    Hey.....regardless of your religon...people believe in God and some don't....but even the people that believe in God...like me....I always think about God 24/7.....this world is so odd....the more I think about it....what do you think is out there? I really believe there is another kingdom somewhere in this Universe....it's just so hard to understand what this is.:confused:

    Is God observing us most of the time?

    Facts: It's big and it's old. We don't know for certain how big or how old.
    Regardless- our concept of big and old is relative to our size and our day.
    And at the end of the day what the hell does it matter. Curiosity. Questions. The unknown.
    We all expend our lives in the flash of a moment in time. Our sun will go supernova in the blink of the cosmic calendar. Earth will be just another cinder in the expanse and the sum total of humanity's contribution to it all will not amount for shit.

    Yet- the beauty of the moment of creation lies within a flower that we hold in our hand, then hand to a loved one who's eyes reflect the wonders of the universe. And the care and concern for another or others without regard to self is itself the fuel of the spirit- the spark of it all.

    And that... makes it all worthwhile.

    The end. :)

    I'm curious what has happened between the time we see the light and now. The starlight we see now is hundreds of thousands to billions of years in the past. What if we find out in the future that at some point it all just dissappears? and ..we truly are alone.

    It's physics and chemistry... and time. Put them all together in a really big environment and something groovy eventually results. That's us. We're groovy. Well sort of.

    A flower grows. It's picked up. It's handed off as a gesture. There's such kindness about, and then there's such hate and evil about also. We humans have the ability to be kind or hateful and evil.

    And that's not necessarily the nature of physics and chemistry... it's the nature of physics and chemistry over a very long period of time.

    We're a dying race and a dying species. Our destiny is dust.

    Don't leave me deaf-dumb in this silent cocoon
    I gave my soul freely for a place in the sun
    I know that I'm not the only one


    The "silent cocoon" is this island earth.
    The "sun" is the initial light.

    Stardust we are, folks.
