Considering that in reality we know next to nothing.

. You mentioned not knowing a true answer unless one experienced it. We all had different experiences to share knowledge on.
I am also the type of person, if I don't know something I will look for the answer or at least do my best. Like the asbugers question. I really didn't know much about it. But from someone else's experience I found myself falling close in that category. I used that question as a learning experience for myself.
If I can inspirer or someones day a little better and learn from there experience it's a win, win for everyone. A way to learn from others experiences along with my own.

Whatever you believe is true. There is no 'truth', all there is is you, reacting through your senses relative to your 'place' in the world. You came, at your birth, from the inside of the universe to the outside of the same.
All there is is awareness - you could also call it 'experience' - your experiences, whatever they may be only effect me in the sense of the collective mind tallying.

@ Busby. All you mentioned is very true.
I never truly understood what all this information/experience collecting is for. Today I was having a talk with an 84 year old who struggles with everyday things, things only a year ago she had no problem doing both mentally and physically. I hear that same story many times over. Maybe it's the need to mentally grow and expand. One of the few things that sets humans apart from the rest of life.
Where does that "collection" go? What's the point in it? I can only trust that collective drive is there a reason. Maybe the point in it all is to simply pass it on like a good book.

Collecting information (for that is what the universe is all about) is directly connected to evolution. It doesn't 'go' anywhere - it, (the collected info) is seen as the world /universe we see today. We can also see how the world in which we now live has developed from what it once was to what it is now. In moment everything (due to constantly added information) is speeding up. We can hardly keep up with all the advancements being made in all corners. You and I and elephants are constantly in touch with the collective unconscious, we call this feedback. It works both ways. The crunch of autumn leaves under your feet is a good example.
Human beings aren't set apart from the rest of life. All is One. The universe (that thing we call god) is one great mind - and you are part of it. You and I and the lions in the jungle are the windows through which the universe can observe itself. It was observing itself before the BigBang and will do so when the next BB comes along.
It (the universe) craves knowledge which it gets through experience, it sets no standards, no morals, it allows (so to speak) anything. This freedom is what we really call free will.
How you deal with life is up to you.

It's interesting how you mentioned that life is speeding up. it's hard for me to keep positive about this topic. With everything going faster and faster it's only a matter of time before we get ahead of ourselves and burn ourselves out. Like a virus that runs out of hosts. in a spiritual sense we all are connected. In a physical sense humans have a few differences that make us human. We used to have foresight unlike most creatures do. We seem to be loosing that as things are speeding up. For example as we see things a week in advance it's takes 2 weeks for us to process what happened and what to do next unless we let technology do that for us. We also don't have time for true human connections. Everything is impersonal and cold. For my job we had monthly staff meetings in person. I didn't mind the meetings it was a time to connect with other staff and catch up on things. We had our first video meeting last week. It didn't seem real, seemed like your watching someone else's staff meeting on TV. Right now that what connecting with others is. So artificial and cold. That brings a distorted reality and loss of identity. We're loosing the ability to connect and function on a human level.
It seems like we're already burning ourselves out and devolving. There's an illusion of advancing because of all this stuff we created but we're not. Physically speaking were becoming primates with technology that is in control of us.

Another reminder, the Admins have requested 2-3 sentences when quoting others. (clears throat, Busby?)

Sorry Miss H and mods, I was confused about the quote thing, I actually thought it meant something else entirely! I get it now

Crow is an excellent choice!

I miss watching the crows from my old job visiting at lunch time, they were extremely clever.
