I can meet you probably however far it's that's absent of the reincarnation and demon things. Is that 80%? 90%? See, I don't think this is hell. I
don't think we're demons. I don't think we reincarnate. I don't think there's an after-life. Yet, I think everything else you said is right.
Strangely, I'm still my same greedy, self-centered, self-absorbed and impulsive self. I didn't detach myself from any of it. I don't want to sacrifice
myself for others. I want to be alive.
How can I agree with you, mostly, while still being a selfish twit?
Like you say, nobody can deny the ugly things in this world. Good is a chemical in our brain. Good does not exist, but neither does evil. There's just
a chemistry of things. It's weird to think that all we are amounts to some chemicals and physics. All the universe is a joke at our expense.
But it's amazing what evolution can produce, no?
Maybe the answer is hidden inside Hitler, Himmler, Gaddafi, Obama, Sarkozi, Roosevelt, Churchill and others. Maybe hte answer is inside everyone. All
of these supposed free spirits. This whole world is supposed to represent the heights of freedom. But is that what it really is?
I propose that long ago, a human cult that lived on mars was transported here to earth. The cult believed in freedom and was primitive compared to the
more advanced martian civilization. The martian civilization designated this planet a refuge for the cult and have watched us ever since. We remember
our time on mars by calling it Eden. But it's not Eden we want. We want freedom. We know that as long as we're alive, we will always desire freedom.
We're here voluntarily.
No matter what we say, we like this life. Freedom means good and evil. Peace and war. It means everything between the extremes of this universe. It
means we can even become extinct.
Just by living here, we have given evil and war a right to exist. Not because we want war and evil, but because we want to fight them in favor of good
and peace. But it's an illusion because without these things we would have nothing to fight for, nothing to live for, nothing to die for.
Let me just say that hell would be Eden. You got it backwards for most people on earth. This is heaven for them. Put them in Eden and they'll wither
like a dried up leaf in fall.
