Star, Flag, and Bravo!
Hello again schuyler! I enjoyed the OP, the articulation, the understandings you have compiled, and the passion you have demonstrated.
Personally, I feel certain things, I think
I understand some things, but I still don't know. Through the continious sharing, giving, taking,
bonding, absorbing, and releasing of energy, compounds, elements, atoms, and subatomic particles... I logically conclude, through my personal
understanding and opinion, that all things in existence are linked and came from the same source.
Do we have a soul? What is a soul? Is "reality" an illusion? What is consciousness? Is "life" a cycle of reincarnation? Is there more for "me"
after death, or does my "physical being" simply break down to join new "physical beings", while this consciousness will never again exist? Is this
life right now the only life I will experience? I do not know.
When pondering ideas of Oneness, Unity, Group Soul (Memory Complex), Reincarnation, or "I am every person".... I am always taken back by people that
can sexually rape infants, babies, and young children. I can't cope with genocide. When people rape, hurt, injure, murder, and are cruel to other
humans, I can't believe it is all needed, all necessary, all a way to learn, or justified.
Such things do make "life" hell. If Creator, or "Us", or "Me", or any other being is doing such things, allowing such things to happen to learn,
experience, or develop, I say it's goddam time this "lesson" is over!
