What ruins life

Post #1

Post by Compassionist »

Life would be awesome if there were no suffering, unfairness and deaths. These things ruin what could be an amazing experience. I feel so much grief about all the suffering, unfairness and deaths. I wish I could go back in time and prevent all suffering, unfairness and deaths but I can't. If I were all-knowing and all-powerful, there would be no suffering, unfairness and death. I would just make every being equally all-knowing and all-powerful and give them an infinite number of universes each so all will be equally weatlhy and healthy and wise and eternal.

It's what we do in the middle that counts, I think.

It only counts if it can be saved, think I. Ultimately the Physical Universe does not count if it cannot be saved. Therefore whatever we do, doesn't count no matter even if we evolved to endure as long as the PU does...
Yes. Should we live forever, and should there be no judgement day, nothing really matters beyond our immediate gratification.
Best wishes, 2RM.
Perhaps self gratification is a symptom of the belief in the illusion that matter matters?
You might be quite correct, and entirely right. I could not possibly comment.

Best wishes, 2RM.
And yet here you are, doing the impossible!
Ha ha! Only if saying 'No comment' is a comment. I think there is plenty of room for interpretation, there.

Best wishes, 2RM

Everything counts, everyone matters.

I mean in a realistic way - but you tell me. Why does everything/one matter if it/they cannot be saved?

Thinking that unfairness, suffering and death ruins life, to me, shows that one doesn't truly appreciate life at all. Like it's been said, you can't appreciate the 'good' without experiencing the 'bad'. A perfect would would be boring, IMO: seeing perfectly, eating perfectly, living perfectly....unless, humanity's nature itself was changed somehow. :confused2:
Have a great, potentially godless, day!
