Mind Over Matter
    #3331877 - 11/08/04 02:07 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I go to the canyon my school owns to view architecture students' work. There are horses there when I arrive. I love horses and i love petting horses. However, i didnt not pet them, i imagained petting them and riding them off into the hills. People will say, why didnt you pet the horse, i realize i never pet them, but i did in my mind. This was good enough for me. I live my life like this, a dreamer, visualizing my life as i see it, not how it actually is. This would be considered a terrible thing, and that i should go live it the way i want, but i am a dreamer and i dream all day. I dream of being a knight and traveling along the river and cmaping out on my own, as aragorn. Since it was in my mind, it happened and was wonderful. Is there a term for this? Is there anyone else out there like this?

Jesus said that if you commit adultery with a woman in your mind, you commit adultery. I agree in alot of ways. It's like killing someone in a lucid dream is really killing someone. Or petting a horse in your immagination is really petting a horse.

You create your own world, actually, you can create many worlds. Tolkien created a whole world and could create many others if he wanted to. Are we on the same page here?

yes, it is powerful, but i am always told to get out more and do things, get things done, but i am one to enjoy the long shower loving every second of it not caring for getting things done.

From this you must get my laziness

This ties into my theory of conciousness - every possibility DOES unfold, but we choose which parallel view view our decision making.  IE:  You can choose to miss school - in one parallel you miss school - in the other you go to school - you experience only one, though both exist.

I don't think this to be true however...  just a neat thing to think about when trippin' :smile:

No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

I am a dreamer and experience things just as you. I admit that i'm a procrastinater, and pretty damn lazy and i like thinking about life. It's hard to say though. Is having the thought of sexing a woman the same as actually having sex with her? I believe not.

where does that put responses though?
If i thought about petting the horse, later when i look back, i did, i know how i felt doing it and the entire experience. however, did the horse know i wanted to pet it, did it think i pet it. IE: thinking about having sex with a certain woman, i think cannot be fully cheating unless she has an affect from it, or she knows i am thinking it and it stimulates her. I wonder if there is a response end to these thoughts.
