"When we carefully examine every instant of our personal existence we discover that we created it, agreed with it and willingly participated with others to cause it to continue to exist. Why? Boredom. Nothingness. Our individual and collective unwillingness to admit that we are actively creating everything that we perceive.
Yet, this simple recognition of our personal responsibility for the existence of this universe, and all universes and of our own eternal nothingness is the solution to the Mystery of the Ages. Every question provides its own reply: What is Mystery? The Mystery is that there is no mystery. We create mystery by choosing to Not Know and to Not Be the Eternal Nothingness of Our Selves.
Do you desire Immortality? Do you desire to break the cycle of birth, life, pain, death, rebirth and endless, unwinnable games in the physical universe? You must decide to Be Nothing. Be responsible for your own Boredom. Create Your Own Universe. Disagree with Agreement. Admire Your Self. Create and find Joy in your games, your dreams, your illusions. Can you hover over a mountaintop for ten thousand years? Can you pretend, like a child, that your best friend is a ghost? Can your best friend be You? The solution to Mortality is Being You: The Immortal Creator."

"An active imagination is the best defense against boredom." -- Lawrence R. Spencer
"If you discover that you’re all alone in space and that you’re actually enjoying your newly discovered peace, calm, quiet and serenity, there are a few thousand other things you can do to amuse yourself.
Most likely, your greatest problem will be boredom: the #1 enemy for a spirit. If you lived on Earth very long you will already know that people are obsessed with NOT being bored." -- Excerpt from 1001 THINGS TO DO WHILE YOU'RE DEAD by Lawrence R. Spencer
