    Our Perceptions and Thoughts are not Infallible

    Believing thoughts ,without checking veracity, makes us vulnerable to fallibility.(error prone). The automatic parts of our brain do not recognize that limitation. In order to survive, reaction must be fast, so that makes us 'mistake prone' by necessity. The biggest mistake we all make is not...

    Subconscious and Unconscious Thoughts

    The subconscious and the unconscious is much more powerful than you think. I find it amazing how anybody can dispute such thought processes. If you are not aware of how you think or feel, how can you make positive or negative judgements about your own actions and behaviors as well as any other...

    Subliminal thoughts

    Language written or spoken has to have something to do with subliminal thoughts. How can our subliminal thoughts effect our believe system? We think nothing about mind thoughts as a mind chatter yet somewhere in that mix is a invisible thought which we believe as truth and is not. The question...

    Thoughts promote belief and false belief.

    Thoughts promote beliefs and false beliefs. We since birth have been bombarded with words. Those words are stored in a memory module somewhere in the brain for later recall.We see we believe we hear sometime we belief and sometime we don't want to hear it. It would seem the more the words are...

    Does our language program our thoughts?

    What language does our brain use? Does language program our thoughts? To me thoughts are taken from outside our self and put into a memory bank for further use. We are bombarded from birth to death with language. My brain sees and stores these words. How does these electro neurons communicate...

    Why are our thoughts believed in the first place?

    I see what I believe is reality to me. But I believed I was in control of my life, I wasn't. I believed a lie so I would not have to belief the truth. So why do people believe a lie instead of a truth? I do not see thoughts as images but as hearings of the thought,(I see the thought as a printed...

    Thoughts on ethics.

    When we are born we have inborn senses, feed me, change me and hold me. As we grow society the world teaches us rules called morals. We believe them. But what if we decide to use our free will without morals or rules. We have our own (thou shalt nots). Do we then have a psychological disorder...

    Intrusive thoughts? OCD? I don't know!

    I recently started compulsively reading and watching videos about serial killers, mass murderers, etc. I've probably watched videos or read about over 100 different people. At first I was fine with reading it. I kept digging deeper and deeper. Then I started to fear what if I could be anyone of...

    Thinking about thoughts.

    I never use to think about thinking. My thought/thoughts were just thoughts that happened. Never thinking they might be useable to me in my day to day activities. Now I pay attention to when I get (a thought/thoughts be they emotional or neutral). All I seem to do now (is think). I understand...

    Thoughts neutral, believed or subliminal?

    Does our thoughts come from a observable outside environment or a stored memory circumstance? Is the thought just a thought without study or a memory thought with subliminal ramifications? A thought can be either positive or negative. Believed neutral believed positive believed negative. If...

    Thoughts Come To Mind

    "Hello thought'- Welcome to my world-view." Is my affect idiosyncratic or does this statement affect you too? How is it relevant to you? Do you 'have' a thought that disturbs you (a la Epictetus) every time it comes to mind? Bring it to mind now and simultaneously think; " Hello...

    Thoughts

    Our thoughts are brought on by outside circumstances we see feel hear or bring to mind from memory. My wife brought me to tears listening and not wanting to believe this lie as truth. I refused to believe it until in a moment it started to make common sense. I believed a lie and believed it was...

    Are our thoughts sentient?

    Thoughts to me are past language in words we have learned from birth and school. Belief seems to bring them to (life), if we believe them. One may know the understanding (definition) of the word but it has no power until you give it power by believing. In constrast like stepping from one...

    Multi layer thoughts?

    Well this is something pretty interesting. Recently I've discovered, that whenever I am kinda relaxed (like before sleep or bored in the bus for a long time etc) it's possible to know/feel what are your thoughts gonna be in a few miliseconds just before you hear them in your mind. I really find...

    Thoughts have no value until you give it to them?

    :o Do I now understand that thoughts are of no value until you give then value? Like love hate kill rape and such? I am beginning to understand external and internal circumstances create us to believe what our thoughts mean. But our thoughts are meaningless unto we create a meaning and believe...
