Inside My Head

Many people in the 3-D world have said to me I'm really glad I don't have to live inside your head.

Yet in the virtual world people seem to find it a fine place to come for a visit.

Isn't that interesting? My body gets in the way of people seeing who I am.

Is that me or them? Is that all of us?

All of us!
Its like being under 12 again - no concept of social strata, physical magnetism, the rat race - we are all just us and our thoughts and judged accordingly with no-ones social fears or prejudices or goals in the way - love it.

IHi Cheryl,
What a fine explanation what it is! Our thoughts sure seem to be working well together for most of us. Then there are those few jerks . . . :)

Dawn said...

Yeah, I agree with Cheryl. I think it's all of us. In the virtual world, others see the side of us that we put forward. Words have a way of streamlining our thoughts, both for others and ourselves. But in the 3-D world, we come at each other full-on, body-mind-spirit. I'm glad that other people don't have to live inside my head, too. I've got enough in there as it is. I don't need them digging around, stirring things up. (smile)

Hi Dawn, I like how Cheryl talked about the lack of preconceptions that is part of being here. I like how you talk about the freedom to put forward what we want or need to. I like that I am talking about freedom.

Perceptions are how we base our existence. The smallest thing can change how we see things. A beautiful women opens her mouth and possesses a shrill voice and our perception of her beauty disappears.

I would imagine that in the 3d world you also present yourself differently. I know I do. I say less and share less.

Interactions are a complicated venture. I think here we share a more honest self but also have the advantage of other's imagination. They see us a bit more how they want to see us.

Now I ramble. I always do that around beautiful ladies.

Take Care
Michael

Hi Micheal,
All that you say is so very true. It's interesting isn't. Which parts of us living which part of reality. I wish the me that lives on this page could be the me more of the folks out there see. I'm working on that.

Hi Shirley,
I'd be happy to do that. You make me curious. That's such a fun post.

I agree with everyone. Because, here in our virtual world, we see nothing but the written word ... we can form no real ideas of what a person is like. We MUST listen to their voice ... we MUST 'see' them through our intellect.

Sometimes I think that friends made in this way are the best friends of all.

ME Strauss said...

Hi Mama,
I like how talking this way makes me think about what I say, how it slows me down just that little bit to help me listen, how it tunes out the noise so that I can think.

I like how people I meet are the ones who want to talk and the rest just keep going. The conversation seems so much richer and deeper without all the fussing that 3-d things can bring.

I enjoy your blunt imagery, you have the soul of a child. ;)
