In this case I would ask my own mind and not someone elses.
If you don't trust your own perceptions then assume everything is a lie, and build a new life from there, is my recomendation.

You cant, You just have to listen to the voices and ask no questions.
Well, look at some historical examples.
As far the super lovers go, they tended to light themselves on fire or be hammered to a cros just to show that nothing matters. But that, does it matter? You tell me.
How can you tell that everything you think happened to you up to this point right now actually happened or whether they were all just a false memory.
You can't. You can't even be sure that 1 second ago you you were in the room you are in now. All you have is a memory. But you should probably trust your memory because that is all you have.
Everyone else out there fucks us over so much, so who else can be trusted if not your own mind?
i dont mind my mind lying to me, it keeps me entertained
I trust my mind, if i didnt i wouldnt know who to believe.
How can your mind lie to yourself?..i dont get it..you seem to think that the mind and "you" are too seperate entity's?...what you think is what you are.
my mind is not me but mine
My mind is not mind and definitely not mind!!!
This made me think of something I thought about before:
Say, you lose your arm.
Shit, but it is you who loses the arm. Say, you lose a leg too, Xshit, but still it is you who loses it. So you have you, plus 2 seperate limbs. Say, you have just the chest and the head attached to eachother, and they got seperated, did YOU lose your head or your chest?
Billhicksrulez i think you've managed to confuse yourself even more than me!.a Limb is a limb and responds to the brain's commands.if your head becomes seperated from your torso then i wouldn't worry too much about the symantics of which part you lost..cause your dead.I just dont think that their is a "you" seperate from what you are thinking.
Well, that's what I am trying to find out. In fact, I think that there is one part of you that thinks, and another part that feels. And together that makes you. Your brain thinks, your hart feels. Some people will be more hartpersons, and others mind...
ok, aimmebit stoned...
your mind lies to you all the time. you have to quiet yourself and here the whisperings of the spirit and then you know the truth

I really don't feel your mind has the ability to lie to you. Although there are so called pathological liars who do start getting caught up in their own lies and even start believing the lie themselves; but this usually occurs as one component of several psychiatric syndromes.
IMO, misfiring synapsas in the brain will sometimes cause things like deja vu, forgetfullness etc.; but as far as your brain actually lying to you....I really don't think that's "normal" unless you have some kind of underlying condition.
