John of the Salvis tribe,

Thank you for your greeting, I am doing well thank you for asking, I hope you're doing well.

When you ask if this is my first time, I'm going to assume you mean my first time to this site. Yes, it is my first time here.

The definition of truth is VERY misunderstood, the only truth is casuality.  So, as with everything, the truth is relative. So, if you imagine the truth as linear time, in 1 day there are 24 hours, in 1 hour there 60 minuets, in 1 minuet there are 60 seconds.

So, to a being who only lived 1 minuet, the 1st second would be the cause and the 59'th the effect. The casuality would be those inbetween, which would be the truth.  To a being who lived 1 hour, he has 3600 seconds, much more "truth".

I know a man who is (almost) conscious to my level, who told another man too much too fast... and that man went outside and blew his brains out with a pistol, so... not everyone handles it too well. I handle it well for how much I know, I got my truth from sources not on this planet.

<3

You asked if I think reality is designed? Yes I do believe some form of intelligence was involved and my question is who designed the designer? There may come a time when humans are extinct and our robots have taken on a biological processing unit because it's less energy required and can reproduce on it's own. It may be asking, what designed us?

or who designed humans, (our creator)?

I think life was an experiment which was setup to evolve. Look at the exquisite beauty that can be found in nature and the complexity of life or the diversity.

If you want to know about the grand original designers plan for you and us, look within for the answers, after meditating somewhere peaceful

"what do "we" need to do to find inner beauty and peace that can be used to extend linkages and therefore unity?" Answer >>>
