I find myself reading all these posts and just combining everything. I just watched a TED talk saying that vulnerability is a good thing. Also, I keep finding the same themes about going with the flow and not giving a fuck, which leads to change and vulnerability. HE has let me embrace change and think of everything as an adventure.

People have this desire to always be certain, but there really is nothing certain in this entire fucking universe. Godel and Heisenberg put an end to all of that with the uncertainty principle and Godel\\\’s theorem. Whenever people are uncertain they tend to feel vulnerable and try to defend themselves, like in a religious debate. There may be evidence of certain religions, but there is no certainty in any religion. This isn\\\’t really a question I just wanted to share. I\\\’m not really good at writing either. :)

I saw the video about vulnerability too, a masterpiece. What I have learned from that video and observation is that all of those new concepts, new ideas, new dogmas, etc. are actually tools for us (the people) to cope with another fellow human being, the fact that there’s no certainty is actually the engine that keeps us searching for answers :D

Uncertainty could be the most scary thing for some, and the most wonderful thing for others. It teaches you so many things! Most of all, it teaches you to let go of all of your ‘attachments’. People find themselves so attached to things like objects, people, places, their state in society, their friend circle, etc. The idea is to find the divine strength within you that makes you invulnerable even if you lose everything. Uncertainty is beautiful, once you embrace it, you feel an immense amount of freedom and lack of attachment!
