High Minded Talk And Stuff

  1. I was studying chemistry just now and had a random interesting thought. Before we start, I do not believe nor do I disbelieve in the existence of a higher being or deity. (although I find the concept of "god" to be rather childish and stupid but thats another conversation.) Anyways, while I was studying I thought about how our bodies are made up of tons and tons of smaller living cells and structures. I felt as though I was an entity ultimately governing the product of all of these living things as they mindlessly carryout their programmed tasks. They are completely oblivious to me and indeed even the notion of self awareness (or any capability of thought whatsoever). At this moment I had an intriguing thought on the nature of god. What if god IS the universe? What if the universe were a living organism which humanity, at least some of humanity, has very simplemindedly determined to be god? What if we are all just cells carrying out our own little lives as a part of this larger organism, completely oblivious to its nature or purpose? And I don't mean that just humans or living things are the cells. Literally everything in the universe: planets, stars, galaxies, black holes, you name it. I know its a preexisting idea. I just thought I'd spark a conversation about it.
    Let the conversation commence!  :smoke:
    (Fair warning, I tend to be a fly on the wall. I'll post follow up messages if I really have something to say but I generally don't)

  2. All I can say is: :smoke:
  3. I completely forgot about those two pictures! I thought that was absolutely amazing the first time I saw it and I still think that now.
  4. Yeah I like the theory I have heard it before but you just reminded me of it.. interesting to think about it like that.
