That is quite ridiculous to say this so absolutely. *I'm also aware of the appearance of me seemingly defending a similar charateristic in me..but I
really cannot allow myself to care about that garbage.*
I can come up with much better assertians than that based on the question..but really, I would have it based on something, and I understand it can
vary person to person why these feelings of sensation can result from uncovering apparant truth in big issues: so I don't believe this is a
legitimate question at all.
It's very simple to me. If you get off on conspiracies, if they literally give you a rush, then that is something you need to look at. If you, for
example, have a theory about Alpha Draconians and the NWO enslavement of mankind, and it excites you on some level and repulses you on another, then
you need to look at your intentions. Are you feeding an addiction and side-stepping proper logic and common sense in order to satisfy your addiction?
If you have such a theory and are just plain terrified, and there is noting "fun" about plotting it out in your head, then I would say you do not
have a conspiracy addiction.

That is very simple indeed. It making reference to reality is a whole other question.
The variables involved, between the root intention/drive and the resulting feeling, absolutely (I can say that since it's in conflict with an
absolution) makes this a generalized, simple and primitive statement. Your brain is much more equipped than that. Don't feed it selfishly, make it
The variables involved also determine the result generated from the belief of uncovering a significant truth.
such black and white simplicity seems to suggest some sort of divinity within you right now doesnt it? It's not correct to by-pass such relavent
circumstances that are involved and, as a whole, unique within each person.
Even though, I can see what your trying to say..and under specific circumstances I can see how this assertion can be correct: I would never generate
an absolution on it because it's inherently wrong.
I agree every person should ask themselves if these beliefs aren't for the purpose of self-satisfaction as opposed to logic or truth. But what if the
person is one of many who feel satisfied when they uncover the truth? It's so easy to come up with scenarios that make this "formula" useless..but
that's a given based on the physical nature you used to describe a truth.
The only possible truth that can be taken from your statement is that everyone is physically the same..which is not true...of course.
One can't even attribute root cause in others, and often themselves, to such wide-ranging and variable meaning of words for feelings like 'fun' or
'kick' or 'rush' or whatever. That's very difficult and can only be up to the person themselves in the end to figure out (which they may easily
not). Then after they find the true root can they determine whether it's true to reality or not. Trying to describe the standard or smoking-gun
behaviour of this is misleading, untruthful and detrimental.
I would be much more worried of people who have no good understanding of reality. These people are automatically not capable of using logic since they
don't have the base for it.
The biggest issue with this site are people applying the logic of absolution towards five-sense/physical situations. I find it astonishing. Many of
them are of scientific beliefs yet they inverse the ideas of the greatest scientific and philosophical minds. Now wonder they are often
You can't find absolute truth within an illusion, only a variable reflection of one.
