A Shade of Grey

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

A Shade of Grey

Post by Bill Wiltrack » Sun Aug 13, 2017 4:18 pm

.





Human beings are selfish, mean, & stupid.




Metaphorically, any concept that man can articulate contains the perception of absolute black, absolute white, and ALL the possible shades of grey in-between.

Each perception, or owned opinion, is correct and true for each specific particular individual.


Each perception is a position within the metaphor, black/white/grey.

And each position can be successfully defended even though it's opposite position can be considered to be equally correct & equally as true.


THAT, is the hell that we find ourselves in.



...good day.

If this is Hell then it's not as bad as they say.

The reason for this is obvious. Do you know WHY you are selfish, mean, and stupid?

Any examples of a position that can be 'successfully' defended although its opposite position can be considered to be equally correct and equally as true?

Any false or wrong position can only be "successfully" defended by the one posing the position and the ones who agree with it, and this position is only defended from assumptions and/or ill-gotten beliefs that are being held. These wrong positions can very easily be shown to be wrong.

Only true and right positions can be truly successfully defended, which by the way actually do not even need defending. Being able to see and separate wrong positions from right positions is the secret to being able to KNOW what IS actually true, which coincidentally does NOT need defending in any way. Truth speaks for Itself. Being able to see Truth feeds onto Itself as this is what is needed to be able to see the difference between right and wrong positions. Once knowing HOW to do this, then it becomes truly very simple and easy to do.
