It’s not often that you come across a philosopher of sorts, and when you do, you tend to cherish the moments that you spend with the likes.
The conversation could range from anything to everything, but one thing that tends to remain constant is, that all discussions, even though, they might look weird, tend to have their origins in science.
And one such conversation, is what, I would want to share with you today:
Philosopher (P): Have you ever wondered, what if your destiny, if it exists at all, leads you to a place where you didn’t get that chance to go one on one with the creator?
P: What if it didn’t allow you to question Him about the reason behind making you go through all the hardships that you happened to suffer throughout your life?
What if it didn’t allow you to go to Heaven or Hell, depending on your karma to meet your loved ones, in an environment where everything’s perfect?
What if the very science or non-science behind your existence is not what you might have believed in?
What if it’s all an illusion and a combination of reactions to make you believe that what you are is what you are not?
Me: What if?
P: 🙂 . Would be not feel cheated?
Me: Probably yes!
P: Do you want to feel like that?
P: Do you believe in Homeopathy?
P: Do you think it cures?
P: Have you seen this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0Z7KeNCi7g)
P: Why do you think I am speaking to you about the same?
Me: May be (you have gone mad ;)) you want to tell me something?
P: Well, yes and no, yes because I want you and for that matter everyone to think on the basis of sound evidence, and no because, I don’t want you to follow me blindly.
Me: How does it help?
P: That you need to figure out yourself.
And that is where our conversation ended.
Though, with the kind of obvious resistance to the questioning of the beliefs that I had been conditioned to develop over a period of time, and with this philosopher suggesting to get rid of all beliefs and making scientific evidence as the basis of all thinking, didn’t really go along with the very essence of me, yet I decided to give it a shot.
Don’t know whether it would be the be all end all solution to every woes that our human race tend to experience, yet I believe it’s worth trying.
After all, if we weren’t exploring, were we actually living?
