I've noticed lately how a lot of people treat this forum like a landfill for their special snowflake cosmology, which is quite often just some recycled and uninspired mumbo-jumbo. Sorry if this opinion bothers anyone, but lets face it: your feeling of how the universe is put together is just as much an opinion. I'm glad you've got it figured out, but inevitably if examined it always comes down to "its my subjective thing." Which is fine, but I don't understand what you're accomplishing by making it public (especially if you ever talk about ego). Even when it's not the philosophical equivalent of a highdea, the established ideologies contain a lot of supernatural extras. We talk about souls, afterlives, reincarnations. We apparently think of ourselves as greater than the whole of who we are. Our humanity is not enough, we must also have an element that extends into the universe and fondles all the other parts of the universe inappropriately. It's absurd to me. Maybe there is something else - gods, angels, whatever - but how do we assure ourselves that our notion of a soul is real, and not some arrogant ego-centric notion born of our own self-awareness? Is it that we are so insecure as to be unable to accept that our limited existence is all there is for us? Has anyone really done anything to deserve any more than that? Or even just that? So tell me then, if you can, why you might think you "subjectively feel" there is something more to you than a mind and body. Please do not tell me what or how. I want to know why you think your mind subjectively feels this. If it isn't real, why would your mind make you believe it is? Why isn't it enough to be who we are? Why do we want to talk so much while doing so little? Why do we need there to be something more? We have ourselves, each other, and so much more every day than the day before. Why is our nature to never be satisfied?
