I think psychoside has ditched booze and taken up acid instead.
Mods please move to the misery forum.
I'd REALLY like to get DWCs thoughts.
I'm pretty content with life. I'm thankful to be alive and for my family (even though we fight, yell, or curse each other out).
CIRCLE OF LIFE ... Hakuna Matata B***es!
2. We can "contemplate our existence" because we have the mental functionality to do so, because that came along with evolutionary gains made in metal faculties that better allowed our species to adapt, and thrive, and reproduce. We do MORE contemplation now, because we've been so good at adapting and thriving, that we no longer think of real bad and real good, but the shallow and laughable "bad" we rich overfed, overcomfortble humans think of these days.
We have so many questions because we have so much free time to ponder them (i.e. to waste time on things not related to continuing our existence). Think of it as a side effect of being SO good at evolution, we can now spare a massive amount of effort once spent on just hunting and gathering and not getting eaten, on persuits like "whinging about life on the internet".And why is it that we have so many questions and no answers if we already know that it's merely to keep spreading the seed and keep churning the human race?
I assure you, if a Tiger was chasing you right now, you're not pondering your existence for long.
Sure there is, and the evidence is everywhere. We're thought our way (mostly) past evolution, beyond it. we beat the house, beat the system. Our brains did that.There's no point to having this intellectual ability and in fact works against the very natural laws that sustain life.
The fact they also brought along a lot of free time to "think deep thoughts" and all that comes with is a very modern, very American, very spoiled-confortable-life side effect.
Because they did not evolve higher mental functions as yet.Does an ant, a virus, a bear, etc contemplate it's existence and wonder why? No, they are instinctual.
Silly human egocentrism and hubris. We "MUST" be different/special.They continue their existence just fine without having the ability to reason, "Why us? Why here? Why now?" So it doesn't make any sense that our only existence would be to continue having children and perpetuating that life cycle.
We're not. We're just smarter animals who got the right evolutionary roll of the dice and beat the house, the 1 in a trillion winner.
Reading more into it that that is foolish projectionism or faith.
I'll take your word on that.This is fun.
