Here I will post my personal thoughts about a bit of everything. And you don´t need to agree!
I feel the post about GODS belongs here too.
This project will all be about the opposite to science. I know science have busy days telling us empirically, ”There is no higher ground”. Big Bang is a fact! Well the first chapters in the Bible are about the creation of Universe and Man. From a science point of view, I would say leave the debate walk-over! This is so easy to beat! Indeed Big Bang is a fact! Still and only as a parenthesis, the Genesis is in the beginning, pretty close to science. ”And there was light”.
The next 500000000 pages however, are about ethical rules. Do ”this” and you will be unhappy. Do ”that” and you´ll get to heaven. May be so, I´ll not take anything for granted. You have to remember evolution. The texts were written long ago. Still in its fundamental, I find many rules highly up to date. Kill someone and you´re fucked! Besides, I look upon the texts strictly metaphorically.
As I see it, GODS are needed – in whatever form – when Man is doubting her/his existence. Those negative thoughts could be life-long chains, preventing a person to live her/his short life fully.
Ok we got anti-depressive pills to adjust serotonin & nor-adrenalin. All good,because once you´re stuck in low land you might need help to once again rise. I have no hard times accepting such treatment.
But my conclusion is, what may cause this turn down is lack of hope.
Your life is in the grey routine? You may have financial problems? Or could it be a relationship meltdown? What about your career? Envy? Addictions? Loneliness…. and so on.
Could it be a relief to feel hope? Tormented enough, would you not do anything to achieve a real change?
Hope is so basic in all of us. It doesn´t matter if you are Black, White, Yellow, Red, Purple, Brown or just extremely colorless! We all need hope! If you are successful you may just go with the flow. BUT if you have hard times, you´ll need something to hold on to! In this very moment I feel there is a place for GODS.
I don´t think we have anything in science providing the ordinary man hope. I think science is more about gratitude. It appears like science been taking over the religious mantra about feeling gratitude.
Lets say we have a man suffering from a lethal decease. So a.t.m. where is the scientific hope? In a new medicine? Hmmm doubt it. But for every child being rescued from leukemia we all feel gratitude! But hope….?
In the end of the line, this is what I feel. Modern science have made it a bit ”neanderthal” to believe in higher spirit, a God or force beyond modern explanation.
I say, there is a place for both!
I´m a bit concerned about the music industry of today. It seems like the streaming is taking over more and more. Spotify and other companies are paying shit money to every composer joining their services. And joining you must, otherwise you don´t exist.
I feel I want to go in another direction. The music I produce is really not commercial in anyway, so why bother? Why can´t I use this platform to sell my music? Well of course I can ….and I will. But I´m a bit concerned.
I am also very grateful for everyone supporting my music. Every little download makes it possible for me to continue produce music in my way. So please if you like this idea, help me spread the word about this little haven of independent music. I highly appreciate any help.
