when you choose.....yes choose....to see your self as different in class, as those who do not find your interest, well....iteresting, you mentally
place those people under your "ability" to see "the truth". what does that getcha? what makes your lofty view of the world any better than say
someone who likes the entertainment industry. (being as how that seems to be the industry of vhoice for denagration here)
Using objectivity, it probably does NOT make my "lofty view" any better than say someone who likes the entertainment industry. From my subjective
perspective it does
. It is just a matter of interest. Yes, everyone has the right to their interests just as they have the right to find others who
share in those same interests.
Point of this thread, I thought anyway, was trying to figure out, firstly why his interests had changed; secondly why the change of interest had
severed some emotional attachment to those who are still of the former interest; and thirdly, are there more ppl who are experiencing the same
transformation.. that is what I had gathered from it anyway.
you state im wrong eh? it would be like saying, your oranges are better than my apples. but eh, were still just trees here.
Yes, I did state you were wrong. We may still be trees, but some of us do produce a different fruit than others. To me, yes, I prefer my oranges to
and when they talk about ryan seacrest....do you give them the same blank stares they give you? i wonder if they say the same things about you?
Well, he was an example, but in the context of what you are saying, pretty much. I am so far out of "the loop" with the personal lives of
celebrities that I am
when ppl try to talk about them w/ me. And they could very well be saying the same things about me and in fact, I am sure
ahhh and you stumbled into my point.
where does that line have to be drawn? who chooses where that line is drawn? when the line is drawn, why does it never move?
when you choose to place people on the other side of your line, then you have choosen too. not them. they are who they are. and when you find your ina
"society" full of "sheeple", just know, its a reality you have place apon your self.
so relax...and enjoy the "differences" *gasp* in people.
That "line" gets drawn w/in each persons own mind based on the individual's likes and dislikes.
Who said anything about it NOT moving? Obviously that is what has happened w/ quite a few ppl on this thread, thus the OP's point in making it.
No, typically "they" are who they are suggested to be. As far as "its a reality you have placed upon yourself," if I understood that correctly
then I would respond "yes" and "no."
The world as I view it will ALWAYS be just that...... as I view it. I can't escape from subjectiveness, but I can try to gain some objectiveness to
bring into my subject viewing thus expanding my viewing ability.
I very much enjoy "DIFFERENCES" in ppl which is why I tend to look outside this "box" that some of those in our society seem to have crawled
then stop denagrating them by calling them euphimistic names like "sheeple". and taking shots at their supposed lack of brain power by claiming they
are asleep. then nobody will think this of you.
Well, I can't answer for the "sheeple" comment because I have never used that term.
And the fact that I don't view them as having an actual "lack of brain power" is the very reason why I get annoyed. It isn't that they don't HAVE
it, it is that they WON'T use their brain power. Some would rather be taken care of and told what to do, how to dress, what drinks and foods they
should consume, what choices to make, what they should know blah blah blah.
But I digress.... I actually don't have a problem with not being liked. I am a charmer and the company I keep IRL accept me, flaws and all as I do
them. That still does not negate the fact that, in me, yes, something has disconnected from the way I process most of what used to keep me "bonded"
to them. Something has changed and I hardly argue the fact that it was something in me.
look down on people? no...not you........
OH, not what you were looking for?
