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?

  • Jul 23 2012: A random thought… Why do they say you can't change your past? I would say is generally accepted that what you do today is past tomorrow… So actually you can influence partially your past, by paying good attention at what you are doing today.

      You are suggesting that by being aware and mindful today, we can influence our future past!

      Jul 26 2012: The past is for reference only. Being mindful, to me means acting in certain pre-determined set of ways. Which would inhibit creative behavior.
    • Jul 26 2012: If you look at your life as a free fall through time/space then you will learn how small course corrections will influence the trajectory of your decent. The wake you leave behind affects everything in the universe more then you could ever know.

      We are blessed with the ability to consciously make these corrections, while other matter is not. This is why if we live our lives radiating love and tolerance we make the universe a better place for all who inhabit it.
    • Jul 27 2012: The past is changed by feeling and understanding the content of the past. To do this one must express the sound the body originally wanted to make in response to the feelings which were felt in the past. Sound with out words. Just the raw sound because words have already intellectualized the experience. The body holds the tension which was created in order to block the feelings from being expressed in their raw form. When the body is allowed to express feeling as voluminous sound the vibrations generated releases the body's original tensions which had been inhibiting expression.

      This tension release in the tissue of the body simultaneously deepens the memory around the original event and expands ones memory of the past on many levels. This is because with in the numbness that the tension was holding in place is also lost (numb) memory. As the tension is release memory returns.

      What could be considered the unknown or unconscious becomes more consciousness, which in turn brings up more feelings for processing through expression. It seems to be a never ending journey into the past until the past is completely processed into consciousness. Life gets a little bit better with each step.
