We always make a decision. I type these words and you will decide what they mean to you. It doesn’t have to be deliberate. We are conditioned if we aren’t instead mindful. It will happen one way or another.
We can have different truths and still make a whole movement forward? We can have different truths when the concept of truth is dropped. When you throw around their idea of truth, then something has to be the lie. When truth just isn’t relevant to the matter, you can just deal with what is, including where everyone is at in their hearts and minds. No one has to be a liar, no one has to be ignored, no need has to be denied. Start throwing around truths like justice, law, the economy, democracy, what happens?
We’d have no one to model great bad guys after.
Terrorists are created.
Where would con-artists be without lies? Leaders. The con-artist without lies is just an artist. The pervert without truth is just ignorant. The enemy without truth is your neighbor, your brother, your friend. What if there is no problem? Can you have problems without truth? Can you have truth without problems?
No truth, no problems. No problems, no problems, and that’s the truth. Does any truthing reflect reality better?
Truthers are unattached to reality. Truthers = liars. You are equal to your enemy in every situation. Your enemy is your best friend, is your self.
Not knowing how my computer works doesn’t really help me know how to fix the problem. Knowing how your computer works makes problems less of a problem.
Practice self truthing? Self truthing = self-actualization?
Self factualization? Eep, then is to be avoided. Self-realization is much better. Self factualization is self fracturization, and very far from reality. I will avoid that practice passionately. I prefer self-actualization, self-realization.
Even the good and bad guy in Die Hard have a laugh together. The hero and villain are both trying to solve the same problem. The difference between the hero and villain is not problem solving, it’s degree of personal investment. The hero is less attached to an outcome, more sensitive to the big picture that surrounds the problem.
The villain is more like the type that would risk everything? Even their life and sanity? Indeed, yes. The villain is everyone. The hero is no one, because they never think they are one.
Batman could be insane. They have performed a psychiatric diagnosis of Batman, a professional did. He is very much insane. They took his behavior over his entire history.
He isn’t in control as people think he is? Indeed, he’s coping very poorly. Jung offered some relevant insight here. Insanity is a sane response to an insane situation. The hero is always disturbed, always unhappy, even perhaps deeply pained. It’s what motivates the extreme selflessness.
We had some local guys dress up like super heroes to catch actual criminals. The police did not appreciate them. They did stop a store from being robbed. They haven’t changed the conditions that permit store robbery though, that motivate it. It is poor coping, bravery. The brave face is the most distressed face, the most desperate face. I like my fear. I also like my anger. I have no desire to be brave.
