here to learn

Humans have evolved and have been able to change the face of earth. The three worded question of Who am I seems to be the hardest for us. So time has come for me to ponder who am I? One of these days, I have been asking myself the existential question : Who am I ? Why am I here? What is my purpose? I know how I am here. Strange isn’t it? It is amazing to think that the body that I call mine was probably billions kilo meters aways from where I currently exist. Yet everything came together to form me; to form this biological machine that can type these thoughts, can write a program to solve problems, enjoy a nice meal or seek gratification.

When I was a child we had to read a poem called ‘Who am I?‘ and back in those days I used to think what a silly question it was. I knew who I was. It was really easy back then because I had a very simplistic world view.Now my environment and my world has changed 180 degrees as I am grown up and these questions bothers me once in a while. I did not know much about how a small amount of chemical released in my blood can change who I might be next moment. Or is free will really free? One example is we are so driven by our instinct and the chemical changes in our body due to food we eat, the environment we live in and the millions years of evolution that we are what we eat and we are the product of our environment.

In my personal opinion we are here purposelessly. An accident. A biological machine that is complex and has conscience. Some are born with lack of proper chemical combination and they become murders, they become violent , becomes serial killer and terrorist. Those malformed machines.

Now to the purpose. We are here to learn. To explore and live and struggle everyday. We are here to pass our gene to next generation. This is our instinct. As humans machine. We are so intelligent that we created the concept of God and Evil. We invented technologies. We are programmed to be learner and explorer so that we will not be living a boring life. To seek new knowledge is what we are programmed to. People do not realise but every organism is here to learn. The evolution is doing it’s best to so that we learn and be better.

If we think from machine perspective, think about all the constraints involved in picking a glass of water from one table and placing it in another table.

monster named Kim Jong-il and North Korea

Kim Jong-il like, all the politicians, was a monster in the human form. The pain and hardship that people in North Korea have got due to the absolute power is just like a curse for them and for humanity. As I was looking at funeral of Kim Jong -il, I was thinking why is there this big drama even at his death. Kim made Korea a drama land. He played his drama leading the country into poverty, hunger . starvation and always lived with cult. His life and death became a cult. And when people will get free the chain someday they will throw every little piece of his picture into fire and break every little status of him. Communism has such a very bad face. Why are even there communist any more in this world after seeing the fate of North Korea. While South Koreans enjoy the blissful prosperous life, North Koreans are centuries back. I feel so pity for people in North Korea. The nature of power is so nasty. Power makes people go crazy. Kim is an example . I sometime wonder why does he had to make life of those people so hard when the fact is he is not taking that power with him in his death bed.

North Koreans are compelled to become actors of a play. All the situations are choreographed. Kim has created a chaos and I can not even imagine what might have been going through people in North Korea. Someday all these storm will be gone and I am praying for all the people in North Korea that someday the chains will be broken and they can fly. They are under the most brutal rule imaginable but these monster can not be their forever. Like Kim died, the rule will be dead one day and all the propaganda will end and North Korea will wake up. I believe my pray will come true. Its midnight here. I am young and with hope. I am consistent at my belief that after many years I will be writing a post that will say NORTH KOREA is free from those evils as did Libya. The madness of these communist leader should not decide fate of 22 millions North Koreans. Let North Koreans get strength to fight against the devil. Let freedom come to their country. My best wishes for the new year to all the North Korean.
