  • Why do we struggle to find meaning?

    Is it because we struggle to put those feelings (or what we mean) into concepts (words, numbers, pictures, quotes, time, etc., if you will) (don't think I'm harrassing you be using the noun 'we' in my head question)

  • Could imaginations triggered by the human psyche impart the logic understanding of our universe?

    Therefore, impairing the logical mind to only grasp a remotely tangible comprehension of the celestial universe (all that is perceptible by the senses (logic being common sense, if you will)?

    Therefore, impairing the logical mind to only grasp a remotely tangible comprehension of the celestial universe (all that is perceptible by the senses (logic being common sense, if you will)? Now imagine if a relatively "simple" and emotional human had a concise mental grasp of the physics of the universe... Consequently, would the sense of ownership and imagination make it logical for a creator to limit human potential (and/or other life forms) to a less than "perfect" state? This is not just a question relating to God and origin, but more of the possibilities through logic to explain the unknown and need to be known or survival. A few of my written quotes to simplify this topic even further, maybe: It's better to have more questions than answers, because answers are not always yours... The imagination prevents us from making "perfect" sense of the world in which we exist. I will select the answer that best suits logic to the best of my common sense (if you didn't know) or not if the answers proves to shed no significant light on the question starting at the header. Thanks, good luck, and infinite gestures of good will, optimism, etc... P.S. I believe this question does cover a lot of intellectual grounds so I will try my best to carefully read through every answer with the most unbiased regard to each

  • Is it wiser to die for something greater than yourself or live for something of the same?

    All of my dreams and ambitions consist of something that is truly greater than I can wish to grasp, completely and honestly. It's hard to understand a world that is temporal but barely understood, and is conceptual but not fully satisfying the masses. Under the most ideal conditions you can conceive, would the outcome of your own demise be for... show more
    All of my dreams and ambitions consist of something that is truly greater than I can wish to grasp, completely and honestly. It's hard to understand a world that is temporal but barely understood, and is conceptual but not fully satisfying the masses. Under the most ideal conditions you can conceive, would the outcome of your own demise be for the greater good of women and men alike? Is one person enough? You could definitely go into the subject of killing for a cause, whether or not you think it's viable means to an end. I'm constantly hearing this quote, "Die for something greater than yourself" or people who want to die for a cause and/or kill for a cause ( "Army of one", If I may recall is the U.S. Army's motto). I haven't put too much thought into it, and would like to get your opinion on the matter. Thanks to all who thoughtfully reply. If you want me to shed light on my question don't hesitate to ask...

  • The government's true purpose?

    I believe it's to domesticate humanity.

    I believe it's to domesticate humanity. If you look at the laws you'll see the way they (the government) want us to act, which is constantly changing through ineffective legislation over a nation too large and growing to fast to be controlled by a selected few candidates. Still, they think it's wise to continue war on the "nation's" people and other nations at the same time. If they wan't you to act a certain way, speak a certain way, and put all your faith in them and, preferably, Jesus Christ simultaneously, I think it's too much to ask for and the government want's the same out of millions of people. Getting rid of people they don't want or giving them a chance before law enforcement gets rid of them is clearly a form of domestication and could be considered genocide, just not as straightforward in some cases. - How do you feel about the government's true purpose, and, really, how effective is it (in your opinion, of course)?
