What is everyone's take on this subject? I think it is a fascinating philosophy. One of my favorite quotes ever is from a comedian named Bill Hicks. It is a very smart quote on this very subject. It reads:
"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death. Life is only a dream, and we are all the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the Weather."
Tool fans might recognize this from the song "Third Eye". I tend to approach everything with an open mind and I would like to think it is due largely in part to this quote.
