There special place may have been in their heads. I mean no offense to either by stating this. A connection can be made with a "universal consciousness" which is guarded and closed off by those who exhibit and feel fear.

Fear is what locks our minds. It binds us, and prohibits us from knowing the truth. Think about it. "Self Preserve" = Self BEFORE You Serve. Anyone who serves themselves first, how could they connect mentally, if indeed something within was there to connect with?

Fear can not go there.


Hate is not the polar opposite of LOVE. That is the lie. We are conditioned to think it is hate that is the oppostie of LOVE.

It's the deception.

How can you honestly justify hating anyone without first FEARING that whatever it is you hate has the potential to take someone/something you love from you?

We learn this at such a young age, usually before we speak. Before we are even potty trained. Fear is what we feel when something we love is threatened. Hate is our automatic reponse, before we are even consiously aware that we were afraid.

This makes us unaware of our own thoughts.

Concsious mind creates 2,000 sparks of electricity per second between brain cells.

Subconcsious mind creates 400,000,000,000 sparks per second between brain cells.

All (YES, ALL) Sensory input is first delivered to the subconsious mind, before it gives it to the conscious mind. Your fears dictate what truth of your own experiences makes it to YOUR conscious mind.

Where is most your truth locked away?

Fear of losing that which you love is still FEAR!!!

I know what you are willing to die for.

What are you willing to live for?

You need not manifest your fears in a shared reality. However, you must resolve them within your own mind.

Keep writing down your thoughts. In your journal/diary. As you write them KNOW NO ONE SHALL EVER READ IT.

Your FEAR of not being accepted has caused you to show only portions of yourself to everyone you know. Are you the same personality with eveyone? Do you act the same towards your boss as you do towards your lover as you do towards your siblings as you do towards your parents as you do towards your neighbor .. . .. . OR do you wear masks and decieve even yourself. Did you know Fear was the opposite of Love, or were you ignorant of your own intentions, your own brain?

Be prepared to know yourself. Do not be afraid.

Edited to add: When you are ready to be more than a survivor, you'll remember reading this.

I'm leaving for Iraq, again, tomorrow.

Peace,
John

Question: when mentioned writing a book I noticed something quite odd about me, whenever I make something, I always end up unappreteating it and destroying it, I can't figure out why?

This theory has been re-adapted due to the better understanding of the frontal lobe. This is where there is a connection between irrational thoughts which are precluded, and rationality of piecing together. Creativity in other words, which is hard to put a finger on.

I now take the creative liscense to displace fear with the next line of reasoning.

Woah, those words, how did you know?! lol

Good luck in Iraq

Sorry, I should elaborate. I've been back from Iraq for some time now, however been recovering (spiritualy). I'm back, a little worse for wear, but back safely, thank you.

Esoteric Thank You for your strong words, I wish I could practice this.
I have sailed most of the Seven Sea's with my head up, but my neighbors/fellow humans hostility scares the crap out of me.
And yes first comes fear then hate.
I'd rather face a hurricane at sea. (I have)
Take Care, Please.

If your mind can think to ask the question, your mind holds the answer. A measure of contemplation in your subconscious mind allows you to contemplate the question. You could not consciously concieve the question, without first having the answer, whether conscious of it or not. Could you?

I don't know I doubt we will get there without fear. Heck the tower of babel is for good reason its just how it works. We can reach our heads in to a poinnt but It will take a hell of a lot for everyone to reach such levels.

I would like to expound on the idea that we mostly only see certain aspects of our own experiences.

I think our intentions as individuals does dictate how much information we take in about our own experiences and our own environment.

In your view, does our intentionality have more of an affect on individaul's actions and behaviors than most are willing to consciously admit to anyone, including themselves?

I thought i would post some material that parallels some of the concepts in this thread. Some of it may be previously stated material, but in different approaches. I'm cutting and pasting from another not so different thread:

What internal mechanism which is not external provides humans the tools necessary to overcome the disfunctionality of humans' perceptions?

Is it your contention that humanity has no disfunctionality concerning our perception?


Can you prove our minds do not operate in accordance with the "Law of Association"?

Can a person fully integrate consciously new information from thier own experiences if they do not have the capability to attach the new information to the pre-requisites that must first be accepted as true by the mind of an individual?

In other words: How much will a person fully comprehend "5" as a real and truthful bit of information without any knowledge whatsoever (or denial of acceptance) of "1", "2", "3", and "4"?

When we begin kindergarden on day one does the teacher begin teaching us algebra, geometry, or Trigonometry?

No. Why? Because we do not have the building blocks necessary for our brain cells' neuro net which enable us to take us mentally from the known (from our perspective) to the unknown (from our perspective)

This is what the "Law of Association" refers to. We must be able to Associate consciously new information with pre-existing information, or we do not learn to fully understand the new information.

That is how the brain works to add new information. New information stored in our minds' (conscious minds')must attach itself to pre-existing information that we accept as factual.

So, if our minds abide by such rules as: We can only fully integrate new information to pre-accepted information, then what is the first few truths which we started with from our beginning? And do these first accepted truths in our reality serve us best to comprehend our reality, or do they hinder our progress to understand?

Well, we all begin with the first accepted truth passed on to us through our genetics, and this primary command dominates every cell that comprises us as the macro-organism.

The first truth is the instinct which exists immediatley after conception, but inherently before as well.

That instinct is "Self PreServe", which broken down means:
Self = Self, aka ME, aka I
Pre = Before
Serve= To Serve, aka AID, aka HELP

So the first accepted truth which exists at the core of our original computer (our brain), and at the core beginning of our personality, and at the core beginning of our opinions, and at the core beginning of our sense of SELF as an observer, and hence at the core beginning of how we interpret our very environment, and every experience.

So how does this affect our personality, opinions, observations, memories, experiences, and self?

We judge things in a certain way, often subconsciously, with the tools we are provided.

Think of the symbolism of having an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other. We are driven by a core program that may be disfunctional, because it causes us to look at everything in usually only 2 ways, which is not always a way to understand the truth, especially where the truth can not be found by examining it by only two different ways.

Because of "Self Preservation" and the fear it introduces into our psychi, we tend to ask ourselves two questions in determining our judgment of all we contemplate.

Question #1: "How can this be used to my advantage / How is this good for me / How can this be utillized to better my existance?" (considering Self Before Serve, this would be the example of how our minds interpret it to mean self first)aka SELFISHNESS. And, this is symbolically represented as the devil on one shoulder.

Question #2: "How could this be detrimental to me / What are the negative consequences that could be / How could this hurt me? (This is considering our FEARS, and our fears of the consequences, taking into account that we must serve our own needs and wants first) And, this is symbolically represented as the angel on the other shoulder.

Summary
1) We accept new information being integrated into our minds by only being able to attach the new infomation to the existing information, but only if it is compatible.

2) Our first accepted truth only enables us to ask 2 questions when judging everything we experience: How can this benefit me? & What negative consequences to me exist?

This is how our mind works, and the first truth we have.

So, can you prove we do not operate in accordance with the above information?

Can you disprove the "Law of Association"?

Can you disprove the instinct?

Can you provide proof that an internal mechanism exists that could overide our primary genetic command that prohibits us from even considering the possibilities that lie beyond "Is it good for me, or bad for me?"

Does such an internal mechanism exist? Would you even know it was there?

I mean, let's face it. On average people are not even consciously aware of 99.99999998% of their own thoughts.

A thought is the sharing of information delivered (usually) electically between brain cells. This process can be (and has been) measured via electrodes measuring electrical impulses in the brain. What were the results?

Well, what was found is that the conscious part of the mind produces 2,000 sparks of electricity between brain cells per second. Whereas the subconscious part of the mind produces 400,000,000,000 sparks of electricity per second.

If you drop three zeros off each number and equate your brain to your own personal jet, it is the same as saying that you have your own personal aircraft capable of a speed of 400,000,000 miles per hour, but most people are only travelling about 2 miles per hour. What is the cause for this? Why is our mind fractionalized and not fully sharing information?

The state of our conscious mind dictates what information our subconscious mind is permitted to present to it. And, ALL sensory input first gets delivered to the subconscious part of your mind.

Therefor this information begs us to ask the question "Since my subconscious mind is calculating at a rate of 400,000,000,000 bits of information per second, but is only relaying 2,000 bits of information per second, why are we not consciously aware of the other 399,999,999,998 bits of information?

All of this could be displaced by the current acts of terrorism. Where the association is the furtherment of some cause, with absolutely no regard for self-preservation. If fact, the lack of it is a tool to instill a driven fear in the public.

I just think it is interesting.
