One thing I forgot to mention, which is the reason I don't want to pursue this topic:

The concept itself is so alien to common thought that there exist no words devoted to expression of the ideas I am trying to communicate

Ludwig Wittgenstein, in my opinion the greatest philosopher of the modern era, ended his Tractatus with this unbelievably wise sentence:

"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent"

That has been the guiding light of my thinking ever since I read it. Few experiences can be more exhilarating than cleaning your mind of all the garbage you accumulate through life. "If you can't talk about it, you can't think about it, therefore don't". That's my motto.
