More On Existence
I've taken some time to think about what was written on existence. There is more to be said.
As such, tried imagining I didn't exist. I closed my eyes as if in a meditation. There was darkness filled with light energy-like flashes all around. I tried to eliminate this by shrinking it or replacing it. I tried to eliminate all consciousness. I couldn't. It just insisted upon itself. Existence could not be wiped out. The closer I got to squeezing it smaller or replacing it, the entire scope of my mind and consciousness was engulfed. It can't be done. It would just reemerge and flood the panorama of my mind’s consciousness. I tried to replace it with a void, but how? In the “time” dimension there is no void. I tried jumping out of time into a timeless arena. Still it seems as if I existed. The conclusion reached; we cannot eliminate our knowledge or experience of this existence. We can't even enter the space of non-existence, even for a moment. It hurts even to try. The brain becomes too stretched, as if you are trying to imagine the vastness of the universe.
Try it as an experiment. Imagine your consciousness never was and isn't. You can't do it, can you? Insist all you can. It can't be done. Your will is not enough. Self-knowledge, existence pops right back. Does death eliminate this knowledge of existence? I can't prove it, but I don’t think so. Somehow your identity is preserved. This awareness of our existence isn’t a temporary phenomenon and must certainly have a part in the big picture.
There is comfort and consolation in seeing and experiencing this that goes beyond words.
