How far would you go to ask a question? How far would you go to find the things that you don’t know or don’t understand? At what lengths would you search for the answers you wanted in life? What price would you be willing to pay for the truth?
They say curiousity killed the cat.
They say there are some things we aren’t meant to know.
I say I’m not a cat.
I say if I’m not meant to know…then I won’t be able to find it out.
There is no doubt about it, there is a whole world out there that we have yet to discover and rediscover let alone a universe to dwell upon. There is just so much beauty and horror that we haven’t seen before. Haven’t felt the empty terror of black hole. Witness the awesome death of a star gone nova. We haven’t fully explored the still abysmal depths of our ocean. Haven’t answered the questions of civilisations past.
So many things we don’t know.
So little time.
How can you say we aren’t meant to know when we’re only limited by time?
In the end for me, its about the persuit of a truth, the quest to find out more about everything. Find out the memories of the past. Discover the world of the present. Relive an existence for the future. It’s all about pushing to know and never stop finding out things about the world we live in.
I realise now that it’s not hard to understand why alot of scientists hold very little belief in any spiritual matter. It’s not hard to see why I have had so little trust in organised beliefs. We live a life where we spend our days breaking down the universe to it’s most basic core to find absolute truths. Like the strings that make up the quarks that make up the atoms or the nucleotides that make up the DNA that makes up a living being.
We try and break down the universe to a single equation or define our emotions to the series of chemicals and electrical transmissions in our brains.
The wonders that held people in awe for centuries are now nothing more than a series of mathematical or chemical equations which are easily explained. Those wonders don’t hold the same magic for us anymore. That doesn’t mean that we don’t find wonder any more. As I was saying…there are worlds out there that we have yet to discover, yet to find out. There is a whole world behind the atoms that is as beatiful as it is scary. A world behind our genetic code that opens a whole new door of possibilities that are equally wonderous as well.
Curiosity and truth doesn’t destroy your sense of wonder.
It changes it.
So what if we may not stop and smell the perverbial roses? So what if we don’t savour the food before we swollow. Maybe it’s that we enjoy beauty on a different level, it doesn’t make us any less appreciative of the world.
It’s just a different world that we see.
A different universe to live in.
