crazyness!! a mind state it was, now, i feel normal and not so crazy. ut then when i get crazy, my ego goes into self protection mode. thats what it is. if that didnt happen, i may have troubles gettin along with reality.... but why does this happen? what in the long term do i get out of it? right now. whoop de he, i feel normal. i dont have thoughts of any thing like what i was saying...just a normal member of society. so whats the point of what happend before, as it was a mindstate i know longer feel the knowledge of. so it was like a conflict with my ego, which my ego won, because if it didn't win, i woulden't be typing this now would i? so then, why go against the grain, why even talk about this. why think like i was thinking?

hmmm

well make sure you actually DO SOMETHING with what you've learned.

You can always fall back on various art styles, like writing (even on message boards) or making visual/audio artworks. You can try and get your friends interested in "deeper" than normal conversation, which turns talking about sports or women or video games or whatever into a kind of collective thinking process which can be pretty fun.. You can try and invent something..

There's a track by Infected Mushroom which has a sample in it that goes something like this:

"The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success."

The geniuses are the thinkers who can actually stand up after an intense "thinking session [heh]" and apply what they were just thinking about to something having to do with everybody else. The "insane" are the thinkers who have problem balancing the thinking with actually DOING something related to the thoughts.... like ME :wink:


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Maybe you are manipulating us and faking the fact that your mindset has changed :shocked:

I've just got to reply to your sig

"wisdom can not be expereince without knowledge, nor can it be knowledge without expereince. Only when both are acquired, can the doors to wisdom be opened"

Yes..my take on it is.. wisdom and knowledge are gained through experience. Through experience comes wisdom. Without experience there can be no wisdom. Life is a series of experiences, through which we gain knowledge and wisdom by learning from our experiences.

Indeed. A realization one must make on this path of wisdom or enlightenment is that one never knows to much. In fact it seems one never knows enough. And when one does, he sooner or later realizes that he knows so little. It is through the discovery of new things that gives us the wisdom that we know so little. Because when one of the doors is opens it leads to ten more.

try to ignore the conclusive thoughts.. just let that awareness flow through you, dont latch onto it.

Ahhh... when you think you've reached a conclusive thought. This has been a pitfall for me lately. You think your on to something and then bam... it stops.. sometimes it stops in the middle of a beautiful dreamworld, and it gives you hope. Other times you stop in the middle of a cold dark void, and it seems like there is no escape. Instead of letting your thoughts pan out endlessly.. your mind is triggered to stop at the void, and not grow anymore...you think you've reached the end.. when you actually just started. you must keep going.. but never put that stamp of approval on it, it only makes things more confusing.
