Strange questions that humans have not yet found an answer for!

We all have a unique course of action through out our day. Many of the conversation along with our friends or some that we hear from others talking at times surprise us and gets our brain thinking, but only to later ignore saying this might be beyond human reach. Have you come across any such question through your brain or from others which you think humans have not yet explored or researched or any unanswerable question?

          Hope you do not mind if I pop in here:>)

          Yes....I believe all of the things you mention contribute to who and what we are, and they are our personal parts of the whole story. Perhaps it is like a book with many chapters? Each chapter adds to the whole story, which is the "big scene"?

          In each and every moment, we have the ability to create our own life chapter, which will contribute to the whole. If we are aware of the scenes being created in the rest of the book, we can be more aware of how we orchestrate our lives to "fit" in a way that is harmonious and works well with the whole. What do you think about this idea?
        • Jul 27 2012: Self realization of all of who we are. The integration of feeling and consciousness into understanding pleasure and pain. Giving physical form and expression to the metaphysical for its reflection upon itself in its own journey into self realization.

          Over coming physical death by understanding how the denial of feeling (objectivity) kills the subjective feelings which are essential for life. Then the journey of coming out of the denial of feeling begins.

          Denied feelings as they return to consciousness are called pain. They are called pain because they are feelings which one does not want to feel. Pain then becomes our path back into life out of the vortex into death which we have empowered through our denial of feeling.

          Suffering is created by ones attempt to escape or avoid feeling pain. Once one faces into the pain suffering ceases and the work of processing the pain into conscious sensation that lacks a charge..

          One process pain into a neutral feeling which then has no charge of avoidance by feeling the pain directly with out words or images intervening. A meditation practice helps with this because in meditation one releases focus and expands consciousness. I call this releasing the periphery or boundaries. As one explores ones pain be it emotional or physical, one will notice that the feeling is bracketed with peripheral tension which holds it in place.

          Expressing with voluminous sound the sound which the body wants to make in response to the feeling is an other way to shatter the peripheral tension. Sound with out words because words can not empress feeling they can only intellectualize feeling.

          Another method is to move the eye of your attention, through the field of consciousness identified as pain, in a figure eight or infinity pattern with the center crossover point near the center of the pain. The cross over point some how confounds the mind in such a way that it can not maintain the image/peripheral tension and the tension of the pain collapses.
