what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
jc. god for me is like the result of a big bang: something mostly scientific……i see the poetic nature associated with the concept, rather than the image of an old man with a beard.
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
jc. the word god? i find it hard to imagine how the word could actually be controversial. no its not controversial for me, i think it is the different religions that create the controversy between themselves. … for me personally it’s not a controversial concept.
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
jc. yes of course, when i hear the word god i think of the emotions we feel when we walk into a church, i think of wind and a higher presence..
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
jc. neither one nor the other, i do not believe there is a reason for our existence, i believe we are more so the fruits of hazard, and i do not believe that we are at the centre of something – i believe we turn around something, but we are not the centre…there is not necessarily a reason.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
jc. …i think that it is something rare, and i think that love…love is two people that become better because they are together.
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
jc. i think that love is in everything, but i think that maybe for plants for example it holds the form of pleasure, or happiness ….there is definitely something like love that all beings share.
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
jc. i think that it takes honesty and work on the relationship, and after magic makes up the rest.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
jc. what i know now that i didn’t know before…..i know that one needs to always be observing what is around you, and to judge less, a lot less, and be able to put yourself in the others shoes, and be able to say ‘ if i was in their place i would probably do the same as them’ so simply try and understand others.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
jc. i envision something like a pool, continuously moving, and people diving inside, who move around strangely and freely, leaving the pool as they die…a succession of movement.
