Why is my existence not more basic?
I exist in this world (whatever the world may be). I am something. From my perspective, this is a solid fact; the only fact I know for certain.

I do not know what came before, I just know 'now'.

I am baffled by this every day.

If this is the only existence, then why is it the way it is? Why is my existence not more basic?

I popped up in this world with other strange fleshy creatures that use strange machines and seem to have strange practices. The practices are very brutal. All the fleshy creatures here seem to be so fragile and subject to great pain. They seem to require the life of other organisms to fuel their bodies.

Why is it this way? Can it not have been any other way? Brutal and beautiful and complex.

I am the only constant and this is all i know. What the fuck?

Re: Why is my existence not more basic?
Because reality cannot be anything other than tautological.

That means a 1:1 relation to itself. What exists = What exists.

What exists changes. This is called time.

What existed, changed, into what exists now.

What you are, is part of that which exists.

What you are, was forced to exist.

Your parents had sex.

The sexual material coupled and computed in such away, along with the exact intakes of material sustenance, to build your body.

And then more time happened, and more time happened.

And reality still equals reality, as it always has an always will.

Re: Why is my existence not more basic?
Now, get lost in the wonder of "now".

Watch all of this complex shit with detached amusement. Let it play before your senses. Enjoy it, "good" or "bad"... it just is.

Enjoy it while it lasts.
It's getting to the point where I'm no fun anymore.

I am sorry.

I like to pretend this is all one great cosmic acid trip.

There is no time but now, find wonder in everything, don't take too much too serious, let sensation wash you out to sea.

I often 'try' to think that way. Its easy until you feel pain.

Like the other poster said, this reality is forced upon us in this moment. I would also add that pain is forced upon us. We will inevitably feel pain from time to time. how does one remove her/himself from pain?

Take physical pain for example. There have been millions of people tortured or killed in horrible ways in human history. How could they have removed themselves from that while in that moment? Yes, I know that is not 'now', but it is a potential 'now'.

It may sound fucked up, but i have tried to experiment with physical pain. Intentionally causing high pain situations for myself. Observing it as just another feeling. I even do this with itchy skin, trying not to scratch it and just observe the itch.

Maybe it is something you have to master? because it still hurts/itches like fuck.

Because those in power have converted (perverted) the populace into cattle for profit and eventual slaughter stretched out over time to insure profits in the medical, and other industries.

But why do they have to be like that? Fuck... I don't even have the ambition to try to start my own business because of the energy it requires to manipulate people. How the fuck do these assholes have the care/energy to bother manipulating us. Don't they get tired? Don't they ever think... "wow wtf am I doing?... am I taking this a little too seriously?" What is the point of having us as cattle? what do they get out of it other than profit? I can guarantee that I am every bit as comfortable/satisfied as any super rich person.

The only Reason why you are here (with us) is to be a Gardener
who "must" put Seeds into the Ground,
Letters into Books and to "run the Universal Program" (doing and progress)

Enjoy it because your Days here (with us) are counted Flower

Re: Why is my existence not more basic?
OP, before you came here you designed a blueprint with many possible outcomes and you got appointments to reach being guided via emotions and intuition to them.
One of the tricks to know is that the only way you can miss an appointment is to worry that you will miss it.
Learn to allow and let go, know that the appointments will occur, some will make you feel special, they should, its your reality.

And the only constant is change.
