The Effects of Egocentrism
    #1622530 - 06/10/03 12:38 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Let's just start a list (in no particular order).

1. False sense of impending doom/change/whatever.
2. A need for control-> telekinesis/predicting the future/etc.
3. Warped perspective of time.
4. Change (not $, ya jackass) is hard to deal with [linked to the control problem].
5. Elitism.
6. Loneliness.

There's more, I'm sure, but I'll leave them for you.
Please number them. :wink:

I can't help but guess that your talking about me here? (if your not i apoligize)

I assure you, i don't think i am in anyway better than other people. In fact, ive lived most of my life feeling worthless then a commen person.

Maybe i worded my last post wrong, but you have the wrong picture of me.

You don't know me man!

1. maybe a fault
2. nope, just optimistic of the possiblitys/with strange experiences ill call my own
3. no
4. true, to a certain extent, but im still learning too, most change is good
5. no
6. kinda, but in manys i create my own hell, so its my fault do to my change in believe's
7. hell yes!

Johnnyfive- this post has nothing to do with you... wait, #9 does.  But in all honesty, this was NOT directed at you.  Maybe you're up for some self-examination?

infidelGOD: 8. Objectivism
Oooo... good one. :wink:

shr00m: 7. Confusion
This isn't always a bad thing, and I don't think it's a unique effect of egocentrism.
Thanks for the input.

In fact, ive lived most of my life feeling worthless then a commen person.

A feeling of worthlessness is no better than arrogance. It is the opposite pole. You have much to contribute, don't downplay your gifts little brother. Sacredness starts with a sense of self-worth not self-deprecation.

The proof is in the pudding.

Uhm.

I don't find myself to be very ego centered....but those first few explained what I've been feeling the past months...


1. False sense of impending doom/change/whatever.
2. A need for control-> telekinesis/predicting the future/etc.
3. Warped perspective of time.
4. Change (not $, ya jackass) is hard to deal with [linked to the control problem].

How can I change myself?

peace.

Do you people actually know what the word Egocentric means?!!

It doesnt relate to those with a belief in everything Sclorch disagress with for starters. In fact Id say this wholde thread is very egocentric in itself.

PEACE

By the way Johnny Id be very interested to hear your impressions of the mind as an organic super computer.

The face of egocentrism;



Credit to Cracka X for picture. 

Edit for Lucid; I just love the facial expression, and the big picture over her shoulder, I couldn't stop laughing. :grin:
