Also by Lady_Owl+322It's possible but highly unlikely that everyone has their own world. Like everyone in my life is in my world and in someone elses life everyone is in their world and different events are happening. It's hard to explain but it's possible to understand if you think about it. It's possible but highly unlikely, amirite?
Also by Lady_Owl+20Girls: sometimes going to a friends birthday party is hard and awkward because they always seem to end up inviting people that you can't stand. When you see them (that person that you don't like), all you want is to punch them in the face but you can't because it's your friends birthday party, amirite?
I used to think about this ALL the time; plus the possibility that I'm the only person who exists and that everything else is just created for me. It's interesting to mess around with the different possibilities
I've also considered that as well. Or that maybe I'm just a soul with an imagination and I've created everything around me. Even the bad stuff. Because my imagination creates a balance between good and evil to make my life and obstacle. Almost to teach me a lesson. I don't know. I like the idea of having created my whole world and all the people around me.
I always think about this, but mostly with perception and colors. e.g. Whats described as dark and black in one person's eyes could be bright and blue in another's.
You should probably get that checked out.
Why? Sounds like the average male brain to me.
True, true, but too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.
Too much.... fuck?..... Does not compute
"Fuck" has many meanings.
I've had the same thought. Everyone has their own reality. Everyone is the chosen one in their reality. However, I'd guess that the first rule of this would be never to speak of it to any other human being. Or maybe it's my world telling me that my idea is valid.
Exactly! I've had that thought before too. Sometimes when I think about it too much, it kind of gives me a headache because it's a very deep subject. Or at least I think it is. It's also extremely hard to explain to anyone else.
Maybe there are multiple "chosen ones" per reality. My friend just hit a tree at 15 mph biking and didn't even break a bone. But then again, it could be my reality messing with my brain.
Or there's the thought that you're actually lying in a hospital somewhere in a coma and everything around you is a dream..
I've thought of something like this and even made my own post about it. I've wondered whether or not this reality exists within my own mind and the real me is just locked in a crazy farm somewhere, like in Buffy The Vampire Slayer's Season 6 episode, "Normal Again". Maybe we're all just born to reflect our own reality within our minds and our true selves are all just kinda floating in some sort of energy or whatnot, sort of like The Matrix, only without the enslavement or technological aspect of it. When I talk to someone, am I only talking to another piece of myself? Am I merely typing this to a billion separate fragments of my own mind? It actually kind of irritates me sometimes that there's no way to be certain that the reality I know is actuality.
I thought of that episode too! I think. Was that the one where she thinks that she is actually in a mental institution and is just imagining her life and then the doctor in the mental institution tells her to kill everyone?
Yeah, it was a pretty cool episode. Spoiler alert See, Buffy gets injected with the venom from a beast which makes her hallucinate about the mental institution which is in a world where her mother is still alive and still married to her father. The doctor tells her that if she wants to come back to "reality" permanently, then she has to get rid of the traps her mind has created to keep her "fantasy" world desirable (i.e. her friends). She creates a trap made to kill all of her friends, but in the end, she can't go through with it and chooses to save her friends and remain in the "fantasy" world. The greatest thing about that episode is that it's never made clear which world is actually the hallucination.
It was. This makes me want to watch Buffy again
Is this the real life? IS THIS JUST FANTASY?!
That's crazy to think about.
DUUUUUUUUUN DUUUUUUUUUN, duuuuuuuun duuuuuuuuun, DUUUUUUUUN DUUUUUUUUN, duuuuuun duuuuuun
Do you know how many times i have pondered this. I have to leave before my brain explodes with all my crazy theories. I also hate the fact that we will never ever know if any of this is true. Also if this is my reality then is me thinking this forced you to post this. Or am I part of your reality. Wait give me a second, I have to go scrape my brain off the wall.
Unless your mind won't let you control it
Everyone around you is an actor! We are all watching you on TV right now!
i just came to this exact conclusion right now and googled it. i found this. it has to be true. ive been wondering if the "bond/connection/synchronization/companionship" i have with my friends/family is just in my head. i wondered why a parent is different when they are around you and then a friend. then i was like, wait who are our parents REALLY? So then, it just makes me think the entire parenting process is just lying through your teeth or being a hypocrite. theeeen its like, well they say they love us so possibly they are telling the truth but still maybe not. so you start to test if what they taught you is legit and then find out other people have different opinions on what happens in life and thus a mental conflict happens. you start to wonder, wait, im a really nice person and want no trouble but this guy just wont give up on how much better his opinion (world) is. i think what you are finding out is, people really like to flex their "ego" when their "world" is pressured.
That made absolutely no sense at all.
Are you saying that since parents teach their kids differently, everyone has a different perception? Or that our parents could have been lying to us when we were kids and we didnt know it? Im just trying to dumb it down a little haha. :P
smoke weed! and tell me you seen everything
Everyone creates there own world where they think they are secure. Understanding reality is an unattainable state as our perceptions keep on changing. So we create a world of fantasies in which we feel that we are secure. When we encounter another person actually our two worlds of fantasies interact. In these interactions we reveal certain facts and conceal most. The other person picks the revelations with which he feels secure. The game goes on. If you can live the other persons world then you can conquer him.
