In the beginning, there was light.
Since this dawn of creation, scientists, scholars, and poets have pondered
the meaning of this event which historically, has been pretty important for us.
Now we put our mind to the test and deliver the answers.
Let us begin.
Ok, let me come clean: this thought is not about the meaning of life.
I will provide no rationalizations, arguments, suppositions, or presumptions towards what it is.
Not just yet, anyways. Like I said, this will be a multiple-parter.
Cut me some slack, I'm trying to answer the most difficult question in history, just for you.
Still reading? Good on you.
This means you’re not so distracted by the question so as to miss the reality.
While answers will come later, what this thought will do is look at the question.
“What is the meaning of it all?”
A doozy, huh?
Let me ask you this: since when did we begin assuming every question had an answer?
Tell me: What is the sound of one hand clapping? What color is a dog’s bark? Which is the most intelligent rock? What is the most physically solid poem? What is the volume -- not the area -- of a circle?
Do you see what happens when you go sticking your nose in things you do not understand? All of those questions involve applying labels that do not apply to the object being labeled. Questions are not as simple as we assume. Relevant information is needed before a logical question is asked. Perhaps when you ask for the meaning of life, you do not understand. Consider this well.
Stick around for part two, as we proceed in the direction of the meaning of it all.
