A dubious and unoriginal rehash.
...and integrating it with my own world view, I realise now we'll never reach the summit of the scientific mountain. Just when it seems we have "The theory of everything" a further stretch towers above us tempting us to push on for that view of all creation.
That only applies to the physical realm.
Perhaps what we are missing is the possibility that WE are the creators of it all.
Horse manure! If you can not yield to a higher power and become one with universal spirtual harmony; then you will be at odds with all the forces of the universe both physical and meta-physical. Being atuned to the vibrations of peace and truth makes you a part of it not - the source of it. If you liken yourself to a droplet of water then you can join the power of the seas, or cast yourself ashore to dry up and add nothing.
Blasphemous if you are a person of conventional religion, enlightening when you connect to the divine spirit in us all.
Again, we are only a cog. The machine can run without us or run us down if we do not heed the call to respond. Philosophy or theology must have hands and legs, lest it be a selfish endeavor in vanity.
.... one's dominance over another is only an apparent phenomena.
Dream on....Evil can prevail if justice does not rise up against it. Life is a struggle. To believe that we create our own reality can have grave consequences. Reality and peace are already in place. All you must do is find it. There are several ways to get there, but ultimately it is to find harmony with each other and nature.
I think you are correct however in stating that we will never find this on an intellectual level. Nirvana only will come through spirtual enlightenment. Fleetingly you may find it the here and now - and some more than others will accomplish this. However, that journey can bring peace to anyone that seeks it and lets love rule their soul..
Depending on where you place your view will determine your perception of limitation. We are infinite. Perhaps this is the real fear, not death and oblivion but an acceptence of our eternal being. This was expressed by Achillies in the movie Troy, "The Gods envy our mortality, it gives life meaning and drama" Without an end beginnings are no longer necessary. So the creation of death makes life possible.
The end of death is the goal. Dying a thousand death's is the fruit of arrogance and pride. Maybe Earth is hell. Finding ethereal peace may be an inert realm that is tied to the vastness of an unending universe where time space or consciousness have no meaning. Peace is the prize.
