Observation 171

I have never done drugs, Drank a bit but I have always had a clarity on my reality that I think has been pretty straight forward. I have a great imagination for someone my age I like to believe. Routine comes to mind while planning how I do everything that I do. I feel like I am in a good place yet I look at what is going on in the world with my “adult” eyes and I have lots questions.

If you know that explaining a given situation in detail is important to the statement of calling something a fact. How do you manage to mess that up? Take for example the description of any given transaction at a convenience store. You have a Customer, a Cashier, the product, and the price.  Basic information to follow. The customer chooses the product brings it to the cashier and pays the price. Those are FACTS. Nothing in that is opinion because it all can be proven by way of description.

Now if you go into more detail on that same situation it can become complicated. How did the person walk into the store? Walked, Ran, Skipped, or Jumped? What did the person choose for the product? etc etc.. Details and descriptions of things I feel are the source of our biggest problems currently. I thought for a long time it was Education but I think it’s more so the details in the Education that have become a bigger problem.

Everyone knows what a color wheel is. It describes the basic relationships between colors. Anyone can make it complicated by describing the tones, shades, and textures of a color. That isn’t hard to do at all. I feel like people have made this sort of thing just as complicated as that only they relate it to everything that is done now. I can tell anyone a story and chances are by the time the 10th person tells that same story it’s been changed in some major or minor way.

Details are important but I think the one thing that is constantly bothering me is how people detail things. I’ll have to write and think about this more in the future.

Observation 170

170 post about my observations on the world and people still act like I didn’t see all this coming. I have repeatedly said over and over again that our education needs to be improved. We need to focus more on teaching our children yet here we are in the state we are. People become very keen on looking for answers without questioning any truth to the solution.

I don’t think it’s sad that Facebook and false information managed to get people to believe in lies. I think it’s sad that we managed to get ourselves into this situation and got suckered. No one stopped and said is that true? The few that did say it just kept falling down rabbit holes of information that was not only made up but became so ridiculous to believe that common sense went out the window.

Hell years ago I came up with the idea on wanting to write a book on the topic. Now so many people have written books on it that I don’t think it would even get noticed now. I think that a book on how to actually solve the issues presented would probably work but how do you get common sense to be common again? Further more how do you prove a fact?

It’s the job of lawyers to come up with undeniable proof on facts. I am not a lawyer but I can see how difficult that has become on even simple topics.  You say something is red and people get very itchy to say WHAT TYPE OF RED? Rose Red, Blood Red, and so on. Is the earth Round? WHO SAID THAT? It just goes on and on and on.

If the internet is indication of anything it is that opinion and Fact are based on a variety of view points. Just become you saw something doesn’t exactly mean everyone seen in that way.
