A few question, interested in everybody's opinions
Is the real world really real? Is reality real? Can it be that it's all just illusion? What is our purpose of being here? Why are we here? What is hiding in the dark and unknown corners of our mind? Is my mind the most powerful thing? Is it stronger than anything invented by humans?.....why do we have to follow all the moral rules that society imoses on us. I will be agood citizen if i will follow them, says who? I won't be even myself....Why is it considered "good" to be faithfull and "not good" to be unfaithfull"?Why do I have to limit myself? I don't want to hurt anybody, I just want to live my life the way I want. Why am I not allowed?.... I'm sorry, that's a lot of quetion.

Some more questions to get you started;

Religion - What does faith ask of me?

Science - has information replaced faith?

Technology - does it enslave or set us free?

Philosophy - What is the sense of being?

Psychology - Can we account for consciousness materially?

Ethics - On what is moral value based?

Aeshetics - What is the use of the imagination?

Politics - is violence justified by commitment to freedom?

History - What are we progresing into?

They might keep you going for a while.

Sorcerees, you should seperate Religion and Faith perhaps.

Faith is the inate knowledge, "truth", of one's Deity. It is the personal relationship of mutual love, respect, and support.

Faith is NOT open to corruption from outside sources, and a strong Faith is unshakable even in the face of self-questioning and doubt.

Religion is the way in which one shows their devotion to Deity, mostly to others of the same Faith. but to one's self as well. Religion contains the moral set, dictated lifestyles, myths and mythos, etc.

Religion, being a source of theopolitical Power, is absolutely open to, even inviting, demanding, of corruption.

Science can indeed disprove Religion, as it is a matter of stories, but science cannot disprove Faith.

Have you seen one two many episodes of the matrix lol no but seriously I think we all wonder that some time and the truth is these are question that don't have answers and you'll drive your self crazy tyring to figure it out all we have to go off are theories and opinion but who can really say some times I eel so trapped inside my own skin and I wonder why the hell is this body and when it dies will the essence that is me be lost with it and the truth is I'll find out when that happens so this is going to be really messed up but maybe you won't get your answers until the question no longer matters

I think the mind is the most powerful thing in the world, and i don't know if it is real or not but i believe you can change the world with just using your mind. Not like moving objects but you can use your mind to control things and change things and affect others.

I think everything is real because the only real thing I know is that i can touch and feel things like pain and pleasure. i think everything comes from that. everything you can and can't do comes from everything tangible.

Is the real world really real?
It's a real illusion.

Is reality real?
Be definition.

Can it be that it's all just illusion?
It's a real illusion, I said.

What is our purpose of being here?
Learning to spell correctly, for one.


Why are we here?
To prove redundence.


What is hiding in the dark and unknown corners of our mind?
Your fears.

Is my mind the most powerful thing?
For illusion, yes.

Is it stronger than anything invented by humans?
Wiser, not necessarily stronger.

.....why do we have to follow all the moral rules that society imoses on us.
You do. I don't.


I will be agood citizen if i will follow them, says who?
You are the only one that is here. Until you know this you are lost.


I won't be even myself....Why is it considered "good" to be faithfull and "not good" to be unfaithfull"?
That's what you were taught. Don't believe what you were taught if it doesn't match your reality.


Why do I have to limit myself?
Because you don't know how to control your power yet.

I don't want to hurt anybody, I just want to live my life the way I want. Why am I not allowed?
If you are not hurting anybody then you are not living.
