here i will start it off. this was a conversation with my friend over the interwebs the other day about the "big picture".
i know the "big picture" is just to fuck bitches and get money, but finish this for us.
We will wither and die after a short period of being kept content by shallow emotions, petty highs, and vain entertainers. Meanwhile, the universe will continue its unstoppable expansion and cooling until not even our meaningless existence is possible anymore.
Man, FUCK the big picture.
your constricted insight into varying human motives shades the fact that some may transcend spiritual boundaries and dimensional planes to escape shallow contentment by modern falsities, not by means of petty highs, but by abysmal thought and meditation. so my point is, by no means be detoured by your LSD or your MTV, but keep your sights on enlightenment of the soul, not the souls insignificance .
him-Ah the soul. Its not a concept Ive ever subscribed to. Everything can be rationalized. Even this transcension, though a more respectable endeavor, is just the result of a change in perception. No change in the big picture.
the big picture your thought embodies directly corresponds to perception of surrounding entities, so a change in perception results in a change in the big picture. as for concept of soul, life is bio-kinetic energy, and energy is neither created nor destroyed, only stored and released. so when our flesh withers and we die, our energy does not cease, but is only transfered to another suitable vessel...possibly
Yea like I said its a respectable philosophy but unless our thoughts reverse the laws of chemistry and thermodynamics our energy will eventually spread too thin for vessels. And if our thoughts reflect the big picture then when that happens there will be no picture at all.
