My Theory on Life... What do you think?

My Theory on Life This is just something I thought of, it's not a fact. I think humans were all born with the same given number of heart beats, right? So... each person starts with the same number of heart beats in their "life-bank." As you go through life you have choices. You can choose to smoke or not to smoke, do do drugs or not to. Since smoking is a stimulant, it increased the number of heart beats you have in a shorter period of time, therefore you utilize more than non-smokers. Are you with me now? Ok... think about this... However, some people don't have a much of a choice on how they want to use their heart beats. Take dwarfs for example. It's a fact that they live shorter lives, their bodies are smaller compared to the standard average human so everything they do takes more excertion than if they were of average size. I think that if people just lived in a more harmonic way, relaxed... etc... then they actual will live longer because they will be able to disburse their heart beats over a longer period of time. Get it? The only argument I can come up with would be exercise. Exercise increased heart beats too, but it's healthy. All of this goes hand in hand with what you are doing to yourself as you use your heart beats. So what do you think about that?

That is a great theory, very well thought out. Thought the exercise part does toss a kink in the idea. My husband once came up with the theory that we are all here to convert energy. We have a quota as to how much bad energy we have to turn into good energy. This is why bad things happen to good people, so they can convert the bad energy into good. And once you have converted your quota you are allowed to die and go on to the afterlife. I know he explained it better, but this is the general idea.

Your theory in life...amazing..but, what you have concluded here? do you wish that non smokers wshould start smoking for incraesing their heart beats....! things are totally confusing here ....If we both pick up point by point here, this discussion will surely become logic...don't you think so?

You misunderstood his point. He is not telling that increased heart beats will help you. Increased heart beats only lessen the number of heart beats in your bank. His theory is every person borns with some specific number of heart beats. It is up to us, how to use them. If we use them scarely you can save them and live long.

well im a bit agree with you and i respect your own theory.. now hres my theory: its a bit dark and far from your theory. its more like a realization. for me life is all about surviving...why cause the day i was born was also the day i started to die.. and why again.... cause living in this planet for 23 years makes me realize that to be able to survive.. you have to unfair and be treated unfair for them to be fair...its like life will ether makes you hahaha:) or huhuhuT_T... guess you know what i mean. for me thats the reality of life and others may consider as my theory... so with that perception and how i conceptualize the reality i end up with this "if this is life and this is how it should be...it could only mean surviving means dying... "

I'm sorry, it's very difficult to understand your theory. I read twice, but in vain.

i dont care, maybe if you try to think harder. its just easy as 123.. meaning you life will either make you laugh or cry because unfairness is the reality whether you are the unfair one or you are the one whose been treated unfair.. if you still dont understand... then jsut dont bother.. maybe you ahve your theory.

I don't totally agree with your theory. If we don't pump/excercise our heart occasionally just like an engine of a bike or a car has to be warmed up before any long run or a race.. Then the heart would not be able to perform well in order to give us the required or given number of heart beats according to you.

This may be a generalization of a stres free life, stress kills, in a way yes you are right mor heart beats the more you "spend" but yes excercise does throw a wrench in, i believer that some of the "bad" we do ourselves in re-versable, not all just some, part of this can be seen as a "harmony" especially with our surrounding s and in our lives... the harmony that i believe gives us the most and helps us personally the most is inner harmony, learn to be less stress ful, learn to actually enjoy life, although you may make just enough money to survive, whtat does it matter in the long run? you come from nothing you go back to nothing so what do you lose? well thats how Monty python took it and hey stop worrying and working so damn hard when it all gets trashed later in your life later or at the end of it...what matters is the person their mind and their soul..snt enjoying sometihng better than missing it for work? im not saying quite you job and be a vagrant no, im jst sayign mybe that supper hi-stress job actually isnt worth it nomatter what the pay

Based on your topic, you would also believe that if you were "good" you would live longer. Sorry but I have to disagree. A woman of over 100 was on the news a while ago smoking a pipe. Then there are illnesses of which a person has no control. What happens with their allotment of heartbeats?

I don't know that's a good point. I'd have to think about that one. :)

It is not a question of speed or slow beating of hearts of people that lives' longitivity is coupled with. But also how sympathy the beats of hearts carry. A healthy heart with stable beats per minute as standardised with one's age is much essential for long life if other hyeginic parameters are well and good, including mental sanity and freedom from worldly stresses. Thanks.

Yeah! I agree with you, not only heart beats but also other aspects like mental sanity and freedom from stresses have their own impact on man's longvity.

You siad right. We all have the day we return to where we were born--the dust. Life is just like a journey, there always have the destination. When you reach here, the journey is over. Fortunately, sometimes we can dicide how long the journey is and where we want to go. Therefore, taking care of your body, and keepping your diet balance, I believe you got long journey to go and enjoy yourself with the beautiful view.

Mine is the "Plastic Theory."Plastic is superficial and artificial. Humans, even if they don't want to, should adapt to their environment and to other people, in order to survive. This is associated with the theory saying that "MAN IS A SOCIAL ANIMAL." Even if you don't feel good toward a particular person, you have to treat him nice because there will come a time that you will be needing his help, which is natural becauce NO MAN IS AN ISLAND. Therefore, the PLASTIC THEORY states that HUMANS HAVE THE TENDENCY TO BE SUPERFICIAL AND ARTIFICIAL IN ORDER TO SURVIVE AND LIVE.

Interesting notion... but it doesn't keep into consideration those who die shortly after birth, or those who are murdered, etc. But, I will say, that it's pretty much a fact that if lived in harmony with ourselves, each other, and our environment that we'd live much longer. Some would go as far as to say, forever.
