comfortable middle class


This is a difficult essay to write and understand.

All of us ask these philosophical or religious questions: Why am I here? Where do I go when I die?

After 70 years of living, I have arrived at an unusual answer.

Simply said. I am here because of random events. When I die, I cease to exist. Some call it dust to dust.

Physical world and human existence are a combination of Random vs Order.

Let's start with how science defines existence. Our universe started with a Big Bang billions of years and has been expanding since.

There is no excepted scientific theory on the origin of the Big Bang.

My belief is the Big Bang was a random event.

At a large scale, our universe has order. Best example is Newton's law of universal gravitation.

At a small scale, quantum physics, there is a high degree of random behavior. It's call the Uncertainty Principal.

Human existence follows the same Random vs Order principal.

At a global scale, human behavior has an order. We divide ourselves into different countries, cultures, languages and religions.

However, at the individual level we live a highly random existence. Our birth depends on two people who were random individuals until they met.

We live in a random world and want an orderly existence. Members of the Comfortable Middle Class try to achieve financial order. This makes it easier to have emotional order and happiness.

I am lucky to be in Comfortable Middle Class and work hard at having an orderly life.

Life is Random.
