Da Vinci who is considered to be the great genius of all time, spoke about science and art. His main emphasis was on realising that, “everything connects to everything else.” Philosophers have discussed about ‘absolute truths’ in great detail. They have vaciallted between denial of truths and it’s affirmation.
Everything that is existing is a paradox. Matter and Anti-matter, positive and negative charges, light and absence of light are all live examples. We know that life as such has no meaning, but we live. There may be no ultimate truth about life, but only illusions. Maybe there are millions of truths, that can never be untangled. Maybe there exists love free will and an independent man enjoys complete freedom. Maybe we are results of actions, that are influenced by internal thinking and external factors. Maybe, we have a purpose. Maybe not. Maybe all of this co-exist. If everything is a paradox why is it have to be one truth?
It’s not possible to answer all of these. If it’s necessary or not, depends on each men’s thirst.
We will never know the purpose of life until we die. We will never know what we are untill we cease being beings. What happens next is an unsolved mystery. But, are lives worth living? Are we taking each others’ lives for granted? These are million dollar questions to be answered.
We are mere star dusts, trivialities in the grand scheme of the Universe. But dont small things matter the most? Like atoms. They are quintessential particles in every element. Each minute nano particles make different elements and those elements make compounds and those diverse substances and components bond together to create living and non-living entities. All entities in its entirety create a vast Universe. All of us are parts of a whole. Yet, different and unique. Together we create something. We call it by names we choose.
If the same energy that make every other thing make us, if we are made of same particles that make million other things, if we are parts of a whole, shouldn’t we be more considerate for fellow beings, future species, environment and every other thing around us?
We kill animals and plants for us to survive. But what about lives that are lost for reasons other than survival instincts? Like triggering a suicide, murders, mass killings etc.
“We will never know the value untill it’s gone”, is something that we come across often. It’s found to be the universal science of human beings every where. But with limited knowledge and resources, it is impossible to find the value of a life. We really don’t know and we will never know. Not knowing doesn’t make life worthless. Definitely, doesn’t make others life worthless.
We believe nature has its own ways. There are many who will never be born. But here, we stand forming a part of livin’ beings that are already born. Shouldn’t we be more concerned about others life?
Does all of this make death worthless? Maybe. May be not. Maybe paradoxes exist. We will never know.
