Reality... Just our imagination?


Guest abigus

Recommended Posts

I seem to be being drawn to this concept... I don't know how else to explain it, but if anyone has read some of Richard Bach's books (like Illusions or Hypnotizing Maria) you'll know what I mean. I just finished "3 Steps to Enlightenment", which had the same basic theme. This really hits home with me, because I remember being a kid (kindergarten) and having a philosophical conversation with my teacher ("how do we know this isn't all just a dream?"). So despite the fact that I was raised Christian, I think I've always believed this sort of thing. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? xD I hope so... I'm so poor at explaining things, but I was hoping someone might know of any other books I could read that are similar. And if not, I definitely recommend reading these books :) If nothing else, it'll give you a new possible perspective on things.

I like the concept that it is not our imagination, but we do sign up to it, like an agreement. By participating we add modulation to the waveform.

Actually, my partner seems to believe something similar (she's even talked about "contracts"). It does make sense to a degree... I'll definitely look into those. Thanks for the response :)

Interesting... I'm pretty much against religion (not spirituality), but time and again I've been told by others I should have been a Buddhist lol. I should probably look into it. Thanks :)

hi, well, i have a huge range of spiritual beliefs and i agree with this concept. i think that alot of different things are true on different levels.. and also not true on some levels.. so er..

yes i think its entirely possible that this is some kind of dream.

there are people on twitter who regularly say things along the lines that we are living inside a huge hologram of some type.. i find this very interesting and i can well believe it..

however, i try to focus on physical reality more because i find myself naturally drawn to spirituality, and its a huge part of my life, and i find it doesnt always help me function and do things like the washing up, if you see what i mean.

like if this is a dream i should be able to dream that im cleaning the house and viola its done.. but to my annoyance this seems not to be the case.

but also its interesting because perhaps it ties in with the idea that "the thought is the deed"... that thoughts are real in some senses.. well i believe this also but im not sure how it applies to life in the physical world exactly at the moment...

my thinking on this develops over time. i tend not to have any fixed beliefs as such.

Read a story about a world that figured it out and sent out a message.

"Please stop scratching your arm. You are destroying our world."

Another theory I like and believe almost 98 % is

This planet is the insane asylum for all the other planets.

This one does explain a lot.

They aren't visiting us, they are dropping off their unwanted. ummmmm... being US.

Chew on those for a while.

Alexaz, I think you have found Ockham's razor on this one Baby. Brilliant! Now I understand why I have always felt so shunned from birth. I was. That, and I'm a lunatic that everyone assures me I'm completely sane. What did they know. You cracked the code on this wonderful big blue nuthouse!

Hmmmm... The ones that dropped me off must be a bunch of stuffed shirts! JodyAnn

Yes Jody

Who would want to live around those that thought we were the crazy ones.........Oh wait, thats just crazy talk.

Every time I think about it. This thought answers a lot of questions about us on this planet and why we do what we do.

BUT... Im one of the keepers here not one of the inmates.....Really !!!!!

And by the way, anyone know how to quiet the voices in my head ? They are driving me sane ummm I mean.....

      A while back, I submitted an application to Veterans Affairs for support for hearing loss.  My audiologist figured I had a good case, having been around jet engines for several years. Today, the benefits package brochure arrived in the mail.   I now have coverage for hearing services and devices.  I will be ordering a pair of hearing aids soon.   It also covers prescription drugs.  I had been claiming my HRT under my wife's civil service pension plan.  It covered about 75% of the generic patches, but only about 30% of the brand name patches that I prefer.  The Veterans Affairs package covers 100%, including for the brand name patches - I already checked!   And there could also be a small pension on the way for the hearing loss.  I hope to hear about that soon.  And there are various other benefits I could become entitled to in future.   The requirements to be considered a veteran are pretty simple.  You have to have completed Basic Training and have an houourable discharge.   I had heard that Veterans Affairs was pretty generous (my wife used to work for them, so she gave me the scoop), and I am happy to find out that it is true.  I need the hearing aids, and the full ride on my HRT is a nice bonus.

      Being of southern descent I use the Southern Woman Variant. I just smile sweetly and say, "Bless your heart" int that Steel Magnolia tone. Works like a charm.

      I had to get new wipers for my car, so that meant going to one of the big auto parts stores. I only go to them for fluids, car cleaning stuff, and wipers. Even before my transition. Because they don't carry real parts for my car.   So I walk in after work. I'm looking nice, have makeup on, the whole works. I'm sitting there looking at the wipers. I know what size I need. I'm just comparing the hundreds of wipers.   this 20 some thing man. Asked if I needed help. I'm like nope im just looking for what I want. He asked if I knew what I was looking for. I'm like ysa just wipers. He then asked if I knew what size. At this point I'm getting a little testy. im like a 16 or 18in wiper and a 22in wiper. I can't recall the little one size right now.    He then asked me year, make, and model of my car. I'm thinking this dude doesn't get it. I know what I'm looking for. I told him im know the sizes I need. He wouldn't shut up, so I gave him the stupid info. Hes like you are correct ma'am thats the sizes you need. I must have given him that look every man knows. When a woman is annoyed with them. He didn't speak to me after. Even checking me out.

      This sort of statement is true about everything related to my transition.

      Well, well well… I never knew.  They're still fun to bust - just not as much.

      I normally keep my headphones level set at 16.  At that level, I don't hear the bulbs breaking.  When I cranked the level up to 90, I heard them.

      I had the connection thing with girls/women as far as I recall which is about 5. Lot's of things I didn't notice because of life events. It is all mostly spelled out in three sequential blog posts, you can start here if your interested - https://stephiegurl.home.blog/2021/07/26/trying-to-look-back-through-the-gender-fog-part-1/.   Good luck.

      @awkward-yet-sweet. Yes, you're correct about transmission wires, they are mostly aluminum; particularly residential service mains (ie: from the power pole to the house). The vandalism was directed at the transformers, though. Electricity is transmitted at about 50000 volts A/C if I recall correctly. Residential power is delivered at 220 volts A/C. The transformers' function is to "step down," or reduce the voltage, the service main wires' function is to deliver the stepped down power. The internal wiring of the transformers can be either copper or aluminum. Copper is more common in transformers because it's more efficient as a conductor.

      Welcome Miss Robin,   I'm sure you will find that there are a lot of people here who have the same feelings, and experiences as you. I too, AMAB always thought I should have been a girl, and now a woman. I however took the male over compensation route, doing everything I could to prove to myself, and others that I was a Man. Well I'm done with that, and now I'm transitioning to be the woman I know myself to be. There will be others chiming in to welcome you. Look around, jump in on some conversations, you're among like people here at TransPuluseForums. This is a family friendly site.   Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Good afternoon everyone,    Here’s a video of my breaking of the lights. I found that I only have sound when I’ve clicked on the page first.  IMG_9073.MOV

      Hi im a 27 year old male or at least thats what they decided to brand me as at birth.   But im not sure about that , i have always for as long as i can remember been very different from other boys . When i was little I always wanted to play with the girls , we played with dolls and dressed up as princesses. When i got older i always had a easier time connecting with girls and spending time with them was much better then hanging out with boys my age.    This continues to this day and i have started thinking that i might feel more connected with them because I somewhere inside always wanted to be a girl. When i was younger i always dreamed at night about turning into a girl and i never missed a chance to have makeup or dress up in my moms clothes.    a few years ago i came out as Bi and i have found that I prefer to be the bottom with men that would pass as straight cis men.   I haven’t thought about this for several years but recently I broke up with my ex and since then i have started to explore with wearing womens clothes again. I bought myself a pair of high rise jeans and panties , i even bought myself a bra .  I also had a girlfriend put makeup on me.   And it just feels right , i feel comfortable in the clothes and i feel complete.   I know you people aren’t therapists but i want to see if somebody have the same experience or can relate.

      Good afternoon Stella, (only guessing)   I didn't comment on your September posting, and I love all the responses you received. My original coming out to my wife was much like yours, and the folks here were great help. I'm glad you are working through the issues that come with being in a relationship, and transgender. Suzie and I are two years into my coming out and slow transition. We have more open and honest conversations, even inside jokes now that she knows.   Happy Holidays to you and yours,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Wowie! Well...a bunch of the 80 somethings I've known had great hearing (don't even think of getting away with gossip if they were anywhere near 😷)  
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      😂 Here I was wondering if I was the only one who did that... its like I have a compulsion to do it every time the page refreshes.    I'm going to trot off now, chew on the furniture, shriek a bit, and maybe knock something off a shelf.  I don't belong in the house.
