Almost a poem

Our point of view is subjective.

The point of view of science is the point of view of science.
The point of view of the stars is the point of view of the stars.
The point of view of the universe is the point of view of the universe.
The point of view of your genes is the point of view of your genes.
From sciences point of view, you are ‘only’ an organism, a physical system, or whatever.
From the point of view of the stars, you are ‘only’ a little dust grain.
From the point of view of the universe, you are nothing.
From the point of view of your genes, you are nothing but a messenger to carry them on.
From your own point of view, most of the universe does not matter.
Your own point of view is what counts for you.
Nothing is forcing you to assume the point of view of science.
What the stars mean to you is what they mean to you and no science can tell you that is wrong, because your own point of view is the primary one for you.
The love you feel is not only a chemical process in your brain. Even if we knew how those chemicals manage to cause it, that does not change its meaning for you because your subjective point of view is the primary one for you.
You decide what is the meaning of it all. You create that meaning. You define your point of view yourself, it does not come from the outside, unless you decide so.
From an outside, “objective” point of view, life is meaningless, but you are not standing on such an objective point of view, unless you want to.

  2. We are by necessity the centre of our own Universe and as such are able to help each other to see around the corners hidden to our own view. Our understanding of what we then see will of course depend upon the breadth of our individual perspective. Thanks for leading me to this piece of writing.
