I've been waiting to make a thread about this topic but my only problem is believing I won't be able to make the the thread when trying to explain
the question I'm asking. Instead of not making the thread at all, I'm simply going to do my best to explain. I don't even know what I'm trying to
say, the thoughts that run through my head just simply cannot be put into words almost as if it's a Universal Language of some sort. So, here we
In the past few days I got to thinking about the possibility of how the saying "Ignorance is bliss", and the bibical story of the Tree of Knowledge
of Good and Evil could possibly be related in a some way. In the story, basically you eat the able and you gain knowledge. But today, there are many
different ways of gaining such knowledge. See my quote below. 5th Paragraph down.
In the past 4 months I've been going through a transformation. During which, I've found new perspectives on life and relationships. Most importantly
of all, I finally found myself after being lost pretty much my whole life and living through it blissfully ignorant. Because of what I know today,
I'm completely miserable but wise. Now I don't know what was better, being blissfully ignorant or miserably wise. I came accross a quote online,
that explained this easier for me;
The pleasures of ignorance are as great, in their way, as the pleasures of knowledge. ~Aldous Huxley
A wise man he sure was, to have came up with that quote. Because I can't stress, just how true it really is. Being blissfully ignorant and miserably
both have it's own perks.
Here's a quote that I made just last night when trying to summarize my thoughts into a small, simple short quote.
"Different perspectives based on mental/physical disability, curiousness, and drugs are similar to eating the apple from the Tree of Knowledge of
Good and Evil because it allows you to open up your mind and see things from a different perspective of which people can either choose to use for good
out of selflessness or bad out of selfishness" - Myself
Because of my disibility; I gained a new sense. The sixth sense. Very unique and it's been helping me a lot now that I've been working on it. With
it, I can see right through people and their intentions in most cases. It's quite funny, how people act around me not knowing that I'm deaf or hard
of hearing unless I tell them I didn't hear something. This is one way I test people because in a lot of cases I've seen people change how they
acted towards me quickly after knowing about my disibility. And I know why too, and it's not just one reason but many different reasons. I suppose
this is the reason why, I seem to be interested physchology and sociology. For those who don't know about my disability, I'm completely deaf in my
right ear with 80% hearing loss in the other. I wear a hearing aid in order to be able to hear the way I do today.
Here's a link to my full information regarding my Transformation and helping people to understand me better. It's a bit of a long read, but worth it
and just may give you different perspectives. It's on Facebook, all you have to do is go to the link and go to Notes because that's where I put
Understanding me better and my Transformation
I'm simply asking for others opinions about what they think of this subject. Personally, now that Cardinal George Pell has described the biblical
story of Adam and Eve as a myth by saying the story was created for religious reasons. I'm now more convinced that God does not exist. Although, I
don't think anyone will ever know if Cardinal George Pell was telling the truth or not but from what I read about him, he believed he was on a
Mission from God. I personally don't think he wouldn't have a reason to lie about such story being a myth or not.
I hope I got some of you thinking. Because this topic, has kept me up nights just thinking and trying to figure out the logical meaning behind all of
this and how to put the thoughts that go through my mind into words. I must have only had 4 hours of sleep in the last two days.
Thanks for taking the time to read my thread, and I appreciate it a lot. And I'm sorry, but this is the best I can do for now in explaining this. If
something else comes to mind, I will be sure to post it.
