Facts vs Beliefs – Memories & Projecting

It’s time to finalise this belief section; I’ve had enough of my silly story for now! Or until the next page.

What is the difference between an Illusion and the Actual, and why is it a big deal?

It’s time to step back into the complicated cogs again and decomplify.

Facts are not refinements! Although, they’ll get mistaken that way by the average vulnerable host.

From the top

When I look at my memory and see what happened yesterday, I interpret a record from an experience that took place. Hence, this is my  original  or the  impression  from the nerves residue before I started playing with it on a brand new canvas. It may appear similar, except, by habit, I slightly alter the content in a sneaky desire to filter and enhance things according to taste.

In other words, the fact is, my original slide, and it contains the best answers. Not my covert-photoshopped conveniences as unreal alterations that hit the spot. If anything, my impressions are key to unlocking the challenges in life, and not the distortions from my refinements phasing in as ‘originals’.

Now Here’s My Tendency

After I look at a fact so many times, it normalises and becomes borrring. I now need belief or a reproduction to enhance it and give it back the taste I once remembered (and some more, please).

“She looks a million dollars on Facebook or Instagram but nothing like in real life” – by An overwhelming fact.

In today’s world, I apply an automatic 70% normalisation filter when I see people’s profile pictures. Aka, The Offset. It’s quite reliable and brings me closer to the real them. I’m also less inclined to change my behaviour around the highly refined simply over a re-arrangement of pixels or a higher resolution designed to hit the spot unless you catch me when I’m on heat.

It just an organism, either looked after or not — glitter or no glitter. Someone’s nature is something I don’t know until I meet the person one on one. Two, three, or four on one, means, people are more likely to enhance themselves.

Besides, if I accept somebody else’s projection on their life as the closest representation to the originals they’ve stored, then I’d want to know them well. They might not even be aware that they’ve shaped their memory by habit. Truth is, he/she may have inflated or overvalued him or herself many years before I came along, living in Mars like I once did.

Tho, I do admit nowadays, I find myself moving away from these demanding relationships, especially after seeing how easy it is for speculation to drag me down.

Surely, we all have that one person who talks too much nonsense, does all the idling? Because, no matter what you do, you can’t get away from them. You can’t get off the phone or change the subject, etc. So you get drained, drift off and eventually fall asleep. 😴

Admittedly, I have a few left but way less than previously, thank God!

Summary

It is now simple to see what is real and what is not (reality vs perception/unreality) and  how I’m affected. 

An addiction into non-factuality or alterations gets reinforced by ignorance, which breeds double/triple/quadruple live’s (psychological spam). On top, these distortions/refinements need continuous help in standing (so they’ll drain everyone and everything).

Whereas facts, on the other hand, and although they may appear boring or overly normal, are rock solid and lay the foundation for me to move when I’m down.

Once I’ve settled into a steady orbit, sure, I’ll stretch out and play. Balance is key!
