Questions… Hiding the Answers…

We keep on asking our selves how we can live forever.

We keep trying to find answers on deep philosophical questions for the meaning of life.

We insist on trying to find out what ‘reality’ is.

Only because we are afraid.

To admit that there are no answers to our questions.

We always knew that.

You see, the questions we pose are not here to reveal the answers.

But to conceal them.

For we knew the answers from the moment we thought the questions.

Questions that never existed anyway.

We thought of those questions.

In a void world full of nothing but existence.

How could there be answers to things we ourselves thought of?

Look at the calm lake.

The only reason you are asking so many questions about the waves on its surface.

Is because you want to hide.

The fact that your are the one disturbing its peace…

Oh, humans.

Gods.

Destroyers of the world…

If only you kept silent.

You would hear all the answers…

Inside the void that bred them.

Electricity and memory. Time and timelessness. [Questioning the obvious]

Electrical stimulation delivered when memory is predicted to fail can improve memory function in the human brain, a team of neuroscientists shows for the first time. That same stimulation generally becomes disruptive when electrical pulses arrive during periods of effective memory function. (1)

We stimulate and see memory improving.

We do thing and see results.

But all our perception is based on the belief in many other notions. For example the notion of time or the notion of change. What does it mean “memory is improved”? It is improved at a specific moment in time. Obvious and yet very complicated. What if the memory of a person is improved but after some time he forgets again? Isn’t that what we all do anyway? Will we say that memory is improved then? No, would be the “obvious” answer. Now what can we say for the “improvement” of memory in humans who will anyway die after some years? Not so obvious now is it?

What does it mean that the “memory of a person” is improved? Is it the same person always? Do we remain the “same” even after major changes (like not remembering anything) happen to us? If we change and yet remain the same person, then it is like saying that the notion of change exists for a person but at the same time it does not: If change means nothing for the person itself, then the person does not… change! Weird huh?

Question the obvious and you will see that you remember everything.

Because there is nothing to remember.

All questions entail time. And death.

This is obvious.

Forget everything and you will see…
