It’s Wednesday, and that means we are linking up with Kathy from Vodka and Soda! Today, I’m going share with you some questions that roll around in my head from time to time.
- How were the pyramids built? It’s amazing what was accomplished before modern technically, just the pure engineering of the buildings are amazing, not to mention getting the raw materials and construction. I’ve always been fascinated by the ancient Egyptian culture. When I was little, I use to say I wanted to be an Egyptologist, that was until Indiana Jones ruined the whole appeal with snakes and spiders. I would love to be able to get a personal peek into that ancient time period.
- Is there life on other planets that resembles life here on Earth? I find it hard to wrap my brain around the fact that there are billions of galaxies in the universe, and not just billions but 100s of billions, with who knows how many planets in each. I am in awe of people who study and understand the physics…I’m not even smart enough to begin wrapping my mind around it. Honestly, I think the odds have to be in favor of other planets with intelligent life, there is no way out of the billions and billions of planets we are the only ones. If you click on the picture it will take you to the HubbleSite; giving you additional information on the picture and other cool pictures taken with the Hubble Telescope.
- What did happen to those dinosaurs? Was it climate change, meteor, virus? They roamed the whole earth and now they are just gone. Are there dinosaurs roaming around one of those billions of other planets out there? Thinking about Earth existing in a completely different state than we know it so fascinating. Could you imagine if we had pet dinosaurs or had to battle predators…how weird would that be!?!
- What happens when you die? I think this is a common one and I think even if you are firmly set about “where” you go…don’t you wonder about the logistics of it all? Do you know right away you are dead? Does it even matter; has all consciousness ceased to exist? There are just so many possibilities about how it all works and what happens! In The Brief History of the Dead, people basically move to a second life after death and they remain there until there is no memory of them left on Earth. Once anyone who has ever met them or was told a story about them ceases to exist they move on. I thought that was an interesting take on the after-life. I’m not set in one theory over the other, and I’m in no particular hurry to find out 🙂
Do these questions ever wonder through your mind?
