There are so many unanswered questions and there are a handful which are capable of putting one into existential crisis. We are at present living in the 21st century, according to man made system of time and numbers. Compared to our present advanced technology and science which entitles us to be so called “modern”, the early humans were considered primitive. But I wonder whether they were more closer to or rather had greater likelihood of unraveling the purpose of the very existence.
I very much appreciate and agree that technological advancement have made life much comfortable, indeed have made us more lazier. Our scientific inventions and discoveries, makes us believe that we’ve achieved a great deal of knowledge. True, we have ample of facts on bacteria, virus or any other micro organisms for that matter and we are still working on to understand better.Then, the chemicals and their properties, uses and what not. More than that the simple machines and laws governing it , from where we fabricated complex ones.
We do know that ” Necessity is the mother of all inventions”. However, what is the benefit of all this? It surely helps us to survive the system we’ve built to guide our lives. But aren’t we complicating things here?
We live in an environment completely surrounded by man made inventions, called a built environment which is intoxicating. Just look around – the buildings, roads, cars and humans trudging through life unaware.
What are we here for?
We do know our time here is short, we are mortals but why?
Don’t get me wrong I’m not asking you to think of immortality but just the purpose of this short story.
Moreover, we are all conditioned by the system to live or behave or think in specific ways. We are put in a rat race, before even we realize it. Life as a whole seems like an illusion. It is human nature to carve for stability which resulted in the system’s existence. It is more like a defense mechanism – a game of hide and seek. However people rarely seek and are better at hiding though.
I’m not being cynical or pessimistic. Just trying to comprehend the intricacies of life. On a final note, I would say suit yourself. Let’s see how far you go with your materialistic ways.
