Release is wonderful. Us people we always try superficial methods of freeing ourselves from obstacles that hamper us. Things that deceive us. Things that prevent us from understanding our true selves.
Do you believe? and is belief such a hard thing to execute?
Yes. i would say it is. True belief involves giving up a certain degree of rationality. True belief involves faith. You believe in your lover? but how do you know he or she wont turn around and cheat on you the next day? how do you know that despite all that you know of that person, the next day, things could be turned on their head? Your lover is after all, a person just like you. Who could quite acceptably, even unbeknownst to you, feel differently to the way you feel about them. So isn't it faith that keeps us going everyday?
Human beings are creatures of faith. We believe that the sky won't fall on our heads tomorrow. Sure, we might attribute it to a science which tell us that there are no meteors on a collision course with our planet, but how exact is science? those who claim to believe in science are simply claiming to believe in human ignorance.
For that is what 'science' symbolizes, human ignorance. Unfortunately, a term that should be used to describe the expansion of human knowledge, is used to describe the come all and be all of what we are all about. We have become slaves to progression. we are supreme in our belief that we are in our optimum. just look at the Egyptians. they thought they were 'It' at the time. So did the Mayans and I'll bet my last inflated rupee that the Babylonians thought the same. And if you are partial to a fantastical train of thought, then so did the amazingly advanced Atlantians that sunk into the ocean bubbling in decadence born of a magical advancement.
For science doesn't tell us how much we know, as it tells us how much we don't know. Science is but the culmination of existing human knowledge. to 'believe' in it is a folly. when science itself has proven itself wrong many times over. we believe in an objective phenomenon. nothing more. nothing less.
My point is this; There is a lot we know, true. But what we know doesn't even come close in comparison to what we don't know. What I'm trying to say is we might know a whole lot of shit. But the shit that we don't know, is probably enough to keep the sewage systems of several universes running at a steady pace for light years (taken as purely a measurement of time).
So do you believe in science? Do you believe that God does not exist? But how do you know when science has not disproven God's existence? When science does not even get close to exactly defining what goes on in our own heads when we form a single thought, or a single wisp of a dream? No, science is nothing. It is simply the fundamental core of human knowledge. That's all it is.
Just look at the stars. Tell me, do you believe? Do you believe in scale and size? do you believe in fate and the unknown? Do you have faith? OF course you do, you start the day with it every morning. You believe in the unknown everyday. For everyday is a mystery waiting to be discovered, to delve into a cliche, and everyday is potentially damned or blessed. So let's not be audacious here.
