Our Differences

Chemicals across the board stuck to me like a magnet when I was a kid, though I don’t mean pharmaceuticals, that all came later. So what exactly makes us different other than the apparent genome factor?

Well, it’s definitely the range and density of my influences dug in over a lifetime, in both physical and psychological intakes that distinguishes me from you. I see things one way while you see something other, and now there’s a gap caused by a psychological intake or lack thereof. In either, you, me, or us both.

Also, in another choice that composes us, I look and move around in this world in the condition I am due to certain physical intakes, and you, due to yours. Which, either, tells us apart, or keeps us similar in terms of our density. Or the processing weight we place on these bodies.

And although we can’t match our genetics to become more alike (tho I won’t be surprised if one day there’s a pill for that), what I do know for sure is that it is possible to bridge the mental distance that keeps us at far ends. Because, between two unfamiliar angles must lay an unbreakable fact logic or reasoning, irrespective of whoever it is closest to. So rather than continue on the fight to devalue your annoying fact, I’m now willing to step away from a narrative with too many bumps.

Bottom Line

Today, what I consider the entity of ‘me’ is a lifetime of wave after wave conversion transaction or reaction from my physical and psychological environment. Which, covers our foods and drugs, and also our social, traditional, cultural, spiritual, mechanical and technical aspects, etc. (the hand-me-down thoughts/influences/traumas/qualities). Plus, any grey-area information translated from the oddly broader field that hardly anyone recognises, whether I’m conscious of it or not.

Therefore, I am basically my environment and my environment is basically me, is my background. Like every other human, I hold and recall memories that include fear, and these have me resisting against one way. Conversely, I hold and recall memories attributed in pleasure, which draws me in.

I’m a reflection of my environment as an accumulation of Life’s Trace Residue (Memory) takes over. I.e. My embedded signatures of pleasure and fear now run the show.

Also, by taking the focus off my conditioned name in an idea (Lee, who?), along with any other related conforming thoughts that limit, this frees up my energy for more useful things. Otherwise, I won’t see past my programs and into life’s deeper nature.

** Of course I still use my name. But it’s less important.


Speaking of the fear signature, a commonly shared mark, let’s crack it open and have a look inside.
