My name is O'Neil and I'm from Portland Oregon USA. I have purposely chosen not to label my belief/idea system as I find it extremely restrictive in my mental evolution. What I mean to say is that as soon as you label yourself, whether you proclaim yourself an atheist, theist, christian, or anything as it were, you begin to restrict your ability to perceive and understand things that go against what you have said yourself to believe. I am not saying that I believe in nothing nor am I saying that I believe in anything, for both is actually true and false at the same time.
Here is an example where the idea of believing in nothing and believing in everything, both at the same time is beneficial... It is a common idea, many believe it to be factual (but can we, with our physically limited perceptive capabilities, actually know if something is truly factual?), that existence (time, space, or anything you can think of and beyond) is infinite. And, since existence is infinite, anything that can exist has, does, and will exist as well as has, does, and will happen and keep happening an infinite number of times. Furthermore since the space/time-line, I think I just made that up, is infinite everything whether conceivable or not does exist all at the same time and at different times as well. So, with the flexible idea of believing in everything and nothing, you are able to believe in the possibility of everything existing including the possibility of the existence of deity's and the possibility of the lack of existence of deity's.
I am not the best at putting my thoughts into words, so if anyone has any further ideas about what I have said then please speak up so we can converse on these ideas, or of someone can point me to the correct place in the forums where similar ideas have been brought up I would appreciate it.
Another thing I hope to accomplish here is finding out why, apart from the instinctual need for the feeling of belonging, people label themselves.
I would be extremely grateful to anyone who directly responds to this greeting...
