Okay... I was wondering about how everybody else perceives the world around them. Like... You see the world (or at least I see the world) in first person view... And I can think about my decisions and am usually in complete control. I say usually because sometimes you do things without thinking and after doing them you think that it was very unlike you to do that and you don't know why you did that.
But anyway everything is in first person and you are conscious of everything.
Now how does this lead to conspiracy? Well have you ever thought about other people?
Does everybody else see like you do?
Is everybody else aware like you are?
Are other people like you?
Or are you just special and the only one? By you i mean am I just special and the only one and everybody else isn't.
For example, could this be similar to the Matrix where everything is a program for my mind?
I say my mind because I don't even know if you reading this are like me or not!
Maybe your responses are part of the program too!
How will I ever know? Like...
The feeling of being "special" kinda makes me wonder... Am I the only one how I am?
The other thing I wanted to address was the whole usually being in control item. Why does this happen?
Why do you do things you wouldn't normally without being aware until it is done? Is the program working into me as well?
Am I special because i can fight the "program"?
Am I not special at all and everybody is like this?

If so how can people live with themselves doing horrid things like beheading others and such?
Just imagining that in first person is ridiculous and makes me think others can't be like me.
Or are they?
How can you live with yourself after that?
how can your mind accept such horrid actions?
Is this the stuff they wouldn't normally do?
Or are they not like me?
If I am special then why me?
Why am I a special one?
Why is there a program built around me?
What makes me worth in such a way to build this huge world around me?
Am I the only one left?
Is this consciousness even real?
Are you even real?

It's as if God is in this Smiting mood, and it's centered around the people I know.
But it can't be that way. God surely can't be effing up the lives of everyone else just to give ME a message, can he? Can he?
Surely I'm not important enough in the Grand Scheme for such radical attention?

We never act or react to a circumstance the way we would normally think we would. That's why I tell people that they never know what the'd do in any given situation until they are there. I believe that that is why we should never make "Well, I'd..." remarks;in all honesty, we don't know what we would do.

We all exist within our own realities. Unfortunately, our individual realities merge to become what is known as the unified reality,which is what is perceived on the outside of our being. In all truthfulness, the mind has duped us into thinking that what is "out there" is really out there rather than in here..(Pointing towards my head)

I am only real in the sense that I am exactly what your mind figures it needs along its journey.. Just as you are only real in the sense that you are what my mind has declared necessary to achieve my ultimate goal. You see...until one realizes that there is only unity,there will always be questions such as you have asked.
Is this consciousness even real? Are you even real?

As far as what I meant when I said do you see the world like I do... I meant it.. Do you see life in first person perspective? How you literally see the world.. Not interpret it but see it. Can you see first person? Or do you see third person? Is your idea of third person my idea of first person? When you see black are you really seeing my white but your mind tells you it is black so when you see it you register black? How can I be so sure you even see anything at all? I guess what I am trying to say is that I see the world through my perspective only and I wonder if other people have their perspectives too. I wonder this because I can never know what they see... Will I ever know if your perception is the same as mine? (If you perceive at all!)
