That is the composition of atoms. That means everything that we can perceive through our limited perception, is actually, dust. Atom is just another fancy name for the smallest dust we can identify within our perception.
This is something interesting to think about: we are living in a world of dust. We don’t perceive things as dust however, because we are dust itself, and we are limited by our own perceptions as dust-people.
Why should we think we are different than every other living thing? or even non-living thing? Matter is merely clouds of empty space with some “dust” connected to each other.
It’s not like we can prove scientifically anyone has a mind. It is only theoretical people have minds. Minds are not scientifically observable, only clues. If someone tries to prove people have minds under the rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science, no one can prove people have minds. They can prove to themselves “I think therefore I am” , but everyone and everything could might as well be a figment of their own imagination, something invented to satisfy their relational and physical needs.
I don’t exactly know where I’m going with this, I am only typing in as I think.
Scientifically, we cannot prove people have minds, but does that mean people are mindless? or perhaps people are little figments of imagination we deceive ourselves with. If it’s true, then it is really pointless for me to write this any longer because I am only writing this to satisfy myself and my need to use my brain. Fortunately, it’s not true. How do I know it’s not true? Is it blind faith? This is not a rhetorical question, because I’m not sure if I am merely a figment of you, the reader’s figment of imagination. (But I have self-will, so maybe the reader is a figment of my imagination?)
We have to assume that this universe is real with different people with self-will before we go any further. There really isn’t scientific empirical proof that people have minds. Our tech can see brain activity, and it correlates with things we do, but it doesn’t really see people’s minds and see if people are really thinking. We can measure bodily changes in pulse, temperature, facial, bodily changes, but cannot distinguish what is the specific causes. Somehow we know that people have minds, right?
What about all this talk about soul? I recommend reading Beyond Death’s Door, a recollection of patients with near-death experiences, funny thing Google categorized the book as fiction. It will be up to the reader to decide. According to neurologists, people should lose their consciousness if there is no brain activity. But in the book, the author/heart doctor jotted down some interesting phenomenons.
I want to conclude this, but I think it’s better for people to conclude on their own. Perhaps my logic is flawed, and is really in fact not logic at all. I don’t exactly need to see the results. I’m hoping people will see the world more clearly after reading this.
