I just want to know how everybody knows everything.
LOL! I'm sorry, but I'm reading through a lot of posts and there seems to be so much knowledge out there that people look at as concrete and share as fact. A lot of it is based on faith, personal experience, books they've read, mentor views.
I want to know how you KNOW. How do you know? And how do you know well enough to tell anyone else that they're conflicting views are wrong?
I'm here to proclaim right now that I know absolutely nothing and it is perhaps the most uplifting position I've ever been in. I've argued my views on things, theories, thought about my own personal spiritual and paranormal experiences, but when I'm asked for proof, I have none. None that can transfer to anyone else. Everyone's seem to vary so much.
So there we are. How do I know what I believe, feel, see, hear, think is true? I don't. I feel it is true, but I know nothing.
How do you know? What makes it ok for any of us to pick apart and try to disprove others' beliefs. I've done it recently on the subject of solipsism, afterwhich I gave myself time to think about my actions and how belittling, invalidating they could have been to that individual and I felt horrible. <----that I do know.
There is not much point in this thread or this post. I'm not even sure what section to put it in. But regardless of my judgement of other peoples' experiences, my feelings on their beliefs, etc., how do I decide and debate whether the other person is wrong if I actually know nothing at all? I simply cannot and I'm now starting to believe that I should not. EVER. It's not my place to impose my beliefs on others. Maybe share things and give them something to think about if I feel it could help, but never tell them they're wrong. Because quite frankly I don't know what's right.
Does that make any sense? Any relation out there to these thoughts?
