Cute...but, just to clarify if I say 'high' I always mean high on God or realizations or clarity...
endorphins flowing and the mind expanding...say, after and during meditation or stillness sitting in silence....walking in the woods..
Never stoned on MMJ..which I can say bec it is legal in CO.

I do not think the reason, the why of creation is unanswerable at all!
But, it is experiential...not some intellectual answer...not knocking the intellect....
after all, it is a gift, also...it is just limited, can only take us so far.
While an experience goes WAY beyond even the typical 21st c logic of many men.

For many centuries, science, reason, logic, and the study of consciousness/experience were all the same. I think we all lost a good thing when consciousness and science/reason/logic got a divorce from each other.

However, the reason behind that divorce had a lot to do with the dirty deeds of government imposed religion (a topic worthy of its own thread).
