Somehow physics class always triggers my mind to follow strange hypothesises and ideas. It’s not the laws of physics that have claimed my head as you might think since I’m stationed in a physics classroom, but there are more ethical and philosophical paths that are occupying my mind.
Somehow thoughts like how the human mind came into being and other strange questions always surfaces during those classes. I always tell myself to remember to plot it all down when I get home. But as soon as I get out of the dark classroom, my mind automatically shakes off such serious thoughts away and leave me chipper and carefree to face the world as enthustiatic as I always do. I guess that’s just how my personality works.
I often catch myself thinking about how the human will and mind is something.. undiscovered. Physics can’t explain to me how it works, it can’t give the logical part of me the answers that it seeks. All the talk about the universe and all its planets and stars and how we can calculate us to one answer after another one, makes me wonder if we’re just another ignorant specie of lifeform that isn’t aware of some more superior lifeform, like ants are to us. What if we’re just like ants, buzzling on and forth worrying about daily life while thinking that we are superior without being aware of other lifeforms? Sure, we have yet to find another living specie that will want to feed on us, but we might just be that unimportant that we’re not being bothered with. What if that’s the case to why we’ve been left alone.. for now? We might think that ants don’t have the intelligence and mind that humans possess, but what we possess might be nothing compared to what another lifeform possess. We might just be like insects. Unaware of the fact that we’re actually under control, while believing something completely different.
I think about life. The human mind and the human will. About the unknown and undiscovered.
Things that physics cannot tell me.
Isn’t it a bit weird of me to ponder over matters like these during physics class?
While I should be using my left brain half in this class to its fullest potential, I find myself
keeping my right half in production instead. Why is that I wonder?
