I'm non-religious. I wouldn't call myself an atheist  - I don't wear fedoras and can aknowledge the good sides of religions.

 

Guesd I'm closer to agnostic.

I'm ambvilent. I don't practice any particular religion but I want to think there's Something on the other side, though every time I try to think about that I end up with an existential crisis and staring blankly into space for like, half an hour

It was a Twi'lek who looked like me. Although she was a dear friend, I am still alive and well. The Jedi teachings are really a branch of Buddhism, which I just so happen to be a Buddhist, irl.

I do that whenever I try to understand how an arbitrary mass of different kinds of cells somehow has formed consciousness and is this thing I call "me".

Yeah, it's kind of a mind bender to try and comprehend how and why we even have the capacity to be self aware and directly focus on understanding our sense of self.

 

I read somewhere that it can take as little as one hundred connected neurons to achieve consciousness, which is a way fucking lower number than I ever would have thought. We all know that neurons are just transmitters/relays for electrical impulses from themselves to whatever else they are connected to. Which lead me to a thought. If say a billion people on Earth all had radios that were on the same channel and could communicate freely between one another and were tasked to perform the same function as neurons (transmit information/stimuli), could that closed system potentially achieve some form of consciousness?


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Thinking about religion or the beginning of time is the reason I have insomnia.

Hey! I'm a jedi too! What color is your lightsaber? Not sure who this "Allah 'el Luke" is, but for some reason, there has recently been an increase in Stormtroopers on my planet. I guess we need the extra protection.


Haha. I just dig the Skywarkers.
