Philosophy – “Why Bliss is not an Emotion – Debunking the Utopia” – 5/17/2021

“Escapism is the retreat from truth.”

– Modern Romanticism

To run towards where one can be blissful, will be far from what hurts. Though, what hurts, is truthful. And, what we avoid, are always among the most powerful of emotions. Complexities, that we do not wish to conquer.

In the bliss for how Heaven can be imagined, by mortal humans physically alive, there is deception. A progressive mindset, towards Utopian or a non-problematic world, will bring about the greatest of lies. That is because life is full of either truth or lies. Truth, when we wish to face what life will bring us. Lies, when we wish to escape the pain that come with truth and life.

A Utopia does not exist, because we cannot be alive in such a world.

We cannot feel alive, even with a literal, beating heart. No one is alive, when we cannot be truthful towards ourselves nor to others. We are death, because we do not question what occurs, as bliss becomes our motto.

As deception is life’s greatest comfort, we will find an attraction towards it. We will begin to treat life as horrid, and everything horrid or hideous as beautiful. This is same to believe we should avoid all truth, while embracing what has been lied to or what is a rawness in deception.

Though, bliss, when pertaining itself to escapism, cannot be an emotion when it does have its relation to ignorance. That is because to be ignorant is to never learn, when a Utopia would define itself as a non-problematic world. What would be to learn, within such a world full of bliss, when we can no longer make mistakes? If to learn is to live, as we live in order to learn, then it is our emotions where we, as humans, are imperfect. Being imperfect, or having emotions, causes to be both errored and commit errors. However, we are meant to learn from those mistakes. Since that is the case, then ignorance would pertain to bliss when we have nothing to learn from our mistakes, resulted from our emotions.

Bliss is not an emotion, because ignorance is bliss. Ignorance is bliss, because a mistake cannot be made in a world without faults. This would be a world of deception, thus one without truth, and then being identified as one without the need to learn from errors and consequences.

If we choose bliss over our emotions, then we are favoring ignorance over truth. We prefer to be lied to, because as bliss is a comfort, then so is deception.
