The utter pointlessness of it

What's the point of spirituality?

Cause I don't really see one. Enlighten me.

Certainly is.

Beholders have multiple eyes. And they can cast a lot of unnice spells. Quite the bitches they are, ugly too.

Ok. Please stay on the bloody topic. Outlined in my first post. You know what I meant. Don't pick on me cause I have no genitals.

What do you choose to see spirituality as ?

I choose to see it as having sex with beautiful
girls :wink:

To sum it up, I define spirituality as a way of
fufilling all desires and wishes.

If I use too many words they may just be interpreted in all too silly ways.

I am not looking for anything in life. I thought future lied in spirituality or any kind of belief. I choose not to choose those paths until I understand why others seek refuge in them. The only thing I expect from life is death or some other kind of ending. I just try to keep an open mind, a very critical one at that though. I have to see the motivations. Is it just fear of death? Fear of life? Fear of truth? Fear of not being to be able to grasp the truth?

Fear from uncertainty. You will never know. Maybe at the final end.

You don't answer the pointfulness of it. Why STRIVE for spiritual understanding/mindset?

No genitals at all? Lol

There is no way to say concisely what spirituality is for. But I'll give several examples.

Spirituality as a process of learning not to ask any questions that need not be asked. For example "What is the point of spirituality?".

Spirituality as a process of learning the truth about the truth. For example, that no truth can ever be learned about anything.

Spirituality as a process of achieving happiness, when on the way you find out that happiness need not be achieved.

Spirituality as a process of gaining control by surrendering control.

Spirituality as learning to laugh. As in "Funny, how sad the world is"

An important aspect of spirituality is that no thing is viewed as more important then another.

Finally, ego. That's a tough one. "Ego doesn't exist and I'll be the first one to prove it". LOL

Have fun. Genitals are irrelevant (to a marshian vooshoo tree).

Well, I'll answer them. I have a whole lot of time to throw away. The alternate answer to all of those would be 'I don't think I really care, it would not help much to find out' but that would be awfully boring, wouldn't it?

>1. Are you here for a purpose?

No. That would be awfully full of myself.

>2. Are you eternal or will you utterly end at death?

As much as I'd like to observe things after death without need for nourishment, I don't believe in life after death. I have enough difficulties believing in life before death.

>3. Does God exist, and if so, can I interact with God? Will God hear me if I talk?

Not a thinking one. Not one who created Life, the Universe and Everything on purpose. A creating force must have been there, but it's as much a creating force as plutonium is to a nuclear explosion.

>4. Is there someone out there just for me (for marriage, for friendship, for a teacher, etc)?

Exclusively for me, not anybody else, no. A contributing force to my well-being, yes.

>5. Am I doing what I am capable of or have I neglected my 'calling' in life?

I am neglecting pretty much everything. Life flows by without me taking much notice.

>6. Is there right and wrong?

There's right and left. Right and wrong exist subjectively. The eye of the beholder thing yaknow.

>7. What is time?

Nature's way of preventing things from happening all at once. (I like stealing quotes from Terry Pratchett)

>8. What is reality?

Something that needs to be filtered though neurons to make sense to us. The more neurons you have, the less unadulterated reality you get.

>9. Is a 'matrix' going on in life, or is it all a big, evolutionary joke?

Eh? Like in the movie? Please explain. ($50 I don't have on joke)

>10. Am I real? Do I matter? Why am I designed this way? Did 'Someone' make a human design and cause this design to be prolific throughout several ages?

My reality is pretty convincing to me.
Design by accident. No individual designer, anarchy let loose, pre-pre-alpha version of omniscient being? Design by accidental purpose, accidental design on purpose, accidental purpose by design, I like to keep the possibilities open.

Several ages? A blink of an eye relative to the, what, 10 billion years since the theoretical creation of this uni(multi?)verse.

For a marshian vooshoo tree you tend to be awfully insightful. I think you are onto something. For example, you are onto the entire pointlessness of spirituality. Why did you ask the question, if you already knew the answer? Do you expect somebody to pull you over onto the other side? What other side? You will be disappointed on all counts I'm afraid. Do you believe anything whatsoever has a point to it? If so, let it be known, I am curious.
