    Old Thoughts

    I used to think, this restless mind, the burden it was, like a virus. Starts somewhere in your mind somehow, and eventually consumes the entirety of your thought process (maybe existence?). Funny things are today I find it the cure that enlightened me, and made me an...

    How big is the universe?

    Is there other life out there? Why does society so judgey? Why can't I do what I want? It's my body and I should be able to. Am I going to turn out like my mom? Will my future kids hate me? What if I lose the people close to me? Will I end up alone? Why do I still feel along if...

    Stuff

    I am always questioning everything around me. Hell I even question my own mind and want to know how and why it works. Why I am the way I am. It drives me crazy that I cannot pinpoint what makes me me inside my head. I do not believe we house ourselves in our mind. We are only...

    And Why Not?

    If we accept everything the way it is told, what do we really learn? My classmates tire of my inquisitiveness. It doesn't matter whether we're in English, Biology, Religion... everything my teachers say is followed by a "why?" A few of my teachers admire my curiosity...

    A Part Of Me

    Look Up First, Ask Second

    There is just so much information out there. Every time I learn something new, or read about something, questions pop into my head. My favorite for most things is "why?" but I also like proposing experiments or asking "what would happen if...?" When you stop asking questions you...

    To question is to live fully; to get the answer is bliss

    There Are No Answers

    I question everything. Even the existence of truth. Epistemology the philosophers call it. I don't think it exists. Sure, we all develop beliefs about things. But I have a deep seated intuition that this world is not what it seems. We are all living in an elaborate illusion...

    I question my decisions, over and over again.  I never seem to think that I made the right choice for anything.  But it always seems to work out okay.  So maybe someday I will trust my own instincts.

    Currently Questioning Everything.

    I tend to question everything. Authority, rules, people....life. So many things are so odd or pointless that you just have to question them. So many things fail to make any sense to me... especially when I question about how the world came to be and such. It kind of scares me =/
