How can we know if a tree exists when we are not looking?

Humans are sight dependent however it is no more yet no less but equal to the remaining senses. Therefore if we can see a tree but not feel it, it doesn’t seize to exist, it is still there. Applying the same logic, whether or not the tree is available to any of our senses is irrelevant to it’s existence. If it were to be otherwise, it would suggest that our minds create what’s around us which produces the destructive question of “Why are we then, incapable of creating what we desire on command?”.

An argument could be made that our subconscious mind has created the world without the knowledge or consent of the conscious, however it would be a frail attempt to preserve the idea as there would be many ways of explaining why that is impossible whether it be logical or medical. One way to explain it would be that the subconscious mind of a toddler is ought to be different than an adults. Which leads one to wonder why the world has remained the same since our childhood. There is one problem with that idea though. How can we make sure our memories are reliable? How can we know there’s a tomorrow and yesterday was real? The only thing we probably know for sure is right now. This thought process suggests a self-sabotaging view of oneself thus being less pleasant to the mind which makes this idea seemingly less probable, which (objectively) it isn’t.

The Escape From Self

We have a general idea of who we are however the average human being is poisoned with doubt. Confidence lives on a second-to-second basis, thoughts and ambitions even less. We think we are so superior yet we are anything but. We all have an ideal in our minds of a perfect us yet nobody knows how to bridge the gap. The key here is to understand that the gap doesn’t actually exist. 

The perfect you is locked up within waiting to be unleashed and people only realize the fact when a traumatic experience breaks the cage by chance. It’s all down to a moment of sobriety. Not from alcohol, not from drugs, not from entertainment but a moment to sober up from yourself. What set us apart and put us at the top of the food chain was our ability to recognize patterns. We now live inside the box we created, our worlds have become the patterns we created. There’s been nothing stopping you, you’ve just been searching for your keys around your apartment when they were in your pocket. The moment you wake up from the dreary, comatose and absolutely useless dream you call your life right now and look at facts you’ll achieve an understanding of yourself and the time you’ve wasted.

You’re lazy, we as a species are lazy. We are so incapable of actually doing something that we daydream to get a taste of our ambitions and move on to shit sitcoms and internet. The most important thing we’ve lost way down the road was the thirst for knowledge. Knowledge is like a drug, you’ll be addicted once you start using. You can become so much more! Learn new languages, learn about astronomy and global politics, travel, work out, whatever else and strive to become the absolute best you can be. You can look great, feel great but most importantly BE GREAT. 

So what is stopping you? When will you realize that while deluding yourself in your excuses you’ve become your own arch nemesis? When will you become the most interesting and amazing person you know?

It’s 10:27 in Istanbul and I’m off to climb the ladder.
