I have decided to answer some more of thought provoking questions as I had a lot of fun answering a couple last time and got a pretty good feedback. Let’s see what do we have here today!
Is free will real or just an illusion?
Well, depends from which point of view you take it. But overall I think that in the current world system you can’t be free no matter what. You have set of rules for absolutely everything. I don’t think that majority of people realise how intense it is when it comes to government.
Why do we dream?
Our brain tries to deal with the problems we have while we sleep. I recommend a really good book that I read couple of years ago called “Dream Sight”. There is a really nice explanation in the beginning followed by a list of dream interpretations which are very very precise as you have to always connect it to yourself. It is not a kind of book where they tell you that if you dreamt about a turtle, you will have a good luck or something haha.
If a child somehow survived and grew up in the wilderness without any human contact, how “human” would they be without the influence of society and culture?
This is a really interesting question. I think that there would be certain aspects that would benefit, but also harm the child. It would be extremely difficult to become a part of the society after years spent in the wilderness. But the child would also not be brainwashed from all the media, (cult)ure and stuff like that. The kid would definitely be very different, probably just running around naked or covered in something made from the nature, not caring what other creatures around think and be guided by instincts.
Is it possible to live a normal life and not ever tell a lie?
Of course it is. I am not gonna play a saint – I lied in my past, but when I look at it now… I could have easily just go ahead without saying these lies and be honest at all times. There is no such thing as “normal life”, so why not keep a good karma and stay truthful to yourself and others?
How would humanity change if all humans’ life expectancy was significantly increased (let’s say to around 500 years)?
I think that it would definitely be a good thing for some people and a bad thing for others. When it comes to me, I always feel like I don’t have enough time to do everything I would like in my life. For example if I know that I would live until 500 years, I would like to not learn only how to play a piano, but I would want to conquer guitar, drums, violin… I would also not fix on one thing, but be more open to different fields than art and design. But it might be as I mentioned a bad thing for others, as they would be maybe even more lost than they are now. Also, some people work at the same job almost their whole life. In this case it wouldn’t be probably possible, so it would be a challenge for many souls.
What does it mean to live a good life?
When it comes to me, a good life is lived when you can master your mind. You create your own happiness, thus you live a good life. Or actually, that would be a perfect life haha. But I definitely think, that just doing what makes you happy, being open-minded and loving is a way to live a good life. What do you think?
