What I Believe

People are selfish and stupid. Me and you included. We can’t help it, it’s how we were built. But the worst part about it all is that we have this inner dialogue that we maintain with ourselves that says that the way we see the world is just the way it is.

But listen, I think that if you know that little secrete then all can be better. See… if one knows that their world view is horribly biased then one can adjust to that fact and roll with it all.

So yes I’m saying that everything is subjective, and yes we can all live with that. We all already do just without acknowledging it. You see that no mater what belief structure you adhere to you have tweaked in your own way, you do not believe the exact same thing as anyone else… so your world view is already subjective you just kinda decided which outside influences to let control you (I do not think that the decision process is as simple as “deciding” like one decides on a shoe purchase.) One of the pernicious parts of all this is that you usually do not know when you chose or why. The mechanisms are complex and hidden, fear being a big motivator but not the only one. But at some point in your life you set upon these ideas and they are now what you have.

So, it's hopeless? Perhaps so. That's why I personally believe that the Flying Spaghetti Monster likes me more than he likes you! See!
