Absolutely right! Great example.
For some reason over the years I always seem to attract a lot of dodgy characters who later become friends.

In an infinite universe there is infinite suffering. There are an infinite number of poeple commiting suicide as i speak on differnt planets. There are an infinite number of societys torturing and killing those who speak the truth. There are an infinite number of lives who never get to know or understand anything but pain in reality. This will never end and there is nothing you can do to save them all. There is no magical heaven... there is no freewill... everything you are is just memories... without them you are nothing.
We are all looking for a face in the heavens and we arent getting $%^&. In the knowledge of these things there is an understanding that gives rise to a limitless compassion for us all.
There is also the other side of the spectum equally. It really is about where you are and who your with. All i can hope is that this place changes or that i can leave it.

I think we are what we think.
Yes, perception and environment effect what we think
But, where do thoughts come from anyway?
Do we all think the same?
How do you KNOW environment effects all equally?
I have seen families where the one child is a saint and the other is almost demonic.
Same environment. same parents. different progeny from the start.
