Default Have you ever thought about the flimsiness of reality?

I mean we're here right now right? We're conscious and we exist.. but if you trace back our timeline long enough... there had to have been a beginning right? Well what could have been before the beginning? From what did reality spring out of?

And if there was no beginning, and reality was always there.. how did it get there?

Even if you believe in God and religion... where did God come from? What was there before God?

It's a complete logical paradox...

Everything we know could just be some random blip in nothingness... and when we die and there's nothing at all.. who's to say there ever was anything at all?

What if there really is just nothing? It's terrifying huh? But it's good to be scared, because it's proof we're still here.

This here is the first problem.

We could assume that the nature of time has always been consistent. That it has either always existed as it currently is - or that it was suddenly brought into existence as it currently is.

But if we assume that the nature of the temporal dimension can, and has, changed - then the whole issue becomes infinitely more complicated.

I.E. if the temporal dimension was infinitely compressed, then cause and effect could be simultaneous - in fact, the cause and effect could be one and the same thing.

The questions you posed then become background noise.

It makes no sense that we exist at all. We shouldn't. Isn't possible.

I think I've figured out the nature of reality.

The answer came to me after a deep sleep. From a philosophical perspective, I just came from nothingness, back into reality.. so I thought.. if something can come from nothing once... If reality can spring up out of nothingness once, then it can happen again... it can happen over and over, infinite times.

Then I thought again about the properties of duality. Two opposite spectrums defining each other and creating everything in between. Light defining dark, creating color: which exists in between the two spectrums. Without both light and dark at both spectrums defining each other, neither would exist and neither would everything they create. Without dark there would be no light or color. Without light there would be no dark or color. Everything exists in duality. Nothing exists without duality.

Everything and nothing are existing at the same time and what we're experiencing is what's in between the two spectrums.

Everythingness and nothingness locked together in a cosmic dance, creating everything in between. It means everything that can exist will exist. Over and over.

Everything lives, everything dies, and if it can happen once, it can happen again. If it can happen again, then it can happen forever. But for forever to exist, nothing has to exist too. Life and death are locked together. Life has to die, and death has to be reborn.

In between the spectrums of everything and nothing... there does seem to be a design though....

In between life and death, randomness and meaning... there's something that survives that guides and creates order within the chaos...

Maybe it's God...
