Do you worry about the heat death of the universe?
I find theories such as these very interesting… questioning the possibilities of how the earth may come to its end as well as other theories questioning it beginning. However, I do not let things such as this worry me… there are much bigger things to worry about in the now rather than ponder on inconclusive theories, that practically will never be proven.
What defines consciousness? Do you think other animals can be considered conscious creatures?
I believe that consciousness varies and progresses in different stages. To one person it could mean to possess the ability to feel and experience physical and emotional changes… whether it pain, love, empathy; the list goes on. When it comes to animals and other living things I definitely do believe that they are considered conscious creatures.
In other situations it could be said that consciousness is just energy. Everything that is and ever will be… like the life in the trees and the power of the sun. Energy never dies it simply just changes its form. You could go onto to argue that ideas such as higher powers are an overview of the unity of all the universes energy summed in a singular word… ‘God’ universally understood as the ultimate consciousness.
How do you create meaningful experience in your life?
To me, life is about making memories and living experiences more over indulging in material things. I’d like to think that I’m quite adventurous and open-minded, the experiences we have in life are massive changing factors onto who we ultimately become. I think to make an experience meaningful it must change us in a way… whether it just a memory that stays with us or part of something that made us grow and understand ourselves a little more.
How do you manage ennui?
I think it’s so important to remain self-motivated and create long term and short-term goals to keep focus. Setting myself challenges and having a desire to improve myself is something that always keeps me occupied.
“I think, therefore I am” or “I am, therefore I think”
I think, therefore I am.
How do you make earnest connection in a world of instant gratification?
I don’t believe that our world is completely of instant gratification.
