Yes, that is it. However depressing it may sound, the laws of the universe and what governs them do not change to cure your depression, you must
change to adapt your depression to it. As I said, I just took whatever was causing depression, and turned it off. Takes years to learn how to do that,
but it's just off now. Perhaps that's from my spirituality, but I have always found it pleasing to think that I would just end and be no more.
However, I recognize that, too,m is a purely homo-centric view, based off what I would desire from that standpoint.
One experience I mentioned was a mediative experience whereby I had removed from me all physical things. All flesh. I had no input. What a terrible
experience. To feel dead. Did I feel that I was connected to some greater mind? No. Did I see or feel anything? No, not at first. I was, for all
accords, in hell. Complete removal from the presence of anything. No sight, smell, feeling, nor anything. Just thought. And it was here that I
realized that we are but dust, nothing special. We come, we do, we end. The soul can end if God wills it, and its existence nullified. There is no
immortality but by what is allocated by God's will. And in that nothingness of nonexistence where only the self's thoughts are, in terrible fear, I
cried out for help to God. And from there appeared a light that was not light, and it said not with voice but with thought "I am that I am, you are
who you are, we all are who we all are". It then preceded to explode. and reveal to myself my own existence once more. Sight returned, feeling,
hearing, etc etc. I was full. I awoke roughly 2 feet above my bed, falling down. I can only hope it is from shocking myself into the air while
A lot of things will always be unexplained. But they are always being explained. Without any prior necessary need for things to be magical, I fail to
see the need for things to suddenly start being magical. No precedence, no cause. No cause, no need.
I never claimed to know more than you, but it is quite obvious I know a great deal more than you on this topic in particular. This does not make me
better than you, for all humans have the same ptoential, and potential is really what matters in the end. That said, considering that morals do not
exist and that things are for the most part either yes or no, then yes, I will claim to be right.
I have experienced things. I've described them here and made topics about them here. but I have never seen any undeniable proof that these were
nothing more than fabrications of my own mind. no proof, no claim to them being right.
What you are describing is known as postmodernism, and it is a miserable failure of belief systems and cultures that has lead us to the ruin that is
the last generation. This is why starting in the 90s people abandoned it and began returning to the core of modernism. Tis better to make your yeses
yes and your noes no that anything being possible and nothing mattering in the end. Post modernism at its worst created "generation meh" and at its
best created a don on a white page and called itself art. It's useless, and has lead to total stagnation on civilization and society. be something or
be nothing. Don't try to be everything and call it something.
