    my opinion since i tripped is that our mind might be as dense a blackhole binfinite denseour mind it is the beginning of the universe we once were one one thing then its got complicated so complicated everything else we think we know forme thats my infinite short explaination why i see no start or end not definied by any point and but by distortions its one thing everything is one connected to each other but now found really far far apart so far apart we dont even understand us and the connections in every possible way anymore now the big bang or what ever caused this totally suits cuz why is this all but to see the truth is fkin mindblowing not mindblowing but mindclearingwe or i cant communicate this unfortuately and this is also not the purpose just to understand urself and the real " reality " to focus infinite to the inside not to the outside thats the only way to understand u can only see it for yourself
