Are you interested in the meaning and purpose of existence?
As in the big, absolute, total meaning of the universe and everything, including yourself…the final answer?
Why the universe exists at all?
Did you know that it has been found out?!
What do you think that the answer is?
It turns out in a few ways. One way is that the answer can only be understood by a select group of people of the appropriate psychological personality type; other types will disagree with the answer and will have their own myriad of answers each of which they think is the correct answer thus contradicting all of each other…and so of course they’re all wrong. The correct answer stands out of all this because it’s logically irrefutable, but being logically irrefutable is the very condition which makes it understandable to only a select group of people and ununderstandable to the rest.
There is only a single correct answer to existence. The corollary is that there’s infinite wrong answers to existence.
Some people wrongly think that telling yourself that you’re “God’s chosen people” is the answer. Some people wrongly think that having a relationship with an ancient rabbi is the answer. Some people wrongly think that submitting to the words of “God’s last prophet” is the answer. Some people wrongly think that there is no purpose to existence, but it keeps tabs on you anyway. Some people wrongly think that existence is random and meaningless. Some people wrongly think that everyone has their own answer.
Of all the possible wrong answers to existence these are some of the very utmost worst possible, and I have a willful fear of any of them spreading to any greater degree than they already have. These worst possible answers form the structure of society for the vast majority of the planet, and so is it any wonder at how screwed up this planet is? Echoing Douglas Adams, humanity seems to be a device created for the purpose of finding the worst possible answers to existence, and then living them out.
You know…that’s why free speech is so important. If we ever come to a time when certain speech is outlawed, given this human propensity for celebrating the wrongest answers, then it means that we outlaw ourselves from even the opportunity to think the truth. Oh wait…this has already begun to happen in the West with anti-Islamophobia laws, with denying the West’s conquering of slavery, etc. 1984 in the real. Do you realize how well and truly fucked we are when speech becomes outlawed? Isn’t speech itself “hateful” since by the very act of speaking to someone else you are imposing your thoughts upon someone? Aren’t basically all books hateful since the authors have different ideas than our own which they have no right to impose upon us but insist that they do? Won’t we eventually have to outlaw all communication? As in my previous “Be an Idiot!” post, the liberal capitalist consumerist system wants us reduced to animals addicted to the corporate morality of Facebook…like donkeys chasing the carrot except the carrot will be the latest SuperExtremeHD® semitransparent VR device you can wear while walking at the park to stay on Facebook! Isn’t it disgusting how we interact with our phones instead of with other people?! Our “social interaction” is becoming staring at a screen talking to people you don’t know but being hyper-concerned that you fit in with them. We are reaching levels of hysterical insanity here that shouldn’t be possible to exist. This entire system is disgusting and I become more and more sick about seeing it grow around me. And don’t think for a second that the liberal capitalist corporate system wouldn’t just love to be able to stop anyone from questioning it. Who most benefits from the end of free speech? Liberal corporate capitalism does, that’s who. It is liberal corporate capitalism that seeks the Idiocracy future. In fact everything that’s wrong benefits the most from the end of free speech! Even science has now been conditioned to accept the end of free speech for the sake of silencing those horrible climate deniers™! The end of free speech is simply another example of humanity arriving at and then adopting the worst of all possible answers to existence.
This bring us to another corollary: The true answer to existence will be the most hated knowledge in all of human history. Yes, there are a small group of humans who can understand and accept the answer, but, the vast masses who will reject it will reject it with the greatest display of anger and hatred which has ever been demonstrated to date. We will witness brand-new invented forms of violence not yet thought of or imagined created in order to fight the knowledge of the one true answer to existence. This is a guarantee, and those who accept and understand the true answer to existence had better harden their hearts and get prepared for some pretty awful shit.
Another way it turns out is that static (as in unmoving) existence is impossible, or at least is inconsequential. Such a consideration is necessary for comprehending the nature of the meaning of existence. A static existence has, by definition, nothing happening in it; not even thought is possible in a static existence since even with a thought there is something moving. A static existence is as inconsequential as an existence of pure nothingness and hence reduces to pure nothingness. Thus if existence is going to exist as something more than inconsequential nothingness, then whatever it is that exists, it must move. That existence must move, and that you are by definition part of existence and hence partake of its properties, says everything about what you are supposed to do with knowledge of the answer; that is, with your own life in existence. (Just because there is a single true answer to existence does not mean that we do not all have our own personal struggles and things which we seek to accomplish – those are all personally meaningful things and are our own “personal answers”, but they are not the universal answer…they in fact all feed off of the universal answer.)
The answer to existence can actually be written down in a single “word”, a single expression. Unfortunately the expression is composed of coded symbols that are meaningless to the vast majority of people. Even of the people that could read it, it still won’t make sense as the answer to and meaning of existence without reading a few millions words on how to understand and interpret it. Would you like to see it though? Are you ready to witness the answer to existence? OK, here it is, in its most brief formulation:
eiπ + 1 = 0
Everything about the nature, reason, and purpose of existence is found in this answer. As of the current date, understanding this answer requires reading and comprehending a few million words of philosophy. Once you understand it, though, it all becomes all so perfectly obvious and natural. But you have to be the type of person that can follow a logical philosophical argument over a few million words, and have some knowledge of or at least an incredible intuition of what are currently advanced mathematical and scientific concepts. The answer is simultaneously both extremely simple and extremely difficult. It can be yours! The answer can be yours.
