Someone asked me this simply complicated question. Can you imagine when you were not? I had my idea's about the question but then they explained to me what they meant by it, but I want to know how you guys would take this question and what you would make of it.
You can't imagine when you were not for you are. Everything that is, IS. You cannot imagine what it isn't like to not be. We can fancy what it might be like, but we really can't even grasp it. For us not to be we wouldn't have conciessness to decieffer anything, we just wouldn't be. As I stated, for us that are it's practicly an impossable thing to do.
I guess it would go back to before you existed, although I guess if you looked at it in another way it would be before everything existed? like because you came from your parents, and they came fromt theirs, and it goes back to the beginning before anything existed? like nothingness? (I don't know, I'm not very good at abstract thinking)
Whichever advisor put this in general knoledge would you please move it back, it has religious significance which is why I put it in religion and spirituality.
In the most blunt way, yes, duh, it was only 14 years ago, but in another way, I think I can, sort of, but it makes my brain hurt if I think about in too much.
In an abstract sense, I can certainly imagine my own nonexistence, but I can't imagine what it would be 'like' not to exist, as it is 'like' nothing.
I dont get it
