      For some moments I get a feeling as if im a spectator viewing myself from a tv station inside my brain or something, and I feel like im on auto-pilot and almost as if Life is just a more realistic dream, or something.

      Life is a mystery, always will be, some questions will never be answered, unfortunately if all questions were answered, people would have nowhere to look anymore, without the 'unknown' people's drive and purpose seems, purposeless, we need questions with no answers to keep us going.

      Live in the moment but do think about your past and future, they are not in the present but are just as relevant as the now.

      That's how i feel sometimes, maybe there isn't an answer for everything but us, as humans cannot see that, and look too deep into things for an answer we will never know. Perhaps there is no answers, just questions.

      So basically, what we know as life, is simply the instant you're living right NOW, and when it's gone, it is just the memory of it...Kind of scary really, because you realize everything just goes away at some point or another. And whatever you don't remember, it's as you really never lived it.
      Well said. I think about this quite often. Presently, I've experienced something great. Though, reflecting upon it now, itís over; just exactly what you said, ďit's a memory.Ē So sometimes with this said, it makes me think what was the point of it. If we knew all along it was only temporary. I donít know, Iím starting to ramble

      I have thought about this frequently... I went to a Hedley concert recently, and I loved it so much, and I knew all the songs, and when it was over, right now, I feel like I want to go to a concert every night. It's over, I'll never get it back, and I can only look back on it with fond memories, and wait for the next one. The anticipation of the moment is long, the actual moment is very, very short, and looking back on the moment is for a lifetime.

      It has been calculated that the delay between phenomenon and its actual "experience" is 1/10,000th of a second. This is because of the inherent editing system called the ego/mind.

      The inherent ego/mind is analogous to a tape monitor/playback system. What is recorded and edited is played back in "real-time". So "experience" of phenomena is the result what is an automatic distortion. Without editing/distortion, the Brilliance of Reality stands revealed beyond all description.
