My theory of everything Preface Alone in the night, there are two fundamental forces of existence. Protons. And Electrons. They are alone, but also combined. Combined in an eternal dance around each other. Compelled by the sheer force of their very existence. Raw. Pure. Force. Introduction Now, if I may quote myself: To expand on this: There are two crucial and basic neurotransmitters in the human brain, which are associated with very powerful feelings and which cancel each other out. Are opposed to each other. If one goes up, the other goes down. Dopamine and Serotonin. (there are cases were both can be up, temporarily, like love or getting drunk). Dopamine is Thanatos. Serotonin is Eros Mind Blown. Well it actually fits very well, if you know about this stuff. If your serotonin is up, it makes you very peaceful and in harmony and a feeling of oneness. Dopamine in high doses makes you very focused, very cold, very calculating. See what I mean? It freaking fits. Unknown to Freud at the time. I say this guy is a genius. Even if he was also full of it in some respect or the other, or saw things just .. wrong. AND: Philosophers actually DO theorize that electrons carry ravishingly small pockets of experience or feeling. I say: Protons and electrons. Thanatos and eros. Life force. The rational: what we call our consciousnesses, this subjective THING, this experience, this whatever - it needs to come from somewhere. It can not come out of nothingness - that would be magic, not science. Not our universe. Just as with energy or matter and everything else. There needs to be a source. So it already needs to preexist within the matter IN SOME KIND OF form. Logical, isn't it. Consequences That also means that a tree is most definitely feeling something. Just without a consciousness because no central nervous system. But science has shown that trees very much behave like people in many ways. And they know when humans are around. And I go further: I think those basic life forces influence the formation of life in its many forms in ways we haven't fathomed yet. Illustration: biology can say what photosynthesis is. But it can not really explain, WHY this works as it does. In general: biology is a brilliant engineer compared to us puny pitiful human clowns. I theorize: because those basic life forces - proton and electron - thanatos and eros - help evolution to find structural expression, using those forces. Further: What is human, then? Human as such is Thanatos being used by Eros to express itself. That is the basic duality of pleasure and pain, of having to decide between the two, constantly. That is what humans do - in contrast to primitive life forms which more or less just do. So the human in you is basically a dead shell, but a very brilliantly designed and useful shell which Eros within you uses to express itself. But it is also used by the shell. And combined they are in an eternal dance. A golden and a red ribbon, reaching up like dancing copulating snakes.
