Hey, I'm new here but I was wondering if anyone else had pondered on these same thoughts as me?
Something that always gets me confused is when I imagine nothing, at all. It'd probably be like death or before being born but that's not what gets me. It's just, the fact that nothing may have never existed and there was no time, nothing. I probably don't need to worry about this since I doubt in my lifetime anything like this will happen.
I'm not talking before the big bang, I'm talking as if there was nothing that could have even caused the big bang. Just, nothing.
The other is the inevitability of our death. Eventually everything will die, stars will die out, everything. We fight our death so much but there is a time when there will be no lifeforms to observe the universe, maybe some may get the technology to eventually survive but there is still the inevitability of death from the universe expanding too much. In my lifetime I don't need to worry about this, but I worry for the children of my children and their children etc. It's a problem that is inevitable.(Though I believe we will most likely kill eachother for lust of power unless something major changes before this time.)
I just guess this is one of the problems with not being religious, knowing there is nothing out there watching over you and so you don't have that peace of mind.
Ah well, just my thoughts.
(Btw, grammar fails, its 36 degrees and I just got home >.< Probably a huge cluster of bad grammar there.)
