Are You Alone? (In The Universe)

  • Published: 02 June 2014
  • Are you alone? To answer this question we have to take a look what "you" are first. What are you made of and where you stand in this universe. Are you your body? Your atoms? And how are your parts connected to the big picture?

          Human beings are a perfect example of the "Ship of Theseus" In a nutshell, if you have a historic old ship from a great battle in history, and preserve it over the years, eventually it decays and you have to replace the wood/metal/ropes. At what point is it no longer the ship that fought in the great battle of yore? When did it cease being that ship? The same thing happens in your body every 5-7 years.

                                Wait... if all my atoms change in a year that includes those that form neurons..... how can memories (data) linger a process like that, where their physical support is being substituted?

Even science is proving that there is basically no "you" or "me", we are all connected and basically the universe is one interconnected entity with seemingly separate parts, but in reality they are inseparable. That shit is psychedelic as fuck.
