The more and more I learn about things and people and the world, the more and more I realize that a question can have more than a single answer and chances of being wrong increases.
This has led to contradictions with self-confidence and I knowingly look for others’ approval even though I shouldn’t.

your thoughts are going in a beautiful direction 😃 i also had too many questions about this world,existence and all and i have concluded a whole opposite.the more i know about things the more stupid i find people.i think we have classified things too much but have forgot the essence of things.well for example drugs ought to be exception to natural healing of the body but those have become so common that people dont even spare time for natural healing.see recent example of that elephant killing,even non vegetarian people are calling it as a cruel and all 😄 their opposition is not because of sympathy towards animals,its more because its a rare case.so they have accepted the classifications (for example vegetarian and non vegetarian without giving a proper thought) without know the basis behind it,making them stupid and hypocrite(for me). so try to judge someone upon the depth of a person not upon their shallowness.i remember my ex accusing me that i love her she knows but i dont respect her.she understood the depth(due to some critical incidents) but couldnt understand my other rational decisions because of the classifications she was blinded by.she regret now 😄 another example i am remembering that she had a stupid girl friend and that friend used to backbitch other girls to her. i warned her not to be with her anymore and she was like you cant choose my friends etc.when we were not talking for a while that friend sent me some call recordings of my girl and i told her about it.now she decided not to talk her but why now and why not earlier.

I actually was in this state of finding everyone else around me stupid. but then I realized that life didn’t play out for others the way it did for me. And me thinking I am smart and all even though I was speaking the truth, I was just hurting them. So, I started looking for better ways.

the way to which you are calling “better” i would rather call that a corrupt way.truth might hurt but it ultimately serves its goal and that is reducing the pain that we are bearing upon and in both examples given by me you can find out that.by twisting the truth you leave behind only distorted facts and facts only lead to knowledge because they in itself act as experiments and doing things without knowledge means no grater distinctions between a animal life and a human life.now to the question about feeling superior over others i would say that hierarchy exists and that is a natural output.so if one is not claiming for his desired place or if one is not given that desired place,it hurts that hierarchy and reduces efficiency of that society itself.with great powers comes great responsibilities and if one cant take the hate that is coming to her because of her noble goals she is still a selfish person and a selfish surely cant teach anything.a drunken might wish to drive and if you are not giving her keys you both are taking the hurt arising out of it which is temporary but you did good which is permanent.

just a random thought…how good this world would be if a corrupt person would say that he is corrupt,if a criminal would say that he is a criminal and modi would say he cant govern 😄 😄 there would be no corruption,no crime and vikas muh k bajaye apne pairo pr khada hota 😄 😄 this is power of truth.

I wanted to write a long reply but I am writing a shorter one.

I don’t know if better should be interpreted as corrupt.
By “better”, I never meant “twisting the truth” nor do I meant to be manipulative.

Also about truth and feeling of superiority is very subjective.

You said you also had questions about the world, existence, and life. And I think you have drawn conclusions very early.
I have been there, stayed there for years then realized this ain’t the answer so, I started again and I stumbled upon psychology and philosophy. And realized how subjective things could be and how a question can have more than a single answer.
How we create these artificial constructs.

Also, I am not saying that you are wrong or there is no hierarchy or, life is simply fair.
I am at a point in life where I want to know everything but I can never know everything. and I have also realized that the person in front of me always knows something that I don’t know, even if I am very top the hierarchy, and the person in front me is at the bottom.

We are in a time where the world needs more smart peoples but does that mean we have to be ruthless.

You have put the quote, “With great powers comes great responsibilities”.
There’s just a simple question of what are these responsibilities.

PS:
If anyone else would have posted something like this I would have replied similarly to how you replied.
I didn’t put many contexts on the post.

you are contradicting yourself calling hierarchy real and truth and superiority being subjective only.for other things i would recommend you to go through deeply what i have already stated.but there are two things i would like to ask you here.
what is definition of corrupt…and please dont answer that it is relative term because it would again contradict yourself.if its relative then their should be a specific hierarchy at that give time and space and if there is a hierarchy it cant be subjective and how come it is possible that corruption is objective while truth being subjective.
but important question here is that you are claiming to be at the mental stage where i m right now and you think i have drawn results too early…what made you leave this place and what fault did you find here because i cant see even a single statement from your side contradicting any of mine.and yes you can write as long as you want i am a real good reader 😃 .

I am sorry! I tried to go deeply through what you have already stated. and I didn’t understand. So, if you might put it in simple words.

For example:
the “essence of things”:

drugs ought to be exception to natural healing of the body but those have become so common that people dont even spare time for natural healing.

see recent example of that elephant killing,even non vegetarian people are calling it as a cruel and all 😄 their opposition is not because of sympathy towards animals,its more because its a rare case.so they have accepted the classifications (for example vegetarian and non vegetarian without giving a proper thought) without know the basis behind it,making them stupid

These two statements by you, I didn’t understand the essence (what you meant) neither do I understood how these two are connected.
You also said that for you they are stupid and hypocrite so I would like to know your opinions.

Also, let’s take another example from your first answer, about the friend of your ex “backbitching” other girls to her and you warned her.
Isn’t the fact that you are telling me about it also “backbitching”?
How are you different than other stupid people. Just for the fact that you are aware that people are stupid makes to superior and less stupid.

Also, you said that she didn’t understand your rational decisions. Was that because she was stupid or just because you didn’t explain and you just thought that she was stupid, also didn’t it imply that you understand everything.

I didn’t want to bring this up but you wanted something contradicting your answer. also, this why I left that place.
Just because I know everyone is stupid doesn’t make me less stupid.

Okay! now I am going to clarify the “contradictions”.
1. I never said hierarchy is real, I said it’s subjective and you aren’t completely wrong.
2. I never said corruption is objective. (Now you will say I also didn’t mention corruption to be subjective.)

Also why I said hierarchy is subjective?
Consider the following examples:
Let say someone is physically very strong. Doesn’t that put him on top of someone who isn’t or less strong than him?
similarly, it can we wealth, law, idea or numbers.

Again you didn’t answer the question, what are these responsibilities?

this thing made me really think whether i should keep continue with you not. but before discontinuation i want to say that even this thing can tell you about “essence of things”.the essence of backbitching is moving yourself up in any sort of hierarchy by corrupt means if not pulling down other.i am anonymous,i didnt mentioned any names and even if i mention them i expect from you to consider it to be only for the sake of discussion,for the sake of our intellectual pursuit.
i dont find myself capable enough i guess(i might be wrong here)to discuss further responsibilities etc because i have concluded that i would have to hit the basics of everything to reach there.by the way it was a very nice experience talking to you and i dont lie.and yes another thing my definition about stupidity is something different.i never ever consider a person not knowing something as stupid,i consider a person stupid if she cant evaluate with reason even if she is helped for.

See I didn’t mean to bring up that statement the fact I said is that I have been through these contradictions myself and I still am contradicting with myself now and then so the post.
The way you bring up those things to explain things to me. I simply used it to explain why I posted what I posted.
I didn’t mean to hurt anyone. I am sorry if I may have hurt you.
I just think I have been there where you are because I used to talk similarly when I was there. There is a very big chance that I am wrong and you are in a very very different place than where I was.
But if you ever find yourself want to continue this further I’ll be here.
And it was really great talking to you. I really appreciate you being here talking this long with me. I hope I haven’t wasted your time.
