What we perceive to be real is different for all of us. What we believe deternmines that perception of reality. We see the proof of this in our history books. Each generation chages their perception and thus their realities change with them. New ideas are formed by the creative thinkers in society and new judgements are made as a result. Yet the more they change, the more they stay the same.
Simple logic dictates that reality is the by-product of the decisions we make in the now. The decisions are made from the infinite possibilities that exists in the future. We obtain those possibilities by what we are taught in the past. Which brings us to the existance of two kinds of decisions made at any one time; action and reaction. Reaction is that type of decision made when we respond in a learned or conditioned fashion. Action is the kind of decision that takes a lot of thought and planning. These two kinds of decisions are common to everyone to one degree or another. Even the creative thinker reacts to the world around them even as the reactionaries give thought to their actions.
What reality do you fit into? Are you sane and follow the judgements of the majority, or are you insane and think outside the norm? Not everyone who thinks outside the norm is insane and not everyone who follows the judgements of the majority sane. Which are you and why does it matter? If you can answer these questions then you are doing much better than me. LOL
Thanks George for making me think. There went another night. LOL
