We destroy what we observe. From observers we automatically become participants in anything we want to “watch from a distance”. Either it is a simple photograph of a natural ecosystem or a photo of some friends partying, he who takes the role of the observer becomes part of what we observes whether he likes it or not.
We like to believe we can observe the cosmos. And yet we can only be part of it. We like to believe we can see life as an objective analyst/ philosopher and yet we can only live it.
Experience is the ultimate analytical tool. Not analysis of observation. Live and you will understand. Experience and you will know. Analysis of something you have now experienced means nothing. At all. Does it matter what you think of miracles of you haven’t experienced one? The only thing that could happen by analyzing miracles is to not believe one when you see it. Does it matter what you think about God if you have not experienced Him? The only thing that could happen is that you would not recognize Him when He stood of front of you. Does it matter what you think about existentialism if you have not experienced existence? The only thing that could happen is… well I would not know. I exist! 😉
Stop watching. Stop analyzing. Stop thinking.
And you will become the world’s best and truest philosopher.
This is what we need.
