Fever, Fervor.

Two words that sound almost the same, have the same ring to them.

What do we know about ourselves? Where are we going?

What makes the colour blue, blue? What is gravity?

Why does space exist? What is time?

What is nothing?

D'où Venons Nous? Que Sommes Nous? Où Allons Nous?

I request that you look away from your screen for approximately 30 seconds, focus on everything that is happening around you, from the movement of the indifferent air particles around you, to the electronic circuits that slave away in your computer processor.

At the end of all things, we ask ourselves- What have we achieved? Where are we going?

Why do we strive? Why do we learn?

What is living? What does it mean, to be alive?

Alas, these philosophical questions have been bugging me since the beginning of time. I fear I have yet to find the answers to any of the questions above, nor find a plausible theory to mask them up with.

We constantly pursue happiness, we are never satisfied with what we have. We reach for the moon, yet when we land amongst the stars, we dust them aside and jump again. Mankind has broken boundary after boundary, and yet another question rises to take its place, like a multi-headed Hydra.

This 'force' that propels all living things forward surely must originate from the same source.

It is this force that makes adapting possible.

There must be some chemical.
chemical in your brain.
That makes us different from animals.
makes us all the same.

I will share more of my thoughts as the pieces fall into place.

What are your thoughts?
Comments are much appreciated.

  1. I treat it more as something relative to our survival instincts. We grow and strive to be more because it increases our chances of survival. Practically all of that does affect it, to some degree.

  2. Have you ever considered the possibility that you might be a genius—or at least a minor one? ;)

  3. Another great post dude, thanks for sharing!
