or interpretation of the Component
Is "Life" the Result or the Cause
What is "Life"???
Is "Life" an External and Internal (Inner & Outer) Source defined as "Consciousness
" or is "Life" just an automatic chain of events with
no Awareness without Knowledge and Intelligence ???
If Life is Not "Awareness" or "Consciousness" then I guess there isn't any "Awareness" or "Intelligence" and No person is "Aware" of
anything, so what causes or allows you & me to know you/we exist???
Life is Not a bunch of Atoms (often a human analogy denying Awareness or Consciousness ) but perhaps the the cause and driving force behind what has
Life being the Cause
of everything rather than the result of emptiness !
I find that all these arguments put forward by different Groups
of humankind, seems to be about the Acceptance
of "Consciousness" and
"Intelligence" within their experience or Universe.
Very Strange human behaviour indeed.... LOL
Perhaps the Truth
lays in the Definition of what Life actually is, rather than the different Groups
beliefs what Life should be
Its a bit Like the Chicken & Egg syndrome!
First Consciousness/Awareness or Materialism ???
What is Materialism ???
And what is Energy ???
And More Importantly..... What is Life.
Did "Life" Produce both Material and Energy ???
Or did Material Produce Life ???
If all came from energy, as some claim, then how did energy come into being and more to the point, what caused all this to happen in the first pace
A human interpretation of "Evolution" or a human Interpretation of a god ???
I doubt it !
So to find the answers that most Religious
and Non Religious
people can't accept, perhaps we will find these in ourselves if we can be
honest to ourselves ???
There are only Two Basic Conditions
; The "Observed" and The "Observer"!
1. The "Observer
2. The Observed
...... Your body and the Environment including all other biological forms.
I Claim it is the Observer (Consciousness Collective) that produced All and that Emptiness did Not Produce All!
