“Humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die. … If the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, we will always end up re-creating the same world, the same evils, the same dysfunction.”—Eckhart Tolle (via ihaveyourpie)
"I haven’t blocked out the past. I wouldn’t trade the person I am, or what I’ve done, or the people I’ve known, for anything. So I do think about it. And at times it’s a rather mellow trip to lay back and remember."
A serial killer said this. Sometimes they think more rationally than the people I actually know.
I was doing some research on our psychologists and hospitals and whatnot and came across the Rosenhan experiment. And then another person did the same thing as he did some years later. If I ever commit a crime, I will plead insane. Apparently it’s easy to be sane in an insane place.
I woke up (in the dream) and immediately knew I was dreaming. I usually know because I get this heavy tingling feeling like I’m high.
I looked down and saw my body and then I saw my body that was still sleeping. I had two bodies: I was controlling the one in the dream as I would if I was awake and my other “sleeping” body I guess you could call it, was just laying in the same position I fell asleep in.
I grabbed my sleeping body’s hand, picked it up and dropped it and it was just like jell-o
I kept this going with my sleeping body’s head, feet, etc. while telling myself to wake up. I could hear That 70s Show in the background because I fell asleep with it on.
I wake up on a dreaded Monday, realize it’s snowing on the first day of spring, my drawer full of clothes falls over, I realize I forgot to do a take home test so I have to stay after school to finish it, my computer decided not to work, there was something going on by my house and I was stuck in traffic, take out the egg carton and half of them are cracked and my lava lamp broke and somehow my mood is not ruined. Sometimes I even surprise myself.
Oh yeah, my horoscope said something about a mysterious force helping me face little annoyances. This is a pretty awesome force hehe
“Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.”—Paramahansa Yogananda (via infinity-imagined)
