How do you know you know anything?


Thank Einstein and the rest of the infinite cosmos for relativity for the reason that it can truly help you with these questions. It's such a disgustingly blatant concept that many persons of today's society don't excercise, AT ALL. Due to this 'cultural' society having such an obsession with the current set of "knowledge" and procedures that 'prove' things to us, many perceive and conceive solely in absolutes, black and white, many of which are laughable.

The Ego, is a powerful tool, and is a powerful betrayer

Who says the ego even exists?

Can anybody cut out and physically show me an "ego"?

If i did know any of the answers they would only be applicable to myself...what your universe is doing is up to you to find out.

How do you know that ATS even exists. For all you know you could be in an insane asylum arranging your own feces thinking you are posting this on the internet.

In fact that is your reality as I am a part of your subconcious trying to reconnect the fractured parts of your mind.

`Arranging your own feces`, that is funny in a strange sort of way...rearranging your own feces would make you a perfectionist...could that bring the ego back on to the scene.?

I feel sorry for the ego. People are always trying to "eradicate" it, "transcend" it, and so on.

Poor little thing...must get kind of sad and lonely being the only thing that keeps countless beings from total enlightenment.

So I feel sad for the poor, universally dumped-on ego. Come on, don't you think the pitiful, cringing thing could use some love? Love is the way, right? I am going to try to project some love and acceptance at the ego, maybe that's what it needs. Just a thought...

I don't know anything definitively.
I can only claim to know what I m experiencing right now, in terms of my senses. That's it.
I came to that realization a while ago, and have just gotten used to it.
Though what the ego (myself) has to do with any of that, I don't know (of course).
