This is probably one of the most fundamental questions to be asking myself. I arrived at this place living through this body with no memory of being born. When I look around I’m amazed because everyone else that looks like me is having the exact experience I am, and also don’t know how we got here or have any memory of being born. When we see that people here can die we naturally intuitively know there’s more to us than just this life. This brings rise to ideas like religion, philosophy, and art. Where does this intuitive feeling come from? A human is an animal species that has become so complex it has become sentient. What do I mean by this? I mean right now as you sit there reading this you are being sentient or conscious. Your willingness to read this and my curiosity of writing has brought us to right NOW. <----change of focussssss!!!!!

 

Anyways… I’m going to clearly point out exactly what consciousness is in your experience as you keep reading. If you look at the exact experience you’re having right now you’re probably having a million thoughts in your head about where this is going to go instead of actually just reading and being patient (kudos for those who are just reading ????). The only place that you have ever been in your life is right now. When you think back to the time when you were wondering about why the first paragraph ended like it did you can clearly tell you are not there in reality. What you see when you think about the first paragraph experience is just a memory. The only living YOU that has ever been in either of our experiences is the one right now. Well for me right now, but for you whenever you are reading this. When you look for yourself within the experience you are having right now a thought can pop up and say it’s your body stupid, or you go to that intuitive feeling of knowing you’re alive. When you go to the completely natural feeling of being alive in your experience right now there are no borders between you and experience. Which is the feeling that creates strong beliefs of religion and curiosity of philosophy. All this being said my take away is being human literally means to be an open possibility.
