I love this... very profound and insightful.If we agree on:
- Doublethink is believing two contradictory statements are both true
- Infinity as a fact
The world has two sides: object and subject. The "true" world being object and our interpretation: subject. We live in object, interact with it, see it, feel it, experience it, but everything is subjected to our view. But both are true. Some things don't leave much room for our own interpretation, such as the colour red. Yes, some see a more orange-y colour, some experience a more vivid red and some see it as a tone of grey, but we all agree that it is the same colour. So we know red is two things: it is what it is (the colour an sich) and it is an interpretation. You can't discard the interpretation, because then you'll have to be a non-thinking, non-experiencing thing. But those statements are quite contradictory, right? How can something be objective and subjective at the same time? Relativity.
To extrapolate it more; everything is everything, and nothing at the same time. If you believe in infinity, everything is possible, even two contraditory things can be harmonious.
Something completely different:
I'm halfway through the book now. No need to say it is pure genius, but that was not the point. How the whole society works made me thing of one person's mind. Especially the rewriting history-part. We constantly rewrite our own history. Every memory we have is subjected to our newest experiences and can become untrue. We do this unconsciously all the time. Don't question it at the least. We accept everything as it is, but there is also something in us that desires to uncover the truth (Winston) and does question everything and tries to escape from the way we try to obsessively fit everything in a point of view we understand.
So far that thought.
It makes SO much sense to me, actually.
