You have a donut.

And you’re eating it.

But, are you considering where it even came from? Donuts don’t appear from thin air, as you know (unless you think they do, which I suppose I can’t exactly prove isn’t true).

That donut you’re eating had to be made by someone. Who made it? How old are they? What were they thinking when they made the donut? Were they thinking about how much you would enjoy this donut?

Of course, to make a donut, you need the ingredients to do so. Where did the grain come from? If your donut has sprinkles, where were those made? Maybe the grain was grown and harvested on a large family-owned farm. Maybe the sprinkles were mass-produced by machines in a factory off in some other country. Or maybe neither of these are true, but they sure did come from somewhere!

You can take each step back in time, and keep coming across these questions. So are we getting anywhere with it all? If every question’s answer is a question, how do we ever even begin to make sense of it? How can we understand the universe if we can’t even accurately describe where you got that donut from?

Well, you may now be questioning the meaning of your existence, and think, all just because of a donut! Well, worry not. You exist just as much as you think you do. After all, how could “nothing” worry about itself not existing? You are perfectly real.

I hope you enjoy your donut!
