It’s time to make my brain explode and ooze out of my head in that gooey, sticky, way a brain is with the Unfathomables of life.
There are five Unfathomables that are so Unfathomable, regardless of the circumstance, a person in their life must address. When do you think about the Unfathomables? When you’re lying in bed. Thrust into a dark sleeplessness. Forced to contemplate Unfathomable that exists. Unseeable, untouchable, unfathomable.
The first Unfathomable: If Nothingness.
If nothingness after death, then nothingness means our presence wouldn’t exist. We cannot fathom what that would be because to fathom something is to place yourself in that situation, but when in that situation, you yourself is nothingness. It is unfathomable. It wouldn’t be endless darkness because that would be fathomable, that would make you, you, and if yourself is nothing, yourself can’t be yourself because it’s already nothing.
Got it? Okay, moving on.
The second Unfathomable: The endlessness of the universe
Galaxy after galaxy, Milky Way this, Uranus that, the universe is constantly expanding. So as we walk life, we are only a microscopic, super small, tiny speck. Our problems are even microscopic-er, super smaller, tinier, and more speck-ish. Supposing that this as comforting to you as it is comforting to me, it means that as much as stepping on a microscopic organism matters to you, your problems matter to the universe.
The third Unfathomable: The Evolution of Technology
According to way back when a guillotine was considered an appropriate punishment, these techy cell phone thingamajigs that talk to us were considered impossible, only ever portrayed in fairy tales. Nevermind, they weren’t even considered. It was Unfathomable. No one saw it coming. We can communicate with another human being across the world in a matter of moments when, not too long ago (compared to the amount of time humans have existed), it would have been a treacherous journey.
It’s truly unfathomably insane.
The fourth Unfathomable: Pain
Pain is painful, right? But what makes the pain so painful–what about it makes us in distress? It’s uncomfortable, but what makes comfortable so comfortable, or the absence of pain so comfortable? It’s a feeling like any other feeling, so what makes this particular feeling so bad? Pain is such a weird thing because a comfortable feeling, such as a massage exerting the same amount of feeling, isn’t uncomfortable, it’s comfortable.
The problem with explaining these Unfathomables is due to the unfathomableness of these Unfathomables, writing about it and explaining it, is simply unfathomable.
The fifth Unfathomable: Coherent thoughts
Science is all about facts and proof and logic, and the illogicalness of humans is nothing with everything science believes. Our coherent thoughts that we think on a daily basis are bigger than our heads. How do all those memories and ideas and thoughts fit inside our head? It’s absolutely insane. We’re all logic, body, organs, tissue, cells, organelles, up until what happens in our head–up until life. No one knows for sure how life happened; it’s just about unfathomable.
People turn to religion to help fathom the unfathomableness of life and how this unfathomable life began.
The general unfathomableness of the whole shebang that we call life:
By far, the most important Unfathomable is the Unfathomable that displays that there are more than five Unfathomables. The Unfathomables are endless entities reaching to the non-existent four corners of the universe (non-existent: growing forever).
There is, for example, the unfathomableness of who draws the line between water and ice? Mean and nice?
The unfathomableness of how the stars we see in the sky probably aren’t actually there anymore, it just takes that long for the light to reach us… that’s how far away they are. And yet, when a person stands a distance from us we can see them. What’s the difference between stars and people? I mean, physically, a lot I suppose, but really? Why?
The unfathomableness of how every creature that thrives on this planet thrives in a different way and how a one in a million chance (figure of expression– the chance is actually much much much smaller) of earth being suitable for life happened.
The unfathomableness of us all having different personalities.
The unfathomableness of how we still find things impossible when we are surrounded by the impossible, possible, unfathomable: Life.
Never stop dreaming. Never think you’re alone. Because in the great big bulb of unfathomableness, alone is unfathomable.
