It has been such a long time since I've visited here. I thought I'd post something I found within a Reddit post. Some 'bizarre' theories some are convinced of, and hold quite tightly (no matter how silly).
And my favourite...
I believe that consciousness is sort of like a radio signal that you are able to "tune in to" the more complex your brain is. Animals and the like tune in on the most basic level, interacting with, and reacting to, their environment, and humans tune in a little more completely, leading to philosophy, science, etc, and that Nirvana actually exists and is a state of complete harmony with the universe, and is possible for all living beings to reach.
