I awoke with a start last night and immediately thought of the deepest thing a human can think. The age old question of what are we? where did we come from? And why are we here? You know when you think about it so hard that your brain almost can't process the thought because it does not know how.... Anyone know what I'm talking about?

It is very hard to describe the thought because at times it can actually seem more like a feeling than a thought. Like when you start thinking about what is beyond the universe and what is beyond that and then what is beyond that.....

The weird part is I felt as though the very thought had pulled me out of a deep sleep. I can't remember a dream at all, but I felt as though I had one. It was the strangest thing I have never experienced anything like it before. Usually when I wake up I don't immediately think about anything. It was almost as though I was thinking it right before I woke up. I must have been dreaming something really crazy.

I have been having some pretty strange dreams. The night before I dreamt of zombies and vampires and demons... I'm never scared of these things even when I'm dreaming. Is it still considered a nightmare even if you are not afraid or shaken by it?

I'm going to make a thread on this tommorow but I will give you a summary.
We are currently in the virtual world. Dreams and nightmares maybe what is going on in different dimensions to you and you can only see this once your consciousness fades in this dimension. When we sleep apart of us stays awake or else we will never be able to wake up, I believe it's the soul that helps us wake up. When we fall into deep sleep our five senses are cut off we become non-existent in this physical world, time and space does not matter for us any more. Our dreams and nightmares depending on the dimension our soul belongs to are actually happening there, if we wake up in this physical world we disappear from that dimension which is the actual reality. I'm not going to type furthermore till I create the thread in which I will explain everything in detail and how I have come up with this conclusion.

I disagree.

I think this is the deepest thought ever:


Probably the worst thing about having King Kong rampaging in your town would be the huge, monster genitalia.

Interesting Theory. I look forward to reading you thread. I have often thought of that very thing... What if our dreams are more real than we think. What if this life is just a dream, and when we die we wake up.... Deep stuff I dig it.

Exactly; some of the "big questions" in life deserve a tall cold one

I think the deepest thought ever is, was and will always be, 'I AM'. The thought conveys complete self acceptance, pure confidence in personal existance, completely and utterly at peace and at one with the self, just being. Innocent, like a babe just born, crying out as if to say 'here I AM'. And fully aware as an 8th, complete lucidity, the liberating end of the self and the embrace of enlightenment.

You have an interesting OP. When I was a young girl, I would sit outside under the stars and try to imagine infinity. What was at the edge of universe? Was it a brick wall? If so, what was on the other side of it?

Finally, my brain would shut down, and I could go no further. No body was able to answer my many questions.

So, I've stopped trying long ago.

The answer is there is no answer.

I let it go at that.

The thought that I refer to as the deepest thought ever always brings me back to a memory of the first time I asked those unanswerable questions. I was about 11 years old. I was riding in the car with my uncle and he looked over at me and asked what I was thinking so deeply about ( as I often did during car rides) So I told him I was wondering what was beyond the universe an what what beyond that and etc. He just looked at me and said "those are some very deep thoughts for such a young girl."

You are right, ladyinwaiting, the answer is - that there is no answer. However, as soon as we stop asking the question there will never be a possibility of an answer - without questions there are no answers.

When I awoke I felt somehow I was closer to the truth than before - like the answer was so close I could touch it. yet, as I reached for it the farther away it seemed. That is the best I can do to describe how the thought becomes a feeling for me.

Thank you for sharing, we seem to had a similar experience as children.

This is a HUGE HUGE deal .... who am I?

There is volumes of books written just on this topic alone, a branch of Nondual philosophy pretty much rests on continuously asking this question ...... it leads to Enlightenment.

Dont give up now. Keep at it. There actually retreats where a person goes to and asks Who Am I for 8-10 hours a day. The answer is not an emotion, not a thought.

also watch this youtube vid ...its about a kid who went on a retreat to ask Who Am I ...and the results of the questioning. Its in 4 parts, dont skip them or you'll miss the point:

I watched all 4 videos. Thanks for sharing.


I noticed another post here with a focus on who am I? My thought was not so much about who am I but more of what are we - as a species.... How did we get here and why are we here, what is our purpose and what happens after "here." It is very hard for me to explain....

What this guy talks about in part 4 reminds me of a poem I wrote....

As we close our minds to the lie
we must open them
to that which can not yet be measured in science.
We know truth on this earth
for the for that which we can define in a word.
The power of the word only exists on this earth
the word is defined by a culture.
Interpretation changes with time,
time changes the interpretation.
Science changes the word,
the word changes science.
Truth is always open to interpretation,
Knowledge is an open mind.


By the way... Is that you in the video?
