It is just amazing how are lives are. If you just step back and look at our lives in the whole time of things. We are completely meaningless with little importance. We are just in an normal galaxy with millions of other galaxies. In our own galaxy there are billions upon billions of star’s, most have there own solar system. It just makes are total existence amazing. To think how many things had to come together to make life possible. Just sit and let that thought go through your mind. It is just utterly amazing and beautiful. I don’t care what people say, but just are entire existence is the most beautiful thing there is. Sometimes I think us as a society lose track of this. We are all so in tune with getting things now and knowing everything. We forget to just sit down and enjoy our lives. We are so caught up with rising gas prices, war, the crash of the housing market etc. We forget how lucky we are just to be sitting here and be alive.

The ultimate question that this is getting to is what made this possible? There are many theory’s out there God, The Big Bang, a divine force? Honestly I have always been a science man through and through. Though lately I have been thinking, maybe us as humans should not try to answer this question. I just don’t think humans are ready or equipped to answer that question. I think that this question is one of the few questions that should remain a mystery. I just think that if we do answer this question, what will it do? Let’s say there is nothing after this, it would make life meaningless. Or there is something after life. But let say you doing something to screw that up? I just think life would not be worth living if we answer this question. I think mystery and the unknown makes life worth living. If we answer the ultimate question there would be unknown left in life. Then that would make are entire lives meaningless.
