    RE: What's Your View on Life?

    Yeah I always thought about life in general when lying in bed but I don't really think about it when I go about my day. It's curiosity really. I try to not let it consume me. But yeah, I just find it interesting how people will preach a religion yet go against it. its like my religion of the worlds teacher said to me. He said, "If you break ANY of the ten commandments then that means you aren't following Gods commands and therefore not a true Christian." No exceptions what so ever. anyhow, that's my thoughts.

    RE: What's Your View on Life?

    I have multiple views that I hold equally valid, though I do have my preferences if I were to choose one.

    Agnostic-- A god could exist, or it might not. Pretty hard to imagine the beginning of time, the creation of matter in the beginning, the limits of the universe, black holes and time distortion, and all that jazz otherwise.

    Psuedo atomism-- certain things were destined to occur at particular times in particular ways, but everything else is a product of free will.


    Life after death? Many views.
    1. Worst case scenario-- your consciousness remains stuck in your body after death, which is why I'd want to be cremated instead of buried.
    2. Reincarnation-- if all of the molecules that constituted your brain are again reassembled in the same fashion in a fetus...congratulations, you've been reincarnated. Please do scatter my ashes to the four winds so this may never happen.
    3. Time loop-- You're stuck in your own life history like a broken record. When you die, guess what? You get to do it all over again!
    4. Heaven/Hell -- I don't care which I go to. Hell sounds like there'd be more action, though of course more painful than heaven. Uhg, I don't want to be stuck in Mamby Pamby land (heaven) for eternity. That in itself would be hell.
    5. Dream/Matrix theory-- You've been dreaming your entire life, stuck in some cryogenic stasis or stasis field hooked up to a gizmo to preserve the sanity of your mind. Now that your imaginary life is over, go live your real life.

    I tend toward a modified version of 5 in regards to myself alone, but I'm equally open to all of them.

    Oh, I'll take 3 please.

    And nobody should ever want 4. Because if Heaven is bland, Hell is worse. Because it's merely a series of badly designed areas that never
    ends.

    RE: What's Your View on Life?

    5 just made me think of the matrix
    You're asking for historical accuracy in a series where men weilding three swords in each hand, pirates surfing across land on giant anchors, horses with motocycle parts attached and feudal-era Power Rangers are the norm?

    RE: What's Your View on Life?

    lol these comments are awesome...
    like 5 -6 years ago, i was with my parents in the car driving somewhere, an i noticed something and i just got caught in a stare.. and i was slowly having a self-realization about my surroundings and this was an awkward experience.
    at the moment i had thought i was being projected from somewhere far away and just inside a vessel that i can control.. and afterwards, i snapped out of it when i saw an attractive girl on the sidewalk....
    but the point i am sharing is, experiences are for our benefit. thats why we share share them

    RE: What's Your View on Life?

    Long story short: I believe everything happens for a reason. And I believe that even if we don't see the reason of something that happend to us or we don't' understand a purpose of something it doesn't mean there's no reason or the purpose was wrong. It's just we are not capable to see it. Like a 5 yo can't see everything because of a lack of experience.
    But also I do believe there's g(G)od, some energy and I believe we create our own lives. It's the law of attraction we need to practice to achieve everything what we need.

    You know, number 3 DOES sound the most favorable, but even better when you sprinkle over a little bit of number 2. What happens is that you start your life over, but you retain all of your past memories and knowledge almost vividly. I have dreams of this happening from time to time and it sounds very interesting.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    I like this idea. However I wouldn't be so keen on living my life(s) like this.
    Imagine that your life is full of cruelty or misery or pain and so on... Would you like to remember those? Forever? I wouldn't. Sometimes forgetting is blessing.
    That's why I could choose just one option. Even two of them. I've got my own visions and I know they are definitely not true, because how am I supposed to know that..?

    You see, with the knowledge of your past experiences, you could use that to your advantage to augment things about you which you love or enjoy, change some things about you which you regret or hate, and use your wisdom and maturity to change other peoples' opinions of you. I realize that with knowledge you may not be able to change some things. Knowledge is power if applied correctly.

    Yes, you are absolutely right! But even in this life your knowledge doesn't always make you cleverer and stronger. Why should it be this way in the afterlife/another life?
    What's even more, past experience can make you feel BAD, can affect you adversely. Like if you were abused in a childhood, that would leave a mark on you, whatever you say. And imagine this luggage of past lives, past memories, experiences, which you cannot get rid of. You have to live with them day after day and fight with them, not to let them to take control over you.
    So knowledge of a past may be a blessing but also a curse. And in life nothing goes just one way, everything coexist.
