why is the reality i'm concious of, manifested the way it is?
why not in some other sort of way, or system?

don't do this man. edit that and take the pic out, think of how hard you are making it on the people with modems. didn't you read rules on posting pics? they said keep them small, it's only polite.

why is the reality i'm concious of, manifested the way it is?
think of it this way... the reality of this world is the "why not" of a different reality... whatever reality "IS" (this one that you are experiencing) could be viewed as wierd or different to a different reality... so saying "why this one" is just saying "why not this one"

why not in some other sort of way, or system?
because its just how it is... call it random of call it fate... you are here now... i mean, why werent "YOU" as in your individual "SELF" born in 1476? because thats how it happened. maybe it just happend.. or maybe it all comes together as a peice of the puzzle for a plan.. or maybe whatever, thats just what happened

I PITY THE FOO WHO DONT THINK FO THEMSELV

in all ten directions of the universe, there is only one truth. when we see clearly, the great teachings are the same.
what can ever be lost?

my fuckin lateralus cd!!!! (please rephrase or shine some light)

what can ever be attained?
depends on your belief or what your see as the thing to attain... not anything...,,, enlightenment, self awareness, whatever but i believe its all the same thing... knowledge its the thing to obtain, some might say power
(ya know what they say.. knowledge is power hehehe)
knowledge is my anti-drug

if we obtain something, it was there since the beginning of time. if we lose something, it is hiding somewhere near us.
look: this ball in my pocket: can you see how priceless it is?

eh? i think i get thet first part... but the ball thing?

I think maybe reality was made just complex enough to support self reflecting life. Maybe existence and forms of life could be a million times more complex?

why is it the way it is? it has to be something, and this is the something it is.
