After millions of years of existence. After learning so much about the world that man lives in, the one thing that humanity has not yet manged to find out is why we are here. Not just humans, but why is anything here? Humans, animals, trees, materials, planets, the universe, anything. Of course there are many religious arguments that try to explain how it all began, however as an atheist I don’t believe a single one of those beliefs. I just find it so weird to think that nobody on earth knows or has known how anything began.
Another thing that I always wonder before scaring myself is that what came before all of the galaxies and the universe? Nothingness? What actually is nothingness and how do you picture it in your head? For me I picture an infinite white space, expanding indefinitely, however how did that white space come about because that is still something. It’s impossible to imagine ‘nothing’. Because nothing is still a thing really. It’s just something that seems like the human mind is not capable of processing which is saddening to be honest, however of course very interesting. Sometimes after wondering about these things, I tell myself to think about more basic things such as what should I have for tea or how much I like the look of that tattoo on the internet, however it is these small things that also make me realize what a small spec of dust we are on the grand scale of things. We don’t even know the full extent of what is beyond our own planet. What happens when we die? Will we EVER know the answers to these questions? There are so many mysteries that nobody has any actual knowledge of and it’s scary to think really. This is something that I often ponder on, and I just wanted to write a little something about it on here.
