OK... I think I’m starting to get it.. Thanks Evasius
A star for taking the time to explain... However, I still don’t believe it.
Even if it is real and not just mathematical trickery, I guess the problem for me is this...
A river runs from the mountain to the sea... I can spend my whole life studying it. Working out why it takes the route that it takes, how many
different types of fish benefit from it, what type of sediment lies at the bottom etc... And then, after 20 years of studying the river, I finally
know all there is to know about the River... And then what?
I could just catch fish, eat them and enjoy life.
To me life should be Simple... I’ve seen too many end time/human ascension dates come and go. Some of them very believable.
I can use the Bible code as an example... Some very clever people (far far more intelligent than me) worked out that there was a mathematical code in
the Torah. This code could predict all sorts of things that have happened in History. I read the book and although not completely sold, I found it
fascinating. They found the assassination of JFK, 911, WW2 etc etc... all the major events in history was found in the Torah using the code.
Apparently people have believed, for hundreds of years, that there is a hidden code and that it is only now, with the help of computers, we have been
able to crack it... They then used the same code to predict the end of the world in 2006. Its cause? Nuclear war!!
Scary stuff eh?
Except that 2006 came and went, nothing happened, and the people who wrote the books, made the documentary’s, studied the data... well they just
quietly slipped out the back door!!
So... these super intelligent people who know far more than me, who studied for years, where completely wrong... They were merely looking at patterns
in the wallpaper and treating it as fact. Yes, they sounded Sooo impressive with their calculations and facts... but it was all complicated BS! They
wasted years of their lives chasing nothing!
So really, were they that much more intelligent than me... Is intelligence just about making things complicated... or is intelligence being wise
enough to step back and know when to just enjoy life?
Well, thats how my simple Brain sees it anyway
