Topics of this ilk do not really belong in the Discovering Theravada forum, which is geared towards allowing newcomers to Buddhism (or newcomers to Theravada) to ask questions.
As it's not really intended for general musings of the type contained in your posting, please think more closely about which sub-forum you post your topics in.
In that context, consider also...A guide on how to get the most out of your new topicsviewtopic.php?f=8&t=8784
