Today’s challenge: challenge your own assumptions. Ask a question that you are forbidden to ask either by your internal thoughts, or by those around you, and attempt to find that answer. Why? In this, sometimes mad world, we get so caught up in fear, we let it drench us in stench, drench us in hatred, and in this we create an even worse world. And I am not simply talking about religion. I am talking about all of it: Scientific, Conspiracy, Parents, Partners, Death, Life, Love, Fear…every thought and feeling. Sometimes, we must ask new questions if we are to think new things.
“Never believe fully in anybody else’s belief system. […] I don’t care who it is. Don’t swallow their belief system totally. Don’t accept all of their bullshit totally. The second rule is like onto the first: don’t believe totally in your own BS. Which means that as Bucky Fuller said, ‘the universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events. NON-simultaneously! The universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events? Which means any belief system or reality tunnel you’ve got right now is gonna have to be revised and updated as you continue to apprehend new events later in time, non-simultaneously. […]But once you have a belief system everything that comes in either gets ignored if it doesn’t fit the belief system, or it gets distorted enough so that it can fit into the belief system. You’ve got to be continuously revising your map of the world.” Robert Anton Wilson
