    As many of you know, I am a deep thinker. I think a lot about death, and I think a lot about life. Many of my previous posts have been focused more on the side of death.

    This is focusing on just the miracle of existence.

    Many many people take for granted what life has given them. They are either blind to how phenomenal it is, they are too busy with 'life' to see it, or they are just dumb.

    Life itself is an amazing thing. The fact that you or I exist is incredible.

    To understand why each person is special, and to understand why any of us are here alive today is still a mystery when you take into account of the creation of everything.

    This goes a lot into to thinking why did this universe become what it is, and how. When you think ever deeper about your own existence, your own life, and your own being it can take things to another level.

    Feel free to add in whatever you'd like that isn't flame bait.

    Just watched Life of Pi , excellent movie , a movie best summed : " against all odds " . Makes you think along the lines of what life is really about , i got no answers but the "craving for possesions " attitude in life really pisses me off , wish sometimes it was much simpler , but then reality kicks in and off to work i go to provide all my family needs/wants. Theres no meaning to any of it , were just clever animals and think too much , your born , you live , you die.

    Well when I start to think the value about Life, it's not that hard to appreciate the existence for it. The key challenge is coping with the negative/positive aspects about the cycle. Normally the busyness usually comes from overlooking the moments we endure every single day. Then you have the 'lifestyle' of how you're living. To one individual, he/she can be waking up everyday going to breakfast with the family and afterwards go out together doing something fun. While another individual is waking up from a hellish event last night that lead to the sorrow and depression of their decision(s). Coping with the harsh elements to life, will always be different to everyone because we experience those challenges from previous events in our lives.

    The appreciation for life itself comes from overcoming the impossible with the possible. If you're not challenging yourself then your appreciation for life will look bland compare to a person whose multi-tasking with a job, college, relationship, and religion.

    I'll just wait a day for the "Holy crap I made this I was so stoned" post like the last time.

    Otherwise, um, I appreciate life. I'm no Jeffery Dahmer.

    Correction, I was drunk and stoned. :D

    But lately I've been doing a lot of driving and have been stoned and I just daze, daydream, and think about things. I have always thought about these things and watch a lot of educational shows that explore these things.

    I always find the idea of life amazing. I actually spend hours thinking about life and the universe and send seconds failing to explain what's going in my head. But I find the idea of just how life got here to be a fascinating thought. I do look at it in a scientific way though, but even then it doesn't destroy the magic behind it. If anything I think it adds a deeper meaning to life, when you think that maybe life was an accident. That maybe over billions of years, life just happened to find it's way into this universe through just a series of events that happen to mix together to make that perfect mixture we call life.

    Yeah, sometimes I over think and get overwhelmed too. Like, my eye balls are cameras... Why can I see!?? Why do I have taste buds? Am I supposed to lick everything? And I am done here...

    EDIT: Why is everything symmetrical?? Why is there always a male and female version of everything that can make babies!? Now I am done... way to get me thinking again, punk!!

    Not all species require a male and female. Take snail for example, they are hermaphrodite.

    I like to think about what there was before there was everything and why did it all happen.

    There's a lot of theories that go on to explain this, many are based on a god of some sort, but then there are also the ideas of multiple universes where the fabric of the universe gets stretched so much by the gravity of a black hole that it touches into another fabric of a different universe where all that matter just explodes out as a big bang. But even when you take that idea into account, still where did it all start?

    ...At the same time?

    If that's the case, you might not be pondering life and its various mysteries for much longer.
