Hi there everyone, Recently one of my members of my forum had posted this writing piece. Let me know what you think.
“At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing ~~ not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over. Each baby, then, is a unique collision ~~ a cocktail, a remix ~~ of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular~shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro~universes ~~ we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely fact of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare.”

“I often felt a sort of envy of human beings, of that thing they call ‘spirit’. Human beings have created a million explanations of the meaning of life- in art, in poetry, and mathematical formulas. Certainly human beings must be the key to the meaning of existence. But human beings no longer existed. So, we began a project- that would make it possible to recreate the living body of a person long dead from the DNA in a fragment of bone or mummified skin. We also wondered would it be possible to retrieve a memory trace in resonance with a recreated body. And you know what we found? We found the very fabric of space/time itself appeared to store information about every event which had ever occured in the past. But the experiment was a failure. For those who were resurrected only lived through a single day of renewed life. When the resurectees fell asleep on the night of their first new day they died, again. As soon as they became unconcious, their very existence faded away into darkness. So you see, David, the equations have shown that once an individual space/time part had been used it could not be reused. If we bring your mother back now it will only be for one day. And you will never be able to see her again.”
I always thought this line was fascinating, but I do see the universe as many many layers and some of them do overlap onto and in between one another, similar to a kaleidoscope,however I think there are also “gaps” and empty voids that in a way do not exist yet because everything is still unfolding in a sense, therefore the possibility of living both before and after death are quite probable. Apparently the universe is still only a child and it’s growth may just bring many possibilities that we will have the slightest clue how to measure. What if a part of us can never be recreated but another part/parts of us have always been there?? Maybe this explains everything? Or Nothing? I still think we are missing something so simple that we continuously look over it and I think it is within each and all of us and I’m not referring to energy, even though that is a part of it. It’s hard for me to explain exactly how I see this, but I hope you get the picture. Very thought provoking DB thanks for posting.”
