The Question without an Answer
Every day I ask myself, is life really worth living? I hope that maybe I will get a different answer, but I don't know if I will ever get a different answer. Is life really worth living? I wouldn't be able to know without experience non-living. I don't know what is one the other side, even if there is another side. Without the knowledge of living and non-living, I couldn't make a comparison to answer the question, Is life really worth living?
Through religious perspectives, the time in which we enter the non-living status, we are judged by another worldly being that has been watching over us since birth and is judged if we should live happily or not in the non-living. I'm surprised that when religious people tell me these things that they can keep a straight face because it is utterly ridiculous to think about. Another person, place or thing out in existence is always watching over me? Man, do I feel bad for that person, place or thing. They are watching a depressed, suicidal, normal functioning person grow from a small child to adult without fast forwarding through the boring parts. Some religious perspectives have stories written upon the difference between the good and the not good places that we are sent to after being judged. It seems that the good portion can only be described as the best place ever, but the other side is explained in more gruesome detail making it the more interesting place to end up going to. Is this because that the majority of everyone that gets judged is not worthy of getting into a good place? I mean it is stated that by wrongdoing any one of the sins and by not following everything that is listed throughout multiple complex writing pieces then the person is not worthy. So, if I commit one of the many wrongs, then I am automatically disqualified into going to a good place once my non-living starts, so why is it worth living? I know that I will be disqualified because it is much easier to commit one of the many wrongs without knowing it, so I already know that I cannot be allowed in a good place. This is why the religious spreaders came up with an alternative. They knew that you wouldn't ever be worthy of getting into a good place unless immediately after being born, you died. They came up with a cheat! If you accept all the wrongs that you've done, then you will be cleansed of all of them. It is quite an amusement to listen to the religious spreaders when they spout off everything about their religion. They will try to ruse the listeners, and therefore, listening to the religious crowd is incorrect. Life isn't worth living after their answer.
The young crowd understands what the question means. Is life really worth living? The young, with their naive minds, would question if there was another life out there to be lived. They would confuse the questionnaire with their fascinating thought process. Is there another life out there worth living and if so, is it worth more to live that life than my own? My sight comes from my head, while another person's sight comes from that person. I don't know if I'm the last one alive, put into a simulation with copycats and experimented upon for further simulations. I look at my parents and wonder if they are really living? I walk down a busy street and wonder if all the others around me are living. Do they have control over their bodies like I do mine? Can they hear and feel everything as well? I don't know, but I know that if I destroy another copycat, that I will be put behind steel and iron. I know that I cannot be the only living one on this planet because if I was, then everything would be made for me, and revolve around me. Not a single thing was made for me, instead, it seems that everything was made to delete me from this simulation. If my life was a part of a simulation, then I know that then it wouldn't be a life worth living.
In order to answer this question, I think that I would need to live other lives. I need to see life from their perspective and see how everything would go for them when they go from living to non-living. Only then, after living through them, would I understand if my life is worth living, thus having an answer to the question.
