To go to my last post, I’ve been racking my brain over what this “final frontier” thing really is. The answer I’ve come up with is quite ambiquous and most definitely not an exact one. I’ll leave that to you. We all make sense of our own lives and our own reality anyway. Why should this be any different?
Perhaps for me, this last and most absolute of all frontiers has taken an internal shape, which is played out in our limited and finite world. Albeit this place that I call home is ever-stretching and ever-developing. To phrase differently, the more I come to see and become exposed to, the more I come to accept that I will never see, discover, and know everything, or really anything for that matter. Shoot, I don’t even know myself half the time.
So, where does this leave me and where does this leave us?
Well, in a rather unnerving, but comforting place all the same. With the random discourse life takes, I think I can find comfort in being thankful for what I have. However, there remains a question which begs to be asked. Where I am going and what am I doing in this short glimpse of time I call life?
Don’t get me wrong, it is wonderful to learn how to make sense of this life and feel and experience my own senses. Tasting wonderful food, smelling flowers, seeing a sunset over mountain peaks are wonderful things, no doubt. But, what is it all for? And what is this elusive “final frontier”?
The fact of the matter is that there will always be new places I haven’t been to before, new cultures and ways of living with which I will not be familiar, food I will not have tasted, or music I haven’t heard. The list goes on for ages. You can try to make your own list. It is quite fun and incredibly freeing for me to realize that I just can’t do it all. Push on to your own frontier!
So there you have it. The mythical “final frontier” of ours appears to indeed be just that. A true figment of our culture and media that has inspired us to believe in an entertaining and romantic concept. Perhaps a method for us to spend money at the movies?
Well, this is all for now. Take care and thanks for reading!
Until next time. Cheers!
