Thanks, and remember, rewrite and reread and rewrite and reread until it nearly drives you crazy, then if you’re lucky you can finally read through something you wrote, without being hung up with yet another thing you overlooked, that you thought you covered.
Okay, I think I’m done with it. Tomorrow will tell.
Appreciating the Human Mindscape ~ Physical Reality divide
I am a self-aware introspective element in the Pageant of Evolution
We create our Gods from within ourselves
We cannot understand an organism, or system for that matter, without understanding its environment
Consciousness is the inside reflection of our body, interacting with itself, along with the environment and circumstance it’s embedded within
An appreciation for Earth and Deep Time, billions of years worth, and the dance of geology & biology, unfolding one day at a time, and that it produced me, along with many other wonders
There is no Body-Mind Problem, it is in actuality an Ego-God Problem
My body has taken better care of me, than I have of it
Consciousness is the product of Earth’s biology, of interacting, of living, when we die, consciousness ceases, all that awaits us is the deep dark eternal sleep from which none awake, and it is good
yes, it is good, live your blessed moment while you have it to live
our after-life unfolds within the hearts of others, and it is good.
Isn’t that life’s challenge?
That’s the point of a considered life, introspection and self-skepticism.
I spent much of my life in doubt, some of it mighty miserable, though most of it pretty good, to awesome. Now, nearing 67 I have the pleasure of feeling secure in my choices and having chased down those fundamental questions all thinking humans wrestle with.
I don’t live up to all my ideals, but I still strive for them.
(although another good question might me, how well have your ideals managed to live up to your life.)
I’m aware I can kid myself, so try not to take myself tooo seriously.
(Though some of the ideas I’ve formulated I take way seriously ‘mindscape~reality’ and such)
In the end, it’s like the wink of an eye, they say, and I’ve noticed it’s so true, that’s why I really spend most my energy on today and trying to leave tomorrow for tomorrow.
