vertical line Posted on Jul.26.2008 @ 12:58AM EDT by shayne

i see man rape the land for its resources.

i see man beleive in set beliefs instead of THIS reality.

this reality is all.

we color the flowers pretty.

but in truth they are neither pretty nor ugly.

i see man fight over differant beliefs that are only in their heads.

this reality has no set beliefs.

it just is.

we all share the common reality.

setting my eye above the earth.

i see.

vertical line Wasps are kewl. Feed it a little rasin, it really enjoyed it. My father then gave it one of the red lumps of dried fruit since it tasted better, and it imediatly changed focus. Starting to nibble on the white powder of sugar coting, getting intense and really going at it. (Speculated that the bastard probably tried to have sex with the poor thing, something that was mostly funny just to me it seemed.)

Upon study, it looks really kewl too. Bright yellow upon black, just as I painted my light motor bike as a kid. And its face got this awsome "warrior mask" of yellow spots, did not look ugly at all. Just fearsome warrior like. My mother don`t have any grudge against wasps, so it looks as we have gotten a new friend (if it comes back today too:)

vertical line Ps!:)
Beliefs should always remain outragouesly positive, even thou form changes over time!
Best viewed from the corner of the eye in the grayzone where everyting is obscured and uncertain.

Extreem need to share certain beliefe with others can also indicate need for affirmation or just lonliness, strong psychosis, or just the positive affirmation of sharing the key for cessation of restlessness, need, longing, boredom and other mind made habitual ways of reacting and reenacting.

Perspectivism/the human subjective only has so many possibilities - only so many divergences, no?

We are the common reality, but the problem is, is that we dont share that experience.

How many realities are there within reality?
