Existential thoughts not only make us question the world around us, but it makes us think about the bigger picture. And when I say the bigger, I don't mean like what your financial future will look like or who you'll end up spending the rest of your life with. I'm talking way bigger. Like the fact that the Andromeda Galaxy allegedly has two suns. The type of shit that makes you be "Like yo, what the fuck..."
As I'm sitting here watching my son try to read a book by himself (He's only 1 he think he grown) I'm thinking about what it must feel like to be some alien from another galaxy raising their kids. Like what lessons are they trying to teach their kids? What if they're billions of years ahead of us and they have some wise knowledge that we haven't even thought of yet. What are the things that stress them out?
We got crazy shit going on in our country right now, but what if some society on another Earth in another galaxy has the answers. Would we be willing to listen? Or are we too scared to even fathom the existence of another species thousands of lightyears away? We know there's something else out there, it seems nearly impossible that there isn't.
If you've ever been to the ocean, just think about that feeling you get when you look out and you see an endless sight of water. It kinda gives you a weird feeling in your stomach right? Like holy shit, the world is fucking huge and I am so small. My existence is so minuscule in comparison to the Earth, and Earth is one of the smallest planets in the solar system, and our universe is actually small in comparison to other universes. My brain is trippin' right now.
Oh and another thing, how the hell did the brain name itself? Like who's brain was the first brain to look at another brain and be like "I'm gonna call this a brain." The fact that our species is as advanced as it is in comparison to every other animal is crazy. Like I don't see lions inventing math equations. I don't see hogs trying to fly to space. I don't see meerkats studying the greenhouse effect. I don't know why all the animals I'm pondering are characters from The Lion King.
I don't know what the hell I'm talking about honestly. I watched way too many episodes of The X Files in a short amount of time and it messed my perception on life and the world up. But I know I'm not the only one who wonders about all this shit.
Everyday I feel like that "Hits Blunt Once" meme with the hoodie zipped all the way up. And most of the time I'm not even high when I think about this shit. Ok I lied, most of the time it is fueled by nature. Anyways, if there are any aliens reading this, I hope you have a good day and I love you. And technically you humans are aliens to some other species out there, don't forget that.
Thank You Based God for introducing me to martians...
Just a man trying to make the most of his time on this planet.
