Forum Mind Reading
    #3268618 - 10/23/04 06:41 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I always find it amusing how frequently some posters will attempt to "read the mind" of others by telling them what the other is thinking or by responding to totally non-existent words/thoughts. I am not talking about mere clarification nor simple misunderstandings.

Not surprising to me (but should be surprising to those who believe in telepathy) is that this form of mind reading is invariably wrong.

Are these posters on drugs? Do they have severe reading disorders? Or do they truly believe that have the inside track on another's thoughts?

The proof is in the pudding.

"I always find it amusing how frequently some posters will attempt to "read the mind" of others"

You mind read that?

"telling them what the other is thinking or by responding to totally non-existent words/thoughts."

assuming is not mind reading.

Youve answered your own question, tho you had to add a lable to that statement so you would have something to bitch at :smile:

Life is confusion, its ok

This isn't just a problem with internet boards, swami. In my experience most people will try to take what they ASSUME someone is thinking and make it look as if that person WAS thinking that. It's a shitty deal, and I wich less people would do this :frown:

One thing I think would help is if people can get over the "is-ness" we use in English language (maybe others, I don't know). Someone will say something like "You think that..." when what they SHOULD be saying is "You appear to think that...". That simple little change of "you think" to "you appear to think" makes all the difference.

We must all realise that we are only observing this Reality of which we are all a part. There is no way you can KNOW BEYOND A DOUBT what happens outside of your own consciousness...you can only go by what your senses tell you...by how things appear to be. :wink:

There was a great read posted a few months back called E-Prime, though it didn't get nearly as much feedback as I had expected it would. Here's the thread:

umm swami, you did this just yesterday in banjankri's thread.
banjankri wrote 'great benefits' which you substituted with 'better person', or was that a mere clarification?
what's your excuse, drugs? reading disorder? telepathy?

everything is hilarious isn't it :wink:


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie
