  • Jun 25 2012: Well, I'm 28 and about to start a new chapter in my life, I'm far from having the full picture,but here's what I've learned so far:

    1) Never associate yourself or befriend anyone out of pity or someone that is beneath you. It may happen accidentally, but once detected, break off the relationship immediately.

    2) We are all essentially apes with iphones. Though our technology, culture and society have advanced exponentially we still bear many animal instincts that we'll likely have for a long time to come. Proper application of this knowledge as a reality filter has great predictive power.

    3) We are spiritual beings. I'm not sure how or why, but we are.

    4) The meaning of life may be to have as many fit offspring as possible so that one day some distant progeny may actually know what the meaning of life is

    5) Love is a chemical

      "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience
      but Spiritual beings having a human experience "

      Cheers ....
      And Hope You make A lot More Mistakes in Your Upcoming Life...
