    you are what you do, and all the self delusion in the world won't change it.

    There.
    Building a lie about how amazing we all are and what potential we all have is just the usual bullshit already being used by 6 billion people at the moment. And I know those are pretty stories, and I know we all like pretty stories, but a good looking lie is still a lie, and a simple truth is still a truth.
    introverted people wait and wait and wait to express themselves fully and unleash their inner world. sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. but they concentrate their energies in developing something that is nearly invisible to most others for much of their lives.

    as far as 6 billion people go, that is totally separate. yes we are all pathetically small, embarrassingly similar, universally uninteresting. typology itself can be a slap in the face. everything is pointless if your standard is to be godlike and control the world. the numerator stays the same and the denominator multiplies exponentially.

    go lie in a swimming pool on a rubber raft and drink a martini or something. your viewpoint becomes boring and we have too much time to kill until we are dead.

    Ni believes in potential and what everything could be...

    My experience is like that of Kyrielle's. I thinking about it much much more than somebody else telling me about it.

    It all comes down to mind over matter. Your actions reciprocate, we are social creatures, and symbolism has the act of guiding us, making us passive, making us feel secure and safe. It can be quite poisonous to society, even idealism if it is not balanced. Alogical all of it in the end. The universe didn't create logic, it didn't have to.

    Seeing the world as ugly and bad as made it universally so. Likewise, seeing the world as good and benevolent, what of that? Is that the root that makes what is seen as ugly and bad possible? These are all social dynamics and self preservation, not far removed from the behavior of animals. If the root of all problems are desires we in the end are simply amusing ourselves.. so how do you extend beyond the good and the bad? It is that limiting if you think about and almost inescapable. I think we are highly devolved and ignorant, we make sense of our world through social dynamics. And even our observations can only reach as far as our senses thus making our speck of the universe seemingly very subjective and our objectivity based upon things we will never fully understand unwarily.

    There truly is no freedom only the freedom we create in our minds to consider and ponder. And the lack of all thinking, there is true freedom if you ask me. Thinking we are gods I think is the real err. We are all reflections of all that there is and will be in my mind. The only goal is probably to be void of emptiness. Lack of resources can easily make peace in death for those who can't escape suffering in life.

    The err is when you create divisions, there can be no division because the universe isn't so. It is all mutable and indifferent because it can't differentiate it only flows, energy sequence and void that is all you are. Enjoy it if you can.

    Here is a nice song from Fiona Apple:
    All my life is on me now, hail the pages turning
    And the fuure on the bound, hell dont know my fury
    You're all I need, you're all I need, you're all I need
    You're all I need, You're all I need, you're all I need
    Youre all I need - and maybe some faith would
    Do me good
    I dont know what I'm doing, dont know should I
    Change my mind, I cant decide, there's too many
    Variations to consider
    No thing I do dont do no thing but bring me
    More to do, It's true, I do imbue my blue unto myself,
    I make it bitter
    Baby, lay your head on my lap one more time
    Tell me you belong to me
    Baby that it's all gonna be alright
    I believe that it isn't.
