Share Your World — Going Deep

Share Your WorldFor today’s Share Your World edition, Melanie said that she’s asking a few philosophical questions. While she’s going deep with her questions, I’m going to wade in the shallow end of the pool with my answers.

Must we have evidence to know the truth?

It helps, although the Republicans in Congress can’t seem to acknowledge the truth about their president despite all of the evidence about his misdeeds and incompetence.

How much control does a person have over their life?

You can control only your own actions and life, but you have little control over the actions and lives of others and how that might affect your own life. You can only do what you can to make the best of it.

What is gravity and how does it work?

According to Albert Einstein, gravity is “a consequence of the curvature of spacetime caused by the uneven distribution of mass.” I have no idea what those words actually mean, so don’t even ask me to explain how it works. All I know is that if you drop something, it falls, and that’s somehow due to gravity.

Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness? How about vice versa?

I don’t think experiencing happiness or sadness is dependent upon having experienced the opposite. As the old song goes, if you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If your sad and you know, but you don’t want to show it, go take a nap and sleep it off.

    I have always felt we should get a script to go with Life. Or at the very least, a map so we know where the ditches are and where we are going to bump into a wide, deep river or quick mud. It doesn’t work that way. We come into this life blind and we stumble our way through it as best as we can. Some people have an easier or more productive road than others.

      I don’t know about a script, but perhaps a copy of “Life for Dummies.” 😉

    I decided to duck this week’s questions but the one I thought was the one about truth. Because I feel that truth is subjective. If Einstein makes your head explode, go look up Newton instead.

    Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World! Very thoughtful answers, and Einstein makes most people’s heads explode. Big brain theory? 😆
