Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This will be the most important, awesomely-epic thing to think
about that you'll ever read!!!!! In short, I think I've deduced the
meaning of life using some common-sensical, secular methodology
through numerous thought experiments role-playing through 'the eyes
of the universe'.
Here it goes:
First, we have to start by answering, " Why is there something
instead of nothing?" Answer: because there is a fundamental urge to
exist that is greater than any urge to not exist. (I've derived
this conclusion from my thought experiment which I dubbed "The
Physicist Acting as a Real Estate Agent to Homeless Particles."
(Message me if you'd like to know more and become even a greater
loser ;) .
Anyway........so now that we understand the universe's "motivation"
to exist, how can we, the universe who just bought this plan of
relativity and recently moved in, ensure that it's own home doesn't
fall apart? Answer: By creating sloppy sentient beings with the
same fundamental urges (that is...they want to have your home not
fall apart either so they can exist alongside you) that walk
around, observing, deducing, and confirming these constructs of
existence that this gnasty real-estate agent just sold you.
Remember, as the universe, you're the captain of everything, so you
also bless these beings with a power to inadvertently enforce these
rules when they notice the slightest, undisciplined micro-particle
behaving inappropriately. (This "policeman" philosophy explains all
the oddities that we observe with quantum mechanics that don't make
empirical sense as well as their super quick, anomalous ways of
"fixing themselves" when caught! )
So back to being human, what is our purpose as being human? Our
purpose is to act as the "policemen" and "maintenance men" of the
universe by meticulously observing and validating it's existence
through ensuring that everything is behaving according to it's
rules, and to shout, "bloody hell!!!!" if we spot anything that
contradicts with these rules when applicable.
So, what about ethics and the stuff about good and evil, heaven and
hell, blah-blah-blah, we're taught with growing up? Well, under
this secular, but logical mandate, good and evil simply doesn't
exist and is the fabrication of our society's desperation for truth
and purpose despite its ignorance.
However, I will say this as far as ethics..............after all
the effort this universe put into creating you, it would be a shame
if you just decided to go and run yourself off a bridge, would it
(*Actually, concluding that it's "wrong" to kill yourself or
another human being on the premise of that it's simply "wasteful"
seems almost like sociopathic reasoning. But once you truly
understand the impact of my claim, it easily becomes a very
empathetic justification. If you consider what it is required to
make a molecular system that is as complicated, and finely-tuned
engineered as to that we call 'life' or more specifically
'human-intelligent life', the amount of waste is literally galactic
if you were to destroy it. I mean it literally took millions of
stars dying and reborning etc etc to fricken create all elements
that in turn are further organized to make you...so don't waste it!
Heck, that undeniable FACT contains much more purpose to me than a
stupid "God" ever can! (even if he were real) Hence, this explains
why I'm a "slightly serious atheist")
So if you've read all that, and still want to talk about it, then
let's go get coffee at one of the many hippie cafes here and shoot
