Something Greater

I may be an atheist, but that doesn't mean that I don't think there's something greater than all this. I don't think it's anything supernatural, or really anything that resembles a God. I think that the "something greater" is something that's within every one of us. The final frontier is the parts of our mind that our conscious self cannot reach. 

Whether it be through dreams, meditation, religious experience, or mind-altering substances, many people have experienced things they could never have imagined. While the religious would say this is a touch of the divine, there is little evidence that the information in these experiences is caused by an outside force. Therefore, it's evident that every person is capable of imagination far beyond what is accessible in normal waking life. 

We're not all really as boring as we seem.


  1. We need more thought along these lines. We are greater than we could ever imagine and the religious institutions treat us like babies.

  2. Deep thoughts man, keep it up.
