Nihilism VS Existentialism. Creation Ex Nihilo VS Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit. Does Nothing Come from Nothing Or Something ?

Nihlism

Neither being (sat) nor non-being was as yet. What was concealed? And where? And in whose protection? Who really knows? Who can declare it? Whence was it born, and whence came this creation? The devas were born later than this world’s creation, so who knows from where it came into existence? None can know from where creation has arisen, and whether he has or has not produced it. He who surveys it in the highest heavens, he alone knows-or perhaps does not know. -Rig veda

Recently I wished one of my cousins happy birthday. My cousin thanked me and asked me a question.

I am not sure why we celebrate ageing; maybe it is getting wiser (to be proven) that we assume happens with age? I thought about it and gave him this response.

We are born mortal and one day we reach our destination an euphemism for bidding good bye to life on earth now if you are having hell of a great time on the planet earth I am not surprised by your question but if you look it at from a fatalistic point of view and see the journey as a mundane worthless exercise adding no extra dimension to the souls quintessential exist stance it’s just like feeling a sense of getting closer when you crossed the extra mile.

My Cousin replied it was a great perspective! I acknowledged my nihilistic response and wished him a hale and hearty life. Nihilistic response? Since I replied Life was not worth its purpose and on a larger scale there is no meaning to life in general. Now that’s Nihilism for starters.

To be more precise Nihilism is a philosophical doctrine that suggests the lack of belief in one or more reputedly meaningful aspects of life. Most commonly, nihilism is presented in the form of existential nihilism, which argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value. But is life really of no intrinsic value ? Well all philosophers don’t seem to think alike there are an another group of thinkers branded as Existentialists who believe that The actual life of the individuals is what constitutes what could be called their “true essence” instead of there being an arbitrarily attributed essence others use to define them. Thus, human beings, through their own consciousness, create their own values and determine a meaning to their life.

Newspapers and Magazines are in the content business and on a daily basis editors face immense pressure to fill the space in all the columns of their newspapers. They are in the hunt for all sorts of news also of the offbeat kind. Many a time I saw some good chunk of space allocated to stories titled real life doppelganger where celebrities are paired with their look alike aka doppelganger more having a German etymology Doppel ( double) ganger(walker). The news surely of some curiosity value and very low intellectual value. Of late I also read some articles on doppelganger effect where like a real life hologram a body double of a person makes a presence in two locations at the same time and making it more spooky some people came face to face with their own doppelgangers raising the curiosity quotient of the doppelganger effect.

For the spiritually advanced and well versed with the concepts of Astral Plane and Astral Projection the phenomenon of the Doppelganger effect is within the grasp of their spiritual knowledge. Myself a beginner in the discipline of spirituality had read one of the most recommended book by the New Age Movement Autobiography of a Yogi and followed it up with Meher Baba’s God Speaks. These two books do a great job in expanding the horizons of readers especially of the low spiritual quotient kind. The Human body is explained as a three layer vehicle and the layers explained as Physical, Astral and the Casual bodies. The realization of God head is seen as transcending seven planes of existence. The mutual relationship of thee bodies to each other and the Soul is very clearly explained and forms the core tenets in both of these books. There are variants of the three layered body expanding to the five layered body and the seven layered body. Keeping it simple and focusing on the three layered body.
