Idea (its a work in progress)

•June 8, 2009 • Leave a Comment

My idea. I’ve mentioned this to couple of people and even talked about it with a couple others. I’m finally posting it and to be honest it’s kind of a crazy idea, but then again it wouldn’t be as interesting of an idea if it were a normal one. This idea is one of if not the biggest reason i started a blog in the first place. Also, keep in mind that this is what i believe to be a possability of our existance.  I also beleive that we won’t find out who was right (if anyone was) about our existance until we die (or leave this world, if you didn’t want it so blunt), if even then.

I believe in the soul. We each have souls. Animals have souls as well as trees.I don’t believe in a single entity or God. I believe that we as physical beings live in a co-existance with a meta-physical counter part. Our souls. We live in a co-existance with our souls. I believe that this “god we wish to beleive as our creator is actually a community of metaphysical beings.

I only believe in co-incidense in relation to other peoples beliefs. I beleive everything happens for a reason.I beleive that this community of souls, write our stories as we live them. Each of our lives is a story. Each story intersects with other stories to make another story…Let me explain: Each of our lives is a story. We live to story of our life in this time and age. The story of fio. The story of Jared Leto, of Barack Obama, the story of you. Your life is one story, and there are sections of your life you can consider as chapters. You just got out of a 3 year relationship, thats a chapter completed, you finished school, thats a MAJOR chapter completed, even transitioning from one year to the next could be a progression in your chapters. Each of these chapters could be considered stories in them selves. Stories that combne to create the story of your life. But your not the only person involved in this story. The people around you they have they’re own stories, all these stories intertwine perfectly to bring you where you are. Each second plays a part in these stories, the stories of you, the stories of  your relationships with the people around you. Me and my best friend Chantal, our relationship is the story of Phiroze and Chantal. We’ve been friends for a while and we’ve gone through a lot. We’ve had distinguishable chapters in our friendship (which perfectly tie into our lives). My good buddy Graham, me and this man have definately been through some shit, distinguishable chapters again. These two friends of mine were to seperate worlds for me, and then we all started hangin out, then began the story of the three of us, now this story has had an interesting experience, completely different than the other two, which are still going on but now are all tied together. Imagine this pattern: the story of the town you live in, the story of your country, the story of your home, earth, and it could possibly carry to our solar system and beyond.

I believe that if there were an alteration in these stories, even the slightest thought, things would turn out differently. However we aren’t capable of time travel so we can’t really prove that, and if we were, we would seriously mess shit up. I’m getting off topic.

Think I’m crazy yet? If no, cool. If yes, humor me and keep reading please. Heres the scary part about this idea. Us. Human beings, evolved from generations upon generations of homonids and beyond. Go back to when life just started on the earth, whatever happened, happened and that moment is gone. But that moment where everything started, I think it was planned. This vast community of souls started a story, this story is still being told now in our existance. Let me approach this a different way, have you ever just sat there and stared at your hands? If you haven’t, take a moment right now to look at them, take your time, look at them…look at the functionality of your fingers…picture the muscles underneath your skin working with other parts in your arm…controled by you shoulder…and all the way up to your mind controlling it. I hate to break it to you like this but you are a biological machine. What YOU are, is whats in your mind.When you are born your limbs have to still develop your body has to grow, and as you grow you get the hang of using your body and soon can co-ordinate your body to use tools or operate something else. Like riding a bike. Your mind co-ordinaes your body which operates the bike. Yes your body is you, but its because its an extension of your mind.

This part is more positive. So far I’ve said that we, we being us now in our physical state, live in a co existance with our metaphysical state. Because all we’ve known is a physical state, its hard to imagine a meta physical one. But we can understand that such an existance could be potentially everlasting. Now compare a phyical life, to a metaphyical existance. The word life implies it has an end. Existance implies that its just there. Our lives are beauitful because of our limitations. We live in a way where everything is beauitful because of its limitations, because of the limitation time puts on us. Even the concept of limitations due to the fact that we are “only human” when these limits are broken they are noticed.  These moments of victory when records are broken, when you surpass your own skills, you grow, you learn, you interact, you live your life. I believe we are here to appareciate our lives and fnish our stories. We are grow as a species. We are evolving, growing, we need to follow our hearts (which is controlled by your mind..(thats the only reason i threw that cheesy line in)). We need to live our lives help each other, help our earth, our home.

Appreciate your life, what you have. In the end this is just an idea, but its my idea and it works for me. I just thought id see if i could share this perspective with people see what they think.

Do me a favor whatever you took out of this, if you think i’m crazy or not, start noticing things, big and small things.

The history of things and how it’s come to be now. If one factor were to be different, our existance today would be different. Skateboarding for example, all it is, is a plank of wood with wheels and an axel, that has an entire culture around it. Where did it all start? Each moment that brought it to where we are now is what shaped this thing. Who knows, if there wasn’t a war between skaters and security guards skateboarding might not have boomed. Music. If the beatles didn’t exist or even if just a member in the band was different, music might have been different today.

Notice things in your own life too. Situations like, something you had planned, like an event. You were stoked but something didn’t work out. And you couldn’t go so you went somewhere else. maybe you made a new friend, you might not realize it then but if you had gone to where you wanted to things would be different, you might’ve hooked up with this person you met 2 years after that day, or even immediately after that day you find out something went really wrong at the event you were supposed to go to, but because you stayed you were ok. There are endless possabilities, but notice things and try to make that connection, it helps you appreciate where you are, and why things hapen the way they do. But don’t focus on this, cause it’s only an idea. live you life. Live your story. Look at your life as your story. (Do me one more favor, next time you are at a party or on a date, or at work, just interacting. Picture yourself as a part of a story like a movie of a cartoon if your imagination will permit.) It got pretty cheesey at the end, but this is how i see the world and our existance, and I’m definately not saying its how it should be because like i said earlier, we won’t find out til we’re outa here. Take what you will, and I’m open for discussion on the topic. Just remember we only know whats real to us.

When you are born your limb have to still develop your body has to grow, and as you grow you get the hang of using your body and soon can co-ordinate your body to use tools or operate something else. Like riding a bike. Your mind co-ordinaes your body which operates the bike.

I apologize

They say there are 3 parts to an apology:

1. Admitting what you did was wrong.

2. The actual saying sorry part.

3. Asking what you can do to make it better.

They say you really mean it when you include the 3rd step as well. But sometimes theres just nothing you can do…

Time will heal…

Technology

So i was playing around on my laptop, and discovered that vista has a default speech recognition application, and its actually REALLY cool. Once I get the hang of it ill be sailing. Right now I’m training my comptuter to adapt to my voice. It’s kinda like training a pet, which is intense because now I’m comparing a living being to a man made application, which should be a completely seperate conversation, I’ll save that for a different post.

Back to technology. There are many people who are intimidated by the idea of a technological boom. We are in a historical period right now. We are transitioning into the digital/technological age. Some might say we are already here. I think we’re close, I think we are about to undergo a HUGE technological boom within the next few years maybe even decade, and we all are a part of it.

Media also plays a part in our discoveries and technological breakthroughs. About a decade ago we were so fasinatied to see people on a space ship with ear peices that acted as a communication device. Wireless headsets. These devices were even compatible with other electronics and interfaces. Bluetooth. There are some crazy devices and technologies out there. And even some crazy ideas:

not a fan of apple but they have some sweeet ideas

holy shit! imagine that!?

if i had an i pod id want this

you get the point. I use to be anti technology for a long time, at least i disliked what i saw in myself and others involving our dependance on these technologies. I’ve had dependancy issues during my life that might have sprouted that opinion. I boycotted technology, i realized its not gonna make technology go away, then i asked, why do i want it gone? Because it makes me lazy?  It makes everyone brain dead because these computers do all the work for us?  we can’t get by without a calculator? Some people can, like some people have strengths and weaknesses. It is intimidating to be involved in such a detached part of the human evolution. Yet it is still part of the human evolution. All these things we have discovered and constructed and designed and developed, they were all created by human minds. And we aren’t alone in these discoveries there are influences of other minds. Minds of the past and present, that help and add to the minds of our future. Every idea has influences and has influenced, every moment has contributed to these ideas, and most importantly every failure has opened a new door(s). We are all part of the same entity, different strories that intertwine and network to compile a bigger story. The story of the human evolution. Which in turn works with other stories, forming the story of our home. The story of planet earth. Cheesey, but its true.

However, we aren’t as detached from this age of evolution as we think. Yes the machines and mechanics aren’t a part of our bodies(…yet) in some of us they already are. But on a more mental note: our generation of people are able to jump form task to task much easier than our parents generation ever did, its physically impossible for the human mind to text book defination of “multitask”, what we do is jump from focus to focus and jump back when we need to. Because we developped in front of a computer during the important parts of our lives we are able to utilize applications and jump from task to task much easier as the computer was able to provide. Msn was a huge factor in this. How many conversations have you had at one time while on msn? You jumped back and forth and sometimes to a new conversation while typing an email. Sit your folks down in from of msn and watch them go, some of them might be able to still manage through but you will definately see a difference in the mental stamina/reaction time.
Speaking of reaction time…Video games! What an intense breakthrough. People who play a lot of video games, develop better reaction time, its also said that playing a lot of first person shooters better one’s vision, in the game you look for the slightest of movements to determine your target and your fate in the game, if you dont catch these slight movements, you will usually find yourslef all of a sudden respawning at the other end of the map and have to work your way back into the battle (beacuse you just got killed….if you didn’t catch that). Other games have other affects, rpgs and games like starcraft, have helped develop strategic skills. And so on…Video games are already huge!!! They will only get bigger. Video game tournaments will become more popular and soon it might even turn into a sport….image that, you turn on TSN to watch an intense game of Call of Duty. haha…i laugh now…

We are already a part of this age…

Jump in…

All the post on this blog are ideas i have, about myself, the world and existence. I don’t necessarily believe ALL of it, because they are only ideas, however there are some i do live by. I keep them around and build on it if I can.  Whether these are true to whoever reads them is up to the reader. The point of these ideas and developing your own is to build an appreciation for the lives we live, no matter what your story is or where it takes you.
