The universe as it is and not as we want it to be in 10 images
I divide the world into real and not real. Particles, atoms, molecules, proteins, phenomena, all physical things are real; ideas, theories, inventions, concepts, are unreal in the sense that they are not physical, they exist thanks to the physical world. This last one istotally independent from the human world.Sure, we can have a brief, a very brief influence on it, a locally influence, of course, this we can, but, in the long run, the world will be always the old world.Life and harmony are a temporary phenomenon in our universe; the contingent, chaos and annihilation, instead, are its real stabilized nature.
And this is not all. The whole universe is a metaphysical concept, a concept that goes beyond the physical world. Its essence is not made of particles, atoms, substance, corporeity; it’s essence is made of nothingness of nothingness. This is what brought the world into the world. So, when we talk about the universe, we have to keep in mind that we are talking of something that goes beyond science, beyond physics, beyond ourselves.
In what follows, I am going to give you 10 brief pictures of the universe, and in these 10 brief pictures, I’ll try to describe it and our position in it as objectively as I can.
In the next post, I’ll start with the first image.
