Believing

The mind has a way of making sure that what it believes is what IS and nothing else, so it looks for the proof for what it thinks is true and right and neglects all the other sources of information. This is a major hindrance to any sort of scientific enquiry , suppose you believe some animal is dangerous , you would make sure to prove just that and nothing else . You would never mention that the possibility of even finding it is enormously rare or that it exists in non-inhabitable areas. How many scientific discoveries have been coloured by this idea? . Is it ever possible to have a completely objective view or is it ALWAYS flexible and superposed with the solution to the quandary that we have already hypothesised.

Holmes said it best when he mentioned that he never thinks about a case before he has the facts . Are we as humans that judicial though ? That careful and methodical while being as detached as the scientific mind of Holmes allowed him to be ? I should think now . We are after all , HUMAN , and I say that with a slight air of disgust, not for our faults but for our utter refusal to acknowledge them . It would take an apocalypse or a revolution of a different kind , one that assaulted everyone not physically but mentally . It would barricade everyone from looking anywhere but inwards upon themselves and contemplating the true nature of their own existence and clarifying their ideas about everything . Every memory we have is false , every thought we have unoriginal , every single thing we do based on a level of predictability that any child would frown upon had he the realisation of how fake all of this is .

It will take a new world , a more evolved and sophisticated one to truly make progress in all the areas that we have failed , and there are far too vast areas where the magnitude of our failures never fails to astonish me .

The truly hilarious side to all this , is that I’m hoping to pretend that I myself am not human , and I’m guessing I could actually have fooled a number of people into feeling as though this article was written by someone who actually isn’t human , which shows just how susceptible we are to our mind’s quirks , heuristics as they are called . However the reason this article itself is a true catastrophe is because I too am human and I have no option but to say my whole view on this matter has been overly derogatory and plain mean; there not 2 sides to any story , there’s an infinite number of sides to it . It’s up to us to make sure we choose the right one to listen to.

Revolution

In V for Vendetta , one man creates a mass uprising  with the whole population fighting against the oppressive and terrorising government . I fell for the storyline , i was captivated by the difference made by this one single entity . He inspired people and helped them believe in themselves .

How many world leaders of today could actually do that ?

But I immediately reached a quandary, suppose we let one person dictate our actions because he made them seem appropriate , would we go to war , kill other human beings based on boundaries and destroy lives ? Of course we would  and have as well . So is there a justification in letting myself LIKE this kind of revolution in a movie when in reality I would actually detest it . I am now forced to define what is right and wrong, otherwise how can I accept the same thing under only slightly altered circumstances ?

Right would be when the revolution was concerned with making people have greater strength in themselves to overcome any kind of fear and oppression but at the same time not enrage them so much they are gladly willing to engage in violence ( look at the USA with respect to the terrorism and the rest of their attacks where there was such unnecessary loss of human life) .

Whenever I consider such a situation I conclude with a disappointing thought that dictators, whose sole motive is to ensure betterment of the people,  are the most sensible solution. And the only way to choose them should be to make them undergo a rigorous test where they are forced to confront EVERY fault in their psyche which would not help in the development of a nation the ones who show the best results would be called upon to make the right decisions.

Would YOU take the job? That level of responsibility would be the equivalent of holding everyone’s life in your fist. Its not unfair but it is a little scary because a misguided dictator could ruin a country . So we compromise and we make sure the power is distributed.

This is what i hate about all of humanity , we are ALWAYS forced to compromise , the biggest fault in ALL of our psyche. What if finally there was NO compromise , there was one way or none at all ? Would we be able to handle it ?  . . Happiness may be important  but living without compromise is definitely rather appealing  , I just cant imagine how tough life would be then . I mean i practically compromise every second of my life .. hmmm , worth a thought ..
