    Well, that's because I ACTUALLY believe it at the time I say it, so it's not a lie. It's the act of bringing one idea into consciousness, and making the others unconscious. It's controlling your own thoughts.

    It just... made so much sense to me when I read that book recently. I realized that that's what I do.

    I've just never heard doublethink described as a useful personal tool before.

    "I didn't like feeling like a hypocrite, but then I used doublethink and those feelings went away! Like magic! Order your doublethink today, operators are standing by."

    I prefer the term "stuck in a quagmire of confusion" as with my beleifs in religion... I'm not sure what's true and what's not because I can come up with arguments for and against everything and therefore just sit undecided because there's too many possibilities and I can't prove or disprove any of them

    That's basically how I feel a lot of the time... I sort of believe in all of the possibilities, and sort of believe in none of them.

    I can't say that I do. There are opinions I hold which seem in conflict to the outside observer, but that is simply because of imperfect information on his part, or my part, or both. Doublethink would require that I be aware of the logical inconsistency of my beliefs, and still hold those beliefs.

    Not necessarily. It means that logic exists outside of your beliefs, but can be applied within a time.

    Phase one: Recognition

    Phase two: Time

    Phase three: Relevancy


    Phase three doesn't negate phase one, phase two is the catalyst.

    I'm not understanding what you are saying. I was under the impression that doublethink meant being aware of the logical inconsistency of one's beliefs, but still holding those beliefs. It does not?
