...mainly due to the fact that it is valued at 20%! How is that figured? By the ratio of what senses we use to converse online and what we use in real life. You know how we defend ourselves with the phrase 'you don't know me'? Well, all we have to work with is what we give, so this defense makes no sense, even though it is valid. It has to do with familiarity and why what we type is familiar at all.
Y'know, if you read a word you are familiar with a number of times over again, you'll notice yourself see that word as foreign even though you know what it is; where, when, how to use it and why. It will look foreign simply because you would have taken the word for such granted that you will only now see it as important in conversation.
Sometimes you might not notice it, Take any example of a 'discussion' in this forum. Lots of people told you one version of a story many times; you will make a bigger deal about that story than someone who has either never heard it or has heard it once. After a while you will believe in your version with conviction without question.
Even if you do question, you will simply develop another belief [system] where you will basically do the same thing -- in other words -- you never learned. Applying the same formula that has worked in the past might not work this time, the chances of failure increase the more it is done. However, just because one decides to change their ways does not conclude removal of 'the gun to their head'. Change is arbitrary, infinite, and it does not exist cuz it's foreign to many
. All that matters are whether actions are done differently where there have been lessons learned from previous actions done differently.
Humans operate a 'one sized fits all, me and you, clear cut, results' attitude, which varies all or nothing. I'd be willing to bet that if any of you guys though of a ideal belief you were familiar with a number of times over again, you'll notice yourself see that idea as foreign [or be able to analyze it fully] even though you know what it is; where, when, how to use it and why. It will look foreign simply because you would have taken the ideal belief for such granted that you will only now see it as important in conversation.
Don't limit this bet, I guarantee that you'll see things differently (with varying percentages) afterwards. If not then ___ _________ ______ __________ __ _____ ________. Sux 2 B U, IMO.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
