In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Agree to Disagree.”
“I contradict myself just to make sure that I do not conform to my own taste”
for me this person is shockingly,drum roll please….myself.Due to my severe nature of being an introvert despite the fact that i am incredibly opinionated and a very talkative one at that,i bounce ideas off myself ,me and myself in this instance me and myself being two distinct entities.
More often than not i disagree with me in the unending quest for that pure authenticity deep within,the cross examinations are intense and i wouldn’t say i agree to disagree ,we mostly put a pin it after all we can always get back to it later.
I am not sure if this is just basic introvert musings or a schizophrenic’s confession, although i am fully aware that i am one and not two(definitely not a Dr Jekyll,Mr Hyde situation) and it is in fact a very conscious and deliberate choice for the separation in order to dig deeper into my psyche and delve further into my truths.
Also i really do revere schizophrenia especially the hallucinogenic kind that occurs naturally is just signs of an even more evolved brain.For sure if the images do not exist then they emanate from the brain then the constructions must be created by the brain without consultation of the person.Clearly the person is just as confused as the rest of us so either they never elicited the command or the brain tricked them to do so.It is a spectacular case of matter surpassing form.Like a machine that extends its functions past its code’s limitations.
I stop there at the risk of sounding like a ghoul that glorifies mental illness or a fool who reduces the brain and mind complex to the simple workings of a computer but i’m just wondering?
