words.

money.

all are man made constructs emulating from the mind.

not bad.

not always good.

what we perceive as of reality is mainly a man made construct.

reality can change.

always does anyway.

to see them as constructs of the mind is the ultimate reality.

another prime example of man made constructs is the physicological construct of the mind.

the ego?

the superego?

the subconscious?

all are models representing the mind. they are not true in reality.

we made them up.

these models are outdated and i personally dont beleive in them.
