People say that time flies by so quickly. I cannot agree. They say their childhood felt just like yesterday. I feel like mine is so distant that it didn't even happen at all. I feel like I have been here billions of years.
I have discovered many levels. Each time, when a few more are discovered I learn that there was more to learn. The way I see the world resets.
I begin to question to relation of human conciousness to reality. We claim to ourselves we are extremely evolved and technologically advanced. I don't think we've touched up even the tip. Our technologies are not improving our experience of life but simply being used to eliminate experiences altogether. This is not progress. We do not even understand our own consciousness or if it even really exists at all.
So the atheist and the christian believe the same thing. They understand the universe, reality and our place within. That is quite the claim in my book.
I was knocked into a strange place some years ago. The type of places others want to leave but where I now enjoy the most. A constant, unrelenting analysis of the framework of reality. The ability to teach yourself not only new things but how to learn them. A biological creation of a system compared to a digital AI.
