We are masters in creating things from things we cannot understand. In doing so, we create a vortex of chaos, through which we in turn create our own illusions. That’s why it’s necessary to respect the unknown and not to constantly place yourself above things about which little is known.
If reality would consist of nothing but shortcuts, it could not exist. Because if it would be so, nobody would have any more the necessary understanding to understand reality. Life has needed billions of years to be as we can perceive it today. If it would be the sense of the life to trick itself continuously, it could not not exist in the long run. Reality is simply like a woven net, which is not gladly tricked. By self-generated advantages discontent arises gladly, and discontent is advantageous for nobody.
Could time be seen as a kind of substance that holds the components of reality together? Time cannot be grasped directly. But we can perceive it through the continuous evolution of reality. Life arises from within itself and materials in general change. Apparently, time is somehow anchored in all aspects of reality that we can conceive of. Even matters which we cannot understand yet, because we lack the foundation for it, can be guessed under circumstances with the right experience. And even if not, time allows, through small fragments, or components of it, to conclude something much larger, which is hidden behind the hunch.
If life were simple, evolution could not have created living things. Life itself, seemingly subconsciously for us, is constantly and continuously creating new habitat by making new connections and improvements to what already exists. The further evolution proceeds, the more complex the components of the effects of already existing changes become. Similarly, as we grow older, we gain experience that enables us to perform activities that would not be possible without that experience. The tragic is only that such trains of thought can never develop without the already developed progress of our civilization.
Isn’t it somehow strange how it behaves with elements and the life if one puts these in correlation? Materials are to say lifeless, the life is in return penetrated by electricity, whereby we can perceive the life as alive. But without elements, from which the materials have originated, life could not exist. So, in order for evolution to come into being, something must have happened at some time, whereby it became possible for various elements to join together to form something, which we can understand as life in the simplest form known to us. Maybe a life form which is comparable to bacteria. Unfortunately, science is not able to explain these processes exactly, and there are still only assumptions in the room. It remains certainly exciting, because through the past can be possibly brought into experience which ways are open to mankind in the future.
Isn’t it literally breathtaking how many components nature consists of and yet how little we know about those? We humans have begun to turn away from nature and stopped trying to understand nature in its elements, perhaps because it does not fit into our complex world view. But here somehow incomprehension arises. How can it be that a normal person in this day and age is not even able to list 10 tree or plant species? It is impossible to develop an interest or responsibility for something as long as you don’t know it. Humans usually tend to treat matters about which we lack the necessary knowledge as insignificant and treat them accordingly. This has enabled humans to make enormous progress in a very short time, but humanity now faces the problem of having to begin to understand what has been forgotten in the past. We humans are as much a part of nature as everything else around us, and we cannot expect to benefit ourselves over a long period of time by continually harming ourselves through our own behaviour.
Technology is actually something quite abstruse. Through time alone and the materials available, something has been created that stands somehow between nature and us humans. Technological achievements have made it possible for mankind to create something that would be unattainable for the human mind alone. Since we are bound by the laws of nature, it will never be possible for us to understand the logic of technologies or to apply them comprehensively through our own way of thinking. As living beings, we humans are bound by the laws of nature. Technologies, by nature, are not. There is a great danger in the constant rejection of nature by technologies, because it loses its value through the achievements of man. We humans forget what we are actually capable of as living beings and thus constantly lose our self-esteem. And this without us even being aware of it.
In life we often receive answers with which we are not satisfied, this cannot be prevented. Often, however, we receive reasons that help us further if we try to find out why the answer has turned out accordingly. However, those who do not consider it necessary to act accordingly out of their own conviction or arrogance will over time have less and less chance of finding out how situations come about and how they behave. This reduces one’s own possibilities of influence over time because one lacks the idea of the background. In the worst case, one begins to cover up these backgrounds with false facts until one inevitably has to realise that one is wrong, which in turn creates further dissatisfaction. It is always better to learn from mistakes than to see them as something imperfect.
Dreams are often constructs of the unattainable. Through fantasy, a future can be imagined, which, as long as it is created in harmony with one’s own thoughts, can also be implemented in reality. This in turn creates new possibilities, ideas and views. Dreams bring change, both positive and negative. They are indeed a driving force of reality. The irony is that it is impossible to stop them, because even in sleep we deal with matters that we can not cope with alone due to lack of experience from our everyday life. Time knows no standstill, and in all of us there is a part of what we can perceive as time.
One of the worst qualities a person can lose in the course of a lifetime is respect for life itself. A huge number of actions and interactions that a person performs are motivated and guided by respect. Respect is learned through appreciation, which can be experienced through various situations. Should one find oneself in a situation of developing an indifference towards life and one’s own environment, one should consider whether it would not be advantageous to find out the relevant reasons in order to be able to act against the situation. No one can expect to be richly endowed by life without respecting life itself.
