I was driving out of Chickfila and had this interesting thought.
We come to the world alone, naked and crying, do we really exit the stage alone too, we can leave the world — laughing and clothed- but what about alone?
So what is living all about—my conclusion is that living is about experiences and interactions with other sentient beings. When we leave it is with nothing but we don’t leave alone because we remain tethered to all the lives we have touched and all the experiences we have shared so even though our body is no more our essence remains—so do we really leave or do we remain.
If life is energy and consciousness—1) energy just transforms and 2)the consciousness gets distributed among others who survive—( information transfer from one to many). We remain in the beings of all the lives we have touched in the time we live.
So ergo we come to the world crying, naked and alone and our body departs laughing ( hopefully for me) and clothed ( must for me) but our consciousness and experiences remain distributed amongst all the beings we have touched.
So is this transference of consciousness permanent or transitory —Don’t know will have to think about that—what happens when the people we know pass on—
So at the moment—I am going to try to touch as many lives as I can in a meaningful way for that is the survival of my self consciousness.
Am I making a case for social networks on a higher plane —hope not, I hate Facebook
Just some brooding as I drive the 7 miles from Chick Fila to work
