Questions like “Does God exist?”, “Why are we here on earth?”, “Are we alone”, etc, are a few things everybody has thought about at some or the other point in life. We often find answers to these questions, in magazines, in interviews, on websites and from learned scholars, among other sources.
But the main question is this – Which answer is right?
You could say, believe the scholars. But, scholars have studied from books and learned from experiences, both things which are easily available on the internet.
So maybe we should believe websites? Except, website manias often sprout from media articles, such as those in the magazines and newspapers.
Then believe the paper media! I mean, if they’re wrong, we can sue them or something and we’ll even have written proof! However, magazines and newspapers publish such articles in the form of interviews and they interview learned and experienced scholars.
This is the vicious cycle most of us are caught up in. Now, I can give you two answers to escape from this cycle – either read up everything, every single source and get overwhelmed by all that information our brain has never handled in that quantity at the same time, or, simply don’t care about the matter at all. I mean, everybody’s got pressing issues to handle as it is, and providing answers to gratify our curiosity isn’t, for all probable causes, a necessity.
But then arises the main question again – Which answer is right?
Each answer maybe right or wrong in different dimensions. For example, logically, not caring is better than caring, because you increase your productiveness in this world of purpose (read: money). But, mentally, choosing our curiosity over our capacity for productiveness would be natural, as that is how humans have been made.
In the end, which option can we choose? Both make sense, and yet they don’t make sense.
I really don’t think change is the only constant thing in the world, because confusion is still untouched by change. Confusion may reduce in some subjects. But, in matters of the cosmic nature – matters of which humans are the effect and not the cause – it is the only constant I know.
