It’s that time again! Time to Interpret This!
…However there’s a catch…I am changing up the format, I’m no longer going to reinterpret the quotes…I will leave that entirely up to you.
But, what I am going to do is comment on the quotes…(pretty much what I was already doing). My goal is to get people to think more deeply about life by introducing them to quotes that they normally would not be exposed to…fair enough, right?
(Cue creepy organ music!)
1). “I think that in human evolution it has never been as necessary to have this substance LSD. It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be.” –Albert Hofmann
Albert Hofmann was the man who first synthesized LSD-25 and accidentally ingested it causing one hell of a trip(on his bike ride home). He and others believed that LSD could be used in a clinical setting to re-imprint/correct certain personality traits and disorders. Do not be fooled by the popular culture of the 1960’s that tarnished the scientific aspect and benefits found in LSD or other psychedelics.
2).”The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear.” –Jiddu Krishnamurti
Mormons?… Haha…I kid…I kid…
No but really, this is a neat quote cause it shows that someone who is constantly having to reassure himself and others by asserting something is trying to stave off some sort of fear, otherwise there would be no need for such repetition.
3).”Those who have never tried electronic communication may not be aware of what a “social skill” really is. One social skill that must be learned, is that other people have points of view that are not only different, but *threatening*, to your own. In turn, your opinions may be threatening to others. There is nothing wrong with this. Your beliefs need not be hidden behind a facade, as happens with face-to-face conversation. Not everybody in the world is a bosom buddy, but you can still have a meaningful conversation with them. The person who cannot do this lacks in social skills.” -Nick Szabo
I really admire this quote! It deals with the modern free-flowing information medium known as the Internet. This can be applied toward life itself when dealing with other people. We all have certain beliefs and opinions, we all recognize this, yet we still get heated when we hear something that doesn’t sit well with our belief system. We need to teach our children a certain level of understanding, otherwise our species may never progress as a whole. We should try and alienate ourselves from thinking that our beliefs are RIGHT. Other people’s ideals and belief’s are true to that individual even if they are entirely far fetched and do not fit into your REALITY TUNNEL. The next time someone says something that you do not believe in, do not belittle that person or act as if your belief is the only belief that is correct. Instead try and understand why that person may have that particular belief. Ask questions that will help you understand better. We will all benefit from this!
