The Animal starts to think

They say that there is no limit to imagination. That our thoughts are like butterflies, zig-zagging through the winds.

And thus we ask ourselves lot of questions. Some we know the answers to...but just ask for the fun of it. And some that we don't the answers yet.

Some of these unanswered ones are hyped a little too much by our beloved hollywood stars and directors. Aliens, spaceships, distant galaxies, those extra-terrestrials with long boney fingers.

But before even venturing beyond our blue umbrella, we have enough questions to answer right here on this rock that we call earth.

Why do you think we are here? And not on any other planet – like Mars or Venus or Neptune or Pluto or some hell-blazing rock spinning at speed of 15 trillion miles an hour & generating some 119 trillion giga-watts of raw energy?

If your answer is that all these monstrous rocks can’t support life because they don’t have water, then I ask, what is it in the water that it can support life and something like hydrochloric acid can’t?

I mean, both of them are colorless. You can’t tell one from another till you taste it or better still “drop it”.

Then there are other things to ask yourself.

Ever wonder why do you wake up at dawn and sleep at dusk?

Why your body is designed the way it is?

If scientists say that the human body is the most magnificent machine made by nature, then why is there a need of other designs (organisms)?

Why is that even though we have a superior anatomy and state-of-the-art nervous system, that we are more prone to diseases than insects?

In fact, insects cause us diseases.

Whom do “we” cause diseases? Do we? Or Don’t we?

I’ve long back read Issac Asimov’s “Breeds There A Man”. It says that humans are bred, like cattle & chicken. They are experimented upon by some powerful beings who want to achieve stability in one of their experiments. These experiments are conducted in a sealed utensil (that can very well explain the sky that we see). That we are millions in a single drop that they are seeing under their “microscope-equivalent” device.

And the story says….that if the experiment goes wrong, they just wipe the slate clean and start all over.

Is that what a disaster mean to us? Wiping us clean and replacing with other specimens?

I'm not saying that I am an atheist.
But some things really keep you thinking. Oh and by the way, if you ever happen to meet God, how will you recognise Him? What makes you believe there is God?

As the famous "Morpheus" has quoted in the movie "The Matrix" - "Is is air you are breathing?".

I want to ask the same question. Is it real what you think is real?

Think about it. There’s lot to uncover, before we even peek out of our stratosphere.

I don't know the answers. But every question must be answered. So there will come a day for each of them.
