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.
The above analogy infers to a simple realization, that any event that may seem as a conscious choice or a subconscious one, could merely be a difference or deviation in path, but leading regardless to the same unknown destination. The outcome may seem amendable in the present, as all options are open, but the inability to view the entire universe or what lies beyond, deems us impaired to see the true destination. This inability in our current circumstances makes every imaginable action, conscious or subconscious a possible reality, unaware of the forces outside us shaping our paths to that unknown destination. After all even the conscious thought has been built upon the gathered wisdom and inputs from our environment both active and passive.
Only someone who is looking at the river from above in its entirety, can know its true path and destination. It is like a painter, who knows the bounds of his canvas, so that he envisions his art accordingly or a person filling a cup knowing its brim, neither of them can cross their limits.
The forces that affect the river are both intrinsic and extrinsic to it. It would only make sense, that the forces shaping and affecting the universe, by choosing the events or allowing them to be chosen may only affect the state of the end point, but not the finality of it.
I leave this philosophical view to the reader to ponder upon, as the things that appeal to humans are mostly subjective to us, but that doesn’t mean that the objective truth does not exists, its only yet to be discovered.
