Childhood Beliefs
    #3482598 - 12/11/04 07:05 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Do you remember the beliefs, no matter how strange or orthodox, whatever polarity you were, you held as a child, and how it affected you to this day? By child, I mostly mean as under 11 or 12, when "common sense" didn't have as much of a grip as it does when you're older, but it is up to you to decide when you were a child

There are two beliefs that I remember particularly well. I remember that I once believed that every thought that a human being thinks must have some reality somewhere, probably in the past, and that at least one human had thought of it before. While later as an early teen I regarded this belief as ridiculous, once I started studying quantum physics it seemed less ridiculous, in the fact that every thought we think may be happening somewhere in another universe by a theory of quantum physics

Another belief I once held was that all humans other than me were like organic robots, and could not possibly have a mind of their own. This probably came from my lack of comprehension of others' existence, as I could only conceive my own existence, so all other lives seemed ridiculous. This evolved, through experience of psychedelics and new thoughts, that while we all seem like alien organic robots to each other, we can find a common ground in a shared consciousness, as we can with the cosmos as a whole

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
