Mind Games

The more I see, the less I know.

Gone are the days when everything was either black or white, when I knew right from wrong, when the difference between sane and insane was as clear as the difference of night and day.

The more I see, the less there are absolute truths, the ultimate right, the one and only perspective to look at things. What seemed before to be a madness of a mind, is now just common sense and a way to protect oneself from lunacy of the others or to hide from the insanity of the society.

The more I see, the fewer things astound me. I don’t comprehend more than I used to, I have just stopped in trying to understand and know everything possible.

It doesn’t make me dumb or indifferent. Instead, it makes my mind free and a free mind has to worry much less about things. A free mind does not have to judge things right or rate them from pure white to pitch dark black.

Seeing is not knowing, it is feeling. Feeling that there is nothing absolute. Everything is possible, also the change of one’s own mind.

Was it your birthday recently - I mean, you're getting old and wise. Sorry, I shouldn't have said it in that way but I'm just so tired. Old too, perhaps.

No, my birthday hasn't been recently, but I agree with being old:)

And tired, too.

The more we know, the more we have to wonder. The longer we live, the longer we can marvel. The less we understand, the more amazing are the things we know. The more i comment, the less i remember what i was going to say... and time passes by all the time :)

Right and wrong, sane and insane are all just matters of perspective. Just like everything else in this world.

SusuPetal said...

Hahhah, Isopeikko, you should write shorter comments, if you want to remember:)
But, I don't quite agree with that "the more we know, the more we have to wonder", because for me it's not like that, maybe because I've stopped to wonder.

You're right, Allyalias, and perspectives are as many as people.

and I also should stop here, nothing to said it all. And so well said. This topic seems to be in the air, the collective consciousness...:)

We do inspire each other, that is the magic of the net, Itkupilli.
