I would like to know Phyllis and Sophia.
I am an insignificant speck of dust on one of the many windows of this world. A world that is only a dust mite, orbiting in a ray of sunlight, compared to our galaxy of billions of stars. I am a short sounding noise made to attract attention, only a beep in cosmic time.
Not realising our place in the big picture. We want to be the star attraction, taking a major role on the stage of life. We are taught our lines and how to play our part. This education fits us for our part in life’s socioeconomic drama.
Education teaches us what to think, not how to think. Learning from experience, gives us more than telling the time by the clock on the wall, the sun is a clock and compass. It can give us direction and tell us when to rise and retire. The sun shows the way to see the big picture in all its natural warmth and wonder.
Why not enjoy this wondrous world. There is no need to buy a chronometer to get synchronised to compete in the nine to five race of the humans or measure the fleeting moments left in our life.
What are you hurrying to, is the destination paradise? If that is what you have been indoctrinated to believe. It may comfort you to think you can depart this world, with its greed, hate and religious arguments, to an existence of eternal boredom. As they say, “ignorance is bliss.”
The sun’s radiant light waves take about eight minutes to reach earth to keep everything alive and we think Usain Bolt is fast.
When religion was invented no one was aware of the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes, in order of increasing frequency and decreasing wavelength: radio waves, microwaves, inferred radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-ray and gamma rays. Yet they say “I’ve seen the light.” These kind people that have “seen the light” may want to share this light with you. These evangelists are good people not evil they are doing what they think right. Like people water sometimes gets polluted but if the impurities are removed the water is pure. Trouble starts when others try to remove, what they think are impurities in people of a different belief or put out their ‘lights.”
Physics is the general analysis of nature, conducted to understand how the universe works. Philosophy comes from the Greek word, (Philia) meaning “to love” or “befriend” and (Sophia) meaning “wisdom”. Socrates used the word philosophy to mean a search for wisdom. It has a much wider meaning today. It now includes the theory of everything and has specialised branches. As no one can know it all, except a “know all”.
There is only one “know all” and we have been arguing on who that “know all” is through our history.
Who’s argument are we going to accept. Science has given us all the technology we have today. People in their ignorance often abuse the technology, do not condemn science for that. Religion has given us nothing but arguments. A believer, in a religion is not evil, it is their dogmatic beliefs that create evil. Ocean water is drinkable if the salt is removed.
When we talk of God first we must define which God. Discussing religion, find out what religion and what branch, school or denomination. There are so many it is no wonder they argue among themselves.
Jews, Christians and Muslims, have the same God but they fight. Even with in their own many breakaway groups they fight.
The Irish are admirable people. They have a nice way with words.
“May the sun shine, all day long, everything go right, nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you, and may all the wishes you wish come true.”
Split by two Christian denominations the Irish are a disgrace killing each other, though their god commands, “Thou shall not kill.”
What would I know, I would wait to be attacked, then run away, rather than fight. Fighting would be my last resource. Most animals only fight if they are attacked, or their home invaded and kill for food to survive. I have faith that people are not borne sinful or bad. They become corrupted by greed and hate. I feel safe in believing people are like any other animal. Give them respect.
