Deep thought provoking questions have always been prevalent throughout my entire life. It has been both a blessing and a curse. Why? ™ I mean, is ignorance bliss or is ignorance just ignorance? Whoops, there I go again asking deep thought provoking questions. Before I get into a list of deep thought provoking questions that are covered in two fantasy books called Dream Seeker: The Velvet Mask and Dream Seeker: Return of Joshua, let me just give you some background.
Concepts and beliefs must pass the “smell test” with me, and I do not believe in one source of knowledge. So, throughout my spiritual journeys in life, I have come across many different belief systems, theories, philosophies, and methods. I try most of them out, and discard some that are no longer practical. Deep thought provoking questions have always been my guide. Perhaps my personality was already formed during conception. Perhaps it was because I didn’t trust people as a kid. As you can see deep thought provoking questions are all over the place with me.
Deep thought provoking questions cause me to digress; I guess that’s why I have thousands of blog posts and articles all over the Internet. Believe it or not, I am not that much of a snob- just because I like to talk about deep thought provoking questions doesn’t make me intelligent or wise. Who knows? Maybe talking about deep thought provoking questions is just a product of my setting and era (21st century United States of America). Would I ask many deep thought provoking questions if I was a Neanderthal woman thousands of years ago? Would I be obsessed with deep thought provoking questions if I was born in 1765 in one of the King’s colonies in the New World?
Let’s get to Dream Seeker: The Velvet Mask. Here are some deep thought provoking questions in that novel:
- Do dreams have meaning?
- Why do we dream?
- Are there beings or things that exist which we cannot experience with out senses?
- What is the affect of time on our human perceptions?
- Is energy immortal?
- Why are nihilists so passionate about denying belief in God?
Return of Joshua
has deep thought provoking questions such as:
- How would society react if Jesus returned?
- Does the world need a savior?
- Are good and evil concepts?
- What is morality?
- Does the MEDIA overstep its bounds when it comes to reporting information?
A former classmate of mine once e-mailed me that feelings are merely chemical reactions and don’t really “exist”. Indeed it is a struggle for humans to overcome the wave of emotions and focus on logic. However, I believe that by labeling the human experience with numbers chemistry dehumanizes us. As you can see there is no end to deep thought provoking questions and I went on a tangent again.
If deep thought provoking questions are your thing, check out the Dream Seeker series. It is loaded with deep thought provoking questions (and answers) on politics, psychology, sociology, and much more.
