Perceiving that Illusions are Not Truths (Perspectives)


"It's all in the perspective." Is another way of saying "Truth is relative."

"There is no objective truth."

"Facts are up to the beholder."

"I see what I see, you see what you see." (I might take this one with physical things, as for the most part we both would see the same thing, just with our own attitudes backing up the vision.)

"Can't be helped. In fact, we just need to learn to accept the fact that our minds are ruled by illusions."

"Nothing is real. Nothing is true. Let's just loooove each other and live in happy unity, you doing your thing, I mine." (some contradictions there, don't ya think?)

Wait.

Hold up a second. 

You are going to use illusions as fact!?

(Apparently some people on facebook try to)





Um... I don't care what you think you see here, it's obvious that this illusion is just an illusion. No matter how hard you argue that it looks like this guys head is off, it's not. At least not physically. If the guy is as wacky as some, I may concede the point that his head isn't on tightly. But that's all.




Uh... stupid. It's either a nine or a six. Just because you are upside down, doesn't mean the rest of the world is, too. Now, as this is an illusion, it can be argued what that number is here. But, in real life, it's an either/or.




First let me emphasis that this is an illusion. Illusions are not real. They are figments of the imagination. Things distorted to make your eyes go crazy and your mind, "What!"

Illusions are not fact.

Because in real life, the men could have just rolled the logs apart and counted the correct amount.

In real life, if there had been an illusion, it wouldn't have lasted long, because truth would have settled the matter, and one man would have been right, one wrong.

Simple as that: Illusions can never support facts, nor prove points. 

Except here, where I am using them to prove the point that they can't prove points. ;D




Now. I actually kind of like this illusion... I'll explain more with my own drawings...




Hopefully you can read these ;D

Sometimes we have to see past our own perspective in order to see the whole picture. It's not enough to say, "That's just my way of seeing it, so there, accept me for who I am."

As you can see, some paths appear to lead to the same place. But in reality, they end up going quite opposite directions.

And in the political illusion, I'd like to add, that first off there aren't only two paths to choose from. And that, yes, at times they may seem to just end in the same place for all of us. But who cares?

It's better to do right than risk the chance of dealing with the consequences a wrong choice will most surely bring.

Not saying good choices will promise easy lives. But that's not the point of this post.

The point is that there are two separate ways.

And I don't care how many illusions you try to show me, my mind won't be fazed by the fact that truth doesn't lie. 



But there is such a thing as perspective, that has nothing to do with illusions.

You know the kind that has to do with attitudes.




"The glass is half empty!"

"No, you idiot, it's half full."


And then one could say this goes to prove that truth isn't absolute. Is the glass half full or half empty? Which comes first, the chicken or egg?

Real life illusions, ready to stare you down and make you lose faith.

But... um... it's all in the perspective. ;D

It doesn't matter what you think about that cup, either way it has water in it.

The facts: It is a glass and it has water in it.

Saying both people are right is not admitting truth is negotiable. It's just saying, these people have different attitudes about the same thing. 





One person choosing to be gloomy, and another joyful doesn't alter the facts.

It doesn't make the water vanish. The glass become a bowl. 

And it doesn't mean that one of those two are no longer human. 

It just means that they are choosing to show different faces ;D


Smile. The big, blue world needs your joy.



So, facts, you see, can not be changed. Attitudes can affect your perspective, but the truth of the matter is that nothing outside of that truly changes.


So, why not believe in truth, and be that one happy person who knows that the path they are taking is the right one? Sure, you may face hardships along with the rest of mankind... but you have the right attitude. 

And you can know, despite the circumstances of life, that the place you are destined for is much better than what others perceive as the end goal.
