    Yet some people are convinced they are not what they are, which is causing some turmoil with those who know an apple is an apple.
    I think making you own reality in the contect of the thread, refers to someone's view of the world. Some people see an event, such as a storm, as catastrophic while others see an opportunity. The reality of the storm cannot be wished away.
    We (society) do seem to be having a spirited discussion between those who see the world as it is, what is real and those who do not.

    Interesting read. I notice many well known families who are successful for generations do not display excessive pride.

    Philosophers, along with ordinary people have debated "what's real" for thousands of years. The theory if knowledge, existence, all that stuff. In ordinary conversions I have watched peoples minds do this switcheroo thing between the intellect and their emotions. It's like a split personality. The two sides don't seem to know the other side exists.
    It's very obvious in the area of politics. I DIDN'T SAT THAT!!
    Few intelligent decisions can be made while in an emotional state but yet they are. Some ways too ID this state is when people preface their statements with "I feel" rather than "I think" It's not this simple and borders on Pop psychology if just used by itself but I wanted to point out these opposed mental states. Politics can be all emotion like a new girlfriend and a thinker won't make sense of it.

    So here's a test. Next time a volatile subject comes up in conversation, do you feel or think? If your anxious, breathing a bit faster, maybe a bit flushed, chances your stuck in an emotional state. A person can't think clearly in this state. Usually just observing your head's thoughts will move someone into a thinking state. Emotions are for girlfriends not conversations.

    If you do not control your emotions,some one else will.

    No one can be helped until he understands what he himself has been doing wrong and wants to change.

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

    I'm a pretty emotional guy but I work fairly hard not to get too excited when discussing politics. Politics is simply the practice of deciding who should be forced against their will and to what extent. I have learned that I'm much more efective when I'm not cursing your mother for bearing you simply because I disagree. I'm not even that reasonable of person but there is a tremendous difference between arguing and bickering. If I'm trying to insult others that isn't a valid argument.
