How People Matter
    #1382189 - 03/16/03 10:57 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ok this might sound dumb or you may think its insightful. Today a mushroom taught me this.

I was alone tripping for 2 hrs. I like to be alone sometimes bc it is easy to think.

So I was thinking about how unless you are one in a few thousand or million, when you die, thats it, your affect on the world and human race is over. Nothing you really do has lasting impact. Your affect lasts as long as your life.

But then It showed me how the human species is like a huge puzzle. A puzzle that spans time and distance, it knows no bounds. An endless puzzle. In a puzzle tho, every piece matters, no matter how small. If you are missing just one piece the picture isnt right. Everything fits into each other. We are all connected. Part of a whole.

Just because your individual doesnt do something outstanding doesnt matter. Because somewhere down the line you more than likely will have an affect on someone that does. You could be the great, great, great etc grandparent of some thinker, leader, inventor, that changes the face of the whole thing or at least impacts it alot more than most.

So even when if you dont leave your own mark, you help someone to leave a lasting one. We all have a part in forming our puzzle.

A grain of sand in a beach. Alone its almost unnoticeable. Together its a landscape.

You can leave your mark by not doing anything, just being yourself, being a part of the whole.

So, chaos creates unseen order. That rather sucks for some people...  :smirk:

I live for Chaos. When you try to force order its a constant struggle. Chaos 0wnz j00 at the end of it all.

That is because people are scared of chaos.  But the universe is chaos, and that is why we have all the stuff we have.

I would be more inclined to say the Universe is Chaotic Order.

Thanks for sharing that, good post. I agree with Shroomism, I've always believed that there is an ultimate order to the cosmos, but because of our narrow perception it appears to us as chaos.

Yeah, cool post. Chaos is simply what we perceive when we can't understand/see/feel the unseen order that exists in everything.

The universe is almost a still pitcure of a chaotic, swirling mess of matter.



BTW: Where the F is Mr. Mushrooms?

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Chaos and peace are the ying n yang of life.

The best way to live
is to be like water
For water benefits all things
and goes against none of them
It provides for all people
and even cleanses those places
a man is loath to go
In this way it is just like Tao        ~Daodejing
