+ No answers to existential questions

On the internet you can build an interesting personality based on the second-hand  knowledge you have googled, so that you can fool others into perceiving you as an important and wise person that knows what is right and wrong. You can also pretend to have been places, where you have never been. And you can pretend to be a photographer, if you ´forget´ to mention that the pic, you are using – like this one – is grabbed from the internet. It seems as an exciting world with so many possibilities to imagine. But imagination has nothing to do with reality. It takes two to imagine something and that there is only room for one in that which is real.

On the internet you can build an interesting personality based on the second-hand knowledge you have googled, so that you can fool others into perceiving you as an important and wise person, who knows what is right and wrong. You can also pretend to have been at places, where you have never been. And you can pretend to be a photographer, if you ´forget´ to mention that the photo, you are using – like this one – is grabbed from the internet.

All questions rise from not being at peace, which comes from having replaced, that which is formless, namely that which is you, with a form to be identified as a person living in a capsule of time and space.

Answers to questions serve to make a person seem real. In other words, answers helps you to deny that which is you and enhance that which is not you as if it is real. Answers seems to imply, that there is something special to be found in a world encapsulated by time and space even though nobody have ever found anything that lasts.

Within the context of such a world there are of course answers to questions like to how to build a house, to go from one place to another and similar practical things, but there are no answers to existential questions, because a world encapsulated by time and space does not exist. Hence answers to existential questions are just as meaningless as answers to existential questions in a video game, because there is nobody ´there´.

Where there is nothing peace cannot be found. It cannot be found at al. Neither is it necessary, as because is the oneness of that which is you, and what is formless is endless, so there is no more than peace.
