“Never confuse what you think with what you believe.
People are actually very good at confusing what they think with what they believe. But then again, so are cats. This is why we keep cats on the blog.
I’m not sure what it is about cats that makes them so good at confusion, but I suppose it may be that cats have been trained to do this for thousands of years.
Actually, cats have been trained since the dawn of time to do this. It’s the universal human reflex. This is why cats are great at confusion since most people are unable to think for themselves. It’s why I can’t stand them. I’ve seen them with my own eyes walking around with big blank eyes and head tilted up. It’s absolutely disgusting.
This is actually why I have a hard time with cats. While they are usually capable of great insight, they are still dependent on humans to translate words into actions and to interpret images. They are really bad at that. Cats have also been trained to do things like jump up at your arm when you say “please” or “thank you”. So I guess the “please” part is also a bit too easy for them.
People often don’t understand how to interpret quotes. Most of the time they don’t even see the quotes.
One of my friends, a professional writer, told me to write down quotes so that I can read them later. I said I would do it but in the end I didn’t. I dont know what she was trying to tell me but I was just so dumb I didn’t really get it. But here’s the thing, if you can’t learn how to interpret what your friend is trying to say, how does that help you? I still can’t get my head around it.
When I was a kid I didn’t feel like I was supposed to read quotes because they were very personal. I was kind of like, “OK, if you could just read this quote, would you be interested in reading it? Oh gosh, it’s really funny.” I would read it out loud to my friends and they would respond like I really meant it. But I was really dumbed down until I read it out loud because I think that it was very personal.
I think reading quotes means you have to do it yourself, but I think that you should feel free to respond to someone who quotes you. I’m not saying that you can’t respond, but it would encourage you to say hello when they quote you. And I think it would also make you feel a little less dumbed down.
The other thing that people don’t understand is that, “I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ve never heard that before.” This is a common reaction. This is just what happens on the internet. The internet is an amorphous medium. Its a place for sharing information. Its not a place for understanding what someone else is saying. Its a place for sharing information.
