Why is it so important to believe in stuff? Because when you start to believe in stuff you also start to dismiss. And what if you suddenly find yourself believing in the wrong stuff and dismissed the right stuff?
This is the key to what Aristotle meant by stating ”It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
Why not just see possibilities? And if you feel insecure, just add PROBABILITIES! You don’t need to dismiss stuff just because it doesn’t fit within your norms and reach top ten with what you regard as probable!
I see this everyday. Whenever someone comes up with an idea that challenges norms in society, people start to dismiss and ridicule. ”That is bullshit! That’s a load of crap! That is silly!” Why? Why don’t we just instead say: ”Hey, that was different! How ever did you come to that conclusion?”
This is the key to discover new stuff! And it has a lot to do about HOW we communicate!
We go to school and learn about the stuff that is known and accepted today. The stuff that once was debated but dismissed is NEVER on the agenda. What if it wasn’t dismissed but put in the box that said ”alternative views on matters that has been established”?
This way Nikola Tesla wouldn’t be regarded as a brilliant scientist who lost his way and probably spent his last days as a lunatic! What if his ideas that wasn’t accepted at the time he presented them was held alive and seen as alternative views? What if we dared to question the current paradigm and investigate stuff that wasn’t chosen then?
What if schools set out with the intention to question what is now norms and promoted students who dare to challenge what is established today? Think of it! We would have schools that with every generation produced new ideas and new perspective! That is what I call learning and not just for those who attend school but for all of us!
The establishment today fights hard to preserve and defend that has been accepted. Anything that challenges this view is instantly questioned and probably dismissed.
And this is what Schopenhauer meant by stating: ”All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
We have been taught ever since we were born to trust authorities. Never oppose what is given to you as collective understanding. If you oppose you will be treated as an outcast and society will think of you as odd and off limits…
This is crazy my friends…
We must defend what is unique within ourselves. You are unique and you have your own view of the world around you. Never go down the road other try to push you to go. Go down that road you in yourself feel is right. And NEVER condemn anyone for seeking their own way!
This is how life should be. This is how social behavior should work.
We are misled by an elite who don’t want people questioning the current paradigm. We are duped by religion and ideologies that serves the ruling elite.
Think for yourself!
Be you, and who you are!
