I wanted to share with you a video video from which I have learned something life changing.

“We do not exist” what’s new about this? You might say.

Well what is new this time is that it does not just stop at that point. It moves further, into a higher kind of understanding: an understanding which stems from within you and transcends all of your senses and even transcends your thoughts, your mind and everything you have ever experienced so far.

At some point, you find the answer to those questions “why do we exist?” “what’s the point of it all?” the whies and the hows all merge into one thing: laughter.

You start laughing and you realize that you just don’t exist and that it just does not matter. You do not exist.

Just laugh at how this life does not matter, at how your problems do not matter, and at how amazing it all is. Laughter is the answer to it all.

Ok, these people clearly have been smoking pot or dropping acid.

We don't exist. Complete BS.

If we do not exist then laughter is not the answer because laughter does not exist either.

Kid...

When you consider that you don't exist and that all of this is meaningless and silly does it make your heart feel better inside?

What our heart is most passionate about is why we exist and granting to ourselves our heart's deepest passions is how we exist.

Like my passion for the moment was to pass on a warm and fuzzy to Kid.

How can I think about it if I don't exist?

Am I a man dreaming I'm a butterfly, or a Butterfly dreaming I'm a man?

This stuff has been around forever.

Most of us are dreaming of mass world orgy but s***ted if you'll ever get many to truly admit it.

Who cares what or why we are, lets just all engage in what feels the best!

If we know what we feel is good, will make us and others feel good - there's no problem with it.

The whole world has been treated like a bunch of raging hearts trapped in cages but it will soon be correcting itself.

I said the same thing but more sugar coated.

Actually the question of existence has been posed rather a lot throughout philosophical discussion over time. You may think it's BS but it's still a valid thing to think about.

Yeah, I can just see it now - When you finally break out of your cage the city streets are all going to look like Vicotoria's Secret blew up and littered itself all over the place.

Mothers! Lock up your daughters!

And when Kid gets free of her cage nothing is going to be left of her beloved but a smear on the ground.

Ugh! I'm being silly again - Must slow down.

Freedom without restrictions is no freedom a free man would desire.

The buddhist and/or zen (zen buddhist) version of this idea has actually been miss translated and miss defined over the years and really doesn't suggest that we don't "exist" but rather "existence" as we take it is an illusion... or that the things in this life that we think are important are an illusion... this whole thing gets really deep, very complex... the four noble truths... eight fold path... Sa?s?ra and the cycle of rebirth... yes, I get it.

However, in the sense of the posting, as I take it from the video in the link, is BS.

And they were clearly stoned... the whole uncontrollable laughter thing was a flash-back to my college days when virtually everyone was getting high and laughing their brains off over topics like "we don't exist"...

But... just my opinion.
