The blindness of ego-centricism

It always frustrates me when I hear so-called intelligent people talking about things from such a one-sided perspective as if that perspective is the only factually possible viewpoint.  These people speak with such authority and equally cannot fathom any other opinion factual than their own.  Their perceptions come from the ego-centric point of view, which can only lead to blindness because they view the world as being limited to only what they understand.  If they do not understand something, it does not exist or it is an impossibility.  Such hypocritical thinking will never lead to understanding because the world and its truths can only revolve around their ideas of the possible.

The origin of individual personality

Have you ever wondered why you are the way you are?  What I mean is, where did your personality and characteristics "come from"?  How did your behavior and disposition develop?  Most of us do not typically change in personality from the time of birth to our adulthood.  Events in our lives may alter our personality, but in general, we start life with a certain quality and retain this quality until our death.  I want to speculate on how this occurs.

The Ego knows no bounds

Man has always had an ego-centric view of the environment.  The world, so to speak, always revolved around man.  This is true for the ideas about life and purpose (survival and desire), as well as their world views (my clothes, my house, my land, my state, my country, my planet, my universe).  This ego-centric view is what leads man into the depths of ignorance because of their inability to see the world around them from a whole perspective, rather than a component's perspective.  This is the idea of Oneness of All vs. individual identity.

Truth is in the eye of the beholder

We all hear about "truths".  We hear it from the religious.  We hear it from the scientific community.  We hear it from ordinary people.  Truth seems to exist everywhere, and yet it is easy to disagree with.  What exactly is truth then?  What makes something true?  Before anyone reads this and think I'm saying "I have the truth", that is not the intent.  All of my posts are only meant to help you think about things from a different perspective, and it's up to you to decide whether you want to consider it or ignore it.  My only interest is in getting people to think deeper about their beliefs.
