is the sun itself "alive"?
Just something I've been thinking about. We are said to be made of ancient star dust.
The stars in the sky are often refered to as our distant relatives. What if "life" as we know
it is not a true definition of the term. How can the basis of all life not be considered alive?
We speak in scientific terms to describe life, but as technology constantly changes and
science is re-written as well, when will we realize the true power behind the sun?
As we continue to break down energy particles and discover new levels of energy, when will
we realize energy itself is alive or that life is measured by decay vs time of existence.
Time is simply an illusion that we use to describe the decay of the present.
Technically everything physical posseses some form of energy that if redifined could be considered alive.
When you think of soil and the life that comes from it and the combination of microscopic
life forms that live in it, how can we derive that soil itself is inanimate?
Water can be argued to be alive as well. The sun accompanied by water and soil do generous things
on this planet we call earth.
Did our ancestors have it right by worshiping the sun? Was studying the stars in
ancient times a way to communicate with civilizations that may never fully understand the message.
Who knows? Today, do we worship chemicals? Do we really know anything at all.
An educated person vs. a person who is not may seem more intelligent, but how do you measure
something like intelligence? We all had the book smart friend who could get straight A's
but had no common sense what so ever. (air head)
We consider the lives we live normal or abnormal by the standards placed before us.
Rituals and traditions overpower our collective existance. These same rituals have
meanings most that follow them don't understand. If everyone followed tradition
nothing would ever change. Every invention is an example of someone being different.
People who think in a less conventional manner are either seen as weird or extremeley smart,
so what does that say for everyone else? No one wants to be considered a follower
but in some form or fashion we all are.
Why accept what is? We have all been fooled...
