WHEN A MAN DECENDS INTO THE DEPTHS OF HIS OWN MIND HE WILL FIND THINGS THAT HE DOSNT WAHT TO KNOW WERE THERE. A NOROMAL MAN WOUDLD BE HAUNTED BY THE
DEPRAVITY OF THE DARKEST FORM OF HIS CONSOUSNESS BUT THE TRULY DEPRAVED ARE THE ONES WHO EMBRACE WHAT HE FINDS AND LETS IT COMSUME HIM. THEN IT
BECOMES HARD TO TELL THE MAN FROM THE DARKNESS THAT WAS CREATED BY HIS MIND.
The issue becomes how we blend the unavoidable darkness of our minds into our everyday lives. Society expects us to fit into certain predetermined
molds that have been developed over centuries of day in and day out life of many people. You see, when too much of a person’s inner mind begins to
show it has an effect on the people around them thereby having a effect on society as a whole, albeit a small one.
When we look at social classes we see the suppression of our deeper darker brains more clearly. The lower class are almost expected to be hard working
yet depraved and have a more flexible moral code when it comes to making ends meet, the middle class seem to be always wanting to attain more that
could be the base urge to gather more gods that are better for you and make your life easier, the upper class seem o have it all, sometimes they came
up through the class system other times they were born into it. The bottom line is that in every perceived social class in every person there is the
part of the brain that is shut off and blocked off from our concise mind. It is no more prevalent in any class than the other. A working class family
making ends meet by means that they wouldn’t usually consider is no different form an upper class person doing some morally reprehensible act for
their own personal gain. It is our mind and the conditions we are in? The darkness that reside in the back of all of our minds with some people
anyways seems to be waiting for a trigger to erupt and make its self known.
When we take a look at crime for example, we see the darkness of the human mind coming out in many ways. Be it the seemingly innocent stealing of a
chocolate bar by a child who may or may not know better but even as children we have a sense of what is right or wrong. Or look at someone who steals
a car or a painting it is the same thing on a different level. Murder, rape, torture and other sorts of really horrible crimes come from a very bad
place of the mind. That however brings up the question of whether the person learned that behavior from somewhere or it was in them from the
For someone who steals a loaf of bread and some eggs to feed their family, they aren’t stealing form a place of depravity but of necessity, unless
the behavior becomes habitual. Compromise is a slippery slope it may seem hard to see how one could move from stealing bread to feed their family to
stealing a car or jewelry. Is it our sense of right and wrong being dulled, us becoming numb to the reality that we are doing things that we
wouldn’t dream of doing and doing them without compunction, or, is it the darkness in our minds and personalities that leads us to do these things
that we would never do, the primal desires the base urges that go against what we are taught and what society tells us is right and how we should live
If someone murders someone it is a serious crime right? Society says it is, most people say and believe that it is. Some people however will commit
this act with little or no remorse. Why is that? Is it the inner darkness of our minds protruding upon our conciseness? Or was it form a place of
necessity, life or death situations bring up a interesting point. When someone is in a life or death situation what goes through their mind? How can
we know? The bottom line is we can’t know for sure until we are in a situation like that. However, the inner darkness of mans mind, the underlying
factors that could bring out behaviors learned or not are innumerable.
On a completely different level we have religious beliefs and the whole set of morals and rights and wrongs that come with that which can compare to
society but can also contrast sharply with social norms. Religion teaches us what is right and wrong based on that religions particular text and
teachings. These are often in common with societies views in regards to right and wrong. When we look at the news and see that religious leaders doing
horrible things, why when they are supposed to be closer to God and living a lifestyle that is quote un quote purer than others, a lifestyle other
followers can aspire to. What causes these people who are looked up to in their community to descend into a life of depravity and most of the time
downright criminal behavior? The mind and what it is capable of, the parts of our minds we suppress, the darker depths of our minds that range far and
wide from the social norms, what is viewed as acceptable in and out of our homes and circles of people we associate with on a daily basis.
Religious zeal which drives people to do things in the name of God that most people wouldn’t do under any circumstances has to be questioned, is it
blind following is it religious belief or is it the dark side of our minds able to come out under the guise of religious beliefs? We can’t delve
deeply into a zealots mind because when anyone is explaining things that they believe whether they are informed or not it is I believe it because I
believe it, few people have the ability to articulately describe what they mean.
The argument can also be made that the darkness of our minds is not on a mental level but it is created by the chemical composition of our brains. A
seemingly normal functioning person that has a healthy family and social life can out of nowhere snap and do horrible things. Why? Could it be the
chemical composition of the brain that brings out the perceived darkness of our minds? One small environmental change or one foreign substance that is
introduced to the body can elicit a reaction in someone that they would under normal circumstances not consider as a possible course of action. Drugs
legal or illegal change the way that we think and see the world, they also alter our brain and body on a physical level. So is the inner darkness of
our mind being suppressed by our sense of right and wrong or is it being driven by a series of physical factors that contribute to the development of
our minds and therefore our behaviors?
When we take a look at dreams everything is open to interpretation. Psychology from its infancy has tried to explain and assign a meaning to dreams.
Why do we dream? Is it the dark side of our minds and personalities that we don’t show to the people around us having the ability to manifest in a
way that they cant cause harm to us or others. But how does that explain when you are out of breath and scared in a dream and you wake up out of
breath and scared. Is there a physical connection to dreams? Is the concise mind still in control when we are un concise? IS dreaming what separates
us from the darker areas of our minds; do they protect us from ourselves?
