about reincarnation; energy matter is not created or destroyed... the atoms that make up your body once made up something else...
Hi Ima. When you think about it, we KNOW where our bodies came from. Sperm and egg. The atoms in our bodies come from one cell splitting into two,
then ten, then 100 trillion...with the energy supplied by the food we eat. But, when we die those atoms will be ingested by other living things, and
that's as close to reincarnation as our energy matter will get.
Oh wait, are you talking about the energy that made up the atoms, meaning that just the energy made up something else before it made up MY atoms? If
so, I misunderstood. Please disregard this post. Sorry.
edit on 2/6/2013 by jiggerj because: (no reason given)
The atoms in our body(and energy) comes from the food we eat... Sperm and egg are made possible by the food the owner of said sperm and egg ate,
coupled with the DNA of their parents (which is their DNA)...
I didnt quite have in mind what exactly I was talking about, just thinking and speculating..
What I think is though that what we are made of, has been with the universe since the beginning, and will till the end ( if there is such a thing),
you and I were just blipped into existence for a bleep of time, we are more 'the universe' then we are ourselves,,, though I think the idea behind
life, is the universe creating the individual self, because isnt it so great to be someone? So in that affect, we are ourselves... I guess what im
saying is the whole new agey motto.. I am he as you are he as we are me and we are all together... So we popped up as life forms now... maybe we wont
remember it.. but maybe weve popped up before and will again... now going along with what i just said before that...that statement is nonsensical,
because my children popping up is me ( because im the universe, and so are they) and their grandchildren and my neighbors grandchildren popping up (
is me popping up again... because I am only me temporarily,, and all i am is the universe, or nature)....
now it could be that there is a God, and he is cool... and will greet us after we die and show us around the place and tell us all the secrets... It
could be he wants us to learn what he has learned, and so he puts us through these situations, and tests, and trials, and experiences.. to buffer us
until we are ready to join his frat...
it could be there is no god, and we are just momentary bubbles in a glass of water,, who form and pop...
could be the universe is one of many sets representing a computation of physical infinity in which you and I are singularities, place holders in an
infinite and eternal equation...
ones thing for certain..... I dont know.... and I hate not knowing.... this hatred of being ignorant is probably what created man.. and will propel
man into the future... I can try to accept my ignorance... I can try to sate it by thinking and thinking of possibilities, but there is no closure or
certainty in that... it seems science is the only way to get closer to some sort of 'knowing'...
if there is no god, we become god through science and our abilities via our knowledge...
