Who Define the Milestones?

Posted by ChampDog | Saturday, May 15, 2010

As per discussed in my previous post that we are in progress to infinite milestones but one question that we have in mind is that "Who Define the Milestones?"


Two questions that most people have in mind are: Is it God? or Is it ourselves? You may think that a free thinker's answer will usually to be themselves and religion person's answer will usually is God. Unfortunately both are not really the answer. The answer is:


The "SYSTEM" defines the milestones.


Yes, the answer is the system. However, there are 2 very important concept here:
  • If you're WITHIN the system, the milestones are defined by the system. 
  • If you're OUTSIDE of the system, the milestones within the system are defined by you. However, the milestones outside of the system are defined by another system. 

You get it right that we're in fact live in a nested system and this nested system is infinite which also explains why the milestones are infinite too. Again, the basic fundamental is similar to how our universe works which is there is no ending and no beginning. So now the next question is: What is the SYSTEM? Is system here refer to the UNIVERSE?

    I can't get this into my system yet.

    why must the system define the milestone if you are within the system ?

    Because you don't have a control over it.

    The system controls it is because we're looking at the perspective within a system. This could be someone, or something outside of the system controls but when we're within, what we see it as "this is how the systems works".

    In our world, we can call this as "natural". This is what I really mean by the system defines the milestones when we're within the system. Hope that's clear. :)

    not convincing ... my body is within me but i dun really decide when my heart stop.

    all things on earth is within planet earth but earth can really do not much if human want to destroy it.

    So it is back to the perspective thing. Different perspective looking at the same thing has a different answer.

    We have a choice but the choice that we have may not be a choice if you're looking from another perspective.

    that is why i said you didn't establish a common ground to conduct a fruitful mind exchange. simply brought up the perspective issue when you cann't answer what you have brought up yourself is a way of escaping answering a valid question within your own system. read again your own 'what is the point of answering question' should answer that but i know it won't to your own "perspective".

    The purpose of answering question is still the same which is to help myself to get to the answers that I don't know.

    This is what I"m trying to do and at the same time to have sharing and discussion with you which I find that is great.
