This is my debut post. I've been observing for a while. Glad I found this place (with a pink floyd lyric and a search engine at that). Back to the topic, pompous as it may sound, it is, in a way, true. We all sit here thinking on higher things - and we amount for (what I'd estimate) a very, very small fraction of the population. So why do you feel it's important to think about our situation as humans, and sometimes - do you feel like it's possible to step outside the shell of being human and look at our existence objectively. To see ourselves for what we really are? Why do you do it? Why do you think the rest of our species doesn't seem to have interest? Personally, I've experienced the places my mind and imagination can take me to, and I want to get to the root of everything human. To meddle with the very fabric of our purpose.... Oh, and how many of you are Aquarians?
