Consciousness is the real Enemy

Consciousness is the real enemy. Animals are suffering too, but they are not aware of it. Also, they will never complain about the futility of their lifes, because they don't know that their life is pointless. If an individual isn't aware of its own mortality and futility, it can not suffer from that knowledge. Of course the physical pains of life will also exist without consciousness. But they are accepted, without questioning it, by an unaware individual. Furthermore, animals are living solely in the present moment (at least to a large extent), so fear of future pain and actual memory of past pain are also not bothering them.

Conclusion: No consciousness = no awareness of futility/pain = no problem.

Existence is an illusion

Existence is an illusion. Everything we think, say or do is futile, and at some point we are going to die anyway. Since time is relative and subjective, it doesn't even matter if we are alive now or 1.000 years in the past or the future. "The present" will always be "the present" - OUR present will be the past just like the 1.000-years-in-the-past-present IS the past now, and the 1.000-years-in-the-future-present WILL BE the past.

If you think about this, our whole existence is unreal. YESTERDAY is already ERASED and TODAY will be erased TOMORROW.

Every second vanishes into oblivion.

The Veda knew it thousands of years ago: We live in a dream. I would add: We live in a nightmare...
