Hello all, I recently have just been to myself, and began to think deeply about life in its entirety. This self-discussion has led to a small amount of depression. I feel as if religion puts value on human life, and yet at the same time, looks down on it, looking forward to the "afterlife". They say thou shall not kill, etc, all moralistic things in human nature. Then they say, just follow your "god" and you'll have eternal love/happiness/etc in the afterlife. My point is, I have come to my own realization/opinion that one life (including my own) is not important when looking at the universe as a whole. You become aware of the fact of how minute your life-time is here on Earth. Just a “microsecond" in the life of the universe. I have struggled to come into a valid reason as why I should feel one minuscule timespan is worthy in this vast timeline. I am no where near saying I’m contemplating suicide or anything of that nature lol. What is there to look forward to, when you envision that your life will just end without any imprint on the world. Just would like to know some opinions on what is important enough in a small amount of time, when all-in-all, we came from “nothingness” and will eventually return to “nothingness”.
