worlds under fire...

Does any remember the movie 'Dark City'? It came out around the time of the first Matrix movie and the theme was very similar, except there was no Keanu Reeves in it. The premise was this: Every night while we sleep, a shadowy group of aliens 'rearranged the furniture' of our world or reality and sometimes when we woke up, things were completely different. Looking around me, this seems like another truth hiding within a fiction. It would not surprise me to learn that the majority of people have their memories completely erased and their realities reset every three months or so. If you are cursed with the inconvenience of a longer memory or, heaven forbid, deaf to the magic pipes of the spindoctors they sold their souls to, they hate you for not seeing the emperor's new clothes...

Don't give in. Reality building should not be a spectator sport. Validation is for people who are unsure of their truths or too sure of their lies.

Nobody can claim supremacy over your reality - only you. Your reality is constructed of emotions much more than anything you touch and see and hear. Your emotions allow or dismiss what you perceive. Your emotions validates the input of one person and discards the input of another. You do play some role in building the reality of another person, but you have no control over how that person uses your contribution. An insult is never given, only taken. Same with a compliment. Reality truly is in the eye of the beholder. (t.y.m.)
