Almost everything in the physical world goes through a
filtering process before it could become something new,
better or more useful to us human beings.
As a fellow human, I feel that we people are no different
from those things.
Everyday, we interact, and engage with the environment.
And sometimes, our environment respond in a way we
least expect it to.
It creates a feedback.
Something for us to digest. Information about ourselves
that we may have yet to discover.
Like any other filter, we always block out the big chunky
parts of the feedback. A story is good. But that's not what
we want to hear. What we want to hear is just the main
parts, not the full ten-thousand-paged novel version of it.
Not that I hate Tolkien or any kinda epic though.
So after the drama is put away, we then process all the small
parts from what we got from the big chunky parts. We try to
connect the dots we see, which brings us to the core idea.
Or maybe the final product, the filtrate.
An informed version of us.
A version where we've extracted the data, but have yet to
sublimate its contents into our mind.
Because it'd only make sense to discern whether the content
is appropriate at its cause first rather then to just blindly digest
the information and assume it's correct just because its feedback.
If we do that, we'd not only kill our identities, we'd create
clouds of bewilderment with the feedback's side. Know that
feedback comes from what they observe of you, and they
inform you in probable hopes of finding out the truth value
of what they see.
So if you just don't straighten things out, should there be any,
then you'll be doing something you're not even sure off, while
allowing the feedback side to confirm its own myth of you,
and boy, that myth won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
People can comment, critique, blame, hate or love you.
But if their cause to do so is wrong, there isn't much of
a point in doing whatever it is their doing eh?
It's ok if you don't understand something.
What you need are the facts. Not the story.
After that, you natural filter will kick-in. You may
be influenced once in a while by your enviornment.
But in the end, you're the filtrate. So filter it out.
Because it's sad to see people lose themselves to the
societal standards set by the community. Those standards
aren't wrong. Just that they're the most widely practiced,
and most acceptable's all. But just because it's like that
doesn't mean it's always right now is it? Mm.
