6.2.10    Truth, the whole truth and the moment of truth

Only in utopia, the perfect world, truth is the only language. I would state that human beings are of such a complex nature that truth isn’t the first language used. Well, isn’t that a sad statement? But, before you begin to raise anger about how wrong you think I am about this, you must understand that between truth and a lie, a wide range of options exist. It’s just a matter of why and how important the truth is and how big risk one takes in using creative alternatives. This has to do with our abilities to ensure that an escape path and a trump card exist if any of them are needed. It’s one of those attributes that we as humans inherited from a violent history. However, most individuals live their lives as closed to truth as they can. Now for the understanding of truth; it’s obvious that the creative use of truth alternatives is a tool, which if used often evolves to a subconscious skill that the mind will use when it needs a creative solution. What most of us call a “white lie”; I also would define as the skill that may grow to make its host a great liar. So where is the real and undoubtful truth? As long as there is difference of opinion there will be no evidence that the undoubtful truth exists. One exception exists. The so called “Moment of truth”, which moves us closer to utopia, of course exists. This moment occur when we’re about to die and the mind has accepted the fact that escape paths or trump cards have played out their roles. In this moment a personality change may occur. Most religions refer this moment as the moment when he or she is being connected with the Gods. I would say it’s a lot less complicated than that. This is the moment when the individuals inner self take over. And if the outer self has gotten used to using many escape paths or trump cards in life, this moment may dwell in emotions.

6.2.11    Patience and frustration

So what have we learned up to know. Well, at least we have come to the understanding that things are a bit more complicated than we possibly thought before. Combining these things together of course tells us that we should give more time for investigations in conflict situations. How much time? What is a reasonable? Who decide? Well, the sad thing here is that there is no such limit. You can always get in sync with others and make up a reasonable limit with them. But how many individuals must be among you before you can set an accurate limit? As there are no predefined answers to pick, frustration will begin to grow. The more people that get involved the bigger frustration. Why is that? Well, those who will object your invitation are probably not invited. They would have been a needed balance that ensured frustration didn’t grow to large. Frustration will grow to anger if either answers are given or balance exists.

6.2.12    Rumors

In a situation of frustration and impatience, seeds of rumors grow well. It’s a simple calculation to make; if one speak about something that an audience is extra sensible about, one get extra attention. This is the basic edge of manipulation, which in time will grow to a confrontation were the rumor has to be verified. Understanding this, one can relate spreading rumors to an act based on reasons.

6.2.13    Acts and reasons

- “We all have our reasons, what’s yours?” is a well known and well used line. And it describes us humans very well. All acts have reasons. And reasons are both conscious and subconscious. Understanding the actor, no matter how complicated his/hers acts are, is of course the most vital part in cognitive empathy. If the act is of a violent character, understanding will result in forgiveness. But it does not mean that the actor is free to do the same violent act again nor does it free the actor from punishment and/or treatment. The forgiving react enlightens the actor and possible will he/she come to understand his/hers own acts and reasons. A fundamental part of the actor’s psychological evolution.

6.2.14    Cause and effect

The “cause and effect factor” is probably the hardest thing for human mind to understand. It’s easy to say that you know why “x” was the consequence of “y”. But in a macro perspective things get complicated. The well known metaphore “The Butterfly Effect” encapsulates this well. This is the meaning:

-    “The wind caused by wingbeats of a butterfly in one part of the world may be the initial cause which may result in a giant hurricane that may kill thousands of lives in another part of the world.”

The idea behind this is of course to describe the world as an integrated and interacting organism. I would add that it’s alike with cause and effect in the human mind evolution:

-    “Words and acts in one part of the world can make revolutions and wars in another”.

The main reason is of course that we have been raised in societies with different backgrounds and structures and are individually possessed with different mindsets. As long as the “Global Society” consists of societies with structures that aren’t compatible and/or in direct conflict with each others; the world will continue to contain conflicts, revolutions and wars. And of course it’s the individual man/woman who will be affected.

6.2.15    The century of Lies

The 17th century is by many referred to as the century of lies. During the “Reformation”, history became increasingly important and some rich and profound individuals saw their chance to relate themselves with the great ones in history and thereby become of higher rank. The result was a wave of history books, based of nothing else than lies. With this knowledge, you also understand that you should never create a view of history just by opening a history book. The correct view of history is gathered by collecting and correlating many different sources. And even then you can’t be 100% sure.

-    “History is written and preserved by the winning civilization”.

This creates interesting thoughts. What if the Nazis had won in World War II? Then, if you were among the ones who were accepted, what would your view of history be? Allied forces, most likely would have been presented in quite a different light.
