I use to compare my own ideas and sensations with the writings of philosophers, theologists, psycologists, scientists and so on. Every idea, in my opinion, may be an ancestral memory of something already lived in a past besides time, in a place besides space. Every life may be a mission its way. In other words life is a serious and wanderful thing and the material life just a segment of it.
Sometimes it' hard to teste those theories as they are not scientifically mesurable, at least for the moment, but the inner sensations are stronger than rationality. Every big brain of this planet (Einstein, Socrates, Buddha and so on) told about something appearantly impossible in the beginning, but they are still alive in our minds nowadays. What does it mean? May be that not all the truth has to be scientifically proved.
It's only my actual opinion.
The precise name of it is faith....not necessarily connected to a traditional religion, even though I think to be a Christian.
Very well said! I tell people all the time not to believe me or anyone else until they have researched a subject entirely... Not just from one point of view. Do research, come to your own conclusions and your own ideas from your own experience. People are too willing to accept an "authority" figure's point point of view as factual without asking questions. That is ignorance.
I have read books and have taken other peoples theories and experiences to mind I have learned that I have to try my own experiences on things because I am not a firm believer in if one person says this then it is we all have to make are own paths and find out our own ways but sometimes you find a person that can help inspire your way of thinking and that can guide you to the right ways then you cherish that person
right back to you:)
The way I see it: answers are certainties; for some, such as yourself, it seems, these certainties are temporary and interchangeable. For others certainties are hard-fought, over-invested pivots around which 'being' travels. Faith and trust is invested to maintain certainty and creating certainty in other people helps pay that price. If someone 'attacks certainty' people take it personally because of this investment in it. That's my take :P
In my mind it remained a question as opposed to an assumption; though I did assume more then question in the writing, I also maintained my uncertainty therein. I try to avoid coming between someone and their certainty and I'm happy you have found what you are/were looking for :)
I'm with you about the 'not shoving certainty down throat' but I disagree when it comes to the "haven't experienced it" part... I don't think there is any justification for shoving certainty down someone else's throat... even if one thinks one totally understands another's predicament / has experienced it before; it is my perception that in such a case it isn't that such a someone needs an answer, so much as to figure out which question to ask. In other words, other people's certainty is cool with me but throwing it at someone else is not. Were you implying that I was doing some certainty shoving? If it came across that way I apologize.
My questions have not been answered, I don't bother seeking out other peoples' opinions, I just do... haven't had any bouts with electricity since I experienced the magical powers it seemed to overpower me with.
My biggest issue is not knowing how much we say we know is completely unknown...
