Interesting, huh? Then, what about gravity and the thousand different things that were discovered? Maybe, they constitute the tenets of the system into which we are embedded. Just like we kill a digital diskette by formatting it, Death is perhaps, just a complete format of the amputer. And birth, a fresh install. A time tested routine called life. Some amputers maybe found unusable even after a total format and new amputers might be built in such cases.
It’s really a sordid fact that from the moment the foetus is created, we are being programmed into existence. By birth, we are influenced by dogma. We have teachers who teach us what they believe is true, which in turn is what they were made to believe as the truth in their own formative years. We have Laws and Society to make sure we don’t deviate. We walk the path laid by our ancestors. We are taught how to think and made to believe that we are intelligent.
Intelligent we are. We are the ones who defined intelligence and we call ourselves intelligent. How convenient!! We are continuously exploring and understanding the world outside; we have even built a world around us and yet, we haven’t a clue as to how our own mind works. Some intelligence, I must say!!
And then, we have the so-called sixth sense. Whatever happened to the next sense? It’s been a long time since we developed a new one, isn’t it?
But then, who created our creator? Is HE a sophisticated version of the amputers we represent? Was this idea of recursion HIS? And how deep does it go? Anyway, those are HIS problems. We have plenty of our own to solve in the first place, so we’ll let HIM handle HIS for the moment atleast.
