    Seeing things
    Seeing them as they really are....
    Not
    How someone says they are...
    Avoiding
    Vocal
    Avoiding
    Written
    Avoiding
    How
    Granny, Mom, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Sister, Brother, Best friend, Preacher, Teachers, Politicians....
    Told ya
    Each and every are just human(primates)

    In Life
    Your most valuable asset will your Bull S**t filter...
    And just like your engine
    That filter will need changing
    Every
    Now
    N
    So often

    Nobody can see things as they really are. Nobody.
    But everyone thinks they do.

    Since this is a philosophy thread...

    I can't remember my symbolic logic, but I think your statement implies, or keeps possible, that people actually do see things as they are.

    You are a somebody making a claim (implying that you see things as they are). If you are right and you too can't see things as they are, then.... :D

    I hear you though, brother.

    The voices drown out the seeing
    So many voices
    Which to follow
    Which to listen to

    I still like you even if you are prone to making statements that are logically impossible.

    One of my favorite shirst to wear when out is one that says, "I do whatever the voices in my head tell me to do".

    I catch people reading it and getting an odd look and I ask, "You seem to think that's odd. Do you think I should be listening to the voices in your head?"o_O

    Keeping people socially distant has never been much of a problem for me. :D

    "What a surprise!!" said NO ONE. EVER.
