Life in the Universe.

Universe.
Life out there in the Universe.

We have to understand, perhaps from a more logical, philosophical perspective that everything in life purveys a plan: there is no one single adventure, expedition or act which actually occurs for no apparent reason, regardless of its fortuitous, or un-fortuitous outcome. Even more horrendous events are perpetrated for some devious, sometimes spurious device. And so we deduce, everything that happens serves a purpose, therefore, perhaps to even suggest we as basic humans have this inbuilt curios element that serves no definitive explanation might be the greatest understatement mankind could ever make.

Maybe somewhere beyond our own natural realms of understanding lies some secreted entity or race that patiently waits our contribution, be it significant or insignificant. Perhaps there's a point in every species' existence when curiosity has driven them so far towards the boundaries of desperation they have no other option but to reach out expectantly and embrace whatever lurks amongst the murky depths of space.

And I suppose until we actually embark on some inexorable voyage it will always remain merely conjecture. But what we can be certain of, with an unequivocal certainty is, mankind will never stop thinking, unless of course mankind simply ceases to exist. As long as one person draws one breath, we should assume it will be accompanied by one thought. And no matter how far back we accelerate ourselves, even if we return to the very kindling of life, we see man propagate his thoughts.

Etched delicately over the walls and ceilings, in the bowels of caves, neanderthal man scrawled drawings in animal blood. His emergence into the great wide yonder was heralded with neoliths, stone circles, pyramids and standing stones; mankind began his epic journey towards salvation and perplexed himself with the most monumental enigma imaginable:

What created this that I view? How was it created, and what is my significance amongst it?

Some might argue, and probably from an entirely honest position, that those are secrets we might never know the answers to: They are God's secrets, and only God alone knows their true value. And maybe they're right, maybe we will never know the truth, reach out and touch it, or embrace it with one final act of compassion. But that doesn't mean we souldn't at least try.

Just maybe we have a moral obligation to God to attempt it, or perhaps just a duty to ourselves. For if not we fail everyone; but especially us.

And at that point we must ask ourselves what we seek: Do we wish to know where them dark secrets of our universe originated, where did God come from, or do we wish to know about other planets, life forms or their alleged journeys to visit us? What is Time? How was the universe created?

I would assume each individual has their own interest, slightly different from the next persons; perhaps entirely unique to them.

Yet there are a certain amount of fundamental questions which provoke us all: They are larger questions whose magnitude sometimes gets lost in their own enormity. They might be basic when asked; people simplify their complexity, yet they leave even the most ardent scholar's mind swimming with confusion when they're presented.

An eminent scientist once said that any model of our universe must meet specific criteria, that being, a paradigm must fit a cosmological, mathematical and scientific criterion or be exempted from further discussion. In other words any theory that does not match those massive esoteric traits needed to be excluded from further debate.

And although I might personally agree that any good thesis must match them established borders, forensically there is a problem with that initial diagnostic evaluation: That being, most people, the masses would not understand those specific rules if presented to them.

We should therefore naturally assume that although a cosmological, mathematical or scientific doctrine needs to be formally established, a more elementary foundation needs to be formulated.

Below is a list of chapters for the Metaphysics Anthology. The book itself is designed as abit of fun! One man thinking out loud. You should not see it as science, merely enjoy the imagination of the human mind in full swing.
