That's because today's society is more focused on external stimuli than ever, due to our mastery of the material world.
i know it seems egocentric to think of a life after death. but it doesn't make sense of 'life' to just disappear. the soul has to go somewhere it cannot 'die'. the universe wastes nothing. it is at equilibrium with its self and will always be as its 'design' is so simple and smooth flowing if it were any more complex it would cave in on itself.

Im sry...but can you please answer this question that I posted earlier as well to you...
Would you find it dissatisfying to know that before and after this life, there is no 'you' at all? Would you be ok with that?
If i cease to exist once my heart stops pumping i won't get a chance to think 'am i unsatisfied'.
i would actually be ok.
reason: i have learnt the clech 'you only miss something when it is gone'.
so when i die, my last thought (with a smile) will be 'i utilised every second i could with joy'.
example. if i have to do a chore and walk to a shop and get supplies, i always enjoy the fresh air and blue sky (miracle) here in England.
Or if i get fired, i will enjoy these last days of the old world order like its a holiday and not worry about having to get back into the worthless rat race.

How was this universe born? What is the purpose of our existence as a species? What is the nature of any and all higher powers that exist? What is the meaning of the date 12/21/12, and what impact will it have on this world? Is there any truth at all to Revelations, and can you specifiy the extent of accuracy? Is this the first universe to exist, and is it intended to be rebooted at some point? Are we, as a species, on the correct spiritual path for fulfilling any and all Greater Purposes that may exist at this time?
Please answer all of these questions as fully as you are able, for the benefit of all ATS members participating in this thread.edit on 28-9-2012 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)
all the higher powers in the world control there countries government and banking systems, the people you see have no control over nothing.

I have three
1) How was the moon formed, and why and how is it that the moon is both 400 times smaller than the sun and the sun 400 times farther away such that a perfect solar eclipse is possible, and 1b) why does the moon mimick the sun at opposite solstices?
2) Why does the relative size of the moon, to the earth involve the geometrical transformation called "squaring the circle"?
3) What is the relative grativational frame of reference for a pendalum and why do they behave unusually at different locations on the earth during a solar eclipse?
