The more I try to figure it all out the less I understand
I’m in awe
all of this
it literally blows my mind because it’s just not comprehensible
Talk this out with me for a moment
How is it that everything has precise order and incredibly fine, exquisite design
and then we are just existing here on a planet spinning around in space lit by a ball of fire that is conveniently distanced at the perfect spot to allow all kinds of intricately deigned life forms to take shape who then have to basically figure out how to survive…?
Like what is all this!?
The human body alone is a mind blowing work of art. The fact that this whole machinery constructs itself from a sperm and egg inside the womb and over time encodes itself to form a heart, lungs, eyes, a brain, feet, nails, hair, stomach, digestive tract, a nose, veins, etc – all with such masterful design is hard for me to wrap my head around.
If that’s not fascinating, I don’t know what is.
I merely lose it when I contemplate it.
Have you ever looked at a drawing of the ear drum?
The ear drum alone is incredibly impressive, let alone the entire body!!
Then just look at everything else- the other animals, insects, birds, lizards…
The leaves, trees, plants, fruits.
Bananas trip me out every time. Like how does it know to grow a beautiful cover to protect its fruit so we could eat it? 😭😭 How?? How does it even know to be a banana? What nececitated there be a thing such as a banana? What is encoding all that is to be?
Seriously, wtf is going on? What IS all this!???
And then there’s all the human invention added to the mix – as if life already wasn’t interesting enough
now we have things like iPhones and electricity
and I, a human, am here typing into a phone created by harnessing the elements provided by the planet and the intelligence and skills of the inventors of this technology, so that YOUR magnificently designed eyes could read this.
I don’t know how we’re not all walking around completely mind blown at every second of the day
I think the point I’m making is that I’m truly in awe
and also feel so small
like what do I really know at the end of the day? So little. Barely anything. I feel like an ant.
What is even the point? Sometimes I don’t get it.
Sometimes I buy into the human story and drama – you know- the pay bills, make money, drive a car, do the laundry, every day normal people bullshit sort of thing.
Is that what life’s about? Is it about something else?
Perhaps cleaning oceans, ending wars, saving kittens, and housing the homeless?
Or is it about experiences, traveling, kissing, trying to make the best of the opportunity to be here?
I don’t know, and don’t know the actual point
But I hope I don’t miss it
