We exist, that is the only thing we can know.
How it is exactly that we seem to have some sort of free will is about as hard to answer as what causes gravity? The universe looks like it is just trying to establish some sort of self-aware state of perfection, much like biological evolution. It's not too far fetched given the immense complexity of the universe already, that it could be part of some other vast complex structure like a living organism, or somewhere in the process of trying to achieve this.
What do you think?
Yes it has taken thousands of years for western civilization to realize and begin to advance its thinking enough to start understanding the transcendental mystics of the far east...

Each thought is a replica or hologram of the Big Bang with as much potential. Scale is our illusion. "The Tao of Physics" is a decent read that bridges mysticism and physics. Essentially, modern physics is getting ever closer to proving the mystics True. And what's True is IT cannot be spoken or contained. Infinite creation boggles us co-Creators as we tend to live with the illusion we are or can be separate from the whole.

I am truely sorry to anyone i offend here.
Just know, that i am not here for stars and flags.
Merely only to state my opinion when i see un-justified claims being passed off as truth.
Because, in the end, is that not denying ignorance? Which i assumed was the point of this site...
But latley i havnt seen an ounce of integrity come out of this site. and most of you cant deny that.
I mean if 1% of what people post here as truth were true, we'd all be dead by now.
And as ive said before, i have terminal emphysema, so ive had allot of time to think about reality from a point many cannot.
If i sound extremely negative and as if i want the world to burn, its becasue i do.
I will die in my 20's from smoking ciggeretes for under 10 years. i know it was my choice to smoke in the first place. But i can equaly blame growing up with 2 parents who smoke and in a society where companies can sell deadly poison in corner stores intended for ingestion and backed by adds aimed at children.
So i make it my point,not only on this site, but in what life i have left,to show others when ignoring fact is ignorantedit on 15-11-2011 by kman420 because: spelling mistake. as if it matters.
