it it all neuro-chemistry?

or is there something else greater at play...............?

is the divine merely a chemical stimulating a receptor site in our brains or is there a seperate consciousness orchestrating the show?

or is this a simulation of something else entirely set up in some lab of inordinately vast size and scope?

or............

did i fall asleep and dream this whole thing up and i`m really a butterfly waiting for my wings to dry in the morning sun as i emerge from my cocoon?

or did that flash i experienced that froze me in existential wonder come from the artifact of some overdose of seratonin one morning due to too much partying the night before?

and will all be revealed?

You monkeys are sure thick headed, how many times do I have too tell you that I'm just a spirituality in evolution and not some omnipotent entity that started all this?

No entity started all this, it just happened, it's that simple.

I swear, I'm surrounded by idiots.

This planet has a living spirit on it, and it's not a bogyman in the sky. This spirit is us.

if we are spirit in evolution then this thing didn`t just happen.

the logic of symetry in nature dictates that whatever happens on one side of things, happens on the other.......unless there is mutation.

and mutations are not mechanisms of survival.

consciousness decided to do this.

it seems a strange arrangement, but there is some consistancy in it.....as we`ve discussed here.

Bullshit, stop talking like an idiot. Hugs.

it may seem to you as idiocy, but i just don`t know.

your experiences give you some assertion but i don`t have that.

but i do have thousands of years of writings to compare my experiences with that conflict with your position regarding evolution, spirit and consciousness.

in some ways yours takes a sort of old testement position of taking things on faith or die.......

i look for a proof.

what i see as proof is a consistant reversal of chaos in proximity to consciousness that belies an order to things which appears to be driven by active decision making.

not chaos.

unless you choose, in which case that`s what you get.
