But why?
    why do we think differently than everyone else around us?
    why is it only us???


This seems a little stuck on the question of "why". I'll come back to that.

(for those that it is only us) Do you think the mentally retarded person knows they are retarded or different than everyone else? Have you have ever been around anyone with mental retardation? If so did you tell them they were retarded or did you do your best to pretend they were 'normal' and not act like something was wrong with them?



Yes, I have been around Autism, Mild Asperger's, Sever Asperger's, Dementia, and Brain damage. In all cases I was able to teach them something. Something they enjoyed and were empowered by. Archery, D&D, Addition and Subtraction, Love, and Hope; respectively. There was nothing wrong with them. It is just that nobody else had ever taken the time. It was easy actually. And they showed me great personal loyalty afterwards. Almost like I was the only person in their life that had ever treated them as an equal.

Do you think maybe that is how people treat us? They all know something is wrong with us and they just aren't giving us our label that they call us? (That is to say if we are making all of this stuff up in our head.) I just find it so odd that I find all of these videos on youtube and posts on here yet not one freaking person around me thinks like this.



I don't get my sense of self validation from videos. I formulate my own theory, develop tests, collect data, and refine my hypothesis. The universe will reveal its secrets. The people around me who shun me because I question the "official story" that TV and media give us, are just scared. They want to stay in the pack. Run with the herd. They don't like outliers or individuals. Not real individuals anyway.






So... as to the question of "Why".

That is only one question. Out of many. And not the most important one, by far.

    Yea?
    Where
    Who
    Had?
    What
    Why
    if
    Am I
    Is not
    Whereby
    Whence
    Whither wilt
    Have?
    Shall?
    After?
    Wherefore
    is anything
    Wilt
    peradventure
    that?
    See?
    Had?
    is it
    Sir?
    Ma'am?
    Said?
    and?











Have you ever experienced that game where a small child traps an adult in series of "why" questions?

Here is my simple solution. It is based on the hypothesis (tested over decades) that every time a child asks an older person why they already have some idea of their own. If one makes the mistake of answering, then the child doubts their own reasoning and wants to question your justification all-the-way-down. To see where they went wrong.

When a young child asks me why, say "why is they sky blue" I answer by asking them the same question. "I don't know, why do _you_ think the sky is blue" And every single time. I mean every single time. The child has told me their theory. They don't ask unless they already have one. They may be nervous. They may be shy. But they always have a theory.

When a small child asks why they are really asking for permission to tell you their theory. They just don't know how to formally do that yet.

p.s. why do you think differently than everybody else?

Way to get offended when someone is genuinely interested and engaging in dialog.




Out of all the useful information in that post could it be the one, and only picture, that set you off.

Am I talking with a visual learner.

Because that picture was not directed at you. I was sharing. It is something that almost every adult I have ever met has in common with me. We have all encountered the small child who asks the never ending series of "why" questions.

The picture was for us both. To see. To agree on.
Try not to get offended this round.

So...

Why do you think differently than everybody else?

I'm not a three year old either Mike but I sure ate that
up like one. Excellent post.

I know the exact time and date it all started for me.
I was four years old.

Why are we like this?

Because we choose to be like this. We just see the world with an Open and Curious mind. We resonate at a slightly different frequency than the average citizen, we are actually much closer or higher in vibration to TPTB because we can easily spot their failures and glitches in the matrix from above.

Ask your higher self during a meditative session. Your answers will be revealed for you.

Peace
