  1. Should we make excuses?

    Thank you for your response, that is correct. Sizing the effect of something is very different depending on the person. This message was better to hear than the previous one. I am open to criticism in general and that is why I posted, because I don't want to do anything out of proportion.
  2. Should we make excuses?

    Ow, that was not easy for me to hear. I understand rationalizing and can see myself doing that, but cognitive dissonance: could you elaborate on that a bit? I myself might be in this loop, and being emotional. This is too complex for me to think about now, but I will get around the idea. Thank...
  3. Should we make excuses?

    Pretty sure, kind of like a half assed attempt - perhaps mildly. I didn't answer to see how he would react, and then he called again and said: "trying to make sure you're doing good". Honestly, I am pretty precise in my language and do not understand emotions manifesting in conversations to...
  4. Lacking a sense of self, "authenticity"

    My 2 cents, from reading your post only: (think of it as a general reflection, perhaps you could find something in it that could be helpful) I think you should be glad for the broadness of experience, it is a good thing to get that much exposure and insights into people and into yourself...
  5. Should we make excuses?

    In my culture, people generally make excuses for those who "offend" them, in some sort of special way (like minor offenses or they meant well). I have cut it with my father for about 3-4 years. Then we reconnected again, although we kind of agreed that we will move on from happened before (the...
  6. One mind

    No one said that different parts of the brain have the same goals, I'm talking on a higher level of abstraction. U just stated what I said differently, "collective neural network" implies all the properties u mentioned. A person's mind is consciously controlled by thoughts, the internet...
  7. One mind

    The internet can be viewed as a collective neural network enabling nodes to interact according to rules set for them. In order for this to work like "one mind", then I guess there has to be a defined purpose for all the people surfing, which will never be true since people want different things...
  8. Any smart and creative suggestions are welcomed!

    Very practical advice, unfortunately I realized this after graduating from college a little while ago. Definitely Mr. Know it all is undesirable to most people. :D
  9. Any smart and creative suggestions are welcomed!

    Let me explain. As you probably know the human psyche is very complex and people react differently to different stimuli. From experience, I have tried to attain deep relations with people, they were my friends of course at that time. Maybe my definition of deep is different than yours but is...
  10. Any smart and creative suggestions are welcomed!

    Very true, from my limited experience I do think that 3/4 is the magic number. Dyads rarely last (up until now at least). :D Thanks, it's always encouraging to hear that. In addition, we do not have the luxury of time in life to fear rejections. Fear is a waste of time, and is limiting...
  11. To those who are good at analyzing!

    It really is, but next to the difficulty in explaining something that deep is the challenge associated with language as a tool to transmit information as precisely as possible so that the other person can give an accurate evaluation in return, as you just did :D Well put, but the extra...
  12. To those who are good at analyzing!

    Good point, some people did not choose there lives. Looking for such people requires one to step aside from all appearances and superficiality and put him/herself in another person's perspective and feel how it is like to be that individual. Such friendships if found, would be priceless! To...
  13. To those who are good at analyzing!

    Life is very complex, the meaning of life is an integral part of each individual's perspective. This fact, makes it almost impossible to attain an objective meaning to life. Thus a smart strategy is to make assumptions that will maximize one's living experience! It definitely is the most...
  14. To those who are good at analyzing!

    Very true, one has to maintain balance in his/her preference to feel content. It is a natural tendency to be dragged out of the sensory world as an intuitive. I found that the main problem is that one looses touch with reality, and that was the primary drive for me to take conscious control of...
