Nothing

In Philosophy on July 15, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Humans have always been powerless to comprehend the concept of nothingness. The basic building block of civilization is the working hours of the week. This creates a cognitive dissonance and inculcates a mental paradox when one considers what was the Universe upto before the Big Bang. What was it doing?

Interestingly, the vacuous condition required for all scientific experiments being taught in educational institutions do not exist either. It is an ideal state which is not what we find outside the Earth’s atmosphere. Granted, the medium outside our planet is lifeless and less dense but it is not entirely nothingness.  You find tiny amounts of hydrogen atoms dispersed within it. Nevertheless the vacuous atmosphere of outer-space is closest to nothingness that can be fathomed in reality.

Since a concept of nothingness is inherently insoluble with everyday human existence, we invent alternate realities devoid of nothingness and populated with human happiness. This notion of heaven is the ultimate failsafe to keep a check on insanity of humans co-habiting our natural environment. Einstein once commented on the infiniteness of human stupidity. If there’s a human trait that can match stupidity in its infiniteness, then that’s insanity. What is insanity? It is a state of the human mind where the individual resorts to actions that have absolutely no reasonable justification. Now, why does the individual resort to this? This is a hard question to find an answer.  Inauthentic people pretend to be insane so that they can get away with questionable behaviour, while other kinds of people are unable to possess cognitive comprehension of a purpose for their existence resorting to a primal, destructive instinct.

Patrick's To Do List - Nothing

All of this demonstrates the frail human psyche fighting to cope with a temperamental universe designed to get rid of life at every corner in space&time. The eastern spiritual traditions were closer to solving this conundrum of survival by forcing the individual to look inwards for strength rather than on totems created by man to feed his false security.  From thousands of years of progress our civilization is no closer to figuring out the purpose of existence than the Neanderthals. Maybe, we’ve already stumbled upon the answer and it’s too frightening to accept it. Nothing.
