    have you ever thought about the possiblity that things you feel, see, hear, smell, and taste are different from the way they do to other people??

    like, what if you tasted an apple, and you handed that apple to your friend. they take a bite, and explain to you what it tasted like to them. but when they explain it to you, the explination you hear is just how it tasted to you. but, they're actually explaining something else, and it actually has a different taste to everyone who tastes it...

    or like, when you're with someone and you hear a sound, and the other person hears the sound, you both actually hear two different sounds. and when you ask the other person what it sounded like, the explination they give just computes in your head as the answer you expected to hear. although that's not what they were actually saying...

    i dunno if that makes any sense, but i've thought about that a couple times, before.

    All that realy exists is perception.... It's all about your perception of it, who could ever know the perceptions of someone else?

    that's what i'm saying. you'd never know. but like, what if everything in the entire world that you percieve, is only like that to you. they way your family looks, sounds, feels...they way YOU look and sound and feel...it could all be completely the opposite to someone else....

    Hehe, I think about this all the time!
    You just can never know... It's like the color thing... This leads me to wonder, how much can one change how they see things? What if you could like completely reverse your own perceptions? :D

    this is too bizarre of a conversation, cuz i swear this afternoon i had this exact convo with a friend of mine over the phone......wierd stuff
     
  6. thats come across my mind many times =P. soul is right, it's sawlllll about ol' perception.
    on what you were saying, think about words also... communication, all we're hearing is words, just words out of our friends mouth's, and behind those words that person just said was a WORLD of thought, of understanding, thats they're trying to relay to you in just words, and then hearing them you digest it and make up your whole world of understanding, based so much on .... blah blah blah. =\. you know what i'mj sayin man?
    eh, all this shit's good.

    hey inbloom! how are things with alex man? i think it's beautiful that you found yours, on here also. it's amazing. i'm happy for you, i cant even tell ya. peace

    yeah, man. i get what you're saying. like, the words you're reading right now that i typed...they could be different letters and words and sentences than they are to me. and colours! colours could be seen differently by every single person...fucked up, man....

    and hey, thanks! things with alex are really good. we're in ontario right now, staying with her mum for the holidays and stuff. it's been going pretty well. thanks for asking, and thanks for the kind words! :D

    ive thought about stuff like this before and its really weird how everything you experience could be totally 100% different from what another person experiences. Itd be like living in an alien world

    you don't understand. i'm saying that even though his words could be different from mine, when i read them, they compute in my brain as the words i expect to read. but they are actually different to him, and the words i type compute in his brain as the words he expected. but they could be different letters and words and sentences in different languages and everything.
     
  11. that type of stuff happens, but not with like reading or writing, colors for instance thats kind of one but not really 100% of the things. And not everything can be 100% different to people goatman.

    We have this exact same thread here already, it's called "colors". It's the same concept but only discusses color as an example. It could apply to all perception, though.
     
  13. Fool did i steer the topics in colors direction? NO!! i simply used it as an example. FOOL!

    Yeah man, I've tohght about that so many times, but not even just sounds, tastes, and colours, but everything. All possible perceptions, completly different, like, if i were to switch minds with someone, then, all the perceptions would confuse me, because, im in a different mind.

    Revenant Phantasm, you seem to me like a jerk. (though, ive seem some of your posts, and, ive laughed....with oyu, not at you). I've seen your posts in the Marijuahna section, and you just completly bash pot smoking. and then in this thread, you just call everyone fools. and before oyu say it, no, smoking pot, didn't make me think about this perseptions changing thing, ive thought about it my hole life. What you need, is some sort of imagination. You need to open your mind, and realize, everything might not be what it seems, and stop being rude to others.
