We all have multiple personalities… How does your delusional self impact your life?

We all have at least two distinct and recognizable selves that we switch back and forth between.

In this article we'll look at intelligence, but we could also look at the character, the attitude, the moral fortitude of the selves... but because I look at the world through the frame of smart and stupid, and only secondarily through loyal/disloyal, I'll write this article on the intelligence level of your two selves.

Now, let me start with a statement: there is nothing wrong with being stupid. As long as you know and embrace that you are stupid. Continue reading "We all have multiple personalities… How does your delusional self impact your life?"

Can you tell when you are stupid? dull? incoherent? Or do you wait until someone points it out to you?

One of the remarkable things in the book, Flowers for Algernon, is the new awareness Charlie (Charly) has about his mental state.

When he was just a retarded person, he could see the shadow of the mental feebleness, but once he got smarter, when his mental abilities decline, he can see it directly... not only the shadow.

Once you raised your cell hydration, which translates for most people to a brain surgery similar to Charlie's, you have a higher factual IQ. You should move to the same position as Charlie: when your cell hydration drops, you should notice it.

Of course, if you never realized that cell coherence increases your IQ... (mostly because you don't habitually acknowledge the source of any result, you take things for granted, no capacity for appreciation, etc.) you won't check your water...

Your behavior is always consistent with what you see… All your mistakes come from here…

Your behavior is always consistent with what you see.

And what you see depends 100% of your available capacities.

You don't even look... because you know what is there... you know there is nothing to see.

The difference between a blind person and you is that the blind person knows she cannot see.

Why can't you see? For two reasons: Continue reading "Your behavior is always consistent with what you see… All your mistakes come from here…"

How true is your truth? Do your teachers have theory induced blindness… the world is still flat where human behavior is concerned?

This article is about the inner workings of a human... that if you get it wrong, the price you pay for the error is your life.

Is a human like a assembled faucet? When it drips you have to replace the whole thing?

I energize my water in a 5 gallon (20 liter) plastic containers with a spigot.

The spigot is replaceable, but I am not strong enough to unscrew it. I have the replacement spigot... I bought it a year ago, but is still sitting on my kitchen counter. I still need to be mindful that the old spigot, which is just another word for water tap... still drips. Continue reading "How true is your truth?

Sometimes you have to trust where you are taken.

I am sitting here at my computer, playing freecell. Somehow I find myself pondering the flowershop scene of the movie... and am taken visually and viscerally to the movie, City Lights with Charlie Chaplin. To the scene where he passes the flower shop where the girl whose eye operation he paid for works.

I saw that movie back in Hungary. I was young. And I didn't understand the movie.

Today I realized: I didn't understand the movie because I didn't understand that the Chaplin character was poor.

I lived in a country, in a household where poor wasn't a meme. We had what we had. And we were alive.

You could argue that poor isn't a meme, that it's a fact, but it isn't.

You have what you have, and that is not a meme. But what you don't have is not real, other than in your thoughts, in the memes. Lack is only real in the memes.

The answer is not within, the truth is not within… and it is not without either

One of the most important things one can learn from the 67 steps is this: the truth is not within. It takes a sea of knowledge to even start to make out the outlines of the truth... And that knowledge needs to be learned... We live in a world of uneducated, ignorant fools... almost no one is an exception.

That doesn't mean the truth is without either. Continue reading "The answer is not within, the truth is not within… and it is not without either"

The truth will set you free, says the meme. Is it true? does it really?

I sometimes get lucky. A generous person lets me know exactly what are the sentiments that dominate my readers.

Right now I have this special offer for health muscle testing.

Two things special about it:

  • 1. I let you in and I'll measure you, without you having to talk to me. And from my point of view: without ME having to talk to YOU... Less time, less emotional load on me.It's also that you can get your measurements and put them aside... no accountability to me. I won't call you on it. You are off the hook.
  • 2. I have a big discount. For the first time. And maybe the last.

Now, let me show you what this reader wrote to me this morning:

I have been dreading to sign up for your testing offers...

or better: to get the results. It's kinda silly. The getting off milk has been intense and still is a challenge, going to the grocery store - there's still a part of me that craves bread and pasta and cake and cookies and chocolate and cheese and yoghurt and fruit and carrots and whatever... and it feels like signing up for a death sentence.

Now at least I can pretend to not know... but then I'd have a list, black on white.... non-negotiable.

Context, Mindset, Backdrop… why should you care?

Context, Mindset, Backdrop... why should you care?

This is going to be a mind-bender, and at the end of it you'll come up a lot smarter, and with a lot more power over your life... interested?

It is all about mindset! Context is decisive... and what the heck is a backdrop?

Let's start with backdrop. Why? Because it's the easiest to see what's going on.

I say that the backdrop is more important than what happens in the foreground.

  • Someone says something to you and you are hurt.
  • Your boss assigns someone else to an important assignment.
  • Your experiment at making money with your first product is a flop.
  • You continually have trouble and emergency in your life.

The above statements are the foreground.

Depending on your mental attitude (mindset) you say it's bad, or it's good, or you have no opinion.

So far so good... are you still with me? Good. Continue reading "Context, Mindset, Backdrop… why should you care?"
