I would like to believe our individual sense of awareness, or soul, does go on in other ways and in other worlds,
I think about this topic often and would like to add some contrasting thoughts and concepts that have most likely been stumbled into by many through
out the history of conscious human thought...
Also bare with me for this might get a little all over the place... but it would be awesome if anyone could extract anything and embellish... or
dissect and argue....
People say that current souls have had past lives, I do not know how this can be.
The exact system of body and consciousness which you are, would never have existed in its form, with its specific traits and abilities if it were not
for your parents quite creatively pro creating you,
and if you believe some spirt or ghost like soul was zapped into the embryo in your mothers womb, and that in your past life you were this and that,
then is there really any objective; close and meaningful bond or relationship between yourself and your parents?
If in your last life you were hitler, and now you are a new born baby girl to a proud jewish family?
(please dont say you werent hitler because hitler is probably in hell, this is one of many examples of a fitting analogy to express my train of
The human as the interpreter of this philosophical question, is biased in every way, for he knows everything but the truth, blockades and boundaries
of semantics, symbolic language, hopes, ignorance, how should we know how to feel about this reality and our existence in it, slaves of creation, in
our nature we must feel at home, we progress to heighten our tastes of nature and in turn our home...
I realize there can be arguments to the way my wording depicts the soul being injected into the embryo, which leads me to quickly realize the answer
to the topic of this discussion is one which is not designed to be easily known, but there is an answer, for something does occur, so we may further
speculate with caution..
so arguments as in a seed or nut of a tree contains the potential information needed to grow that whole tree, your argument for the soul, would be
that all potential conscious understandings, abilities, learnings, personality are specifically and individually a unique creation contained in that
embryo in that precise moment of time as the beginning of a physical/spirtual being. there for the informational and eternal essence, the casing of
all possibilities of what that human can be and do, is the soul?
the biological materials that were needed for your creation were provided by the process of your parents bodies consuming viable energy passing
through their systems, producing the sperm and egg,
I see that all energy is recycled, what makes up the body, including the sperm and egg are proteins and nutrients from nature, including the specific
dna and genes which is kind of the barcode of the species of life.
nothing that has ever come about on this planet exists separate from the whole. any biological entity that comes into being depends and requires a
suitable habitat up to some areas of deviation, but it is known that some biological entities are region specific requiring precise environments for
said entity to become into fruition, much like the technological inventions made now were only possible because those progressions and innovations
which came before.
are you the sperm,egg, and original DNA? are you your nutrients, your stored energy? are you what you eat? or is your collective consciousness an
indestructible part of the all encompassing energy grid? Do all apes have souls? or did we evolve the ability to live after we die?
why are you not an ant? how does one come into consciousness as an ant? or a barnacle? similar questions probably are what sparked the idea of
or our common most ancient ancestor made the right choices to bring us to human ness, but without looking back thinking of the harsh consequences of
never wanting to leave the biological temples and highly conscious abodes we erect for ourselves. And so now our whole lives are based around
projecting ourselves as far into the future as we can,
maybe the universe is performing this primitive facade of balls of rock and gas for us, and in other dimensions and perspectives the universe appears
nothing as it does from our scale and speed, like we are living in the imagination of the earth and sun, an illusive realm which is broken upon
and there is really much more organization, intelligence, purpose, and will involved
in the activities of the universe. Hey God can I get a job?
