"The universe does not give a fuck about you. You are a speck on its shit."
    #11159272 - 09/30/09 09:01 PM (8 years, 22 days ago)

This is a quote from a senile old man.

Although it is seemingly rude, and rather blunt... he has a point. People tend to think that they are something much bigger than they are, that they have a purpose, and a meaning, or whatever you want to say. But in the end really, you don't matter. You may matter to people, but that doesn't matter. You don't matter to anything bigger than you.

but omg wut do i do? get over it brah and have fun

I don't think it is universal for everyone, but Love definitely abounds.

Which specific people tend to think like you say?

How do you specifically know I, you, or anyone else doesn't matter?

When you said "You don't matter to anything bigger than you." What specifically are you trying to say? What are you talking about when you say "anything bigger than us"? Does anything matter to anything bigger than us? Just to make the point of how vague you've been, would a zoo keeper matter to the elephant she tends to and feeds? - probably if the zoo keeper decides not to feed the elephant.. 

Does whether things matter or not really matter or not?

...I'm not disagreeing or agreeing with the OP, just after some clarification.

What is it about being a speck on universal shit that makes us so worthless? What would you rather be? What is important and meaningful, if not us?

Why not?  If conscious bags of meat are all that even contemplate things that matter, then mattering to people is the ultimate.

Is it supposed to says 'the universe does NOT give a fuck about you.' ?

because if that's what it's supposed to say, then I understand your post.  If that's wrong and you have posted the quote correctly, then I don't get your angle.

Jumped in a river, what did I see?
Black eyed angels swimming with me
Moon full of stars and astral cars, all the figures I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and all my futures
We went to heaven in a little rowboat
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

One day you will get sick and die. Enjoy your delusional existence while you're still naive enough to believe in things.

What's the point of saying "enjoy your life until you die"?

Because many people worry, stress and obsess when they should be enjoying.

According to what that man said, that means I don't give a fuck about me, and I am a speck on my own shit.  Kindof circular, isn't it?

After all, I am no less a part of the universe than anything else.

Wasnt really addressing you

Just kind of the people that dwell way too much in thinking there is really a crisis between "i have a point" "i dont have a point"

THERE IS NO TRUE POINT!


if there is one, you are just another cog in that massive ambiguous "point" - and your existence seems like a nondual paradox between your idea of your body and the actual incarnate thing of the world that you are, thats how you say you live and die right?

Yeah???

At the current moment we do matter to the universe simply because we effect it. If we were to become extinct the universe would adapt and move on. Just like one more pebble in the pond at face value does not seem to matter how ever toss it in the water and the ripples effect the entire body of water.
