As far as boring, some of the problems people face and their helplessness in understanding their nature, leads to a boredom we call clinical depression, IMO.
Oh please tell me you're not suggesting that clinical depression is a form of boredom . . . .
Yet nowhere here does it suggest that boredom is a form of clinical depression. A symptom or an indicator, perhaps yes. But a form . . . ? I don't think so.
Can you be drunk and depressed at once? I have never been drunk, so I dont know =)
But I dont get depressed about life while deluding myself about it, since it seens the whole point of deluding about it is not get depressed about it. If you see it in a broader view though, as in, whole life, then I think we can put an "and" there =)
i think deluding oneself about life can end in nothing else but depression, probably because i am an optimist and believe that the truth about what life is ...is not depressing. therefor depression itself is an illusion over an illusion so to speak. some people cope with life by deluding themselves-some become become addicted to things in life or life itself, and addiction always leads to delusion.
Depression definitely comes from boredom. Or denying things are challanges rather than problems.
Depression is a problem of our ego. Its just as true as any other emotion we can feel. But the truth is neutral. No conciousness is neutral. enlightenment if you will.
I believe that we are already this enlightened being. As one. thats what consciousness is. All is consciousness. All is god. But we limit it down to our ego's for fun and games.
It seems that everything I seek. Its just pointless. It just turns out to b some guy that is easily debunked by science. All peoples complicated theories.. Theres really no point if its the ultimet truth you want to seek. Everything just seems to be a reflection of my doubts or hopes about reality.
I want something fundamental. Im getting more sure that there is no truth what so ever. That statement that there is no truth is the only truth.. but even if you make that statement subject to bein not true then it still leads back to the statement.
Look what I just found.. this always happens. This is my main problem. It keeps happening. Everything I find. theres always some crazy oposeing story. In this case the oposeing story Is actually scary.
I relate to what you are experiencing. For me it is quite a blinding issue after about 10 years in Protestant Christianity in which I thought I actually knew the 'Truth'. I now see that any person, or group, that claims 'Truth' faces the problem that they cannot prove that they alone have it, or that any other who is in opposition is false. This goes for religion, philosophy and science. Not to mention that all views do not rest on the same foundation... fact, faith, speculation, etc.... I think the best we can do to avoid the problems of absurdity, or total despair, is to look at the world and existence in terms of 'meaning' as well as 'Truth'... 'Meaning' leaves more room for subjectivity, and a personal view since it is more elastic than 'Truth'. 'Truth' is... that's it... it 'IS'... and even if someone has had it, or does have it, there is still no absolute way to know...
yeah definitely. I am finding this too. For example. Evolution. People stop at the idea. Life is here to best survive. But seriously. WHY THAT! Why would it have the nature to survive... why not evolve to best have enjoyment? Yeah, environment. but why even bother to evolve for that...
It has the nature to survive because, in the beggining of life, those who had their nature towards survival are the only one who survived =)
In other words, its not that life only mutates towards survivability, but that only such mutations survive. So life only changes if that change will increase its survivability.
