Most difficult questions to answer – Part1


This is the PART-1 of the two part series which I am posting.

I have always wondered about things like the, Birth of Universe, Presence of God, The planets, Countless Stars, Religions etc and I know that answering these questions is the most difficult part for any of us mortals. Even if some one comes up with an answer, it is bound to be controversial and not all would subscribe to.

Before starting let me iterate that these are the most difficult questions to answer. I got these series of questions from “selfgrowth.com”. I have put my perspective to each of the questions below and hope to gather others perspective too. These questions are of type such that you can not apply logic, you cannot search in Google, and neither could you find the solution in any of the books. There might be as many perspectives as the number of people on this planet, but for that you need to think deep, a bit.

Let us commence.

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?

Universe is like irrational numbers, you never know the exact value of it, and if you try to find it, you will be lost in its intense pattern.

It doesn’t come from anywhere, because whatever possible “where” are “there” in the universe.

It is made of null, God perhaps forgot to do the “null check” 🙂

Actually the existence of universe is “the most” difficult single question to answer. And I bet I can argue with any one who wishes to answer it. I may not be able to prove myself right but I can prove them wrong, bring it on :). If you say it comes from something, then where does that “something” comes from and if you say it was already there then go take a tea break.

Purpose might be to act as a container. Like the contents of web pages on the web are all contained inside the <HTML> tag. So the universe might be like the <HTML> tag and everything else its content.

Does it change!!! If we go by Big Bang theory it is still expanding, but my question is if it is expanding then where is it stretching its boundary to. Consider a balloon, when we blow air inside, it expands because it has space to expand; maximum it can expand is the volume of the universe because it is contained inside the universe. If universe is expanding then it too needs to be inside something. So does it mean the universe doesn’t has any boundary, POSSIBLE.

God knows. Btw where is God? Inside the universe or outside the universe?

The functionality I believe depends on the activities of its content. It is like; does your behaviour control you age or your age control your behaviour?

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 thing yes! And he\she is above the Gods described in the religions of ours. The so called God might be a medium to experience the ultimate bliss, peace, fulfil our purpose in this universe etc.

It might be something that we haven’t comprehended till now. Something which is beyond our imaginations. It is hard to believe that the God has a human kind of structure.

Don’t know, doesn’t seems possible. Universe I think has left things in motion and seeks feedback from each atom inside it for deciding the next step. So instead of God, I believe it is we who decided the movement of events. He just fulfils our wish by processing our request depending on our action.

I think man has been bestowed with the responsibility of balancing the flora and fauna on this planet along with bringing each human on this planet to share the same platform and bring equality among all. Just like we have delegates and events in various programming languages, I believe man has been delegated the work to manage the planet better. All his events are ultimately notified to the feedback loop that takes decision for its next event. Today’s world runs on the Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest, but it is responsibility of fit people to lead the way for the unfit ones and make them what they are rather than leaving them behind to rot.

As said earlier the good and bad depends on the feedback loop, if we are able to manage the planet well the good feedback would trigger a positive event and likewise.

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?

Can not say about the place in the Universe, but definitely man holds the highest place on the earth. He is like the CEO of the earth and responsible for anything that happens here.

When we take the universe into account and define the stature of man, the word insignificant looks insignificant.

I do think that the universe is conscious of man and tries its best to be conscious of each individual.

Depends on our action, the feedback loop decides whether it is warm, friendly, hostile etc.

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?

Duniya kya hai – Maya hai J. I believe reality is something that we can not envision so have to content with what we see.

Mind is like Universe where thoughts are like Humans.

If humans are real, thought too are real.

Mind doesn’t have boundaries, so can not compare it. Can you put a limit to what you can imagine?

Analogy explained in previous questions.

Truth is something that sends positive feedback to the loop and helps create positive events.

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?

Life indeed has some randomness in it. Some leads to positive outcomes, others to negative ones. But having said that we can not control these random events, as said for all the things, universe too is not perfect.

Controlling things to a very large extent is in our hands. It is like you go for the interview for a job, you might get selected in few of the companies and few other wont select you even if you were better than others depending on the mood, panellists, questions etc. After that say you get offer from 3 companies, you would finally be selecting one of them by considering all the pros and cons. So here you have controlled the outcome for over 95% of the events, but you not getting selected for some of the companies might be those 5% that you can not control. I believe for most of us if we think positively we realize that we have got what is best for us.

PS: I believe that at least 95% – 99% of things if not more are under out control. Our action decides the outcomes and our thought are as important as our actions. When it comes to the functioning of God I believe, depending on our actions and thought we are given choices to follow while considering other’s actions too. It is like when I request a page say “Google.com”, I am clear about my objective that is to get to the Google page. So my request then gets routed through various routes depending on the web traffic but ultimately I will reach the “Google” server. Choice that we have with us is to either use a 64kbps connection or 2Mbps connection, an ADSL or a Broadband etc :).

PART-2 arriving soon and “soon” is relative :).

Hope to get your perspectives on this post.

    Hey….its amazing post…great to see something on GOD, spirituality coming up from you. I agree with your point that everything is relative in this universe. The feedback loop is going on deciding the path of our lives and this universe.
    I must say that I am impressed by your writing skills:) Will be waiting for your part-2 soon(I know soon is relative so make it sooner:P).
