    How do we know?

    ok heres a brain teaser for you guys, we are the human race but how do we know that were not just a micro organism of the skin of another being or object? Think about it before you answer because each individual has micro organisms living on their skin and theres no way to get rid of them but do those micro organisms have brain and personalities and do they know that there univer actually has legs and wonders around on its own universe. Think about it!.

    In my most imaginative moments, I have thought about this very question. We do not know the answer to this, yet it is very provocative in its possibilities. I would certainly hate to think that I am in the cellular make up of some ogre's carbuncle. It as been suggested that there are millions if not greater sums, of universes, within, what we conceive, as the one which we view with telescopes. It certainly tends to boggle the brain in its consideration.

    It is said that the earth is alive, we in turn live on the earth. We may not be the ants on it's back but we are feeding off of a living thing like parasites. Then again it may only make sense in my mind.........loved the question.

    Personally, I believe we are spiritual beings that are hosted in human forms until we understand & learn about the way of enlightenment where we will be brought back in the spiritual plane.

    So, only after we have achieved the understanding of enlightenment, we will continue to reborn and take in the human form where our bodies will return back to earth when we died though our spirits will be reborn again in another human form.

    I am still seeking the way of enlightenment where it will help me the realize where I come from and return.

    I don't know, but I hope whatever giant thing it is that we're "parasiting on" doesn't dump a giant, Universe-sized, load of Neosporin ointment on us all...  And here's a question:  How much Neosporin would it take to rid the giant thing of our universe and everything in it?    smile   Also, does the giant host know about Trick or Treating, or does it just think a lot of us, microorganisms, change in appearance once a year??
