How I Make Anything Reasonable And Possible

Updated on April 23, 2012


This is going to be a short piece of writing. I just want to briefly talk about reason and possibilities, in general terms. I am not sure from where or when I heard the following quote but I love it dearly: “Anything is possible, it just costs more.” This quote says a lot for me.

Cost does not really need to have a monetary connotation. The cost for this piece of writing for me is time and energy. I am not spending any money right now. Well, indirectly I am because I live in a house and the internet has to be paid and stuff like that but right now, in this moment the direct cost for this article is just time and energy. The cost for understanding what I am going to say in this article might be your understanding of this three-dimensional perspective (plus some time and energy). Thus, cost can be anything or many things.

In terms of possibilities … Life seems to present us with an infinite amount of them, as it is always changing and shape-shifting. What was will not always be and what is not always was. That is true of many things: geography, societies, species of animals, etc. To better understand possibilities one has to take into account our history. Much of what was once impossible is now possible. Much of what was dreamed has turned to reality. We take flying in airplanes for granted but that would have been looked at as insanity a thousand years ago, as one quick example. My father has a funny story about his uncle’s reaction to the landing on the moon. The man is said to have told everyone that they were crazy to believe that humans can go on the moon. He pitied them; saying that that is God’s place and man could not go there.

When things may seem impossible to me, I know that I do not understand the topic at hand properly. Or that I do not have enough information about it. Take the topic of extraterrestrial existence. I cannot say that I am crazy about alien stories or anything but I do not dismiss the probability of life existing somewhere else other than on this planet. I do not know everything that is out there, or even know how far out-there stretches … Therefore, it may indeed be possible that aliens do exist.

When my reason fails me, I simply understand that I am lacking information. The best example I can actually think of at the moment is that of illusionists and stage-magicians – the entertainment-type. When they make an elephant vanish out of sight or pull a rabbit out of a hat, for many of us our reason fails. How could a rabbit come out from a hat? Or how can an illusionist make things disappear right from the front of our eyes. Reason fails when there is not enough information available for our thinking to use; when there is no experience from our past to relate to. Mysteries are no longer mysteries when we have all the missing information.

So, the same may be said of Anything. I am not going into any examples here because all my examples are biased but the point is that Anything is possible and Everything is reasonable with enough knowledge. Knowledge is Power and Power means Possibilities. I wish everyone well.


And here is my present for your Spirit and as a Thank You for stopping-by: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU34Rhc4N_A&feature=related

      This is a positive message filled with hope and self confidence and the world needs more messages like this. My grandmother used to say that the best gifts come in small parcels and so it is with this little hub with its big punch!

      I thought you might appreciate this beautiful story because it explains simply how knowledge is there when we are ready to see it:

      True observations. You may have said the hub was going to be short, but as Hemmingway once said of his own work, "It may not have been a great book, but there were a few important things to say," or something like that.

      If tiny particles can form an elephant, a world, or a universe, they might be capable of much more; little green men would be a walk in the park. We have no empirical knowledge of many things : yes, it is all possible.
