ive been wondering if we can even figure out everything about the universe we can see the start of the book aka the big bang but if the book is still being written and we are a chapter in that book titled humanity are we even meant to figure out anything about the universe wouldnt it be beyond us to even ponder that question if we are just a product of stars and what not how can we even see the author we are just a part of the story if we are special and are meant to see the start to the end we would have to out live the universe right

@fupadance, But what if there is no “writer,” What if we aren’t special? What if we are here by chance, and we are completely unimportant in the grand scheme of things?

There is no truth, only perspective

I mean if you are unimportant in the grand scheme of things, arent you kept out of the grand scheme i mean how often do the pawns get to see the whole plan. If this is true then we cannot ever figure out the ultimate question of why because wouldnt we have to out live the universe. If we did out live the universe that would make us the center of all things making us the grand scheme. I highly doubt that we are which in turn that means that we cant ever know why doesnt that mean that science can solve lets say 99.9 percent of the questions of the universe over time but could never find that last answer to that last question because we are unimportant thus kept out of the grand scheme of things with no way of figuring this out.

Looking at it all from a we are one point of view, us being just a piece/ form of life/ existence/ whatever the fuck is going on, it seems like it’s sort of figuring itself out as it all moves toward who knows what (some sort of balance maybe??).

We tend to see ourselves as rather separate from everything around us but I see us as an extension/ piece of everything else. These thoughts and questions we have about everything would therefore be part of it all as well.

Words don’t do these thoughts much justice as far as granting an equal perception. Just some shit that makes sense to me from reading about the nature of the universe and the mass extinctions/ repopulations, etc.

When we die we are still part of it all, just not observing from a human perspective with human consciousness and senses. I feel like the world is building these things to better observe itself in different ways to move forward. …Or maybe I was a fool and I end up in hell for eternity, wouldn’t that be a bitch.

It’s nice to think and talk about these thing that generally don’t matter to an extent… But it’s better to jus live life instead of thinking about why youre even living… Even if you found the answer tomorrow will still be the same.
