The Origin of Self is Self

The 'origin of life' question is an abstraction. What is life after all? Is it matter? So then, what gave birth to matter? Is it not love? Is it not self? Of course it is. Why? The self is love itself. The origin of self is self. We are simply self-experiencing ourselves. The answer to the question as to 'why' is simple: to love and be loved, warmth, togetherness. It is very simple really... Love experiences itself; this itself is us, Love, for we are. Life is just another word for love.
