Trying to understand life is the same overwhelming task as trying to overcome the speed of light. Too low level of awareness does not allow an ordinary person to plunge into the innermost secrets of the universe. Let's try to reflect on our life together. So:
What is life?
For many centuries and millennia, philosophical and religious concepts tried to create a theory that could fully and completely answer the question about the essence of life, about the essence of energy and matter. But it is unlikely that at least one of these concepts was close to understanding. Is there any possibility of putting into the framework of brain activity the whole diversity and grandeur of the universe? What is considered to be life in the end? Maybe life is a single mechanism that appeared before our eyes in the form of a universe? Or is life a human life? Both of these issues are interrelated and both of these issues are far from each other and exist in parallel worlds.
How can you try to answer such an existential question, having a tiny percentage of information not only about the universe,but even about the physiological structure of man? And what about the fact that life has completely different forms and limitless variations and manifestations? Do we know absolutely all forms of life? Unfortunately, most likely it is not.
What is human life? Everyone has the right to create and realize their own picture of the world. The picture of the world is a set of attitudes, concepts and human needs. Each picture of the world is unique. Every life has its own definition. That is why this article has the nature of open thinking rather than the statement of its own position. We ask you not to judge strictly, and try to form your answer to the question about the essence of life.
We often ask ourselves what is the meaning of life. Is there any? Is he in our personal life? Of course, only one person can answer this question. It is you yourself. Your activity and those people with whom you go through life carry some meaning in themselves that magically combines with yours. As a result, we get a kind of interweaving of meanings that leads ... What does it lead to? That's what scares us. This is what makes us sad. Humanity is not yet able to understand why it exists.
Remarkable scientific theory that offers a very realistic vision of the situation. Chaos theory. It says that life is just an accidental combination of chemical reactions and biological mutations. That's all. We are an accident, and maybe even a mistake in the history of the universe.
A special conversation requires the concept of a good life. Here it is necessary to distract a little from thinking about space and universal scales. What is a good life? What is she like? How many kinds of good life can you think of? Is one life equally good for different people? Experience and practice shows that the concepts of a good life can be both similar and diametrically opposed. What is the reason for this? The reason lies in the individuality of people. Each of us is a separate world with its own laws and rules. Someone sees a good life in an expensive car and a prestigious job. For some, the good life is family and children. Someone comes to understand that life is good only at the controls of the aircraft, or with a brush in hand, or on the stage of the best theaters in the world.
It is considered that a good life is distinguished by the availability of free funds that can allow a person some kind of freedom.Is it so? This statement contrasts with the statement of any of the religions. Any confession is ready to answer the question of what spiritual life is. What is the advantage of religion? Religion manages to give simple answers to complex questions. As it turned out, people do not need anything else. "Why is thunder rattling? Because Zeus the Thunderer is angry." Once a person understands this, he stops experiencing fear. This example is associated with long gone times, but the principle of religion has remained unchanged throughout its existence. Religion, god, deity, cosmos and all other representatives save a person from obscurity. It is no secret that there is no worse situation when you do not know what to expect. Religion gives a simple answer to this question. Any of the denominations promises a heavenly life after death, if you have served its ideals. Thus, religion performs a double seizure. She tells the man: "I will save you from fear, but if you live wrong, I will punish you!" Thus a person finds himself in a situation of imaginary choice. He thinks that he got rid of the torment, when in fact he doomed himself to life-long service to representatives of religious ideals.
We have been living on this planet for a very long time, but so far we have not understood what human life is.Although if you think about time on a universal scale, then mankind stayed in this world for about a second. Do not try to understand the universal meaning of life. The first task of humanity is to understand yourself. The first task of any person is to understand and accept oneself. The structure of our nervous system and the consciousness that evolution presented us, dictates a very special perception of the surrounding world. We look at this world based on our own filter systems. In order to get closer to understanding the world, you must try to see yourself. This goal is served by a remarkable science of psychology. Thanks to the knowledge gained in the course of numerous authoritative studies, mankind is more and more approaching conscious existence. The second half of the twentieth century is the time when more and more people are beginning to wonder about the adequacy and harmony of their lives. How do we live? What are we doing wrong? What should we go to?
We hope that you have learned something from our article. This is our vision of what the philosophy of life is. Good luck, dear reader, on the path of self-awareness and your own life.
