The Answer To Life, The Universe, And Everything.
Posted on August 18, 2008 at 12:52
NOTE: This is not me proclaiming that there is purpose to the universe. Im not trying to force a reason to be into my head to make me feel safe. Im not trying to put anything in anyone elses head, either. Sure I missed some logic in here, such as existance in non-existance but Im no philospher claiming king. In my mind, I have got 30 GOOD years to live still, out of eternity in which I can be human. 30 out of forever. note postscript: I normally dont think this deep either, Im not one of those people who ponder life all day and think deep about everything xD I take life as it comes and live on the edges.
Unfortunately my answer isn't as simple as fourty two. I don't sit here typing bare handed though! I was reading "The Last Three Minutes"; A book which goes over possible scenarios and phsyical laws that could lead to Armageddon. I was thrity pages in and had to post a blog asap (Which I haven't done in a long time, so I apologize for the shitty quality, if it shows). Now, I do not fear, and never have feared death. Infinity (And spiders) are another story. Thinking about eternity makes me cringe, and mixed with the face of death, worsened it by a degree or two. I've just come to realize something, and that is what I believe the answer to be...
Just for the sake of it, let's assume there is no religious influences and all is good with the world (Meaning there is no hell, heaven, reincarnation, or any form of afterlife, as this post is coming from an atheist/agnostic person). The odds against infinity. Wow. You and I were lucky enough to expereince Life. It's a miracle we're here at all, instead of being left in non-existence for eternity. We get our several decades to show what we're worth, even if in the end it doesnt really matter. Everything that comes to exist, goes to cease. Grasp the opportunity of Life and accelerate. You only get one shot in a lifetime to live the next second, to decide the next minute, next hour, day, week, month, year. One shot at this life. One shot at now. However, all that goes up must come down; Perhaps you won't get a shot to live the next minutes, hours, days, or months (and you definately won't get a shot to relive the past). Do everything you want to while you can, while you live. Don't let Tomorrow slip by. I mean to say, dont sit on your ass saying "Tomorrow I will." Grasp it today and get moving.
I suppose my answer to life, the universe and everything is a bit different from Douglas Adams (However logical his answer may be :P). Mine is "opportunity".
