    Science says all matter is made of the same stuff. That energy is never created or destroyed, only transferred. We can't see the edge of space, and can't prove the origin of everything, and will not see the end of existence. We can imagine and even feel moments outside our time, but are eternally cursed to it's flow. In our minds anything is possible but in physical reality everything has limitations and boundaries. In all of endless space we can barely get off our world.. Our lives are filled with monotony and autonomy, only with spurts of conscious awareness between dreaming and day dreaming. Our entire existence is reminiscent of a video game with invisible walls keeping us in the level.

    All we know about the universe is our ideas. What we think iit is. What we think of it. We define it by what we think. The universe is just an idea we have, or a group of ideas. How tangible is it, that we can add nothing and take nothing from it in all time? How real is it, that it does not exist until our minds are connected?

    What if nothing is anything but an idea? Just a thought, not inside a program or a brain, and not floating through some aether. No god, no purpose, no justifiable creation or definable existence. A thought that wasn't and is and won't be, and we are part of that same thought? Not we at all but it, the only thing, a thought?
    1) I thought this forum was titled, "Paranormal," not "Philosophy."

    2) I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure you just described schizophrenia.

    Potential explanation of the paranormal... kinda like schizophrenia. 

    Also yes, clearly you are not an expert on schizophrenia, or the scientific theory that the universe is a simulation, which would allow for all manner of paranormal to exist outside of the normal laws of universal programming.

    Generally speaking discussion about thr paranormal is telling a story, talking about an experience, an attempt to disprove, or an attempt to explain.

    Not sure what you have against my attempt to explain.

    Nothing. I'm just skeptical of everything, and attempted to posit that with dry humor that was obviously misinterpreted.
