On any scale of measurement fathomable by any human who’s ever lived our existence is impossible. Go back two generations and our 2 parents and 4 grandparents had to conceive at the exact moment they did for us to exist. Travel back a mere 27 generations, or about 600 years, and the family tree exceeds 2500000. Extending the nonsense of trying to grasp the odds of following this lineage back 4 billion years doesn’t scratch the surface.
Our planet is one of innumerable billions in a galaxy that is one of billions in a universe that may itself be one of innumerable billions.
100 people die per minute replaced by over 200 newborns.
The nonsense propagated by those who claim ownership of truth pits the believers against the rest. Concepts such as right and wrong are claimed and fought for in a Universe where such concepts are void beyond the confines of the human skull.
We exist, we procreate, we kill, we explore, we compete, we search for meaning, we love we hate and we delude ourselves that anger, disappointment, resentment, or any number of toxic emotions are anything other than an utter waste of a finite moment of existence.
Live large, live small, care more, care less, chase your dreams or wait for your moment of demise. This is a choice. An alternate reality shows up when you view the world through a different lens. Imagine how your world would look if you replaced every belief and firmly held truth with the contrarian view that EVERYTHING is nonsense. What a fun world that would be.
