Reality fluctuates between 1 state and 1 space and infinite time and infinite space. A person's soul exists in 1 state and 1 space. Every other part of reality exists in different states and different spaces within infinity. The soul that exists in 1 state and 1 space can perceive different parts of infinity if and only if data from the states within infinite space arrive at 1 time and 1 space which they do because the brain (which is in a position in infinity) brings them to the soul.
The fluctuation between 1 state and 1 space and infinite states and infinite spaces creates time. 1 state and 1 space is in conflict with infinite states and infinite space. The conflict is never resolved because 1 is absolute and infinity is also absolute. We exist between the two.
I need to modify this. We actually exist in infinite space and each of us has a location in infinite space. We cannot all exist in 1 space. The above applies only to the conflict between 1 state and infinite states. That seems right.
We exist in an infinite space; infinity includes infinitely small, penetrating all. Our ideas of dimensions of space and time do not apply to infinity; inherently beyond our grasp.
About a person’s “soul”; it is what drives us, “being” here, our presence, conscience and free will, enables us to make some choices.
When watching a birth we see the arrival of a fully grown alive fetus. It may not have life yet but will be awaiting the arrival of its “life”. Some manipulations from the attending expert may reveal that “life” has suddenly entered. The baby “has come to life”, but where did that “life” come from ? Does life just come from the infinity of space in our room? Similarly, while observing a peacefully dying person, life can be seen to be still present until, at some instant, we can “see” that the person’s life has departed. That “life” must have returned to the infinity of space in our room.
Lives come and go all the time, but where from and where to ? It is obvious that there must be an origin and a destination for all those lives. To me that is INFINITY !
Is being born worth it? To be worthwhile, it requires a purpose. But no purpose is instilled and because it is not obvious, a plethora of beliefs has evolved. We can readily produce beliefs but we can’t see the source nor the destination of life and we can only guess about its purpose. One may go in raptures about some beautiful earthly scenes but they are readily overshadowed by bad weather. Trees are beautiful but money does not grow on trees and we are not “constructed” for eating and digesting trees. We have to work to get food. Forced laboring is not a joy. If there is no purpose, there is no need to be born.
Birth has been imposed on us by nature and with our naturally inbred urge to have sex we are imposing it on our off-spring. It is not our reasoned objective but an inborn urge that creates more humans.
Our planet is basically a ball of fire, bursting at the seams, cruel for life. Oh yes, it is lovely when the sun shines in spring, but greedy, careless and misguided people have caused overcrowding and “pollution” of the environment. We must stop breeding and change our bad actions.
