THE ULTIMATE ORDER

on Tue Apr 25, 2017 8:10 pm
It's time for THE REAL MISSION! *35*

In the past, we had various discussion on the ultimate philosophical questions. Starting with the meaning of life, to the chicken or the egg dilemma, to whether the universe was finite or infinite.

Throughout our quest for the Truth, we have looked at the problem of God and proceeded with various debates (1, 2, 3).

I dug out one of our past post, eternal philosophical questions and was surprised to find myself having elaborated opinions and commentaries for all the questions.

Time tells us that we have grown so much. And it is now the time to retackles these deep questions like how we used to do before.

*40*

I don't believe that you can answer to the eternal philosophical questions.

Ohohoho~ you little dark is trying to test the most enlightened rabbit of the universe? Let me show you my answers (so far) mehehe

ONE: on the essence of the universe
questions:
What is the nature of the universe? Where does it come from? Of what is it made? How did it come to exist? What is its purpose? By what process does it change? Is it evolving or devolving? Does it function by itself or would it degenerate to chaos without some kind of intelligent control?
The universe is god itself, it has always been and it evolves as god evolves itself because change is the essence of god.

TWO: on the existence of the universe 
questions:
Is there a Supreme Being? If so, what is His nature? Did He create the universe? Does He continue to control it personally and if so, at what level? What is his relationship with man? Does he intervene in the affairs of man? Is this Being good? If this Being is good and all-powerful, how can evil exist?
I just said the universe is god. It created our universe (provided there's parallel universe, or you can just think of Earth) as it evolved. Man is a part of god just like your cell is a part of you (which is also a part of god), so of course god is part of men's life at all level. This good is just a weird term to qualify god because it initially evolved from no polarity. Now it has a polarity, so we have good and evil. 

THREE: on the existence of human
questions:
What is the place of man in the universe? Is man the highest fruit of the universe or is he just an insignificant speck in infinite space—or something in between? Does the spirit of man descend into matter from higher spiritual realms, or has it evolved from matter? Is the universe conscious or unconscious of man? If it is aware, is it warm and friendly to him, or cold and indifferent, or even hostile?
Human is a part of god just like any speck of dust in the universe. Various part of god is aware of human just like not all human is aware of their cells. So not all part of god has the same feeling to human. 

FOUR: on reality
questions:
What is reality? What is mind; what is thought? Is thought real? Which is superior: mind or matter? Has mind created matter or has matter evolved mind? Where do ideas come from? Does thought have any importance--does it make any difference in our lives--or is it just fantasy? What is Truth? Is there a universal Truth, true for all men forever, or is Truth relative or individual?
Reality is relative. We co-created our world with our intention. Thoughts with not enough energy that opposes to it well eventually turn into reality. Thoughts are higher dimensional creations or perceptions. It projects onto the 3D world as matter and events. Truth is just god is.

FIVE: on human fate
questions:
What determines the fate of each individual? Is man a creator and mover of his life, or does he live at the effect of forces over which he has little control? Does free will exist or are our lives determined by outside factors—and if so, what are those factors? How does life work: is there a Supreme Force that intervenes in our lives? Or is everything pre-determined from the beginning of time? Or is life just random, full of coincidence and accident? Or is there some other control mechanism we do not perceive
Karma determines your fate. It's a universal law that if you push yourself too much into one polarity, you'll inevitably strike back to the other polarity. But if you have been more or less in the balanced state, then you are more or less free to do whatever you like because you don't have karma to "pay back".


SIX: on good and bad
questions:
What is good and what is bad or evil? What is moral? What is ethical? Who decides good and bad, right and wrong; and by what standard? Is there an absolute standard of good and bad beyond one’s the personal opinions? Should good and bad be determined by custom, by rational law, or by the situation? What if the decisions of others (society, authorities, laws, etc) determining good and bad are contrary to one’s personal beliefs or freedoms? ¯should you obey others or follow your own conscience? Moreover, if as an answer to FIVE, we do not have free will but are ruled by outside factors, what difference does good and bad make? ¯we have no choice. If so, we have no responsibility for doing bad.
This good and bad is a question more for some cultures than others. For example, in ancient china, people don't care about good and bad, they just know the principle of change so if you do bad things, eventually bad things will come to you. Whether an action is good or bad will be answered as a feedback by the universe itself and you need to use your heart to process it, so you may misinterpret. By understanding that everything you do will be responded back to you, you understand that good and bad is relative, just like any polarities.


SEVEN: on the ideal of utopia
questions:
Why are things the way they are? How should things be ideally? What is the good life —for the individual and for the many (society)? What would a Utopian society, a heaven on earth, be like? Is it even possible to create a Utopia? If so, how? Would not a Utopia assure personal freedom? What, then, should you do with those who don’t cooperate and violate the Utopian system? If you control or punish them, is there no longer a Utopia?
Because we are in a universe of change, utopia can happen momentarily, but not eternally. An idealistic state is just one end of a polarity.


EIGHT: on relationship between individual and community/state
questions:
What is the ideal relation between the individual and the state? Should the individual serve the state or the state serve the individual? What is the best form of government and what is the worst? When is a man justified in disobeying the dictates of the state? To what extent should the majority rule and thereby act against the freedom of the minorities? When is a man justified in rebelling against the established order and creating a new state? What are the relative merits of the different economic systems (capitalism, communism, etc.).
Human is a part of a community just your hair is a part of your head. Maybe you want to reshape your hair to match your ideal hair style by putting a bunch of chemical and toxic substance. Or you may want to let them be, let them grow long and oily and covered with dust and dirt. Or you may want to wash them and comb them daily and cut them occasionally. It's hard to be a good owner of hair. It's harder to be a good owner of a community/state especially if you don't know how to be one. That's why there are people developing principles and philosophies like capitalism and communism. 

NINE: on education and power
questions:
He who controls education controls the future. What is education? How should the young be educated—what is important and what not? Who should control education: the parents, the student, the society or the state? Should a student be taught to think for himself or to adopt the beliefs of the society? Should man be educated to be free and live for his own interests; or to subjugate his desires to serve others or the state? ¯see Question EIGHT.
Knowledge is power, because intentions and thoughts shape reality. One thing for sure need to be taught is the principle of change. It doesn't matter who teaches it as long as people know so we don't do stupid things and ask stupid questions and blame the society for everything.


TEN: on death and the afterlife
questions:
What happens at death? Is death the end of everything or is there a soul in man that continues to exist beyond death? If so, is that soul immortal or does it too eventually cease to exist? If the soul does continue to exist after death, what is the nature of that existence? If there is an existence after death, is “good” rewarded and “bad” punished? If so, how do you reconcile this with the concept of predestination? And if there is a God of INFINITE LOVE and FORGIVENESS, how to you reconcile punishment?
Death is the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. Nothing just vanish and appear, everything change and transmutate. Good have infinite love and forgiveness because people interpret is as you have infinitely many chances to make a life right. But don't throw yourself at one polarity and then ask god to ignore your karma. All of this is part of a progression so that each cycle you make, you accumulate new wisdom through making mistakes.
