From the perspective of Kukuh a 24-year-old web designer from Denpasar

What are we here for?
To be part of an endless regeneration.

Do you believe in the Big Bang theory that the now circa-13.7-billion-year-old universe and all that’s in it was created by a massive explosion of enormously dense matter at what may have been the beginning of time?

No. I just don’t believe it. I don’t really care about the beginning of life. I think it’s more important to end life in a positive way.

If there is a God, where is this entity?
I don’t think the existence of God can be proven by what we can see, only by the way we feel. Just like love, we can’t see it, but we can feel it.

Is there a mystery to life?
Yes. Because we never know when we will be born or when we will die. Life is unpredictable.

Do you think we are alone in the universe?
I guess not. I suspect there are many others living things on other planets, but perhaps they aren’t the same as us.

There is a theory that there may be parallel universes with exact copies of us – doppelgangers – doing exactly the same thing as us right now. What do you think about that?
I don’t think so. I don’t believe it.

What do you think happens to people when they die?
There will be another life, but there are only two places to go: heaven or hell.

Where is your soul, and what is it?
My soul is like my breath. My soul is my life. If I had no soul, I would have no life.

Science says that all matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Therefore, will our energy, in the form of our soul, live on for infinity?
In my opinion, my soul and my energy are different things. However, I think souls do exist forever.

Do you know your place in the universe?
My place is on a very tiny planet called Earth, in a great universe.

Some people believe that because we are made of the same matter as the universe – carbon, and other elements, like nitrogen – anything we ask it will be attracted to us, popularized recently in the movie The Secret. What’s your view?
Yes. I believe that everyone and everything in this world are connected to each other.

Are we being observed?
Yes. Since I believe in God, I believe we are watched by Him.

If there is a God, why does he allow such colossal suffering of people on earth, either through war, disease or natural disasters?
Because He loves us and He wants us to learn about love. Love includes struggle and sacrifice.
