There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly
what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly
disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and
There is another
states that this has already happened.
Personally I am a big fan of the
second theory and a lot
of people would say that I am also a direct proof of that theory.
Lets take it slowly.
Fist of all we have to make some thinks clear before I begin my
You have to take these three assumptions into consideration, otherwise
you will think that the next lines are complete nonsense.
- People are stupid.
- I am also people.
- You are also people.
A lot of words have been said about the meaning of
life. For centuries men, women and children gave birth to thousands of
brilliant and not so brilliant ideas. Despite the tremendous effort of
those people, the reason of our existence is still unknown.
In the meantime we have discovered the wheel, the beer,
the wine, the war, bombs, television, computers, pop music and the
beautiful happy ending Hollywood movies which contributed a lot to the
development of the mankind. And there is still no sign of a person who
would really, really know why the hell (sorry for the bad words) are we
here on this strange planet, having this strange hair on our heads.
Maybe we are asking ourselves the wrong questions? Maybe
there is no answer? Why do we ask this questions? Why are we so curious
things that are maybe none of our business.
Why am I saying this? Let's take an example. You are
riding a horse. A nice and friendly brown horsie who is gently taking
you around the fields and forests. But suddenly this horse changes. It
becomes philosophical. It start to think: "Why am I carrying around
this strange looking animal on my back?". And it stops. And you get
violently thrown on the not so soft ground. I think you would be angry.
It's not his business to think
about his job. He just has to do it.
This stupid example showed us that there are certain
circumstances in which it is better just to do our jobs and not to make
trouble, because it could be that there are higher goals in our lives,
but we can't see them. And the moment we start thinking about our
mission in life we destroy everything.
Now put yourself in the shoes of God (if you don't
believe in one invent one). He is spending so much time training us,
teaching us in his mysterious ways. And then we start to think about
God in his loneliness up there, somewhere.
What did we learn until now? There are couple of
- Not everyone who is discussing the meaning of
something knows what he's doing.
- Don't believe everything you read
- Be careful when riding a horse, it could be a smart
- These lines are a direct proof of the second theory
