Everyone has something to say that would surprise people they know. Which is why they don't say it.
However, recently I have been launching assaults on the social norm. Even though saying this is the same as giving a penny to a homeless man and fighting poverty, or killing a skin cell to prevent cancer. Ignore that. Basically, say anything here you want...without being judged! No stigma attached! Be as much an idiot as you've always wanted to be, and this time people will be nonchalant instead of easily offended. Just don't make a habit out of it outside this controlled environment, because then it is socailly required for others to pretend they are a better person than you. Consider this a sandbox of sorts.
I guess I'll start this off.
Opinions are only a way to give self-validation to human existance. Thus, this whole post is an ego trip for me. When formulating an opinion, nobody ever considers what anyone else has said because they want to convince themselves that they reached a conclusion with no assistance. That is why direct confrontation never works; others do not like feeling that others were able to realize things before themselves. For the sake of irony, make of this what you will as it pertains to the content and delivery of this post.
Also, unless there is something fundamentally wrong with me, which I do not believe, people put far too much stock in the human thought process and emotions. Thinking is not a coherent process; thoughts wander, and come all at once. Really. Whole trains of logic run themselves off at once, and people don't realize what they're thinking until they're a good way through, especially when speaking. If you didn't notice, talking and thinking do not synch up; when you speak, you might notice that you don't actually think anything new, or you do so at a slower pace. This all means that humans run on instinct alone. The end.
Oh, and there's this part: we kid ourselves when we think we feel things emotionally. Personally, I don't, but I pretend to because it's easier than dealing with the immediate shock effect produced by not relating to someone else. Which begs the question of how many others do, and why others insist on holding community values over individual values. The only natural emotion is fear, which is instinctual. Happiness and sadness are synthetic feelings, and therefore irrelevant; true equilibrium is in feeling neither. We subconciously tell ourselves that we are happy or sad, and become happy or sad based on it. The next time that someone, say, dies, try and make yourself happy, and you will not be sad. Or when something good happens, see if you can spiral yourself into a depression. You can, by the way.
Fear is the only natural emotion because it is only natural to protect yourself. You know, to avoid death. And so on. I don't much feel like explaining this one because that's the end of the line, and it's more fact than anything else.
And now, it's your turn.
