|I do not believe in names so I have called myself quite simply, me.
By 'Everything' I mean precisely everything. All that we know, laws, physics, people, objects, inventions this site, or perhaps ME.
I hope you don't get what I am about to tell you confused with the Matrix, a movie composed by the Wakoski Brothers or possibly created by 'me'.
We struggle to understand the complexity of the human mind and some will say that we hold greater powers within. This thought that I have one which I believe to be a great one and should make any one who believe it feel great. My thought is- What if everything around you was created by your own mind. That we were not Ďprisoners surrounded by this false worldí- The Matrix, but that this was our world contained within 'something even more great that we will never see or touch.' (Another story that I cannot answer). That every face you see, the people you meet your closest friends and family were created by you.
If you are to believe what I have just said then ask yourself now, am I, (name) real? - sitting writing this text at a computer or have YOU already created me, my name, my age and this idea? What makes this idea seem great is the thought that although we never take credit for the items we use, we may have created them? We couldn't possibly claim that we invented the telephone, computer and everything else around us - but what if we did? Wouldnít this make us feel great? That every song we hear, we composed it by ourselves, wrote the words and didnít know we had.
The reason why I can never assure myself that this idea is nonsense is because I do not know what people think, do they think? Or do they just say and do things that I want them to do? Objects perhaps in my world.
I would like to stress again that I am not a mad child or paranoid about this idea because thatís all it is, an idea or a thought. I do not think about it everyday- only when I stumble upon a web-page as great as this.
If this idea was real then why would we create bad things, bad people and tragic events or simply people we donít like? We don't buy products and use things in our home we donít like, we throw them away. So why if we were in control do we create these things that only annoy us, could this be a fault within ourselves.
I would like to say again that writing this, if I am to believe this idea at present, who am I writing to - myself. That if I get a response it will be me who wrote it and I will have created another person, name, and face to add to the 6 billion in my world. And now for you, if you start to believe this idea after reading this, have you created me? Am I another creation in your world like the car, light bulb, TV you use everyday. How do you know that you havenít created me? Sure you can just say to yourself ďthatís the daftest thing Iíve heard, this guys madĒ or you can wonder, can it be true? Surly there is some logic to it. If we can dream and create people we have never seen, far away places and events while we sleep then surly we could be doing this all the time. It is I say again a great thought to believe everything around you and everything to come- books, stories, films, history, inventions, buildings, people, countries and languages Ė were created by you. Sadly this is the kind of idea that would drive one mad; please note at the moment I call myself curious, perhaps I will be mad in years to come. If you were to come onboard and accept this idea, knowing that there was no way to prove it wrong or prove it to be correct- Your own mind would not allow such results because of the limits you would have created by coming onboard. Now you will believe that you are alone surrounded by objects, I mean people. This, the factor that drives one mad. Loneliness. © 2004 SMK.
