If a tree falls in the forest
If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does there a sound?
For most of my life, I thought that was a stupid question. Of course there is a sound.

I didn't realize the depth of that question.
My answer now is, "No, it does not make a sound". Without perception, the universe does not exists.
Thought, as it turns out, is reality. Dimensions exist within thoughts and without thought, nothing matters.
There was no time before the big bang. There was no space. I can see it now. There was nothing.

I think it was a thought that created this universe.
And when we die, our universe will cease to exist.
In a very real sense, this universe exists because we are here.
And it just may be, if you wish there is a heaven to go to when you die, that is where you will go, and that may be another illusion.
I'd like to hang around. To discover the universe is to discover the dreams of the creator.
Perhaps God did create you in his own image. Perhaps you are here to discover the beauty this creation.

I got this from a dream.
In my dream, the spirit of death wasn't a separate entity.
Now that I think about it, I realize it was me.
When he told me to come, I told him no. I told him I'd like to stay here.
This creation is my heaven, complete with beauty, magnificense, awe, happiness, sorry, horror and delight.
Ane even in an eternity wouldn't be enough time to understand all that there is out there.
