The problem with an individuals reality is that you can not prove a negative. That is you can never prove that something does not exist. You can
state that you can not see / hear / feel / taste or smell it. You can state your belief that it does not exist and you can state your belief that
everyone else's beliefs are the same as yours. But you can never prove it.
Since you can never prove the non existence of anything, you are stuffed! This is what makes ATS such an interesting place!
I'm getting all you PhoenixXXX and wolfy avatars mixed up all the time here
Good post. That is it in a nut shell. We all see reality as en entire scope within our own reality, but often we don't realise it. Everything is a
certain way. Some people push their thinking to break that scope and then they see things in an all encompassing scope which feels to them as if
they've realised something astonishing and can't wait to tell others.
But others may have already had that epiphany or maybe they always realised it.. Or maybe the roller-coaster of thought that they were swept up in has
taken them beyond their comprehension of understanding the complexity f it all and has broken into fractured yet mutually exclusive segments of
reality.. one minute everything makes sense. then they find none of it makes sense. but now this all makes sense.. etc.
Most of us manage to focus on what is in front of us, deal with it, and the rest might or might not exist, but as long as nothing drastic happens to
our reality, we don't need to care as much.
Other things require you to step back from thinking and look at the picture objectively. And the things that don't make sense, can safely be ignored.
The things that do make sense and that you can have input on or hope to change, are what should matter and these things should be common to most of
On here however, I see that's not the case. Or it is a case of that fractured reality some have, that appears to take hold when they enter here. And
I know here is different to youtube or facebook or your other forum or whatever it is. It sets a different mood, mindset and attitude.
I think some people are quite well adjusted when they are about their daily meanderings, but as soon as they put themselves in this mood, they are
engulfed by it. They have to be, because from how they describe their reality it's something that seems completely irrational, non-functioning world
where they should need help to open doors.
Others though you realise are well aware of the world. And you don't feel so unique or complex. Brings you back.
I think we all have potential for a different and unique truth. It's true to us. It's the stuff you have to chip away at, the non-functioning parts,
before you can see it or see it spark into life.
Bit like everyone arriving at heaven to see a long line of people waiting at the pearly gates..
