Re: Off-Topic Discussion thread

THE UNIVERSAL SCRIPT

Imagine, if you will, the complete saga of our existence; from the very first particle that collided with another, to the very last to extinguish. Imagine all of this written down in one enormous script, one with information that takes up more space than our universe can handle.

This particular script details everything anything has ever done. The Crusades is written down neatly in 30 paragraphs. The Nanking Massacre is tidied into a nice drama. The time when one of our astronauts in 3012 drank coffee and blinked twice; all jotted down in the script.

I like to call it: The Universal Script.

The script cannot be read, as does not have a solid structure. The script is simply being. It chronicles everything we have ever done, and there is nothing to change it.

If someone were to attempt to defile the script, they would fail, as the script has already planned the person's destiny...which was to defile the script.

One can say the script bears the fate of our future. It indeed does, as it is already finished. Everything that will happen is written on the script, and it cannot be modified.

The script is not a piece of paper, nor is it any state of matter. It exists purely in our minds, although it is not our imagination.

The script stretches eons and contains every event, notable or not, and every person, notable or not. You and I are in the script, and we are following it right now, even though we've never read it. Everyone is an actor.

The script is what the Universe follows. Some can say the script destroys the very idea of "free will", as we do not plan any of our actions; we are simple following the script.

Yet this raises more questions: What is the script's main climax? Who is the protagonist? Who is the antagonist?

I would imagine nobody. The Universal Script would contain focus on over billions of people, so there's no "focus" on any single person.

Even though there is no "main character" of sorts, there must be someone that had a greater focus.

If the Universal Script covers details as intricate as the collision of particles, surely it wouldn't be bound by structures which focus on specific characters? If it covers everything, there is no such thing as focus. Nothing is missed out. Every detail that could possibly be written has been written. You cannot add details if they haven't happened, and you cannot remove details either.

Albeit the fact the universal script covers everything, if there were to be someone of significant value (i.e. hitler, pol pot), it would cover quite a dense section in the script. My question is, who is the most significant person throughout the history of humankind? Wouldn't this person be a "focus"?

If I were to compare a child who died in the womb and a 101 year old great-grandmother, who would take up more space in the script? I'm talking about length and what the person has contributed to society.

In that case, I guess it would be the person who does the most and wastes little time. Everyone breathes and blinks and all that so we don't need to consider that when we're talking about people relatively. So the minimum you could have to write about is if you were simply existing and not doing anything besides blinking etc. If you were doing something, you would be doing that thing as well as blinking, so you take up more space in the script at that point. Over your lifetime, you will accumulate a section of the script based on how much you have done. It will probably be the person who has lived the longest that will have the biggest section.

If you wanted to make it complicated, then you could also consider compression - i.e. if I do the same thing 5 times in a row, the script might just say "thing x5" rather than "thing thing thing thing thing". So doing things repetitively might shorten your section.

An overall antagonist could be entropy, if you want . if this is the story of all existence. then the force trying to bring that to an end would be the antagonist. existence itself the protagonist.

or visa versa, imagine then story of entropy as it try to bring existence to an end. the end of the story being the final star dying. leaving the universe a vast empty void.


you could also imagine it as series of arcs.  to be chunked up in all sorts of ways. individual parts could have story's, climaxes, protagonist and antagonists.

this reminds me so much of the sandman.

this is destiny's book after all.

Re: Off-Topic Discussion thread

I found a cool youtube channel called The School of Life. They have a huge library of videos on relationships, psychology, sociology, philosophy, politics and more. I find it very interesting, though it's important to keep in mind that the videos about philosophy and politics will often try to simplify it and teach you only the key points of it. It will take more than a ten minute video to thoroughly understand most of the topics.

welcome to the club. Does that mean you just got 200% wiser, like I did at the time?

or does it just mean that existence hurts?
