World as it is
There is a world called Tellus, which we humans, amongst many other creatures live upon. Human population reaches soon six milliard people. In this tiny planet of ours (Jupiter is about 300 hundred times bigger) we have six milliard people living in their own world, interpreting this world in unique way. One could say that there is about six milliard ontology’s of this world/existence.
In one world there exists so many worlds; is there connection between these worlds? -A question many have asked. Renee Descartes famously concluded, “Cogito ergo sum” I think, therefore I am. But who is that is thinking, can I be sure it is I, might someone ask. We can’t be sure of anything actually. We can’t know in the pure sense of knowing that there even is these six milliard other people, or the world, nor Jupiter or whatsoever. We live in our subjective world; we see world through our eyes only.
Interesting then is, that we all believe we live in the same world, that there is something we all see and hear. And we have cultivated this believe very far, we have constructed our whole “objective world” upon it. We have defined our objective world, what it is and what it isn’t. We have invented science to explore this world. We have gone so far that we don’t remember anymore that the objective is only a belief, something commonly agreed.
All this is fine, we need to believe in order to live and function. But what makes it problematic is that this belief has been dogmatized. And people who contradict are not listened. We have lost our own subjective experience in order to build objective experience. Paradoxical and also ironical part is that in our age certain kind of individualism has also gone to the extremes. Individuality whish is born out of the collective objective truth, not out of our subjective experience.
What if we could build our objective world differently? Could we accept the fact that we may not have a clue what is really going on here? Could we wonder about this? Can there be something in our existence, which is common to all of us without the need to compromise? As science and our objective believes of the world relies on rationality and logic, could we leave all that behind and search if we have something in common in more humane level; in irrational feeling based level?
Life is irrational, chaotic, the law of cause and effect is only an invention, mere belief, which does make the world easier place to be, but is not necessary true. Nonetheless it doesn’t always work.
The world as it is, is a mystery. Something our logical mind cannot reach. That doesn´t mean it can’t be experienced.
