I would say “regret” is another paradigm of human hypocrisy. The decisions or the actions we take, are a manifestation of our existence supported by circumstantial evidence. We do what we do, based on our perception of the world around us, that is our intellect along with a core will, constituting the basis of our existential purpose. Regretting our actions is only defying our existence and the true nature of our will. It’s well said that, ‘a man must do what he has to and live with it for the rest of his life.’ What the best one can do, is learn about the true nature of the will that governs one’s existence and come face to face with brutal facts of reality. By reflecting upon their actions, one can avail a chance at learning about this true nature and try making amends as far as the will allows, but who knows even learning along the way and changing our disposition may be a characteristic of one’s will.

Our home is changing. Apparently, its not because of the reasons we may consider natural or inherent that have attributed to change in our planet’s anatomy over millions of years, but the force instigating this change is, Us. Anthropocene, the age of humans, the greatest force this rock has ever witnessed. We are affecting the ecology faster than any natural sources like volcanoes or the sun, in reality we are affecting the core features of our environment that have instigated and supported life since the beginning. Our actions could be indirectly actuating the changes to occur in convolution. We as a race have a choice in deciding the fate of our world and our own, and we must make it count to preserve everything.
Human race is a young civilization. From our retrospective analysis, we can clearly see that we have a tendency to be reactive than being proactive. Along with our subconscious instinct, we learn from experiences and build our intuition based upon them, saving it for later use in all decision making. There is a divide in our use of the conscious and subconscious brain, our ability to consciously access the subconscious is quite limited. Now with the rise of the digital world and greater human population, there is already a debate on the effect of the former on our power to focus and maintain attention. The focus on the external has become so pervasive that even the widespread social networks connecting billions today, are leaving people disconnected with their self and immediate environment.

In this introductory blog, I wish to discuss my thoughts on the relation between, premise of human actions or other events and an understanding of the universe.
Human life and rest of the universe move in the dimension of time, one event leading to another. For humans, the event can be a conscious or subconscious disposition depending upon our grasp of time in its present state. Consider the analogy of the Universe being a flowing river and each particle in that river be all the matter and energy including human lives. Now each distinct point in that river may choose its own path or be chosen under the effects of gravity, but the overall direction remains the same downstream, fulfilling the same purpose by converging into the sea. The destination remains definite that is, the sea.
