Stopped thinking?
    #1764386 - 07/31/03 12:01 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I remember back in the day I thought non-stop about life, existance all the usual cliche philosophical bullshit (and I mean bullshit in the best way possible :wink: ) and one day I think that I just got sick of finding nothing, and running into paradoxes.

I just remember coming to a point where I couldn't understand existance, but I couldn't understand NON-existance (you get me?)

I think what I mean is that I couldn't comprehend the idea of there being nothing, but I also couldn't understand how anything could exist, I dunno.

does this make any sense to anyone else? anyone else run into a philosophical brick wall like this?

I think that maybe I just got sick of wearing out my mind and being serious, but finding no answers.

I don't know.. I sort of allow both ways of thinking to exist together...
I recognize the ways they interact, etc. Like, I don't believe that there really is any meaning in anything, but I use this to decide what I wish to put meaning into, what's really important..
I haven't found a lot of brick walls, myself. I've always tried looking at things at new angles, new perspectives, keeping an open-mind all the while and ALLOWING whatever I was thinking about to be true, to be right... doing it this way, I usually find what I can believe is right.

You really have to eliminate yourself as being a seperate point of view, to forget that you exist, to think about such things. Me existing, being here automatically makes me biased to new ideas. So, for that moment, I forget I'm even here, that we're even here, so that I can look at that everything from an unblurry point of view...

It is hard to describe, I think, but the way I look at things works for me (hehe).

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
