After years of analyzing religions, interactions, scientific data, etc., these are my formulated ‘religious’ beliefs on Life, Death, and our Universe.
I will start with a Lawrence M. Krauss quote on our creation.
"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.”
Jesus was a prophet, such as Moses or Muhammad, but he was not “The Son of God.” Why? God, as a physical being, does not exist. God is the natural force that governs all life in our Universe. Even a single atom is too exponentially complex to be just a sheer coincidence. What caused The Big Bang? What keeps galaxies from tearing themselves apart? ‘God’ is the force that keeps our Universe from falling into complete chaos, and is this Universe the only Universe?
There are 4 forces acting on celestial bodies; strong nuclear, electromagnetic, weak nuclear, and gravitational. When all 4 are in equilibrium, life can occur. When out of equilibrium, there is only emptiness (dark space) or chaos (center of galaxies). Prior to The Big Bang, all the forces were one, along with all the matter ever of our Universe. That combined energy is the very foundation of everything in existence. That incomprehensible energy is divine.
So what happens when we die? The brain releases its remaining amounts of Dimethyltryptamine, the chemical released in small amounts when you dream. Just that small amount is enough for your mind to alter time and simultaneously create a world with its own projections of people. When this mass dumping of DMT occurs, the dream becomes reality. You see your life flash before you as your astral mind drifts through space and time, which are now elastic. As you let go of your former life, you migrate on to the next host fetus which will be You. Matter is neither created nor destroyed, just simply recycled and reused.
That is my outlook on life, death, and our Universe. I hope you found the read informative and I apologize if my beliefs offend you. No religion is right. They are a way for Man to attempt to explain and comprehend, to feel less insecure and oblivious to the phenomena that occur around us.
