So... You grew up hearing "you can be anything you want to be, if you put your mind to it" or "the future of the world is in your hands" and all of that bullsh*t.... so... Has anybody really figure out when and where this real life is?

For 20 years I've been trying to figure all of this nonsense out... Are we really alive when we think we are or is it a dream? Do you think that going to school and working a job/career is all there is to this life? Do you think music is a fad to get laid/to obtain some sort of fame/following or do you use it as an artistic output to affect lives and the world, as it should be? Are you a follower or a leader? Am I going to get "warned" because of this post? Probably...

To find the true meaning of life search deeeeeep inside yourself and find out who you really are and what you mean to the world. If you mean nothing, you're just another follower, keeping true to the path set in front of you from years of determining what others might think is right and wrong...

If you don't understand then you're too serious... if you are too serious then lighten up and enjoy the freedom of living before you realize that there is truly none left in this world. Revolution shmevolution. Honestly. Be human. Be logical, but be true.

Peace.

Forgive me dear moderators. You might know how whiskey can be sometimes...

Hmmm, pretty interesting thought...
I believe we're here and not dreaming tho. Any other thing just wouldn't make any sense. Now, when it comes to moderators and alcohol, Frenchy is your man

He can be a little "wooly" on certain days, if you know I mean?

I dont know if this is really a dream or not. does anybody else have those dreams you think are real? The other night i had a dream where i broke my laptop in the morning and i lived through a whole day thinkin about how it was broken. did all the **** i normally did and i finally went and laid down and went to sleep, i woke up from the dream.

Sometimes i think though, what if a dream is another life, but were the subconcieus in that life? and thats what its like for our subconcious(spelling?) in this one.

Thoughts?

My theory:

Humans are all the same. We look the same, act the same, like the same things etc etc. But different humans see people and things in different ways. E.g. That is why some people fancy certain people, but not others, whereas some people wouldn't think twice about those people. I hope I'm making sense.


As I type this, I know what I'm trying to get across, but because humans interpret things in different ways, you may all think I'm on about something completely different - due to malign forces at work, stopping us communicating properly and discovering the conspiracy. I could be talking about the government, but some people may think I am on about
something such as waffles, but due to the conspiracy, while they are talking about waffles, I may interpret it as talking to me agreeing with my theory.

I'm not stoned, and it's really hard to get my point across.


Also, what is reality? Just because we can "see" something or "feel" it doesn't mean it's real. What if our senses were put there so that they could trick us? Theres no proof that this keyboard exists, i only "know" about it because of my senses. But what if all of our senses are lying? And there is actually very little out there? It's almost like The Matrix.

I'm not a follower. I like being different. I don't like the normal. Today's kids all seem to be Brainwashed by the likes of Radio 1. Radio 1 tells people what's cool, what music to listen to, how to dress.

**** that. I like being different. and I get noticed because I am different.

As my headline says;

Dare to be different.

Personally?

I'd rather live this life than waste time thinking about it.

Life's short enough as it is, and you can only speculate.

Pretty interesting thoughts though. Better when drunk or high!

I'm not a leader, but I'm not a follower, I'm just me. I create music because I love music, and I want to create pieces as great as the ones that influence me. And whether we are alive or just dreaming, what's the difference, I see none. And to Andjustice... yeah, I've woken up when I've gone to sleep in a dream. Tis quite weird.

Not yet, but I have been into work drunk from the night before.

And I intentionally got drunk before my last ever shift at the Co-Op.

After all, what were they gonna do? Fire me?

Yeah, how's it going?

I very much appreciate this, a few days ago, i lost my grandmother who i was very close with. I've been going into thoughts about what death must be like and whats after this life, and honestly i worry about it a lot.

I think we're all unique, just like everyone else.

But I don't know. I know I'm not going to be able to live my life entirely as I like. But I'm resigned to that, so must make the best of a bad deal.

I do love life.

From the moment you gain consciousness, that's real life.
However, there are those who choose not to use this consciousness, and just do what they're told. It defeats the purpose of living life.

I also think that to lead yourself and pave your own path, you need to know where the usual path is. It's a learning process, like programming, for example. You could learn from scratch, without reading any kind of script, and painfully do it your own way. It will take a lot of time. You could also analyze a sample script, figure out what makes it tick, then use what you learn.
To map out your own life, you need to find out what a map looks like.
That's what I believe.
Right now, I'm finding out what this map looks like.

Your reality is only what you make it, thats it. Thats basically all you need to understand as a human being.

When you make a hell of a lot of progress on something. Say the guitar (most people here play some sort of instrument-right?=)) You often think to yourself "Omg, i cant belive i used to find power chords so hard to play" or something along those lines. As soon as you try to teach a beginner you see them struggle for a bit. They might say something like "Oh, its impossible ill never be as good as you"

Part of you thinks "Why does he find it so hard theyre easy, look i can do it" while another part will understand why and youll try to explain that the grass actually is greener on the other side. Theyll cross the bridge and understand and pass on their knowledge.

What im trying to get at is we all have doubt, even the most confident people question themselves sometimes, but when you understand fear, embrace it and let it help you everything will make so much more sense.

Life is all about perception, and as SoulflyV said, to give meaning to your own life. Personally I'm quite happy where I am right now, but since this is university, and I can't be bothered with a post-grad program, it's all going to change - this time next year when I hopefully graduate. For me, that is when life truly begins, when you start supporting yourself fully (no student loan), and making all your own decisions (I make all my own decisions, but still operate within the structure of uni... if you know what I mean).

God knows what I'm going to do after all this. I'm thinking some volunteer conservation work to start with. Maybe a little travelling. Then go on a serious job hunt. Perhaps a move to Bristol.

Interesting thread.

I grew up being told I could be anything and do anything but as I've got older this lie has grown thinner and thinner until it was transparent...

I wanted to be an airline pilot when I was younger, but nooo, my carreers adviser said I couldn't do that because I'm a girl. I can do anything though, apparently. Bullshit.

My Dad told me I was clever enough to get into oxbridge... my friends of equal or slightly lower intelligence all got picked to go to these special lunchtime classes at school to stream them for harder exams and prepare them for oxbridge, they were all middle class from respectable married families. I lived on a council estate with my alcoholic mother, needless to say I wasn't invited to the meetings. I thought I could do anything?


You think your life isn't real as a defence mechanism as you gradually realise your life won't turn out as you imagined.... still TS, let me know if you find a way to wake up
