Going with the flow is easier if you know which way the flow is going.

People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

I knew being sober isn't the problem, I just didn't know when.

Isaac Asimov
When we consider either the history of opinion, or the ordinary conduct of human life, to what is it to be ascribed that the one and the other are no worse than they are? Not certainly to the inherent force of the human understanding; for, on any matter not self-evident, there are ninety-nine persons totally incapable of judging of it, for one who is capable; and the capacity of the hundredth person is only comparative; for the majority of the eminent men of every past generation held many opinions now known to be erroneous, and did or approved numerous things which no one will now justify. Why is it, then, that there is on the whole a preponderance among mankind of rational opinions and rational conduct? If there really is this preponderance—which there must be, unless human affairs are, and have always been, in an almost desperate state—it is owing to a quality of the human mind, the source of everything respectable in man either as an intellectual or as a moral being, namely, that his errors are corrigible. He is capable of rectifying his mistakes, by discussion and experience. Not by experience alone. There must be discussion, to show how experience is to be interpreted. Wrong opinions and practices gradually yield to fact and argument: but facts[Pg 37] and arguments, to produce any effect on the mind, must be brought before it. Very few facts are able to tell their own story, without comments to bring out their meaning. The whole strength and value, then, of human judgment, depending on the one property, that it can be set right when it is wrong, reliance can be placed on it only when the means of setting it right are kept constantly at hand. In the case of any person whose judgment is really deserving of confidence, how has it become so? Because he has kept his mind open to criticism of his opinions and conduct. Because it has been his practice to listen to all that could be said against him; to profit by as much of it as was just, and expound to himself, and upon occasion to others, the fallacy of what was fallacious. Because he has felt, that the only way in which a human being can make some approach to knowing the whole of a subject, is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion, and studying all modes in which it can be looked at by every character of mind. No wise man ever acquired his wisdom in any mode but this; nor is it in the nature of human intellect to become wise in any other manner. The steady habit of correcting and completing his own opinion by collating it[Pg 38] with those of others, so far from causing doubt and hesitation in carrying it into practice, is the only stable foundation for a just reliance on it: for, being cognisant of all that can, at least obviously, be said against him, and having taken up his position against all gainsayers—knowing that he has sought for objections and difficulties, instead of avoiding them, and has shut out no light which can be thrown upon the subject from any quarter—he has a right to think his judgment better than that of any person, or any multitude, who have not gone through a similar process.

Ive been thinking my phone has been hacked also. By the Russians or someone trying to make me think it's the Russians. I keep seeing Russian titles for porn videos, when the site was banned in Russia firstly, and im seeing a disproportionate amount. I'm sure it's more likely a cognitive bias.

Where it gets really weird, in a Jungian synchronicty from hell type deal is I also keep seeing an English word in the title of a video as though someone or group is trying to let me know I'm hacked. I'm also aware of this bias, I.e same one as always looking at your watch when it's a certain time seemingly. But im seeing it way overly used. it's simply way too often and way too bland a noun to be used as often as I'm expected to believe it is out of free will of the people . It's sometimes doesn't even seem to fit where I have to stop and think of the many benefits of the doubt I must give.

Last but not least, I had another app open on my phone, and a big ad flashes with the same word there with an exclamation point, and is just made no sense at all. And I'd be hard pressed to apply Ockham's razor at this point between the two choices.

I wrote a lot of uninteresting stuff here. But I realised something interesting. I realized that I can only care for so long about things I thought Id bring to the grave. Just don't mess with my money is all. I've not watched this much porn before COVID. I've heard many say the same.

I'd have still kept all the above to myself if it weren't for this now. Brian said to Ryan lately, that it's a bad idea to test people generally speaking. That resonated with me but I didn't remember or care enough why at the time. Well I was reminded why. Just when I'm stressed to the max. I had some people in work try to test me. There's nothing worse than feeling like you're been tested sneakily for others entertainment or what deeper reason I'm not sure, that Is guised as a real problem where people drag it out, pretend they know less than they let on. Especially When blindsided with the problem. You're now suddenly more occupied with whether you're being messed with, pure and simple. On top of which, they aren't aware when you copped them, and foolishly keep it up thinking you're upset because you can't figure out a probably simple problem, you definitely don't care about because there's a bigger problem now, that there are petty snakes everywhere, always. Or could it be that youre being paranoid. Well you got to choose and when people **** with you, you know it deep down.

If I really thought my phone was hacked, I'd be checking my banking apps and such. I'm not. ( Or I subconsciously believe the hackers are too sophisticated to be intetested in what I have) But I'm being facetious to leave a little doubt in your minds as to whether I was really being tested or have I done gone mad also. Nah, I was being tested alright. But wait, how sad must one be to get off on believing they know more than you in a particular instance. And why me. What is it about me that me coming across slow is all the rage and worth conspiring for? Is it because i have a mannerism that leads people to severely underestimate me or is the opposite: because get a kick out of me shitting the bed because I usually don't. Or is solipsism or certain eastern philosophical traditions true and I'm ****ing with myself.

Either way, there's no doubt the world is getting crazier.

I gave away so much info there about my life that I can see AIs identifying me, no problem one of these. Hey Google, who wrote this post? That's so and so living such and such. He also has accounts here and there...

To the gods:
So I can level with you if you want. If you want me to tell you what I think is true and what I think happened to me in my life and every moment of my life, even the "disassociated" moments, I can tell you what I think. I can tell you what I think is true. I don't know if that's really what you want, though. Just like I'm unsure if I really want to know your side of the story. Maybe its best if we unravel together slowly? Over time?

To you:
Regan ****ed with your money, not anyone else, imo.
But im no expert in economics or anything save for playing guitar.
Sometimes people laugh at people because they were trained not to cry with them.
I have negative $220 last time I looked, I'm not worried.
If you are connected to the internet, you are hacked, thats a fact, imho.
I dont want to accept that fact, but thats b/c I like to put up blinders to make life easy for myself, imo.

Also, wouldn't it be rude to "out" someone? I feel like I cant do that, ever again, even if I know they are outing me. That doesn't mean that its right or that I will do it to them. The best I can do is wink at them and give them hints that I feel like they should out themselves. But if I say "you should out yourself for xyz" then I've just outed them for xyz. ****. My bad I wont do that anymore.

You see a camera, I see desire in evil eyes.
Big brother doesnt care about your kids, pedophiles do, and they know how to hack.
Whenever I see a camera, I see a pedophile behind it.
I know how they work, they have spent a lot of time around me when I was growing up.
A lot of mormons are pedophiles and there are a lot of mormons here in Boise

No bro, cameras are useful.
They are connected to the internet and let us share pictures of ourselves with other people.
This way we can feel good about ourselves, like a drug.
And I've lived my whole life with it so I dont know how to live without it.
The internet is not an addicting drug that we give to kids.
I can stop the internet whenever I want.
Its not addicting.
Its like, all my friends do it, but I can stop doing it.
Like an alcoholic who spends his life in a bar.

The truth is that I love that argument. I think its ****ing amazing. But I will be put down for it b/c it makes people feel bad instead of good, and people dont like to feel bad, and they dont like the person who makes them feel bad. They dont like people who take away their drugs or even talk about taking away their drugs. But I dont care, I'm a good teacher, and I dont care if you dont like me, b/c your growing and becoming human at the expense of my desire to be liked by you. I just need to be liked enough to stay alive, thats all.
