You will need to think about this hard. Dont jump to thinking just about would you want this but to be rich or something. I mean EVERYTHING.
OKay so. Why something when there could be nothing? Well There is SOMETHING! Is extraordinary isnt it?
But. Would you want to change it?
Would you like to live a life like this?
Would you like to experience a sense of time?
Would you like there to be a whole universe for you to discover? Or how about for everything to just be endless red light that you float in but dont actually go anywhere.
Would you like a brain programmed differently? you to feel like you are experiencing full lives but every second.
Would you like life to be one bust of pleasure?
would you like to start again and again. killing each possibility after a certan period but you wouldnt be scared because you would know in the long run you are in complete control.
Would you create an ego?
Would the creator start with an ego in the first place? I think a creator would have to have an ego in the first place otherwise he wouldn't know how to set up values for the life creations.
What would be your perfect something instead of nothing?
I'd like to be surprised.
I too do not spend much time (if any at all) thinking about ideals. I figure like this:
1) If I do not reach my ideals I am going to be bummed out.
2) If I do reach my ideals, I am going to bummed out because there is nothing else to do.
So rather than be bummed out, I don't search for truths, Nirvanas, the ideal life, or long to travel somewhere else. I am OK where I am. But I will always keep exploring, as long as my health allows me to.
Hey, keep up with your explorations - just don't get bummed out. OK?
Im mainly bringing it up to raise the sub question. Is this existence perfect but are egos get in the way of us seeing it.
So like this? mystery when you already exist. I definitely wouldn't choose that. I HATE philosophy. I just feel drawn towards it.
Drifting in a cloud of knowledge. But the cloud of knowledge is incomplete, just to keep me interested - for you can't have curiosity without mystery. And my body would be discarded, it's just extraneous luggage.
Oh and unlimited supply of cinnamon doughnuts.
how are you going to eat the donuts without a body?
doughnuts are the root of all evil-i love them, too. and frycakes and eclairs....chocolate covered cream filled, specialty ones for holidays like pumpkin for halloween, i could go on forever...
