finite yet infinite...

it is not what it actually is... it is what you perceive it to be...

the beauty in perception of life lies in the mind of the beholder... signal transmission to the brains: through vision, through audio/ears, through smell, through touch/sense, through memories, through 'de ja voos', through physical activity and through emotional stress/joy to name a few modes...

the possibilities are endless, and it indeed becomes so hard to visualize how infinite the definite things actually are... cookie-cutters is a term often used traditionally from the industrial revolution days, for referring to man-made mass-production initiatives... if we start asking the question, trying to reach how the things in space and time continuum originated, and the design of the whole cookie-cutter-idea behind this existence and life-form, it is quite overwhelming... how much information can a small amount of space inside one's head really hold? maybe it is often so under-estimated by quitters, and often over-estimated by day-dreamers... this inside information about the outside world, brings us to the ever-contraversial topic surrounding a three lettered word which people often use more to misrepresent and self-benefit and less to self-realize...

experiences are the key to everything, including the future which holds a hundred percent uncertainity index... at every point in time, we have a child's fascination coupled with an adult's ego within us... this ego keeps telling us that we are the most mature people in this world, while this child's fascination keeps us interested in the concept of continuing to perceive life and experiences... personalities develop in different ways among people, depending on which of these two characteristics dominate over the other... it is probably the most accurate statement to say that 'everything is relative' in this world... well, the previous statement, as idiosyncratic as it may have sounded, points us to the fact that if somebody thinks about an absolute truth in something, then it means that they have failed to understand the real meaning of things... they are trying to do what is called 'live-along play-along' thing that we, as humans in this period of time, keep doing day-in and day-out all the time...

perhaps, a process called self-reflection, at periodic moments in our lifetime (and as frequently as possible) would be one of the options available, for not only increasing the infinite possibilites of utilizing the limitless powers of our intellects but also helping us in repeating the same mistakes over and over and over again...
