Humans Being Here and Not Talking About It

I find it interesting the way we are as humans, specifically how none of us really knows why we're here, how we came to be here, where we're going, and all that's in between.

I do not mean to offend those of you who know absolutely that you are a human being on Earth with an absolute purpose, and a desire to make it happen, and a knowing deep in your soul of where you are going after being here on Earth. Heck, if that's the case then I don't think it would even be possible for me to offend you. Congratulations to you...I think?

I am most definitely not certain of humanhood. Nor do I think the people who 'know' are always certain about things either. Everyone must waver in their understanding of life from time to time. It only makes sense.

I'm curious enough to take a survey of every person I know, and ask them "why do you think we're here?" Although, many responses would be the same (due to belief systems shaped by culture, religion, and education). Some people might have had an out-of-body experience, or near-death. That would be interesting. Although, I don't necessarily think the 'near-death people' have a better understanding of life than anyone else; it's just a different understanding. I guess my survey would be rather pointless, come to think of it.

I find it humorous that more people don't talk about being here, as humans, or why we are here. I suppose it's because none of us knows, but that sort of seems like an excuse- a way out of the conversation...Avoidance of contemplation of anything further than what we've already contemplated.

Does it hurt to think about, or to talk about? Maybe it's too potentially offensive for people to talk about in today's world. We don't want to start any wars over religion- already been done. We are far too cool for that now.

So what now? We just ignore the weirdness that we're these strange physical bodies (or we're in them) with emotions and thoughts. We just brush the whole thing under the rug, and keep our thoughts to ourselves on the matter of humans and existence.

Maybe thinking about it doesn't help any. Maybe talking about it makes things worse. All I know for sure is that often I wonder why things are the way they are...And I probably will keep doing it.
