Great thread Sol!
As a generally optimistic pessimist (the duality in my own mind), I decided on my avatar for a few different reasons. The explanation first:
The nuclear explosion in the background represents what happens when the truth is released. It represents a paradigm shift of sorts, because when one
has a paradigm shift, it tends to be earth-shattering, much like a nuclear explosion. The man in black in the foreground represents the terror people
face when going under a paradigm shift. This explanation is one side of my dualistic mind. The other interpretation is that the man in black
represents those in control of our daily lives. Call them TPTB, Illuminati, Reptilians, whatever. It doesn't matter. The explosion in the
background represents the wake of destruction that these individuals leave for those of us who see through the lies. Much in the same fashion as
having a paradigm shift, seeing the truth through the lies of TPTB can be very devastating.
My personal saying "The truth is better left unseen..." holds a few different meanings with me. In one respect, I almost wish that I could go back
and un-see what I have seen. I almost wonder if I would be better off if I didn't have the knowledge that I do, and the views that I hold. The
better part of me says different. The other meaning is that for some people, the truth (like I said before) is an earth-shattering event, and
sometimes it is better to let sleeping dogs lie.
Overall, my avatar represents the duality of my own mind, and how I am able to remain "in the gray area" of thought while being able to see both
sides of the equation as it were.
Peace be with you.
